It's a shame Wildstar turned out to be such garbage.

All of these disappointments certainly brings out a bit of the Evil Within.

Not all of us have a Halo over our heads now do we?

Kingdomcome2471240d ago

Guys... quit your bickering. Can't we just strive for Unity?

Ubisoft used to be a great company, I guess this Titan has Fallen.

I'm sure there will be a Division of opinions with some of these (too soon?)

Skankinruby1240d ago

Y'all need to accept it, gaming has EVOLVED and the TITAN has FALLEN. He claims he'll RYSE again but that HALO over his head ain't going away. It was always his DESTINY to be defeated anyway

"Hype" is too subjective. I'm sorry but anyone can "hype" anything to full exaggeration. This can be said about any game EVER to release.

I feel most of those games lived up to what they stated they would offer.

MCC even with issues is still the collection of Halo games with MP in a new engine, not really sure how that can't as its exactly what was expected. Regardless of its launch issues, the game isn't that way today.

I don't base my game buying on hype, more so on the games I like to play, if I was to go by hype, I would have bought games like destiny or bloodborne. Everything a game does is what I expected to do, like take the order for example, i wasn't expecting something different when I per ordered it and I was happy with the end result, which didn't leave me disappointed.

It's nice not having to regret a purchase.
