Evening Reading - May 16, 2023

It's nighttime in America, and that means it's time to wind down with another edition of Evening Reading.


Welcome to the end of a fantastic Tuesday, Shackers. We hope you’ve enjoyed the first weekend with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Or maybe you dug into Diablo 4’s most recent beta? Anyways, we hope you had time to catch up on sleep. Nonetheless, we’re about to dive into the halfway point of the week, but we have to shut a good day of posting proper with another Evening Reading. Please enjoy.

In case you missed it at Shacknews

And now… More stuff from The Internet!

So much stuff you can do

Truly, every day is an experiment in Tears of the Kingdom. What’s your favorite discovery?

Journalism is valued in Hyrule

Lucky Clover Gazette sounds like a sweet gig. Also, I’d get to work with Penn and he’s pretty great.

If I’d known the second half of the game was never coming, I would have definitely scored the whole thing lower.

Meanwhile, in Elon Musk’s fantasy imaginatorium

Twitter’s a “stable place” he said. Kind of like pure lithium is a stable element or nitroglycerin is a stable explosive.

A moment of zen

From our friend and Shacker, Nathan Purkeypile. The Axis Unseen keeps shaping up to be such a beautiful and fascinating looking game.

“Cold gear”

To be honest, this has happened with female battle armor for years. You go ahead and run around in that cold-resistant gown, Link.

Lil fella wanted that meal so bad.

And there you have it. That’s your Evening Reading for this fine May 16. We hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget you can support Shacknews if you want for as little as a dollar a month through Shacknews Mercury. Don’t have a dollar? Don’t need a dollar to enjoy Shackpets. It’s our free app on iOS and Android that lets you engage in the ultimate battle of pet cuteness. If you can’t get enough of Zelda, we just launched a Hero of Time sticker pack and you can pick it up in the store to get all sorts of heroic stickers for your pets now.

Thanks for stopping by, Shackers. Have a great evening. Don’t stay up too long on Tears of the Kingdom if you’ve got work in the morning! Or if you do, let us know the cool stuff you found in the Chatty section below.
