A new video game lets you fight as 2020 election frontrunners

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is the star of an upcoming video game featuring the frontrunners of the 2020 election — "Yang2020: Path To Presidency." The game will let the 2020 candidates fight for the presidency, with a fictional story mode charting Yang's path to office.

Though fighting games are inherently violent, the recreations of the candidates in "Yang2020: Path To Presidency" are obvious parodies performing cartoonish attacks. Players will be able to unlock Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and other characters, each with their own ridiculous set of special attacks.

This highly anticipated PlayStation 4 game is confusing critics

Kojima Production's "Death Stranding" has all the makings of a video game blockbuster. It's an experience three years in the making, the product of a visionary director launching a new franchise from an independent studio.

But after three years of mounting anticipation, it's still not totally clear what players can expect from "Death Stranding." Sony gave critics an early chance to dive in and see what "Death Stranding" is about, and the reviews have brought back rather mixed opinions.

There's no question "Death Stranding" is a clear departure from Director Hideo Kojima's last game, "Metal Gear Solid V." While "Metal Gear Solid" is a military-focused franchise starring a super soldier, "Death Stranding" puts you in control of a lone deliveryman in a desolate, post-apocalyptic that's wide open for exploration.
