Zero Punctuation, everyone’s favorite video game rant reviewer, will be making a guest appearance at this year’s Game Developer Choice Awards during the GDC next month.

Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw is producing three new Zero Punctuation shorts to be played during the ceremony to present his personal awards for video game achievements last year. Hopefully, they won’t lose any of their bite just because they’re being made specifically for a group of developers. I suspect they may, in fact, be even more sharp-tongue and witted.

The three videos will pop up on The Escapist online magazine shortly after being shown during the ceremony.
