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...

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...

Watch Podtoid's live Spike VGA commentary if you want!

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 watch it right...

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...

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...

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.

HOLY GIANT WHALE: The Phantom Pain announced at VGA 2012

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 by another pati...

Ravens RB Ray Rice voted onto NFL Blitz digital 'cover'

If there's a marketing opportunity to be exploited, you can bet that Spike and the producers of the network's annual Video Game Awards will be there to take advantage of it -- no matter how absurd it may seem. I can just imagine the convers...

This Hitman: Absolution trailer is coming for you

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...

Spike VGA game of the year: Skyrim

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards Game of the Year. I knew it. I won't tell you what I chose as a Spike Video Game Awards panelist judge, but I bet you could guess.  It was a shame that the staff, led by Game ...
