Anyone going to watch this tomorrow: The Game Awards


#1

So…The Game Awards 2014 are going to be on tomorrow…

Its produced by Geoff Keighley, this guy:

And its the phoenix that rose from the ashes of such treasures as the VGAs and VGX.

I would totally go to this thing in Las Vegas tomorrow, but I don’t want to pay $45 to get in. I want to try and swing some free tickets or something, but I don’t see that happening…

Anyway, PlayStation is going to (stupidly) show off some stuff there, since they are already having their own convention the very next day in the same city. I don’t know how many of you are tuned in to this kind of thing.

I’ll check it out for sure, thanks for the reminder

@PittInjury, you should start a thread that has live updates from the PS Experience. We can market it around.


#4

Didn’t even know this was on, thanks for letting me know, will def have to check it out

I am totally willing to do this! Hopefully there will be enough signal for my iPad and/or my phone. Any suggestions on structuring?

Also, I mean, the awards show might be cool. Its pretty much going to be ads for new video games with a pat on the back to whoever shows up IMO (just like VGX was last year). I don’t care much for Mr. Keighley, but then again, I’ve never met the guy.

EDIT: It looks like if you have any sort of gaming device connected to the internet, you will be able to watch it via streaming…

I can totally embed tweets to my guild's forum, right?

Hmm…thats what my tweet looks like when I try an embed…not exactly what I had in mind. I may have to try something else for live updating…

Edit: attempt #2

It’s not terrible?


#8

no, but I was thinking it would look like an actual tweet…

We’ll see what @tommy2118 can whip up!

Dang, now I’m kinda nervous! I may have to get to the keynote super early, because only the first 5,500 people get to go in, and I’m in no way a press member…

You are doing an awesome service. I wish I wasn’t so busy. Maybe we can hit the next big event!

i hope so! I am flat broke as it is, and the only reason I can go to this is because i’m driving and staying with relatives.
