<bicilotti> Good evening lads and lasses and welcome to the AGS Awards 2012 ceremony!
<bicilotti> This is the show where the best games of the year are selected by *you*, the player!
<bicilotti> So, rejoice.
<bicilotti> Let me spend a few words on how this will work: for most of the ceremony the channel will be +m, which means only me and the announcers will be able to talk.
<bicilotti> When a winner is announced, I will set the channel to -m, which means you can clap (to make them developers feel the love).

-*- Ascovel exhales and puts on his best smile
<bicilotti> *Best Player Character
<Ascovel> :)
<Ascovel> Dear AGSirs and AGSirens...
<Ascovel> We all know why are we here.
<Ascovel> Some characters are players, and many players are characters.
<Ascovel> This award is dedicated to the ones that are both.
<Ascovel> The nominees for the best player character category are as follows:
<Ascovel> Ben Jordan from Ben Jordan Paranormal Investigator Case 8: Relics of the Past
<Ascovel> Gray from Gray
-*- Ascovel notices that his zipper is down
<Ascovel> Bennet from Resonance
<Ascovel> Roger Wilco from Space Quest Incinerations
<Ascovel> the Cat Lady from The Cat Lady
<Ascovel> The winner was first introduced to us with a beautiful internal monologue
<Ascovel> frought with insecurity and angst
<bicilotti> :)
<Ascovel> cause the character has a very gray persona
<Ascovel> an insufferable know-it-all
<Ascovel> that dresses up like a space janitor
-*- Ascovel adjusts the mic
<Ascovel> The winning character is...
-*- Ascovel strikes a Ben Jordan pose
<bicilotti> :o
<Ascovel> Ben Jordan!
<Grundislav> yay!
-*- bicilotti bows
<Grundislav> thanks everyone! I'm glad Ben Jordan didn't wear out over the course of 8 games
<Grundislav> and thanks for sticking with a character called BJ
<bicilotti> as Ascovel noted, a well deserved award for his last case!
<qptain_Nemo> indeed
<Ascovel> Trivia: Sadly we part our with Ben Jordan, but he may still cameo in Golden Rake and/or Back Door Man 2
<Grundislav> (Wake)
<bicilotti> BDM2 ftw!!!11!1!1!
<Grundislav> A Golden Rake is the sequel about gardening

<Ascovel> And so...
<Ascovel> It was 2012...
<Ascovel> ...The neverending winter
<Ascovel> ...The Great Depression
<Ascovel> But it was also a time of great stories.
<Ascovel> 5 stories in particular:
<Ascovel> 9 Months In by tzachs
-*- Ascovel thinks of his mom
<Ascovel> Ben Jordan Paranormal Investigator Case 8: Relics of the Past by Francisco Gonzalez
<bicilotti> ur mom jokes anyone?
<Ascovel> Resonance by Vince Twelve
<Ascovel> Space Quest Incinerations by Datadog
<Ascovel> The Cat Lady by Grim of Harvester Games
<Ascovel> But there was one particular story that RESONATED with the audience stronger than the others.
<qptain_Nemo> bicilotti, ur mom is so fat if she was a story she would be War And Peace?
<Ascovel> And that's why they called it...
-*- Ascovel twirls his moustache
<bicilotti> nice one qptain
-*- bicilotti votes for Ascovel as Best Announcer
<VinceTwelve> Wow, I really didn't know where you were going with that one, ascovel! I was chewing my nails...
-*- qptain_Nemo seconds bicilotti's vote
<VinceTwelve> I wrote the story over the course of a few years entirely in my head before putting it to paper.
<VinceTwelve> So... I'd like to thank my shower, where I do all my best story breaking!
-*- Ascovel wonders if they suspect he's only a robot stand-in brought in by biciotti
<bicilotti> do you sing in the shower?
<VinceTwelve> nope. just make up stories
<VinceTwelve> and masturbate
<VinceTwelve> CLAP

<bicilotti> and that's why I am a failure and you won stuff!
<Bulbapuck> WE LOVE YOU SHOWER!!!!!!
<Eric> qptain_Nemo: Your mom is so fat that if she were a story, she'd be the ground floor of the Empire State Building.
<Grundislav> hooray for shower inspiration!
<Stupot> Ditto on the shower thing. Some on my best philosophizing is done there.... as you can guess I don't show much.

<Peder> Resonance by Vince Twelve!! XD
<bicilotti> better than Titanic
<VinceTwelve> Woo! Again!
<VinceTwelve> Um... when you spend a really long time working on a game like this, you only see all the interactions in the game as lines of code and script. So, you really lose sight of whether it's fun or not.
<bicilotti> :c
<VinceTwelve> So, I'm really glad it came out well.
<bicilotti> :)
<VinceTwelve> And was fun and stuff.
<VinceTwelve> And stuff.
