Evening Reading - October 14, 2019

ER is here, Shacknews. Let's close out the day.


Hey Shacknews! I got your Evening Reading right here. Please take a look.

I can't wait for Death Stranding to launch! Hideo Kojima shared this splash screen for his studio today.

Wow, WWE 2K20 looks really bad. Check out roushimsx's Chatty thread about the game. Also this Streamable link features a cringe-worthy gameplay video of the career mode. Sad that this game looks worse than WWE 2K14.

      Me before I opened up this post:

      "Jesus fuck will the NHL please go back to allowing more than one company to make their games?!"

      Me after:

      "Oh, be a pro didn't change? Alright, guess I'll deal."

        Apparently they switched developers half way through production. My guess is the previous devs took all their assets with them on the way out and the new ones had to do it all over again with half the dev time remaining.
