What We Are Playing April 2011 – The Horrible Show 042011

The Horrible ShowWe’ve been playing a few games the past month, culminating in a great time at Net Heads. Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Gifford recap the whats and whys of their recent game library to relive Portal, WWE All-Stars, Crysis 2, Monday Night Combat, and others. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Enough of this editorializing and headline coverage, we’re here to talk about our games. Not until we get off topic with our Threesomes of the Week where the relationship of the Justins may be changed forever. It’s no secret this week, that our crew had a blast at Net Heads and Cole wants to know how our lives would have been different if Net Heads had been around in our hometowns while we grew up in this week’s On the Spot question. Afterwards, Justins and Cole leave Ethan behind in our monthly gaming discussion covering 4 playthroughs of Mass Effect 2, confusion over Crysis 2‘s appeal, and an uncomfortable amount of baseball conversation. At least it’s about a baseball video game though. Will Ethan return in time for the game industry shout-outs? Stay tuned or skip forward to find out on the exciting conclusion to this week’s The Horrible Show brought to you by stun guns.

    Sorry for the lower level of obnoxious on this week’s podcast, duty called and I answered.

  2. Spicer

    Oh, I was a fan of the podcast until you heap praise on the new Foo Fighters. It isn’t bad per se but it’s just more stadium rock from a band that’s been doing that since There Is Nothing Left to Lose.

    For the record I am more than ho-hum on Crysis 2. I thought it was very fresh and is curbing the void that CoD is creating. I am a fan of military FPS games, and can’t wait for Battlefield. I also will take any Gears 2 challenge since I did very well at the last all nighter. I just wish I had a beta code …

  4. Justin Gifford

    Sorry, JP, I’m not giving away my code,even though I keep forgetting to download the Beta.
