Tomb Raider
The Tomb Raider story is getting a reboot, the newest edition looks pretty brutal and is said to feature open world environments. The teaser was played on-stage and looked like a cross between a movie and user-controlled

Mass Effect 3
Just a taste during the MS keynote, EA have their own later on. The experience will be ‘augmented’ with Kinect, seems like everything is supporting it now.

Xbox Update
Expect some of this to be US-only, we’re still waiting for voice controls in Australia. YouTube and Bing are coming to Xbox. Live TV is coming to the Xbox, not only in the US, but around the world. Foxtel on Xbox mentioned, we already have that, likely just voice controlled. Coming this fall (US).

Gear of War 3
Everyone’s favourite gaming rockstar Cliffy B was joined by Ice T to demo an unseen part of GOW3. Would you expect anything less than hardcore brutal action ? I think not. Can’t wait for GOW3.

Halo Remastered.
10 years ago since the first Halo. Coming November 15th, 2012. No Halo 4, what a disappointment, I guess the leak was wrong. Just updated maps etc.

Forza 4
Looking forward to seeing how the Kinect integrates. Nope, just shown the trailer we’d already seen.. disappointing.

Kinect Sports 2
Kinect Sports is the top selling franchise on Kinect. Standard kind of improvements you’d expect out of wa
ve 2. It does integrate voice, this has to mean Australian accent will be supported.

Dance Central 2
All songs from the first can be imported. More than 100 songs, the most of any dance Kinect game. Dual dancers now supported. They actually make it look pretty fun, then again, they have rhythm.

Halo 4
You tease Microsoft ! Coming in Holiday 2012 – Halo 4 ! Clearly a lot of development to go, but as a Halo fan.. exciting stuff.
