Uncharted 3 Wins Writers Guild Award

The Writers Guild of America is a slight misnomer. In fact, there are two separate unions, WGA West and WGA East. But they work in tandem, and once a year they come together to celebrate the past year’s achievements in writing. The 2011 awards were presented on Sunday, February 19, in a simultaneous, shared event that took place in both New York and Los Angeles.

The WGA recognizes the place of video games and new media alongside the more traditional radio, film, and television. Last night’s award for Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing was presented to writer Amy Hennig, for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

This is the second time Hennig’s work on Nathan Drake’s globetrotting, treasure-hunting adventures has been honored with a WGA award. She also won a 2009 award (in February, 2010) for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Here are the rest of the nominees:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Story by Alexandre Amancio, Jean Guesdon, Corey May, Darby McDevitt; Multiplayer Story by Stéphane Blais, Richard Farrese, Jeffrey Yohalem; Lead Script Writer Darby McDevitt; Script Writers Richard Farrese, Nicholas Grimwood, Corey May, Jeffrey Yohalem; Greek and Turkish Ambient Dialogue Writer Vincenzo Beretta; Ubisoft

  • Batman: Arkham City, Lead Narrative Designer Paul Crocker; Story Written by Paul Dini, Paul Crocker and Sefton Hill; Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

  • Brink, Lead Writer Edward “Bongoboy” Stern; Bethesda Softworks

  • Mortal Kombat, Story by John Vogel, Brian Chard, Dominic Cianciolo, Alexander Barrentine, Jon Greenberg; Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

  • Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Written by Amy Hennig; Sony Computer Entertainment

Where Have All the Fight Clubs Gone?

So the other day I walked by a video game store in my neighborhood I had never seen in my life; probably because it’s next to a cleaners and used to look like a place that sold cell phones. I went in to check it out, and saw a flyer for a COD MW3 tournament being hosted right here in Rancho Chunkamunga California. Winners go on to a bigger tournament with huge prizes.

My first thought was to send a batch message to all the friends i knew that would be interested; but as the list got longer i started to think… And this isn’t to knock 1st person shooters cus I love them, but finding a Halo or whatever tournament is easier than finding an aspiring “event promoter” in L.A. I began to wonder why with all the popularity of fighting games like Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Tekken (and if you’re one of us, Killer Instinct 64) why dont I walk by windows advertising these type of “Fight Club” Tournaments? Is it not as popular as I may think it is? And what the hell do you do with a fighting game if you’re not checking names off your shit-list?

I mean… I’m a die hard Street Fighter fan, but how many of you have actually watched the little movies they give you at the end? I haven’t since the 90’s.

I’m in it for the spirit of competition and the GLORY(I know, dramatic right?) And I’m sure there are hoards of like minded gamers who can’t fly to korea to get involved in the bigger competition who would still like to feel a part of this large community.

We need more competitions with decent purses in Southern California, and everywhere else for that matter.

This is a call to arms for all fighting game lovers… We must fix this
