Evening Reading - October 3, 2023

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


Hello, Shackers! It’s the first week of Spooky Month! We hope you’re ready to enjoy Halloween festivities across some of your favorite games, or perhaps try some new horror adventures (the indie gaming space is full of them!). We’ve seen some teases of Halloween events on the way today, but the hours are getting late and it’s about time we shut down this day of posting. With that said, here’s a nice new Evening Reading to take you into the mid-week. Please enjoy!

In case you missed it at Shacknews…

And now… More stuff from The Internet!!!

Welcome to Spooky Month!

It’s howling good time.

The Fall Shacknews Game Jam!

RomSteady on Cortex

The last Shacknews Game Jam was really cool and creative. Very interested to see what the Chatty community comes up with for the BLOOD theme!

Gonna need some Bat tissue to go with this one

the man with the briefcase on Cortex

Not even Tim, Dick, Damien, or Barbara showed up. Brutal.

Start a fight in one easy step

I pronounce Cait Sith’s name as “benchwarmer” since I don’t trust him not to kill my party with his limit break.

Baldur’s Gate 3 presents: The Nuke

The hilarious creativity of players in Baldur’s Gate 3 never fails to amaze.

Once you see, you can’t unsee

So who’s ready to fight the new and improved(?) The End?!

The stabbin’ snek has a point

Eating, praying, and loving requires so much wasted movement. Stabbing required only one working articulate limb (or a very stretchy neck and strong job).

Elephant Mario 64

At least Mario can’t crush Yoshi’s back in the 64-verse.

Madden 25 Ultimate Swiftie Edition

As a Kansas City fan, it’s very weird watching so many people suddenly interested in my team because of the Kelce x Swift relationship, but it’s also pretty hilarious.

Kermit Trigger

Frog the frog here, wielding the mighty Masamyoooone. We’ve got a really great show for you tonight!

And there you have it. That’s your Evening Reading for this fine Tuesday, October 3. We hope you enjoyed and are happy with our coverage. If you’d like to support Shacknews, it’s as easy as checking out Mercury, where you can aid the site for as little as a dollar a month. Don’t have a dollar? Don’t need one to enjoy Shackpets. It’s our happy little app on iOS and Android where you can enjoy uploading, viewing, and pitting cute pet pics against each other in the ultimate battle of cuteness.

Flaff doesn't always sit so pretty. Sometimes treats are involved. This may have been one of those times.

Thanks for stopping by, Shackers. We hope you have a wonderful October. What are you up to this month? Getting your spooky on? Let us know in the Chatty below!
