The unusual lack of updates from the Australian desk today has nothing to do with The Sims Social. Yes sirree. Those two things are completely unrelated.

Gosh have we had some good content this week; I hope you’ve all been checking out the excellent gamescom coverage from Johnny, Pat and Alex. We have absolutely loads more coming, probably for weeks and weeks, because we saw everything.

Well, I mean, I say “we”. I stayed at home. Sob.

Catch up on past gamescom madness with the US News Wrap, or delve further back in time with the EU News Wrap.

To everyone’s relief, Pat’s back at the Bulletcast helm, and will be along shortly to brighten your day.

Now, I have to go and, um, not play The Sims Social some more. Stace is on the case now, and… oh, I never noticed that rhyme before, I bet he hates it. Anyway, you’re in good hands.
