GameInvasion Podcast – Episode 8 – The Hype Train Derails

You ever had a game that you were so excited about, you pre-ordered it as soon as it was announced, salivated until the very day it was released, plopped it in your console or hard drive as soon as you ripped the plastic off, only to realize that the thing you were so gleefully excited for is a colossal piece of shit?

Of course you have. You’re a gamer. You cursed the heavens, swearing never to preorder another game as long as you live. But we all know you will. The Call of the Duty is unmistakable. The Effect of Mass draws us back every time.

This week, join Carl Wilhoyte, Nick and Katie Hammer on GameInvasion as we discuss the Hype Train as it derails and explodes into a towering inferno of disappointment. We chat about games that we personally were eagerly excited for, and were monumentally disappointed by, leaving us the bitter, cynical husks you see before you. Why were we so let down? What the fuck happened?!



If you’d like to submit a topic for discussion, email us at videogames (at) or add your own snarky thoughts below. We’ll promise we’ll read every one’s mean comments and cry lots.

If you really like our podcast, be sure to share us on Twitter, Facebook, and Podomatic. That would mean so very much to us. *sniff*
