The Horrible Show 12-08-10: Does November 2010 Matter?

The Horrible ShowIt’s time to look back at the headlines of November and have Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Christina decide which news items actually matter. Kinect hacking, Arnold vs game ratings, and Activision playing nice are some of the stories we tackle. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

What’s been going on the gaming industry that’s worth talking about? That’s what we try and figure out at the beginning of each month. We gotta get through our Threesomes of the Week first as Cole has discovered the first great X-Files season before we suffer a TLC invasion. streetalchemist asks our On The Spot question: What’s your planned excuse this holiday season to skip out on work/family to play more games? Where we discover not only are we liars, but we are balloonists. Among a month full of releases, what headlines actually mattered in November? We rip apart the Uncharted movie rumors and give both EA and Activision props in the same episode. What a weird month. Luckily, we make it out alive even though Christina and Justin almost come to blows over King of Kong. Save Steve Wiebe!

    Haha! We were sure to thank them at the end of the show. We appreciate all of you, but I just wanted to make sure the rest of the cast wasn’t getting slipped money under the table.
