Gamescom kicks off this week in Cologne

Gamescom kicks off this week in Cologne, Germany. As with other summer conventions, lots of new things should be coming out of the show. We’ve got a few thoughts about things we hope to hear more about over the course of the week. Read on!

Here in the states we have E3, PAX, and GDC. Take all 3 of those shows, role them into one giant German schnitzle and you get Gamescom. One of the biggest conventions on the planet for video games and something Europe thrives on. The convention used to be held in former Eastern Block city of Leipzig, but for the last few years is hosted in the west side of Germany’s city of Cologne. The show is massive and fans, business folks, major publishers, and yes even Blizzard attend in full force. So with Gamescom kicking off this week we thought it would make sense to go through the top five things to look for at Gamescom this summer.

 

I spent a ton of my time playing video games.  Defeating goombas and slaying ninjas became an everyday activity.  But I lived for the boss fights!  It doesn’t matter what genre of game of you play, the big boss is always waiting around the corner  to put your skills to the ultimate tests.  With ArenaNet throwing dragons into Guild Wars 2, you will fight against one of the most powerful creatures in fantasy.  For me, the larger the enemy is, the more rewarding it is to bring them down.

The first time I faced off against a dragon it was an exciting experience, but when I ventured off to slay the other dragons they didn’t seem so tough.  Here I was fighting a dragon that could alter the very ground I stood on just be flying above it.  Why was this dragon standing on the ground so much?  Why was I able to stay alive so easily during the fight?  I’m fighting a great beats called the Shatterer!  My character should /wetpants whenever the dragon looks in its general direction!
