The Game Awards 2014 live report

UPDATE: No Man's Sky! The Legend of Zelda! King's Quest! And that's a wrap!

UPDATE: And that's a wrap! Thanks for watching along with us. Check Eurogamer tomorrow at 6pm UK time for a live report of Sony's much-anticipated keynote at the PlayStation Experience event. Planning anything exciting for Friday night/Saturday morning? Why not settle in with Eurogamer to gawp at the dazzle, swagger and vacuous spectacle of The Game Awards 2014. There'll be mugging from Mr. Geoff Keighley, for sure, hopefully offset by some new game announcements. Join the team here from just before 2am as we try to stay awake throughout the entire bash.
Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

16:59

MatMan562 says:

The big question, of course, is will Geoff Keighley be tucked or untucked? I'm going to guess tucked!

I'm actually voting for topless while he oscillates between frenzied sobbing and a mad howl.

01:22

We're less than an hour away! Get your favourite snack and energy drink of choice at the ready...

01:24

MCRMJ says:

I know they're showing off Metal Gear Online, but is Kojima actually going to be there?

Apparently so - and he's bringing Jack Bauer.

01:35

Hello lovely Eurogamer community! Wesley here. I'll be your host as we watch The Game Awards 2014 together. No matter how long it drags on for, now matter how cringe it gets, and no matter how many awards Naughty Dog wins, I'll be here, offering top quality banter, commentary and sarcasm straight from the Friends school of humour.

01:36

In other words, I apologise in advance.

01:37

01:38

Infinitely better than last year's crowd-less "VGX loft". And who's that in the front row?

01:38

01:39

Kojima - tucked, with a cheeky untucked waistcoat combo.

01:40

I'm only here for Marty O'Donnell, who has composed the music for the show.

01:40

That was a joke. A hilarious joke. I'm also here for the new The Order gameplay.

01:41

Sorry, still joking there. You got me.

01:43

You all saw the Street Fighter 5 announcement, right?

01:45

TeaFiend says:

Wait, from 2am? I went to the pub expecting boring news from Boring Geoff when I got back. This is terrible. Good night!

Stay strong and watch along with us!

01:48

What game announcements do we expect, then?

01:50

MCRMJ says:

Barbie Horse Adventures HD

Get hype.

01:52

zzkj says:

They really do need to have an award for most disgraceful use of microtransactions.

That would go to the Frozen mobile game by Disney. My wife plays that all the time. Disgraceful microtransactions.

01:55

samharper says:

I really don't want to stay up for this, but I can't resist... I just have to see how bad it is...

YOU INSPIRE US ALL

01:56

zzkj says:

The Sony event is ... rumoured to contain lots of pretty big stuff. I suspect that's where the Street Fighter V deal was going to be announced.

It was. Someone somewhere is very dead. Dead dead dead.

01:57

Zioman says:

The Last Guardian? :>

Hehe hoho

01:59

I can hear MUSIC FOR NERDS so something must be about to happen.

02:02

Here we go!

02:04

Ah, video game music on a piano. Banging!

02:04

Where's the dubstep? Needs more dubstep.

02:05

That was Koji Kondo on the piano, by the way, who composed Mario's music

02:05

Ah, it's Reggie. Go on and announce a new Metroid, will you? That'll save the Wii U.

02:05

That's another joke, by the way. Nothing can save the Wii U.

02:07

Did Reggie just say Captain Toad Treasure Tractor? That's what I heard

02:09

Nintendo is getting lazy. Mario Maker gets all the players making the new Mario so Nintendo doesn't have to. Lazy. LAZY

02:09

If it was Captain Toad Treasure Tractor, then it might have saved Wii U.

02:10

Miyamoto doesn't say anything about the new Zelda. Destroy everything

02:11

Ah, it's Geoff. Fair play to Geoff for getting The Game Awards off the ground after last year's, ahem, interesting effort. Still going to rip the piss, mind. No free pass from me, my friend.

02:12

Ah look, it's the new voice of Solid Snake, who everyone hates because he's not the old voice of Solid Snake.

02:13

Cool story, Kiefer Sutherland, aka bro

02:15

What did Kiefer say? Sorry, I wasn't listening.

02:15

Is Hideo Kojima getting younger? He's a freak. An ageless freak.

02:18

Metal Gear Online, or, me and the lads out in Croydon on a Saturday night

02:20

Graphics on Metal Gear Online look great. FOX Engine doing its work.

02:21

Of note: Metal Gear Solid 5 includes Metal Gear Online.

02:22

Tim Schafer now on stage, doing actual comedy. I like Tim. Met him a few times. Made me laugh.

02:25

Timmy! South Park wins best performance, which is the correct result, because that's the only game out of those nominated I have played.

02:26

Trey Parker's Timmy dialogue is the best, though. Had me crying.

02:26

Also, now we know why Kevin Spacey didn't turn up.

02:29

The Fullbright Company's new game teased there. Just a teaser though. Well, at least we know it's not Gone Home 2.

02:31

It's called Tacoma, and it's out 2016. New game from the creators of Gone Home.

02:31

Geoff mentions Steam. Half-Life 3 confirmed.

02:33

Right, new Bloodborne video. Too hard, crap game.

02:34

I haven't played it yet, but that doesn't matter. It's too hard so therefore crap.

02:35

I think they have some guy standing right next to a mic who keeps screaming at everything. Calm down, mate, it's just a video game awards show

02:36

Well that was Bloodborne. Looks like lots of co-op fun. Too hard, crap.

02:37

zzkj says:

That looks like dark red paint everywhere.

If it bleeds red paint, we can kill it

02:38

It's the guys behind The Banner Saga. I've met these chaps. They're really nice. Grounded, enthusiastic and talented.

02:40

A sequel? Well why not. The Banner Saga did well enough. Nice one.

02:41

Oh look it's Bungie, being cryptic. SHOCKING

02:41

I love you Bungie, but lighten up. It's just a video game

02:43

There's an award for "Trending Gamer". I repeat, there's an award for "Trending Gamer".

02:44

Total Biscuit wins an award. He is the best "Trending Gamer".

02:45

Oh it's Liverpudlian Peter Moore. No tattoos? Boooooooo (probably for the best).

02:46

Sorry Peter, Liverpool are rubbish #cfc

02:47

Right, this is the announcement that EA has picked up Hazelight Studios, the company founded by the people who made the brilliant Brothers

02:47

callmeqt314 says:

looks forward to seeing this company dissolved next year

ZING

02:49

Where do those people down the front get their energy from? Plus, more music for nerds. NERDS

02:52

Jeffrey's report on Fullbright's new game, Tacoma, is online. It's got a bit more information in it.

02:52

Oh it's Marty O'Donnell, my hero! Also, bet it's awkward him being there and Bungie being there. Awkward!

02:53

"Hey, Marty, how's it going?" "Not bad, Harold, since you GAVE ME BACK MY SHARES LOL."

02:55

Britain's Got Talent has finally arrived at Las Vegas.

02:56

I feel like I should take this piss out of this laser music thing, but they did Street Fighter, so...

02:57

YEAH! WOOO! Mate, your throat is going to be sore in the morning.

02:58

Please say deal with it, Adam Orth

02:58

You must

03:00

Adrift looks like Gravity the video game

03:01

Looks cool - wouldn't mind giving it a go with Oculus Rift

03:02

Shame Adam Orth didn't say deal with it

03:03

Ah god, this isn't funny. Sorry everyone. I know you worked hard. But this isn't funny

03:04

Thank god that's over. Right, best mobile game. Has to be Hearthstone. Oh no wait, Threes is actually awesome.

03:05

Hearthstone dev team not at the awards? Ouch. Well, they're probably in crunch because of Goblins vs Gnomes.

03:06

Reggie has been with Nintendo for 11 years. Bet the Wii U has been his highlight haha hehe hoho

03:07

Wait, Smash Bros. won best fighting game? It's not a fighting game. It's a brawler. GAH #elitistfightinggamefan

03:10

Reggie and Geoff need to get a room. And play Smash Bros. together. Gosh, you people have dirty minds

03:11

Codename STEAM will save the Wii U. Wii U saved

03:13

Wait, Codename STEAM isn't for Wii U? Sorry, the graphics fooled me

03:16

It's Godus 2 from Peter Molyneux's son

03:18

I joke. Another hilarious joke. That game was called Before and is not from Peter Molyneux's son. It is, actually, from Jon Snow

03:19

Before: "a game about pre-historic people and their survival. Created by @Billowper. Being developed by Facepunch Studios."

03:20

zzkj says:

Was there even any competition for fighting game aside from maybe Arcana Hearts 3: LOVE MAX?

Doesn't matter. Smash Bros. isn't a fighting game. Please try to keep up

03:25

Bring back Paul McCartney, all is forgiven

03:26

Battlefield Hardline has had a bit of a tough time, hasn't it? I kind of feel like no-one cares because it's not DICE. Plus, all the harm the BF4 launch did to the franchise means people are rightly distrustful over it

03:29

Nadeshot is the best eSports person. Bet I could have him at Street Fighter, though

03:30

jayc1 says:

What time does this finish?

It is eternal, unending, relentless

03:32

Sports and racing are so niche they have to bundle together to get their own award

03:33

Mario Kart beats FIFA to the best sports racing game award.

03:36

The Order isn't doing it for me. Just feels a bit boring. And I've played it, yes.

03:37

It's a shame, as it's set in London.

03:37

This is something about baseball, so I'm just going to make a cup of tea brb

03:40

Until Dawn looks interesting, although a bit David Cage

03:42

I asked David Cage once about all the people who said his games were just QTE-fests. His reply: "Bullshit."

03:44

OMG only half-way done. Please, I have a two-hour driving lesson at 8am. Have mercy on my soul, Geoff

03:45

I hope that was just a joke. Another hilarious joke

03:47

Wow, Far Cry 4 beat Destiny to best shooter. Elephant sympathy vote

03:49

This live report is a Stealth Destiny Article, obviously

03:50

Oh look, it's Damien from CD Projekt. He was over here for EGX this year. Passionate chap.

03:52

Now The Witcher 3 is one game I am excited for. Looks great!

03:53

Does that video mean it has a female playable Witcher?

03:58

No Man's Sky continues to look incredible, although I'm still not clear how it's all supposed to work

04:00

We're back with the Mercury Prize Music Awards 2014, featuring Alt-J, True Detective and Mario the pianist

04:01

JimJamJones says:

Wesley is so salty when it comes to Nintendo games. He can eat a dick.

Only if it's salted

04:07

Wait, a new Godzilla game for PS3 and PS4 next year. That was a bit... random

04:14

callmeqt314 says:

What happene dto sierra? did they shut down at somepoint? i miss them last i remember was gearbox halflife chronicles on pc

Activision just revived the Sierra brand for Geometry Wars 3

04:18

Activision has a new King's Quest as part of the Sierra label revival

04:19

wearethestorm says:

@callmeqt314 Todd Howard hopefully

Don't hold your breath

04:21

New King's Quest is pretty exciting. Tugs on those nostalgia heartstrings

04:22

Looking forward to King's Quest - out autumn 2015.

04:23

TekMerc says:

It looks like they weren't joking that hat was the half way point.

Yeah :(

04:24

Oh, there's a Dungeon Defenders 2 PS4 announcement. Out 2015. I had a chat with the developers recently, and they were cryptic when I asked about an Xbox One version. The impression I get is it's a timed console exclusive. PC version is out on Steam Early Access now, I believe.

04:29

WE'RE GETTING TOWARDS THE END OF THE SHOW! Have mercy on us Geoff

04:30

Andy House might have something to say about Shawn Layden being "the man who runs PlayStation"

04:32

Shovel Knight wins best indie game. Fair enough

04:33

Shovel Knight is a feel good Kickstarter story. There are some out there, then.

04:37

Was hoping for some Human Element gameplay, there. Disappointed!

04:38

This Eve Online video is amazing. When that game is good, it's incredible

04:42

Right, finally, game of the year award

04:43

Dragon Age: Inquisition is game of the year, then. What do you think of that?

04:44

I hope to get to Dragon Age over Christmas. Feels like a good Christmas game.

04:45

Here's Reggie. Are we about to get Zelda footage?

04:50

Well, that was some off-screen Zelda footage. Map sounds big

04:51

So, Starfox Wii U out next year, before Zelda, which is also out next year. Wii U saved?

04:55

Looks like Imagine Dragons are playing us out. Well, The Game Awards was certainly better than the VGX Awards, although about an hour too long. Highlight for me was No Man's Sky, King's Quest and The Legend of Zelda. What about you?

04:59

Koji Kondo was pretty great there, at the end. Zelda music is always awesome.

05:09

Right, that's our lot! Thanks for sticking with us through the night for our live report of The Game Awards 2014. Byebye!

    Yautja_Warrior 7 years ago
    The Tucked / Untucked joke is not funny anymore, it's a bit weird tbh. Eurogamer needs some new material.
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    It wasn't so bad. Much like any other awards how tbh. They're all bullshit. They could work on tightening up the timing of hand-overs and stuff though.
    rock27gr 7 years ago
    Koji Kondo is legend
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    Koji Kondo. What a dude.

    I can't work out if he's just waving it around because, or if there's some kind of hideous motion control aspect.
    Sherpa 7 years ago
    Think that DA:I is worst and least exciting from 5 nominated.

    Oooh, Zelda gameplay footage.
    rock27gr 7 years ago
    Zelda!
    Supra_Hans 7 years ago
    Wow, even those guys don't look like they were expecting to win that one.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    It only just came out, with little real fanfare or information. I don't even know any friends who care about DA. Doesn't seem the right choice.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Sigh. Predictable, boring.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    I deliberately avoided Eve because I know it would destroy my life utterly in ways I hadn't already managed.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    this looks brilliant

    You guys are all nuts, if I wasn't working a night shift I would definitely be asleep by now!

    jesus my typing is getting atrocious. what time is it? oh.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Well that looks annoying.
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    mmmm pre-renedered
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Good choice. Had to be Shovel Knight or Transistor really.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Is there going to be a post-show panel of some kind? I really think EG should cover it live if so.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    The dancing reminds me of a hippy girlfriend I had many years ago.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    That violinist is really hot.

    Are they going to advertise a GTA V patch that fixes the PS4 frame rate while driving fast?
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Shovelware coming to PS4 confirmed.
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    that that*
    rock27gr 7 years ago
    King's Quest looks great!

    It looks like they weren't joking that hat was the half way point.

    I haven't seen any real time strategy games get announced besides Total War...-.-
    zzkj 7 years ago
    That guy DJing with what looks like a gameboy is really strange and akward.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Ok this looks awesome.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    @callmeqt314 I don't know, to be honest Ubisoft really put Activision into perspective. Even EA are looking good right now.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    That's a shame. GW3 isn't innovative in any way.
    Unclebenny 7 years ago
    I don't think you know what you're saying.
    Antwog 7 years ago
    I loved Sierra. World in Conflict was amazing.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Leisure Suit Larry HD is actually just what gaming needs right now.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    SIERRA was mentioned. Good memories. ;_;
    Unclebenny 7 years ago
    I don't use ad blocker.Not too bothered really.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Nice, that trailer told us nothing about the game at all.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Evolve looks comprehensively poor.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    @JimJamJones Shut up, he's one of my favorite writers here. :3
    JimJamJones 7 years ago
    Wesley is so salty when it comes to Nintendo games. He can eat a dick.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    It's like gta when you're just cruising the city, hah.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Honestly if it was purely exploration to see what random creatures exist, I'd be happy with NMS as a game. It's so completely different to anything seen before and the 70s/80s sci-fi art style is perfect for it.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    No Man's Sky looks to be absolutely awesome.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    Agreed, Valiant Hearts is a beautiful piece of art.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    NO MANS SKY
    Zioman 7 years ago
    Yennefer is a mage ;) It would be interesting to play as a mage in the Witcher world.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Whats this for? Ripping off customers or just insulting them? Go away Ubisoft.
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    @callmeqt314 anyone who's not a bell-end?
    zzkj 7 years ago
    This is one of the few games I've been happy to keep on preorder. There's nearly zero chance of it being anything other than good.
    Unclebenny 7 years ago
    Me!
    DeadGamer 7 years ago
    @callmeqt314 All the Nintendo bias comments he has made. It's like I remember a similar guy did this last year with a press conference.
    Zioman 7 years ago
    Attention whore :p
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    @zzkj I see. Seems like it deserved it, then. :/
    TekMerc 7 years ago
    @callmeqt314 at least he didn't inject racial slurs into it
    zzkj 7 years ago
    @DeathMetal Thing is, Wolfenstein was really great. It had a good story, good characters, good controls and it ran smooth as silk while looking amazing. And it lost to some Ubisoft open world crap.
    Antwog 7 years ago
    I hope Far Cry 4 is better than 3 because 3 got so boring with the side missions after a few hours.
    Unclebenny 7 years ago
    Titanfall or Wolfenstein for me. Lets face it though, we are not here for the awards.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Nothing 30fps deserves to even get nominated in that category.
    DeadGamer 7 years ago
    I'm almost done with EG after this Liveblog being so bias.
    DeathMetal 7 years ago
    I don't play shooters, but what of it? Did you guys not like FarCry 4? It seems good.
    Zioman 7 years ago
    Wolfenstein :(
    Antwog 7 years ago
    Far Cry 4 won? Thats surprising.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Oh fuck off. Really? 30fps shooter laced with season pass baggage gets best shooter?
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Come on, give this award to Wolfenstein - it's the only one that deserves it.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    My sleeping pattern is almost totally fucked up and has been for decades, I'm kind of happy it's only half way through.

    Poor Tomb Raider. What happened to you?
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Until Dawn, even.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    Ok Before Dawn looks interesting.

    Mario Kart is always glorious, but FH2 deserved it. Brilliant game. :(
    zzkj 7 years ago
    FIFA and NBA are actual sports games though.
    Antwog 7 years ago
    Mario Kart 8 deserved it. Fifa and NBA had bugs galore with their games, but I think Trials should have won.
    tomphillipsEG 7 years ago
    @_MrTomFTL Thanks for flagging up that bug. We'll get that sorted.
    zzkj 7 years ago
    oooookay... Mariokart now a sports game. Come on Reggie here's another one for your rack of undeserved things.

    @Wesley I agree with you, but it keeps getting played at fighting game tournaments so I can see why they included it as an option.

    Bit quieter than E3 this, isn't it?
    MCRMJ 7 years ago
    Sony will want to keep some surprises for their event (if Capcom doesn't leak them all beforehand). Metal Gear Online we know about, how about some stuff on Mirrors Edge 2 or Star Wars Battlefront, that'd be nice.
