Random thoughts on Microsoft's E3 media briefing

  • I have a weird feeling that because publishers must approve games, backward compatibility with Xbox 360 won’t live up to its full potential.
  • Rare Replay, a compilation of 30 classic Rare games, looks sweet. If done right, it will offer some incredible value.
  • First thought on Rare’s new game: it looks beautiful. Second thought: oh, it’s an MMO.
  • I like Halo but I don’t love Halo. It looked pretty, I guess.
  • The new controller that was announced at the beginning of the stream looks really nice. Sell it for under 90€ and I’ll buy it.
  • Don’t end a show with a remaster. It sort of deflates the entire thing.

Trials Evolution

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Trials HD, releasing later this year.

“We listened carefully to all the feedback we received from the previous game and added in a gamer’s wish list of must-play features, such as multiplayer, outdoor environments, improved track sharing, and many more which we are not quite revealing yet.”
