"Believe the hype"

Words that have been used for overhyped games many times.

I want the game, but not because a website assures me it's good.

Blues Cowboy1420d ago

Yeah, "believe the hype" is the new "halo killer." I.e. something that instantly dooms a game to disappoint.

That said... it's The Witcher 3. I think I do believe the hype?

MysticStrummer1420d ago

The game looks cool to me. That's where I get my hype. I stopped basing my purchases on reviews and previews several generations ago.

Bansai1420d ago (Edited 1420d ago )

I believe the hype!

I mean, it's The Witcher 3, my holy grail this year.

For instance, IGN used it on their friendly marketing for Titanfall.

VforVideogames1420d ago

Titanfall cant wait for the sequel.

I loved TF, and IMO it lived up to the hype. Was the game perfect? Nope but it was fresh, fast-paced, and super fun.

Palitera1419d ago (Edited 1419d ago )

^ I don't think it lived up to the exaggerated hype it received, but neither it was a disappointment. You see: people that get overhyped usually get disappointed, but in the end the fault is on them: they are just blindly eating marketing and friendly marketing.

It sold very well and was truly amazing, IMO. I love MP games and it is one of the most fun, balanced and fluid I've played. (By balance I refer to classes, itens, perks, not "team balancing". This was atrocious. =P )

Yeah Titanfall was great....Im hoping for a sequel with more weapons, titans, and customization. Titanfall is one of the best new IPs this gen....sure it received enormous hype but even then if your a true gamer and followed the news/trailers about the game and didnt get caught up in proclaiming it was going to change gaming as we know it then it certainly lived up to being just what I thought= a great game.

Palitera1419d ago

Well, since MW2 I was waiting for what the great minds previously on Infinity Ward were doing. I had great expectations, but I don't fall for generic and megalomaniac hypes anymore.

Anyway, it is clear that the talent behind IW moved to Respawn or elsewhere after its implosion pos-MW2 (it is clear that IW, the company behind MW1 and MW2, turned into a ridiculous garbage studio), so we will probably still see ultra awesome stuff coming from Respawn.

In case of CD Projekt Red, I can believe the hype. The witcher 2 was amazing outside of the stiff movement . Now they built the witcher 3 with consoles in mind, so the gameplay should be way better....The Witcher 3 will be the first next-gen game that's a must have for any platform.

No, Sunset Overdrive released last year ;-)

ScorpiusX1420d ago

That was beautiful , I can wait to get my copy.

kstap331420d ago

I just started witcher 2 on 360, and, combat aside, seems very well made. Hopefully the combat matches the quality of the rest of the game for witcher 3.

Great game bro glad Ms put it on GWO, have fun with the game!

brotherlymoses1420d ago

Man, I can't wait for this game!

cruzngta1420d ago

I bet with all the improvements made by MS the XB1 is hitting 1080p native with this game. Cant wait to find out.

GearSkiN1420d ago

We will see if not I'll get it on my ps4, but prefer achievements tho

Saijahn1420d ago

I don't think it will hit 1080p natively on either console, I could be wrong, but it will still be a beautiful game.
