Shacknews Dump - March 19, 2021

It was a wacky week of gaming news that was full of ups, downs, and dirtbag ActiBliz CEOs taking sweet bonuses, and we're covering the hottest topics on the Dump!


Welcome, friends, to Friday. We’re here following a lightning fast week of gaming news and conversations and that means it’s time for another Shacknews Dump to discuss the hottest topics going around.

On this March 19 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we gotta say: we might call ourselves the Dump, but we’re going to have to work pretty hard to be as crappy as laying off large swaths of employees and then taking a hefty multi-million-dollar bonus in pay. It’s not all bad, though. Square Enix had a direct presentation yesterday in which new titles for Life is Strange were shown and we got another look at the newly-named Forspoken, just to name a few.

Join us we talk about these and other hot news topics when the Shacknews Dump goes live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also catch the show live just below.

Here’s the rundown of topics on the slate for today’s Shacknews Dump:

The Shacknews Dump is also brought to you today by Galahad 3093, which is a multiplayer mech game set to launch its free extended beta later today! Stay tuned after the Dump for a special livestream with the Galahad 3093 devs as we join them in kicking off the beta with gameplay and Q&A!

The Dump is packed to the brim today, but we’ve got more to give. That said, strap in, brace yourself, and get ready for the hottest gaming news topics as we go live shortly!
