Gamescom is just a few days away (and I still have to pack my stuff… I hate packing) and Microsoft Executives are visiting the studios in full force to catch a good look at the upcoming Xbox One exclusives currently in the works.

Microsoft Game Studios Manager Mike Ybarra had a close encounter with the upcoming Crackdown and with Sunset Overdrive, mentioning that “great progress” has been made on the former.

Another long day, but some great progress on Crackdown and a lot of Sunset Overdrive play sessions.

On the other hand Global Product Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg flied to the other side of the big pond, and is currently in UK to visit Lionhead and Rare. He played Fable Legends and posted his impressions.

Just played Fable Legends, super fun. The villian actually won too.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Unfortunately Greenberg declined to give news about Rare’s new projects, but it’s not too unlikely that we might hear something at Gamescom.

At least, he provided two glimpses on the studios at Lionhead and Rare, and I have to say the latter really looks like a lovely place.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
