How to Watch The Golden Joystick Awards 2017

By Rebecca Smith, 27 days ago
On Friday, the 35th Golden Joystick Awards will take place at the Bloomsbury Big Top in London. The best games from the past 12 months get to take away awards across a variety of categories, the winners being selected by public vote. If, like me, you don't have a ticket to go to the show, you can choose to watch the awards on the Golden Joysticks' official Twitch channel. If you're unable to stream the event, Rich will be at the awards and will bring you all the winners via the TrueAchievements Twitter feed. The awards show begins at at 3.15pm GMT/7.15am PST/10.15am EST.
