EU News Wrap, September 5 – What happened today
Hello. We’re just about to put a lid on our gamescom stuff, but as one door from one event closes, we’re about to kick down two other doors for two more events: Tokyo Game Show and Eurogamer Expo. This is going to be a heavy finish to trade show season.
Pat’s got a Gears of War 3 piece that’ll should go up anytime soon, with more to come from him. Alas, there’ll also be a few more pieces from me too: expect to see a Darkness II piece at some point this week.
After that, it’s all go for Tokyo. Brenna’s pumped and so am I, even though I’m not going. I love TGS and last year didn’t disappoint: catch up on the happenings of 2010 here. And then get ready for next week in Japan.
And then, one other event, although a lot more closer to home this time, in the form of Eurogamer Expo. It’s now confirmed that me and Pat are rocking the show for the site, so be sure to watch for happenings in two weeks. If you see either of us at the show, say hi. We won’t bite – well, I do, but not much.
But before any of those can happen, we’re still here at our posts, giving you news. So here is said news.
