The 3rd Annual New York Videogame Critics Circle Awards

As far as I’m personally concerned, last night’s award show ended up a resounding success.  I probably could’ve stood a little closer to the microphone during my award presentation, but hey – I didn’t fall down, I didn’t panic, I didn’t run screaming into the hallway.

Here’s a link to my segment (with some low audio, sorry!):

There was also an exclusive behind-the-scenes preview trailer shown for Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Part 2; it was rather spoiler-heavy, so I’ll link to this Eurogamer trailer breakdown, in case you don’t want to get, you know, spoiled.

I was also tremendously grateful to be able to apologize in person to Kotaku’s Evan Narcisse for my disastrous Left 4 Dead performance from a million years ago.

Here are the winners from last night’s show.  Looking over it now, I’m starting to wonder why I was so down on 2013 for most of the year; it turned out to be a rather stellar year.  And I’m really starting to want to revisit The Last of Us again…
