Gamescom was the biggest yet, with thousands of people from around the globe flocking to the Koelnmesse centre in Cologne to check out upcoming games like Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. Unprepared for the sheer scale of the event, I arrived with a friend the day before it was to begin. Excited but tired, we checked into our hotel room and crashed in front of the TV in hope of finding something to watch. Sadly it was showing only porn (pick of the day was Anal Debauchery 2 - we hadn't seen the first) and movies like Sucker Punch at £10 a pop. We then decided to hunt down a HDMI cable to stream the only content we had on a laptop..... Two episodes of 80's cop show Miami Vice. A trip to a German Ikea and many meatballs later, we had failed to find a cable. However, we were probably the only two people to fly to Cologne for Gamescom and spend an entire evening attempting to watch Miami Vice.... I still don't quite understand why. Yet this adventure was mearly the calm before the storm, with the pair of us heading to Gamescom the following morning full of vigour. We joined the crowds of devoted gamers and journalists, all looking to play some of the best (and worst) games from around the globe. Featuring five gigantic halls full of gaming exhibits, presentations and even a retro-gaming museum - Gamescom is one of the biggest and best gaming events of the year. Here's part one of our Gamescom round-up, with some early hands-on impressions of this years biggest games.
