DICE Award nominations go out

Developer DICE have handed out their yearly award nominations with Journey leading the way. The title garnered 11 nominations including Game of the Year.

TellTale's The Walking Dead episodic title came in second place with eight nominations. Ubisoft's open-world FPS title, Far Cry 3, had seven. Halo 4 had six, Borderlands 2 and Dishonored each received five nominations.
“As I look at the list of the 2012 finalist games, there is no doubt in my mind that every single nominated title strongly reflects the D.I.C.E. Awards moniker – Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain,” said Martin Rae, president of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

“Across all platforms and through deeply immersive experiences, our industry continues to outdo itself year over year, finding new and interesting ways to evolve and engage audiences.”
As far as the Game of the Year category goes, The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown are up for the award.

The 2013 DICE Summit will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 7.
