    Spike VGAs 2012 - new trailers and reveals

    The most embarrassing show of the decade returns! It will be streamed worldwide on GameTrailers and Spike. Pre-show starts at 5PM PST, the real horror at 6PM.

    This year's highlights:
    - new trailers for games likeBioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider, South Park (confirmed gameplay), Castlevania LoS2 (confirmed for PC, rumoured that a port of the first game will be included in the special edition)
    - five new games to be announced, including next-gen titles
    - "an amazing announcement for old-school gaming fans"
    - a SHOCKING AND AMAZING reveal
    - Samuel L. Jackson hosts the circus
    - Produced by the Doritos Pope himself!

    LET'S DEW THIS

    9pm EST = 2am GMT.

    I'm looking forward to the inevitable train-wreck, as per usual. I expect Geoff Keighley will make a joke about the Dorito incident.

    I'm looking forward to watching the Lords of Shadow 2 trailer on Youtube. That is my favorite Castlevania that isn't Symphony.

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    There are times when I reflect and think "man, I so picked the right hobby." This is not one of them

    (actually seeing the Doritos Pope absolutely was)

    (and it's weird the charisma that hat gives to what used to look like such a dead face)

    Sam Jackson should be entertaining at least.

    While I'm sure it'll be cringeworthy, I don't really care that this sort of event happens. Ah well. Samuel L Jackson, at least.

    Considering the venue, this statement fills me with dread. What are they taking away from me and/or changing for the worse?

    Free OLD SCHOOL GAMER T-shirts under every seat, all emblazoned with some kind of wildly anachronistic logo that makes anybody who actually played a videogame prior to 2006 grind their teeth into a fine paste

    Free pair of rose-tinted spectacles with your next GOG purchase.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    IIRC, I watched last year's show. I'm still not certain what that show was about, but it certainly wasn't about video games.

    Bear in mind it's the US, so it could well be some long dead Nintendo franchise or some such coming to the new Wii

    People have thrown out that it could be the rumoured Yoshi's Island (SNES) follow-up on the WiiU, but yeah, it's unlikely.

    2 and a half hours to go people!!

    Chances for Fallout 4, then guys? Bethesda are doing DLC, I guess but apart from that they've got nothing.

    Fucking hell, fifteen seconds of that was too much for me. It's like Entertainment Tonight for people who pretend to like videogames.

    "We wanted to make like a Nike for nerds, like a lifestyle brand for nerd culture because there just didn't seem to b-" click.

    Actually it was educational; I had been wondering why despite being more accepted and visible, nerds are suddenly far more boring than they ever used to be. It used to take a certain amount of bloody-mindedness to pull it off, so there'd usually be genuine conviction hidden behind the social awkwardness and inculcated self-loathing, but now it's all pretty much prescribed and most of the ones I meet are just... lazy. And ironic. And they treat games like catchphrases. And I think I just saw a partial explanation.

    These are by far my snobbiest forum posts ever but frankly I'm bloody proud of that at the moment.

    edit: on a happier note, I was impressed with how well the stream worked.
