Microsoft Pre-Show Thoughts

Rumors are popping up regarding a new Halo game (different than the previously announced Halo: ODST) to be unveiled tomorrow morning at Microsoft’s press conference. I don’t nerd out over Halo games (though I enjoy them well enough), but this will definitely be another tent pole in 360’s lineup going forward. I’m actually more interested in the people behind this new game – it seems it’s being developed by Microsoft’s internal Halo team (put together after the Bungie split). Will they use the Halo 3 engine? Will this be an indication of Microsoft’s 1st party development story going forward?

Even more exciting, it seems like Alan Wake will finally be unveiled in full. We’ve seen glimpses over the years (a new trailer alongside the theatrical release of Max Payne last year and a tech demonstration for Intel in 2006), but there’ve been few details released regarding the type of gameplay to expect. I’m hoping that will change tomorrow.
