I went to Germany once. I visited a castle, ate schnitzel – all things you should do as a guest of that fine country. However, the most fun I had was when my exchange family set up a massive LAN party and we played games for 12 hours straight! It was then and there I realized that Germany is ground zero for videogames.
So for this year’s gamescom conference, the Insomniac crew hopped across the pond to show off our anticipated fall titles, including Resistance 3. By now, you’ve probably seen the beautiful new Olly Moss-inspired trailer, right? If you haven’t, I’m giving you permission to stop reading this post for a second to watch it.
The gaming media also experience a new section of Resistance 3 behind closed doors, so expect new previews to start rolling in soon. Fans on the show floor were able to play a single-player demo of the game so they can get a feel for the riveting atmospheric action Resistance 3 has in store.
Meanwhile, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One showed up with its guns blazing in a new trailer showcasing the mischievous side of four-player co-op gameplay along with the banter that radiates from the dysfunctional foursome of Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious. If moving images are a little too exciting for you, check out these screenshots which tease the epic Wigwump battle in the game. Great, now my earthworm nightmares are going to crop back up again.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One was also on the show floor with a new demo for all the attendees to play and enjoy. From the looks of it, boatloads of people have been itching to get their hands on the co-op adventure. No, I mean literally boatloads of people. Look at this picture.
There you have it: gamescom 2011. Luckily, both of these games will be out soon. Resistance 3 drops on September 6th and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One lands on October 18th in North America. Be sure to preorder both titles in order to reap exclusive bonus content. You can also register at www.ratchetandclank.com to get some free PSN Avatars, Home t-shirts and Static Theme!

And with that, we leave you Germany. You are truly a country with gaming (and boats!) at its core. Au revoir! That’s German, right?
