Gamescom 2015 was full of both endearing and baffling moments, ranging from Microsoft’s awesome presser to Star Wars Battlefront’s Fighter Squadron mode reveal and the utterly confusing Final Fantasy 15 demonstration. We had our favourite games for sure but there were plenty of other highlights to emerge from Gamescom, including some rather odd happenings relating to Fallout 4’s behind-closed-doors footage. While we’ll be exploring our top picks from Gamescom 2015 later, let’s take a look at some of more interesting events and occurrences at the event and immediately after its conclusion.

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15 Presentation Falls Flat

Remember when Square Enix promised a “major presence” for Final Fantasy 15 at Gamescom? What we actually got was a new cinematic trailer set before the game’s current events, Stella replaced by a new character named Lunafreya, vague details about everything other than the back-story surrounding the game and a bunch of illustrations. Yes, that’s right – there was no gameplay showcased. At least the publisher redeemed itself somewhat by announcing that Final Fantasy 15 would be out “before 2017” which pretty much confirms a 2016 release date. But still, having skipped E3 2015 for Gamescom and simply delivering…that? No bueno.
