Link And Senua Got Their Due
In case you weren’t made aware or didn’t get a chance to tune in, last night the Game Awards 2017 was broadcast, and with it came not only a celebration of some of the year’s best titles but also a handful of sneak peeks at the gaming projects set for release in the next couple of years. These included a new Death Stranding trailer, a third Bayonetta game and FromSoftware’s surprising and cryptic announcement.
As you can imagine, gamers were practically frothing at the mouth. That, and everyone was totally fawning of Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro’s bromance.
But what of the actual winners? Well, for all those who missed the event, Gamesradar managed to compress all the victors into a neat little article.
