When the Muppets showed up at The Game Awards 2019, it sort of made sense. Disney is a big presence in the world, Muppets are still kind of relevant, and it was a good opportunity to brandish a goose puppet. Now it seems like Geoff Keighley just really has an interest in televised puppets. I cannot believe I am typing these words, dear readers. But this is a thing that is happening on Monday. Summer Game Fest will be running a stream, and a “special tech correspondent” will be there. It’s Alf. Alf is the special tech correspondent. Alf.
Monday, we're happy to welcome ALF as our special tech correspondent for #SummerGameFest. Tune in live at 11 am ET / 8 am PT at https://t.co/Hp7WuLrjXk to see his first segment as part of the Developer Showcase. pic.twitter.com/5v0ENDhpw1

The Summer Game Fest Alf stream will air on Monday, June 22, 2020 at 8am PT/11am ET. It’s a good thing that the current rumor (based on leaks and other silly hinting) is that we’ll be seeing a new Crash Bandicoot announcement, because that’s a great opportunity to make some jokes about eating cats, probably.
This closing paragraph could be a chance to crack wise about what the heck a 90s sitcom puppet has to do with video games. Unfortunately for you all you’re dealing with me, and I know enough about this to drop something painfully relevant here instead:
Sweet dreams, folks.
