Evening Reading - October 29, 2021

Happy Halloween, Shacknews! Let's send you in with this holiday edition of Evening Reading.


Happy Halloween, Shacknews!


Let's dive into this Friday edition of Evening Reading!

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!!!

Halloween is here!

Imagine if somebody next year thinks to come dressed as the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate select screen. I think that might be one of those two-people costumes, like those horse outfits you always see.

Oh, and speaking of Smash!

The Reptilian agenda

Have I mentioned lately that you guys really should be watching Inside Job? Because Inside Job is great.

Lanky Mario sliding into your DMs

Make yourself comfortable, Mario... if that's possible.

Tom Nook's Monopoly

That card is going to ruin a lot of friendships.

Siri, play the Jaws theme

The sequel to Untitled Goose Game is getting scary, you guys.

Panda champs

Don't forget to dress your pets up for Halloween, too.

To Flavor Town and beyond!

We should send the real Guy Fieri to space, too, while we're at it.

I am the terror that flaps in the night!

If you haven't seen his videos, Phelous (Phelan Porteous) specializes in nostalgia, bad animation, and occasional horror. And, today, he's looking at a rare Darkwing Duck episode, one that's so rare that it's only ever aired once in 1992 and never again. It's not even available on Disney Plus!


For this week's look into professional wrestling, I ask you readers, WHO WORE IT BETTER? It's Halloween week, so there were holiday shenanigans happening across WWE and AEW, including DUELING GODS OF WAR!

So who who Kratos better? We start with NXT World Champion Tommaso Ciampa!

His opponent, representing the Dark Order, AEW's Stu Grayson!

So be to sure to cast your vote and tell me WHO WORE IT BETTER?

And, of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't link to The Elite as THE GHOSTBUSTERS!

And also...

Halloween is a fun time of year, isn't it?

Tonight in video game music

For the holiday, we look at the latest upload from the Super Guitar Bros., who offer their acoustic over of the first stage for the SNES classic, Super Castlevania 4.

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?
