You know, the VGAs where you're going to see the debut of the new Resistance 3 trailer (I haven't even seen it yet), where God of War III will be contending for Game of the Year, and where who knows what other awesome things will happen? Those VGAs?
Well, like last year, we're holding a VGAs viewing party in LA, and you're invited [pointing at you]. We think fun experiences are best shared with friends - friends who are picking up the tab.
