Untitled Goose Game Grabs Another GOTY Prize at 2020 GDC Awards

Untitled Goose Game has picked up another coveted Game of the Year gong at the 2020 Game Developers Choice Awards. The finalists for the grand prize included Outer Wilds, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Control, and Death Stranding, but Untitled Goose Game came out on top.

“We really never, ever expected that our game would resonate with people in the way that it has,” said House House’s Michael McMaster in the studio’s recorded response. “So it’s very strange and incredibly nice to receive this award.”

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/09/20/untitled-goose-game-review”]

Other notable success stories from the ceremony include Remedy Entertainment’s Control, which won awards for Best Audio, Best Technology, and Best Visual Art, and Disco Elysium, which won Best Narrative (plus Best Debut for Ukrainian developer ZA/UM). Death Stranding picked up the most nominations when the finalists were announced in early January (nominated in seven categories) but ultimately didn’t win any awards.

The 2020 Game Developers Choice awards were presented via a pre-recorded livestream this year following the cancellation of the March conference due to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Nominations for the Game Developers Choice Awards are finalised by the International Choice Awards Network, which is described as an “invitation-only group comprised of leading game creators from all parts of the video game industry.” Developers may not nominate a game that they are personally involved with.

[ignvideo width=610 height=374 url=https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/09/20/lets-play-untitled-goose-game-goose-facts-with-bruce-greene]

Untitled Goose Game previously won big at this year’s 23rd annual D.I.C.E. Awards where it was the surprise winner of Game of the Year and also bolted away the awards for Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game and Outstanding Achievement in Character.

IGN’s review called Untitled Goose Game a brief but endlessly charming adventure that had us honking the whole way through, so it’s definitely worth a gander.

Vote: Who is the Best Video Game Character of All Time?

We need your help determining the best video game character of all time. To do that, we are trying a new fun thing: The Power Ranking Face-Off! Every week on Power Ranking we ask you, the IGN audience, to help us answer some of pop culture’s toughest questions. Whether it’s finding out what the best Star Wars game is or what the best anime series is, you all have determined what the best of the best is. But this time, the topic’s so big, we need your help all month long.

Here’s how it will all work: We have over 300+ entrants, and your Face-Off votes will be used to crowdsource the top 64. From this list of 64 best characters, we’ll make a bracket and use that to run our Power Ranking tournament. The bracket will use Power Ranking polls that we’ll be posting on IGN.com, YouTube, Twitter, and Snapchat. Help us decide, once and for all who the best video game character is!

Screen Shot 2020-02-20 at 12.02.52 PM

Voting will officially close on March 6 and we will reveal the top 64 on March 9. Vote now through the Face-Off above and stay tuned for more Power Ranking polls throughout March. For more information on Face-Off, check out the explanation below.

How we will determine the winner?

After the final FaceOff results have come in, we will be taking the top 64 video game characters as ranked by your FaceOff voting to seed into a tournament bracket. From this bracket, the top 64 will be divided into groups of four which will be polled on multiple platforms: IGN.com, YouTube, Twitter and Snapchat. We will total the votes across all platforms to determine which characters move on to the next round. The winning characters of each round will be revealed on Power Ranking every Tuesday at 3pm PT starting on March 17th to April 14th.

What is a FaceOff?

Like the name suggests, a FaceOff is pitting two things together and you decide which one is the winner. In this case, you are voting to determine which of the two is better suited to be the best video game character of all time. It’s possible to see certain characters multiple times so keep voting for your favorites to ensure they get ranked higher than the rest. There are over 300 video game characters here that get randomly paired up each time you pick a winner.

How do I know when I’ve clicked through everything?

It’s difficult to know when you’ve seen every video game character included since they are matched randomly and there are so many possible match-ups. Playing till you vote for all your favorite characters or ensuring that certain characters don’t get in the winner’s circle are different options you can take with Face-Off. By deciding the winner throughout all these matchups, you’re ensuring that your favorite video game characters will have a fighting chance to make it through to the finals.

Which video game characters have you included?

The list of video game characters has been decided by the staff in addition to suggestions from the IGN audience via social media. There are so many video game characters so we ensured that we had a good variety of characters across all the different types of games ever made.

How is this tracked?

Every time a winner is decided between the pairs, those winners tally a win improving their overall win-loss record. When the Face-Off results are in, the video game characters with the better win-loss records will move on to the next stage of the competition. So if you continue to keep voting for your top video game characters, they’ll have a better chance of making it to top cut. You can vote as many times as you want till the Face-Off closes.

The NBA's format change, where the winner had to score 24 more points (in honor of Kobe Bryant) in the fourth quarter than the leading score of the third, led to one of the best finishes to an All-Star Game in recent memory. The intensity was perhaps best defined by Giannis Antetokounmpo guarding fellow All-Star captain and namesake LeBron James in isolation.

Lucasfilm Initially Wanted Respawn’s Star Wars Game To Avoid Jedi and Lightsabers

Lucasfilm originally wanted Respawn to stick to blasters and make a first-person shooter, according to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Director Stig Asmussen.

In the latest episode of IGN Unfiltered, Ryan McCaffrey sat down with Asmussen to talk about Respawn’s pitch for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and, according to Asmussen, he was very clear about what he and his team wanted to do when he first met with Lucasfilm.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/12/17/how-stig-built-god-of-war-and-star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-ign-unfiltered-47″]

“‘We want to make a game with Jedi and lightsabers and Force powers.’ and I could feel that the room kind of gasped for a moment. That’s when I realized; Jedi are really big… I mean, of course they are a big deal… but it’s a really big deal. It’s like the Holy Grail here.” Asmussen also discussed Lucasfilm’s reverence for Jedi in the latest episode of the AIAS Game Maker’s podcast, when he sat down with Insomniac’s Ted Price.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”legacyId=20096150&captions=true”]

“There was a little bit of people eye-balling each other and somebody, I don’t remember who, on the Lucasfilm side said, ‘What about making a game with blasters? Something more like a shooter?’ They didn’t mention any games in particular and I said, ‘You know, part of my background is melee and the team that we built is melee-action… I think you wouldn’t be really happy with the results of what we’d make for that, because I’m not super comfortable with doing that.’ And I said, ‘but, you know… lightsabers.’”

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/11/15/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-review”]

That was far from the end of the discussion, Asmussen said. “They talked a little bit more about it, and we went back and forth and they said, ‘Here’s the deal; we can do something with lightsabers and Force powers, but we can’t… we can’t talk about Jedi. We’ve got to refer to them as “Force-users.”’” Asmussen shrugged, “As long as we’ve got lightsabers and Force-powers, I’m cool.”

“That’s the day that I learned; every step of the way, we have to earn it. We can’t just come in and say, ‘This is the game that we’re making.’ It’s gotta be a conversation. It’s gotta be a collaboration, and we have to earn the respect, and that works both ways. But here we are, years later, and the name of the game is ‘Jedi: Fallen Order.’”

Steam makes it easier to find and download game soundtracks

Steam makes it easier to find and download game soundtracksSteam's approach to game soundtracks has been broken, to put it mildly. It's been treated as downloadable content for its associated game, forcing you to buy the game in question — and you could forget about having an easy way to manage your collection. Valve is thankfully fixing that experience. It's introducing a "soundtrack" app type that lets you buy soundtracks whether or not you own the core game, manage them in your Steam library and place them in a central music folder instead of scattering them across multiple game directories. Developers can even sell soundtracks when the game isn't available on Steam. In theory, a creator with an Epic Games Store exclusive could still peddle the soundtrack.

The two-year-old also reportedly suffered a skull fracture from the ball, hit off the bat of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora at Minute Maid Park. She reportedly still continues to receive anti-seizure medication, with the brain injury's impact on her central nervous system described by doctors as equivalent to a stroke.

PARIS — Kim Jones is hitting Miami with his Dior pre-fall men’s collection as the city gears up for Art Basel Miami Beach, a highlight of the year for artists and collectors. But the designer is breaking with recent tradition by collaborating not with a fine artist, but a man equally famous for his distinctive penmanship: Shawn Stussy.
The founder of the Stüssy brand, whose signature first appeared on his handcrafted surfboards before becoming one of the world’s most recognizable clothing logos, has been largely absent from the fashion scene since leaving the brand in 1996, with the exception of a brief return under the S/Double label a few years ago.
But Jones, a fan since his teenage years, had no trouble coaxing the streetwear pioneer out of retirement.
“There wasn’t much luring,” Stussy said at Dior’s headquarters in Paris. “I was just in a good place in my adventure, and he’s in a good place, and the stars just seemed to kind of line up. And if I’m going to come out for a last hurrah, why not with Dior? That’s the way I look at it. It’s the very top of the top. I have nothing but respect.”
