Anyone who knows me will know that I am not a massive fan of Xbox, and their presentation at E3 did nothing to change that, even with their announcement of their new Xbox One X console which they dub “the most powerful console in the world”. Whilst I admire (and snark on) their enthusiasm and release of a diverse array of Xbox “exclusives” which suit a wide range of audiences, there is nothing in there makes me gasp and go “I must immediately sell everything I own to get me the new Xbox One X console”. So, whilst I have provided a list below of the games that excited me most at the Xbox One X conference, it’s good to bear in mind that these are ‘Launch “exclusives”‘ aka we just got to announce the game, or ‘Timed exclusives’ meaning that they will be quickly available on other consoles, if they not immediately.
Watching E3 every year has become somewhat of a tradition in our house since we first discovered it just a few years ago and I’m super excited to be able to live tweet my reactions and compile all these emotions into blogs this year. This years E3 is running from Saturday 10th June until Tuesday 13th June 2017, kicking off tonight with the EA conference. So, without further ado here are some of my highlights from the EA conference and what I’m most excited about.
Today I attended the launch event of Walking for Wellbeing at Goldsmiths and am super excited about joining in the workshops and walks over the next few weeks. Walking For Wellbeing was set up by my amazing friend and Department Student Co-ordinator buddy Helena, and supported by our History lecturer John Price and the Goldsmiths Annual Fund. The project aims to help Goldsmiths students improve their wellbeing whilst also learning about London and it’s History through a series of workshops and walks planned by the students involved.
