Watch the latest teasers for South Park, Titanfall, and Broken Age.

Geoff Keighley revealed several new tidbits about tomorrow’s VGX awards today.

First off, Community‘s Joel McHale will co-host the event alongside Geoff Keighley. You might remember him hosting Ubisoft’s E3 press conferences before Aisha Tyler.

Next, Keighley confirmed an indie game reveal for the broadcast.

“Tomorrow I’m personally excited to share with you our first ever indie game world premiere and game announcement at #VGX Very special game,” Keighley said in a tweet.

(Update: Looks like it might be from Joe Danger developer Hello Games.)

And finally, in a separate tweet, Keighley confirmed new footage for Destiny will be unveiled. Bungie added added that there will be “a new detail or two that you will be discussing.”

Outside of Twitter teases, GameTrailers.com went live with several teaser videos today. Watch those below.

    BETHESDA! *shakes fist*

    Oh well. The Division, Destiny, The Witcher 3 and Titanfall will make this event worth it.

    Plus whatever Nintendo is showing off. Unless it is Donkey Kong.

    • Tac-Mex

      According to Game Informer it is going to be an already announced Wii U game:

      http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/12/06/game-informer-partnering-with-vgx-for-live-stream.aspx

      So yeah, i don’t think that Nintendo will show anything new :/

      I really hope that Square-Enix announce a new Sleeping Dogs game, the first one was one of my favorite games this gen.

      • $83030187

        I’d be willing to settle for Bayonetta 2 or X. Shit, even Smash Bros.

        Anything but Donkey Kong. But I can totally picture Reggie going up after some mind-blowing reveal and being all like “CRANKY KONG YEAAAAAAH!!”.

        I think a new Deus Ex is more likely than Sleeping Dogs 2 right now, but who knows. We know a sequel is coming.

        • Tac-Mex

          I think that Smash will be at VGX, and they are going to announce Mii as playable character

          • MrFinalgamer

            oh god that would be hilarious XD

          • $83030187

            That would be almost as lame as Donkey Kong. I’d like to think that Nintendo knows they have to show up with someone a little more substantial at an event like this.

            But then again, they are Nintendo.

          • Budgiecat

            Rather Reggie as a character

  • EX+

    Man, the VGX is REALLY focusing on the games.
    I’m just interested in The Division, The Witcher 3 (sorta) and Zelda Wii U. Yes, I think Zelda is definitely gonna be there.

    • $83030187

      The Witcher 3 is going to blow minds. Count on it.

      • Dark_N11
        • $83030187

          CDPR to send every RPG maker back to the drawing boards.

          • Budgiecat

            Even Dragon Age Inquistion??

            • $83030187

              I think so. Still hyped for Dragon Age though. Can’t wait to see more of it.

              • Budgiecat

                Would like to see more of this Cyberpunk 2099 and Reborn RPG

                • $83030187

                  I don’t know about that Reborn RPG yet. Cyberpunk is going to be amazing though.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Well FF XV is still at the top of my want list. Even after finally watching the 4th part of Spoony’s FF XIII review yesterday. Good God he gets so many points on it right. I need to rewatch the whole thing and take a tally on how many things that game did wrong….

                    • $83030187

                      I’m looking forward to FFXV, but unlike most people here I’m not constantly obsessing over it and slowly driving myself insane.

                      Even after how much I disliked XIII, FFXV is still a day one purchase.

                    • EX+

                      You know it!
                      FF15 ftw!
                      Still, you have to admit that because that game isn’t coming anytime soon, we’re gonna have fill the void with some other games.

                    • EX+

                      Hey uh, Budgiecat?
                      Bad news. Someone left SE. It’s not Toriyama.
                      Akihiko Yoshida resigned.

                    • Budgiecat

                      I know

                      Why couldn’t it be Toriyama???

                    • EX+

                      I have NO clue. But seriously, he and Wada need the boot as soon as possible.

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      As a note, Wada’s been gone since June.

                    • EX+

                      He has? Because I thought he was the chairman of the board after Matsuda replaced him.

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      Ah. I thought you were under the impression that he was still CEO, since you put him with Toriyama. Yes, Wada is the chairman of the board.

                    • EX+

                      Yeah. But I really want that guy as far away from KH3 and FF15 as possible.

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      Honestly, this probably about as far as it gets until he retires or picks another industry.

                      On the bright side, as chairman of the board his involvement is at a broader level, so he’s beyond screwing up games like he could as CEO. Personally, I’m more worried about the new CEO. We haven’t really seen much out of him yet, so his influence is a bit of a mystery right now.

                    • EX+

                      I honestly think he’ll do SE Japan some justice this gen.
                      He seems to want to let Squaresoft’s following know about what’s going on with different games more, instead of the awkward silence.
                      Of course, FF15 isn’t at Jump Festa, but I can think of 2 or 3 reasons as to why.

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      I never expected XV at Jump Festa, so that’s understandable. But I guess time will tell if he’s an improvement over Wada.

                    • adhesive

                      Spoony gets a lot of things right, but for everything he gets right he nitpicks on a billion other things and shows complete ignorance on other subjects. I’m not going to defend Final Fantasy XIII, but Spoony is not a good critic.

      • EX+

        Of course it’s gonna be awesome. I just haven’t seen much of it yet and I really have NO history with the series.
        I think the PS4 (and if CDPR is able to the XBO) will run this game at native 1080p 30fps.

        • $83030187

          If you have a 360, I’d recommend picking up The Witcher 2. You can get it for like $20.

          However, that is a more linear game, while TW3 is going to be an open-world RPG (20% bigger than Skyrim).

          Bigger than Skyrim, 36 endings, over 30k lines of dialogue, over 50 hours worth of side-quests…

          I need it now.

          • EX+

            20% bigger than Skyrim… holy hell!

          • Zeigarnik

            The thing about the witcher series is that quest design is out of this world.Both the witcher 1 and 2 blew my mind.

            I really think the witcher 3 might be a phenomenon in the industry.Something that will change RPG standards.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Pretty CG art doesn’t always equal a good game, unfortunately :/

        • $83030187

          What are you talking about? The screen I posted isn’t CG.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Ah. I just opened it up. At first glance, I thought it was promotional artwork or something.

            Still, pretty graphics don’t make the game. They can help, but yeah… There are plenty of games that look really nice, but have horrible gameplay, lol.

            Oh and technically, that IS CG. It certainly isn’t hand drawn :p

            • $83030187

              But seeing as how The Witcher and The Witcher 2 are both fantastic games with large, die-hard followings, I really doubt the third entry is going to suddenly suck.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Ho boy… That is the WORST defense like EVER, lol. Allow me to introduce you to Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Megaman, etc.

                Plenty of series are run into the ground (or have been) after getting off the ground with a good start, man.

                • $83030187

                  But there are legitimate reasons for those franchises having failed entries.

                  Everyone knows why Devil May Cry 2 failed, and why Resident Evil 6 failed.

                  What reason could there possibly be for The Witcher 3 to fail?

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    I have no idea, but I don’t put anything past them these days.

                    • $83030187

                      Well, I remain confident that The Witcher 3 will be a fantastic gaming experience, and unless there is a tactical nuclear strike on Poland, I don’t see my prediction changing.

                      That, or Capcom or EA somehow buy them. Then I’d panic.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Well, as they say… All good things must come to an end.

                    • $83030187

                      Are you suggesting that someone should nuke Poland?!

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      What? No, lol.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Totally random, but whoa… We got new fancy arrows for upvoting and downvoting now :p

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Disqus has done a change into making them triangles

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      And now I don’t see them any more ._.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Me neither. They’ve gone, but I also hope that they don’t make another change to it

    • DarkLegacy
      • EX+

        Yep, I saw it. I already made a few comments on there.
        I’m not sure what it means for the actual game, but it looks cool.

        • DarkLegacy

          Agreed. But I don’t think it’s complete yet, because it needs colour on it. But it does look awesome, and I would buy it

    • Solomon_Kano

      According to Game Informer (who are partnering with Spike to stream the event), the Wii U game is one we already know about. I suppose they technically did announce Zelda Wii U already, but I’m thinking it’ll be something like Smash or Bayo 2 that we’ve actually seen.

      • EX+

        I agree tbh. But something in my gut just tells me that it’s Zelda. I could be wrong though.
        My main reason for thinking this is because Keighley retweeted a picture of the Master Sword that Fils-Aime posted.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Well, that’d certainly be big if it were. Guess we’ll see soon.

  • DarkLegacy

    I can’t wait to see The Division at VGX. That’s the game I am interested to see at VGX

    • Wolf Star

      Ikr?? Can’t wait for tomorrow :D

      • DarkLegacy

        Same. Even Jump Festa

        • Wolf Star

          Yea :)

          • DarkLegacy

            Is it me or have you noticed anything different with Disqus? You’ll probably see arrows that we click on to give a person an upvote or a downvote have been changed into triangles.

            And also: http://www.novacrystallis.com/2013/12/noctis-gets-his-own-play-arts-kai-figure-now-in-progress/

            • Wolf Star

              Yeah I see it too, triangles arrows.. It’s weird.

              • DarkLegacy

                I even went to the community and there were no comments there, but they’ve come back now. And the embed(Let me know if that’s an error) picture is invisible, but I can still upload a pic

                • Wolf Star

                  I can see the picture

                  • DarkLegacy

                    It did turn invisible, but I was able to upload it. And that was a weird change

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yeah it says “view” for the picture idk why? When I click view it shows me the picture.

              • EX+

                I noticed it too, yet now, the UI for Disqus looks normal.

                • DarkLegacy

                  And when you click your profile, you’ll see a difference with ‘following’. And the embed pic is invisible but I was still able to upload a pic

              • DarkLegacy

                And now they’ve gone

                • Wolf Star

                  Yeah now it’s gone.

                  • DarkLegacy

                    Hopefully it won’t comeback. And also, I hope the pic icon on the comment box doesn’t turn invisible, because that did turn invisible. And at least I was able to bring up pics from my file

  • MrFinalgamer

    so we got some bad news regarding one of the trailers for VGX

    http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2013/12/06/geoff-keighley-was-hoping-to-show-the-order-1886-footage-at-vgx-but-it-isnt-ready/

    hope they can get it ready by then though…but i kinda doubt it

    • EX+

      I don’t think they’ll have time. It’s tomorrow dude! Lol

    • MrRobbyM

      That’s a shame. It’s one of the few games I was hoping to see. That game might make me buy a Ps4. If released before FFXV that is, lol.

  • Impressionnant

    It’s crazy how this event turned from a joke to the big “announce your game” event. I blame you, Kojima and From.

    • MrFinalgamer

      in the matter of 1 year, no less. quite surprising (although i do kinda expect them to do their “funny” stunts here and there)

    • Gigus

      I’m just gonna wait for trailers to pop up on youtube so I don’t have to make myself suffer.
