The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt keeps looking better and better

CD Projekt RED's open-world expedition, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is easily at the top of my most anticipated games of 2014 list (sorry Titan Fall) and the latest trailer shown off during last night's VGX show only has me ev...

Here are your VGX 2013 award winners

Another year, another VGA's... err excuse me, I mean VGX award show. This year's show switched up the format, but for the most part delivered the same experience. I was only able to catch a little bit of the show, but I did e...

The 2013 SpikeTV VGX Awards Drunken Reaction Livestream photo
The 2013 SpikeTV VGX Awards Drunken Reaction Livestream
by Max Scoville

[Update 2: It's all over! We had a blast, and thank you for tuning in. If you missed it, I'm gonna try to get an archive up. Unfortunately, we had the cameras rolling several hours before we were live, and the entire setup got recorded. Normally it's easy to trim this out, but that's only allowed on videos two hours or less. In the meantime, here's DMX on a horse.]

As I imagine you've heard, tomorrow is SpikeTV's 2013 "VGX" Awards Show and I'd like to invite you to join myself, Steven Hansen, and Ben Pack as we remotely heckle presenters, critique the amount of dubstep in new game trailers, and fondly remember the time Geoff Keighley's Twitter account was apparently hacked and he kept Tweeting about giraffes. 

As tomorrow is a Saturday, we shall be drunk. In addition to that, I have a stack of download codes to give away courtesy of Midnight City for their new games Slender: The Arrival, The Bridge, and Blood of the Werewolf. [Update: we also have codes for Hotline Miami, Shadow Warrior, Gomo, Final Exam, and the Crusader Kings 2: Sons of Abraham expansion pack]

All this happens at 3-6PM Pacific Time (-8:00 GMT) on our YouTube channel.

Be there, or uh, go do something more productive instead.

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...

Watch Podtoid's live Spike VGA commentary if you want!

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 ...

Dark Souls II announced for PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 photo
Dark Souls II announced for PS3, PC, and Xbox 360
by Jordan Devore

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 the trailer was for the next Dragon Age.

Namco Bandai has made the announcement as well, confirming that this game is for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Souls series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki will serve as supervisor, while From Software's Tomohiro Shibuya will be the director. There's promise of a new hero, storyline, and world, plus "a revamped server-based multiplayer mode that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing with others," according to the press release.

"We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series," said Shibuya. "The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our dark journey."

My body is ready, praise the sun, etc.
