cloudeaglecloudeagle Registered User regular

    "It Takes Two" won last year, RDR2 got snubbed the prior, and Xeno 3 got at least nominated for this one. Everyone's assuming Elden Ring and they're probably right but TGA have yet to actually announce the obvious choice.

    Of course ITT even having a chance has a lot to do with Covid, so yeah, I would blame that more for the state of things than Keeley.

    Also don't forget to register for a chance to win a free Deck if you haven't yet (and if they're still accepting registrations): https://store.steampowered.com/sale/thegameawardssteamdeckdrop2022

    Almost no chance Xenoblade 3 wins, but I’m glad it got nominated since that means it will be included in the orchestral montage of nominees. Gives the flautists a chance to show off.

    Steam is giving away a Steam Deck every minute if you watch the awards through steam.

    It is a glorious shitshow in there.

    I'm curious what they are going to do with that. Dead Cells is such a terrific game already.

    Edit: That ad for the elephant plushie was hilarious. Especially if you have the context of the game behind it.

    I’m gonna buy one as a Christmas present for my friend that I played the game with. He doesn’t watch events like this, so it’ll be a total surprise.

    Yeah, it's not showing up for me at all on Steam. There used to be a little thing I could expand to show the stream, and it's gone now, even after restarting the client. :\

    I had to click on the little arrow in the corner of the window that was failing to load. It opens up a full screen to watch from.

    Hopefully it'll work.

    That little section I could expand that had that arrow isn't showing up on the page for me anymore.

    Unless it's a twitch joke, they somehow think that there is a chat command to win a steam deck, I think

    which is not the case obv

    The best part about the weird Steam Deck thing is that the winners are getting announced IN CHAT and nobody can read the chat so nobody's going to win anything.

    That's kind of what I figured, but I thought I'd ask. Chat wasn't even showing for me for the first while then it was suddenly there and just walls of /claim.

    Anyway I think Chris Judge is doing his part to make valve give away more decks. :lol:
