The Game Awards 2019 live report

Some good surprises, a few awards and so many adverts. Everything as it happened.

Thank the heavens. It is over.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

MrTomFTW: 1:30am? I pity the poor fool who is staying up to cover this. Oh hi Martin.

*sadface*

Martin Robinson

God it's not even 1.30am and I'm still making a mess of this.

Martin Robinson

Anyway hi, hello and how do you do. I'm just about to go out for some drinks before I head back for tonight's shenanigans.

Martin Robinson

I'd like to say it'll be the first ever drunken live report here on Eurogamer.

Martin Robinson

Though *ahem* that might not strictly be true.

Martin Robinson

teknoblade3442: I’d rather pull this all- nighter than the other one if what is going to happen will happen

I honestly don't know which will be the grimmer of the two.

Martin Robinson

Oridan: How long is this show?

Too long.

Martin Robinson

I think typically it comes in at around two hours though. I'm bracing myself for that.

Martin Robinson

nimzy: Surely we're eventually going to get a name a bit more interesting than "the Game Awards" for this show. Do they have a name for the trophy yet?

They're called Geoffs.

Martin Robinson

I do think The Geoffs would be a better name for the show as well.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, I'm heading off into Croydon for a night out. I know how to party, me.

Martin Robinson

Have fun and see you all back here later tonight!

Martin Robinson

Oh dear god no.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, hi and hello. The pre-show begins at 1am. Which is when the show starts as well? Either way I'll be with you then.

Martin Robinson

dogmanstar_: /pokes Martin

*pokes back*

Martin Robinson

But like, twice as hard.

Martin Robinson

Anyway sorry I was having a bit of a cry.

Martin Robinson

Actually I've just counted and I think there's five of us here?

Martin Robinson

I thought there was, but then there wasn't. Unless the pre-show is at 1.30am and the show is at 2am.

Martin Robinson

It is genuinely lovely to see you all here.

Martin Robinson

So what to expect?

Martin Robinson

Video game announcements, pointless awards and frequent bouts of existential dread as it becomes impossible to block out the horror show of the outside world.

Martin Robinson

Video games though!

Martin Robinson

There should be some PS5-ish announcements, a look at Ghosts of Tsushima, something Nintendo-related - maybe Metroid Prime Trilogy's time to finally be unveiled - and plenty more besides.

Martin Robinson

In between the interesting stuff there will be plenty of cringe - which, if I'm honest, is what I'm really here for.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: I still call them computer games. Video games is a bit too American for me.

I call them 'art'.

Martin Robinson

MORE IMPORTANTLY.

Martin Robinson

Who's drinking what?

Martin Robinson

I am on a pot of coffee, but I have whiskey and maybe something even stronger waiting in the wings.

Martin Robinson

Kami: Dr Pepper Zero.

Hardcore.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: I'm liking that martin has rolled up late to his own party and is now trying to shoehorn some kind of game chat into this shitshow so when his boss reads this clusterfuck in the morning he may only get a final written warning, don't worry, we've got your back. I want another Frogger remake, this time in 4D

I've been rumbled.

Martin Robinson

Can everyone just pretend I was totally here all along and definitely not napping on my sofa?

Martin Robinson

Kami: To be honest, I get the feeling whatever your poison the hangover tomorrow will be very real.

Too true.

Martin Robinson

I make it half past.

Martin Robinson

Let's do this.

Martin Robinson

Or let's wait a tiny bit longer.

Martin Robinson

Okay maybe wait a tiny bit longer.

Martin Robinson

Look, Geoff. Mate.

Martin Robinson

M8.

Martin Robinson

m8ight.

Martin Robinson

It's 1.30am over here.

Martin Robinson

Make that 1.31am.

Martin Robinson

We just want to go to bed. It's been a rough night.

Martin Robinson

Get. On. With. It.

Martin Robinson

All we're getting is the sound of incessant drums.

Martin Robinson

Is it Geoff on the drums?

Martin Robinson

dogmanstar_: Did you have a nice night out Martin?

I did! Until roughly around 10pm. Then it got awful.

Martin Robinson

Splosh: They're drawing straws on which dev does the coked up presentation.

Funnily enough those same straws might come in handy to do a line or two.

Martin Robinson

Got to think about these things in a cashless world - no more £20 notes knocking around to roll up.

Martin Robinson

One minute to go.

Martin Robinson

Sixty seconds!

Martin Robinson

And here we go.

Martin Robinson

Splosh: Martin, are you secretly hoping for an Arms 2 reveal.

Always.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: I once snorted two grams of whizz off a spinning Jive Bunny record. I'd like to see kids today do that with their bloody Mp3's

Hero.

Martin Robinson

Oh. So this is the pre-show.

Martin Robinson

No offence Geoff.

Martin Robinson

But fucking do one?

Martin Robinson

The pre-show starts when the show starts at 1.30am.

Martin Robinson

Matthew_Hornet: Apparently our award for waiting is Green Day. OK great.

Great.

Martin Robinson

Here's an award anyway - Destiny 2 wins best community support, and Luke Smith makes a rare appearance.

Martin Robinson

Lol

Martin Robinson

Here's what we're all here for though. TRAILERS.

Martin Robinson

TRAILERS FOR DLC TO SECOND TIER SWITCH GAMES WE'D ALREADY FORGOTTEN ABOUT.

Martin Robinson

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is getting a danger room, which sounds kind of kinky.

Martin Robinson

That DLC also brings Gambit, Cable, Iceman and Phoenix to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

Martin Robinson

And here's Lual Mayen with his game showing us the experience of a refugee. A worthwhile moment there.

Martin Robinson

Best score next - Cadence of Hyrule, Death Stranding, DMC5, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Sayonara Wild Hearts are nominated.

Martin Robinson

And if it's not Sayonara Wild Hearts.

Martin Robinson

Ah of course it isn't, because Geoff's mate Koj was nominated - Death Stranding wins.

Martin Robinson

What a surprise.

Martin Robinson

Splosh: Well, guess who got the coke then...

Would dearly love some right now to keep me awake.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, here's Manhunter. It's got sharks.

Martin Robinson

It looks a bit like that Dreamcast Jaws game. But maybe not as shit.

Martin Robinson

A quick blast through some esports awards because they know full well no-one gives a toss.

Martin Robinson

But still people in the crowd scream.

Martin Robinson

Meanwhile we're obsessing over the nubbin on the shoulder of host Sydnee Goodman's fine green dress.

Martin Robinson

My personal theory is that it's a sock that got caught up in the dress and lodged itself there.

Martin Robinson

BEST TWEET OF THE YEAR PEOPLE.

Martin Robinson

Pretty sure I'm in with a shout for this one.

Martin Robinson

Ah shit I just remembered all I ever do on Twitter is retweet Addlestone Jeff, the boss of Wimpy Addlestone.

Martin Robinson

Still, I *could* be in with a shot.

Martin Robinson

I sort of dozed and are they talking about Spore?

Martin Robinson

This is the new game from Amplitude and Sega, and it's a 4X strategy inspired by the Bayeux tapestry.

Martin Robinson

Did I spell that right? I think I did.

Martin Robinson

That was Humankind. And this is another reveal.

Martin Robinson

It is...

Martin Robinson

A Switch game.

Martin Robinson

That looks like an 80s cartoon.

Martin Robinson

And it is...

Martin Robinson

Nope I've got no idea,

Martin Robinson

It's No More Heroes 3.

Martin Robinson

Coming in 2020.

Martin Robinson

I would be excited, but I played Travis Strikes Back so I'm very much not.

Martin Robinson

A new Final Fantasy 7 trailer is next.

Martin Robinson

And for all my grumbling this pre-show has delivered some nice surprises.

Martin Robinson

(Also *shhh* I've never played FF7 so I can't really say much to this trailer other than it looks very nice).

Martin Robinson

One final award before the main show - it's best beat 'em up!

Martin Robinson

And the winner is... ARMS!

Martin Robinson

(nah it's Smash Bros).

Martin Robinson

Bruce Willis has come to take the award.

Martin Robinson

Oh no wait it's Doug Bowser.

Martin Robinson

Eugh.

Martin Robinson

And the show proper begins.

Martin Robinson

I think - and I could be wrong as I'm well old and haven't listened to any music made after 1974 - that this is Chvrches.

Martin Robinson

This does have a mega Eurovision vibe. Not sure whether that's a good thing or not though.

Martin Robinson

It is, of course, from Death Stranding.

Martin Robinson

Their music's normally better than this, right? It's a bit of a bland ballad.

Martin Robinson

Still, if it's good enough for Koj.

Martin Robinson

That was Chvrches. This is video games.

Martin Robinson

And here, after a brief montage (that's heavy on Death Stranding) is Geoff.

Martin Robinson

Who's rocking trainers and a tux.

Martin Robinson

He looks like he's about to go to the school disco.

Martin Robinson

Jonathan Nolan, co-creator of Westworld, is here to present the award for best narrative.

Martin Robinson

There are gaming gags, and some of them land.

Martin Robinson

THE NOMINEES!

Martin Robinson

A Plague Tale, Control, Death Stranding - Death Stranding! - Disco Elysium and The Outer Worlds.

Martin Robinson

And Disco Elysium is the winner.

Martin Robinson

Rightfully so, I'd say - and the devs look absolutely delighted.

Martin Robinson

900,000 people watching this right now!

Martin Robinson

I mean, not this live report.

Martin Robinson

There's four of us here.

Martin Robinson

But hey, it's the quality not the quantity of the company, right?

Martin Robinson

Anyway here's a REVEAL.

Martin Robinson

It. Is..

Martin Robinson

It looks like From Dust but know it's not... It is?

Martin Robinson

It's an Xbox ad of some sort.

Martin Robinson

And it's the new Xbox.

Martin Robinson

Yup, Xbox Series X.

Martin Robinson

It looks like a PC.

Martin Robinson

It looks like it belongs in Currys.

Martin Robinson

It reminds me of those OG Xbox prototypes in its... Bluntness.

Martin Robinson

Also that name is... Brave? Uninspired? Whatever it is I'm not sure it's great.

Martin Robinson

And here's a new game.

Martin Robinson

Our first look at a Series X game?

Martin Robinson

Ah, it's Ninja Theory.

Martin Robinson

It's Senua 2 - a Hellblade sequel.

Martin Robinson

Ninja Theory being Microsoft developers now, of course.

Martin Robinson

Well this is a pleasant surprise.

Martin Robinson

And this was very much worth staying up for.

Martin Robinson

I'm still getting my head around Series X.

Martin Robinson

It sounds more like a razor blade than a console.

Martin Robinson

Have I?

Martin Robinson

It's a quick break - so to the bathroom!

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: Martin, you werent refreshing on my end for ten minutes, but have you ever been refreshing on my end for ten minutes?

I've certainly dreamt of it.

Martin Robinson

But honestly.

Martin Robinson

Xbox Series X?

Martin Robinson

Someone who does the American sports is here so I'm a bit confused.

Martin Robinson

Actually it was like a fiver a pint?

Martin Robinson

Deffo not cheap.

Martin Robinson

Anyway what's that about Control? Sounds good.

Martin Robinson

One small detail about the Xbox Series X - it's got a share button.

Martin Robinson

And it looks like a PC.

Martin Robinson

And it's got a pretty dumb name.

Martin Robinson

dogmanstar_: Did I miss control?

I did...

Martin Robinson

Kami: It's a box with an X on it.

There's a job at DF if ever you want it with this level of analysis.

Martin Robinson

Godfall - which is a PS5 game - has just been revealed.

Martin Robinson

There's a story on the site - or there will be shortly! - with more details. It's developed by Counterplay, published by Gearbox.

Martin Robinson

And that might well be our first look at a PS5 game - I think FF14 has sort of been confirmed for the console but this is laying claim to be the first as well.

Martin Robinson

Amidst the Xbox reveal was news that Halo Infinite is coming next year - and, as we all assumed, it's cross-gen.

Martin Robinson

And amidst all that some awards were given - Modern Warfare gets best audio, Fire Emblem best strategy.

Martin Robinson

And then some streaming bollocks.

Martin Robinson

The pace at these things is always pretty lively.

Martin Robinson

And here's another new game announcement!

Martin Robinson

Switch, by Square Enix.

Martin Robinson

God please don't be another 6/10 RPG Factory game.

Martin Robinson

Oh no, it's from Asano, the Octopath/Bravely Default people - so might actually be good!

Martin Robinson

It looks very Bravely Default - and it's called.

Martin Robinson

Bravely Default 2.

Martin Robinson

Which will explain why it looks a lot like Bravely Default.

Martin Robinson

Didn't we already get a sequel?

Martin Robinson

And while I try to figure that out, a Warframe update is announced.

Martin Robinson

Here's an advert for Samsung.

Martin Robinson

This lad is sitting way too close to that TV.

Martin Robinson

A new Magic the Gathering game, introduced by a slightly insincere chap.

Martin Robinson

And it's a CG trailer so *shrugs*.

Martin Robinson

No idea what's going on but it looks expensive.

Martin Robinson

And it's an explicit drawn out look at someone drowning.

Martin Robinson

So that's nice.

Martin Robinson

Money well spent on that CG trailer I guess.

Martin Robinson

ANOTHER WORLD PREMIERE!

Martin Robinson

For a foresty first-person game from Playerunknown - it's called prologue?

Martin Robinson

Ikumi Nakamura is now here to cheer us all up.

Martin Robinson

And it's to present best art direction.

Martin Robinson

Nominees are Control, Death Stranding, Gris, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Sekiro, Link's Awakening.

Martin Robinson

Control is the deserved winner. Nice one Remedy.

Martin Robinson

Here's Donny Mustard of Epic to show us something.

Martin Robinson

Not before he casts a dismissive stare at Geoff's trainers.

Martin Robinson

He's like 'make an effort man'.

Martin Robinson

Mustard's got proper big boy shoes on.

Martin Robinson

We're getting details of the Star Wars Rise of Skywalker stuff hitting Fortnite on Saturday.

Martin Robinson

Actually scratch that - we're not.

Martin Robinson

We're just being reminded that something is happening on Saturday.

Martin Robinson

The only way to experience the film.

Martin Robinson

Preferably while playing on mobile.

Martin Robinson

Another announce, this time from a Canadian studio.

Martin Robinson

Is it The Darkness 3?

Martin Robinson

It's got a John Carpenter-esque soundtrack, someone dancing crazily and horror-ish moments.

Martin Robinson

Oh yes please.

Martin Robinson

It is Sons of the Forest.

Martin Robinson

Something about LoL so I'm going to feel horribly out of touch as I look on with a confused glaze in my eyes.

Martin Robinson

It's a CG trailer so *shrugs*.

Martin Robinson

Joe Madureira is involved in development.

Martin Robinson

And another ad break - but hey Grimes is after the break!

Martin Robinson

Right, the ad break is over.

Martin Robinson

And we're back with an, er, ad that gives us a look at the music of Cyberpunk 2077.

Martin Robinson

Grimes, ASAP Rocky, Richard Devine, Nina Kraviz, Deadly Hunta, Rat Boy, Tina Guo.

Martin Robinson

I probably spelt all those wrong. Anyway, they're all in Cybperpunk 2077.

Martin Robinson

And now here is Grimes.

Martin Robinson

Which seems like a good time to take some drugs.

Martin Robinson

I like Grimes, but that beat has come straight from the bad bit of the late 90s.

Martin Robinson

That is precisely what everyone in the office is saying.

Martin Robinson

Nil points, I say.

Martin Robinson

And now another award. The best action game with Norman Reedus.

Martin Robinson

He's got lovely hair.

Martin Robinson

Like, that hair takes effort to maintain.

Martin Robinson

A couple of hours in curlers every morning.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: I hope Elon calls someone a Paedo, just because he can afford to

*pedo.

Martin Robinson

Sorry, I was trying to figure out if Elon Musk and Grimes are still an item, and while I was doing that DMC5 won best action game.

Martin Robinson

Blessed Itsuno takes the award.

Martin Robinson

11 year wait for the sequel? That feels a bit harsh on the might DmC.

Martin Robinson

Here's another announce: Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance.

Martin Robinson

It's a CG trailer *shrugs*.

Martin Robinson

And that's out next year.

Martin Robinson

A quick awkward interlude with Geoff mugging off with Apex Legends' Mirage.

Martin Robinson

This is horrendous.

Martin Robinson

I think they've just announced a new skin for Mirage or something, I dunno.

Martin Robinson

And some Xmas-related content for the game too.

Martin Robinson

Could have just said that at the start and not guffed around on stage for so long m8s.

Martin Robinson

I'm so tired. When does this end.

Martin Robinson

EvilAspirin: This makes me want to download Apex Legends just so I can do physical damage to the game.

Not sure that's the best idea. But I get the sentiment.

Martin Robinson

A new Ori Will of the Wisps trailer now while my will o' to die becomes ever stronger.

Martin Robinson

Not much new there, but it does confirm that it's a very good looking game that's coming out next year.

Martin Robinson

Oh that is definitely happening, isn't it?

Martin Robinson

Ah - a small detail in that Ori trailer was that it's been pushed back a month.

Martin Robinson

Muppets are here now.

Martin Robinson

I thought Beaker was cancelled.

Martin Robinson

This is also awful.

Martin Robinson

Beaker's just had some VR googles superglued to his head and he sounds genuinely traumatised.

Martin Robinson

It could be the late hour but I'm genuinely unnerved and upset by this.

Martin Robinson

Also he's in Untitled Goose Game now or something?

Martin Robinson

I don't know but Norman Reedus looks like he's enjoying it.

Martin Robinson

And now an award - Games for Impact.

Martin Robinson

The nominees are Concrete Genie, Kind Words, Life is Strange 2, Sea of Solitude and one other thing which I totally missed and have forgotten already.

Martin Robinson

As amusing as this is I'm not sure it's the best match for the Games for Impact award.

Martin Robinson

Gris, the game I forgot to mention among the nominees, wins.

Martin Robinson

So that's nice.

Martin Robinson

Oh. Gris sounds like geese.

Martin Robinson

That's why the muppet goose is there. That makes sense.

Martin Robinson

It all makes sense now.

Martin Robinson

Nothing really makes sense at 3.17am.

Martin Robinson

3.19am even. So tired. So confused.

Martin Robinson

Some more awards now anyway - Best Family Game.

Martin Robinson

Look, I'm not even going to type all the nominees out.

Martin Robinson

Just know that Luigi's Mansion 3 won.

Martin Robinson

Best sports/racing game now. And the winner is Crash Team Racing.

Martin Robinson

And now the best mobile game, with the winner being... Call of Duty: Mobile.

Martin Robinson

A new studio and a new game - this being from some of the people behind Prey and Dishonored.

Martin Robinson

Now I've seen it I think you're right. It is inside out.

Martin Robinson

Poor lad must be as confused and tired as us.

Martin Robinson

The studio is Wolfeye, the publisher is Devolver, the setting is the wild west and it looks like an isometric deal - so a departure from their previous first-person games.

Martin Robinson

Er...

Martin Robinson

I'm afraid Half-Life has been pulled from the show.

Martin Robinson

This is Weird West.

Martin Robinson

Which looks interesting. And here's a new action RPG MMO which is...

Martin Robinson

Ooooh, that's good to know.

Martin Robinson

I jest not - Valve announced just before the show.

Martin Robinson

That was Magic Legends.

Martin Robinson

It's just a CG trailer *shrugs*.

Martin Robinson

Here's a new Stadia trailer.

Martin Robinson

It's pretty poor.

Martin Robinson

I missed it - what was the theme?

Martin Robinson

I'm on a mission to collect them all, especially now the timed event ones are available.

Martin Robinson

A new Oculus game now.

Martin Robinson

Which is a 2D brawler, but, y'know, in 3D. It's from Twisted Pixel.

Martin Robinson

Here's Ninja, who doesn't know how to slice bread.

Martin Robinson

Or how to clean a suit. The state of that thing lad.

Martin Robinson

Just take it back to the dry cleaners.

Martin Robinson

Ninja's here to reveal the winner of Best Multiplayer Game.

Martin Robinson

Which is Apex Legends.

Martin Robinson

And the horrible realisation that we're going until 4am and maybe later begins to creep in.

Martin Robinson

Here's the promised extended look at Ghosts of Tsushima.

Martin Robinson

Did I spell that right? I think somehow, against all the odds, I did.

Martin Robinson

This is captured from a PS4 Pro, btw - but it's not a big leap of the imagination to see this being a cross-platform game.

Martin Robinson

Cross-platform? I mean cross-gen.

Martin Robinson

But hey who knows.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: Martin, if we all went to bed would you be obliged to keep typing to no one?

Ha, I don't know. Let's find out!

Martin Robinson

Ghosts of Tsushima has the best swaying foliage since The Witcher 3

Martin Robinson

It also looks more and more like Tenchu so I'm 100 per cent in.

Martin Robinson

As pretty as it looks, the character models look quite strange.

Martin Robinson

Still, those leaves man.

Martin Robinson

The screen comes up to reveal a full orchestra, and nose flute guy from the original reveal is nowhere to be seen.

Martin Robinson

We have a new flute man.

Martin Robinson

Who looks like Carlos Valderrama

Martin Robinson

Gears Tactics is the next trailer/reveal.

Martin Robinson

The title says it all really.

Martin Robinson

It's Gears.

Martin Robinson

With Tactics.

Martin Robinson

Naraka is up for a reveal now.

Martin Robinson

It is *checks story in the CMS because I'm too tired to sit through this trailer* a melee based battle royale.

Martin Robinson

So For Honor. But there's loads of you.

Martin Robinson

Another Magic trailer.

Martin Robinson

I love how Carl Weathers clearly can't be arsed in these adverts.

Martin Robinson

There's something heroic about the half-arsed celebrity appearance in a video game ad.

Martin Robinson

Just taking the money and running. *Salutes*.

Martin Robinson

spookyxelectric: Respect to Carl Weathers for being Apollo Creed and all that, but every time I see him I can only picture him wanting to make a stew in Arrested Development.

I just see his arm coming off and still firing the gun as it falls to the floor.

Martin Robinson

Best ongoing show goes to... This interminably long thing.

Martin Robinson

But the Best Ongoing Game award goes to Fortnite.

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: This is my life now.

We all live here now.

Martin Robinson

From that to another premiere - from Redhill Games. It looks like some Crazy Frog bullshit and really don't do this to me at this time of night.

Martin Robinson

It's a joke intro to 9 to 5, which is a free-to-play PC game from a lot of ex-Remedy folks.

Martin Robinson

Another couple of awards.

Martin Robinson

IDK.

Martin Robinson

My left eye has started twitching.

Martin Robinson

Matthew_Hornet: I'm watching this on my night shift, so technically two of us are getting paid for this.

*high five*

Martin Robinson

Please no.

Martin Robinson

nimzy: I'm just here for the drinking game

Drinking! That's a good idea.

Martin Robinson

While we get more adverts for Magic, and this insufferable prick Linus, who wants anything from the kitchen?

Martin Robinson

I'm getting some bourbon.

Martin Robinson

AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE BISCUITS NOSIREE

Martin Robinson

This is just adverts now.

Martin Robinson

Adverts and Green Day.

Martin Robinson

Apologies for the brief silence.

Martin Robinson

a) I hate Green Day

Martin Robinson

b) I was loading my crack pipe.

Martin Robinson

Isn't this guy like 50?

Martin Robinson

They're doing another song.

Martin Robinson

Going to look for something a bit stronger than crack.

Martin Robinson

Maybe that bottle of bleach?

Martin Robinson

Dunno but can confirm that these drugs I'm on aren't making it sound any better.

Martin Robinson

So that was Green Day.

Martin Robinson

We are all living in Geoff Keighley's teenage wet dream.

Martin Robinson

'We have a lot of game show still coming up'.

Martin Robinson

Holy sweet christ no.

Martin Robinson

Not least because this crack is going to kick in in a moment and my spelling's going to get APPALLING.

Martin Robinson

Is that how you spell appalling? I don't even know.

Martin Robinson

On the plus side I think we've been here so long there's another general election tomorrow.

Martin Robinson

Let's go do it all again!

Martin Robinson

INSOMANiAC: Can't you do some kind of Eurogamer giveaway? You dragged us into this with your 'two hour' bollocks. I want something free.

I giveaway my time, my sleep, my sanity.

Martin Robinson

Here's Reggie anyway.

Martin Robinson

Who's become a parody of himself since leaving Nintendo.

Martin Robinson

Reggie is wearing a Reggie badge.

Martin Robinson

I actually quite respect that.

Martin Robinson

Reggie is here to present best indie game.

Martin Robinson

I think.

Martin Robinson

He won't stop talking.

Martin Robinson

I think he's delivering his own eulogy?

Martin Robinson

Yes, he is just presenting the best indie game.

Martin Robinson

Just had a word or two hundred thousand to get off his chest first.

Martin Robinson

Disco Elysium picks up the award.

Martin Robinson

This award is brought to you by Subway.

Martin Robinson

Another premiere.

Martin Robinson

It's not a CG trailer!

Martin Robinson

But it is just an animation that reveals next to nothing, for another League of Legends tie-in.

Martin Robinson

It's an action platformer.

Martin Robinson

I really, really, really hope so.

Martin Robinson

Kick me if you want, it might help keep me awake.

Martin Robinson

Darkseide: FALCON KICK to Martin's groin

Oooof

Martin Robinson

Sorry for the scarcity of updates.

Martin Robinson

I'm just totally defeated by this nightmare of a show.

Martin Robinson

It's adverts, occasionally broken up by more adverts.

Martin Robinson

See, they can reannounce Wolf Among Us 2.

Martin Robinson

And I just don't care.

Martin Robinson

Ashly Burch is here to present Best Game Direction - and the winner is Death Stranding.

Martin Robinson

Koj, here is your moment.

Martin Robinson

Kind of sad Geoff's not there to give him a good tongueing too.

Martin Robinson

As silly as it is Kojima getting the award at his mate's show - I think he might sort of deserve it. I love Death Stranding.

Martin Robinson

There's one award left.

Martin Robinson

JUST ONE.

Martin Robinson

We might be able to get through this people!

Martin Robinson

After we find out what the best gaming tweet of the year is...

Martin Robinson

Oh lordy what is my life.

Martin Robinson

More adverts. The same adverts.

Martin Robinson

Again and again and again and again.

Martin Robinson

Right, we're back from the adverts for a few more adverts.

Martin Robinson

We've got one new announcement - it's Fast & Furious.

Martin Robinson

Is this Slightly Mad's game finally being announced?

Martin Robinson

Ha literally the only thing that could wake me from that slumber.

Martin Robinson

It looks a bit budget, but it's got the brass that you want from a Fast & Furious game.

Martin Robinson

And yes it's from Slightly Mad Studios - an interesting departure from them.

Martin Robinson

VIN DIESEL IS HERE NOW.

Martin Robinson

Okay I'm happy now.

Martin Robinson

I'm Team Vin all the way - sorry Dwayne Johnson fans.

Martin Robinson

Honestly this is better than Breath of the Wild 2.

Martin Robinson

EvilAspirin: Oh God for a second I was worried he was going to show the 4 minute trailer for Fast 9 there...

Non-believer!

Martin Robinson

Can confirm a man is singing.

Martin Robinson

He really is singing.

Martin Robinson

We've gone Eurovision again.

Martin Robinson

There's another man singing.

Martin Robinson

A different man.

Martin Robinson

Doing different singing.

Martin Robinson

The game of the year is Sekiro.

Martin Robinson

Right.

Martin Robinson

Go to bed.

Martin Robinson

Now.

Martin Robinson

Run.

Martin Robinson

Nothing good will come of this show now.

Martin Robinson

Actually scratch that, Miyazaki is speaking so I will be patient and listen.

Martin Robinson

*Claps wearily*

Martin Robinson

*so wearily*

Martin Robinson

imagonnawin: Surprise easy mode announcement

Haha plz.

Martin Robinson

God that whole show was a thing wasn't it?

Martin Robinson

I can't remember a time before it started.

Martin Robinson

But we are free!

Martin Robinson

Go. Enjoy your lives. Be rid of this misery.

Martin Robinson

(and thanks for joining me)
