E3 musings (day 1)

By now you’ve hopefully read all that Microsoft had to offer up at their press conference. I can’t comment on everything that was announced (Aeropause has a good summary) but I would like to point out a couple things that me likey very much.

The Halo 3 Xbox. I’m a sucker for these kind of things, and it sure is purty.

Halo 3 Xbox 360

I was suprised that it’s not the Elite version of the system. If they’re going to fleece us over and over, at least be committed to the fleecing!

I mentioned earlier I wanted something about Resident Evil 5. A teaser is what we got. It doesn’t reveal much (and being set in Africa, I doubt I’ll be able to do a translation page like RE4) but unbridled excitement doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about this game:

There is more, almost too much. The 360 Fall lineup is outta sight. My wallet (and my family) are already cringing. It will be NCAA 2008 around here for a while, then it’s going to get thick with games. Mass Effect, Halo 3, Two Worlds. Crazy!

    Meh, another sequel from Capcom, go figure. Will Mega Man X2 Alpha Hyper Fighting May Cry Neo be an unlockable mini-game?

    CAPCOM = Can’t Actually Produce Creative Original Media

  2. DR – Ouch! You just took the wind out of the sails of my next idea!

  3. I don’t mean this in a bad way, and I think the location is cool, but if you’ve ever read Black Hawk Down, having zombies in Africa is not much of a stretch.

  4. Nat – Now that I think about it, you’re right — I would imagine a lot of those people in the poorer areas that are barely surviving from day to day are a heartbeat removed from zombies.
