Shacknews Dump - November 5, 2021

On this week's Shacknews Dump, we chat about EA delays, Elden Rings, Devolver's IPO, and much more!


It’s another wild week of news coming to an end here at Shacknews and with it, as always, comes the Shacknews Dump. This week had everything from Activision Blizzard being its normal unacceptable self to Elden Ring giving us the sweet goods. We’re going to go over all the juicy news, so strap in and batten down for another discussion of the week’s hottest topics.

On this November 5 edition of the Shacknews Dump, Jen Oneal was president of Blizzard for a hot second alongside Mike Ybarra, but is ducking out as Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 get delayed again. Meanwhile, FromSoftware and Bandai Namco had the absolute sweetest gameplay from Elden Ring to share with us. Does it hold up to our expectations? Also, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is officially the lofty king of all Mario Kart games, finally exceeding the most sales of the series.

Check out these topics and more as we go live with the Shacknews Dump on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch live just below.
