The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Draqq's Journal: Brawl Bought
Posted on Monday, March 10 2008 @ 08:20:27 Eastern

Draqq's Journal, March 10th, 5:09 am, Berkeley, Current Residence.

Still awake. Can't sleep. Chaka-chaka-pata-pon. Recall today's trip.

EBGames. No, Gamespot. Want Brawl. No reservation. Re-evaluate own intelligence. Day after nationwide tournament. Two hundred entries over ugly wrestling trophy. One-on-one elimination tourney. Employees stayed up until 2 am. They're not happy today. Open door. Display for Brawl full of empty boxes with $49.99 stickers. Waste of paper, ink, and dreams.

Walk up to busy counter. Talk to Sarah. She's tired. Talk about Fab 5 Soccer. Imagines Carson Kressley as goalie. Sarah laughes herself onto the floor. Have apparently killed her. Other customers watching. Feel uncomfortable.

Ask for copy of Brawl. Last unreserved copy in the closet. Special note to self: "All luck now expended. Future looks bleak."

Trade in four games. Resident Evil: Wii Edition - have PS2 version. No More Heroes - love Suda51, hate his mini-games. Super Paper Mario - no patience for pure hearts. Dragon Quest Swords - too long of a subtitle for crappy game. Take out special coupons. Take out Edge Card. Comes to $88. Buy Brawl on the spot. Will use extra $38 towards PS3 later in year. Wait for Little Big Planet or until PS3 library gets good. Must anticipate hate mail.

Wander about store. Realize ten minutes through that nothing else is wanted. Must re-think priorities and repressed desires.

Hear two customers asking for Brawl. Grins while leaving store with no reservations on Condemned 2 or Crisis Core. Don't care. Too happy to care. Wonders if soul is inherently evil.

Still wondering.
