Hey Otakus and Geeks fans, Sean and Jeff here with our review the Microsoft Xbox Conference. We are going to give you some info and our opinions of what we saw.
First we're going to start with Halo 4 unveiled at the start of the conference. This story begins with an advanced Spaceship meant to be used to explore new areas of Space, but Ship is somehow disabled and crash lands on a nearby Planet. Master Chief is on the planet where ship crashes and sets out to investigate the crash. Master Chief not only encounter's old enemies (Covenant), but discovers a new one.
1. The Reclaimer Saga Begins: Experience the dawn of an epic new Halo adventure, solo or split screen with up to three friends.
2. Go Beyond the Story: Halo 4's Infinity Multiplayer features a vastly expanded suite of multiplayer modes, weapons, vehicles, armor abilities, a new loadout and Spartan IV player progression system.
3. Edge-of-your-seat Entertainment: Immerse yourself in Halo 4's graphics, sound and epic game play including a mysterious and deadly new class of enemies.*
Jeff's Opinion: The environment looks good, It seems to be a Jungle environment. After you kill one of the New enemies you pick up his weapon. the rifle looks pretty cool and fun. The new alien enemies look good also, new bot like aliens. It looks like you can still only hold two weapons at a time. Halo 4 looks good, but it feels like all the other previous games. I would like to see more to give a better opinion.
developer: 343 industries
release date: 11/6/2012

Splinter Cell: Black List. The events of the game pick up after 2010’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, with the stealthy super soldier pursuing a terrorist organization with a mysterious black list of targets, set on the Iraq/Iran border.
Jeff Opinion: The game look freaking SWEET! The New tag and Kill system is great and the new voice command system through the Kinect is a hot feature. Spy vs. Mercs competitive multiplayer returns, and there's a cooperative mode as well. The game is due spring 2013.
Tomb Raider: The first game footage of the game that aired at E3 last year. A bruised and battered Lara is seen hanging upside down in an underground cave trying to free herself. Once she falls to the ground, there's a series of explosions and she eventually makes her way out, only to find a massive shipwreck.This year at E3 they debut some new footage and game play. Lara is alone on an island after being shipwrecked and is surrounded by lush foliage. In terms of weaponry used, Lara retrieves a bow from a dead person and the next thing we know, she kills a deer to fend for food. Other weapons include guns, pistols and knives which appear later.
Other Games announced at their Conference were Fable The new journey and Ascend the New Gods. Both look good, but I was never that interested in the previous Fable games.
Hey Guys Sean ( The Comic Guy ) . Today I’m going to talk about Madden 2013 and Nike plus using Kinect. Xbox unveiled at the E3 conference how the Kinect will interact with both games.
First I’m going to start with Madden 2013 using the Kinect. I have to say Xbox 360 has done a great job with the interaction between the user and the game. For example you can voice the play you want to run as oppose to selecting it with the controller. It looks as if Kinect will Make the Madden experience little more fun for the die hard Football fans.
Xbox also unveiled a new fitness game. Microsoft Corp. and NIKE Inc. ushered in a new era of home fitness, unveiling “Nike+ Kinect Training” only on Kinect for Xbox 360. Featuring Nike trainers who work with some of the company’s top athletes, “Nike+ Kinect Training” is customized to your level. The game will track your progress and show you the data from your workout. You can even compare your data to that of your favorite Athlete.
Finally to wrap things up Resident Evil 6 and Black Ops 2 look amazing. Resident Evil continues the Game play we love started in part 4, along with bringing back Leon. The story mode for Black Ops 2 Looks great and the game play looks like it will be as challenging as the first one.
New xbox features allow you to connect different devices which allows you to take the movies you were watching on xbox and continue watching where you left off on your tablet or smart phone. It will also tell you info on what your watching for a deeper movie experience . They are unveiling their dual screen viewing called Xbox Smart glass. Internet explorer is now coming to Xbox with the help of Xbox Smart Glass and Kinect.
Overall XBOX had a pretty good showing to start off E3.
