"Video Game Awards 2012," aka "VGA Ten," is Spike TV's tenth annual live televised event that pays tribute to the outstanding achievements of games, designers, animation, breakthrough technology, music and performances of the past year in the industry. The awards also provide a glimpse at the future of gaming, including exclusive sneak peeks and world premiere footage of some of the most anticipated games of 2013 and beyond.

Hosted by Samuel L. Jackson, "Video Game Awards 2012" will feature exclusive world premieres as well as musical performances by Linkin Park and Tenacious D. The interactive multi-platform special will premiere Live from Sony Picture Studios in Culver City, California.

Grammy Award-winning recording artists Linkin Park will perform a show-stopping rendition of "Castle of Glass," from their album "Living Things." "Castle of Glass" is also nominated for "Best Song in a Game" for EA's "Medal of Honor: Warfighter." Tenacious D will also return to the VGAs with a live performance of "Rize of the Fenix." This will mark the band's second VGA performance to date.

Exclusive world premieres debuting at "VGA Ten" include Naughty Dog's "The Last of Us," Epic Games' "Gears of War: Judgment" and Obsidian Entertainment's "South Park: The Stick of Truth."

Leading "VGA Ten," with seven nominations each are "Borderlands 2" (2K Games/Gearbox Software), "Halo 4" (Microsoft Studios/343 Industries) and "Journey" (Sony Computer Entertainment/thatgamecompany). Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed III," is not far behind with six nominations while Bethesda Softworks' "Dishonored," EA's "Mass Effect 3," and Telltale Games' "The Walking Dead: The Game" all have five nominations each.
