The Ukie stand! Where we're living for the next few days. This year with a funfair theme, complete with candyfloss and hot dogs!
There's so much to buy here, and it's all untouched because it's not open to the public yet!
Seriously *so* much to buy.
The game on everyone's lips: Cyberpunk 2077
Some really quality figurines around, like Grom giving a kicking to Mannoroth.
The Swissgames section was by far one of the busiest in the business area. Everyone wants a bit of Switzerland.
And I'm sure America salutes you back, Vault-tec.
It's not a videogames conference without siege warfare.
A racing car, but real! What will they think of next.
Another big showing this year is South Korea, with an absolutely huge stand.
This guy just wanted a hug (Metro Exodus stand).
Ubisoft absolutely took over most of one of the larger rooms.
So much Ubisoft.
SO much Ubisoft.
There's lots to see, you won't get Bored-erlands.
*insert tears here*
Bit nervous around this one, I like to keep my brains inside my head.
The indie section is absolutely bustling, and will be even more so tomorrow!
