Quick Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010 Wrap-Up
First up is Mass Effect 3, which showed up as expected. Here's the world premiere trailer straight from the show and if you're a fan of the first two games, you're probably going to adore this entry. The video doesn't clarify intended platforms but at the end of the clip, it says we'll get ME3 for the holiday 2011 season. ...great, another huge title for next Christmas.
Secondly, for all you superhero fans, we caught a glimpse of one of the new villains in Batman: Arkham City: Professor Hugo Strange. The trailer just oozes the slick, professional quality we now expect from Rocksteady; Arkham Asylum was a technical triumph. And this doesn't just look good...it looks downright awesome.
Next, there's the announcement of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which is bound to satisfy the hardcore role-players out there. I was never able to get into this franchise but with such a lack of JRPGs these days, I might have no alternative but to try it. The release date? Oh dear lord...November 11. Better just hibernate towards the end of next year.
Lastly, we'll show you the trailer for Mortal Kombat. We now know that Kratos - the God of War himself - will join the ranks of legendary MK fighters, and we also know it'll support stereoscopic 3D. Woah...fatalities leaping off the screen into your living room! This reboot should be ready go go in April, so make sure your buddies are aware; nothing is more fun than beating on a friend in MK. Well, almost nothing.
These are the highlights but when we update our videos this week, we'll be sure to bring you most every last trailer from the VGAs, and that includes Portal 2, the newly revealed SSX: Deadly Descents, Prototype 2, Insane, Thor and more. Okay, this felt like covering an actual trade show and I didn't expect that. But I can't let it all go until Monday. ;)
