EA Gamescom 2016 live report Finished

Thank the maker for EA, who's still willing to put on a show while others shy away. We're not sure exactly what form that show will take, mind, but we're at least guaranteed new details on Titanfall, Battlefield and FIFA. If we're lucky it'll be a repeat of EA Play just before E3, and we'll be treated to a lot of dubious celebs getting high while playing EA's line-up. Mesut Ozil taking on Reggie Yates at FIFA 17 while chewing mogadon? That'd do nicely. Join us here live from 6.15pm BST.

    Judging by Martin's comments this was EA at its best.
  • Nikanoru 11 months ago

    Surely someone at EA must have seen the place empty out and taken a lesson from this debacle? Surely?
  • chrisf 11 months ago

    did i miss it ?
  • marvzilla 11 months ago

    awks
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Having those 3rd person animations is really questionable
  • hulkamania78 11 months ago

    HBK reference the whole show is saved . good job buddy
  • ColJonSquall1 11 months ago

    Also funny how Sony is still behind in updating the store to actually offer the Titanfall 2 tech test. Still another hour and a half until they normally update.
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    Quite funny that a title that Microsoft still co-market is being played on PS4.
  • Unclebenny 11 months ago

    Did the awful Battlefield 1- pro- gamer-celebrities-on-drugs-mash-up teach EA nothing about presenting their games? This is worse becuas it doesn't have Snoop Dogg in it.
  • ColJonSquall1 11 months ago

    I guess they're afraid PC gamers will literally break their game, as PC gamers excluded from the tech test.
  • rep- 11 months ago

    I'm worried about Martin... No comments for quite some time.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Controller aiming is painful to watch

  • rep- 11 months ago

    Hardpoint was good. It wasn't king of the hill twat.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Is there even an audience any more?
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    I think he was afraid how the audience might answer. As in, honestly.
  • The_shlaaaag_returns 11 months ago

    "It'll be open to everyone." Except PC players. Prick.
  • yas_1 11 months ago

    that wasn't very polite. the titanfall guy asked how they were when they were introducing him and they just went right into questions about the game
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    If you listen carefully you can hear this tapping... it's morse code. "S O S send help - Tom"
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    Have a nice evening people. Im out of here.
  • Unclebenny 11 months ago

  • rep- 11 months ago

    The tech test is to upset PC players because it is only available on console ;)
  • ColJonSquall1 11 months ago

  • ColJonSquall1 11 months ago

    The crowd is burned out, they left to go play Titanfall 2, or any other game at Gamescom

    I actually think now they cant show any Battlefield or Titanfall stuff because everyone has left.
  • leehammond 11 months ago

    I feel for you Martin. I just saw this thanks for a GAF thread saying that this was a Fifa fest. I thought this was exaggerating slightly. I see it was not. Oh god.

    What do you call a man with a tortoise on his head?Mentally unbalanced

    The Lasagne Must Go On.
  • ShiftBreaker 11 months ago

    So, while we're all here suffering. Got any good jokes?
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    Something is not quite right with No Man's Sky as resolution goes. It's a special 1080p that doesn't look like it even with the new drivers.
  • Viperl0 11 months ago

    There are some fates worse than death.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    This is worse than when they kept saying "FUT"

    Bratterz - I know...the power of EA money.
  • -TheDarkSide- 11 months ago

    What if, at the centre of NMS universe....There's a recording of this stream?"The horror"!!! :-(
  • gribb 11 months ago

    @Bratterz mate you're destroying the illusion :D
  • jetfire10 11 months ago

    Any chance of mass effect this evening you reckon?
  • Dave_McCoy 11 months ago

    Has it all been about Fifa? I keep dipping in to see if the car crash is still going. It's more than a car crash though, it's becoming a horrible pile up on the M25
  • Sheetbike 11 months ago

    Practicing the banjo while waiting for this dross to end. Not a euphemism.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Has anyone else been playing No Man's sky upscaled to double resolution trying to get it not to look like it's 720p? I literally can't look at it until it's sorted. It's still blurry in 6880 x 2880
  • YoyoMcDingdong 11 months ago

    ZZzzzz ZZzzzzz ZZzzzzz
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    THAT DID NOT HAPPEN
  • IanHigton 11 months ago

    Sorry to break it to you but it's another EA conference in the centre of the galaxy.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    HE LIED ABOUT PLAYING FIFA
  • rep- 11 months ago

    Bratterz - Move on. It is the only way.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    So Martin, just what IS in the center of the Galaxy? Leave out no details.
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    Whoever reviews FIFA17 at EG should be forced to watch this and mark accordingly.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    And to think I used to work for those people.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    Nah, I'm not having that.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    Presenter: Where were you when you found out that you were on the cover of FIFA.Reus: I was with friends, just chillin'...*Long-ass pause*Reus: ...playing FIFA.
  • rep- 11 months ago

    Hopefully another Gold. We are doing well so far in Rio.
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    EG should take the moral highground and never attend EA press conferences again.
  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    @vert1go: Can't spell "fear" without EA.
  • rep- 11 months ago

    Someone tell Tom to "trip" over the plug and turn off the power.
  • spamdangled 11 months ago

    It's ok Martin, I have all of TNG on Netflix. I can watch it later.
  • blarty 11 months ago

    @rep- how much is 'later'? People need to know before their sanity escapes them....
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    As long as it's not that one with Picard and the bloody flute it's all mostly good.
  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    Time to go eat some lasagna.
  • Artulon 11 months ago

    Thanks for the tip Martin....got TNG on now!
  • -TheDarkSide- 11 months ago

    @rep- Sorry mate, only one bullet left... I'm saving it for myself.
  • Viperl0 11 months ago

    Filling in for Mass Effect
  • rep- 11 months ago

    At least Titanfall 2 and BF1 are on later.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    As long as there is fear in your heart, the conference will go on.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    None of us will live long and prosper after this so it doesn't matter. All hope is lost.
  • blarty 11 months ago

    We're looking to move towards an hour on this egregious shite.
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    this FUT has been going on for an hour. AN HOUR. What are EA thinking? They are pissing on the audience on and offline.
  • -TheDarkSide- 11 months ago

    Tom. Please storm the stage and unplug their telly.
  • Viperl0 11 months ago

    How long is this conference?
  • rep- 11 months ago

    Someone shoot me now.
  • abczyx 11 months ago

  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    woody in ho? That's disgusting.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    YOU WERE NOT PLAYING FIFA WHEN YOU FOUND OUT YOU LYING MAN
  • rep- 11 months ago

    I don't know who this guy is. Obviously he can't be a talented footballer as he doesn't play for Rangers.
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    They only way this could be improved is if a life size Titan is dropped on them and wipes them out.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Didn't they make a game about that guy with giants and stuff?
  • The_shlaaaag_returns 11 months ago

    *puts down tweezers*Marco Reus?! Ugh...*continues plucking*
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    Reus had an escort...someone might touch his hair.

    At least there's some eye candy on screen now./unzips
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    I'm so sad in my heart
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Well this just took a downturn.. No wait I can't go even further into the abyss
  • hulkamania78 11 months ago

    its quite possibly worse than that Joel McHale show with Jeff Kiely the other year wow
  • Artulon 11 months ago

    I have no idea who that man is....
  • abczyx 11 months ago

    Nah nah nah nah NAH. My reaction as well.
  • west72 11 months ago

    PLEASE MAKE IT STOP.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    These new Nvidia drivers I've had time to install are lovely on No Man's Sky even with that stupid SSE4.1 emulator trick, thanks EA for giving me this time.
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    Points if he opens Pele
  • spamdangled 11 months ago

    OMG STOP TALKING ABOUT FUCKING FUT I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

    It's moments like these that make you rethink the choices you've made in life.

  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    We clearly have a penchant for vivid, long lasting mental agony.
  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    FIFA is so EXCITING!
  • blarty 11 months ago

    FIFA.... Just FUT off.....
  • icematt12 11 months ago

    See, EG staff cares about their readers.
  • abczyx 11 months ago

    I mean, there are fewer menus in a fucking McDonalds than on this nonsense stream.
  • gribb 11 months ago

    Martin you are my bloody hero!
  • The_shlaaaag_returns 11 months ago

    I reckon I could pluck all my pubes out one-by-one with a pair of tweezers and they'd still be prattling on about FIFA.
  • Decks 11 months ago

    Wooo its zed!!
  • IanHigton 11 months ago

    I just made myself dinner. A lovely chilli with sweet potato noodles. Noodles made out of sweet potato! Whatever will they think of next?
  • abczyx 11 months ago

    The Journey at least looks interesting. But no, FUT menus.
  • spamdangled 11 months ago

    I think Martin wants to stop the running commentary :D
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    who are those people playing? Paid for actors? Family members of the developers? EA execs?
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    They'll spend all this time on this boring shite and there'll be five minutes of everything else.
  • Shporet 11 months ago

    And it's only FIFA, wait for the other EAsports games to be presented! :D
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    My life is draining away as I write. I close my eyes and all I see are FUT faces.
  • AoifeLockhart 11 months ago

    Oh my god, Martin's gone feral.
  • -TheDarkSide- 11 months ago

    All that empty space on the show floor.Come on, Tom. It's yearning to be danced on......I dare ya! :D
  • PsychoticPillow 11 months ago

    I'd rather have all the behind the scenes and concept art from E3

    @Bratterz: Give them a break, their job is on the line :p.
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    Cant see the incredible picture @Martin Robinson.
  • G-Lord 11 months ago

    Are there any other games coming up? I have to get to bed by 11 pm :p.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    See, EA is shrewd. They know we all have drivers to install and things to do. They're giving us the time.
  • icematt12 11 months ago

    Well I feel my soul has been sucked away. Someone at EA is going to be happy.
  • the-Axtor-show 11 months ago

    So to make it more interesting, throw prize money at it.
  • PsychoticPillow 11 months ago

    @vert1go I got an AMD driver waiting, might as well watch that instead
  • SurgicalOyster 11 months ago

    are people like Castro that have been gifted millions of coins and fifa points allowed to enter with the best teams?
  • -TheDarkSide- 11 months ago

    Noooo! It's like a B-Movie monster that refuses to die.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    Not after Pele.
  • Bratterz 11 months ago

    You can't call your own executives "special guests"
  • Mike1980 11 months ago

    So the special guest is another EA employee?
  • rep- 11 months ago

    "Great Job" Yeah, Peter.
  • Decks 11 months ago

    Pre-burns Freddy Kruger can suck my cock.
  • vert1go 11 months ago

    No better time to do these things than during EA.
  • abczyx 11 months ago

    This recap has told us everything those fuckheads did in 1/30th of the time.
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    If we all will it maybe some of the people behind will start throwing beer bottles at them?
  • rep- 11 months ago

    Martin - share the "amazing"
  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    @vert1go: Geez, I was just updating my Nvidia driver as well. What are the odds?
  • Artulon 11 months ago

    Piles is less excruciating than this.....
  • blarty 11 months ago

    Get Tom to wave on stream..... has to happen
  • SurgicalOyster 11 months ago

    Pele!
  • EnglishChips 11 months ago

    See I always thought FUT was pronounced "foot" until I heard EA say it in a conference and I was thinking "Nooo, no waay!"
  • PsychoticPillow 11 months ago

    So... what games does everyone want to show up this year?
  • Whizzo 11 months ago

    I think we've probably got time to watch the rest of the entire Olympics before this crap will end.
  • blarty 11 months ago

    London EA boy, Oi.... stop talking, you mug.... so we can actually move on, either that or move to the pub and talk this shite with your mates
  • Viperl0 11 months ago

    FFS Stop it now.

  • SurgicalOyster 11 months ago

    Does Spencer FC get Phil Spencer as paid DLC?

    How the fell have they managed to talk about about FUT for nearly half an hour?!

    STOP SAYING FUT NOBODY THINKS THAT SOUNDS LIKE A THING STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT

    With a FUT stream there is no sun, only darkness.

    SurgicalOyster - putting aside her swearing for a moment, I just get the feeling that she seems more connected to the games etc than a lot of very one dimensional presenters
  • Devil_N 11 months ago

    All those FIFA games seem to just blend together. The only one that sticks out to me is RTWC 98 for some reason.

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

15:41 By Martin Robinson

Oi oi! Who's up for some GAMESCOM! There ain't no party like a sausage party!

15:48 By Martin Robinson

I'm so pumped I've just downed a pot of coffee and am about to get down to do some push-ups in my garden in an effort to contain the excitement.

15:48 By Martin Robinson

(I'll be watching remotely from sunny Lewisham while Tom Phillips will be there on the floor for us).

15:49 By Martin Robinson

What to expect? Going from June's EA Play event, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

15:49 By Martin Robinson

Aside from some awkward celebrity cameos. But that's what we're all here for, right?

15:50 By Martin Robinson

Thankfully EA's already got some of that boring game stuff out the way, having already released its Battlefield 1 Gamescom trailer and teased the announcement of a beta for Titanfall 2 over that'll be taking place over the next two weekends.

15:51 By Martin Robinson

What does that leave? Nothing but wall-to-wall beat poetry about sports and walk-ons from sporting celebrities.

15:51 By Martin Robinson

Which is something I could watch for hours on end.

15:53 By Martin Robinson

For now, though, I'm going to try and calm myself with a cold shower. I'll see you back here just before kick-off!

16:54 By Martin Robinson

So, the other news from tonight's conference has just been announced. A Titanfall 2 open beta *will* be taking place this coming weekend and the weekend after on PS4 and Xbox One.

16:54 By Martin Robinson

I can't tell you anything about what's just been announced 'til 8pm tonight because embargoes lol.

16:55 By Martin Robinson

But anyway we'll have plenty of video of the maps and modes live then plus some of me waffling about it all. It's Titanfall. It's got robots in. It's good.

Scurrminator says:

Any chance you can sneak me in Martin? I'm sure EA wouldn't mind an Activision guy being there!

16:59 By Martin Robinson

I'm watching remotely, though I could sneak you into my house?

17:12 By Martin Robinson

Can I get a couple of games of Overwatch in before this all kicks off?

17:13 By Martin Robinson

Always. Always.

funkstar says:

martin, i hope you're watching for nipples again

17:44 By Martin Robinson

17:44 By Martin Robinson

Tom's on the show floor, where he's reporting that lots of people are awkwardly sitting around.

17:44 By Martin Robinson

EXCITING.

17:45 By Martin Robinson

No. But, er, stick around! It *might* be fun.

funkstar says:

are we actually expecting anything new?

17:53 By Martin Robinson

From previous experience, yes. The smell of teenage enthusiasm is much more overpowering there.

Tart says:

Does Gamescom smell as bad as E3?

17:58 By Martin Robinson

Blizzard's own Gamescom video has just wrapped.

17:58 By Martin Robinson

And it was *awful*. We did get confirmation of a new Overwatch map, mind.

17:58 By Martin Robinson

That and a whole load of nonsensical vapid noise. It has, at least, set the bar very low.

17:58 By Martin Robinson

Let's see EA limbo under it in just over 15 minutes.

18:01 By Tom Phillips

Hello from EA's press event room - I say room, it's a corner of the EA booth with lots of awkward journos standing around!

18:02 By Tom Phillips

There's a podium in the centre where we're hoping Peter Moore will speak or maybe do some kind of sexy dancing.

18:03 By Tom Phillips

No one's really sure how little we're going to get but a few gamepads are sat on the stage so some kind of live demo filler looks likely.

18:07 By Tom Phillips

Well, I'm not sure what the EA stream is showing for you guys at home but here we're having a lukewarm intro from Patrick Soderlund. Games in the spotlight today - well, no surprises: FeefifoFIFA, Battlefield, Titanfall

18:08 By Martin Robinson

Thanks, Tom. But what's he wearing?

18:11 By Tom Phillips

Shirt, one button open, smart trousers. Can confirm shirt was tucked.

18:12 By Martin Robinson

Good stuff, thanks for the update.

18:12 By Tom Phillips

It sounds like the live stream you'll see in 10 minutes will be footage from the booth, which we've just been told to go play on. I think that's it from here!

18:13 By Martin Robinson

That's a negative I'm afraid.

paulyates1 says:

Wait for it...

Any second now...

18:16 By Martin Robinson

*lets out slow, dry fart*

18:21 By Martin Robinson

I hope you're having as much fun as I am right now.

18:21 By Martin Robinson

Though I have used the time to reheat last night's cassoulet which I'm getting through right now.

Same here. Same everywhere.

I'm done with the cassoulet. I've got some honey and ginger ice cream in the freezer but I should probably save that for later.

18:26 By Martin Robinson

Can I squeeze in a game of Overwatch before this begins?

18:26 By Martin Robinson

Hey, the new Overwatch map might even be out by the time this begins.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

Oh wait!

18:31 By Martin Robinson

Oh no!

18:31 By Martin Robinson

It's begun, and part of me wishes it hadn't!

18:32 By Martin Robinson

'EA's kicking off Gamescom 2016 with some of the hottest news of the summer'. I hope they're done sometime before autumn.

18:33 By Martin Robinson

Screw nipplewatch, we've got our first bona fide tit of the show.

rep- says:

Who the fuck is that guy?

18:33 By Martin Robinson

FIFA Ultimate Team Champions is a new, new news thing.

18:35 By Martin Robinson

This is so, so awkward.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

We're kicking off with FUTFUTFUTFUTFUT.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

Haha I said kicking off that's a football thing right?

18:37 By Martin Robinson

This club remix of Blur's Song 2 that's soundtracking the trailer is new to me. It's kind of gross.

18:38 By Martin Robinson

Maybe it's just because I'm old and cranky and I haven't had my nap today.

18:39 By Martin Robinson

Spencer from Spencer FC - are they from the Evo-Stick North or something? - is taking us through this.

18:40 By Martin Robinson

Nick Channon, a man who makes video games and is likely to be more bearable than anyone else on this stream, is on stage to take us through what's new.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

The Frostbite engine is the big thing for this year's FIFA.

18:42 By Martin Robinson

Driven throughballs, active intelligence and more physical play are the innovations in this year's FIFA.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

I think they were the innovations a few years back too? God I've been doing this too long - it's all one big grey smear.

18:45 By Martin Robinson

Spencer FC, for those over 30 like me, isn't a football club.

18:45 By Martin Robinson

It's a man.

18:46 By Martin Robinson

FUT time. Futty fut fut.

18:47 By Oli Welsh

I can't believe they actually, officially pronounce it "futt".

18:48 By Martin Robinson

To cut to the chase, EA's just issued a press release about Ultimate Team.

18:48 By Martin Robinson

The short of it: 'This year's FUT adds squad-building challenges and FUT Champions.

'FUT Champions is daily knockout tournaments for in-game rewards. Through it, you get a chance to play in the Weekend League. There's a Monthly Leaderboard to work towards.

'If you get to the top spots on the leaderboard, you could get the chance to compete in the new FUT Championship Series. There's a $1.3m prize pool on offer. It all sounds like EA's trying to take FUT into the world of eSports.'

18:49 By Martin Robinson

Indefinitely. Forever.

Well, too long. That's for sure.

PsychoticPillow says:

How long will this stream go on for?

18:52 By Martin Robinson

Where's Pele when you need him?

18:52 By Martin Robinson

Oi!

IanHigton says:

This is even more boring than those car games you play, Martin.

18:54 By Martin Robinson

Everyone on this stream looks so confused. So lethargic. It's like the end of a really bad trip.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

I think I'm about to have a whitey. And I haven't smoked a thing.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Do you remember that time Pele told us about the Swedish girl that touched his hair?

18:56 By Martin Robinson

We were all so much happier then. Simpler, better times.

18:57 By Martin Robinson

At least at E3 we got to see Zac Efron and Jamie Foxx clearly off their tits while playing Battlefield.

18:58 By Martin Robinson

I know this is a bit lower rent, but can't they pump Max and O.B. from Hollyoaks with some PCP and get them playing Titanfall 2?

18:59 By Martin Robinson

Spencer FC, you're about to be relegated.

19:00 By Martin Robinson

Johnny's just pointed out that Spencer FC has a huge wodge of cue cards to get through.

19:01 By Martin Robinson

We could be here all night.

19:01 By Martin Robinson

Hang on, have we been here all night? I can see the sun, but maybe it's the morning already.

19:04 By Martin Robinson

Tom is on the show floor right now.

19:04 By Martin Robinson

And he's just shared something *amazing*.

19:05 By Martin Robinson

(which I'm now trying to upload)

19:05 By Martin Robinson

Before then, our special guest is... Peter Moore.

19:06 By Martin Robinson

Anyway, here are the scenes live from the floor where this is happening.

19:06 By Martin Robinson

19:07 By Martin Robinson

Just incredible.

19:08 By Tom Phillips

Update from the "show floor" - a lot of people are no longer in the building.

19:08 By Martin Robinson

Remember that time Peter's nipples stood out like fleshy bullets on-stage at EA Play earlier this year?

19:08 By Martin Robinson

Someone in wardrobe clearly does - he's been sheathed in a blue suit jacket.

19:09 By Martin Robinson

There is no-one there.

19:09 By Martin Robinson

Go home. Go be with your families and friends. Remind that someone special that you love them.

19:10 By Martin Robinson

Clip your toenails. Clean your ears. Chisel all that burnt-in cheese off your grill.

19:10 By Martin Robinson

Do something, anything other than this.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

There are almost 800 people on this page right now. I want all of you to go away and do something else. Close this tab.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

I can see how many people are on here. I won't be happy until that number's gone down to zero.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

Oh god it's just gone up.

19:12 By Martin Robinson

What is *wrong* with you people?

19:13 By Martin Robinson

I'm just going to curl up in the corner for a little bit. Please go away.

19:14 By Martin Robinson

I just drifted off. I had this terrible dream that I was watching a stream where they were showing off Kasabian-inspired football shirts.

19:15 By Martin Robinson

Oh god this is actually happening isn't it.

19:15 By Martin Robinson

Reus is being escorted through an empty showfloor to join them.

19:16 By Martin Robinson

Marco Reus, 27-year-old attacking midfielder for Dortmund. So Wikipedia tells me.

Artulon says:

I have no idea who that man is....

19:17 By Martin Robinson

'Let's make it interesting' says Spencer United. I think it's too late for that.

19:18 By Martin Robinson

I'm told that most people have left the event, and devs are filling the stations that were intended for attendees to play.

19:19 By Martin Robinson

Star Trek TNG is on Syfy at the moment.

19:19 By Martin Robinson

Just sayin'.

19:20 By Martin Robinson

Pretty good episode too.

19:20 By Martin Robinson

Fifth series, Picard and Data go to investigate a rumour that Spock's defected to the Romulans.

19:21 By Martin Robinson

You've missed the first 20 minutes but if you tune in now you'd get the gist.

19:21 By Martin Robinson

Women's Omnium tonight, too. Looking forward to that.

19:22 By Martin Robinson

Let's see, what else. There's One Foot in The Grave on Gold.

19:22 By Oli Welsh

I JUST GOT THE WARP REACTOR TAU BLUEPRINT.

19:22 By Martin Robinson

That's not a bad way to spend a Tuesday night.

19:23 By Martin Robinson

Oh god there's now even more of you on this page. What can we do to make you go away?

19:23 By Oli Welsh

Sorry to interrupt.

19:23 By Martin Robinson

What if I spoilt every big game that's out at the moment?

19:23 By Martin Robinson

What if I told you what happens in Harry Potter and The Cursed Child?

19:24 By Martin Robinson

I'll do it. I swear I will.

19:24 By Martin Robinson

I'll ruin everything for you. I'll tell you who Rey's parents are.

19:24 By Martin Robinson

Leave this page now, or everything will be meaningless to you.

19:26 By Martin Robinson

Aaaaaggghhh the number of people watching this live report has gone up again.

19:26 By Martin Robinson

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME.

19:26 By Martin Robinson

I have a family I want to see. Please. Spare me.

19:27 By Martin Robinson

Please, yes. Anything to lift the pain.

ShiftBreaker says:

So, while we're all here suffering. Got any good jokes?

19:28 By Martin Robinson

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

YoyoMcDingdong says:

this conference is a joke

19:30 By Martin Robinson

Hey, I had a sausage in my cassoulet earlier. What are the chances!

SurgicalOyster says:

i just made sausage pasta, thats a first during a live stream

19:31 By Martin Robinson

Friday 8am. I'm on it myself - without giving too much away it's really good this year.

gribb says:

Any Eurogamer folk want to fill us in on when F1 2016 is getting reviewed? Need to know if Codies have fulfilled their promises this year!

19:31 By Martin Robinson

Hang on. We're onto FIFA Mobile now.

19:32 By Martin Robinson

For my sanity, and for your own, I will be dialling out shortly.

19:32 By Martin Robinson

I'm only doing it because I care about you all.

19:32 By Martin Robinson

It really is a lovely evening out.

19:33 By Martin Robinson

Go for a walk, make the most of that glorious summer twilight.

19:34 By Martin Robinson

Enjoy life. It's short, make the most of it.

19:34 By Martin Robinson

I don't ever want to see you here again.

19:36 By Martin Robinson

'Don't go changin'' says Spencer Harriers as the FIFA section comes to an end. No, don't *you* ever change Spencer.

19:37 By Martin Robinson

Farewell, goodnight, god bless.

20:12 By Martin Robinson

Are you *still* here?

20:16 By Martin Robinson

If you're here for Titanfall, why not just watch some videos of me playing it really badly?

20:19 By Martin Robinson

We'll have more inspiring nonsense for you over the next few days (and while it's been a slow start there's some really juicy stuff inbound - trust me!) Have a grand evening. And sorry, I guess.
