Hey Shacknews! I got your Evening Reading right here. Please take a look.
Fortnite is still gone
How's everyone doing?— SEN Bugha (@bugha) October 14, 2019
That Fortnite blackhole stream is still going, but we have seen some leaks hinting at Fortnite Chapter 2 launching soon.
NFL Instant Replay stinks
It is not just the Browns getting hosed, the entire NFL viewing experience is getting worse with the current state of instant replay. I don't think they should get rid of it, but the current rules and implementation of replay need to be changed. We now go to LeBron James for some instant analysis:
My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.— LeBron James (@KingJames) October 15, 2019
Oh wait, that was just a terrible hot take from LeBron about the NBA's current Hong Kong troubles. Way to stay in the pocket of communist China, Bron. GGs.

I can't wait for Death Stranding to launch! Hideo Kojima shared this splash screen for his studio today.
WWE 2K20 looks... bad
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?!"
"Oh, be a pro didn't change? Alright, guess I'll deal."
Dude, those WWE 2K20 shots are fucking hilarious! I really want a BTS look at how this happened, lol.
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.
Yikes that Hogan model is bad bad bad
