Everything From The Game Awards 2018

A no-show for Aliens

The Game Awards are over, thank the heavens, they went on for three and half hours and Team TSA was dropping like flies near the end. A lot of new games and surprises were announced, so many in fact that they are dropping off the front age of TSA so here’s a handy catch up post with all the news.

  1. The subtitle of your article summarises it best, good to hear you noticed that painful fact.

    I wasn’t overwhelmed, maybe due to the odd time of the show, maybe because of the usual exaggeration that is poured over everything in these US style shows, like a topping on a cake you’re not overly convinced of.

    It felt a bit a drag, with every game being allowed about 32 seconds, just to move on to the next. The advantage is, of course you don’t need to sit through those annoying, endless sports game presentations, so it is quite efficient. But then, there’s nothing that really stands out of the mass.

    Why is TSA not in the jury?

  2. I thought Sony were going to announce the release dates for Dreams, TLoU2 and Days Gone?

    • Days Gone has a release date, March.

      • Maybe the third one was something else then but i guess we’re still waiting to find out about the others.

      • Ghost of Tsushima?

    • Yep – that was it aerobes, PushSquare had that rumour before the show.

  3. Days Gone 26 April.

  4. I watched it all on the the rumour of the MK11 reveal. It was worth the entire night. And the class of the slight of hand reveal that was fantastically played. Think I would have actually pissed myself had I actually been there

  5. Disappointed on TLoU2 announcement but few game trailers have me looking forward to the future. Anthem is going to be shit hot! :)

  6. On No annoucment* ^
