While most of you across the pond in Europe and the UK slumbered, The Game Awards 2014 took place in Las Vegas last night. We covered it by posting some rather nice trailers and a bit of news. Head below for a complete list of headlines.


There’s plenty to take in below, so I’ve tried to organize it a bit and add some humor into the mix. Even if you don’t think I’m funny, please be nice about it. I’m really tired today.

  • Here are the winners of The Game Awards 2014: Dragon Age: Inquisition walked off with Game of The Year and Best RPG awards. Mario Kart 8 also won two awards, as did Destiny and Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Nintendo took home the Developer of the Year award.
  • This Until Dawn gameplay video features a bat-wielding maniac: While I commend the lady for being concerned with personal hygiene, taking a shower probably wasn’t the best idea in the world, what with a crazy masked murderer running around the place. Then again, people in horror movies and games seem to lack common sense. This is why they always get killed in the most horrible ways imaginable.
  • In Before you play as a caveman: The next game from Rust developer Facepunch Studios was revealed as Before. The video for it shows and absolutely gorgeous world, but it also looks fraught with danger. Hopefully, you can survive.
  • Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. has a release date: The strategy game revealed during E3 2014 has been given a March release date. The 3DS title will contain both both local and online multiplayer modes. It looks bonkers.

And that’s a wrap, I think. If news I missed comes out of last night sometime today, I will add it to this massive wall of text.
