What We Are Playing June 2011 – The Horrible Show 062911

The Horrible ShowSurprisingly, June turned out to be a hell of a month for gaming. Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Justin run through their standout games and answer questions about Trenched, Crysis 2, Borderlands, Shadows of the Damned and others. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

We’ve been complaining a lot lately about our backlog of summer video games, time to see if we’ve done anything about it. That is after we catch up on our Threesomes of the Week to see what else is distracting us from gaming like more books from Justin G. The On the Spot question wants us to not feel so lonely in our gaming endeavors and asks us to recall our favorite gaming co-op moment where we learn about the “genesis” of drunken Contra. The games of the month discussion finds out a bit more behind Ethan’s experience with his recently reviewed copy of Trenched, Justin G and Cole offer another take on Crysis 2, and Justin L is on a quest to find gaming bliss when Alice and Hunted disappoint him. Perhaps, Shadows of the Damned will have enough dick jokes to bring back the fun. We take a time out to prepare you for Mario Madness and the Horrible Night Out before figuring out who will offer the best hole digger simulator. Seriously, Terraria and Minecraft can keep on pushing each other, we’re fine with that.

    i was helping out whoever on the podcast that wanted to see the second episode of trueblood and not have to do the hbo go thing. guess i forgot to mention trueblood in that sentence.

    folding laundry + listening to podcast = self conversations

    DDP + dazed opponent = self high five!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (nirvana music)

    That sucks. Well there is always the “other ways”.

    @ Lacey- the only reason David Arquette is scary is because he has a badge and a big harley. i would diamond cut him in half.
    BAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!! ( may have to ask cole if this is the correct magic phrase)
