The weekend is upon us! Gamescom has provided us all with a ton of new and exciting news and in my opinion, has really gotten the hype train going on some of the major titles that are releasing over the next few months.

Gran Turismo 5, Halo Reach, F1 2010 – oh the goodness never ends, I think we are in line for a supremely awesome year of gaming.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were watching Natalia Portman kiss Mila Kunis in the totally unrelated Black Swan trailer.
