Spike VGA awards are on tonight. They are the video game equivalent of the MTV movies awards Expect to see a lot of celeberity appearencs, not many acceptance speeches, lots of pornstar and penis jokes, and quite a lot of embarrassing behavior in general.

But that's not why we watch them. We watch them for the exclusive reveals and the show has always delivered in this regard. Over the last three years, we have seen Skryim, Mass Effect 3 and The Last of Us revealed. What will we get this year?

I am hoping to see the following games tonight:

1) Castlevania - Lords of Shadow 2 - Confirmed to be on the show. After hating my first playthrough of LOS1, I came around to love the game and cant wait to play the sequel. I really hope they have you fight thousands of enemies like in the E3 teaser.

2) Gears of War - Judgement. - Confirmed to be on the show. So far no story trailer has been released for a game thats set to be out in Spring. I really really liked Bulletstorm so I hope People Can Fly pump new life into the series. Really hope that the SP doesnt follow the same formula.

3) God of War Acsension - Not Confirmed, but I hope we finally get to see a single player campaign trailer. Not sure wtf Sony's doing with the advertising of this game, we dont even know why this game is being made.

4) The Last of US - Confirmed to be on the show. We still haven't seen a proper trailer, so let's hope we get that here. Loved the Uncharted trailers, let's hope we get a nice 2:30 minute trailer.

5) Beyond - Not confirmed. I need to see more of this game.

6) Some mind blowing next gen reveal like Star War 1313 or Watchdogs. Or even MGS Ground Zeroes, but probably wont happen.

Here are some other games confirmed to be on the show:

VGA TEN will also feature highly anticipated world premieres from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (Konami), BioShock Infinite (2K Games), Tomb Raider (Square Enix), Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington (Ubisoft), Halo 4: Spartan Ops (Microsoft Studios) and more.

I would much rather wait until tomorrow to watch any trailers for games I'm interested in so I don't have to suffer through a bunch of F-list celebrities acting like children
#3 Posted by The-Gamer (109 posts) -

I'm really hoping for a new Ground Zeroes trailer. Kojima is in LA at the moment (for a Rising press event).

I'm not going to watch the actual awards (I'm quite fond of keeping all my brain cells), but I'd like to see what Sucker-Punch and Rocksteady are working on.

#5 Posted by CRS98 (9036 posts) -

I have a prediction.

"This years nominees for Shooter of the Year:

Max Payne 3

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Far Cry 3

And the winner is...

[spoiler] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2!" [/spoiler]

Also hoping for more GTA V details.

Awesome. I love watching the VGA's. Definitely can't wait to see Gears of War Judgement and Lords of Shadow 2. Should be a great show. :D

This show only amplifies the horrible stereotypes associated with gaming.
#12 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

Geoff Keighley pretty much confirmed on Twitter that Bungie's project "Destiny" would be revealed at the show.

This. I would just wait for the trailers to go up an hour after they air rather than give them any more undeserved ratings.

Was going to post this. Destiny is the next gen game to be shown. Please be gameplay!
#15 Posted by dvader654 (44751 posts) -
Oops well Bungie just said they are not in the show. So forget that. The spot is wide open, it can be anything! Crazy prediction time! Half-life 3... I can dream.

What time do they start? The UK is finally getting to watch them live this year on Xbox LIVE, but we also have the mid-season finale of TWD S3 at 10pm and I don't wanna miss it.
#17 Posted by ShadowMoses900 (17081 posts) -

God of War Acension, The Last of Us, and Beyond are the reasons why I'm watching this. I hope we see more of GTA5 as well.

I'm recording it because I have to take my oldest to a girl scout meeting tonight. When I get home I'll decide if I want to watch the whole recording or just read you guy's reactions and skip to the fun sounding bits.

Exactly what I thought when I read the reveals. Duh, where are RPG's, Racing Games, Indy Titles and the like? Horrible, seems like they just go by popularity and hype of a franchise, not by quality and what the game is about or great stories told in video games. :/

Awww man. That sucks. :( They're killing me with how long they're taking on showing anything on this game. Oh well can't wait to see what else shows up. Only 4 hours away until show time. :D
#22 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

5 minutes until show... Geoff Keighley just said a "familiar" franchise will be coming back tonight. Also just said there will be something "cryptic" shown. Whatever that means.

#23 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

I hate Sam Jackson.

#24 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

South Park looks really good. I think it's a 2D sidescrolling RPG.

#25 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

Borderlands 2 shooter of the year... not a bad choice IMO.

The Phantom Pain?

#28 Posted by GalvatronType_R (1926 posts) -

I wish the VGAs would take themselves more seriously, i.e., less swearing, music from bands that we'll never hear again in 6 months, C list celebrities who didn't make Dancing With the Stars trying to revitalize their careers by introducing games, etc. Fat chance.

Prediction for the next trailer reveal: Big Rigs 2.

#29 Posted by Archangel3371 (16215 posts) -
Excellent show so far. Samuel Jackson is the motherfvckin' man. South Park stuff was hilarious and Phantom Pain looks wicked.

They usually have good picks. I have never been disappointed with their awards, just the presentation.

I missed the last 20 minutes. Was anything shown after the south park preview?

Trailer from a game called "The Phantom Pain". Hard to really describe accurately. Got a Kojima-ish vibe from it though for sure. Seems like a military themed game with supernatural elements - one scene in the trailer showed a flaming whale swallow a helicopter.

Edit: Found the trailer.

#32 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Thanks Variety!

I must say that orchestra was pretty freaking awesome. The production values of this show are insane. That blonde was phenomenal as well. I picked the wrong major, I should've been a music major.

#33 Posted by Archangel3371 (16215 posts) -
That orchestra montage was pretty awesome and from now on I will only play my games on Sam Jackson mode. :lol:
#34 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

The Phantom Pain looked like a MGS Spinoff. Was that Solid Snake at the end? Was it Grey Fox who got burned alive?

#35 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

The Last of Us. Here we go.

#36 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

May 7th. I will be there.

#37 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

The Last of Us looks really promising.

#38 Posted by Archangel3371 (16215 posts) -
Oh man those were two kickass trailers for The Last of Us and Lords of Shadow. :D
#39 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Castlevania!!! Looks great. I am glad they are starting from where they left off in the final game. The ending was so shocking that I didnt think they would go in that direction straight away, but seems we are. I am going to love this game.

And we are getting a PC port. Oh yes! All over my face.

#40 Posted by GalvatronType_R (1926 posts) -

Except for South Park and Last of Us, these are all prerendered CG trailers. No actual gameplay. A not surprising fail.

Still waiting for Big Rigs 2.

#41 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

Dark Souls 2! OMFG yes!

#42 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Just a CGi trailer. I really hope they are working on a next gen console. If they come close to those graphics, i would buy it and play it on easy.

Agreed. A next-gen Dark Souls would be the best thing ever.
