The Inner Gamer,

250: Death Stranding, The Game Awards and Gaming in 2020

December 16, 2019

Welcome to episode 250! This episode marks well over 350 hours of content we’ve produced over the last 4 years. For 250, we have an incredible episode to share with our listeners. First off, we finally dive into Death Stranding and give our first impressions of the game. It’s unique, a little weird and somewhat relaxing. We explain a bit of the story, discuss the gameplay, gorgeous graphics and more in this review.

Our news is all about The Game Awards! We discuss the winners of several categories and dive into all the world exclusives. We saw our first PS5 game called Godfall and the reveal of Xbox Series X with the first launch title: Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2.

Our discussion looks forward to 2020 where we talk about our most anticipated games from Cyberpunk 2077 to the just revealed Half-Life Alyx. It’s an exciting year for games and we can’t wait to share our favorites. We’re also taking the next few weeks off so come back and join us in January where we kick off the year with our Game of the Year for 2020!

Special thanks to Crazzie Pro Gear. They provided us with some incredible pro-level backbacks for carrying our computer equipment to all our events. If you want a bag yourself, head over to their website to purchase one! A portion of the proceeds go to support The Inner Gamer.
