Shiniest Objects: Like New Again

That’s much better, our headline sharing feed is fixed so we thought we’d over share this week. Of course, Gamescon drove a lot of headlines with hands-on previews, trailers, and release date announcements. 2011 is going to finish with a flourish. We tried to keep up by getting our game on here as 4 reviews… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: That’s Not Healthy

I jinxed it. Due to a glitch with our Shiny Objects feed, we only have a handful of articles to share this week. We could talk Google+ but why waste a headline? The Horrible Show returned to action this week while we dug through our backlog for inspiration for this week’s editorials where we found… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Where the Problems Start

Actually this was one of the biggest news weeks in a while. Corporate shake-ups, major franchise delays and announcements, plus some awesome video game music is now within reach. Here in the Night we addressed the pitfalls of MMO’s, entertained the creator of one of our favorite games, and got addicted to shrooms. Every day… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: We Knew Better

Earnings calls were this week with THQ and Nintendo trying to right their respective ships. This led to some good news for gamers (price cuts) and bad news (failing franchises). With the podcast taking two weeks off we still cranked out a few original editorials and picked up Cole’s jaw from off the floor after… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Not the Information You are Looking For

A few more lessons in PR hit the web this week, as Capcom struggled to keep some announcements out of the headlines and had poor timing on one they intended to release. Star Wars: The Old Republic finally gets firm pricing info for the software and beta, but no hard release date was set. We… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Ok, Who was Talking to Rovio?

Light news week, but plenty of loud mouths and frustrating sales reports. Why make a Shadows of the Damned when Just Angry Dancing with Friends is what the kids want? That is assuming of course these are the same kids that grew up loving Matilda or Kirby’s Dream Land because if our editorials are right… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: For Pirates Who Like Their Games Early and Broken

The news was not quite as explosive as previous weeks, but hopefully the explosions from the holiday weekend distracted pirates from downloading Gears 3? Maybe not. We still managed to wrap up our Mario Madness series in preparation for a successful Horrible Night Out. We’ll have video evidence soon. Every day we are on the… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Protected Violence

Huge win for the industry this week as the Supreme Court ruled against California’s violent video game sales law. Hopefully, with all of this recent validation, the video game industry can actually do something with the spotlight (at least they didn’t notice Duke Nukem Forever). We focused our editorial efforts on unveiling 2 of the… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: No Thanks

The industry was catching up on reviews last week as the busy month of June winds down. Thankfully, we also saw the end to the latest hacking campaigns, but I’m sure someone else will pick up where they left off. We got a little introspective on Horrible Night last, but also got some solid game… Continue reading
