Two years ago in Episode 71, the Power Button crew discussed how Spike and Viacom could improve the Video Game Awards event. Now the media conglomorate has rebranded the VGAs as the VGX, updating the format and trying something different that still failed to live up to the potential of a gaming award show. On this episode of the podcast, Blake Grundman and I talk about how the VGX failed in many places, succeeded in a few others, and managed to embarass us all. Here's an hour of criticism for you.
