A strange thing has happened. Going through my notes on the games that I saw at this year’s Gamescom, I suddenly realised that the majority of stuff I saw was related to strategy games. Weird. Whilst I’d love to do a dedicated write on each of these games (they deserve it), unfortunately time is pressing.

I’m wondering if there are mafia connections or something. Now all we need is for Wargaming and 1C to get into a big gangster war, and then Michael Bay to make the film.
