New Graphic Shows Where Yesterday’s VGX Was Most Popular

VGX co-host Geoff Keighley just clued us into the regions throughout the world where the awards show was most popular. Heat map style. (Industry, VGX)

That Kranky Kong Though!

Yeah, Nintendo blew it out of the park with that one. Megaton bombshell! Lol.

@Muffins1223 - Yes, yes it definitely is sarcasm. XD

I don't get why so many people are so negative about DKC. It's the reason I bought my WiiU. DKCR and DKC TF will be the best games on the console. Retro did a truly fantastic job in every sense of the word. THey nailed the classic feel of the old games while making it new.

DKCTF is one of my top 2 anticipated games for 2014 along with Dark Souls 2. Also semi excited for Evil Within, The Birth of Isaac Rebirth & SuperSmashBros but everything else I don't care.

As someone who has played all the games in the franchise, I'd say the announcement of cranky was pretty huge but the execution of the event could have been better. I like Joe Mchale's comedy but the event just did not seem professional. You had the nintendo guys in suits and the rockstar representatives looking classy with the hosts in a plaid shirt and the other guy wearing layers of jackets.

Don't get me wrong, it was a step up from previous years where they had to use corporate advertising, but i think they took it a step too far. They need to find a happy medium with advertising. No doritos and mountain dew in the game award titles etc but make it look halfway professional at least.

I'm not saying it should be a suit and tie event but at least a dress shirt would have been appropriate for this type of event. Happy mediums.

I didn't get to watch it but from everyone reaction I didn't miss anything.

There's a 3-minute video highlighting all the "high moments" and the basis of the show. Just 3 minutes made me sick.

When it finished I found myself thinking I could have been playing this whole time, I want my 3 Hours back. From Joel making fun of gamers and the industry with terrible jokes and You Tube degenarate clips to the stoners trying to run the live music part which they seem to think anyone who plays GTAV only listens to Rap music and only showing what, 3 awards. This was no where close to being an awards show. No wonder Spike didn't air it, they should have stuck with the old format. Atleast do it in front of a crowd made up of the industry.

That's where you went wrong. You expected too much if anything.

mega64 was the best part
LightSamus  +   260d ago
I quite like Mega64 when their doing they're daft video game pranks but what they did during VGX was dull.

The majority of the show was terrible i agree, BUT Quantum Break and Titanfall looked amazing. The Division, and the Witcher as well.
UncleGermrod  +   261d ago
nice disagrees, maybe you shouldn't mention anything related to xbox one, as this seems to strike up some dark inner demons around here.
RytGear  +   261d ago
Well considering the "gameplay" footage of Quantum Break was barely even .gif worthy, even that was a disappointment.

about 3 seconds of actual footage does not qualify as the world premiere of anything.
Xsilver  +   260d ago
Quantum Break game play trailer should of been called look fast or you will miss it :/
UncleGermrod  +   260d ago
@rytgear, all he said though is that they looked amazing, and they did. Gameplay or not, they at least seem to show so promise. I guess I cannot argue that they did hype this up to the point where people expected much more. I cannot help myself from feeling that every comment that mentions a x1 exclusive gets ripped up for some reason.

I am glad to see that many studios didn't waste their hype on half-assed trailers for this mess of a show, though.
strigoi814  +   261d ago
i think developers and Nintendo decide not to show good games at the VGX coz maybe they felt it is just not like before..coz its live..coz if you notice how they questioned Reggie if its the only one to be announced..and with the metroid pin on reggies chest..i guess they did prepare a surprise but end up keeping it to somewhere more nicer to show..

just try to think why NaughtyDog, Santa Monica, Epic games, Bethesda, Rockstar, EA, not even a Halo teaser and more big developers arent even present to show trailer of upcoming games?? im thinking they back out

akurtz  +   261d ago
I was about almost 2 hours in, gave up.
PaperClichePixel  +   261d ago
Same. Will not watch EVER again.
Elmatoor  +   260d ago
I actually watched the whole 3 hours and I think I died a little bit inside. The worst of it all it was in the middle of the night for me. I should have stopped watching after the first 30min.
Soldierone  +   261d ago
Honestly it was a slap in the face to gamers. Look at the portions of the show where they had ghetto kids literally just yelling into the mic for 10 minutes outside....

Literally one guy was just standing there yelling random things like "I have shoulder pads!!" and they all started laughing like we are 5 year olds.....

Couldn't tell if it was an actual production, or if it was just a youtube skit.
blackblades  +   261d ago
Tyler the creater a rapper another was taco and the rest is apart of his crew. That's what they do act stupid and crazy they also have a show on adult swim, ghetto kids that has money.
Soldierone  +   261d ago
Haven't watched Adult Swim in a while, probably because idiots like this get to make shows for it.
Callediceman  +   260d ago
Dude, that made my blood boil. i was sittin there watching those tools do that and i was just in shock. i thought i missed the punchline or somthing.. total disrespect for the gaming community.. and then that douche nozzle co-host argggggg all he did was make fun of gamers the whole time... very distasteful..

I actually started watching, to see if there would be any new reveals, etc. After seeing how the people putting that thing on didn't even care about it, I left (had something more important and pressing to do, actually watching paint dry).

Kill this filth with fire and acid, then nuke it from orbit, afterwards discard the remains into a black hole.

This was a huge overcompensation in the other direction from last year. People complained about the 2012 VGAs for being too mainstream and turning it into a celeb popularity contest, and now they went wayyyyy too far into the other direction.

Very very boring, awkward, and sort of a cruel joke on those who were invited.
just-joe  +   260d ago
You know you did something wrong when Cranky Kong was the only announcement trending twitter.
