Geoff Keighley teases “amazing” VGA announcement for old-school gamers

It’s about this time of year when we start getting hints and teases related to the Video Game Awards that take place in December.

In terms of games, The Last of Us and Gears of War: Judgment have already been confirmed as premiers for the event. But what about surprises? (Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Will it be a Nintendo franchise or a Multi-platform franchise. I can't say I'm not excited, nor can I say I am. Come December 7th, I will know.

Wow is it really this time of year again. It seems like it was just last week Geoff was hyping up crappy games for the VGAs.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1174d ago
There is a heavy bias towards console games at the VGA's.... a PC only related announcement would be rare, unless its by blizzard


At least he delivered on the hype with the last of us I guess

In this day and age you really think companies would waste their time on something special for the PC? It ain't 1998 anymore buddy.

I hate all this fame/entertainment style review business. Geoff is an idiot and so are his co-workers. JUST GIVE ME DAMN GAME REVIEWS, no BS. No Doritos.

EA would make something for pc why not?

"Xbox 360 led the pack, bringing EA $292 million in the past three months. That compared favorably to the PS3 which did $267 million for the firm. But the PC platform actually managed to outperform Sony's console with $276 million."

Geoff Keighley teases “mediocre” VGA announcement. ow that would have been news worthy.

Every year it's the same old over the top hype. No reveal is worth watching that rancid show. I DVR it and fast forward to the premieres. Even than I'm usually asking myself why did I bother. The only reveal that would get me going is new hardware from MS, Sony or both.

*opens bag of Doritos and swigs some Mountain Dew*

F**k the VGA's and Geoff Keighley.

Here's how this "industry icon" treats people who just ask hrad, honest questions as to the nature of his show.

There have been improvements to them, but they are still a massive ad-fest that caters strictly to the mainstream and shows no desire to support the broader scope of the industry. (Coming from a guy who wants to design games one day)

How did i know that would link to that angry joe video lol..

Angry joe was an idiot plain and simple.Instead of coming off as a mature, respectful guy looking for an interview, he comes up to him with this smug "you aint shit Geoff" kinda attitude.Thinking he was going to put him in his place and shatter his world or something.

Low and behold, half his interview made no sense and Geoff just smashes him with facts.I wouldn't take that guy seriously either if i was Geoff.What a joke.

(Not trying to strictly defend Geoff here either, i still think he's a giant cancerous tumor in the games industry but angry joe is just a whiny moron)

Welshy  +   1174d ago

I'm not here to be a defendant of Angry Joe either, i was just using that as an example and despite it not being the best interview ever executed by Joe, alot of his points were correct and Geoffs attitude is just in general terrible.

Both Geoff and the VGA's are a massive smear on the industry that neads to roll up into a ball and die.

It's just one big ad with buddies giving buddies awards with 0% integrity.

You obviously didn't listen to the context around it then?

Not defending either party, but Geoff CLEARLY had a show to run and did not want to be bothered with questions at that time. There may have been dozens of times Joe could've approached him, but no, he decided to talk to him during the busiest time in the show.
BigStef71  +   1174d ago
Nonsense, AngryJoe is an awesome dude!!!!! Like me he thinks Saints Row the third is garbage compared to SR2. He's an actual gamer that relates to all of us gamers
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1174d ago


lol, I instantly knew that the link would be the angry joe interview.

Truth is, Geoff has always been an advertiser since he left gamespot. He hypes things coming up

The VGA's have zero credibility... and last years show is proof of that

if your speech is longer than 2 minutes some sergant comes and teabags you?

1) Out of the 1 and a half hours the VGA's take up, only 10 minutes was for the developers being recognized
2) Valve and Naughty Dog, never had a chance to be recognized during the show at all despite them winning most of the awards.
3) Hulk Hogan announces the bulk of the awards in a 1 minute montage that sucks
4) The VGA's prioritize more popular people, and the best male and female voice actor category is an example. Seriously Megan Fox for best female voice... with Claudia Black and emily rose who actually put way more effort, and actually made likeable characters? Nathan fillian nominated for only 3 lines of dialouge?
5) This is the one that pissed me of. THE BLACK BARON, THAT IDIOT WHO BITCHED ABOUT THE VGAS.... GOT BETTER SEATS THAN MARK F***ING HAMMIL! Seriously? They prioritize their shitty skits and gimmicks over the actual nominnes? Mark Hammil is a legend, and you treat him second rate, but give some idiot more privelage than him.

I mean look at this buffon

And look at how they treat Mark Hammil

They were litteraly giving away awards before the show started -_-

The VGA's are beyond terrible, and Geoff over hypes everything... he has only delivered once and that was the last of us

I actually have to agree with Ryan. Apparently, Joe doesn't understand that, no matter what you think of Geoff Keighley, he's really friggin' busy... especially on the night of the VGAs. Now, I can understand wanting an interview, but when he's supposed to be managing a night as busy as the Video Game Awards, he doesn't have the damn time for a 7-minute interview.
BigStef71  +   1174d ago
I you actually watched the video you would realize that Joe was promised 15 minutes sitdown interview with Keighley which Geoff screwed him by coming last minute and rushing Joe to ask his questions in two minutes. By the way Keighley was a huge prick during that interview he showed that he did not give a shit about being interviewed. You could tell from his body language. He kept looking away from Joe which is a very disrespectful thing to do if you are being interviewed. I'm glad that eurogamer author had the balls to write this article about who Videogame Journalists from the big sites like Keighley really are

There are afew games i can think of that will be announced:

1) Timespltters 4/HD Collection (I hope)
2) Half Life 3
3) Killer Instinct
4) Star Wars Battlefront
5) Quake
tommygunzII  +   1174d ago
Star Wars Battlefront seems likely.
TenkoTAiLS  +   1174d ago
Jeez, you must be a new gamer or didn't read the bit where is says "old school". I wouldn't call ANY of those games old school personally. Out of all of those Quake and Killer Instinct might slide in there just. It will be interesting to see what Geoff's idea of "old school" is tho.
DOMination-  +   1173d ago
I would love to see Road Rash.

But I think it might be Contra.
SegataShanshiro  +   1173d ago
What are you, 12?
yeahokchief  +   1173d ago
It's cool ranch doritos. He said oldschool.

The "VGAs" are a disservice to video games and are disrespectful to us gamers.

They reinforce false and stereotypes that are holding the medium back from being more than what the general population accepts it as.

The way this kid acted when he "interviewed" Angry Joe was just disgusting and unprofessional. Check it out on youtube. He acted like a total self-centered, self-important douche as if he was god's gift to video games. He's not doing us any favors. He's doing it for the money (and the doritos. cool ranch.)

And honestly there's no point in responding to this message because as you can see I have 1 bubble because this is all rigged. Biggest market for video games is little kids so thats what they focus on. We need another round of EXPENSIVE consoles to weed out the kids. Keep them on the Wii U and let the PS4 and 720p move forward.

I would agree. Usually these "amazing" announcements don't turn out to be amazing at the VGAs. Why can't the VGAs be about the awards and not because some new trailer being unvieled. It is in a way why gaming isn't really taken seriously

All I can say is to take Keighley's "announcements" with a grain of salt. I'm as excited as anyone for the VGAs, but we all know Keighley is notorious for overhyping the show into infinity. I do hope we see what Bungie is doing, possibly even what Respawn Entertainment is working on as well.
Chard  +   1174d ago
A Respawn trailer could be feasible bro, as the rumour is that their game is due March 2013. I hope so!

Doom 4 possibly?
bubblebeam  +   1174d ago
Very possible, considering they said after Rage that team would join the Doom 4 team. Coupled with the fact they recently released the Doom 3 BFG edition, I'd say it's pretty much going to be it.

If not, the I'd love Legacy Of Kain reboot, if that is considered 'old school'.
aliengmr  +   1173d ago
Yeah, I'll put my money on Doom 4.

Prime example Star Wars 1313. He made it sound like it was a gift from the Gods but it ended up looking like any average third person shooter with uncharted jumping mechanics. The only thing he hyped that turned out awesome was The Last Of Us last VGA's. Hopefully this announcement will be something good
