Shacknews Dump - September 17, 2021

It's another fine Friday full of solid gaming news topics and we're going to be discussing it all on another richly packed Shacknews Dump!


Welcome to the weekend, folks! We’re just about out the door to enjoy the rest of a fine Friday, but before we go, we’ve got news to discuss. Activision Blizzard continues to somehow be worse, Apple had a thing, and getting a new Godzilla pinball machine on this week’s edition of the Shacknews Dump!

On this September 17 edition of the Shacknews Dump, Activision Blizzard continues be worse than even our lowest expectations with allegations of employee intimidation and union busting now lodged in a formal complaint. Meanwhile, Apple showed off a bunch of new products, but was there actual excitement to any of it. Also, Splitgate pulled in a massive amount of money in investment. Does the game deserve it? (Yes.)

Tune in as we discuss these and other topics on the Shacknews Dump, going live at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also just watch below.
