Danny Wallace Hosting Golden Joystick Awards

The Golden Joystick Awards, one of the biggest events of the video games calendar, returns for its 35th year with Danny Wallace once again at the helm.

With the ceremony set for November 17th in London’s Bloomsbury Big Top, The Golden Joysticks is the biggest publicly-voted video game award show, allowing you to decide which games get the all important votes.

If you’re looking to have your say, there are some key dates to watch out for. The shortlists are released on September 21, marking the start of the voting period. Voting will then end on November 3, before the unveiling of the winners on November 17. If you want to see your favorite game get the honors, make sure to get your votes in!

Hosted by Danny Wallace – comedian, writer and video game voice actor (you might remember him as Mr. Sarcastic himself, Shaun Hastings in the Assassin’s Creed series), the Golden Joysticks features over 25 award categories including ‘Best Multiplayer Game’, ‘Game of the Year’ and ‘Most Wanted Game’.

Wallace commented on being invited back, “I’m delighted to return to host the legendary Golden Joysticks, and to find out what the gamers themselves think are deserving of the industry’s most undeniably golden awards.”

With the event first held in 1983, it has since grown to become a massive part of the video game community. Dan Dawkins, Global Editor In-Chief of GamesRadar+ agrees.

“For 35 years the Golden Joystick Awards have been celebrating the very best of video games. Whether they’re highlighting the brilliance of the games themselves, the creatives who make them or the communities and personalities who play them, the Golden Joysticks have always been a wonderful reminder of the passion and excellence inherent in our industry”. 

Last year, the winners included Dark Souls 3 (Ultimate Game of the Year) and Overwatch (Best Original Game and Best Multiplayer Game) amongst many more which can be found here.

If you want to get involved in the voting, check back here on September 21st and we’ll give you the low down. What titles will you be voting for?

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
