The great Abraham Lincoln said it best: “Video games are awesome, and I wish I could talk about them every day.” Each week on Kotaku Splitscreen, game journalists Jason Schreier and Kirk Hamilton try to make President Lincoln’s dream a reality. Joined by a variety of guests from the world of games and beyond, the two hosts discuss, dissect, and occasionally disagree about the state of gaming in this modern age. Esports drama, Reddit backlash, media gossip and the latest big games all get equal play, along with occasional peeks behind the curtain at how video games are made. This panel will consist of a live recording of an episode of Splitscreen, along with audience Q&A and maybe even a special guest.
