The perils of the Hype Train…
By shandog137
Posted on 03/09/15
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...

I just played Mario Kart 8 for the first time at a pub/bar/lounge downtown, so now I'm going to spend Saturday night jacking internet and yelling at GRaries about shells and sea shores.

If you're not there, then you're not my friend, and you can't dance.

Exact time TBD/flexible, but expect general evening/night time PDT (GMT -0700).

You don't have to have the console and game to participate. I just want people there. I mean, yes, the actual goal is to have GR people finally actualize a play date for a Nintendo game, but I'll settle.

I'm working on pinning down an exact time. Are there suggestions for what time would work the best? I have 88% a mind to stay up all night. It's a party weekend for sure.

So I'm counting MattAY in, although you're seven (eight? -- do you do dst?) hours ahead, so that might be hard to coordinate.

mc might be in as well.

GL, are you counting yourself in?

I suppose I should try to test this out tomorrow or something to see if my plans will actually work. I don't know how stable anything will be. >_>

I don't think I can make it. My weekend is pretty full.

On the day you're planning to play it (which is Sunday for me) I'll be going to my girlfriend's house for her brother's birthday lunch, then after that I'll be back at home doing more work (freelance stuff) that needs to be sorted.

Yeah, sort out times amongst yourselves, and I'll just stay up as late as I can haha! Might play Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii as a loose tie in with your MK8 party!

Well, there will be at least one other person on my side, although we'll only have the one console.

And apologies -- by "mc", I meant masterchris. But I think he is also just an observer.

OKAY, so maybe this will end up being 1-on-1 MK8 with GR heckling in the background. I'm okay with that. Razz

But seriously, used, why don't you have this already? It took me ONE DAY. (I also got it for a satisfying deal, with a smirk.)

Hype it up, GR.

MattAY: Good q. I'm not sure what the hell I'll be doing... It might be too complicated to actually stream for reals with the setup I have, but I'll figure it out. I might experiment with some capture things and something something.

In any case, I'll have Skype at the ready. :p
