The Quiz: Hype Edition

Columns By Drew Wood on March 30, 2011

The Quiz: Hype Edition

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, back to the Drew Wood Quiz Power Hour, where every week I try my best to be like your high school biology teacher to throw a challenging but achievable quiz your way! So in the video game industry, there's one eventuality that's entirely impossible to avoid: The Hype Machine. It'll hunt down your favorite releases while they're still on the radar and throw down judgement of just how good "the people" think your game is going to be. This week in the Quiz, we're going to take a look at a few of those games on the horizon that you or someone like you may be frothing at the mouth to get their hands on. Sit back and enjoy: THE HYPE!
