Uncharted 2 Takes Home Game of the Year at VGA’s

Uncharted 2 brought home the top honors from Saturday’s Spike TV Video Game Awards. The show kicked off with a teasing look at an upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 featuring an even scarier looking,  scarred and seemingly ailing Joker and Arkham inmates filling the streets of Gothan City. VGA viewers got a cinematic look at Halo Reach which introduced new Spartans in which one was female and another had a skull painted on his helmet. Release date for Halo Reach was set at Fall 2010. Not much plot was revealed, though one character mentions that the mission won’t involve “lone wolf” tactics. Other highlights from the show included a look at the new Tron Evolution game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 for 2010, the first look at Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and learned that Zachary Quinto (Heroes, Star Trek) will be one of the voices for the upcoming Star Trek Online.
