The Microsoft press conference gave us 42 new games to talk about

Nick, Pat, and Griffin recap the hot Xbox scoops

Chattin’ lads.
Patrick Gill (he/him) has been making serious and unserious videos for Polygon since 2016. He also co-hosts & produces Polygon’s weekly livestreams on Twitch.

Microsoft kicked off their E3 press conference with the reveal of the Xbox One X, and our first look at 42 games that will be coming to the new console.

In our video recap, we discussed the gameplay trailer of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, a new slice of Sea of Thieves and the debut gameplay of Bioware’s sci-fi adventure Anthem. But we all know what the real story is here.

The banana.

I was sitting next to Griffin when he bit into that unpeeled banana. We suggested that he take it from the other side to spare his tender mouth-meat from the banana’s stem.

He didn’t listen.

When his teeth punctured the shockingly crisp carapace of the banana, it sounded like nothing I had ever heard. It was aural violence. I could almost imagine the destroyed banana flesh gushing through the ruptured yellow skin, propelled outwards by Griffin’s powerful jaws.

Oh, we also saw the trailer for Ori 2, which looks very nice.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
