PS.Blog VGA 2009 viewing and meet-up
Do you live in or near Los Angeles? Come to the PlayStation.Blog VGA 2009 Meet-up and Viewing Party on Saturday, December 12, 2009.
Can you believe it was just three weeks ago when we let you know that UNCHARTED 2 and Naughty Dog were nominated in a ton of categories for the SPIKE 2009 Video Game Awards. Time sure has flown and the VGA 2009 show is almost here. In fact, it's TOMORROW, Saturday, December 12, so be sure to tune in to watch it live on SPIKE at 8 PM. To celebrate the awards show this year, PlayStation.Blog has something special up their sleeves for people in and near Los Angeles (or willing to travel here, of course) -- they've secured a location and set-up one of their world famous Meet-Ups that will also serve as a viewing party for the VGA 2009. Of course, this is right in our backyard (or is it front yard?) so to celebrate our leading EIGHT nominations, along with the other nine nominations by our friends within the PlayStation family, we're going to be there. We've already secured several Dogs to attend along with myself to meet our fans, sign your stuff, answer your questions and watch the VGA 2009 show, hoping we win! Chris and Jeff from the PlayStation.blog let me know that it's critical for anyone wanting to attend the meet-up to get there early as they can only let the first 100 people in to the event (not to mention they said something about something special for the early birds). You'll need your photo ID to get in to the event as well. Don't forget to bring your UNCHARTED 2 game, t-shirt, poster or anything else if you want it signed by the Dogs in attendance. As is usual for PlayStation.Blog events, they are taking care of us all right by making sure there is food, drinks and giveaways. RSVP now on their Facebook event page! Event Details: Saturday, December 12 from 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM (The 2009 VGA’s start at 5:00 PM) Capitol City (Main Dining Hall) 1615 N. Cahuenga Boulevard (map) Los Angeles, CA 90028 (323) 465.1750 There is valet parking, numerous lots nearby and metered street parking. Plan accordingly! While we're on the subject of award shows, tonight, Friday, December 11, is Machinima.com's first ever Inside Gaming Awards. Unfortunately it's a private event, but you can watch the proceedings on the Inside Gaming channel on December 15. We're up for another EIGHT awards there too -- so wish us luck!
