Live: Watch the Spike VGX Awards 2013 Right Here

Posted by Sammy Barker

New name, different games

This year has been packed to the figurative brim with various video game livestreams – but there’s still time for one more before Christmas. In the past, the Spike VGAs have played host to a slew of huge game announcements, including Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and The Last of Us. Sony’s keeping its cards close to its chest this time around, but that doesn’t mean that you should skip on the freshly named VGX Awards.

Set to start at 18:00PM ET (15:00PM PT/23:00PM GMT) and run for an unprecedented three hours, GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley and company are promising first looks at Tom Clancy’s The Division, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and several unannounced titles. We’ll be loitering in the comments and on Twitter and Facebook, so feel free to send us a message while you watch the show. And don't forget to share some of your dream announcements, too.

Question for any Americans: do these actually mean anything to you? They mean absolutely nothing over here in Blighty.

@rastamadeus Not really, my group of friends and I tend to not really pay attention to the awards. We get excited for all the game reveals and announcements though. Those are usually exciting, although, now that Naughty Dog already announced their next game, I don't what we're gonna do!

I'm excited for VGX, but man there is a Ton of boxing on the TV tonight, so I'm gonna miss the last hour.

Watched almost an hour and it's excruciating. You can hear how empty the studio is, the two hosts are clearly dickheads and their presenting style is best politely described as "amateur". Just terrible. Only decent thing so far is Telltale's Borderlands tease.

No Man's Sky - the game that has made me want to get a next gen machine. That four (FOUR!) people are making that is just amazing.



AlexStinton said:

@rastamadeus No Man's Sky is definitely the highlight of what was shown so far. As for the show itself it makes the old VGA's look like a masterpiece.



EGMagnus said:

That game looks AMAZING. Whatever it comes out on I want it and the fact that it's being made by four people is insane. If the gameplay turns out good than that game could be the best thing since sliced bread XD

So glad Sony didn't waste any new announcement for this abomination called 'VGX'.

It would have had a reversed effect lol. Keep those new announcements for real events.

Well that's 3 hours of my life I'll never get back the only good reveal's was no man's sky and broken age

The best part of these awards is always the anger that takes place afterwards. The rage over GTA V winning GOTY is great. The butthurt over Nintendo going there to talk about Cranky Kong is even better. It's hilarious to me that some people thought Nintendo would be stupid enough to waste Zelda or Smash or Mario Kart or something else significant at this 'event.'
