Spike’s Video Game Awards is tonight, in case you forgot [UPDATE]

Saturday, 12th December 2009 20:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Update: Guess what kiddos? We’ve decided to liveblog the event as it happens. Should you decide that you wish to stay up till around 1:00am (UK’ers) to check in with us, we will update you as the shit goes down! So, if Jack Black shows up in his undies shooting sparks from his groin again, or should Cliffy B decide to show and announce that Gears is being ported to Wii – we will let you know the second it happens. Not that it will, just sayin’.

Original: Spike TV will broadcast the 2009 Video Game Awards tonight at 8:00pm EST.

To get you pumped for it, you can watch a live stream of the rehearsals going on at the moment, which promised to give you a taste of some of the world premieres expected tonight.

Earlier, Geoff Keighley tweeted that during the “first five minutes” of the show, one of the “biggest surprise premieres in VGA history” will take place.

Oh, Geoff. You big tease. Stop it already. You’re making us blush.

Guess we’ll have to watch it now.

    Yes, I’m from Croatia and Italy and Croatia are in the same time zone. Uk time + 1 hour. Where can we watch live streaming not just rehearsals?

    I have to watch it on a very small TV as the big HDTV in the living area is being used for MW2 and the medium one for RE5 co-op. :-(

    I hope I can find a better stream than last year. The one I ended up watching then was AWFUL.

    Any feed is better as long as it isn’t on the Spike website.

    @onlineatron : My bad! it looklike that we will really have a rock band green day. You were right :)
    It looklike that it will probably be more than a dlc since you will have Green Days member in the game.

    I hope Keighly isn’t referring to Gears3 when he says ‘the biggest surprise premiers’.

    We all know Gears 3 is coming… yeah it would be nice to have a trailer… but in no way shape or form would it be a surprise.

    What else could it be though? Episode 3 is the only thing i can think off that would suprise a lot of people.
