And that’s the end of another European news week. And with it, we’re near one week to gamescom. I’m pumped beyond belief for Cologne. Are you?

Just a final reminder: we’re closing our massive Battlefield 3 competition in about an hour or so. You definitely do not want to miss out on this. I mean, would you want to miss out on going to DICE in Stockholm and not play Battlefield 3? I hope not. You’ve got an hour to get your entry in.

In the meantime, the news. Here it is.

And that’s it. Now to finally get a harcut before Germany. At least, I hope I will before gamescom drags me down like it has all week. I should probably download the latest Brink DLC too while I’m at it. I actually might sort out a night on Brink with you guys if you’re up for it. I’ll post details on the forum if I ever get to it, and I’ll even drag Pat along as well.

Have a good weekend!
