Finally, a headline about the Writer's Guild that's not about the strike
. The Writer's Guild of America announced nominees for its first-ever awards for video game writing. The winner will be announced on February 9th (but don't expect a fancy awards show). There were five nominees, including one high profile PSP exclusive. Crash of the Titans, The Simpsons Game, The Witcher, and World in Conflict all got nominations. Dead Head Fred
, a PSP exclusive, also earned a nomination. It was written by Dave Ellis and Adam Cogan.
Dead Head Fred had a fairly muted release, but was notable for its inclusion of a popular television actor from the show Scrubs.
