What We Are Playing May 2011 – The Horrible Show 052511

The Horrible ShowJosh Lee of Net Heads joins Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Justin to recap their game time of the past month. We check in on L.A. Noire, Brink, Terraria, and Outland while reliving the highlights of Horrible Game Night and games we forgot to finish. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Our games list this month has some serious range thanks mainly to those weird PC gamers. One of which is our guest, Josh Lee, who takes us on an Atari Adventure before our Threesomes of the Week take on the Man of Steel. JDevL’s On the Spot Question causes some division between our completionists and our completion-impaired gamers, but we all agree on the fact that a game counselor’s job wasn’t as glorious as Nintendo made it out to be. Our playlist of June previews a few upcoming reviews of L.A Noire and Brink. Terraria and Outland remind us that maybe 2D is the way to go, and Cole is still playing Assassin’s Creed II? We recap our Horrible Game Night and look for ideas from our listeners on how to improve the events for the future. We close the show by going back to Hell where Justin and Ethan feel much more at home.

  1. Justin Lacey

    Your math looks pretty accurate to me. Although, I’m still docking points due to there being too many references on the show. Batman will need to retaliate in June.

  2. Nathan Moses

    Fail on editing out “Matt’s” last name. Ha. Ethan, was that Katy that the Scrabble incident was about?
