Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards will be back this December

Remember The Game Awards, the Geoff Keighley joint production not to be confused with the train wreck that was the VGAs aka VGXs? Well last year's show must have gone well enough to warrant another this year as it was announced in...   read

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

These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards

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 stuff is not goin...   read
