Spike VGAs

The Spike Video Game Awards Site now offers the results of this year's VGAs, which were handed out last night. The Walking Dead: The Game walked off with the game of the year for studio of the year Telltale Games. Though that game came out for PCs, the PC game of the year us XCOM: Enemy Unknown, while Borderlands 2 won for best shooter and Dishonored stole off with best action/adventure honors. Best indie of the year went to Journey, and most anticipated is Grand Theft Auto V.

Couldn't care less about the awards, but I did pick up about 5 more golden keys from the Gearbox twitter posts after BL2 won a few categories.
Yep, me too!

it's basically confirmed that Phantom Pain is a Metal Gear game

the developer's CEO is named Joakim, which is an anagram for Kojima
Colonel Volgin appears in the trailer, he's from MGS3
Big Boss has the same scar in the trailer as he does in the Zeroes game
David Hayter has basically Tweeted that he's in the game

I found the entire thing on Gametrailers, just broken up into segments naturally. And Jackson was awesome as host, as usual (this is the 3rd or 4th time he's hosted them btw) but some of the skits/jokes felt a bit to forced and fell flat as a result.
Ah thanks! http://www.gametrailers.com/video-game-awards/watch ...

Is there a full episode of this online? Last year's 2011 was online for everyone for free and legally. It's not there anymore. I can't find 2012's.

How was Samuel Jackson as the host?

People might just want to be seeing what they want to see, of course.


That's entirely possible. I thought the same thing, but I have to admit the gif/logo thing seems a little hard to ignore.

What the hell was that game, The Phantom Pain, about? I'm very surprised European developers are somehow managing to get their new IPs shown on this show now. Will we see be seeing Painkiller next? lol

The phantom pain is rumored to be a new metal gear title, so if that is true, it's far from a new IP

Who says that? I doubt it is a new MGS game... didn't look that good.


Check out the lettering in the gif at the bottom:

Yeah, that was one of the things that lead people to believe its a new MGS game, and the guy at the end kinda looks like solid snake. People might just want to be seeing what they want to see, of course. People who care way more than I have started writing things up about it.

That list actually looks legit to me, if it was payed then it would be all Diablo 3 GOY PC, Blops2 GOY etc etc

It's obvious that they are trying to placate the gamer hipster crowd that mocks them every year. Hyping The Walking Dead the way they did and throwing an indie award out there were just two layers of icing on that thick cake they were baking for the elitist crowd.

It probably worked too, since a lot of the friends I saw last year bad mouthing the VGAs were now raving about them.

I still find it deplorable.

The awards themselves are pretty good. They've had that indie games category since 2010. A Call of Duty game has never won Game of the Year, only really competing in Best Shooter and Best Multiplayer.

However, the show itself sucks. Imagine the Oscars if they only announced 6 awards and aimed themselves at 18-35 male gamers.

Maybe they just hired some people who have a clue? I know it's Spike but... it's kind of possible.

I haven't had cable TV in a long while now - are the Spike VGA awards still as embarrassingly awful as they used to be or have they gotten any better?

Really? You have to ask?

Well the fact that Call of Duty didn't win anything hints at the possibility that things may have changed - they used to wet themselves over that series. I remember them giving one of the CoD games an award before it had even been released.
