Shiniest Objects: Let the Butts Go

Hopefully this was the last week for a while that the industry will be spending all of its industry discussing review scores. I did not expect that conversation to end with the Jurassic Park game though. At the Night, we relived our marathon highlights, announced our next event, offended everyone, and reviewed 2 more big 3’s.

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.
