Evening Reading - March 18, 2022

Do you like Elden Ring? Boy, do we have a Friday edition of Evening Reading for you!


Happy Friday, once again, to the good people at Shacknews! This is another friendly reminder to always remember to floss, because bad things happen when you don't! You wind up getting deep cleanings and unpleasant metal instruments invading your gums. It's not fun, you guys.

Anyway, let's wrap up another week with news, memes, and fun. This is the Friday edition of Evening Reading.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

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

Around the gaming horn

Noted in the PC deals post earlier, but if you're playing Inscryption, it should be noted that there's a free update available right now!

Who's ready to kill Chaos? (For the sake of transparency, we did not get early review code for this one, so I'll be killing Chaos along with the rest of you. Stay tuned!)

Here's the accolades trailer for The King of Fighters XV, which now has new DLC available!

And, of course, it's time to get back into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Enjoy the new tracks!

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

Real Tom & Jerry vibes here.

What's that? You want more footage of these things?

The solution appears to be to give them indigestion.

"SIR! We are having a conversation here!"

Hey, we're operating on Final Fantasy 7 rules, which means there should be no interrupting of the Meteor spell!

And lastly, once again...

How's it going, Max?

BONK on the head!

Shaq gets a break this week, so we can watch Chuck with... whatever this is.


Another week, another moment where I post the latest rap from The Acc--

I'm sorry, I'm being handed a note that this is... WHOSE HOUSE?


Tonight in video game music

We're going to keep the Elden Ring theme going here and post this metal cover from Lame Genie.

That's your Evening Reading to send you into this third weekend of March, the first of March Madness.

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?
