The Horrible Show 02-03-11: Does January 2011 Matter?

The Horrible ShowHow committed we are to reviewing the monthly video game industry headlines? We got iced in and patiently waited for the internet to be restored just for this podcast. Justin, Cole, Ethan, and Christina reconnect to bring you the headlines of Jan 2011. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Some thought it would never happen and some relationships were ruined in its creation, but we happy to bring you a cabin fever ridden edition of The Horrible Show. Cole has finally beaten Mass Effect 2, just in time for Ethan to start, so we may never actually be done talking about this game. Were you ever scared of telepathic gnomes? After this week’s On the Spot question you won’t be either. In ongoing quest to determine which headlines matter at all we set our sights on the new handheld gaming systems, actually compliment Activision, and come up with a much better way to screen the Heavy Rain movie. Finally, we say goodbye to Christina, who not only defied our advice, but her own psychical created advice warning her to stay away from the worst newest MMORPG not involving superheroes on the market.

  1. Stephen A

    I started watching the IT crowd months ago, and really enjoyed it. I do hate that there’s only six episodes in the season. Doesn’t make much sense to me. But it’s definitely worth the watch.

  2. JDevL

    It took me about 10 episodes to like it, but now I love every single episode. Just takes a bit to appreciate the characters outside of the main two IT guys.
