Bethesda will not show anything new at VGX

Looks like we got our first disappointment of the week. With the VGX awards only two days away, the anticipation for what new titles are going to be revealed is reaching fever pitch. Unfortunately, we just got a confirmation ...

These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards

I wasn't so sure about the Spike VGAs being rebranded as VGX, but then I came to my senses and realized such things really don't matter. Some of you will argue that the show's awards don't matter, either. At any rate, this st...

Spike VGAs renamed 'VGX', happening December 7

The annual Spike Video Game Awards are set to take place this year, but they're undergoing a bit of a facelift. Instead of the moniker "VGAs" that we've known the awards show as for years, it's being rebranded as "VGX" this t...

Attack on Titan 3DS game gets cool teaser, screens

The anime that's sweeping people I know (most of them through the internet) by storm is also getting a 3DS game courtesy of Spike Chunsoft. Given its wild popularity, a game based on the anime wherein teens fight Titans was ...

Attack on Titan anime gets a proper 3DS game

If you're into watching anime, you may know that Attack on Titan is the new hotness this season. The story of a bunch of angry kids chopping up funny-faced giants while using weird Spider-Man grappling hooks has captured...

999 on iOS lacks any actual gameplay

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors was without question my favorite game of 2010. The sequel, Virtue's Last Reward, was pretty great as well, but the original was simply without equal. I recommend it to anyone I can, h...

Conception: Please Have My Baby sequel has waifus aplenty

Despite Spike Chunsoft showing some interest in bringing Conception 2 to western shores, it seems doubtful this Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita game will ever manage to escape from Japan. A bizarre dungeon crawler...

Remember Conception? Yeah, that PSP dungeon crawler where the protagonist must save the world by having magical children with a dozen celestial maidens. Well, it's getting a sequel and publisher Spike Chunsoft seems keen on bringing the title west.

Conception 2 is coming to Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita this summer in Japan. There's no confirmation of a western release just yet, but Spike is gauging interest so at least it's a possibility. The premise sounds hilariously absurd and Lord knows Sony's portable is in dire need of software. Let's all start bugging Atlus, XSEED, and Aksys and make this thing happen.

Whoa. Castlevania in modern times? What did I miss? I really need to get Lords of Shadow out of my backlog in preparation for the sequel. This brief trailer for the game was broadcast during the 2012 Spike VGAs, showing a ve...

Here are all the Spike VGA winners

Did you find there to be a noticeable lack of "A" in the broadcast of the 2012 Spike VGAs tonight? By my count, we had somewhere in the neighborhood of half a dozen actual awards given out during the two-hour presentation. A ...
