A lot of people seem to overlook the fact that Norman Reedus is not a stranger to video games. The Walking Dead actor recently portrayed himself along side Michael Rooker (who recently appeared in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Yundu) in Activision’s video game The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. We had a chance to interview Norman at Spike’s Video Game Awards and here is what he had to say.

For some odd reason, Metal Gear’s 25th Anniversary celebrations are still going on. Spike’s VGA 10 after party was actually the after party for the awards show coupled with MG 25th anniversary. Yes it’s strange as Konami already threw a party for them at PAX PRIME Seattle which I attended as well.
In any case, the event was filled with surprises. Oly and I met great people among the industry and got to party with the whole Konami crew. As expected, the awards show was long and once again over produced. Never the less, we still had a great time! Here are the pictures!
Spike TV today announced it nominees for its annual Video Game Awards show dubbed “VGA TEN” this year, celebrating it’s 10th year. Oly and I were honored to cover the event for you last year, and this year we are doing it again! The highly anticipated event is expected to draw a crowd of gaming fans from all over.
This year’s show will be hosted by Samuel L. Jackson, who’s recent appearance in last summer’s record breaking movie, “Marvel’s The Avengers” as Nick Fury is nothing short of awesome! He previously hosted the VGAs 3 times in 2005-2007.
â€œIâ€™m thrilled to once again preside over the biggest night of gaming,â€ said Jackson. â€œAnd to all the gamers out there â€“ you better circle the date right now and not make any plans that night â€“ you donâ€™t want to be that one guy among your friends who misses this show.â€
This year’s confirmed musical talent will be Grammy award winning artists Linkin Park, performing “Castle of Glass” as featured in “Medal of Honor: Warfighter”, as well as a performance by Tenacious D.
Leading â€œVGA TEN,â€ with seven nominations each are â€œBorderlands 2â€³ and â€œJourneyâ€ Ubisoftâ€™s â€œAssassinâ€™s Creed III,â€ is not far behind with six nominations while Bethesda Softworksâ€™ â€œDishonored,â€ EAâ€™s â€œMass Effect 3,â€ and Telltale Gamesâ€™ â€œThe Walking Dead: The Gameâ€ all have five nominations each.
Below are several of the nominees and categories for Spike TVâ€™s â€œVGA TEN.â€ For a full list, please go to VGA.spike.com.
