It's Spike VGX time, which means we're in for an afternoon filled with trailers, new game announcements, and a show that will hopefully be less gross than its tagline.


UPDATE: Show's over, folks. Highlights: No Man's Sky, Telltale's big surprises, Nintendo awkwardness, Titanfall.

Original post follows:

The folks behind the show promise that this year's award extravaganza will be a little different than previous years'—instead of red carpets and celebrity skits, we're going to see more awards and more chats with developers, host Geoff Keighley promises. We'll see games like The Witcher 3, Titanfall, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Broken Age, Destiny, and a lot more.

The three-hour show starts at 6pm Eastern, and you can watch it all right here. Via Spike, we've got the full schedule right below the livestream, in case you want to know when to tune in for something specific. We'll also be posting all the news on Kotaku as it happens.
