We have a new episode of The Nerd Stash Show available now! Surprisingly enough, we only get into one major topic this week. The Game Awards 2020. Yes, Geoff Keighley and his team have revealed the full nominees for the upcoming awards show. We dive into the snubs from this year’s show, how Jedi: Fallen Order’s late 2019 release possibly hindered its chances of winning in 2020, and just so much more. Should The Game Awards be pushed back a month to allow for more games to make the cut? Hear our thoughts below along with timestamps and our official description for the episode:
“Hello, and welcome back to another new episode of The Nerd Stash Show. The crew is back together after the PlayStation 5 Special. Earlier this week, Geoff Keighley and The Game Awards announced the list of the 2020 nominees, and wow, there is a lot to talk about. Some great games got nominated, and some great games got snubbed. But is there a controversy brewing with the rules of The Game Awards? Particularly the cutoff period for game releases? Let’s break that down.
The conversation goes on for longer than we expected, so the rest of the stories got moved to the Lightning Round. Topics include Demon’s Souls, Bethesda (again), Project 007 getting announced, and Brandon goes on a bit of a tirade about Kingdom Hearts. This is another episode you won’t want to miss!”
