No TV? Watch The Spike Video Game Awards Here, Live [Update]

No TV? Watch The Spike Video Game Awards Here, Live [Update]

If you’re somewhere without a cable television or, worse, no television at all, you can still follow the action from tonight’s 2011 Spike Video Game Awards live, right here. Courtesy of Spike and MTV Networks, we’re glad to bring you live streaming video of the broadcast.

UPDATE: It appears as though the VGAs isn’t available in Australia for licensing reasons. Lame. If anyone finds a decent stream feel free to drop the link below, otherwise we’ll update with the trailers as soon as they drop.

A half-hour pre-show begins at 7:30 pm, which you may also catch through the feed embedded below. As the night unfolds, we’ll be breaking out news from the evening’s reveals and trailers, and posting those videos separately as they become available.

Lastly, awards will be conferred in 26 categories this evening. Below are the full list of nominees. We’ll update it here as the winners are announced.
