    Gamescom in Cologne

    I'm probably going to the Gamescom in Cologne this year, the biggest games event in Europe. It was usually in Leipzig, but since last year it's hold in Cologne. I'm looking for an hotel today, and will then go there from Saturday until Sunday. It's only 200km for me, and as my girlfriend likes to travel, wherever that is, I will probably go. I also will make some nice pictures.

    My girlfriend checked some pages on the internet, and finally found the site http://de.otel.com/ where she got the room for 125 plus breakfast, instead of the normal 200 without breakfast (breakfast is 22/person). It's in the very centre of Cologne, and only 3km away from the Koeln Messe where the exhibition is.

    Sorry... missed this thread until now. I was away on holiday camping until the 23rd August.. The hotel in your link looks very nice. Was it as good as it looked?

    And I've not been to one of the big game expos in years. Was it still large and well organised? Lots of well know exhibitors? And did you get to see many exclusive release previews and up coming hardware releases? Anything you liked the look of?

    BTW, you picture link doesn't work. Goes to Myspace and asked to log in. Could you upload them to this thread as an attachment?

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    The hotel was gorgeous, room of 40 square meters plus huge bathroom with rainshower. And the hotel is just across the street of the cathedral, so that's in the middle of the centre.

    I was quite large, 4 different halls big like a football field. And there was every well known company that I know, EA of course had the biggest "stand", with a HUGE screen, and 2 nice cars, a Lamborghini Reventon and a Pagani Zonda.

    I didn't go to any previews or something like that, as you had to wait for 2 hours in a queue.

    I got a FFXIV beta key, gonna try that next week.

    I checked out the Playstation Move system and the XBox360 Kinect, and have to say that I was more convinced by latter. The Move system is like the Wii, you still have something in your hand, but with the Kinect you can move free, without an annoying controller.

    One game that really got my attention was Enslaved, it looked very good. I watched people play, and it seems that it's gonna be very nice.

    You will see everything when I post the pictures, I don't have them with me now, gonna post them in this thread later.

    Wasn't your girlfriend with you though? So had to be a little careful taking pictures of the girls...

    Great picture of you with the Storm trooper!

    And a lot of pictures you took in total. Looked like a great event with a lot of exhibits. Did you get chance to see Dragon Age II running? That is one game I'm really looking forward to.
