Uncharted2

The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 13th Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences awards. The big winner in terms of nominations: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The PS3 exclusive title was nominated for 15 awards, and there are only 27 categories all together, so Drake could walk home with more than half of the awards at the show. Assassin's Creed II was nominated for 10 awards, and Modern Warfare 2 and Batman: Arkham Asylum each were nominated nine times.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to take place during the D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Summit 2010, on February 18 at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, with comedian, actor and gamer Jay Mohr returning for his fifth year as host.

While there are some choices on the full list of nominees I take issue with, overall, it actually seems pretty solid, and interesting.
