Illustration for article titled It's Spike Video Game Awards Time [Updated With Winners]

Equal parts Oscars and E3 keynote - well, maybe more folks are tuning in for the latter - the 2010 Video Game Awards are on, live on both coasts, on Spike TV. We'll be breaking out news as it happens.


Neil Patrick Harris is your host. Rumors for this year's debut blitz include SSX, Mass Effect 3; confirmed teases include Resistance 3, Batman Arkham City, and Uncharted 3. Oh, they'll also give out awards for this year's best games.

Aaaaand Doogie just machine gunned a bunch of people in top hats. Well, on with the glitz!

Update: We'll be dropping in the winners of each category as they're announced.

This whole show is such a sham. Not a single character from Mass Effect 2 was nominated. Yet generic a Call of Duty NPC who unsurprisingly gets killed off win.
