I was on the other side of the planet from the actual DICE awards show, and didn't catch all the stream, so I missed this last week. Shame. The best part of any awards show are normally the parts where a drunk guy wanders onto the stage and things get weird.

To his credit (anyone recognise the Skylanders dev in question?), his heart's in the right place. Every awards show should honour its recipients properly, not consign some to montages and others to gala sequences simply by virtue of their chosen field.

But there's a time and a place (and a way) to bring this up. The stage, on the night, probably wasn't it.

Well played Chris Hardwick, by the way. That could have been handled much worse.

Note: if the vid doesn't autoplay at the correct point for you (it should), you're looking for 2:07:30.
