For the one other person out there still using their XB1 Kinect, Air Guitar Warrior is worth picking up. My six year old son loves shredding on his air guitar while sometimes riding a shark. It's pretty hilarious seeing his enthusiasm for this game.

 

I would describe it as the results of the Kinect and a horizontal shooter having a musically dysfunctional baby. It's silly, never serious, and it's pretty forgiving with my kid randomly throwing his arms all around. Beating a boss and getting to do a album cover pose is extremely gratifying for him and entertaining for everyone else in the room watching.

You can't stop the metal!

Great game. Sure the RTS stuff was a bit sucky, but overall Brutal Legend was fun and the soundtrack is mostly incredible for being over 100 tracks.

In 2050, it's gonna be "Nintendo won E3. Metroid 17 and Mario Super Paper Crash 7 look great!"

On my 16k Xbox & PS90x or whatever they want to call them.

Also, on a side note - BG&E2... I hate to sound like an old fuddy duddy, but was all of the language necessary?  I think the charm of the first game, besides awesome characters, was the ability for it to cover heavy topics while staying relatively kid friendly.  My kids enjoyed watching me play through it a few months ago.  BG&E2... there's no way, regardless of how gorgeous that trailer is.

 

Video games are truly becoming harder for parents to enjoy.  What I wouldn't give for a spoken language filter for games, just to bleep out cursing when the younglings are around.  I don't mind hearing it, but I don't exactly want my kids watching a very Sing-esque cartoon monkey shout Fuck repeatedly.  

I have young kids myself and I agree about wishing more games offered a language or even a blood filter option. When I stay up late I love playing mature games, but the time I have to play them is very little. This E3 really made me realize how much of a fuddy duddy I have also become. As a family we watched the entire Xbox show and I got just as excited as my kids when the less violent trailers played. The reinvigorated excitement over Minecraft. Super Lucky's Tale looks cute! Sea of Thieves, the wife actually says a game looks like it could be fun.

 

Crackdown 3, dammit Terry Crews watch your mouth! The family wants to blow stuff up.

I wonder how many of the Xbox Originals that you can already purchase digitally and play on Xbox 360 will become Xbox One BC titles?

 

Full list of what is/was a digital Xbox Original game.

When OG Xbox BC was announced I immediately ordered a disc copy of Ninja Gaiden Black, then I saw the xbox.com Xbox Originals listing and it made me wonder if those titles will make the jump since they already had approval for BC & digital distribution once.

 

Ninja Gaiden Black - Xbox Originals listing - $9.99
