VGA Video Game Trailer Round Up – Bioshock Infinite, Diablo III, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Metal Gear Rising and MOAR
The 2011 Video Game Awards aired last night on Spike. It only took two years, but they’ve gone and turned into MTV. Flashy, scripted, pompous; a marketing machine masked as an awards show. And what the hell was Charlie Sheen doing there? The show was less about the awards themselves, more of a “look what’s next” showcase. This isn’t to say host Zachary Levi wasn’t charming and funny, which he was; getting tea bagged by a COD solider was the balls (literally and figuratively). Or seeing Felicia Day slice real fruit with ninja sword for charity wasn’t amusing and HAWT. Or that the awards for best character and game of the year weren’t justified; Joker from Arkham City and Skyrim where the right choices. The problem? It didn’t feel like a celebration for games and it’s creators. It was was all procedural and superficial. The whole night was just a big commercial for upcoming titles. Eh, I guess it is what it is. So…the trailers were plentiful. And I’ll admit, most were epic. I’m still hard from the Diablo III and Metal Gear Rising previews.
For your viewing please, NB rounded up all the exclusive trailers from last nights VGA’s. Enjoy.
