Shiniest Objects: MMOh Just Kidding

The Game Developer’s Confernce (GDC) kept everyone on their toe’s last week with more reveals, trailers, and industry insight than we are used to out of that event. Our friends over at In Gaming We Trust are raising money to help a local flooded animal rescue facility, and here on Horrible Night we announced our first game night event coming this week.

Every day we are on the look out for the most interesting news items in the gaming industry. Some make it on the site as headlines, and the articles that just miss the cut end up in the Shiny Objects feed which can be viewed here (or on the sidebar of the site) and subscribed to here. Every Monday we recap the shiniest of the objects, and our original articles from the previous week.
