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.

Im thinking a PC game for some reason

Wenis2029d ago

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-Assassin2029d ago (Edited 2029d 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

isyourhouseonfire2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

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.

FriedGoat2029d ago

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.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )


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."

Doritos The Official Videogame.

crxss2029d ago

why isn't the news picture Geoff and his Doritos?

Boody-Bandit2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

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)

Ryan_Hay2029d ago (Edited 2029d ago )

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)

Welshy2029d ago (Edited 2029d 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?

Hufandpuf2029d ago

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.

BigStef712029d 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-Assassin2029d ago (Edited 2029d 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

mynameisEvil2029d ago

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.

BigStef712029d 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

AdmiralSnake2029d ago

Never heard of Black Baron...but he seems annoying... Why the hell would he get a PASS to the VGA ?

Sigh..... Most of these Black Gamers...make us all look stupid. This is coming from a Black person also...

RXL2029d ago

ill rock with you on the doritos but heavens no on the mountain dew..

*drinks raspberry iced tea*

yes..that's the stuff..

Perjoss2029d ago

I can never take angry joe seriously, I think its that stupid moustache of his...

solid_warlord2029d ago

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

tommygunzII2029d ago

Star Wars Battlefront seems likely.

TenkoTAiLS2029d 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-2029d ago

I would love to see Road Rash.

But I think it might be Contra.

yeahokchief2029d ago (Edited 2029d 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.

mafiahajeri2029d ago

I dont know why I read your comment in Cole Phelps voice and Imagined your avatar talking...

Blaze9292029d ago

would people stop believe this tool? NOTHING "amazing" happens at the VGA - it's simply shit.

mafiahajeri2029d ago

Arkham city was announced at the VGA'S That was amazing...

TVippy2029d ago

In Keighley's world a fucking NAPKIN is "amazing". Pass...

i am honestly shock we haven't seen a pong game for PSN, XBLA, or wiiware all gen

Skate-AK2029d ago

1080p, 60 FPS, and 3D. Haha.

MattyG2029d ago

HALF LIFE 3. It has begun... Not that that's really old school, but hey, one can hope.

aliengmr2029d ago

One could also hope Valve wouldn't choose the VGAs to debut HL3.

ape0072029d ago

might be Time Splitters 4

Drainage2029d ago

its a marketing campaign using Twitter for more cash he gets for people who watch it. cmon guys

iamnsuperman2029d ago

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

Thirty3Three2029d ago

Crash Bandicoot DLC for All-Stars!!!!!!!!
