Announcing the Announcement of a Post About Announcements

February 22, 2010

Capcom recently dropped this nugget that they’ll be announcing a huuuuuuge surprise sometime in April, just like when they said they’d announce a game everyone wanted and it turned out as the sequel to heat collecting, insect squishing, mech infested ‘We’re on a freezing planet but the female character’s cleavage is perfectly on show’ shat-o-shooter Lost Planet. Excuse me if I don’t get my hopes up.

Cold? Pah, students won't let a little nature ruin their commitment to fashion.

Announcing upcoming announcements is becoming a growing trend and it’s always infuriating, not least because the wait is annoying, but mainly because everyone who puts their theories forward has far better ideas than what the company actually comes out with.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 cry some, new Viewtiful Joe 3 cry others, a reboot of Dino Crisis say the most delusional. And you know what? Whatever they announce won’t be half as good as the best suggestions, probably because the best ideas would sell all of fifteen copies .

Announcing your announcement drums up attention for your announcement of course but what about just walking out into the Internet one day and showing off Okami 2 to an unsuspecting Internet? Nintendo did it a few weeks ago with The Last Story and Xenoblade and the dogs of the Internet cocked their ears and listened with a smile on their faces, a mildly pleasant surprise puts you in better light than failing to announce Devil May Cry 5 guest starring Bayonetta to an audience who’ve managed to hype themselves up for it.

The only thing announcing your announcement achieves is disappointment.

However if it is Street Fighter 3: Third Strike HD Remix then all is forgiven.

Love you Capcom.
