Shiniest Objects: Lick this Neon Frog

Our friends at The Art of  Video Games exhibit had a big week with their opening at the Smithsonian. Elsewhere BioWare officially responded to the ME 3 ending controversy, Angry Birds went into space, and more teasing for games later in the year made us wish the summer away. At Horrible Night we were busy dreaming up definitions for a fake word and then reminding gamers that it is ok to have fun.

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.
