Microsoft E3 Predictions!

Meant to post this this morning, but now just realised I didn't, with very little time to go! Oops!

So here are our Microsoft E3 predictions!


Allan: Banjo Threeie.
Steven: Good call.
Allan: Yeah, to take on Yooka-Laylee, 2016 release.
Vanessa: Yeah, just like how the Mega Man Legacy Collection will go up against Mighty No. 9 (or so I think) for release window. I think there will be a huge focus on Oculus Rift, due to the partnership.
Allan: It will be able to be used on Xbox One, hence the controllers being released with it. Rather than the controllers just being a PC peripheral for them. Possibly bought OR, rather than just partnering?
Vanessa: There will be a quick gloss over of Windows 10, I don't think they'll spend too long on it, but it will be mentioned regarding Oculus, and since it's their next OS so they want to promote, but will focus more on consoles. I *do* however think they'll bring back more stuff regarding SmartGlass, since that pretty much disappeared I think? They'll do more about it, since it could connect in well with Oculus and with Windows 10.
Allan: If I'm right about Oculus being on Xbox One, then Insomniac's new Oculus game - Edge of Nowhere - will be on Xbox One, as well as that cool looking game Chronos, hopefully that will be brought to Xbox 'cause it looks amazing and Zelda-like.
Steven: There hasn't really been any *big* developers working on Oculus previously, has there? New ones to be announced? Oh well, what about a new Gears of War?
Vanessa: Yeah, they're already openly working on it. Gears of War 4 will get a trailer, early 2016 release.
Allan: Yeah, they'll start off with Gears of War HD then move onto GOW4. They'll spend a lot of time on Halo 5, too.
Vanessa: Yeah, Halo 5 will be the main thing they show. Lionhead to show a new Fable. FABLE FOUR.
Allan: Nah, won't be. They said they weren't doing that.
Vanessa: Let me hope, damn it.
Allan: No, Lionhead will show something like Fable, or maybe a strategy game? What about Xbox's indie side...
Vanessa: I think that they'll do a fair bit more "indie focus". Especially since that's been so successful for PS4 (via PSPlus).
Allan: Also think they'll show more of Rise of the Tomb Raider, and more Battleborn shown from Gearbox.
Vanessa: Yeah, hopefully.

What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below!

Asylum Reviews: Party Hard 2 [Xbox One].

After really enjoying the first Party Hard, I was desperate for more. And when PH2 was released in 2018 I was so excited, but it wasn’t...
