Evening Reading - October 22, 2021

The weekend has arrived, so let's send you into it with some Evening Reading.


Hello again, everyone! I have returned for yet another round of Evening Reading. Let's go ahead and wrap up this week in the styliest of styles.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And, because it's the weekend, go find yourself something to play!

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

The latest in the Rust accident

The latest on this story is that the shooting may have been recorded. Meanwhile, Joel Souza is out of the hospital. And, on top of everything, this might not be the first safety issue on this set.

You see that red button? Push the red button

I always trust a cat in a hardhat.


I've lived long enough to see plenty of pie-in-the-sky infrastructure projects come and go. If they can make this work, more power to them.

And this has been your regular Boring Company update.

Show me your strength

Size seems to matter in this case.

Sneaker culture

Bringing you the tier lists that really matter.


If you're gonna learn, you gotta learn from the very best.

Checking in on discoRyne

No big deal to our man, discoRyne. Just shiving dudes, like one does. Better than him metaphorically shiving us in Rocket League.

Spelunky 2 still going strong

There aren't a lot of games that know how to kick you straight in the gonads the way that Spelunky 2 still does.


While AEW's Adam Cole takes tonight off from AEW Rampage, let's watch him team up with the former Tyler Breeze to take on Halo... and say a few things about the current state of Twitch.

Tonight in video game music

The latest from Mariachi Entertainment System is up! And with the Halloween holiday coming up, they take on this classic track from Ghosts 'n Goblins.

That's your Evening Reading to send you off into another weekend. As always, we kindly ask that you to subscribe to Shacknews Mercury and support our humble site for as little as $1/month.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
