Fucking ants. That's the big Skyrim secret? ANTS!?

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST FOLKS. KEN KONRAY WAS THE VOICE OF BATMAN.

My video paused right before they gave the results for Best Trailer.

#6 Posted by Milkman (17193 posts) -

Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD actually sounds awesome.

#7 Posted by FLStyle (4842 posts) -

For a pre-show this has been very watchable, we'll see how the main show goes.

Nah, they just showed a poll for what was the most anticipated trailer of the show. It was Bioware`s new game with around 30% of the votes. 
 
Tony Hawk HD is now being talked about. Downloadable game for less than 20$. Out around summer time. 
#9 Edited by N7 (3658 posts) -

Tony Hawk's next game is download only and less than $20.

Bastion wins best downloadable game.

#11 Posted by stalefishies (343 posts) -

#12 Edited by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

Edit: Bastion really did have fucking amazing music.

doing the fighting game award now is a dick move its basicaly saying a popular genre has no place in your silly awards

tony hawk looks pritty good seeing as the ones with the skate board have not interested me in the slightest

good job super giant games on 3 awards im glad there getting there dues

#15 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

Greg seemed real nervous up there!

#16 Posted by Ewy (55 posts) -

Greg Kasavin in a suit, ok I'm in.

#17 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

I was planning to watch it on my TV. It hasn't started over here in the central time zone.

@Lunar_Aura: Is Marvel the only other fighting game worth a damn that came out this year? Also, that game came out twice this year, didn't it?

#18 Posted by emem (1972 posts) -

Well deserved @ Bastion.

#19 Posted by Little_Socrates (5693 posts) -

Man, real disappointed that Bastion just won what is probably every one of its awards during the pre-show. Unless "Best Independent Game" is on the main show docket, Bastion is not getting that award. XP

#20 Posted by Milkman (17193 posts) -

In all seriousness, one thing I love about the games industry is that their developers seem like real people. Seeing Greg up there winning an award is an awesome moment for anyone who's been following him since GameSpot.

#21 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18954 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: fucking thank you.
#22 Posted by rawrsair (821 posts) -

Pleased for Greg :)

#23 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

I just wanna put this out there: Saints Row the Third was nominated for zero awards.

NO NEED TO CARE, FOLKS.

#24 Posted by Little_Socrates (5693 posts) -

I'm actually fond of the way this pre-show has gone, outside of the Bastion thing. They've invited up the right people and asked some decent questions.

#25 Posted by agerstone (107 posts) -

Oh....a new Tekken

#26 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19377 posts) -

New Tekken game being shown (well, a trailer of it). 
 
Actually, it`s not new.

#27 Edited by stalefishies (343 posts) -

Guys, there's going to be more Tekken.
 
Who'd have thought?
 
Edit: WAIT THAT WAS JUST A NEW TRAILER FOR TEKKEN TAG 2
 
THAT'S NOT NEW

#28 Posted by Winternet (8035 posts) -

This Tekken trailer has zero content. ZERO.

#29 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

It's just Tag 2! That's not new at all!

#30 Posted by lord_canti (1519 posts) -

biggest NO SHIT of the evening so far is that there working on a new tekken and made it seem like a shocker

#32 Posted by Barrock (3552 posts) -

Welp. This is already terrible.

#33 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19377 posts) -

This is so... weird.

#34 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

this is kind of cool

#35 Posted by Winternet (8035 posts) -

Oh god, this is really baaaad.

#36 Posted by Seauton (116 posts) -

This is real shit

The Tekken part or the actual show?
#38 Posted by smitty86 (700 posts) -

Hasn't even been on for 1 min and i'm already looking for the mute button.

#39 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19377 posts) -

At least the audience seems to think that this is real funny.

Idk, I kind of like the stupidness of this all :D

#41 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Just started for me. Really reminding me of the Jimmy Fallon hosted MTV-something from years ago. Which is awesome in my book. Lego Jedi thing got a good laugh out of me.

No, the host being inserted into a bunch of video games.

FFFFFFFUUUUUUUU! And I was getting my hopes up something else would win. I expected this, but I'm still disappointed

#45 Posted by Barrock (3552 posts) -

Guys. Brooklyn Decker and Will.I.Am. Huge gamers!

#46 Posted by Winternet (8035 posts) -

Ok, the portal entrance was somehow coolish.

#47 Posted by Seauton (116 posts) -

Why the fuck do they have will.i.am at the show? The best thing will.i.am ever did was get almost assaulted by Brent Hindes of Mastodon

#48 Posted by agerstone (107 posts) -

'rock the house'

#49 Posted by Winternet (8035 posts) -

Black Keys are good.

Well, that doesn't sound very weird. But then again, i'm not seing the show, i'm just lurking around here to see awards, and know about trailers.
