The final postcard from Gamescom sees Carl reflect upon meeting Chris Roberts and chatting about Star Citizen, Ragnar Tornquist is apparently obsessed with wangs, AssFlag might actually be the pirate game for which we've all been waiting, and Microsoft finally show us the Xbox One's UI and Kinect features.
Having survived Day 2 of Gamescom, now with the general public at the event, Matt and Carl share their highlights from out the Koelnmesse. We hear about the awesomeness of Titanfall, and how NBA 2K14 will retain its sporting crown. Elsewhere, we hear about COD: Ghosts' multiplayer offerings, we go over Everquest Next: Landmark's newly announced features, and we briefly tease what Harmonix have been working on with Disney Fantasia.
Wednesday saw the first day of Gamescom proper as the press and trade visitors descended upon the Koelnmesse in swarms. We give our overview of an eventful first day that saw us checking out the likes of Beyond: Two Souls, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Dark Souls, Wasteland 2, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Elsewhere, my microphone breaks, Toby proves to be huge hit with just about everyone, and we can't get the Peggle 2 music out of our heads.
Seriously, it's slowly driving me insane.
Recorded at the end of a long day of press conferences and showcases, we reflect on EA and Sony's presentations from Gamescom 2013 and we deliver some swift first impressions after getting hands-on with Ryse, Project Spark, and PEGGLE 2!!
Carl gets very excited by PopCap (actually, both of us do, it's a little erotic), and Siri tries to gatecrash the video postcard.
Bits and pieces of information have been dribbling out of Microsoft's showcase today and we take a little look at a few of the announcements, dishing out some initial impressions regarding the Fable Legends announcement, the news that European Xbox One pre-orders will also include a free copy of FIFA 14 while stocks last as well as the exclusive FUT Legends announcement, we marvel at a Ryse appearance that doesn't make us want to claw our eyes out, and we discuss the further details of Microsoft's plan for self-publishing as outlined this morning by Phil Harrison.
It's Gamescom week, folks! We've shipped both Matt and Carl our to Cologne, Germany to get hands-on with all the upcoming games and hardware, but before the madness begins we sat them both down to chat about what they were most looking forward to. Plus, everybody's favourite mascot, Toby The Dealspwny, makes an appearance!
Be sure to check back daily for more bite-sized video impressions from this year's show.
