Gamescom cancelled, will be an online-only event as Germany blocks public gatherings

Chalk another one on the board, team. Gamescom 2020 has been added to the illustrious list of events called off due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, nestled alongside the likes of E3 and GDC. But look on the bright side - while the Koelnmesse might be silent this August, Gamescom organisers this week announced plans to replace the on-site show with an entirely-online digital event.

Gamechat Is Go: Next RPS Brighton Social Next Friday

What's the point in watching all these big E3 announcements if you can't talk to like-minded souls about how exciting and/or appalling they are? Why, just this morning I tried to ask the builders who've been loudly renovating the house next door for four hundred weeks what they made of Transformers Devastation, but they just said something about Megan Fox's shorts then picked up some…

Feral Vector - formerly known as Bit Of Alright - is a UK games festival which hosts talks, games, experiments and elbow-rubbing from/with assorted cheerful and interesting developer types. It's curated by David Hayward, who organised the Leftfield Collection at EGX and Rezzed. Pip thought the last one was lovely. A slight change of plan for 2015 though: mindful that everything ever seems to happen…

Having just stepped into a church crypt I was confronted with the prospect of a talk on art and videogames. This could so easily be the opening sentence for a horror novel aimed at games journos or internet commenters.

GameCity Festival Returns To Nottingham Next Month

I was extremely disappointed to miss last year's GameCity. Everybody I've spoken to who was there speaks about it in reverent tones. Actually, scratch that, there's no reverence at all. It's happiness, the remembered joy of sharing a splendid, creative, social hobby with a wide array of pleasant people. I won't make the same mistake this year, although I'll probably only visit for one or…

Even though no-one plays games with a keyboard and mouse anymore, Blizzard's annual fan-con somehow attracts huge crowds and helps the Activision-owned developer to earn All The Money from PC games. They've just announced the 2013 (and seventh annual) Blizzcon, due this November in Anaheim, California, the United States of America, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, origin of sausage and chocolate chip…
