You fell asleep. Stuff happened. Therein lies the problem: what if you need to know about the stuff that happened? That's where we come in. Helping you digest the stuff that occurred, while you were sleeping.
Yesterday, unless you happened to be locked up in a tiny dark room sans internet, was the day of the VGAs — a cavalcade of cringe, an endless barrage of trailers and teabagging.
But first the trailers. Perhaps the biggest surprise was The Last of Us — a new game from Uncharted creators Naughty Dog. Part of me wants to groan and say blergh, much like a zombie would, at the thought of another game about the undead, but the trailer looked intriguing. Looks like another top quality, high end character driven effort. Should be boss.
Metal Gear Rising was reborn as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Turns out all the rumours about Platinum Games developing the game were super true. As much as I loved Bayonetta, I'm not sure if I want the same mechanics in my Metal Gear Rising. Hope to be proven stupidly wrong.
Other trailers? Bioshock Infinite and Mass Effect 3 were probably the big ones. But it wasn't all trailers and marketing — people did silly things too — like messing up onstage (Hideo Kojima, bless him) and complain about how rubbish the event was (Mark Hamill.) There was also tea-bagging, but I don't even want to link to that.
But that's just the start, may as well scroll through the site and look for other stuff. There's a lot of it.
