Get Ready for Spike’s Video Game Awards 2010 with Batman: Arkham City and BioWare’s New Game Premiere

Spike TV has just announced that the Video Game Awards 2010 will be LIVE on Saturday, December 11, at 8pm ET/5pm PT. It will be a two-hour event with a lot of exclusive premieres that includes Batman: Arkham City, BioWare’s next blockbuster project, and Director Guillermo del Toro’s first gaming franchise from THQ. You can check out the teaser for BioWare’s next project below.

The nominees and categories for the event includes BioWare’s Mass Effect 2 having 10 nominations, Rockstar San Diego’s Red Dead Redemption having 9 nominations, and both Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops having 7 nominations each. Looking at the numbers, I definitely agree with Mass Effect 2 and Red Dead Redemption receiving a lot of nominations, since those games are my top picks for this year. But I’m sadden that there’s no love for Heavy Rain for Game of the Year. It was a game that I thought deserved a chance. Oh well, can’t win them all.
