Update: CoD4′s taken game of the year. Activision’s taken publisher of the year.
CVG’s live-blogging the Golden Joystick awards here. The site’s clearly getting hammered. There’s a link to the video stream on that page.
We’ll update this story with the winners as they’re announced.
After the break.

Future’s Golden Joystick awards kick off in London at 2.00pm today, and it sounds as though the publisher’s got its act together in terms of covering the event live.
Streaming video’s promised, as are a live-blog and photographs from the show.
From the official site:
But now for the most important part: the winners! So don’t forget to tune in to watch the ceremony live on Friday 31st October at 2.00pm GMT where it will be webcast live here at Golden Joystick.com, on Games Radar, CVG.co.uk and Virgin Media.com.
More than 850,000 votes have been cast for the awards, so make sure you’re watching.

DO NOT HIT F5. As in, don’t refresh this page. We’re about 5 mins away from starting and the blog will run on it’s own. So for the sake of clarity, we repeat: DO NOT HIT F5. Thanks.
We’re coming to you LIVE from San Francisco! LucasArts is hosting a huge press conference here today, scheduled to start at 2.00pm PST. That’s 10.00pm BST or 11.00pm CET, if you’re on the mainland.
As the conference starts the embargo will lift on a press release announcement and visual assets, so watch the front page for those.
We’ll be bringing you all the news from the event itself as it happens. After the break.

That’s right, pop stars. We still can’t tell you what we’re in San Francisco to see – on pain of death – but tomorrow at 2.00pm PST point your browsers at VG247 for an internet-snapping announcement.
What we can tell you is that you’re going to get screenshots, artwork and full details on a brand new game. That’s your lot.
As well as publishing the announcement assets, we’ll be live-blogging what promises to be a US press conference on an unprecedented scale. The publisher in question has shipped in more than 250 American press, as well as journalists from Europe, to see… “it”.
The conference will last one hour.
So. That’s 2.00pm PST, 10.00pm BST and 11.00pm CET. If you want to know first, you know where to be.

Live from the Jongleurs Comedy Club in London’s Camden Lock. The British games media industry is currently drunk. See what happens when some of them get awarded for writing about videogames. After the break. We’re using CoverItLive, so there’s no need to refresh.

We’ll be live-blogging tonight’s Game Media Awards in London, just so you don’t miss any of the “action.”
We’re up for two – “Games Website” and “Specialist Games Writer – ONLINE” – which means we sort of have to go, and seeing as we’re there we thought we might as well bring you the blow-by-blow account of us not winning either.
Find all the categories and the nominations after the break. Not sure exactly when it’s going to start. There’s a pre-show drinks thing at 7.00pm BST, so we reckon you should keep an eye on the site from 8.00pm onwards.

We’re sitting in Ubisoft’s UK offices playing the most recent build of Far Cry 2. Want to know anything? We’re going to start playing now, and we’ve got a while, so if you’ve got any questions, just stick them in the comments. We’ll do a few pieces from today over the coming weeks, but we’ll live blog this session as we go through for the sake of “the news”.
After the break.
