What We Learned From Death Stranding + The Game Awards – 381

What We Learned From Death Stranding + The Game Awards – 381

Death Stranding is an upcoming action video game developed by Kojima Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4. We share what we’ve learned from the game and recap The Game Awards. We cover the highlights, lowlights and everything in between.

The Game Awards is a show that I really look forward to during the holiday season. It has its ups and down, I get it but we can’t shun what Geoff Keighley has done with celebrating the games industry. He has honored legends, Icons and even used his platform to step on the soapbox about the whole ‘Kojima / Konami’ situation when that was a thing.

That’s all for now! If there’s a topic you’d like us to discuss, or you have any feedback on previous shows, please send your comments and suggestions to [email protected]. On Discord? join our community on Discord.
