Shiniest Objects: Truth in Revolution

Two big rumors became facts last week with the confirmation of the setting of Assassin’s Creed III and the announcement of Jet Set Radio for download. The only rumored facts spreading on Horrible Night were more tales of shame, lies about stealth missions, and Brandon standing up for video game summer camps. Every day we… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Seaman Joke

So it turns out that the 3DS is doing just fine. Fine enough for an old friend to swim its way to the system and for demons to invade your brain. Didn’t follow that? You may be more interested in Syndicate reviews as they are making about as much sense. The Horrible Night writers were… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Too Good to be True

Ubisoft drops some knowledge with another inevitable release and financial reports, while EA is trying to screw up the launch of Mass Effect 3 and Sony finally gives PSN games some love with a new campaign. I don’t know which story I found more touching, all of our crushes, Brandon’s bonding with his son, or… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Who Wants to Make Awesome?

A truly memorable week for fans of the industry with Double Fine shaking things up on the business side with a record setting Kickstarter project.

Shiniest Objects: NeverFinal

THQ finally unleashed the bad news, and it was hard to watch. We wish them all of the best.

We wrapped up our month of Gaming Regrets before unveiling a new… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Stupid Dog

A week of follow ups to major stories from last year, plus Zynga may be showing its true face. We were overly regretful last week, but luckily Justin Gifford was there to shake some sense into us with his first angry letter of 2012. Every day we are on the look out for the most… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: We Were Heard

Last week was historical. The internet, including plenty of gaming websites, banded together in protest of SOPA and PIPA and by weeks end both bills were put on hold indefinitely. The war isn’t over, but that was a pretty impressive victory. Locally, we debuted our latest podcast show as well as two additional episodes to… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Get Off Your SOPA Box

Finally, the ESA and its members start to get taken to task for supporting SOPA thanks to multiple journalists banding together. SOPA isn’t going away anytime soon, so it’s nice to see it gaining traction in the headlines a bit more. Our short week saw a new weekly series focusing on cheap/free games, although it… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Bad Last Year Pun

News kept right on happening as our crew took the week off, but not before announcing our Games of the Year winners! Every day we are on the look out for the most interesting news items in the gaming industry. Some make it on the site as headlines, and the articles that just miss the… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: More Bits, Less Awards

Surprising amount of headlines for a non release week, even outside of whatever that “overblown trailer reveal show with some awards in it” was. We put together a handful of editorials focused on the featured games of our Co-op Clash tournament, plus a couple of reviews because someone has to finish all of these games…. Continue reading
