Gamescom

Gamescom could be considered the European equivalent of E3.  This is usually a time in which developers show off all their latest games and what is coming up in the future.  So I figured I would list a few things I've seen that are of interest to me personally.

First off is the announce of a PS4 version of both Journey and the Unfinished Swan.  Journey was an experience unlike anything that has come before, and I look forward to going through it again on the PS4.  I never got a chance to play Unfinished Swan, but I hear it is a spectacular game.

Next up I hear there will be some footage of No Man's Sky.  Now if only they would give a release date for that game, it needs to come out ASAP.

343 Industries has been fairly active at Gamescom this year, showcasing an HD version of a map from Halo 2 known as Sanctuary.  In addition the start date for Halo 5 Multiplayer Beta was revealed to start on December 29th and run for three weeks.  Given that Halo 5 will not be out until November 2015, that means this is a legitimate beta and not some promotional tool like most betas or "Alphas".

I'll update this post as I see more stuff of interest.  I know there were more games being announced, but lately there has only been a handful of games that I actually care about.  Perhaps I've reached a point where only certain kinds of games will be of any interest to me.
