Gamescom 2014 - wrapping it up!

Mon Aug 25, 2014, 7:45 AM

Now that I'm back home, recovered some photos and the event is over, I will share some pictures, experiences and stories of all the things that I did there right here!

Gamescom in Cologne, Germany was absolutely amazing! I personally loved it more than E3 this year. The community aspect of it was incredible and never have I seen so many people crowded around video games in my life (around 330,000+ people attended from 88 different countries!)

Here are some photos of the halls there:

Like I said, 330 000 people attended over the course of those 5 Gamescom days! It was insane!

Me about to play Super Smash Bros WiiU in front of a crowd with my Zelda Universe co-workers team.

Nintendo's main booth area. Here is a stage where the best Super Smash Bros players at Gamescom would battle it out for a medal for the crowd to see. I personally won two medals which was amazing! Fun fact: Super Smash Bros won the community gaming award at Gamescom, so I was super happy to hear that!

Meeting Mario! O:

Hyrule Warriors booth. This time Midna was playable in the demo as opposed to just having Link and Zelda playable at E3.

Some of the other halls before the crowd started to arrive!

A League of Legends live match of the best players! Check out that crowd!

I was mostly hanging around the Nintendo booth, business/press areas or the bottom floor which had all the cosplayers and merchandise stores while wearing my Luigi hat from time to time. And speaking of cosplayers, oh my gosh:

Me wearing a Pikachu hat amongst some of my team and amazing Link cosplayers!
Two of the Link cosplayers at the back on the far right are right here on deviantArt! Laovaan :iconlaovaan: is Hyrule Warriors Link and Echolox :iconecholox: is Wii U Link. Both were such amazing and friendly guys and you seriously need to check out their galleries for awesome cosplay/artworks! I also met up with Tulpen-Teufel :icontulpen-teufel: who was wearing a Metal Gear Solid costume with a giant exclamation mark on her head! It was quite incredible to meet others from deviantArt!

A Hyrule meet-up of most of the Zelda cosplayers at Gamescom! oOSilbervogelOo is the Zelda next to Zant! If you happen to be in any of these photos, please let me know so that I can have your username tagged here for recognition, thanks!

Being at Gamescom meant that I personally played some exciting games that are on their way to be released in the near future! I tried Occulus, The Evil Within, Evolve, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros WiiU/3DS, Hyrule Warriors, Monster Hunter 4, Captain Toad, Yoshi's Wooly World and other strange things such as a Pacman board game which was really cool!
I would write my own personal reviews about those games listed, but I'm afraid this journal will end up being too long xD

In conclusion, I haven't been to an event quite like Gamescom. Apart from the pain that you slowly get in your feet from the amount of steps that you take there per day (my 3DS estimated 17,000+ steps), Gamescom was totally worth it. Saying that it was incredible is an understatement. I'm not sure if I will make it there for next year, but we'll see what happens!
To read more in-depth about what happened at Gamescom, especially around Nintendo's booth, check out ZeldaUniverse's article about it!

Thank you for reading! See you at another convention in the near future!

Considered doing something for Hyrule Warriors in the style that you did your large-scale Skyward Sword artwork?

I personally think that your Zelda work is some of the best Zelda work on Deviantart! I really love the style you use and the pieces you make, they're just amazing! I wish I could draw like you! ;) (Wink) Keep up the amazing work, I would really love to see more! :) (Smile)
