I've said it a million times, but it's honestly kind of depressing that this game owes all of its hype to irony, especially when it doesn't even look that bad.

I feel like people who buy it because of the meme will end up disappointed that they spent full price on it. Maybe it'll be a good game, who knows, but I only spend money on games that actually interest me and that I will actually play instead of just "lol funy internet guy likes this game"

I don't think memes actually have a lot of buying power. A lot of buzz and hype, but it won't translate into sales. Not many people are going to drop $60 on a game because they like KNACK jokes if they aren't at least a little bit interested in the game itself.

I think Sony was banking on the same strategy with the Emoji Movie; they knew it sucked, but they were hoping the memes and the "this is so bad I have to see this" factor would carry it over.

That sure turned out well for them.

Well, Knack II is only $40, so nobody's going to be spending "full price" on it, anyway.

Sony's film and video game divisions are entirely different, and I don't think the Knack memes are mainstream enough that Sony as a whole would even be aware of it.

I wasn't implying any kind of overall Sony strategy with banking on memes, just that both of those would probably like to exploit the meme crowd for ironic purchases.

And while I'm sure no one in Sony Japan is aware of Knack memes, I have to believe that a good number of people on the American side know about it. It's pretty much the only means through which Knack is relevant these days.

Knack memes aren't really mainstream, but they make up a good amount of discussion about the game. Googling "Knack 2" brings up the suggestions "Knack 2 Dunkey" and "Knack 2 baby". Dunkey's pretty much the only reason Knack kept being talked about, but he's definitely not the reason they made a sequel. Knack was a fine game with good ideas that got mediocre reviews. Knack 2 is being made pretty much to bring Knack to its full potential, without the limitation of being a launch title for a brand new system.

If people are only going to talk about Knack thanks to jokes and memes, the least they could do is point out something actually amusing about the game rather than ad-hominem "lol game nobody cares about is the best thing ever" jokes that could apply to anything that isn't actually praised. Like, is nobody going to bring up how they don't bother giving Knack a less comically deep voice when he's in his Crash Bandicoot-looking form?

I remember when Knack was first announced, and I thought he was going to be a silent protagonist. Then he talked in one of the trailers and I was really taken aback by him sounding like a big black dude. It's a damn good voice, though.
