Shiniest Objects: Reviews Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right…

Our weekly recap is back on its feet. Follow along to our daily video game industry news highlights on the new Horrible Night Newswire page, we’ll recap the best of that list every Monday as usual. Not surprisingly this weeks headlines were dominated by many many reviews.  Here at HN, we went live and celebrated Thanksgiving a bit early while lamenting the growing list of games we have yet to play. These are good problems to have, at least, that’s what we keep telling ourselves.

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 on our Google+ Horrible Night Newswire Page. Every Monday we recap the shiniest of the objects, and our original articles from the previous week.
