Shiniest Objects: Every Action

We are still sorting through the bevy or previews that were streaming out of PAX East. Before that for better or worse EA dominated the headlines once again and Kickstarter resurrected another franchise.The Horrible Show took the week off, our You Fools! monthly editorial series debuted and we offer up our preview of April’s new releases.

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.
