They started out so strong then just fizzled out. They way they addressed Xcloud and Scarlet made it seem like they were forced to talk earlier than they wanted.

Highly disappointing conference overall. Gamepass is a great service indeed, but personally I'm not going to splash out on yet another subscription service. Most indie games looked okay to fine, but the biggest bummer was that almost all bigger games were CGI only, I mean wtf? Ori 2 was by far the best showing they had. Also, the Project Scarlett reveal wasn't radically different from what Sony said earlier with PS5, so no hype there.

Absolute fucking shitshow, minus a couple of games. Having cutscene trailers just does NOT cut it for me as well. What was up with the CP trailer and Gears?

Bad pacing too. Pfft.

That was a great series of CGI trailers for games that have already been announced. :/

Can't believe they didn't even show Gears gameplay. Not showing Halo is fine, and not that I particularly care for Gears 5, but it comes out this year FFS.

Certainly not a bad conference but given the way even insiders hyped it up... that was shockingly average.

Everyone will have different takes, but I don't feel like MS knocked it out of the park. On the 1 hand, I think they did a good job in generating excitement for the future, holiday 2020. At the same time, I feel like other than Gears 5, they are punting on current gen. I mean they have a large number of 3rd party games from now till then, but if you're considering a XB1, you may as well wait till Scarlett releases. Sony skipping this year changes nothing.

for me the highlight was Flight Simulator, Age of Empire and weird Halo Infinite trailer. Lack of info in Halo infinite is made me so god damn disappointed, I am actually angry

That was underwhelming. Kinda sad that Elden Ring is high fantasy (didnt see leak), guess Square is probably going to be my favorite conference.

Was okay conference, mostly Gamepass focused though no surprise. Annoyed we didn't get more Halo gameplay.

It was an okay show. It started off pretty strong but kind of fizzled out. Keanu and Cyberpunk were the peak.

Last year’s conference was better for sure though.

Oh, and I’m really annoyed that they didn’t show any actual Gears 5 gameplay. The game is 3 months out!

Best thing in this show was the from trailer and they just showed it after borderlands... No hype nothing. This was a bad show tbh

Given all the hype, this was a massive let down. The Infinite trailer from last year was superior and gave a better sense of scale and direction.

All the hype about Scarlett and Microsoft told us what we already knew...Zen 2 CPU and a Navi based GPU. Nothing else.

Very little gameplay in the trailers.

It was a good show. I have no idea who came up with that Gears reveal though. I understand they laid out when they'll show the stuff I actually wanna see, but that was a very weird and underwhelming reveal of a new multiplayer mode.

Ori

these three were the best things about the whole conference. From game looks intriguing but that was a pretty bad trailer

That was quite underwhelming. I feel like after Cyberpunk the show got much worse. Elden Ring trailer was extremely disappointing.

Only remarkable games from this conference were Cyberpunk 2077, Flight Sim, new DBZ game and new Halo.
