Shacknews Dump - February 5, 2021

Amazon dumped Bezos, EA is undumping college football, and we're bringing all these stories and more to you in another fine Shacknews Dump!


Sweet happy Friday to all of you, faithful readers. It’s the end of another week and with comes another fine Shacknews Dump, filled to the brim with all of the week’s hottest news in gaming. From business to pleasure, and from sports to leisure, we’ve got a Dump for all cheeks.

On this February 5 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we’re talking football! After all, the Super Bowl is this weekend, and also EA is bringing back college football games! (albeit without player likenesses) But that’s not all that’s happening. Bezos is no longer the head honcho at Amazon. A moment of silence as we honor the dying term, “Bezos bucks”. Just kidding, we’re still calling them Bezos bucks. Jassy bucks sounds lame. Also, have you seen the demos in Steam’s Game Festival 2021?! We’ve been covering them left and right and there are some you absolutely have to try.
