There was the much expected Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 game presentation, which we where mildly impressed only from the amount of interest in the story as multi-player will most likely go without a hitch. There was the unexpected with Ubisofts Splinter Cell: Blacklist and the questionable Internet Explorer app (which will tie in with Smart Glass functionality). But then there where the few that once we saw it, it couldn’t leave our sights fast enough. Maybe we’re just older or we just wouldn’t see the average XBOX 360 user actually needing or enjoying these titles but call me crazy, they just really didn’t need to have the floor for Microsoft E3 presentation.
Nike started out explaining that “If you have a body, you’re an athlete”. Yes, and though that might be true for the 24 hour Fitness club, our own Clay responded to this statement with, ” I am so not an athlete. I can’t even commit to competitive eating.” Now, we’re not saying there isn’t a market for this with Wii Fit doing so well initially, but I tend to sweat as much as I need to just swinging a Wii Mote or showing my awkward moves on the latest Dance Central while helping me forget that I’m doing something good for my body with actual game.
The other title that we shall never speak of again after this is Wrekateer. Now, before you go commenting, “It’s for kids Joe, you should know that!”. Yes, I do understand that kids can use the XBOX 360 and enjoy some Kinect fun, but with more original games like Gunstringer and Disneyland Adventures for the Kinect, I would feel like I’m cheating my kids out of a slew of better games further developing skills and keeping them from wanting to play my own games thus overwriting my save game files every week. Basically, picture Angry Birds, in 3D using the Kinect. Loads of fun on the phone can’t see my kids having it on the “quickplay” menu.
