    Default Must. . .Resist. . .The Hype!: Microsoft Spring Showcase

    So yesterday in San Fransicho, Microsoft open the gates to their pre-GDC Spring Showcase to the gaming media ONLY.
    Not only is Joe Average Gamer not invited, but everything is under a tight embargo until Monday!!
    I know watch you're thinking, "that's a b%&ch move Microsoft -___-" and you're right, it is.
    Despite all this, I was okay. . .that was of course until all the hype and buzz started erupting from and about Microsoft's latest Xbox 360 offerings! There's speculation of 4 games from major Xbox exclusive franchises being announced, one of them being labelled a "Killer Sequel"
    If that wasn't enough, some journo is reporting "goosebump" inducing announcements and genuinely impressive Kinect games that actually deliver.
    Having been burnt so many times because of other recent and very lame Microsoft shows, i didn't want to get my hopes up only to be disappointed again. But I can't help but get a lil hyped about what we will see come Monday.
    As it h however, I'm feeling extremely trolled by Microsoft, their embargo and jerk journo's getting us all excited with their promises of goosebumps!!

    "Generally impressive Kinect games that actually deliver"... that alone makes me wonder.

    We need some good exclusives that don't involve Kinect.

    Is this their killer sequel?

    I hope not because that would just be sad, also I can see why people are leaving Lionhead, they might want to work on real games.

    Fable Heroes was major let down, I hope that isn't the future direction for the main series.

    Besides Halo 4 and MAYBE Forza Horizon, the rest of their showcase was a major dud for me. As usual, I'm very disappoint Microsoft.
