Episode 54: VGA 2012

My readdiction to Diablo 3 continues. I've been squeezing in play time here and there when I can and am still having a blast with my Witch Doctor. Still haven't messed around with the Auction House though so maybe that'll be my next endeavor. Sadly, nothing new to talk about today so instead, here's a quick recap of the 2012 Video Game Awards

This year marked the 10th Anniversary of the VGAs and my favorite host, Samuel L. Jackson, was back manning the microphone. 

The crowning glory of the night, Game of the Year, went to The Walking Dead: The Game. To save time I'm just going to list some of the big categories and their winners:

Studio of the Year: Telltale Games

Best Xbox Game: Halo 4

Best PS3 Game: Journey

Best Wii/Wii U Game: New Super Mario Bros. U

Best PC Game: XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Best Graphics: Halo 4

Best Independant Game: Journey

Best DLC: Dawnguard - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

There are several other categories listed at their website. Click here to check the full list of winners. 

There were also tons of World Premieres including The Last of Us, Dark Souls II, BioShock Infinite, Gears of War: Judgement, and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Click here to check out the full list of world premieres and their trailers.

And there you go, a nice breakdown of the great games that have come our way in 2012 and an awesome playlist of great things to come! Until next time, get out there and get your game on!
