Gamescom is almost over and, to finish on a high note, we talk to Oculus' head of content Jason Rubin, who tells us demos for the Rift headset will bring people back to physical retailers.
MCV @ Gamescom also speaks to CI Games, which wants to reach the heights of fellow Polish blockbusters Dying Light and The Witcher III with Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3.
Elsewhere, Telltale's head of creative communications Job Stauffer tells us about how the games industry should reconsider how it categorises genres, and publisher Dontnod talks about how Life is Strange has transformed the firm.
In addition, we talk to Respawn about Titanfall 2 and how the studio is treating the game like a new IP.
You can also read our previews of the most anticipated games of the year, including Sea of Thieves and Dishonored 2.
