This year, Spike rebuilt its annual awards show into something they hoped would be bigger and better. The newly rebranded VGX was a decent effort and a definite step in the right direction, but it wasn’t without its flaws. No one expected the three hour-long livestream to go off without a hitch, but I’m sure its producers would’ve preferred a few less hitches, or perhaps better chemistry between its two hosts: games industry personality Geoff Keighley and actor/host Joel McHale. The former tried to keep things on track while the latter proved to be a consistent source of diaper jokes and jabs at the developers (as well as Keighley’s abundance of layers).
This edited down cut of the show, which contains many of the worst moments, has already been taken down once, so if you’d like to see every hilariously awful moment from the Spike VGX — and there were many — I suggest you get on that before the Viacom’s army of sleeze bags take it down again.
Also, if you missed our coverage of the event, you can get caught up right here.
