As mentioned earlier, I was able to check out Spike’s 2008 Video Game Awards show last night. Sadly, most of the games were not of my interest, but I did want to check out what crazy things Jack Black planned to do, as well as to see Will Wright’s speech. Personally, the only game I might check into out of all of them would be Brutal Legend. Here’s hoping it will contain music from the awesome duo that is Tenacious D.
Speaking of the VGA, if you missed it and would like to check out some of the highlights of the show, check out the following press release. I’m still in the process of trying to get a copy of Will’s speech…I’ll let you know once I come across it!
