Microsoft E3 Wrap Up

***For a much more in-depth look at each individual conference, give our E3 podcasts a listen*** Microsoft, early in their console career, was a running joke when it came to E3 conferences. Their presentations tended to seem out of place, and they didn’t capitalize on all the exciting reasons there were to be an Xbox…

E3: Microsoft’s Mission Is Complete.

YOU HAD ONE JOB MICROSOFT! Show us the games. We as a gaming collective didn’t want to see or hear anything that wasn’t dealing with a game we will end up playing in the near future.
