We are halfway through the month and it is looking like a pretty great time to be a gamer. But for now, join me for Weekend Discussion!
Happy Anniversary to Shacknews!
The site you are on right now turned 26 earlier this week and it has been an awesome ride. We hope you continue to join us on this journey and enjoy our reviews, previews, long reads, and more for another 26 years. As I'm a few months away from my first anniversary with the Shack, I must say, I've met some amazing people here and learned plenty about the games we love.
Check out some Twitch footage from our special Quake stream because we were founded as a Quake site way back in 1996 and it is still near and dear to our hearts.
Full stream highlight is available here.
In Case You Missed It
A24 is having a good first half of the year.
I love film so hearing how much our very own Donovan enjoyed the new movie "Everything Everywhere All at Once" during Thursdays episode of "Pop! Goes the Culture!" really made me excited to see the film. I love Michelle Yeoh and despite being in the film industry for 20+ years, this movie is her first film as the lead actress. I might have to make a masked theater trip to see this one. Check out more of Donovan's thoughts in this clip.
Retail Therapy was really chill. Minature painting is pretty cool!
Blake, Rodney, and special guests Ted & Chris the Founder of Modiphius had a really fun time talking about Tabletop gaming while also watching Greg paint minatures during the 3rd episode of Retail Therapy. Check out this clip below:

Much love to staff member Ozzie who took the trip to Extra Life United to support Children's Hospitals around the country and played MArio KArt and Fall Guys for the charity!
Our very own @Ozz_Mejia had a good run in #MarioKart at the @ExtraLife4Kids United event! #FallGuys is up next and there's still plenty of time if you want to help him reach his goal! 📣— Shacknews (@shacknews) April 14, 2022

Tax Day is upon us here in the States and I stumbled upon an EG and TurboTax collab the other day. I guess that is one ay to get prepared.
We learned so much from @cr1tdota this weekend that we've asked him to come back and share more of his expertise. Tune in for his second round of @TurboTax Pro Tips, starting now! https://t.co/PHCJCFcbTC— Evil Geniuses (@EvilGeniuses) April 12, 2022
You know I like to end on some positivity. This week, my friend SamWithoutAPlan did something amazing. Check out a clip of her beating Elden Ring on a StreamDeck!

I some how managed to completely forget that Vince Staples was dropping a new album! Premium vibes are here. Cheers to the weekend.
Action Bronson on a surfboard and the bars are smooth enough to slide down. Enjoy.
Siince Easter Sunday is less than 24 hours away. Here's a track hot off the presses. And Musiq Soulchild making an appearance is certainly a big plus here.
One more for the road. R.I.P. Virgil.
I hope that you all have a great night and an even better Sunday, and thank you for reading. If you like this content, consider dropping a subscription to Mercury. See you all next week!
