Boy, does Microsoft love ’em some video games! What? No, 2013 never happened, what are you talking about?

This morning Microsoft took to the E3 2014 stage and worked up a sweat trying to make up for their PR blunders of last year, showing nothing but games for 90-minutes while attempting to recast the endless procession of Xbox One policy 180s as them letting fans shape the future of Xbox.

The “We listen to the fans!” stuff was a bit groanworthy, and they did little to answer the question of what sets the Xbox One apart now that most of its most distinctive features have been stripped, but some of the games did look pretty impressive. Hit the next pages for a recap of all the most important stuff that happened during Microsoft’s 2014 E3 Press Conference…

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

The Xbox One is getting a collection of all four numbered Halo games on November 14th (sorry, no Reach or ODST). Halo 2 will be getting the full remake treatment as part of this collection. The Master Chief Collection will also include Halo: Nightfall, the Ridley Scott-produced live action series that will serve as a prequel to Halo 5: Guardians. Speaking of which, buy Master Chief Collection and you can get in on the multiplayer beta for Guardians. This collection is going to cost, like 100 bucks, isn’t it?

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Microsoft’s briefing featured a lengthy chunk of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare footage. The game has jetpacks and mechs now! Wonder where they got that idea?

Looks…pretty Call of Duty-ish. Definitely one of the less impressive things given a major showcase at the Microsoft briefing (unless you’re really into floating glowy particles).
