Greetings, travelers! It may be President's Day, but we're not skipping out on Evening Reading here at Shacknews. Even though the staff took the day off to observe our country's greatest leaders, including Duke Nukem, we're still closing out our weekdays as usual. Let's dive right in.
In case you missed it at Shacknews:
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury review: Furious fun
- Unprecedented chip famine threatens business outside tech firms
- Shacknews Twitch Highlights: Shovel Knight, Warzone, and Blue Fire
- Shack Chat: Who is your ideal video game Valentine?
And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!
What the hell is happening in Texas?

This is my home in Houston, TX. This is my dog’s first time seeing snow, and this is my first time losing power due to a winter storm.— Andrea Leinfelder (@a_leinfelder) February 15, 2021

I don't know if I've ever told you guys this, but Cyber Shadow is freakin' hard.
Cars going in circles
The Daytona 500 was Sunday and, in case you missed, OOH, CARS GO CRASH!
Really, I only remembered this race happened because it ran so long that it wound up pre-empting the Fox Sunday night comedies. I love my Bob's Burgers.

IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMMIT!
Not sure when I'll get to do Evening Reading again, so I may as well take this chance to once again express my love for my boys, The Acclaimed!
And of course, NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day was last night. Find something better in wrestling today than CAAAAAAAAMERON GRIMES! HA HA HA!
I mean, isn't this pretty much everyone who got in on GameStop early? STONKS!
Tonight in video game music
Is there a more majestic instrument than the recorder?
Happy President's Day!
For centuries, Presidents have traveled across the country aboard trains to reach the people they serve. Watch to learn about the long history between US Presidents and Trains through the years. #PresidentsDay #Amtrak50 pic.twitter.com/LjJUwghQWQ— Amtrak (@Amtrak) February 15, 2021

I forgot to throw this in the story, but I may as well put it over here. So apparently, Cameron Grimes' gimmick is a semi-true story. He apparently DID invest in GameStop IRL. He didn't make "fuck you" money like the gimmick, but he apparently made five figures. So good for him.
Hats off for understanding the true meaning of this day in your intro :)
