Dec 22, 2020
We're pretty confident that all developers that released a game in 2020 would see that as their proudest moment. Just launching a video game during a pandemic is an incredible achievement.
However, the second proudest moment for them, of course, is being recognised at the most flash and prestigious video games awards ceremony of the year: The Spotty Awards!
No expense has been spared for this year’s awards show, which celebrates the best that video games had to offer, and only very briefly mentions what video games will be offering in 2021. We couldn’t nab any world premieres, so we thought we’d leave off the trailers and announcements, this year.
So, with The Spotty Awards, we don’t recap the last seven days in PC video gaming. Instead, we celebrate the video games we enjoyed more than other video games over the past year. Colm and Matthew have both chosen four of their favourites, as well as their outright games of the year for 2020. There are laughs, there are tears, but it’s mostly just them chatting about the PC games they liked.
There is always time for a trip to the MSR arena, and given the time of year, this week’s Mystery Steam Reviews is all about Christmas-themed video games. But, ya know, there aren’t loads of them, so we’ve also opened it up to snowier games, too.
If you’re celebrating something in late December, we hope you have a lovely time doing it. If you’re just planning on eating and drinking loads, we also think you should enjoy yourselves, too!
Thanks very much for listening / watching. We'll see you again in the new year!
