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

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 a new awards sh...   read

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt keeps looking better and better

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 even more hyped. ...   read

Here are your VGX 2013 award winners

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 enjoy watching J...   read

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

Spike VGAs renamed 'VGX', happening December 7

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 time 'round. The...   read

Here are all the Spike VGA winners

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 few games won i...   read

Dark Souls II announced for PS3, PC, and Xbox 360

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 the trailer wa...   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.    read
