I want to start by saying that i'm incredibly excited for Dishonored.
But is anyone else getting this feeling of PR over-saturation? I mean, every week we're seeing a new video posted, hyping the game up. Personally after the first wave of videos i go from feelings of excitement to "Shut up and give me the game already", but all i get is another video telling me what I can expect from the game. Which leads me to the fear of hype. Games get hyped up all of the time, so this is nothing new. But they are usually released to one of three outcomes: Bombing and spiraling into nothing but a bargain bin, falling short of expectations or reaching the acclaim and greatness that we were all hoping for in the first place. Of course I don't expect these sales tactics to end any time soon. Studios can't risk people forgetting about their new IP and letting it slip under the radar, so they'll continue to pump trailers into our veins until we just say "Here, take my money." a month in advance. I guess I can't complain though, i stopped watching the new videos a while ago.
Basically this whole thing is me just hoping that the game turns out to be as awesome as it looks. I honestly want nothing but the best for Dishonored. Guess we'll see in three weeks.
