Shacknews Dump - July 16, 2021

Don't worry if you didn't reserve a Steam Deck today. The Shacknews Dump is always here and readily available for you.


Another ridiculously hectic week of gaming news comes to a close and with it comes the Shacknews Dump to put a bookend on this week’s conversations. You would think since E3 2021 and Shacknews E5 wrapped up last month, things would be slowing down, but this week was perhaps one of the most jam-packed routine news weeks this whole summer. Come join us as we talk Nickelodeon games, Steam Deck craze, and more.

On this July 16 episode of the Shacknews Dump, we’re going as hard to the paint as the week itself did. The Steam Deck was announced and opened reservations just a few days later. Chaos, of course, ensued and it’s likely to be tough to get one. Nickelodeon’s cup runneth over, though, having announced a new Smash-like game in the form of Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl. Moreover, how much would you pay for a fresh copy of Mario 64? Probably not a dollar over a million right?

Catch these topics and more as we go live with the Shacknews Dump on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch it just below.
