Saturday Morning Arcade LIVE! - S3E44: VGX of Legends

Oh how time flies. It seems like just yesterday we were writing blog posts about the Neil Patrick Harris hosted Spike TV Video Game Awards of 2011. It’s been a full two years since those entries, and things certainly have changed. Last year we watched 2012’s spectacle in Julian’s living room as I put together the SMA Text Logo you (possibly) see above. We freaked out over The Phantom Pain announcement… well, freaked out about the internet’s reaction to that announcement. And who could forget… well, I honestly forget what else happened last year. But of course, that’s last year.

The Spike TV Video Game Awards returned this year with a new name and format. After watching it in all its glory for three hours, the Saturday Morning Arcade Gang came together to rap about it, and our weekly happenings. If you weren’t able to join us on December 7, we have you covered.

Matt, Noel, Rakush and I assembled in the SMA Clubhouse to rap about The Spike TV Video Game Awards, also known as The VGX, forget what engine The Division Runs on, ponder about the Definitive Edition of Tomb Raider, weep at Nintendo’s appearance, yell at Broken Age’s casting choices, and wonder about the Telltale Games announcements. In between that we also mention Starbound, NBA 2k14, WWE 2K14 and the fact that I’m terrible at League of Legends… in a crass fashion. You can VGX-perience this monster of an episode by downloading the MP3 version here or streaming it through the embedded player below:
