Xbox 360 E3 2009

So there I was, checking my emails, in pops the usual Xbox 360 Newsletter, for once I decided to read it, “Tonight all will be revealed”

I got assailed with a “Are the Rumours True”, so I click thru and find Xbox.com will be broadcasting the Microsoft/Xbox 360 E3 Press conference LIVE! So F**k it tune in at 6:30pm BST.

Rock Band meh, Beatles on Stage ++

(I missed the Natal Stuff, but will check that out later via XboxLive Dashboard)

Tony Hawx and Forza 3, Tony Hawx new Controller, (its a Skateboard), Forza Motorosport 3 (full title), has a new set of amazing physics, as well as the ability to create Hi-Def films in game (Bungie stylee almost?).

Then comes the Whistle Whoosh sound, its Crackdown 2, about time they made a sequel, I don’t have 100% completion on Crackdown, but have finished the story, an epic game, looking forward to the sequel.

Then Splinter Cell (no), but does look good.

Then on stage comes Tom Statten, from Bungie….

As expected Halo ODST is shown, with working live demo, it looks EPIC, and not forgetting the return of the Halo1 Style Pistol!

Then, “we have been working on a super secet project”………

HALO REACH!!!

And then, we find out you get a Beta Multiplayer invite with Halo ODST!

EPIC.

At that point I had to go to work, running Fruity on a Monday, with S Club (3) and Sash, throughly enjoyed Sash! EPIC-NESS apologies to the Bar Staff however, I over strobed….

Anywho, so I get home, wack Burnout Paradise in (arrived yesterday), started downloading the update (their update system is different to other games, and twas nearly a Gig in size), so I thought I would just check the E3 panel on the dashboard, where I find Last.fm, Twitter, and Facebook are coming to Xbox360 (share achievements, pictures etc), as shown by the rather fine Felicia Day, of The Guild.

All that and SkyTV is coming to my Xbox.

Excuse me I need to go do some work now to pay for all these new things I has to buy…..

HAWX and GSoC

Well GSoC 2009 first stage is done, applications are now closed, next point on the timeline is the 20th of April, where we find out if we have been accepted.

 

In other News Work today and Sunday is cancelled since HarderTimez is no longer rocking in the Terrace as well as Stylus. On the up side (sorta) Sage (my bosses Boss) have got us in early on Saturday (well um today), 14 hour shift anyone? (Start 3pm finish 5pm)

 

I purchased Hawx the other day for my Xbox360, enjoyed the demo. However the story might be a little short, finished in 8 hours, straight, on normal. So will up the difficulty and go again.

Flying with assistance off, is rather different, especially when in Expert Control Mode. But I digress.

Playing over LIVE is rather good too! Not tried Co-Op Yet tho.

 

Finally its the final two days of prep for the Nation Student Radio Conference, to be held at University of Leeds, with LSRfm.com, and having been given a certain set of keys, life is a hell of a lot easier.

 

Anywho gonna get on Halo3 Over Live and do some Team Flag, thats this weeks DoubleEXP. Weekend!

 

Woot!
