It is Wednesday once more, my friends, which means it’s time for our one and only nightly wrap-up… Evening Reading! If you’re new to our Evening Reading features, they’re a way to quickly catch up on everything posted to Shacknews for the day, and check out some fun and interesting finds from around the net. With that being said, let’s jump right into the Evening Reading for Wednesday, October 26!

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now, other stuff from the internet!

Let that sink in...

The sink has been let in. 

Quality commentary

"I don't know either, I'm just your narrator." 

Staples logo reveal

I mean, sure, that's one way to announce your new logo.


Despite all my rage, I'm still just a storage. 


The nostalgia levels are off the charts with this one.

Matt Smith

House of the Dragon was amazing and if you haven't checked it out, I definitely recommend it. 

Mushroom Ditto

Shut up and take my money.

Duck drummer

Now that's what I call talent! 

Cyber Man or Padre

Choose wisely.


Tiny, but mighty.

Frog game

You had me at frogs.

John Carpenter

Epic Games' dead MOBA Paragon is being brought back by another studio

Epic Games has granted South Korean studio Netmarble permission to use all of its former Paragon assets including its name in the development of a new title, Paragon: The Overprime. The game is described as a "free team-based TPS Action MOBA" that'll operate as a live service game. For more on Paragon: The Overprime, check out the game's listing on the Epic Games Store

Movie clips

Wanted to share a few clips that I like starting with Orlando Jones as an AI that remembers everything from the 2002 adaptation of The Time Machine. The film is one of my all-time faves, I highly recommend it especially if you like a good sci-fi adventure.


This remains one of the most unintentionally hilarious (and bizarre) King adaptations I've seen next to the likes of Maximum Overdrive. The film and its bad CGI meatball monsters never fail to make me laugh.

... this goes to 11

The entire scene is pure 11 out of 10 comedy gold.

        Holy shit I even missed the Langoliers clip. Love that thing when it first aired. Was cool seeing a deranged Balkey.

        You know, people shit on that movie but when I watched it when I was about, I dunno, 12 or something, I fucking loved it.

      I enjoy the new version of Time Machine I'm sure more than is average as well. But can you place a particular reason why? I love the way it plays with the terrain and the effects used. I loved the vignettes as he stops at points in the future. I think I forget most of the rest of the movie though, just that he saves the girl who helps him and I think her daughter?

      Also, I choose padre. Keanu does a better job in that movie, he just does.

      Completely mesmerized by the Turbo Outrun commentary.

      The face on the guy with the duck makes me believe that he was just handed the duck and the drum with little to no explanation and that he did not actually believe what was going to happen until he was in the middle of it.
