Gamescom 2012! I made a whole bunch pictures, mainly of booths because well, i'm pretty sure you know what a computer screen running a game looks like and footage of the new games can be found on youtube anyway.

Below a few pictures to get the idea of what Gamescom is and what you can see and do there.
yay I met Calyn and Coots!
Guildwars 2 stand, the booth looked very nice but kinda disappointing game wise. Couldnt play and they only had two small screens running the game, they didnt have any devs around either. Guess everyone is busy trying to fix the game!
Trion people playing Rift and sucking at it! Did notice some new stuff tho.
League of legends had quite the big booth where many many people were playing LoL, they also had some big Esport area, like the Starcraft one below.
Apparantly there was also THE BEST SC PLAYER IN THE WORLD there, Calyn got really excited and wanted to touch him, after he told me that I had been looking at the wrong Asian for 10minutes I almost got excited!
We played some Planetside2, that game looked pretty cool tbh! Gonna follow that.
Firefall, little Planetside2 ripoff but bith more focused on traditional mmo stuff?
WoW booth, big but empty.
Starcraft2 booth, loads of computers to play the game on!
Aion, free to play! Apparantly still going strong(?)
Weird looking char, no clue, could be Borderlands 2?
Borderlands 2, they had some closed booth (there were quite a few of those), so you had to get in line and then maybe play or maybe just look at some trailer inside and hear some guy talk.
DayZ! with the latest mod or something, we saw dogs running around with players. Looked interesting.
Playstation world! Only thing that looked interesting there were the big comfy seats.
Ubisoft! Didnt wanna stand in line there either.
RaiderZ or something, hadnt heard of it, looked like Tera/Aion mix. Some girl did alot of blabla in German to me and Coots and then Coots told her that I'm Dutch and she did the same blabla again in English. She was friendly, she also told us she had no clue what the game was about and was only there to hand out shit. Later on her friend gave us lots of weird shit with logo's on it.
I WAS SO TEMPTED TO BUY THIS!
Boothbabes! or well....the zombie kind, below a few that hadn't been infected yet!
And the best booth babe ever! R2D2 was whobbling around, attracting more attention then anything!
