The Combobulater & the Eurogamer Expo

Hey Everyone,

This week Burnsy and myself took a trip to Leeds to swim in the tide of over 2000 gamers that took part in the Eurogamer Expo 2009.

Armed with a camcorder we took a look at a host of games set for release in the near future, including Dante's Inferno, Left 4 Dead 2, Split Second, God of War 3 and more.

Check out part one of the video here.

*edit* Part two and part 3 are now live!! There is some slight audio issue where it is out of synch but nothing so harsh you'll be upset!! I hope :-D

In short the show didn't quite live up to our expectations, perhaps we were expecting too much from the event but the venue wasn't all that big so it didn't take long to absorb all that was there. Crowds populated certain areas more than others, it was hard work getting a look at Assassin's Creed 2 for instance and Dante's Inferno had steady interest. Surprisingly God of War 3 wasn't all that busy and nor was the Star Trek online area, though these were both housed in a seperate building so I do wonder how many people realised there was somewhere else to go!

Join us on the podcast this weekend where Burnsy and I will share our thoughts on the games we got to gaze at and those we had some hands on time with. If you're a gamer that likes to pick up as many of the top titles as you can then you're going to be very busy in the coming months!!

Nice video.

Wet has received atrocious reviews, so your comments are well-placed. Style over substance for sure.
