VGAs: The Walking Dead wins game of the year

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. 

 
Dark Souls II
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

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

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.

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 imagine the convers...

This Hitman: Absolution trailer is coming for you

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...

Spike VGA game of the year: Skyrim

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 staff, led by Game ...
