Another news week has come and gone, and this one was thick as heck. The digital Gamescom 2021 took place this week, and with it, Opening Night Live, an Xbox showcase, and plenty more. It wasn’t the only thing either. Join us as we talk about all the biggest news from the week on the latest Shacknews Dump.
