Jumping The Gun: Announcing The Unknown

Gi - After the spotlights roam the stage and a pressure cooked exec plods on amidst unbefitting dub step and indifferent applause. After the awkward scripted deliveries through gritted grins, gifting .gif meme memories to the legions of nerds watching online. After the lights go down, then it’s time. Time for the big announcements.

Seem familiar? For years at E3, GDC, GamesCom, Tokyo Games Show, the VGAs and beyond gamers have been subject to the theatrics of many big announcements. The public is told what they should be excited for, what to remember. Unfortunately, sometimes the announced artifacts don’t materialize However, we still do our part as the consumer public. We still remember. (Culture, The Last Guardian)

Beside The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite and GTA V, my most anticipated are The Last Guardian and Versus XIII. I hope to see them this year.
