Shiniest Objects: Don’t Strain Yourself
May begins and a few companies wake up to start building buzz towards E3 and their future game lineups. It should be a bit louder around here soon enough. We continue our promotion of Indie Game: The Movie by offering up tickets in a contest while Cole tries his damndest to find some honest and positive stories about how video games really effect people.
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 cut end up in the Shiny Objects feed on our Horrible Night Newswire Google+ Page. Every Monday we recap the shiniest of the objects, and our original articles from the previous week.
