I've seen some Hype man!!!!!! Most of the time, it's way overdone, and rarely is it deserving. But when it is Deserving it can be a wonderful marriage of development/consumer relationship. However, as stated before most of these tales end in an embarrassing divorce by way of lame and shame. As we are human of course it's easy to be subjective, But something tells me that there is a general consensus here in the forums regarding what is considered over-hype, under-hype, and "ooh this porridge is just right". Now majority would rule that its the public themselves that create the hype but somehow I feel we aren't completely responsible. How ever we can't really blame are "in-game news" references either. So on the topic of good conversation what games do you think deserved the pre-hype that they got or didn't get. Some suggestive Examples: Rolando: Over-hyped????- to me yes.....but to most would tell you that it was up there, and after it's release you didn't hear much about it. Payback: Over-hyped- This little doozie struck hype gold when it made a very brief appearance and then was pulled just hours after release due to technical issues, leaving over half of the waiting iGaming community salivating. I also remember contributing to a very long thread expressing my lust for the game. but like so many after it's release there wasn't much to really talk about. it was what it was and is what it is. Need for Speed: Over-hyped????? LOL..... Ok yes games that aren't out yet are included, but if we're continuing with this whole little 3 Bears thing, then Need for Speed is neither too hot nor too cold....it's down right under cooked, but I really hope their making something special. however at this point of over-hypeness it's to late to turn back from dissapointment upon release. Aqua Moto Racer: Under-hyped: yes there was a few pieces done on this very-well rounded console quality game, but not enough to compliment it's absolute completeness. This game has a large, and progressive career mode. Not to mention online time trial leader board, multiple tracks in three different landscapes that are extremely beautiful. The frames aren't the fastest but the are smooth and with out hiccups, not to mention there are jumps and tricks. I couldn't believe that the one thing people whined about was that there where no waves. even though the water reflection is psp quality. come on people, no waves???? theres way too much worse to be complaining about. Zen Bound: MMMMMMM Now this Porridge is just right!!! The hype around Zen Bound never exceeded that of what it is worth. Pre-release and after it proves to be a complete game never boasting more than it offers. No app has been as successful while actually advertising that their app isn't for people looking for high octane. Instead the focal point was it's sheer calmness that of which did not take away for making a very pleasurable gaming experience. So there is some examples, please weigh in with your thoughts and opinions. The above opinions and suggestions don't reflect on the actual development, but such characteristics have an effect on the games and there received reaction and acceptance and or rejection based on general consensus before and after their releases.
