These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards


Troy Baker is the new Nolan North
Nov 18
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... read

999 on iOS

999 on iOS lacks any actual gameplay


Inferior version confirmed
May 29
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... read

Conception: Please Have My Baby sequel has waifus aplenty


So kawaii!
Apr 28
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... read
Proactive portables
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 b... read feature

Here are all the Spike VGA winners


Because it was easy to miss them during the show
Dec 07
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 ... read

By the way, the game is out RIGHT NOW

I've got Bracelet Points and sh*t on the brain. read
Kame-Hame-Hoo-Boy
It seemed like a good idea at the time: Take the popular Dragon Ball Z fighting games and put them in first person perspective with Kinect controls, allowing players to punch, kick, and Kamehameha their way through the series' popular battles, allowing players to be immersed in the Dragon Ball world like never before. Wait... Kinect? No, I was wrong. That doesn't seem like a good idea at all. read feature
