VideoGamer.com has claimed three nominations in the 2012 Games Media Awards, set to take place on Wednesday October 18 at Vinopolis.

After years of blood, sweat and lots of censoring, the VideoGamer.com Podcast has finally been awarded a nomination - well done to Neon and his merry band of usually willing podcasters.

It's also great news for Martin, whom after walking away with the Rising Star award in 2011 is now up for Specialist Writer. And new recruit Dave 'The Camel' Scammell proves that years of hard graft does get recognised, claiming a Rising Star nom.

Martin is also up for Top Tweeter, so it's probably worth following him - @squidmania
