Brink fell onto store shelves while the biggest franchise around started teasing everyone all over again. We had an unexpectedly retro week on HN full of knights, robots, and aliens.
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.
