Mega Headlines: Mario is Turning into a Clueless Jerk

I don’t know why I take Nintendo so personally, but there’s a special kind of angst that grows every time I go home and see my Wii U after Nintendo makes any announcements. Distracting myself with two of the SNES’s best games will only get you so far after you step on your fans, and… Continue reading

Mega Headlines: Ignorant Derpy Truck Theft

While I do want Gearbox to be taken down a peg after their handling of the bad reviews of Aliens: Colonial Marines, if the misrepresentation goes through, we’re going to be seeing a lot less/different E3 demos. Grand Theft Auto V wanted a lot of attention this week, I could care less personally. I’m most… Continue reading

Mega Headlines: Faster, More Barfing, Single Player, and Worth the Investment

Changing up our news coverage a bit here on HN. As someone who is borderline addicted to following the video game industry, I’ll be bringing you a wrap-up of the chewiest headlines I can find a couple of times a week. It looks like 2K is going to salvage the XCOM shooter after all without… Continue reading

Buffkins and Sizzle Chest – Super Gaming Best Friends Live #208

Josh takes a really thankless job for the sake of his family, Justin falls for Aquaman and his trident, and Ethan builds towns on towns on towns. Plus shirtless Contra posters, scary offices, and dusty Wii U’s. UPDATE: This happened – http://buffkins.tumblr.com/ Super Gaming Best Friends: the podcast where Horrible Night writers and friends get caught up… Continue reading

Horrible Times #414: The Forced Farewell

I actually think that the more entertaining phenomena on April Fool’s Day are the companies that make honest announcements and don’t understand when the public doesn’t take them seriously. Granted, I’m not sure if there is a day of the year that anyone would have taken Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon seriously, but I admit… Continue reading

DuckTales Remastered is at PAX East

If you like DuckTales and really enjoyed the DuckTales game where you hop around in the guise of Scrooge McDuck, then I have a huge surprise for you (well I don’t, but the people that originally broke the story do). DuckTales Remastered has been teased as part of Capcom’s catalog at Pax EAST. Just watch the teaser… Continue reading

Should I Play Black Ops 2? – The Cursed Checkpoint #202

Two Justins, neither of whom are big Call of Duty fans/players, tried Blacks Ops 2. Gifford finished and is still playing it. Lacey quit. Can Justin convince Justin to give Blops 2 another shot? The Cursed Checkpoint is a topical video game podcast focused on discussions and interviews about a single video game, genre, news headline,… Continue reading

The Cave Review: Deeper Darkness

People seem to have the strangest fascination with non-human things having the ability to talk: cars, smartphones, Tom and Jerry. (Looking back, Tom and Jerry talking might have been one of the worst events in my childhood history and I didn’t even know it.) In the case of The Cave, seven unique archetypes approach a… Continue reading

Horrible Times #403: The Nice Spartans

Video games took a beating last week. Same old story exacerbated by an idiotic publisher, so it was nice to be reminded by Bungie that this is an industry full of good people. Bungie’s team went out of its way to cheer up a child who had just endured a liver transplant. The pictures are… Continue reading

Horrible Times #402: The Line and The Punk

Even though CES isn’t worth paying attention as a gamer much anymore, I do appreciate starting off the year with some nergasms. Nothing gets me quite as excited as Steam Box rumors, even though I still don’t believe anyone knows anything concrete, I just hope Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are paying attention so our game… Continue reading
