Game BAFTA Nominees Announced

Award season is almost over, but let’s send some of last year’s greatest released out with a bang at the British Academy Game Awards (BAFTA). Journey could be set to receive even more acclaim, nominated in 8 of this year’s 17 categories, with Far Cry, Mass Effect and the Walking Dead also garnering attention. The event will be held in London on March 5th and trust me, if Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 doesn’t win for game innovation I will be so shocked that I may just enter a coma.
