Evening Reading - April 22, 2022

Path of Exile, Halo Infinite, Loop Daddy, more GDQ Hotfix, the Shaq Shake, and help us say goodbye to the weekly Elden Ring spotlight. It's all part of the Friday edition of Evening Reading.


Hey, everyone! I took another week off last Friday, this time to go participate in Extra Life United and raise money for the children's hospitals of America. I am back again, so let's get back to the news, memes, and entertainment. 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

The latest Path of Exile expansion is on its way! We'll learn more about it in a few weeks and you can bet that Shacknews will endeavor to learn more about it, as well.

If you want a different kind of baseball experience, the latest Out of the Park Baseball is now available on PC!

We got a kick out of Rawmen when we first saw it at last year's E3. Now get ready for the beta! It's coming this summer!

Take a closer look at what's coming to Halo Infinite for Season 2.

It's been a minute since we've heard anything from Company of Heroes 3. Here's a new dev diary talking about the game's art style.

Lastly, Stellaris is getting a new expansion. Check out the release date for the upcoming Overlord.

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

The Loop Daddy process

Watch Marc Rebillet (our own lookitzpancakes on Chatty) take everyone through the making of his next album.



Watch your step

We all have phones. Really, if you're not carrying your phone around and using the flashlight function, you're kinda asking for it.

Elden Ring: Week 9

Alright, this feature has had a good run, but it's just about time to retire it. Let's go out on a high note.



Elevator is out of order.


We retire this feature the way we came in.

Take us home, Max!

Once again, feel free to upload your own Elden Ring clips in the comments or go ahead and peruse the Chatty. Elden Ring threads are happening on a daily basis.

Nothing but the Hotfix

For this week's Games Done Quick Hotfix spotlight, we check out the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Randomizer, because randomizers rule! Even nuttier is that everything is flipped around and inverted!

Remember to catch GDQ's Hotfix shows every week at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.

This week in Shaqnews

I feel like you probably shouldn't try this at home.


For the Steelers fans out there, let's spotlight Dr. Britt Baker DMD from this week's AEW Dynamite.

Tonight in video game music

For tonight, let's travel back to Final Fantasy IX for this collaborative mix of the Marsh of the Qu Tribe track.

That's your Evening Reading to send you into this fourth weekend of April. Keep the spirit of the classic Evening Reading alive by jumping into the comments about whatever you see here or whatever randomness you'd like to discuss. Join the conversation and dive into the Shacknews Chatty comment thread below. I'll see you all next week!

Senior Editor

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?
