Weekend Discussion - January 26, 2020

It's Sunday, my dudes. Check out your Weekend Discussion.


Hey Shacknews, it's time for Weekend Discussion. Let's officially kick off our Sunday of posting. Please take a look.

Sakurai attended EVO Japan 2020

"I saw EVO Japan 2020. We watch qualifying in broadcast. It was really interesting because of the fierce clashes ... The participants were very happy! The people who play play decide their character as if they were creating a playground ... I'm surprised at the variety," said Sakurai on Twitter.

Shuton won EVO Japan 2020, and asked Sakurai for a hug.

Shuton also dropped the first place Switch Pro Controller.

Fan favorite, Zackray, was not so happy with his fifth place medal..

Hunter S. Thompson is the hero of gonzo journalism

Thanks to AxeMan808 for bringing this to my attention with his Shacknews Chatty thread. And for being the best Fulback the Bizarro Wolverines ever had.

Byte is better than TikTok.
