GOTY is It Takes Two

Everybody with a Series or PS5 console should download that Matrix tech demo, it's really impressive stuff.
It's incredible. I just spent the last hour walking and driving around the city. Although, it's funny how no matter how good the technology gets certain gameplay elements, such as the car chase, still feel just like an FMV game from the 90s.


Some sort of musician.

This was actually a pretty awesome show this year (especially compared to last year)! Got some amazing trailers for Sonic, some surprise announcements, some updated information, Metroid Dread won an award and an indie game got GOTY!

All in all, liked it a lot. Great job, Geoff!
