gamescom: Best of Show
IGN closed out this massive gaming show with the ultimate Best of Show Special, a series of looks back to the greatest games, highlights, guests, and events at gamescom -- from surprises on Opening Night Live, epic game reveals, influencer appearances, and more.
Hosts Sydnee Goodman and Akeem Lawanson and Daemon Hatfield, guided viewers through their favorite segments, interviews, games, giveaways, influencers, and moments from the week.
It all culminated in the gamescom Awards, where winners talked about their extraordinary accomplishments, and for the first time ever, the most creative costume designers on earth took center stage at gamescom’s official Cosplay Competition, hosted by IGN’s Miranda Sanchez.
gamescom: Best Of Show Hosts
Sydnee hosts The Daily Fix and is a constant fixture of IGN’s top-tier and red carpet coverage. Along with Max, Brian and Daemon, Syd will bring her own brand of cutting-edge news and big personality to all parts of the livestream, and add an air of luxury to the Best-Of-Show and gamescom Awards. Upgrade!
Daemon is IGN’s host-among-hosts, anchoring Game Scoop!, Next Gen Console Watch 2020, News Games and More, and more! He’ll employ his formidable presence to keep the hype train on track with the latest gamescom news and analysis minute-by-minute as part of the gamescom Live team, and help Syd and Akeem anchor the gamescom Awards.
Akeem is a lifelong anime fan and would honestly make a great anime character. He’ll bring his signature energy and quiver of wacky voices to bear as we shower our gamescom Awards winners with praise and trophies.
There’s no-one better suited to host our Cosplay segments than Miranda, who’s logged plenty of time behind the stitches of a commissioned costume, or built herself when the anime or gaming character she had her eye on wasn’t readily available. She’ll bring her keen judgment and genuine love of cosplay to lavish on our honorees.
