These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards


Troy Baker is the new Nolan North

// Jordan Devore
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


Ooooh, mysterious!
Nov 15
// Brett Makedonski
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...

On Friday night, the cool kids were watching their Spike VGAs with live commentary from the Podtoid gang -- Jim Sterling (me!), Conrad Zimmerman, (mustache!), and Jonathan Holmes (posterior!).  It's not quite as cool to...

Here are all the Spike VGA winners


Because it was easy to miss them during the show
Dec 07
// Conrad Zimmerman
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 ...

VGAs: The Walking Dead wins game of the year


Telltale sweeps tonight's awards
Dec 07
// Dale North
Congrats to Telltale Games for the well-deserved award for Game of the Year for The Walking Dead. They also won Studio of the Year, Best Performance by a Human Female Best Downloadable Game, and Best Adaptation. What a night for them.

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...

The clues are being put together fast
We're in for a whale of a troll. Follow the NeoGAF thread as they break down all the clues. Check this out. And this. Freelancer @AlexRubens has spotted people in the VIP section of the Konami party wearing Phantom Pain/Moby Dick Studios t-shirts. And here's a picture of the shirts in question.

VGAs: Journey wins three awards tonight


...so far
Dec 07
// Dale North
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.

VGAs: The Last of Us looks beautiful, gets dated May 7


May 7, 2013
Dec 07
// Dale North
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.

HOLY GIANT WHALE: The Phantom Pain announced at VGA 2012


WOW.
Dec 07
// Dale North
100 percent gameplay was shown in a debut trailer shown tonight during the 2012 VGA broadcast. A doctor speaks to someone waking from a coma. Someone with a hook for a hand. A soldier. He can't move well, but is being guided ...

Office Chat: Revengeance wins best made-up word


Dec 13

Obviously, we at Destructoid were all forced to watch the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards show this weekend. Shackled to our computers, driven by cruel taskmasters, we had no option but to witness it. In this casual chat from o...

Ravens RB Ray Rice voted onto NFL Blitz digital 'cover'

If there's a marketing opportunity to be exploited, you can bet that Spike and the producers of the network's annual Video Game Awards will be there to take advantage of it -- no matter how absurd it may seem. I can just imag...

Happy Monday, Destructoid! In the event that you were too busy huffing ether to pay attention to the Spike TV VGA's this weekend, Max and I have managed to condense the only important parts (i.e., the trailers) into a simple...

Tonight, the Spike Video Game Awards ceremony was broadcast live, packed full of new trailers, game announcements and wretched, pandering humor. We caught the intriguing trailer for The Last of Us. We watched Miyamoto sm...

You've likely seen the reveal trailer for Command & Conquer Generals 2 by now, so let's talk about the first details and screenshots. Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine, this one is coming to PC in 2013 by way of BioWare V...

Tekken tags up a Tournament 2 teaser trailer


Dec 10
// Liam Fisher
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.

This Hitman: Absolution trailer is coming for you


Dec 10
// Jordan Devore
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.

Spike VGA game of the year: Skyrim


Dec 10
// Dale North
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards Game of the Year. I knew it. I won't tell you what I chose as a Spike Video Game Awards panelist judge, but I bet you could guess.  It was a shame that the staf...

Diablo III intro cinematic is dramatic as hell


Dec 10
// Liam Fisher
In conjunction with their being named "Gamer God," Blizzard unveiled the full, official intro cinematic for Diablo III. It's dark and full of lore. I've loved the beta, and this trailer has me pumped for the game's release early next year.  I know you're all excited, I won't even ask.

Revengeance. Hideo Kojima showed up to the Spike VGA awards to present his newest game. He flubbed up a bit with some nervous English during his presentation, but finally was able to offer up the first look at the new M...

Fortnite, Epic Games' cute zombie game

Zombies have been done to death (pun intended), but have we done cute zombies yet? Don't answer that. Still, Epic is trying something a bit less uptight and more fun with upcoming game Fortnite.  Even though it seemed t...

Wow: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer


Dec 10
// Dale North
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?

Rainbow 6: Patriots trailer hits pretty close to home


Dec 10
// Liam Fisher
Ubisoft is taking the Rainbow 6 franchise to some more familiar territory in Patriots with Americans rising up against perceived evil. The new trailer pulls all the right strings and shows just how far some people could go.

The Amazing Spider-Man's VGA trailer


Dec 10
// Conrad Zimmerman
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.

Get ready for Alan Wake's American Nightmare


Dec 10
// Liam Fisher
It looks like Alan Wake's next outing is taking a turn for the... well, sh*t's gone crazy. Alan Wake's American Nightmare  finds our literary hero pitted against his doppelganger Mr. Scratch to keep the world from going to hell.  Consider me intrigued.

BioWare's new game is Command & Conquer Generals 2


Dec 10
// Dale North
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. Military world footage wasn't much to talk about. Are you excited about this? Are you excited about RTS from RPG people?

That's so funny. Just the other day I was saying that Tony Hawk was best with the first two titles. The teased Tony Hawk game was revealed in a red carpet segment during the Spike VGA preshow. It is called Tony Hawk Pro Skat...
