It's kind of disturbing to think that a site that just got put up not all that long ago would be full of fanboys already. (Stops.. thinks... looks around.. backs away slowly).
We have to name this marketing technique. How about "Fanbase Looting".
Well, I finally posted on the Bad-Brain forum, making my views on their hype etc known.
Overhype & Bad-Brain. "Forget about the dog and the Rabbit"?
If anyone's signed on there and agrees with my points, I'd love some support, as I can see the Bad-Brain fanboys not taking too kindly to what I wrote...
Better with lots of Sam&Max2 hype, than none at all, no? You seem like you'd be happier if noone was talking about the game still. Hehe.
Well, I can't speak for JP and whatnot...but personally, if this all turns out to be a big publicity stunt, then yes, I'd rather there'd be no Sam & Max 2 hype. I want hype when we can actually stand a chance of getting the game, not vaporware.
Keeping up our good relationships between Bad Brain Entertainment and Aventura y C?(something that begun with some telephonic chatting and the interview we published some days ago), this humble website is proud today to announce as a world exclusive what Wolfgang Kierdorf himself has just sent to us, which is transcripted right next:
"Bad Brain Entertainment just announced, that negotiations with LucasArts about a yet unknown title have come to an end. Speculations are, that this title is the much anticipated Sam & Max 2 which was set on hold by Lucas Arts last year. Bad Brain Entertainment will announce details about the title and the negotiations later today. "
Although we at Aventura y C?know more details about these negotiations, our agreements with the german company and our young friendship with its CEO prevent us from revealing any more info until we are allowed to. We promise though that you will be the very first to know about this as soon as it's possible.
Until then, we want to make sure you know about the opening a few weeks ago of the on-line shop of Bad-Brain Entertainment, which currently features merchandising products on I-Jet,The orgastic Four and A Vampyre Story.
