Couldn't make it this year's DICE Summit, but still want to bask in Jay Mohr jokes and watch Interactive Achievement Awards handed out to gaming luminaries? You can do so right now, as the awards show is now streaming online.
The video game industry's equivalent of the Academy Awards, the Interactive Achievement Awards is being streamed live on IFC.com, with a replay running on the film channel next week. With Uncharted 2: Among Thieves leading the list of video games nominated by members of the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. Who will win?! Which off-color jokes will Jay Mohr make?
In addition to video games and their creators winning awards for 2009's best, Activision co-founder David Crane will receive the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences' first ever Pioneer Award. Entertainment Software Association founder Doug Lowenstein will receive the AIAS' Lifetime Achievement Award, and Marble Madness creator Mark Cerny will be presented with the Academy's Hall of Fame Award.
Plus, Jay Mohr is a funny guy who will hopefully make us laugh.
Things appear to running a little behind at the time of publish, but stay tuned. We're sure there will be guffaws and sincere thanks aplenty when IFC and the AIAS get their acts together.
