    I think alot of people where waiting from a BRAND NEW Halo and not just some CG of something already announced…

    Well, I was kind of hoping they’d announce something more interesting than yet-more-Halo and a sequel to a game that nobody really gave a shit about in the first place.

    Tekken’s a big deal to the hardcore. Announcing the NXE date was good, definitely. And the Halo thing turned me on, no question.

    R-type, king of fighters, release date for NXE, Halo, 99 Nights 2. That’s pretty big stuff. Especially when Japan isn’t really MSs battleground at all.

    I was talking about 99 Nights actually, Pat – I’d completely forgotten about Tekken. :-D

    The XBLA stuff isn’t really very interesting, although I’m sure it’ll all do well.

    R-Type in HD isn’t interesting?! Madness I say. Madness!

    Ah, I’m past all that score attack stuff. I’m too old for that shit.

    Arkawhat? :-D

    Didn’t they also announce Space Invaders Extreme for XBLA?

    The recent DS Arkanoid wasn’t very good, though. Space Invaders Extreme is coming to XBLA which is very good news, though it won’t be as good as the DS one is with the paddle controller.

    Pat, did you get the press pack yet from Microsoft concerning Recon?

    Just got it there now and there is a couple of direct feed packshots of the game as well as a fact sheet.

    But I can’t read it, all mine’s mumble jumbo shit and weird code =S
