      Correct. Plus you’ll see a big link on the main page when you sign in to LIVE later today.

    VGA… the most disgraceful, corrupt and retarded event in gaming. Everyone who participates should be ashamed. The MTV Movie awards of this industry.

      Seriously, they are truly a corrupt bunch. Just look at all the weird category nominations and nominees. It’s probably worse than the MTV movie awards. I wonder if Samuel L Jackson takes himself seriously during this event.

        What other awards show exists to hype upcoming products in advertising form with new trailers rather than look back at the year that was? What other awards show takes place before the year is out – and before all major releases can be included – to ensure impact on holiday shopping? The VGAs are a commercial, nothing more.

      Geoff explains that in the interview, but if you have not had a chance to listen yet, there is a special award that is being awarded based on the SmartGlass results. Of course you’ll have to watch them in real time (not VOD) to participate.
