EU News Wrap, September 20 – What happened today
So yeah, Gears of War 3′s out now. And I have it. I should be preparing to go to London for EG Expo, but I get the feeling this, buying a backpack, sleeping and finishing a piece is going to take much of my time.
I honestly don’t know if there’s going to be a wrap from me tomorrow, considering I need to be out of here into Belfast to get my flight by early afternoon at the earliest, so for all intents and purposes, this’ll be the last one until next week.
There definitely will be a Bulletcast tomorrow, though, but not from me: Pat’s finally got everything sorted, and is back at full speed. As for a Bulletcast during the Expo, don’t hold your breath.
In the meantime, here’s the European news. With extra boom. Boom boom.
