Welcome, Shackers. It’s not just any old Tuesday night. It’s our last working Tuesday nights of 2022 here at Shacknews. We’re headlong into our Game of the Year Extra Life charity streams, tidying up some new inductees into the Shacknews Hall of Fame for 2022, and wrapping up our Shacknews Awards and coverage. There’s not much left to do, but we still have ourselves an Evening Reading to enjoy, so stay awhile and unwind with us, won’t you?
In case you missed it at Shacknews…
- Sam Bankman-Fried charged with multiple counts of fraud, conspiracy, & money laundering
- Twitter Blue relaunches with gold, gray & blue checkmarks
- Mortal Kombat lead Ed Boon would like to remaster the original trilogy
- Hogwarts Legacy delayed on Xbox One and PS4
- Population: One producer discusses Sandbox mode and user-generated content
- The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Next-Gen Update brings some long-overdue features
- One Piece Odyssey feels like Dragon Quest on the high seas
And now… More stuff from The Internet!!!
Stand up and speak out
The NFLPA sent a letter to Starbucks calling out the company’s union busting.— Starbucks Workers United (@SBWorkersUnited) December 13, 2022
Starbucks responded with a condescending letter accusing the NFLPA of not understanding the collective bargaining process.
This is @demauricesmith’s, Executive Director of the NFLPA, response. @NFLPA pic.twitter.com/LKGISr0obu
It takes good people to stand in the face of injustice and inequality. DeMaurice Smith didn’t have to go that hard for Starbucks employees and yet he did.
Too much TikTok

Feels like it’s everywhere sometimes.
The Axis Unseen gets an Epic MegaGrant
I’m happy to announce that The Axis Unseen is now an Epic MegaGrant recipient!— Nate Purkeypile - The Axis Unseen 🤘🏹🔥 (@NPurkeypile) December 13, 2022
A huge thank you to @EpicGames and @UnrealEngine for supporting solo indie devs like me.
Lots more to see soon, be sure to follow me for more updates!
Big congrats to Nate Purkeypile on scoring an Epic MegaGrant from Epic Games. The Axis Unseen is huge on our list of anticipated games and we can’t wait to see what Purkeypile accomplishes with this. Be sure to check out and wishlist the game!
An excellent Xmas tree
Perfect craftsmanship. That’s a tree I’d never want to throw away. It could also double as a weapon in case of unwanted Sephiroth infestations.
Guilty Gear Strive adjustments!
Look at all the stuff they did for Bridget! I’ve been playing the character a lot despite her weaknesses and I can’t wait to see how she performs with the buffs. Be sure to check out the full patch notes.
A curious quandry
i will not sleep until i find out what they were trying to say here https://t.co/nGq0CpapjK— hey man nice tweet (@jazz_inmypants) December 13, 2022
What… were they trying to accomplish? What was the goal?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer
Looks so good. There is so much to love here. See if you can spot the Insomniac Games Spider-Man in there!
And that’s your Evening Reading for this fine December 13, my last one of this year. We hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage, and if you have, maybe consider helping out this week as we continue our Game of the Year Charity livestreams. We’ll be keeping it going strong tomorrow as we aim to raise money for Extra Life and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Every little bit helps, so tune in and help us make the lives of kids a little bit better this holiday.
Thanks for reading, Shackers. See you in the new year with my next edition of the Evening Reading. Be good and stay cool.
