When it comes to gifts for loved ones there’s always the question of what to get. Do you get something that they want or something that they need, and is it something that they really need or something that you think they need. If the person you’re shopping for has an Xbox One, Playstation 4 or a PC then there’s a simple answer for you. Starting on February 9, 2016 in North America, and February 12 for the rest of the world, you can purchase your very own copy of Mighty No. 9.

I personally have covered this story here since it’s Kickstarter inception, and honestly now that a release date has been announced I’m a little bummed out. There’s so much fun to be had not knowing exactly what I’ll be getting with the game, so I do what I can with speculation and fantasy video game making. I write about games and movies that haven’t come out because it’s fun and I like putting my opinion out there, but once a game or movie has come out then where’s the fun. Unless there’s a sequel planned or downloadable content announced, the facts about that piece of media are gone. The next possible step would to be either capture video for Youtube and make a creative video, or capture movie screens and talk about mess ups or easter eggs.

Mighty No. 9 has had such a big push to the top of video game news, that I’m afraid of what may be released. There has been nothing but hype, but the higher the pedestal the longer the way down if it falls. This game could come out and get dumped on, then all of the hype will have been for nothing. The team behind the game would have their money, we would have a physical or digital game and no one would speak about it again, unless they’re talking about let downs.

I write all this to let you know, that no matter what a person write or tells you to hype something up there’s a big chance that it may be bad. It’s unfortunate that I’m these thoughts have been put on this post, but it came to my head so I decided to just let it flow out.
