This is Gamescom. Or rather, this was Gamescom.

Germany's week-long celebration of all things video gaming, 140,000-square-meters, 275,000 people, visitors and exhibitors from 83 countries, all summed up neatly in a single one minute and fifty-one second video.

Were there games? Tons. But also cosplay, beach volleyball, off-road biking, motorcycle lessons, PC modding, news, previews, stories and finally, sweet, sweet sleep.

If you're interesting in digging into our coverage, check out the Gamescom stream which features more than 150 stories, interviews, press conferences, news, previews, hands-ons, galleries, videos, tales, yarns, briefs, articles and any other synonym for the cobbling together of words into narrative that you can think of.

And next year. Next year, you might want to reconsider your vacation plans.
