Alien: Isolation leads BAFTA Games Awards 2015 with six nominations


The BAFTA Games Awards nominees for the 2015 ceremony have been revealed, and lo and behold SEGA leads the pack with six nominations! Seems last year’s Alien: Isolation made quite the impression, as The Creative Assembly’s survival horror game is up for awards for Audio Achievement, Best Game, British Game, Game Design, Game Innovation, and Music. The slew of awards was no surprise to us here at SEGAbits, as we loved the game so much we gave it a glowing review and named it one of our favorite SEGA games of 2014. Congrats to SEGA and The Creative Assembly on the nominations, and stay tuned to SEGAbits to see how they cleaned up once the winners are revealed on March 12th!

Napoleon: Total War soundtrack nominated for Ivors award

The Ivor Novello awards, which only nominates British (or Irish) composers, is back this year. They do awards for stuff like TV, Movies and even, in our case, video games. Nominated for best game soundtrack? Napoleon: Total War.

So what’s the competition? Enslaved got nominated and so did 007: Blood Stone. Guess who the composer for the 007 game is? Richard Jacques, who also did a lot of music for SEGA, including the latest Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing soundtrack.
