A legitimate Gamescom article

I'm trying to get some kind of seriousness into my writing so today I'll write an actual article about how I personally experienced Gamescom. First off I'd like to point out that I didn't actually visit most of the booths because the lines were ridiculously long I mean who waits in a line for three hours for Resident Evil 6 when this game can clearly only let you down after the insanely good marketing behind it so far? I enjoyed every single trailer of RE 6 so intensely much that actually playing part of the game would just make me feel bad. A new trend also has seemingly arisen in these booths of recording how people react to what they see and putting it online into a stream, I have yet to see one of said streams but every booth had a sticker on it saying that this is being streamed live online somewhere and somehow. In one of the other areas there was a huge bunch of people gathering around a League of Legends moniter and a Starcraft monitor both having some tournaments shown on them that I really enjoyed. I like the state that pro-gaming is getting to and I really hope that people keep getting to the conclusion that it can be an insane amount of fun watching others play and be this good at it. Most of the things were really interesting and nicely arranged ranging from american game developers to more asian ones then to distributors such as steam and leading into the hall for progaming, above all that were some places for food and the meetingplace for most of the cosplayers though I didn't quite get how some animebased cosplays justify for the Gamescom considering that it is enterly based on gaming and just because there are Narutogames out there doesn't mean you all have to wear an Akatsuki mantle. The two things I couldn't touch in todays comic that were problems to me though have to be stated here first: Who the fuck stands 4 hours in a line for FIFA 2013?! I get the fun behind the game I really do but it's a game you play at home with friends so where'S the fun in anonymously playing it alone after 4 hours of wait while there are no big developments to be had in that genre?And my second problem: Why the hell didn't I go up to that cute cosplayer girl?I saw her three time MAN UP ALREADY T-T

-sorry for the length of todays article but thats how I roll,D.


  1. Is what your comic is saying true? You actually found the Nintendo booth? Wow, we've been looking for it for three days and were not able to see them. Damn, you're a god among players for that.

    Other than that: I can reassure you that Resident Evil 6 is actually quite good. Maybe not so much in the horror-department from what I've seen so far, but that may just be because I'm really used to that by now. But still, with only 4 hours of waiting time, you haven't seen the worst.

  2. There wasnt a big Nintendo booth per se but there was a place that had the Wii U I'm quite certain of that! Resident Evil has never really been my think and the adverts really show it more as some kind of emotional very threatening game which by all accounts RE has never really been, it's a lot less storydriven than most of the Horrorgames and the "there is no hope" campaign tries to sell it as something it really isn't.

  3. I would stand in line for 4 hours to play ac3 >.>
