Shiniest Objects: Just What are You Showing Me?

GDC made for some great reading material last week as well as Microsoft’s Spring Showcase. Oh ya, and there was some space game that came out and sold a few copies and angered some self-entitled idiots. We spent our time recovering from the Louisville Arcade Expo by throwing our own Horrible Night Out and discussing our gamecation ideas.

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