Gaming around the world has come under the spotlight more this year than it has in previous years. There are many reasons for this ranging from social networking through to the global recession leaving fewer companies in the gaming industry and thus more emphasis going to fewer titles through to the sparsity of games meaning more emphasis on the limited good releases. From a social perspective, the growth experienced through companies taking advantage of the numerous easy to follow formats to keep in touch with their followers in the twittersphere and on Facebook has meant quicker message and information delivery, better availability of this information, and certainly easier communications back to developers and publishing companies which has been unheard of in the past. Add to this the evolution of technology and it’s daily influence on all our lives and whether it’s a phone, PC or gaming console we are have the availability to play a game at any time.
It’s been a busy week in gaming land, and during the weeks of the big shows one tends to get information overload. But that said, the various pieces of news are always exciting to read, hear and see, and Gamescon has been no exception for 2011 as it consolidated a lot of the news we saw at E3 and have seen in the last month or so since E3.
Battlefield 3 shone bright and came away with huge accolades from the show. This is even more good news for the ever popular franchise, and with the announcements they made, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that the development of BF3 is both fun and rewarding for EA and DICE as they get closer and closer to a beta and then release. The announcement of the commo/comm/communications rose being implemented into the game was more than likely a deal maker for many BF hardcore fans, but then they went and showed off. They brought out a trailer built from gameplay, and out came the jets. Oh the jets. Beautiful jets…… Aaaaaannnnddddd I’m back…… But they are beautiful…… The last major piece of awesome was the release of the facts sheet. Doing this is a very clever move from EA and I have nothing but respect for the marketing machine behind this game.
