Bonus Staff Thoughts:
KJ: I look forward to Mafia III. It will be interesting to see how the development crew handles a 1960’s New Orléans setting.
J. Valdez: Just Cause 3. Definitely want that. Looks better in every way possible.
KJ: Day of the conference reveals are really cool too. “Oh yeah by the way, we added Rash to Killer Instinct, have fun with that”. Out of nowhere.
Vex: I enjoyed the new approach of Quantum Break, also my interest in Scalebound has skyrocketed. The DVR feature coming to Xbox One is a nice perk. KJ is certainly not missing anymore Gilmore Girls re-runs.
