The Eurogamer Expo 2012 approaches at frightening speed – I’m measured it with my Velocitometer, and it’s headed towards us at exactly 81.7 terawatts per nanoclick. Like I say, terrifying. If you’ve been holding off from attending due to its apparent focus on hiss-spit console games, you may be cheered to hear that its One True Format contents have increased exponentially. Avuncular DayZ bossman Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall will be holding a talk, and now EG have taken the wraps off the Rezzed PC and Inde Games Zone, an attempt to recreate some of the delightful amicable, laid-back mood of last month’s lovely, RPS co-headlined PC-only Rezzed show in Brighton.
This means some EXCELLENT and POTENTIALLY EXCELLENT PC games will be there. Hotline Miami! Prison Architect! Natural Selection 2! Guns of Icarus! Carrier Command: Gaea Mission! Imagine how awful it would be if I actually spoke like this! Yes! Would you like a cup of tea!
As per EE tradition, there’ll also be a new, improved Indie Games Arcade – the show’s biggest ever, and once again carrying a selection of indie games so good that we put Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s name in the close vicinity of them.
It’s not It is too late to have your own game considered for inclusion. [Edit - oops, sorry].
You can also point those darkly soulful eyes of yours at the full speaker line-up and names of other hiss-spit console games right here. The show runs from 27th-30th September at Earls Court, London, her majesty’s tyrannical island of malevolent glory ENGLAND, BRITAIN and tickets are probably somewhere around here.
Some of RPS will be there. We might even get drunk too. After the show, of course. Well, not ‘of course.’ I will almost certainly be at least partially drunk throughout.
