The Horrible Show 11-17-10: What We’re Playing November 2010

The Horrible ShowThere have been a lot of new releases this month, time to settle in and discuss what Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Christina have been playing. We dig into Black Ops, Dance Central, AC Brotherhood, Rock Band 3 without trying to be that guy. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

The Cursed podcast crew proves how agile they are when a topic schedule change has them refocus at the last minute. But really, how hard can it be when it comes to talking about the games we’ve been playing the last month. Things almost derail immediately during the Threesomes of the Week when Ethan picks on Navy Seals and Hitler and Darth Vader do battle. In the spirit of our new editorial series Don’t Be That Guy, the On the Spot question asks “What guy are you?” Seems easy enough, except the answer may not be as straightforward for Christina. We finally get to the games of the month and talk through our experiences with Call of Duty: Black Ops, Supreme Commander 2, Mass Effect, Dance Central, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, BioShock 2 Minerva’s Den, Crackdown 2 Toy Box, Rock Band 3, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and Red Dead Redemption. Before we take off Ethan tries to sell his cat while Viacom tries to sell Harmonix.

    Dear Navy SEALs,

    My comment was a comparison between The P90x routine developed by Tony Horton and the Navy SEAL workout book I purchased, not the actual BUDS training that recruits have to go through to become Navy SEALs. I do not actually believe that one of the top special forces groups in the USA should alter their current regimine to include resistant band work and yoga. Please don’t beat me up.

    Your Friend (maybe???)
    Ethan

    Max isn’t going to be rejoining Conan, he went through a serious heart surgery and wants to stay near his family on the East Coast when he’s not touring or leading his big band
