Evening Reading - January 28, 2020

Holy cow, what an eventful night! Let's get right into your Evening Reading.


Hey Shacknews, it's time for Evening Reading. Let's officially close out our day of posting. Please take a look.

Smash Ultimate 7.0.0 update drops with nerfs, buffs, and shield changes

Sakurai posted an unlisted short video from Nintendo's Japanese YouTube channel. Check out our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update version 7.0.0 patch notes article to get up to date on all of the changes, but let's take a look at the Smash community's takes.

Zelda buff is real.

What does MkLeo think about the patch?

Dark Wizzy thinks the Joke nerf is bigger than MkLeo believes.

D1 with a hot take. Byleth is pretty good.

Oh, that Ryu buff tho.

Piranha Plant mains will care about this.

Holographic Geoff is bummed about being left out of Smash Ultimate again. He is in Death Stranding, so he has that going for him.

Shaq News - Shaquille O'Neal remembers his friend Kobe Bryant

LeBron also posted some words about his friend and mentor Kobe Bryant. I know this player, and Bron is about to win several championships in a row.

Dota 2 True Sight: The International 2019 Finals

Check out this Dota 2 TI documentary video from Valve.

Pocket Possum

That is certainly an Internet video.
