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...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Is This Unannounced Game The Halo Reboot?

Posted on Tuesday, February 15 @ 15:44:25 Eastern by Blake_Morse

The latest issue of OXM UK has a teaser in the back for next months issue claiming that you'll buy it because, "One of the best games ever made is reborn on Xbox 360", and that you'll, "Get the full story, only in OXM".

That last part is only a half-truth though. For starters, the reveal WILL NOT be in the forthcoming issue that goes on sale March 10, 2011, but rather the following month in their April issue as the games publisher has pushed back the announce date. And secondly, the minute that particular issue hits the newsstands whatever big, exclusive reveal they have will be all over the interwebs on sites just like ours.

John Hicks, the editor over at OXM is a little bummed, but it's hard to complain about getting an extra month of hype out of something like this: "It's a real nuisance, not least since we've been trying to cover this game for months, but these things happen... The publisher was very apologetic but apparently the game just won't be ready in time."

Awwww, what a nuisance this game is, drawing attention to your poor, wittle magazine. Does someone need a hug?

I think the real question here is: Just WTF is this a reboot of?

If the background of blue computer-like parts is any indication, it may be the long awaited official announcement of the Halo franchise reboot that's supposedly in the works by Saber Interactive. I mean, Cortana's blue and a computer, so it's not too much of a stretch, is it?

The only other thing I can think of involving blue computer thingys would be Mega Man and that's never really in need of a true re-boot; plus Mega Man: Legends 3 for the 3DS has already been announced.

No matter what game it turns out to be, I just hope it lives up to the hype machine these Brits are throwing behind it and not a new Raving Rabbids game.
