I used to read games sites each June and dream of going to E3, excited by the prospect of seeing and playing games before they were out. Now I’m old and excited by the prospect of going to bed. Times have changed in other ways, too: there’s now a big, European games show which is open to the public and at which you can see and play games before they’re out.
Gamescom happens each year in Cologne and takes place next week, August 18th-21st. We’ll be sending a crack team (Adam), but I was curious: are any of you planning on going as a member of the public?
