First I didn't want to go, then my mom said I have too and finally a guy who I haven't talked with in ages gave me a call and asked if we could meet at the Gamescom.
Who am I to turn this question down? And to be honest - I know it drives a lot of people insane, but I'm best if the planning is spontaneous. Surprisingly everything works best if I haven't had days or weeks before to plan every detail ahead.

DSC00122So at Friday morning I was on my way to Cologne (From my point of view it was an excellent choice that the Convention moved from Leipzig to North-Rhine-Westfalia - train tickets are cheaper.)
When I arrived, my first thought was: OMFGBBQ! Kabuki in heaven... Games, games and even more games. But I wasn't only there for personal entertainment.
Just had to find a way to combine pleasure and work.
Pleasure: Drooling over Games like Tekken 6, Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIV ...
Work: Meeting people, exchanging business cards, drinking coffee ...

Things I've learned: I can drink coffee, exchange cards and drool at the same time, except it involves Final Fantasy VII.
The apprehension, that fulfilled itself: I was weeping about my PC's Benchmark. And it's more then 13 days till Christmas.

One of my personal highlights was of course the new Guild Wars 2-Trailer. And if I only need a new PC for this game.

A shiver ran down my spine when I watched it for the first time. Seriously.

♥ Although the biggest personal highlight was the cellphone incident ♥ - I'm still pouncing about it.
DSC00120After lots of coffees, a horrible Pizza and even more coffee (and some biz'-talk) I finally left the Gamescom around 7:30pm to meet up with Sphinxeofthenile, Ice_Lady and Naurring. Three absolutely lovely ladies - and I think some people were kind of shocked, when they heard what we were talking about the whole time. To sum it up: It was for fiction-research XD. And I need the song, Ladies!
In the end a rabid plotbunny jumped at me around 3 am in the morning while we we were waiting for my train and dug it's vicious teeth deep into my already fried brain.
A bunny that still causes a major headache. Reeve Tuesti and Lazard in a Bar ...

I would have loved to stay for the whole weekend in Cologne, but to quote my favorite Warcraft-Orcs: 'Work, work, work...'
So I missed the attempts of a lot of Cosplayers to break the world record and lots of other fun stuff. One day isn't for sure enough to see everything - alone the waiting time in front of Blizzard's Diablo 3-Presentation was more than four hours (and that at 2 pm.)
And it's a completely different feeling to attend such a huge Convention as fan or with serious biz in mind. It was the first time for me, so it was really good that I was on my own - but I know for sure that next year I have to go twice (or buy a ticket for the whole week ^.^) and have to drag my Dad with me.

I'm a fangirl - my friends know my quirks. And well, my mobile plays the Turk-Theme.
I never thought that would bring me in the situation I was in today. my little fangirl ♥ is still pouncing
One of my boys told me that Yoshinori Kitase is at the Convention. And of course Kabuki had to run for an autograph. Just when I asked if he could sign me a piece of paper my phone rang. Not that it wasn't obvious that I'm a fangirl before *cough*. To cut a long story short, I ended up showing some of my images to one of my personal heroes. And it seemed like he liked 'em.

Edit: corrected some misspellings - the longer version of Kabuki on the loose in Cologne will follow soon.
Edit 2: Never try to edit something, when you're still half asleep ...

Stuck for one week now at home ... and I start to behave strange.

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Modern, Cool Nerd

61 % Nerd, 70% Geek, 22% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

it's f***ing lilac!!!
I believed it to be a joke when I saw IT the first time, but Sony seems to be dead serious.
Just check the trailers.
Cliches and more cliches. Give girls a Hannah Montana-Game and they're obviously happy...
I'm really not a bra-burning feminist, but this add-campaign is an epic!fail from my point of view.

Wasted a few seconds on the quiz and got the result, every nerd should have:


And now I have to reinstall Doom3
