The Walking Dead has proven to be a massive crossover hit. Not only have the comics and television show been successful, the video game from Telltale Games has also received its fair share of critical praise. The downloadable episodic game even managed to grab Game of the Year at Spike's Video Game Awards this year. The PC version of the game's been out for a bit, but Justin and Rollin decided to give it a go since the console version released not too long ago. Did it deserve to win Game of the Year? Watch the two of them run from the undead, and go with your gut feeling.
Spike Video Game Awards
This weekend, Spike TV ran the Video Game Awards. All in all it was a pretty tepid affair, but it did give studios a chance to show off their forthcoming titles with a slew of exclusive trailers. We gathered all of them up and were just going to present them to you, gentle reader, but the embedded videos looked so lonely there, and we figured we were as qualified as anyone to have opinions on the Internet, so we added our compressed thoughts about each trailer into a single sentence. (Most of the time.)
The Spike VGAs have come and gone, leaving an aftertaste of pandering and lots and lots of cinematic trailers. Oh, and also they gave out some awards, with Red Dead Redemption claiming a respectable four categories, with the God of War franchise also being a strong contender. Winners, and their competition, below.
The first trailer for the next installment in Naughty Dog's Uncharted series, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, dropped tonight at the Spike Video Game Awards. The Spike VGAs may embarrass many of us gamers, but it's becoming more difficult to dismiss the award show when it graces us with world premiere trailers for series as incredible as Uncharted.
The trailer comes with an added bonus: A release date! November 1, 2011 can't come soon enough.
