Every day, Horrible Night is on the look out for the most interesting news items in the gaming industry to pass along to you with our unique take. 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. Each week we will be recapping the shiniest of the objects, while looking for your feedback so that you can help us define what type of gaming news is the most interesting.

17 headlines distracted us last week, in reverse chronological order here’s the best from that list.

Tell us what we missed and what we got right with the wrong opinion.
