    Awesome more coverage!!

    Some comments though - Boothbabes??? None?
    Second - I would like to read about your pictures, all of them except for the first one could have at least a paragraph or two . Please?

    Unfortunately, there was anyone on hand to fill me in on the FPS-dome thing, but it's basically a projector which fires a reversed image onto this paper dome which you stand on the other side of to give you peripheral vision. Unfortunately, the downside is that the image from inside feels a bit washed out and you can still clearly see the paper through the image if you follow me.

    As for the E-sports, well Intel has had a load of pro players up on stage pretty much constantly, mostly running high level raids by the looks of things and occasionally switching to something competitive. To be honest though, it was pretty dull and poorly attended whenever I swung by.

    What is going on in the picture with the (what looks like) projector and curved screen, is it as simple as it looks or is there more to it? The caption noted it was interesting yet I couldn't see anything about it in the write up?!

    EDIT: Thanks Joe (you must have been typing at the same time as me)

    All I saw of Alpha Protocol was gameplay, yeah :). Am planning to follow up for a full interview if things go right in the future.

    Simply that, to be honest, there isn't a lot to see besides sweaty men at PCs. The stuff behind closed doors is no photography and that's where the interesting stuff is. Luckily, there are lots of exclusive assets being handed out, so look forwards to those in the previews.

    Meanwhile you can check out the news section for a gallery of The Mods of GamesCom and The Cars of GamesCom. I did do another, Booth Babes of GamesCom, but it was (rightly) decided that Bit-tech.net is not The Sun Online.

    ahh thats a bummer, I think its wrong not to show pictures of booth babes, those girls works so hard for their company just to not be seen, we need to support them and their efforts by showing off how hard they worked with pictures. ^^
