IDN News – Post 100, Arkham Knight, Gamescom 2015, and Deals With Gold

So E3 is over, and Gamescom is now the next stop on the video game hype train. Gamescom takes place in Cologne, Germany in August 2015. I’ll be keeping my eye on the event and posting the news and conference details. I’ll add another heading by the E3 heading. Once PAX and Extra Life roll around, I might just turn that link into an Event’s drop down, to conserve space.

There hasn’t really been a ton of news, I guess because everyone has just been playing Batman Arkham Knight. My copy has arrived, so I hope to get the chance to play it, and then share my thoughts, next week.

Tomorrow is game night, so there should be some Twitch streams to checkout.

Beyond that, I’m still playing The Crew, and wrapping up BADLAND. Evolve has been a fun getaway into multiplayer mayhem, and Illestrader got himself a copy, so we’ll have some Let’s Plays of that.

Gamescom news and Gold Deals of the week conclude today, and I’ve still got some more to post over the next few days, to wrap up the week.
