The Horrible Show 07-21-10 Mini: The 15 Minute Fun Factor

The Horrible ShowThe Horrible Show has been hit by a Wizardtrain. Justin, Cole, and Ethan select their current favorite timekilling games including Killing Floor, Modern Warfare 2, and Just Cause 2 while trying to avoid DirectTV salesman and @Gamer magazine. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Sometimes you just get tired of trying to find a new game to play and you just want to have some mindless fun. After all, that’s why we got into games in the first place, because they are a fun escape. We kick off the show by choosing our Threesomes of the Week, and answering this week’s On the Spot question: What is your greatest kill? Then, it’s time to pick a game centered around fun and explosions that you can keep coming back to even if it’s just for 15 minutes at a time. We review the latest additions to the website and take it home with zombie delays, saying goodbye to the end of an era for The Prophecy, and venting about gaming magazines.
