And the winner is….

Last night saw the second official iteration of The Game Awards, a night to recognize and celebrate all the games and developers that keep us entertained year round. As was the case last and years before that with the now non-existent Spike Tv Video Game Awards, this yeas was not without its fare share of news worthy moments.

From subtle deceptions involving deadmau5 to some pretty big game trailers and announcements, here’s our roundup of what you missed if you didn’t tune in, in no particular order :

Psychonauts 2 is in development and it will be crowdfunded. The Campaign will launch on Fig with a goal of $3.3 Million.

There was a new character announced for Uncharted 4. Her name is Nadine Ross and she immediately kicks Drake’s ass.

 

Telltale is making a Batman game. The announcement came in the form of a short cinematic, leaving plenty to the imagination.

 

Shaq Fu: A legend reborn got a trailer. The game was successfully crowdfunded is 2014 and we’ve seen little of it since, until now.

 

Far Cry Primal showed off a gameplay trailer. Taming beast will play a large role according to the trailer.

Oculus Rift gets Rock Band VR, no official release date was announced for either.

Halo 5 will get a large updated for free that will include new Arena maps and forge.

 

Star Citizen showed off a new Alpha 2.0 Trailer.

 

The Walking Dead: Michonne showed off a short trailer for the 1st episode.

 

Bethesda announced that one lucky North American Elder Scrolls Online player will be given $1 Million dollars by simply filling in a form and logging in before 10 January 2015. So get your green cards and move over if you’re not already there.

 

Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break showed off a new trailer. Quantum Break will launch on April 5 2016

 

Shadow Complex Remastered is now free on PC and will be coming to Xbox One and PS4.

 

Konami blocked Hideo Kojima from entering The Game Awards. In a move seemingly akin to that of a school yard tussle, Hideo Kojima was informed last minute by Konami’s lawyers that he would not be allowed in. As with everything else in this debacle with Konami, the reasoning behind this is rather mysterious and will likely remain so until Kojima’s contractual obligations to Konami ends.

 

Rocket League is coming to Xbox one! The popular Steam and PS4 indie will finally be making it’s way to Xbox One!

 

The first Rise of the Tomb Raider DLC : Baba Yaga showed a very eerie trailer!

And of course, the last of the 10 promised world premieres was a Deadmau5 song.
