4257 Part 1 of the 2012 VGA Preview Podcast introduces CosmicBookNews' esteemed panel of gamers discussing this year’s nominations and categories according to Spike TV. 

Angry John, Emily the Siren, Kevin the Metabolic Man, Red Faction Casey, Better than Bublé Dan and yours truly, Giuseppe Jones, chat about the games that are worth our time and money (and especially those that don’t). 

In Part 1 of the podcast, the panel discusses Best Shooter, Best Action/Adventure, Best RPG and Best Graphics.  We also take a moment to discuss the curious category of Best Downloadable Game and why this should even be relevant considering how many games are, in fact, “downloadable.” 

The intro music is a mix track of the infamous “Black Baron” who consistently goes off on Spike TV’s nominees and winners in regards to the VGAs while the exit track is the theme music from The Walking Dead Game.
