Heya! After getting used to Gamescom's area a lot more, you are more likely to find me at either the Nintendo Booth, Press/Business areas (whether you have access or near the entry) or the cosplay/merchandise area. Despite wearing my Luigi hat, I was at Nintendo's booth for only an hour or so today if you were trying to find me there. If anything, I usually like to be near the new Smash Bros games or Splatoon.
I have no internet there until I get back to my hotel, so I won't be able to read any messages until the end of the day if you plan to contact me during the day. The amount of reception usage there kills a lot of connectivity.
That being said, Gamescom is absolutely amazing so far! I'll be posting some photos and sharing some stories of really wonderful people that I have met there once I get the time during the event or until it's over.
See you there!
Update: I have decided that I'll be walking around with a Luigi hat on if you want to find me! It's all that I have, so I hope it stands me out from the crowd just a tiny bit. (I updated my dev ID if you're curious on what I'll look like during the event.) I'll be attending Gamescom all days except Sunday and I'll be hanging around Nintendo's area quite a bit more than the others, so for those who are coming, I'd love to meet up and say hi!
Hey guys! In just a few days now I will be arriving in Germany to attend Gamescom this year. It is Europe's equivalent of E3 in LA - just that it runs for two extra days. As always I will mostly be hanging around the Nintendo area. If you're attending and want to say hello, you know where to look for me! You can also keep an eye on Zelda Universe's twitter as we'll be tweeting while we're there.
Also, I was invited to Bergsala, which is the company that distributes Nintendo products in Sweden. I was given the grand tour of their offices and display area. It was really amazing and interesting to see the infrastructure, from their individual desks to meeting rooms, rare collectables in case displays, brand-new localised games and where everyone's broken-down consoles go to be repaired (I felt sorry for the one guy working on that specific job, because the amount of broken 3DSs and WiiUs that he had to fix in his office room was just ).
Here are some pictures of the office while I was there for the day:
There were so many more things, but there's only so much you can take on a camera and upload.
