Gamescom, the largest video game convention on the planet, is still going strong in Germany through the weekend. We've already heard and seen plenty, with more to come. There was also a healthy amount of stuff from GDC Europe, which took place prior to Gamescom in Cologne.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Recovering from Gamescom by writing Gamescom previews, which includes stuff like Anno 2070, Lollipop Chainsaw and more when I look through my notes. Won't be home until Sunday, so I won't be playing much of anything this weekend.
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Uhhhhh ... man, what aren't I playing? You already know about Modern Warfare 3 and Escape Plan, but I also spent time this week with Anarchy Reigns and Resistance: Burning Skies. Also playing, "Buy so, so many Haribo gummibears."
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): Last weekend was dedicated to BioShock 2's Minerva's Den DLC which, if you haven't played it, is excellent. Now I'm playing Duke Nukem Forever since my 16-year-old self insists on it. It's ... not so excellent.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'll be playing a bit of Child of Eden and attempting to wrap up these Summer of Arcade XBLA titles.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): Madden NFL 12. THIS IS WHO I AM NOW.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm playing Bloodrayne Betrayal, a game with a title to which only Nathan Explosion can do justice.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): School started this week, so I'll release some aggression with Black Ops. And maybe laser tag.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): They were all out of Road Boxer Triple Punch, so I had to get Street Fighter Third Strike.
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): I tried playing El Shaddai, but I ... didn't care for it. I don't know, maybe more Toy Soldiers: Cold War?
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'll be yelling at my wretched DSL connection until I'm hoarse. Oh, and I'm playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I'm trying to slog through disc 3 of LA Noire just so I can finish it.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): I gotsa finish Bastion. Maybe throw in a round of League of Legends and hopefully some more (real life) Carcassonne.
  • Steven Wong: Bastion this weekend.
