Bloggers Wanted: Hype

Get your bodies ready

It’s that time of year again! When your news feed gets clogged with exciting announcements, disappointing news, and those head scratchers that leave you wondering what was the point of all that.

This year though, the community is gearing up to watch E3 together in preparation of all the fun (and probable Assassin’s Creed trailers). You guys are going to blog about E3 anyways, whether we ask you to or not. So for this month’s monthly musing, we’re going to open the scope up a little bit to encompass E3 and everyone’s favorite unlisted emotion: hype.

Hype, to me, is the highest degree of excitement one can achieve before spontaneous human combustion. For this month’s musing, what are you hyped for? Not just about what you want to hear from E3 before it arrives or what E3 just announced after it passes. Whatever excites you because you are huge fan of whatever it is, go right ahead and blog about it!

For example, remember Tatsunoko vs. Capcom? That game has no business existing but it does, even if it’s out of print. A crossover between two unexpected properties in a fighting game! That was an amazing sight to behold! Imagine the possibilities for a future project thanks to this precedent. Or what about hype for the newest Monster Hunter X? I’m ready after sinking 300 hours into Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. So you see, those are examples from the past inspiring future games and also what’s on the horizon already. Are you hyped yet?

To join in, just start a blog and title it Hype: [your blog title here], and tag it with the (newly returned) Bloggers Wanted tag. Talk about what excites you, whether it’s your dream game or something that already exists and is on the way. You like Last Guardian don’t you?

Ouch, actually, I’m sorry about that one, I take it back.
