First two premiers set for the 2012 VGAs

The first two premiers for the 2012 Spike TV Video Game Awards have been confirmed. (Gears of War Judgment, PS3, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)

I can't wait to get another glimpse of The Last of Us. That is my most anticipated game for next year. The game looks fantastic.
dboyc310  +   603d ago
Hopefully we get to see a full on trailer with the infected.
ABizzel1  +   603d ago
The more I see the Last of Us, the more I think it's actually the new direction for Uncharted.

Joel looks like Drake, and the "mysterious woman" looks like Elena with dyed hair. Even her outfit looks like something Elena wears.

I have a feeling Ellie is actually Elena's daughter (both names start with E's and are 5 letters long), and she asked Drake aka Joel (takes up a new name after the apocalypse) to get here out of there as a last dying request.

If this is the case then consider my mind blown. But I could be reading into this more than I need to.

Anywho I can't wait to see more footage of TLoU, and I absolutely can't wait to own it.

^I think you're overthinking things a bit.
dboyc310  +   603d ago
I get a big the walking dead/I am legend vibe when I look at the screenshots and the videos that have been released. The last of us is surely to kick ass once it hits retail.

I wonder if we will get a glimpse at the single player for God of War Ascension....The MP looks incredible. If you haven't seen THE BIG REVEAL 7min video, they are really doing something revolutionary in the MP aspect. To think, they aren't tacking on any MP, they are revolutionizing third person MP in gory glorious style
Zuperman  +   603d ago
mehhh VGA's always let us down with these "WORLD PREMIERS".

dboyc310, Actually, I feel it will play out much more like the road instead if I am Legend.

The last of Us looks average. I'm glad it's not multi-plat because there would be more people like me saying the same thing :P

I want to see some Fortnite, Bayonetta 2 and Gears: Judgement.
knowyourstuff  +   602d ago
Meh... does anyone really care what the bought-and-paid-for people at Spike really think? Every year they just give the award to the game that sells the best, usually anything published by Bethesda, so you can probably bet Dishonoured will be getting some love, and perhaps Halo 4 and Call of Duty. Really, if Journey wins a single award on Spike TV I'll eat my socks.
Y_5150  +   602d ago
@ABizzel1 I though the same thing from when I saw that easter egg in Uncharted 3. But I extremely doubt it that that's the case. But if so, MIND BLOWN.
TotalHitman  +   602d ago
@ABizzel1

Wow! That's quite an over reactive imagination you have. Don't change, it's quite hilarious.

GTA V disagrees.
Ilovetheps4  +   603d ago
No it doesn't. I'm pretty sure I know what MY most anticipated game is. I'm not a GTA fan.

Awesome_Gamer  +   603d ago
@WrAiTh Sp3cTr3
Okay, we get it, you're a funny dude, now stop pretending you're not nearly crying everyday because The Last of Us is a PS3 exclusive.

On Topic: I can't wait, GTA V & The Last of Us are by far, my most anticipated games for 2013.
Boysangur  +   602d ago
Honestly, I'd rather find out who that woman is and whether she can be trusted in the actual game. I already regret watching that cinematic from Last of Us, where a guy cuffs the girl. Now that scene wont deliver the tension during play. I feel like Ive seen to much of the game already.
r21  +   603d ago
One of the reasons to watch VGA's, world premiere trailers and justified winners. Cant wait for more surprises :D
GuyManDude  +   603d ago
I think you meant to say one of the reasons to keep refreshing GameTrailers.com and YouTube.
iNMyFiN4LH0uR  +   603d ago
Agreed, most of the winners are justified and the trailers are awesome. But the presentation and the overall feel of the show its frankly condescending and highly absurd. I wish they take out all the irrelevant celebrity appearances and cringe worthy puns. The gaming industry is dignified entertainment industry and not the 12 year old wet dream that the producers of the show make it out to be.

r21  +   603d ago
Yup, the presentation of the show is horrid and embarrassing... I still remember that actual teabag performance :L
Vandamme21  +   603d ago
I'm not interested in none of those games..I do hope to see uncharted 4.
Hanso  +   603d ago
i guess uncharted 4 will be for ps4 like killzone...4
xD
Hoje0308  +   603d ago
But you are, however, interested in double negatives and unrealistic expectations.
phantomexe  +   603d ago
i do find the last of us cool but like you i'm hungry for another uncharted game. i'll even take another vita game at this point.

how would you expect uncharted 4 now when 3 was just released last year?
DeFFeR  +   603d ago
Drake's Fortune: 2007

Among Thieves: 2009

Drake's Deception: 2011

Explain how it's not feasible for someone to think that UC4 might be coming next year?

Last of Us: 2013

Why would Naughty Dog release two games in one year? Not only that, PS4 is approaching and the team that did Uncharted 3 is probably busy figuring out the hardware.
vortis  +   603d ago
@DeFFeR.

I should repost dafegamer's facepalm for this comment.

It's safe to say everyone is ready for next-gen and making UC4 for PS3 would just be redundant.

Last of Us is a good swan song for Naughty Dog's run on the PS3, but it's really time to move on.
phantomexe  +   602d ago
I'm thinking ps4 before another uncharted. Love to see another vita game tho.

I guess MS will stay quite for VGAs. 2013 will be the release of Xbox 3, so they don't fire the big guns just before the E3 announcement.

But with Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Gears of War: Judgement, MGS, BioShock Infinite, GTA V there are quite a few games to play anyway. There are other ways to end a gen. I am looking at you, Nintendo.
Silly gameAr  +   603d ago
So in other words, what you're saying is MS is already killing off support for the 360? Got ya.
#5.1 (Edited 603d ago ) | Agree(6) | Disagree(6) | Report | Reply
DiRtY  +   603d ago
Sorry I overestimated your intelligence. I am saying MS gives us a pretty big exclusive early next year and another year of excellent third party support. They will announce new hardware and new exclusive games for it at E3, because the timing fits much better than the VGAs and it is the bigger event. Got it now?
xJumpManx  +   603d ago
Might be XBox owners migrate to new systems and buy games at a much higher rate than PS3 owners.
Convas  +   603d ago
Looking forward to seeing both Gears of War: Judgment and The Last of Us trailers.
Dlacy13g  +   603d ago
Sweet... Elena is back for The Last of Us.
tack129  +   603d ago
It isn't Elena, it's a new unrevealed character played by a new actress.
Sizzon  +   603d ago
Hopefully a release date for Last of Us :)
Dlacy13g  +   603d ago
Yes a release date would be excellent...and possibly a bit telling for Sony's holiday / new console plans.
Jinkies  +   603d ago
Oh....right

Don't get me wrong I'm excited for these games I was just hoping to see some un revealed games, you know...the main point of the VGAs these days.

They could easily show off Gears and The Last of Us online any time they like...
#9 (Edited 603d ago ) | Agree(6) | Disagree(2) | Report | Reply
Dlacy13g  +   603d ago
typically at the VGA's in the past we have a mix of some known games and some "reveals". I have no doubt we will get at least 2 or 3 games we don't know about yet ....and most likely 1 at least will be a WiiU game. What will be interesting will be the cat & mouse game of possible "next gen" MS / Sony games that are meant for the next consoles. Other possibilities for a reveal are the Respawn guys game and Bungie...both devs have been very quiet for the past year.
Jinkies  +   603d ago
Well hopefully....

I want Eight Days to at least make an appearance, every year it's the same and nothing but I'm not giving up hope.

Agent, Getaway 3, Heavenly Sword 2, MediEvil 3, Fallout 4 tease etc

Hasn't that been cancelled?

@calis

Nope...it was put on hold

JohnApocalypse  +   603d ago
I hope with Judgement it will be Singleplayer footage because all we've seen is multiplayer

The Last Of Us !!!!!!!!!!!
yes !!!!!!!!!!!!!
WeAreLegion  +   603d ago
Last year's VGA's were better than they have been, thanks to Zachary Levi's hosting. However, they're still pretty bad and the producers at Spike don't actually understand video game culture. They understand bro's.

We don't want live performances from musicians. This is a video game awards show. Are you mentally challenged?!? We don't want supermodels handing out awards. They have no idea what they're saying. They just blurt out crap. If we want porn, it's free on the internet.

Also, that "3D" thing they do where they fill the on-screen room with stuff from games...is just stupid. Everyone, especially Geoff Keighley, always hypes this show like it's the second coming of Christ.

We watch this for the videos. Why can't they take the time to make it decent?
DigitalRaptor  +   603d ago
"They understand bro's."

Yep. Angry Joe has said it better than anyone. So funny!

Bungie's Destiny! I think it's time.
bubblebeam  +   602d ago
Hahaha coming from MR 117 himself! I'd also love to see it. I hope the games they make are awesome, and Activision lets them make them good. I know the contract is a bit dirty, but Bungie have proven they know how to make a good game.
ApolloTheBoss  +   603d ago
The VGAs are a gimmick. Samuel Jackson of all people is hosting. Now he's awesome , but not a gamer.
360ICE  +   603d ago
I totally forgot about the VGAs! The one thing in the world that I like better than everyone else. That and ice cream.
bubblebeam  +   602d ago
Lol by the looks of it those cheap 30 cent cones from McDonalds haha. (they are good though :(.........)
360ICE  +   602d ago
Cheap in cash, rich in taste.
But I should probably stop pushing ice cream now. Don't want to further any stereotypes people have about Americans.
Avraj45  +   603d ago
Can't wait to see judgment and last of us.
ScytheX3  +   603d ago
last years VGAs was pathetic, not was shown but the show itself.... annoying as f and that whole tea bagging thing was lame as f, and then that 'special' guest guy was even more pathetic and just straight annoying and didnt fit in.
jay2  +   603d ago
I'd love a release date for The Last Of Us, GOW J cool.
TacticAce  +   603d ago
I think we will see a lot less Reveals this year because most games that are not announced by now are next gen games and we all know those wont be unveiled until E3.

jaklink  +   602d ago
I would take whatever Keighley teases with a grain of salt, he has disappointed us with these things before. Although I do not know what falls into his definition of "oldschool," I will avoid trying to pinpoint which game that would be. However, It would be exciting to see Bungie's new project, along with what Respawn Entertainment is working on.
isyourhouseonfire  +   602d ago
Last of Us is dead on arrival, like Gran Turismo 5 ended up being.
Y_5150  +   602d ago
You sir, are trolling.
isyourhouseonfire  +   602d ago
Having an opinion is trolling? Just look at what the long hyped GT5 ended up being. Last of Us is following the script perfectly.
Y_5150  +   602d ago
So your assumption that The Last of Us will fail is a opinion? GT5 is one of the highest selling PS3 games eva! So Already makes your opinion invalid.

Saying that Last of Us will fail like a success, so you are probably not trolling. You're just confused or something! :P
