The Horrible Show 11-24-10: Games of Shame for Grown-Ass Men

The Horrible ShowThe guys spill their guts this week when Justin, Cole, and Ethan unveil their games of shame. Animal Crossing, Zombie Run, flower, Cubivore, and others come out from the shadows for judgment and to face new and questionable ratings system. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Apologies for the audio difficulties and volume levels on this one. Let’s just say we overcompensated.

Christina has the week off so the guys try and man up to face their most embarassing games. Ethan and Cole continue their grand tradition of talking through bad movies in our Threesomes of the Week. If that didn’t drive enough listeners away, the On the Spot question wants to know – What types of gamers embarass you? – where things get a bit sweaty and uncomfortable for our Warcraft friends. Let’s get this straight, we love our games of shame and we will keep right on playing them, but let’s face it there has to be a way to make them a little less shameful. Of course, there may be no hope for Ethan who once again thinks it’s ok to run around with zombies in real life. Got a question about why we are defending these games? Hit us up on our new Formspring account and see if you can save us. We are still looking out for you though and give you a few black Friday shopping tips before we escape to our food coma for the rest of the week.
