In case you were out this weekend doing something other than sitting at a computer pressing F5 every half an hour, know that you missed a ton of new game announcements.
Yes, the Spike Video Game Awards, held on Saturday night, brought the new shit like it was June and this was an E3 of old, with five games making their public debut at the show. For those who missed our at-the-moment weekend coverage, those five games are:
Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Green Day: Rock Band Deadliest Warrior: The Game True Crime
That wasn't all. We also got our first look at a number of 2010's biggest titles (albeit ones we already know about), namely:
Halo: Reach Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Medal Of Honor Spec Ops: The Line Crackdown 2 UFC 2010 Undisputed Tron: Evolution
Phew. While nothing above was truly surprising, it's still a lot more stuff coming out of a weekend in December than you'd otherwise have expected. Hence the recap.
You can catch the trailers and reveals here, here and here, while you'll find the full run-down of the night's winners (remember this was, before it became a pre-Christmas marketing event, an awards show) right here.
