PSA: VGA Award Winners

December 10, 2012 -

If you didn't catch the Spike TV VGA's on Friday then you probably didn't notice that Telltale Games' episodic The Walking Dead game won quite a few awards including Game of the Year, Best Adapted Video Game, Best Downloadable Game, and Best Performance By a Human Female - Melissa Hutchison as Clementine. Telltale also won the Studio of the Year Award.

Journey picked up the Best PS3 Game, Best Independent Game, and Best Original Score; Borderlands 2 won awards for Best Shooter, Best Multiplayer Game, Best Performance By a Human Male - Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack, and Character of the Year for Claptrap.

Re: PSA: VGA Award Winners

Only thing that interested me in this whole affair was the MGSV trailer.  Looks way better than that Bayonetta Gear Rising: ReVanquish crap.

Re: PSA: VGA Award Winners

Walking dead is the most broken popular game. These are the idiot awards....

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Apparently a lot of people disagree.

Walking Dead - I mentioned this on the last podcast but I'm not really digging the game.

Journey - I'd really like to play this game to see how it's not boring as hell.
