The Horrible Show 10-20-10: What We’re Playing October 2010

The Horrible ShowOnce a month we forget about being topical and just focus on what matters, the video games. Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Christina talk through their experiences so far in Assassin’s Creed II, Comic Jumper, Dead Rising 2, Halo: Reach, and few others. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

This is the start of a new monthly episode where the cast just sit back and relax to talk about what games they’ve been playing and why they have their attention. Before we can get to the games though, we gotta talk about Threesomes, where things get Q.I. – quite interesting – as we try not to get shot while uncovering a conspiracy against children. Our On the Spot question wants to know about nerdy gaming memorabilia that we’ve resisted purchasing, and Justin struggles to come up with something he didn’t go back for later. Then, it’s time for the games. So many games. We revisit Assassin’s Creed II, Fable 2, Dead Rising 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Comic Jumper, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and take one last trip to Halo: Reach. We wrap everything up with industry shout outs and debate whether not we are impressed or worried by Stallion83’s 500,000 gamerscore.
