Shacknews Dump - January 7, 2022

On the first Shacknews Dump of the year, we dive into the current craze that is Wordle, talk about PSVR2, and much more!


It’s a whole new year and that means a fresh slate of Shacknews Dumps discussing all of the hottest and most interesting news of the week. As we close out the first week of 2022, join us as we discuss Wordle mania, PSVR2, the latest from Activision Blizzard, and so much more.

On this January 7 edition of the Shacknews Dump, the first of 2022, we talk about Wordle. You probably know it from all of the blocky little tweets that have been clogging up your Twitter, but is it actually worthwhile? Meanwhile, Sony finally unveiled more details about the PSVR2 at CES 2022. The PS5 version of Sony’s new effort in VR looks to be quite the step forward. Also, Activision Blizzard leadership hasn’t missed its chance to be freshly terrible in 2022.

Join us as we discuss these and other hot news topics as the Shacknews Dump goes live at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also watch just below.
