The Horrible ShowIf the internet holds it together we’ll take our monthly look back at the game industry’s news headlines. Justin, Cole, Justin, and Christina determine if anything can hold its own against Nintendo console rumors and the PSN outage. Also, potatoes.

Ethan is apparently allergic to headlines, but that doesn’t stop us from reliving the highlights(?) of April. That is if Cole ever stops talking about Ally McBeal long enough to let us get to video games. Hang with the Threesomes though and you’ll get a terrifying eel story as well. The On the Spot question gets tactical and pits our good friends Batman and Ezio against one another. Of course our headlines can’t avoid the Nintendo console rumors or the fact that to this date, PSN is still down. There’s plenty of other news to talk about though with free Alice, scary RE6 rumors, and more non-gaming content on your Xbox 360, among others. We tease our next Horrible All Nighter so be on the lookout for a date and game selection for our next online gaming night. The Cursed say goodbye to Christina for now as she heads back to California, but not before she can profess her love for the lemons of Portal 2.
