Star Wars Identities Cologne

Star Wars Identities, the original Star Wars Exhibition traveling around the globe, was held at the Odysseum in Cologne.

R2-D2, Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon, Anakin’s full-sized Podracer and other favorites, like Yoda, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Stormtroopers, and Darth Vader, the collection features all six Star Wars movies as well as the ongoing television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

GamesCom 2012

I spent the last week in Cologne, to visit this year’s gamescom (fourth time now without visiting the Cologne Cathedral, next time for sure!) and like last year I got invited by different developers and publishers to watch a couple of presentations about upcoming games.

As always, to get more information about your favorite games, just visit the different gaming websites.

I also took some time to walk around and take some photos, most of them are from the press day, the public days this year were just too crowded.

Today, I visited the GamesCom in Cologne, Europe’s leading convention for PC and console games with nearly 400 exhibitors from all over the world.
