Watch the gaming BAFTAs this evening


3:45 PM on 03.16.2012



Today is special for two obvious reasons. Both Niero and Destructoid are a day older, two pretty solid reasons for drinking and general joviality. So I sort of feel a little bit sorry for the British Academy Video Game Awards -- the gaming BAFTAs -- which also happen tonight. That's just poor planning, BAFTA.

Irish comedian Dara O Briain is hosting the show, so at the very least it should be funny and relevant to gaming. There's a diverse list of nominees such as Deux Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Rift, From Dust and F1 2011 just to name a few. Voice actors are getting their share of the recognition too, with Stephen Fry and Mark Hamill amongst others up for the performer award.

The category I'm most interested in is the GAME Award of 2011, as it's the only one voted for by the public. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Minecraft snatches that one. Note that the entire event is sponsored by GAME, this will be the first occasion in some time where the company hasn't been mentioned due to its imminent demise. You can watch the whole thing on the live stream here.
