Shiniest Objects: No Thanks

The industry was catching up on reviews last week as the busy month of June winds down. Thankfully, we also saw the end to the latest hacking campaigns, but I’m sure someone else will pick up where they left off. We got a little introspective on Horrible Night last, but also got some solid game time in as Trenched won over Ethan. We were also excited to announce our next Horrible Night Out at Net Heads for July 8th.

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.
