Happy New Year! As you may have noticed, we had a quiet second half of the year here at Awesome Friday, but that’s not to say we weren’t busy. It’s the opposite, actually; between work, and kids, and writing an entire bloody book in November, I’ve barely had time to indulge in my twin pleasures of games and movies, let alone write about them. Looking back over the year, there are a number of titles that I wish I’d had the chance to watch and play, but I also discovered I engaged with enough entertainment to put together a list.
Microsoft have much to prove this year. The PS4 has a clear lead thanks to Sony’s emphasis on games, and now new Microsoft boss Phil Spencer has to try and reverse that trend. Tune in live with me now to find out if they succeed!
This week has seen the big names in gaming gather in Germany for the annual Gamescom conference. Though not as likely to contain the kind of news bombshells that are a basis of E3, it’s still a good opportunity for the mayor players to add detail to their upcoming rosters, and even throw in a few surprises. Also, once again Nintendo opted to not hold a conference but instead had their most recent games running in a booth to try and maintain the WiiU momentum.
Well then. A month before E3, Microsoft and 343 Industries have pulled the covers off the next installment in their key franchise. Due out Autumn 2015, it’s going to be a long road of promos and teasers for something that they desperately need to be a system seller.
