My forth time at the Gamescom in Cologne and it's getting worse every year. Unfortunately they sell more tickets every year and it's impossible to play games which is ridiculous for a gaming fair. It took us one hour to get in which is fine. We waited two hours last year. We just walked through every hall of the 6 halls which are available for normal visitors. The halls 5-11 were open for everyone. They were big "blocks". You could play games inside of them but you had to wait for 2-3 hours to get in because the lines are so big. This were so enoying.
So we first went in the "Merchandise hall" in which we bought two shirts of the online station called "RocketbeansTV". We really love these guys (and girls). They talk about everything gaming, entertainment and nerd topics. We also had the chance to take some photos with them. They are so nice. I don't really like to ask for photos but they were taking photos with everyone so we just waited and also took one.
We bought a Crepe which was really good and we sat in front of a big screen and watched some RocketBeansTV. It was impossible to walk through the halls after 1pm because it was so full! We just watched some trailers at SquareEnix and really liked the new Final Fantasy which we need to buy in November.
Unfortunately this going to be my last Gamescom. It's to full and just walking and watching trailers isn't worth the stress. But is was nice to meat the Rocketbeans :)
