Weekend Discussion - April 8, 2023

Peaches, peaches, peaches, peaches...


Welcome to the weekend! Wait, it's not April Fools Day again, is it?

It's not?

Cool! Let's jump into the Saturday edition of Weekend Discussion.

Pitch fest

I barely remember these movies, but it's still fun to see the Pitch Meeting take on the Maze Runner series.

Dial tone

Lost in the excitement of yesterday's Star Wars announcements, we also got to see a new trailer for the next Indiana Jones. Check it out, if you haven't already.

Ode to fruit

Here's Jack Black singing about fruit, a song that may or may not have been featured in a certain movie that came out this week.

Reliving the history of a classic

Legendary speedrunner Mitchflowerpower checks out a history of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Weekend grooves

Becky G, take us home!

That's it for this Weekend Discussion! We're excited to hear from you, too, so 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?
