        Yoji-Pro… I am now thinking again about the very sparse DS villains + statue we had so far.. Can you imagine what’s ahead !!?

  • Huh! I remember these concept arts from the Joakim Mogren Ruse Cruise. So cool

  • Mr.Pony

    Oh man those extra arms looks so cool!

  • Pliskin

      • Pliskin

    Thanks for blowing my mind Nyx … OH maaan, such fantastic arts :D. That last image of angry Kaz looks awesome, I love it <3.

  • SNKtheStampede

    Whoa! I’m so glad I preordered it! The whale pics look so cool!

    • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

      Yeuhp those Wale pics totally make want to go to Wales
      I love Welsh,you see
      Unfortunately I’m a broke loser

  • Gatsu

    🙂 I wonder what the world premiere is gonna be.

    • Good nominees but they skipped everything that is out in November or December. I think they should really make this award show for Jan-Feb or March… Makes more sense because they skipped Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian =/

      • Yeah it’s kind of weird that it doesn’t include the whole of 2016. It’s because the show is in December, but still weird.

        • Part of the reason why Academy Awards for Oscar takes place in February is because you can sit down, look at the whole year and include everything from Q1-Q4 without a silly decisions. November just came and TGA included few games that just came out, people have not even experienced them.

          On top of that, PSX is coming in a few days. Honestly TGA should be for Jan-Feb or March. It makes more sense to do it next year… =/

          • Full Options

            Agreed, December is not adapted, a 2016 award should take into account 2016 as a whole year.

      • Gatsu

        I 100% agree Golgari, I wish they would include the whole year :(.

    • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

      Fucking titanfall 2?
      Man FFVII and TLG are not out yet but that isn’t an excuse for TF 2
      Also we need more details

    • Full Options

      Nominees, at last ! THX Gats.

      • Gatsu

        No problemo :), I’m good at stalking Geoff in twitter when he post these things :3.

        • Full Options

          Thanks buddy, 2 little weeks left to real fresh meat either both at TGA+PSX or just PSX ! ;D

    • Barret47

      Wait, Dark Souls III only 1 nomination T.T
      Same Shit, Different Year
      and as Golgari said, no FFXV and TLG 🙁

  • SNKtheStampede

    I’m thinking about the gameplay implications the parasite arm and the archaeal would have had: turning enemies into puppets and rusting enemy guns and vehicles. It would have been nice to have those.

  • BurntFM

    I’ve been playing the FFXV demo and, boy is it addictive. I wish driving the car had more freedom but I can see why they chose to limit it to the roads. I thought I was going to get overwhelmed by the micro-management of the party but the A.I. does alright. The open world even thought it’s just a sample of the map is very big. I haven’t played FFXIV A realm reborn in a long while(didn’t renew subscription). But it reminds me of that sense of scale. Gameplay is tight. maybe targeting needs a little fixing. I feel like it’s going to be an epic game. At the end of the main Demo quest this trailer plays and it just got me hyped for release date.

    Ok, TGA’s webring received a major update. Boss is apparently not in the advisory board this year.. But will definitely check the ceremony anyways.

    http://thegameawards.com/

    There are more infos on the about page regarding the nominees selection, stating that all titles published after Nov 24 are competing for the next year ceremony, which does not really explain why some titles are missing for 2016 (that some of you guys complained about).

    • Does not matter really. For me TGA is just a show and nothing more. If I want an award show, I will look for Game Developers Choice Award 2017.
      TGA is just a show with game trailers. I’m going to watch it just to see Game trailers and maybe Koji will be with the DS. Everything else is just irrelevant.

      • Full Options

        maybe Koji will be there with the DS

        That’s actually the very unique reason I will check this ceremony as well. And Golg, stay sure that if we could directely skip the ceremony until Boss’s moment, I will do it and stop streaming when Boss is done. xD
        My gaming tastes are usually rarely matching winning GOTYs or stuff like that. A bit like as meaningful as Pokemons to me (xD so not much really). I am getting caricaturist for joking purpose, but that’s my funny way of seeing all this.
        I am only interested about some news from Boss (whether DS or na), but have to admit that all the rest is completely useless / nuts to me..
        xD

      Have you seen this Polygon interview with Geoff?

      http://www.dualshockers.com/2016/11/16/the-game-awards-gameplay-demos-developers/

      [Keighley: The Game Awards 2016 will offer “a little more context about what’s there,” with intended gameplay presentations to include Let’s Play-style videos, stage demos, and more to have “more diving deeper into games and gameplay,” with game premieres that will “run four or five minutes” and hoping that audiences will “be surprised at the depth of the some of the game content we will show this year.”]

      This is great news. I’m happy that Keighley is putting his foot down and trying to make the awards less of a media circus and more about the games. Also, I know it’s improbable but this is implicitly telling us that DS will have a substantial showcase (4-5 min trailer), since Geoff seems to want developers to actually show their games (not via vague CG trailers) and not just talk about it.

      All in all I’m hyped for this TGA more than I’ve been before.

        We will lay low… ;D I personally think it would sound odd to have something for PSX and strictly nothing for TGA but who knows.
        We should logically have at least some little appetizers, I hope.
        I am so looking forward to seeing any progress.

        Edit : and thx for the link !

      • I don’t know man. It sounds a bit strange for an award show. It’s an award show, not E3.
        I expect everything Geoff said at PSX, but not at the TGA, because people and devs go there to celebrate the industry but showing off real time gameplay makes things a bit off for this type of the show. Maybe I’m wrong… but last year show was alright and … and this:

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          Yeah. I remember it all… *Shudders*

          I agree, purely saying something and then acting upon it are completely different things. We’ll have to see if this year’s TGA will act upon everything he stated in that interview.
