Evening Reading - November 14, 2023

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


Good evening, Shackers. Welcome to the end of your Tuesday and the tipping point into the middle of November! We’re getting ever closer to the holidays and rounding out the year, but there’s still just a bit more to do before we close out 2023. In the meantime, today’s posting has come to an end and we’ve prepared another fine Evening Reading for you. Enjoy!

In case you missed it at Shacknews…

And now… More stuff from The Internet!!!

Listen to JK Simmons smacktalk the entire MK1 roster

Nobody does it like Simmons. Probably the best part of Omni-Man coming to Mortal Kombat 1.

A humble request for Game Awards performances

Screw sweeping and emotional orchestral scores. I just want these silly li'l guys to serenade me.

Big volcano energy

The world seems to be gushing magma at an alarming rate. Probably something worth being concerned with if you like living on Earth.

Our own video editor, Greg Burke made the papers in Orange County following BlizzCon! Look at that dapper cosplay. Well done, and thank you, Orange County Register!

Big oof, but true

It's been a terrible year for layoffs in tech and games industry and journalism. Best wishes to all affected. Don’t expect Geoff to acknowledge it, though. That’s bad for business.

Spider-Man written by the Gargoyles creator?!

I’m so in from the get-go for this. Can’t wait to see what it looks like.

Helpful PC-Building tips

Fact: Most computer parts don’t work as well after you hit them with a hammer.

Stop-motion Pokemon

This looks charming as all get-out. Something to look forward to watching at the end of the year!

We should all strive to be as chill and content as the Flaff.
