The Game Awards Are Tonight: Special Guests Teased in Preview

Posted by | December 03, 2015 | News, Video | No Comments

The guest list for tonight’s Game Awards is pretty massive, with big names from Troy Baker to Mark Hamill.

Oh, and Shaq. We’ll also see news about upcoming games like Far Cry Primal, Quantum Break, Mortal Kombat, and The Walking Dead Michonne. There will also be announcements about Rocket League and Horizon Zero Dawn.

The Game Awards have been the subject of controversy this year when their judging panel was revealed with only one woman participant.

The games up for Game of the Year include Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Super Mario Maker, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The FMV game Her Story, which is one of our favorites, it up for Best Independent Game. Its writer, Sam Barlow, is also nominated.

In the Best Family Game category, we see Disney Infinity 3.0LEGO Dimensions, and Skylanders SuperChargers nominated, as well as Splatoon and Super Mario Maker. We’ve reviewed all these games this year, and it looks like it’s going to be a hard category to vote on. Though we’d probably pick Splatoon, even if its local multiplayer isn’t our favorite.

Tune into The Game Awards tonight on Twitch and YouTube at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST.
