Shiniest Objects: That’s Chump’s Intro Music!

Lots of business adjustments as the new quarter gets rolling and Bungie says goodbye to Halo while Fez finally gets a release date. We were perhaps too hyped for Wrestlemania while cooler heads wrapped up our monthly focus on Gamecations.

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.
