    XBOX E3 2018 Expectations, Hopes, Etc

    Hey fellow XBOXers!

    With E3 just over two weeks away, and Microsoft claiming it will be their biggest yet, what are you most looking forward to, or hoping for?

    For me, it's VR support for the XBox One X. I'm hoping that they make all the newly released WMR headsets compatible with the XBX, and that they also have a number of games ready for release as well!

    Aside from that, I'd like to see some new gameplay from NMS and Anthem.

    And some new game announcements too, like a new (proper) Fable game, and Halo 6 details :-)

    What about you?

    I'm hoping for a few things this year:
    Anthem
    Borderlands 3
    Halo 6
    Forza horizon 4
    Xbox VR
    Some actual elite content
    Battlefield V
    Bethesda's Starfield
    Would like to see some NMS multiplayer but I already have a pretty good idea of how it will work

    There's probably some other stuff I'm looking forward to but cant think of right now.

    I'm also looking forward to more in on Starfield!

    Hopefully Starfield will be coop because if the leak was true then it will be amazing.

    Funnily enough I've already seen a launch notification for War Thunder on XB1 several times in the past weeks but it always got postponed. I don't know why but maybe they are waiting for E3 now to announce it.

    It can't come soon enough. I want to see if I still have the talent I had back in the 360 years.

    My secret? Machine guns, and nothing else. No bombs, no rockets.

    It wasn't just the WWII games. I only used short range weapons in all of the 360 flight games. Hell in H.A.W.X I used an A-10 with seven machine guns. Rarely lost.

    E3 was a disappointment to me.

    That's not to say Microsoft didn't have a great presentation, but here's what I didn't get:

    XBOX One X VR - nothing
    Halo 6 - in place of it we got a game engine demo :-(
    Fable - nothing
    NMS Co-op - no new news
    XBOX One mouse support - nothing
    Bethesda's Starfield - SP game not coming in 2018 :-(

    And I also get the feeling like most new games (Like Halo 6) are going next gen and won't be out until the next XBOX (Two?) in 2020 :-(
