You know we're going to need a Thread.

The Awards are not Televised this year so we're going to E3 it.

Steam Already has a page up where you can watch the Stream and Buy some Discounted Nominee Games.

if you want a full list of what's going to stream the event just click here.

Yeah, I'm really disappointed it's not being televised this year.

I'm getting kinda sick of streaming events lately...

It's a good thing if there is effort put into it. I bought a lot of HD releases as well, but there were some with no effort put into them.

I think they should re-release games like GRID 2, Hitman and Tomb Raider because the PC version of them was so much better than PS3/360 versions and I think more people should play those games (at better settings and higher res)

That will be an announcement for a later day.

Eventhough SE said the sales of TR disappointed, they said they are working on a new one. And yeah, I really loved the reboot as well, I just think the sequel should include some more tomb raiding :p

As I understand, that's exactly what the VGX is trying.

Yeah I liked it too. Some people criticized it for Lara becoming a killing machine. But you still need to have a GAME, in that case the story can take a back seat and I don't mind.

Beginner's guide to enjoying the VGAs:

Don't watch the VGAs on TV. Do something more productive with your 3 hours, like playing GT6.

Click on the forums when it finishes.

Read the three interesting pieces of news.

Go to Youtube to watch revealed trailers.

???

Profit.

Witcher 3, which has been in the dark since it announced, Nintendo's announcement and that's all I care about.

It was decent, if only it let you stay in control of it for longer in some sections. I hated how the game forced me into walking and crouching all the time.

The sequel also needs a good story and not a thrown together mess of cliches and stereotypes. And for the love of God less set pieces. You won people over already now make a more risky sequel with a bigger world (like you said) and actual decent exploration that has substance

I thought the cover system was great. It felt more natural than most other games that just glue you to a flat surface.

Well it's started. First World Premier is TALES FROM THE BORDERLANDS (Gearbox & TellTale Games)

Next TOMB RAIDER: Definitive Edition (PS4, XB1). Looking really good.

Reggie shows us DK: Tropical Freeze (with Cranky Kong) I thought they were going to show us a new IP or showing we weren't aware of. Reggie keep badgering Geoff about wanting more Nintendo new and games. What was Reggie thinking. Were are the BIG surprises?

Seriously 'amazing' and 'VGX Games Awards' don't belong in the same sentence together....
