Countdown to Gamescom
It’s almost upon us, Gamescom begins on Wednesday 15th August for trade visitors and Thursday 16th August for all us regular folk. I’m eagerly getting ready to fly out to Cologne and will be spending a couple of days soaking up the atmosphere and checking out what new and exciting games and entertainment Gamescom has to offer. This year there are a massive 600 exhibitors in attendance, up 8% on 2011. According to Gamescom “More than 300 world, European and German premieres from every segment of the games world we be available to be played for the every first time in Cologne”, and with PC, console, online, browser and mobile games on show, there will be something for every gamer.
