It’s hard to believe that the Spike Video Game Awards turned ten last Friday. During its run, we’ve seen it evolve from a celebration of gross gamer clichés into a semi-respectable awards show studios use to debut trailers for their upcoming games. Unfortunately, it has yet to totally drop the gross gamer clichés. There was no “Fueled By Dew” category this year, so I do believe things are getting better.
The trailers from this year’s ceremony – Tomb Raider, Dark Souls II, The Phantom Pain, The Last of Us, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Gears of War: Judgement, Assassin’s Creed III: “The Tyranny of King Washington”, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Halo 4: “Spartan Ops” – have been uploaded to the web in an official capacity. They are embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
New things learned the day of the ceremony: Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us will finally release on May 7, 2013. Bioshock Infinite, sadly, has been delayed again; it is now scheduled to come out on March 26, 2013.
