Spoilers. Spoilers. Oh so great.
Spanish or not, it's too late.
Game surprises wasted.
Avoid Youtube at all cost,
Otherwise the wait is lost.
Just a little poem there, to show how displeased I am at this news.
You heard me. Sonic Lost World has had its street date broken. Spanish retailers (or at least one) have broken the official release date for Sonic Lost World, and spoilers have already been posted onto YouTube.
It appears that a number of retailers have been doing this for certain games, as the same thing happened with GTAV not so long ago. Why they do it is completely beyond me, as that just creates situations like this where spoilers are revealed before the game is even released. And this isn't even a three-day early thing.
The release of Lost World isn't even for another two weeks in Europe. It's the week after the Pokémon X and Y worldwide release, and even that street date has been broken.
Yes, people do like to get games early, but at least that's usually a day before release and not a week or two. This actually seems to be a trend now, and I'm sure retailers do it on purpose. Especially for the big games.
It doesn't matter what retailer, and doesn't matter which country, as long as the game is released before street date in one country, those spoilers are bound to be on Youtube before the day is out. It's not enough anymore just to glorify in getting a game before others any more, that person has to spoil it for the whole world.
I've watched one video, and that's as much as I'll probably be doing, as apart from the one cutscene, it hasn't spoiled anything for me, and was probably stuff that could have been guessed anyway.
So, word of warning for those who want to be spoiler free, avoid at all cost video sharing websites, especially Youtube, and any forums relating to Sonic or those that have the name of Sonic in their thread title. Spoiler tags are there to be used, but it's always possible that someone will forget.
In other news of gaming, the release of F1 2013 was yesterday, and reviewers seem to be pleased with it. I'll certainly look forward to playing it when I get it, and another thing I'll be looking forward to getting is Pokémon Y.
CVG actually called it a revolution of Pokémon, and anyone can clearly see the changes in this game compared to the others. Again, apart from the reviews (and official trailers), I haven't spoilt myself any more - except keeping an eye on the new Pokémon.
Releasing soon is a new Legend of Zelda for 3DS, but the Gamecube revival title of Wind Waker HD on WiiU has just released. Those that have kept up with this game know the changes made, such as the Hero mode and the swap from Tingle Tuner to Tingle Bottle, which integrates with the Miiverse.
Many a new game are releasing this month, so keep an eye out for the gaming news on the likes of CVG or Neoseeker, and I'll post more of the games I'm following soon.
