Awesome Indies Showcase Hosts
Tom is IGN’s resident Indie Expert, and if you’ve made a gaming purchase based on an IGN review, there’s a solid chance it was his opinion you were agreeing with. As a core editorial voice, he’ll bring the freshest and hardest facts to our Awesome Indies Showcase to make sure we leave no independent gaming stone unturned!
Michael may be new to IGN, but he’s a 15-year veteran of INTERNET and the Webby Award-winning host of hit series like Does Not Compute and Cracked’s After Hours. Now he’s bringing his unique style to gamescom! He’ll be co-hosting the Awesome Indies Showcase, a celebration of all things Indie, as well as hosting his own talk/variety show full of fun and surprises, gamescom Daily!
Brian co-hosts IGN’s hit nerdcore comedy series Up At Noon, as well as the hilarious A.I.-Generated News. He’s a fan of games off the beaten path, Brooklyn pizza by the slice, and baseball caps tilted playfully askew. Also video games! He’ll be in rotation on the livestream, as well as co-hosting our Awesome Indies Showcase.
