Evening Reading - November 25, 2022

It's a holiday Friday, but we're still bringing you some Evening Reading!


Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone! Hope you're enjoying the holiday. I'm here to bring you the Friday Evening Reading, though in lieu of the usual news, memes, and entertainment, we're going to quickly dive right into the weekly features that I bring you every week here at ER... after a few quick stops! Here we go!

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

Looking back at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

It's Mariah Carey season, all.

Oh, and we celebrate the best dog!

We were told that Winston was an especially good boy!

Nothing but the Hotfix

Nobody knows more about speed than Sonic, so when we gotta go fast, we turn to Games Done Quick. Of course, the Sonic Frontiers scene is still in development and First Step hosts JHobz and Keizaron are going to attempt to learn the ropes.

GDQ's Hotfix shows air every week and you can catch them all at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.

Under the learning tree with Masahiro Sakurai

Masahiro Sakurai started a YouTube channel! Let's learn from his decades of experience together by looking at one of his latest videos. You saw our story about Sakurai and Kid Icarus earlier this week, but you might have missed that he also had a lot to say about Super Smash Bros. Melee. This is the main event for many fans, so be sure to check this out.

This week in Shaqnews

Take this long holiday weekend to check out the new Shaq series on HBO Max.


WWE Survivor Series is this Saturday and it's time for WAR GAMES! The feud between The Bloodline and the Brawling Brutes has been one of the hottest in wrestling and it's about to hit a fever pitch, especially with the sudden addition of Kevin Owens.

Tonight in video game music

We're jumping back to OC ReMix to check out this rare cover from Diddy Kong Racing.

That's your Evening Reading to send you into the end of November! Be sure to 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?
