A few weeks later.

So around the start of February there was as a bunch of releases I was getting hyped* up about but now... a few weeks later... I couldn't care less. Game sites seem to have ignored their release even happened. No news except meta-reviews with the odd smattering of DLC rumours. I mean I know that games are considered nothing more than interactive entertainment mediums, akin to movies, but with more button presses (dependant on DVD extras). But I'm a little sad that for the first time, I have not given into hype, and I seem nonchalant about the whole thing.

Maybe I didn't want FFXIII-2 or Soul Calibur V?

Maybe, games are not worth the hype.

Maybe the whole system is wrong! rant... should have continuous promotion... ramble... accessibility to all games ever made... rant...

But that won't change, this is the machine we all made, hyped up media bombs, based on demographics and trends. Defining people by terms and desirability to play a game.

Love and dissolution,

Richie X
