WRUP: Gamescom rolls on


Gamescom, the world's biggest video game convention, is still going on in Germany through the weekend and the party will not stop... it can not stop. Our coverage continues, but our nightly hotel room podcasts with special guests are all wrapped up and available now.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Oh boy, time to get back to normal life after the Gamescom bubble. I'm really not sure what I'm playing. I have a ton of Hearthstone daily quests to do and I've got the new Naxx wing.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Going to keep pulling off strangers' pants in Akiba's Trip and heading back into the Moscow underground in Metro Redux.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): Hohokum and Bravely Default, mostly. I also got a copy of Panel de Pon (aka Tetris Attack) for the Super Famicom, which is a dangerous thing considering my months-long Planet Puzzle League addiction from a few years ago. Such a great series.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): Whether or not I'm playing anything depends on the humidity here. Anything above 70 percent and I'm ditching all electronics to go sit in the ocean.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): [...]
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): [...]
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): Persona 4 Golden a little, and then since we're getting to that time of year, I'll be getting my Madden fix.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): If I'm feeling up to wasting a lot more time, I just might try to crack that last puzzle in P.T. again. Other than that, I think I might continue my GameMaker education so I can do more than just *play* games.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Sleep: A Tale of Not Doing Stuff For a Bit
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): I just got beta access to Warmachine: Tactics so you KNOW I'm gonna be stompin steam-powered magic robots as much as I can. Other than that: the Iowa State Fair is going on, and I gotta eat me some big ol' turkey legs and deep-fried Oreos before stopping by to snap pics of the butter cow! Mmm-mm!
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): I shall venture forth in search of phatter lewt and worse dialog in Diablo III's Ultimate Evil Edition.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): Kirby Triple Deluxe and Bravely Default sound like a pretty good use of my plane rides home, but then again, so does sleeping for-almost-ever.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I cannot get enough Diablo 3 on PS4. I tried P.T. for a few minutes but then I NOPE'd outta that real fast.
