Shacknews Dump - May 27, 2022

We've arrived at Friday and it's about to be a long holiday weekend, but before you go, why not join us in discussing the week's hottest news?


We’re coming up on another weekend here at Shacknews, and with it comes another edition of the Shacknews Dump. Why not ring in the holiday weekend by joining us for another discussion of the hottest gaming news of the week?

On this May 27 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we dive into the latest ongoing news out of Activision Blizzard. The company has been shady in dealing with possible union efforts, but it seems Xbox’s Phil Spencer will recognize Raven QA’s union once the acquisition closes. Will Microsoft stay true to Spencer’s words? We’ve also got the latest details on what’s going on with Elon Musk, his pursuit to buy Twitter, his alleged $250,000 creeper massage, and his overcomplicated Elden Ring build. That said, it seems Dark Souls multiplayer servers may finally come back soon?

Tune in as we talk about these stories and more of the week’s hottest news on the Shacknews Dump, going live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch below.

Here’s the rundown of topics coming up on today’s Shacknews Dump:
