It’s nearly the end of the week and another vibrant week of video game news has passed. We’re sure you’re ready to get to the weekend, but we’ve got a fantastic Shacknews Dump to share with you as we discuss the most interesting topics. New World, Twitch fixes and breaks, and more await on today’s show.
On this October 1 episode of the Shacknews Dump, New World is the new MMO on the block. Everyone wants to play it, according to Steam and Twitch, but who can actually get in? Meanwhile, speaking of Twitch, it went the extra mile to help out with Twitch hate raid bots, but then introduced paid stream boosting in a very odd turn. Also, it seems like Nintendo and Universal Studios Japan could be updating the Super Nintendo World theme park with some real-life Donkey Kong DLC.
