Evening Reading - August 22, 2023

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


Welcome, Shackers. We’ve come to the end of another Tuesday. It was a very Gamescom 2023 full of reveals and updates on upcoming games, and we had a lot of fun covering it all. Did you enjoy it? Either way, the day is at an end, the time for posting is over, and that means it’s Evening Reading-o’clock. Please enjoy as we wind down.

In case you missed it at Shacknews…

And now… More stuff from The Internet!!!

25 years ago yesterday, the Daywalker hunted the night

They’re damn right. This is one of the best character intros of all time.

Behold, the most dependable bear

Kuma is wearing Heihachi’s martial arts gear because he is defending Mishima HQ and waiting for his boss to come back. My heart. I will be a Kuma main!!!

A breadbug brigade

Really, the best kind of brigade you could have.

Ice-T in Payday 3

It was pretty cool to see the man himself, Ice-T, in Payday 3. Seems like only yesterday we were humbled by his The Division 2 mastery on Shacknews E4.

Maybe she was born with it

Maybe it’s Mortal Kombat. Va-va-va-voom, Sindel.

More Charles Martinet appreciation

A fun and ridiculous outtake. He will sorely be missed as Mario’s voice, but boy howdy is he just an all-around hoot in all he does. Hopefully that remains true as Mario Ambassador.

A poffle to close it out

Please enjoy this very adorable critter.
