What happened last week? Who “won” E3? How many #dankmeme pre-orders did each press conference get? Find out on this week’s Error! Report!
Tuesday was a big day for Microsoft. At an event in Remond, Washington, Microsoft unveiled their next generation of gaming- the Xbox One. After digesting all the news and info on this new console, I have come to contemplate what I enjoy and dislike about the new Xbox and where I will think it will go in the future.
Okay, okay, I like Halo. Ryan was shocked. Maybe you are too. Regardless, we recorded this pretty extensive look at both the campaign and multiplayer of Halo 4. For those extra worried about spoilers, we play about ten minutes of the first mission of the game before diving into some Big Team Battle fun. (Also, apologies on some audio weirdness and echo. This remains a learning process.)
It’s June 3rd, one day before the E3 festivities. You know what that means: rumors, trailers, announcements, leaks, and Ryan’s birthday. In this episode we discuss the recent E3 revelations and our excitement levels reach an all time high. There was also some mention of Joss Whedon and Criterion Blu-Ray releases.
I was legitimately excited when I heard Rise of Nightmares was coming out. I saw a demo and felt a unique atmosphere building as the main character descended further into the madness that infects the eerie castle he is trapped in. I thought they could pull it off. I thought they could master the Kinect controls, giving me precise and accurate movement when swinging a weapon. I thought the story was going to be full of B-level horror fun, if not frightening and horrific. Rise of Nightmares is horrific, but for all the wrong reasons.
