Power Button - Episode 20: Promising Titles From Gamescom
August 27, 2010
While Brad Hilderbrand, Joey Davidson, and I love our annual E3 experience, it's only proper that our European counterparts also get to enjoy a massive video game expo on their own home turf. Enter Gamescom in Germany with its own press conferences and product announcements. On this episode of Power Button we take a look at the new titles revealed at Gamescom that excite us and make us wish we had the time to jet off to Europe for a week just to see games such as Portal 2, BioShock Infinite, and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. That leads us into a discussion on why it's important that Europe hosts its own version of E3. It's forty-five minutes of humorously insightful conversation with the occasional hilarious derail.

Finally, next time after weeks of unintended teasing our old pal Garth Chouteau of PopCap Games returns to talk about the new versions of Plants vs Zombies for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS as well as Zuma Blitz and a new PopCap project about which you know nothing, plus Joey and I engage in a deep discussion about diegetic elements in gaming. Casual and core gamers alike will not want to miss our next episode.
