Eurogamer 2012


50,000 gamers. More triple A titles than you shake a joystick at. One expo. And that expo of course was this years Eurogamer and as always, they certainly put on a show to be proud of. From the triple A titles such as Call Of Duty Black Ops 2, to the indie Prison Architect there was literally something for everyone available and Eurogamer certainly put the effort into making sure there both quality and quantity available.

The biggest queues were from the expo’s headliners – Call Of Duty Black Ops 2, the Wii U, Halo 4. Followed by some other fantastic games such as Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider, Dishonored and many, many more. The queues were worth persisting with however, as there was very little disappointment with every hands on – Keep your eye on our previews section for some more in depth views on some of the games mentioned above.

One section certainly worth mentioning was the fantastic Retro section – Which seemed the best of recent years. Packed with almost every console from your Atari’s to your dreamcasts, along with a number of bespoke arcades the Retro section proved very positive this year, particularly the classic multiplayers & beat ‘em ups.

All in all, Eurogamer and all those involved did a fantastic show this year, proving there’s still a lot of quality titles to hit this generation of consoles. Plus, there’s not many places in the world where you can casually walk past a Just Dance 4 dancing platform filled with Juliet Starling (from Lollipop Chainsaw) cosplayer’s and dismiss it as normal behavior.
