Microsoft Press Conference Wrapup - Page 2

Other Games:

Madden 13

Joe Montana was trotted out to show the new Kinect-based playcalling feature, otherwise it's just going to be this year's Madden game, albeit with a new animation system.

Fable: The Journey

Casting spells via Kinect seems like it could be fun for a while, but everything we saw points to this being a fairly simple rail shooter, despite Peter Molyneux's previous claims.

Forza Horizon

It's Forza in a festival setting, which may or may not be more of an open-world racer. Looks like it'll be another strong entry in the series, and it even came with a bonus dubstep soundtrack.

Tomb Raider

Crystal Dynamics' origin story for Lara Croft is looking less like a torture porn game and more like Uncharted every time it pops up. Between using her bow to set fools on fire to over-the-top action setpieces, this one's looking pretty exciting.

Ascend: New Gods

Appears to be a character action game, but we were teased with little information regarding its turn-based asynchronous multiplayer.

Loco Cycle

This is Twisted Pixel's new game, but all we know about it is that they took video of a futuristic motorcycle. Hopefully we'll get more info this week.

Wreckateer

I'll just sum this up as Boom Blox meets Kinect. Seems like it could be fun.

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Obsidian's South Park game appears to be channeling classic Final Fantasy, all while attempting to put a character of your creation into a legit South Park episode. Trey Parker & Matt Stone were on-hand to make fun of the conference in general, a much-needed moment of levity.

Dance Central 3

More Dance Central isn't a bad thing, although having Usher come out on stage to demonstrate how much better he can dance than everyone else was kind of lame.
