Germany and Cologne gave us another serving of Gamescom, complete with Currywursts, Haxe, Krakauers, Bratwursts, Leberkäse, Blutwurst, and naturally Saurkraut to go with all the meats. Given the tropical heat, and the exhausting appointment schedule it was all I could handle.

The high point of the show was without a doubt Sony's press conference - where a whole range of new and exciting software was showcased - from Tearaway and Killzone Mercenary on PS Vita, to Rain and Puppeteer, Until Dawn and the inspired Wonderbook addition Digg's Nightcrawler.

Much like at E3, Ubisoft impressed with their line up, and Activision brought out a few early looks of games like Walking Dead and Deadpool.

As you'd expect strategy had a stronger presence than at E3 with games like Total War: Rome II, Company of Heroes 2, and Europa Universalis IV leading the way. Surprising then that EA choose this venue for the disappointing decision to turn Command & Conquer: Generals 2 into a free-to-play game.
