VGAs

From Software is sticking with current-gen for this adventure
Despite the success of its predecessor, I was not necessarily expecting a Dark Souls II so soon, and I certainly wasn't expecting to see it get announced at the 2012 Spike VGAs of all places. Amazing! I was actually convinced... read feature

...so far
Dec 07
Best Independent Game, Best PS3 Game, Best Original Score. And if you ask me, they should also win Game of the Year. Three awards so far from VGA 2012. Congrats to all the folks behind Journey. You deserve these awards and more.  If you haven't played Journey yet, don't talk to me.  Hey, even Jim liked it. read

May 7, 2013
Dec 07
May 7, 2013. That's the official release date for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. That's one hell of a long wait, but I'm pretty sure it'll be worth it. Wait for a bit for the VGA trailer release. These screens show hold you over. Damn.  read

HOLY GIANT WHALE: The Phantom Pain announced at VGA 2012


WOW.
Dec 07

Tekken tags up a Tournament 2 teaser trailer


Dec 10
If you picked up Tekken Hybrid last week, you've likely been playing the demo for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It's kind of a big deal.  The new trailer showcases some of that beautiful tag action, then brings hopes back down with the promise of a Holiday 2012 release. Keep playing that demo guys, you've got a year.  read

This Hitman: Absolution trailer is coming for you


Dec 10
It's been a long time coming for Hitman: Absolution. This trailer for the game doesn't do much other than remind us that Agent 47 is very skilled at his job, but that's okay. The modern visual fidelity alone makes up for any perceived lack of substance shown here. Note to would-be bad guys: waiting for your target to leave the elevator never works. read

Wow: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer


Dec 10
Slo-mo, dark, slick and dramatic as f*ck, here's your debut trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, fresh from tonight's Spike VGA show. Explosions, bashing, transformations and fire breathing? So far, this is easily the best trailer of the night. Who's down for the Fall of Cybertron? read

The Amazing Spider-Man's VGA trailer


Dec 10
As the avalanche of new and exclusive trailers continues to roll down from Mt. VGA, we have a look at The Amazing Spider-Man which you can enjoy. It's Spider-Man, doing what a spider can, which apparently involves giant robots. Everybody loves fighting giant robots, right? A reboot of a licensed game series, the source material itself a reboot. It's like those Russian dolls. read

Dec 10
We don't know much from this Spike VGA reveal. Command & Conquer Generals 2 is the rumored new title from BioWare, and it's something that's pretty different coming from them.
