08.20.2011, 01:47 PM by Moran - For me, the Gamescom 2011 was the first and last! I never go back to Cologne, which are simply no match for the onslaught and the halls are all too confusing. But a great moment I had when I was in the Swtor snake, a developer Bioware came with a man to the people from the snake and asked everyone, "Have you seen the movies?" and "Do You Know This Man?". No one knew him and when he came to me and he asked me, I looked up and said only a brief Anakin?. This was Hayden Christensen and nobody except me has known him at the beginning xD. But unfortunately I only get a poster and no previous access to the game.
