After what seems like a very long week, Sid and Brian are back again, and in this episode they’re discussing the nominations for Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards 2016.
In a surprise move, Joseph has returned from his damnation to join us for a three hour episode of shenanigans. In what was planned by Sid as a method to create some interesting discussion and heat between Brian and Joseph, let’s just say it backfired. It turns out, two very different co-hosts may end up having some similarities.
The Game Awards 2016’s nominations feature a lot of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. One of the biggest releases of the year. Both Brian and Joseph feel that the game doesn’t deserve this many commendations. However, Sid does his best to explain that the Jury that are both nominating and deciding on this year’s winner are more likely to pick something like Uncharted as it’s the biggest system seller and the most overall appeasing game across anything released in 2016.
Other notable nominations include Overwatch, Blizzard’s newest game and IP aswell as Doom, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.
The most interesting categorys in this year’s selection seem to be the Action, Action/Adventure, Strategy and Independant Game categories. All with strong contenders that make it hard to choose and/or decide what the final outcome will be.
In other news, Collector’s Editions of Mass Effect Andromeda no longer include an actual copy of the game. Naturally Brian and Joseph aren’t too happy at the proposition.
In conclusion, we hope you enjoy this double stuffed episode of I’m Just Playin’ and welcome back Joseph to the team.
