Ep 26 – The Problem with Hype

Whether you like it or not, most of what you buy and do is based on your feeling toward it. Think of how much content you’ve seen recently about the movie Suicide Squad, or all of the marketing surrounding Deadpool. Tv advertisements, 360 pictures on Facebook, individual character bio’s all over the internet. How many videos have you seen surrounding No Man’s Sky?

This week on Watch. Chat. Play!, we’re talking about Hype. How it is used, how it effects gaming,  and what in our own lives we have experienced as it pertains to hype.

Have you made any purchases or watched any movies recently because there was so much marketing that it made you need to go see it? How did that work out? Did the quality meet the hype built around it?
