I had to outsource this headline to Steven
Dec 05
Geoff Keighley's not-affiliated-with-Spike Game Awards are tonight. Gosh, it really has been a year since he co-hosted VGX with Joel McHale. (Let us never speak of that again.) The show will be streamed live out of Las Vegas... read

Move over Spike, there's a new (Dew-free?) Game Awards


No more Doritos and Mountain Dew
Nov 10
Max and I had fun last year getting drunk and making fun of the Spike "VGX" at a slightly slower rate than its own co-host, Joel McHale, tore into it.  Former VGX producer Geoff Keighley is now putting his weight behind ... read

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt keeps looking better and better


One man returns to kill everything... well mostly everything
Dec 08
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... read

Grand Theft Auto V takes Game of the Year
Dec 08
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... read

Troy Baker is the new Nolan North

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

Spike VGAs renamed 'VGX', happening December 7


Ooooh, mysterious!
Nov 15
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... read

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... read

Here are all the Spike VGA winners


Because it was easy to miss them during the show

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

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

VGAs: Journey wins three awards tonight


...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

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


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.

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 ... read

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
