Bafta game awards montage

So, will it be the super hero thrills of Batman: Arkham city, the physics-based spills of Portal 2, or the hard-boiled chills of LA Noire that dominate tonights Bafta video game awards ceremony?

The awards kick of at 9pm this evening, and we’ll be there to bring you live coverage as the 18 categories are decided. Batman and LA Noire are the most heavily nominated titles, but Uncharted 3, Portal 2 and LittleBigPlanet 2 are all up for multiple awards. You can check out the full nominations list at your leisure.

Joining the host Dara O’Briain will be a host of celebrity award presenters, including The Saturdays, Jonathan Ross and Adam Buxton. Video game luminary Ian Livingstone will also be handing out a gong.

Gamesblog contributor Simon Parkin will be running our liveblog of the event, complete with winner interviews, gossip and speculation. We’ll also have a live video feed of the event. We’ll provide links to both of those later. Meanwhile, I’ll be on the event floor recording interviews with various developers for the Tech Weekly podcast on Tuesday and trying not to drink too much champagne.

So open up two windows on your computer screen this evening, print out the nominations list and get ready for some Bafta video game award action!
