Apparently they are giving massive hype for Haze because... I don't know, too many people are hyping Halo 3 and not Haze? I don't know, just read:

Here is their first article that started all the commotion: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/PS3-Haze-Dev-Diary-Det...layer-Buzz-5615.html (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/PS3-Haze-Dev-Diary-Details-Kill-Halo-3-s-Multiplayer-Buzz-5615.html)

Here is why they're having this massive Haze coverage: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/CB-Games-Is-On-The-Roa...-Hype-Haze-5688.html (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/CB-Games-Is-On-The-Road-To-Hype-Haze-5688.html)

Here is the page with all their daily coverage: http://www.cinemablend.com/search.html?action=search&se...ype+-+day&type=Games (http://www.cinemablend.com/search.html?action=search&searchfor=haze+hype+-+day&type=Games)

What do you guys think about this? Personally, I think it's just a bad idea. Halo fanboys can get pretty defensive, and CB will probably come off as hyping it as a "Halo killer" which I think is the kiss of death for any game...

Looks really childish. And I don't think the "cause" is aided much by the authors writing "M$" either.

I was impressed by the coverage in these articles, and the lengths the writer went to explain his position on this Hype. They basically view Haze as worthy enough of hype that Halo 3 is receiving, solely based on what's been seen so far of the game, as well as what FR has released about the uniqueness of this game (Not to mention the undisputable pedigree that Free Radical FPS' bring to the table). I think it's a good thing, let more people start thinking about Haze, because this game is going to rock and I'd love to see FR get the attentiont hey richly deserve!
