We’re in Cologne, Germany for gamescom 2011. The flags are up. The stairs are postered. Here’s what’s happening.

It’s pump-time. As the games industry prepares to fly to LA for E3, we’re kicking off our coverage with the ultimate show report ahead of Monday’s press conferences: we’re liveblogging the entire week.

Satoru Iwata’s GDC keynote saw Nintendo announce 3DS wireless hotspots, a 3DS Netflix deal and a new Mario game, but focused on the concept of “must-have” developmment.

A Diablo III date? If it happens, you’ll hear it here first. Or maybe first-ish.

The 2010 Games Media Awards took place in London tonight, with some surprises.

Here we go again. Hot on the heels of Sony’s PS3 Slim announcement at GamesCom yesterday comes Microsoft with a 10.00am CET press conference.
Mr Molyneux’s involved. He said last night he’s going to show a new game. What on earth could it be?
That’s 9.00am UK time and dead o’clock if you’re in the US. Don’t miss it. Hit the link for updates.

The EA press conference liveblog is to start at GamesCom this afternoon oat 4.30pm German time. That’s 3.30pm if you’re in the UK.
We’re so excited we may actually throw up. Hit the link for all the updates.

This is it. We’re coming at you from a Cologne hotel room. We’re pumped. You’re pumped. Germany’s so pumped it can barely walk. EA’s GamesCom press conference takes place this afternoon at the Palladium, whatever that is, followed by the massively anticipated Sony presser.
We’ll be bringing you text and high quality images from both events. Here are full details of what to expect and when.
EA press conference – 4:30pm-5.30pm CET (3.30pm BST, 10.30am EST, 7.30am PST)
EA’s press briefing will take place at the Palladium, Schanzenstraße 36, Gebäude 197, 51063 Cologne. A live video stream will be available here.
Sony press conference – 6.30pm CET (5.30pm BST, 12.30pm EST, 9.30am PST)
The biggie. SCEE’s conference will take place at E-werk, 40 Schanzenstraße, 51063 Mülheim from 18.30-20.30pm local time. The conference itself is expected to last one hour from 7.00pm.
Do not miss a thing. We have staff on the ground in Germany and off-site in the US and Europe making sure that if it happens, it’ll be here. We will die trying. All of us.
See you then!

John Carmack just confirmed that a premium, subs-based service is on the way to QuakeLive.
The free-to-play shooter isn’t supportable on ad revenue alone, the developer said.
The game’s not in danger, Carmack assured, and it’s not a failure.
He said it would probably never become a completely non-free service.
JC was speaking in the Quakecon 2009 press conference. Hit our liveblog for more.

Here we go. The main Quakecon 2009 press conference is about to start, and Nathan’s in the crowd with his laptop, his fingers and his eyes.
What are we going to see? DOOM 4? Rage? New Fallout stuff?
Only one way to find out. Follow our liveblog of the entire thing here.

SCEE will show its Sony motion tech at Develop in Brighton this morning, and we’re liveblogging the session after the link.
The firm promises to show “a lot more about the new PS3 controller shown at E3,” giving “several real-world examples of such techniques as used in recent and soon to be released PS3 and PSP titles from both Sony Computer Entertainment first party and external developers.”
Missable? Not really. We’ll be filming it as well, so we’ll aim to get video live as soon as we can after it’s over.
The session runs from 11.00am-12.00pm BST.
Wed, Jul 15, 2009 | 16:32 BST
Media Molecule’s about to kick off its art keynote at Develop in Brighton. We’re covering it live after the break.
It’s co-founders Kareem and Mark in a talk titled “The Art of LittleBigPlanet”. Watch for hints on the franchise’s future. We hope.
Wed, Jul 15, 2009 | 12:09 BST
We’re coming to you live from Realtime Worlds boss Dave Jones’ keynote at Develop in Brighton. Hit the break for all the updates, pics included. The event kicks off at 9.30am BST.
Watch carefully for news on APB, and hopefully a first look at gameplay. If it happens, we’ll snap it.
We’re interviewing Dave later this morning, so we should have plenty more news on the upcoming MMO later.
Let’s do this thing, sucka.

It’s so on. Microsoft delivered a blistering E3 keynote in LA yesterday, leaving many shellshocked at the depth and quantity of its announcements and Sony with everything to do in its conference today.
PSP Go’s a cert, as are God of War III, Heavy Rain and the like, but what else? We could tell you what we know, but we’d be in mortal danger.
Don’t blink, for God’s sake. It’s make or break time. Nuke or die. Boom or bust.
The Sony E3 press conference starts at 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET. Get our liveblog after the break.
Tue, Jun 02, 2009 | 14:04 BST
It’s time. Nintendo will take to the E3 stage in Los Angeles today for its 2009 keynote, and the world’s watching with stern eyes.
The Kyoto monster came unstuck at the US show last year with a weak program centred on Wii Music, and there’s a lot to prove this time out. The hardcore want blood. Mario and Zelda blood. Wii Fit Plus blood. The thrill of the megaton. The flash’s heat. The desperate stench of plumber crotch.
If the sum total of today’s showing is Cammie “Pegs” Dunaway throwing a virtual Frisbee for a dog, there’ll be ugly scenes.
When? The fanboy massive holds its breath from 9.00am PST/5.00pm BST/6.00pm CET. Get our liveblog after the break.
Remember: the Sony conference follows directly after at 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET.
Mon, Jun 01, 2009 | 21:40 BST
Next up with its E3 press conference is EA, and we’ll be liveblogging it when it begins at 2.00pm PST/10.00pm BST/11.00pm CET.
We’ve already had a Crysis 2 announcement today, but will there be more surprises? You betcha.
Quite how anyone can expect to follow the Microsoft conference is a bit of a mystery, though. Get all the news from that here.

Update – We’re now live!
This is it! Microsoft will take to the stage at the USC Campus’ Galen Center at 10.30am PST this morning to deliver its E3 2009 keynote, and anticipation is running white hot.
Nathan’s on his way there now, so you’ll be able to read the whole thing as it happens, right here on VG247.
Forza 3, motion-sensing, a new Crackdown, Alan Wake, Halo ODST and many more are being heavily tipped for the event, as is some kind of exclusivity on Modern Warfare 2. You cannot miss this.
If you’re in the UK, it starts at 6.25pm BST, and that’s 7.25pm CET if you’re in mainland Europe.
The CoverItLive window’s through the link. We’ll put it live once Nathan’s up and running.
For details of sites streaming video live from the conference, hit this.
Don’t forget that EA’s conference is to follow at 2.00pm PST (that’s 10.00pm BST, 11.00pm CET), followed by Ubisoft at 5.00pm PST (that’s 1.00am BST and 2.00am CET). We’ll be liveblogging both.

It’s time. Mike’s got his Speedos and “Super Bunny” mask on. Steph’s been over-drinking preparatory coffee for weeks. Nathan’s so wired he’s only capable of muttering the words “airline” and “spreadsheet”. It’s E3. In LA. We’re going. You’re watching. You probably want to know when to tune in and what to expect.
Below are listed the press conference timings for next week. Note: All times are for west coast US (PST). That means you add eight hours for UK time (BST) or nine hours for Euro time (CET). We’ll be flagging up the conferences in the hours before they happen, so you shouldn’t get lost.
For planning purposes, though, here’s a run-down of what we’re liveblogging. This isn’t a definitive list of what’s happening at E3 – this is just the stuff you can watch here live.
Monday, June 1
10.30am – Microsoft press conference
2.00pm – EA press conference
5.00pm – Ubisoft press conference
Tuesday, June 2
9.00am – Nintendo press conference
11.00am – Sony press conference
6.00pm – 7.30pm – Miyamoto round-table (Note – We’re a little unclear what format this is going to take or how it’s going to pan out, but we’ll do our best)
Wednesday, June 3
3.00pm – Konami press conference (Note – We very well may not be able to liveblog this. We’ll keep you updated)
Obviously, we’ll be bringing you a head-fucking amount of news from the showfloor, so keep it locked VG247. We will never tire. We will never surrender.
Any questions, pop them in the comments.

Why not? The Lionhead boss has already said he’s not going to announce a new game at GDC this year, but he’s always worth watching.
Who knows? He’s British Development’s greatest showman, and he may well talked about the Fable II DLC he confirmed yesterday, named See the Future.
You never know until you know.
Anyway. Get it all after the link. It runs from 2.30pm-3:30pm PST. That’s 9.30pm-10.30pm GMT.

It’s a relentless, GDC liveblogging rollercoaster, Batman. We’re coming at you live from Hideo Kojima’s GDC keynote in San Francisco.
To be sure: the speech starts at 10.30am PST and lasts for 90 minutes. That’s a 5.30pm GMT start, or 6.30pm CET if you’re on the mainland.
