[Event] Gamescom 2012: I’ll be there.

Long time not written here which really makes me sad. I was busy with work and other things lately and I was lacking the motivation to write and update my blog. But let’s change that right now.

I wanted to announce that I will be at gamescom this year once again from the 16th until the 18th august. So enough time to play some new games and discover everything. We decided to go from Thursday until Saturday because it’s impossible to get much done during the weekend so we hope that there won’t be too many people at least tomorrow. A friend will accompany me and we will also take some time to go shopping in Cologne so 3 long days await us there. 😎

There are a few games that I really want to play, most of them are Playstation 3 games but I am also excited to play Dead Space 3 if there is a playable demo or maybe even a Wii U game like Zombi U also only if it is around. I’m not extremely excited for the Wii U itself and I hope that this might change my feelings towards it.

I also wanted to add that I’m glad that Sony announced at least a few new games, also for the Vita, during their conference yesterday: Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary, Until Dawn, Rain and Puppeteer. Most of these games sound really interesting and it’s nice to get totally new titles.
Something else they announced is the Cross Buy program: if you buy a PS3 game you will be able to get the Vita version for free and same goes for Vita to PS3 games. BUT this only works for a few chosen games so far like Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale or Sly Cooper for example. I really like the idea but of course if you get a PS Vita game, you will need space and if you don’t have enough space on your memory card, you’ll have to make some or buy another one… It would be really nice if these things were not so expensive.
Also, the fact that you will be able to use the PS Vita as a controller to play games like Little Big Planet on your PS3 is really interesting as well.
But all in all, these few announcements are interesting and Sony definitely wins points towards Microsoft and Nintendo who won’t even be at gamescom this year.

So much for my thoughts on a few gamescom related things. I guess I will go and pack some more. 😉
