Evening Reading - January 8, 2021

It's Friday, Friday, and we're gonna get down with some Evening Reading. Here's what's going on around the world.


Oh, snap, looks like it's my turn to take a crack at this Evening Reading thing! Just in time to wrap up the first week of the new year. After the chaos of the last few days, it looked like things would start to settle down on Friday. Oh, how foolish we all were. Let's look back at the day that was with this Friday edition of Evening Reading.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
