Here's This Year's Crop Of Spike VGA Announcements

Who's ready for some sequels?

Another holiday season means another Spike TV Video Game Awards means another slew of brand new video games getting announced. This year, sort of like every year, we've got a metric tonne of big franchise sequels on our hands. (I spelled "ton" the fancy way because it's Saturday night and what's more exciting than video game news on a Saturday night? Nothing, that's what.)


I'm filing this one first under the "least likely to actually happen" clause. It's SSX Deadly Descents. Wherever Sean Coonce is right now, I promise you he is stoked

The next Elder Scrolls game is called Skyrim

In a lot of ways I think Bethesda's RPGs are the best things going in the game industry right now, so it's pretty great to know that a new one will be out this time next year--11/11/11, actually--although this teaser shows you next to nothing about it. But watch it anyway! The hero of Kvatch would want you to.

Mass Effect 3 is in fact real


Uncharted 3 charts itself on November 1 2011

Please to be watching this trailer, hmm? 

There is a fourth Forza game and it is Forza Motorsport 4

Having myself recently discovered the joy of driving video game cars, I'm optimistic I might actually be able to graduate to a real driving game like Forza 4 by the time it ships next fall. Here's a trailer.

Prototype 2 is a video game

The first Prototype is a game I like less the more I think about it, but that's mostly because the concept for the game has so much potential, I want to see a game that really makes good on all of it. Let's hope this sequel is that game.

Guillermo del Toro's video game is called  Insane

There's not a lot to say about this one yet other than that it's a horror game and it ain't coming out anytime soon. Del Toro might be a Hollywood big shot, and those guys may not have much of a track record of actually shipping games, but the guy holds BioShock in especially high regard, so I'm at least cautiously optimistic that he actually cares about making a good game.

Resistance 3 out September 6, 2011

I've somehow never managed to play through a Resistance game on the PS3, but perhaps next year is the year that will change.


Here's a new Batman: Arkham City trailer

We've known about this game since the last VGAs so this isn't exactly an announcement per se, but I'm including it here because goddamnit do I want to play a new Arkham Asylum game. Man, that game was something else. This cannot come out soon enough.
