This week, we’re overloaded with good things – some are in this collection and some are being held over to next week’s – as we start forging our way through Gamescom. To quickly recap, Gamescom is pretty huge. Some people say it’s the largest gaming event in Europe, others that it’s the biggest in the whole world, but regardless of what measurement you use, it’s a pretty ginormous thing.
…and it’s an amazing thing, too – particularly for something that only started in 2009. Rather than being run by one particular company, it’s organised and put together by the German government (specifically, the Federal Association of Interactive Entertainment Software), and has provided a handy European stage for many major announcements over the years.
We’ve already seen a few more bombshells, and this year’s show’s barely started… It’s currently the middle of the night in Cologne, so here’s a bunch of good lookin’ screens to tide you over until tomorrow.
