    Ok, that Dead Rising plus Street Fighter mashup DLC is pretty awesome fan service.
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:07:08 PM
    Capcom's new Dead Rising 3 DLC proves how wacko bat-crazy
    Capcom can be.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:07:10 PM
    Well that was fun. All new DLC coming to Dead Rising 3 today.
  • dan.ackerman 6/9/2014 5:07:30 PM
    Plus, cameo from "Tofu," a secret bonus character from Resident Evil 2, who is actually a walking block of tofu.

    Now Harmonix, maker of Dance Central come on stage. Company says games have played over 220 million songs.

    Now it's building "Dance Central: Spotlight," a game exclusive to the Xbox this fall.
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:08:30 PM
    Sunset Overdrive lands this fall.
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:08:31 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:08:31 PM
    It's very cartoonish and meant to have a light feel. This is what the Zombie genre has come to: brooding and emotional stuff like "The Walking Dead" and "The Last of Us" or stuff on the silly side, like "Sunset Overdrive." Rock music, explosions with the word "Boom" in the cloud, you get the drift.

    A great E3 tradition going back many, many years is Fable games over-promising...
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:09:46 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:10:08 PM
    Sorry, I have to say one more thing about that Capcom DLC. It proves that we need absolutely wacko risk-taking stuff in big console gaming. Maybe via DLC. Back to Fable, which
    feels a lot less exciting.

    The game is a third-person action game. Sword swinging, magic, enemies that disintegrate into green light. The game also allows multiple people to play together.

    And also, someone can play as the villain, orchestrating all the bad things that happen to the heroes from a bird's eye view.
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:12:52 PM
    Now "Fable Legends," a fantasy game with a middle-ages twist. One hero is called "Winter," which of course can freeze things.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:13:00 PM
    It's tough to ignore how much this audience seems to be ignoring Fable Legends
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:13:34 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:14:05 PM
    The energy in the room has clearly died down some. But that happens--not every game is a huge crowd pleaser. The multiplayer beta comes in the fall.
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:14:06 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/9/2014 5:14:20 PM
    How did this totally drab-looking game get such a big on-stage slot here?
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:14:21 PM
    Fable Legends was a great chance to catch up on Twitter
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:14:50 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:15:15 PM
    Where's my SNL game?
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:15:25 PM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:15:27 PM
    Project Spark is up next. Wonder what they'll talk about.
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:15:29 PM
    Now we have a look at Project Spark. This is Microsoft's world-building game, a-la-Minecraft.
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:16:06 PM
    Does every game need a gun, a sword or a car?
  • dan.ackerman 6/9/2014 5:16:21 PM
    It's always interesting to see the mix between "real" footage of gameplay and pre-rendered videos of games. At this point, the pre-rendered videos, which have little relationship to the actual game experience, feel unnecessary.
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:16:23 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:16:38 PM
    Microsoft is highlighting how players can create all sorts of places, such as as an ice kingdom, a "desert of death" or any other things. Games can come in all sorts of games. Microsoft says 1 million "creators" have already joined.
  • dan.ackerman 6/9/2014 5:16:44 PM
    It's like watching a movie trailer filled with scenes not in the movie, that look much, much better than the movie.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:17:24 PM
    Ha! They're bringing Conker to the Project Spark universe.
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:17:26 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/9/2014 5:17:42 PM
    I'll admit, I downloaded Project Spark, but still have no idea what it is or what it does.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:18:17 PM
    Agreed Dan. I've played it a bunch. But there's too much of an investment period for my taste.
  • Scott Stein 6/9/2014 5:19:06 PM
    This game is making my wristband glow blue. With sadness?
  • Josh Miller 6/9/2014 5:19:10 PM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/9/2014 5:19:23 PM
    Ori And the Blind Forest, cute platforming game. Comes this Fall.
  • Ian Sherr 6/9/2014 5:19:27 PM
    Now for something completely different: a fantasy platform game from Moon Studios. The storyline isn't very clear, but the visuals are, as expected, very detailed with light moving around in a forest as well as rain and all sorts of other things. The game is called "Ori and The Blind Forest," from Xbox Studios.
