Here's everything that happened during Microsoft's 2014 E3 Conference
by Chris Carter

Microsoft had their E3 Conference today, and it was all about the games. Everything shown was game related, and they even got a few great reveals in there like a brand new Platinum Games exclusive that looks like it could be great. It didn't blow me away, but it's far from a disaster.

Here's everything that happened.

Hideki Kamiya unveils new Xbox One exclusive from Platinum Games, Scalebound
by Chris Carter

Platinum Games has shown off their new Xbox One exclusive, and it looks insane as usual. It's called Scalebound, and the idea is focused on huge boss fights with various creatures, ranging from dragons to the Hydra. It's looking very Monster Hunter-like thematically.

The footage shows a hero fighting and riding dragons, as well as morphing in hardened battle armor. Um, yeah I'm so in for this.

Inside is the next game from the creators of Limbo
by Brett Makedonski

It's been a while since we've heard anything from Playdead, the developers of indie darling Limbo. Now we know that it's working on a new title called Inside.

During the Microsoft press conference this morning, some footage was shown of Inside. It's another highly-stylized, artsy-looking, 2D sidescroller. Details are sparse at this point, but we know that it's coming in 2015. It's unclear right now what platforms it'll come to, but it appears as if it'll launch on Xbox One.

Microsoft reveals Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its biggest HD bundle ever photo
Microsoft reveals Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its biggest HD bundle ever
by Brett Makedonski

Microsoft has said as recently as a few months ago that we'll see more Halo in 2014. It turns out that the next installment in Xbox's flagship franchise isn't so much a progression of the series as it is a retelling of the canon with a makeover. This will come in the form of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, a tetralogy consisting of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.

The Master Chief Collection, as the name suggests, serves to tell the story of Master Chief before it's continued in 2015's Halo 5: Guardians. It will be available only on Xbox One on November 11, 2014, and will retail for $59.99. Included with the package is access to watch all the episodes of the Halo: Nightfall series as they release, and entry into the Halo 5 multiplayer beta which will take place in December 2014.

Microsoft reveals Conker in Project Spark

Microsoft showed off a bit more of Project Spark today, noting the new "Galaxies" theme that will help you make all your sci-fi game-making dreams come true. They also revealed a more notable bit of content -- Conker will be in the game. Yes, that Conker. Microsoft ends with Conker trolling in-character: "Almost 10 years without a new game. Guess we'll have to make our own." Um, yeah.
