News Filter: Rift Announces An Announcement

  • I normally wouldn't take the time to write about something like this, but I am constantly amused by the hype cycle of video games. This is a prime example. From my email today:
  • That's right, Trion is announcing that there will be an announcement of the new Mage soul for their upcoming expansion. The probability of three more announcements and announcements of said announcements is very high.

  • Thanks for the invite, Trion. But how about you just launch the expansion? That's all anyone cares about anyway.

  1. I got the same email and it does seem a little much to send out an announcement for a live stream, not to mention doing a live stream to announce a new soul. I'd rather have them release a video an be done with it.

  2. I LOL'd! I always love your habit of writing posts that point out the ridiculous :D
