I kinda hope this game sucks.

The hype/PR/marketing machine behind this game is one of the biggest I've ever seen. The pre-order culture is one of the worst things about the game industry these days and they are pushing so ****ing hard for pre orders and day 1 buys on this game. All the while only having one area of the game playable on the beta and alpha release of the game. If this game ends up being a flop i feel like itll be a much bigger deal than A:CM and watch dogs.
and hopefully all of you who blindly threw your money at Activision think twice before buying a game before you know what it even is again.

Okay.

It's not happening by the way.

...Why bother posting this here? Is this some horrible attempt at trolling? Also, more appropriate to your point, we DO know what this game is going to be like. Most of us played both the alpha and beta builds, so we got to see the mechanics of the game and what changes they made between the two, so most of us are going into this significantly more educated than most other games that come out.

"did i ever tell you the definition of insanity?"

even if the game sucks (i'm betting it will), people will always be sucked in by the hype machine.

The fiction will see the real.

The Preorder hype has always been around.

Remember what you got with Chrono Trigger if you pre-ordered the game? A cloth map, a chronoclock, and some rather boss (for the time) stickers.

The only thing I hate about the modern pre-order environment is that they stopped giving us cool stuff. I'm hijacking this silly thread.

What's your best pre-order reward?

Ahh. When it is almost launch day, all the trolls come out to play. :) Have fun being pessimistic all the time.

I stopped taking this seriously when he referred to preorders as 'preorder culture'

Dear (insert every negative dude pessimistic bombdropper on the board). I actually played the game with some friends and had a ton of fun with the Beta. End.
