Portal 2 Takes Game Of The Year From BAFTA

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts likes to give out awards to video games along with film and television. The only reason gaming isn’t part of the BAFTA acronym, is because BAFTVGA is unpronounceable.

You can see the whole list of recipients here, but here are some highlights. As referenced in the headline, Portal 2 took home game of the year honors as well as best design, and best story. Battlefield 3 took home game of the year honors from the public voters, along with best online. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet beat out Bastion and L.A. Noire for best debut game. Skyrim was heavily nominated, but didn’t actually take home any awards.

How do you feel about the winners? Portal 2 was my personal favorite in 2011, so I am always happy to see it receive accolades.

El Shaddai Teaser Site Could Be Teasing Anything

The hope is that it might be a new El Shaddai game, or some DLC, but really it could be anything.

You can see the teaser site by clicking here. According to Andriasang.com, the text seen below “Coming Soon” roughly translates to, “Who is the ultimate angel who God speaks of?” which isn’t particularly indicative of why there are five characters standing behind the text.

We liked El Shaddai a lot, and would love to see a sequel or more content, but this could be a teaser for more El Shaddai jeans, or some kind of concert, or just about anything, so we’re keeping our hopes in check.
