Evening Reading - August 1, 2023

It's nighttime in America, which means it's time for another round of Evening Reading.


Hello, Shackers, and welcome to the month of August. We’re excited to bring another fine month of content to you, and can’t wait for you to see what we have in store. That said, today marks the end of the first day of the month and that means it’s time to close it out with the first Evening Reading of August! Come along as we close down another day of posting right. We hope you enjoy.

In case you missed it at Shacknews…

And now… More stuff from The Internet

News from the Street Fighter 6 grind

This is the most important tier list I’ve seen for Street Fighter 6 so far, and 100 percent true.

Speaking of Justin Wong

It’s the anniversary of EVO Moment 37, in which Daigo Umehara parried Justin Wong in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike to win it all in an amazing comeback. Looks like someone figured out how to perfectly recreate that moment in Street Fighter 6.

Street Games

Lord knows they’re fast enough, but hopefully they know how to stop in their tracks before the little girl turns around.

More fun in the FGC

Octopimp, being the swell guy that he is, recently embraced this meme and it was glorious. This version is absolute perfection, no notes.

It’s always fun till the brands show up

This is basically the flowchart of all trends when it comes to social media, memes, and jokes.

Has this ever happened to you?

You have proven your resourcefulness, lmao

This is basically how we tackle Shrines for Shacknews guides before we choose to do it the right way.
