Shacknews Dump - October 23, 2020

What a week it has been! Politicians killing it on Twitch, VR flight sim, and more await you in this week's episode of the Shacknews Dump.


Dang, dude. You made it. We made it. It’s the end of the week, and you know what that means. A heaping helping of gaming news awaits on the Shacknews Dump as we take a look at star streamer politicians, speculate on new Kojima games, and put strap a headset on to go VR soaring in the clouds.

On this October 23 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we’ve got to mix politics and games for once. After all, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez absolutely slayed in her debut stream on Twitch where she played Among Us with popular streamers. We even got to see the specs on what kind of rig a congress gamer uses. Good for Ilhan Omar because it would probably serve her well is she wanted to get in on the VR update coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. A closed beta is rolling out soon, aimed at bringing virtual reality to the game.

Tune in as we talk about these stories and more today on the Shacknews Dump at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET, live on the Shacknews Twitch Channel. You can also catch it live below.
