As promised, we have full coverage of last week's Gamestock event at Microsoft. Every game in their 2000 lineup is covered in this article, along with their 3 new hardware pieces - a new RTS controller, the second generation force feedback joystick, and a voice over net hardware/software package that should work great for those of you in clans and who compete over the net competitively. Microsoft's 2000 lineup of games is very strong across the board - everything from action RPG to flight simulator, to action, to RTS, to sports and space combat. MS is clearly a major player in the game publishing market now. To see what we mean, use the table of contents below to jump to whichever game/hardware interests you. You can also get a floating index from any page by clicking on the "launch table of contents" button in the top right.
