Will we get the band together in Discord one last time this year for this? I seem to remember being on the brink of tears in bed wondering why the hell I was even staying up so late watching it last time, so I'd continue to rely on all of you for entertainment.

He did say they would have no other presence at the show. It’s a difficult spot. He takes a side here, then what about Ubisoft, Riot, and any number of companies that have had these type of workplace conditions the past year or two. It’s a little easy calling out a company that has no marker in the games industry at the moment, while being silent with companies that prop up his show.

Keighley's predicament certainly isn't helped by the fact he's got the president of Activision, CEO of Ubisoft and co-founder of Riot on the advisory board of the Awards, no.

So I'm guessing there's another crummy preshow as part of this? The website says 

THE GAME AWARDS AIRS LIVE AND FREE ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9 AT 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT / 1 AM GMT.

But the timezone chart shows something at 4:30pm PT, etc. 

 

 

Yeah I'd expect so, though if its Bosman hosting then that'd numb the pain for me (I've no idea if he's doing it).

Outside of the reveals, I don't much care for the awards so yeah. I'll still hop on and watch what I can but I'm sure its easy enough to catch up on all of the trailers in the AM.

 

The point is to make these shows more streamlined and well paced. Not MORE bloated, Geoff. He was doing pretty good the last few years, too.
