It’s that time of the year again where we invite our community to take part in the fun that is GamesCom.
We can’t take everyone so we have hand picked five guys that will share their experiences with you. They will be your eyes and ears on the ground with EA so if you have that Most Wanted Need for Speed question or a Tier 1 Medal of Honor question then these are the guys that will be able to get the answers for you!
They will be interviewing the producers & development team who have taken time out to exclusively talk to us about upcoming games – so if you would like a specific questions answered get involved and send them to us.
Each day we’ll be posting a daily blog from each of the team where you can read what they get up to and previews of all the upcoming games. We will be posting these as blogs across our official sites; Medal of Honor Warfighter, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Battlefield 3 and of course our very own http://www.ea.com/uk
We'll also be launching a brand new podcast so if you don't have time to browse through all this awesome content you can listen to the latest news on the go. If that wasn't enough Martyn will be giving his insights via a special EA flavoured V-log!
We will also be giving away lots of cool prizes so make sure you are following us to take part!
Dan aka @EA_ActionMan.
Hello everybody! I'm InTheLittleWood also known as Martyn.. That's how I open every video on my YouTube channel and luckily enough it works here too!
I'm a recent university graduate, jack of all trades type after studying Multimedia for 3 years. My true passion though has always been in entertaining people. I've been vlogging for years, I had a successful stab at radio presenting throughout my studies and now I'm playing (or being reduced to a blubbering mess by) games on the internet for a living.
I've built a positive, kind and strong community around my YouTube channel that branches out to my social networks & Twitch stream(s) all of which I'm @inthelittlewood on.
I play all sorts of games from Zelda to Minecraft, Battlefield 3 to The Binding Of Isaac and everything in between. I've also found joy in writing song parodies which have been very successful thanks to my friends at the Yogscast. I'm all about connecting with my audience and hopefully all of you.
If you have any questions for the developers at Gamescom this year, hit me up with them, I'm more happy to voice them for you!
Richard "Rax / Raxous" Burley has been gaming since 1984, yes really, he's actually that old. With a penchant for everything gameish; from his beloved Wizard of Wor on his treasured Atari 2600 to Battlefield 3: Close Quarters on his poor laptop, he is a true digital nomad, equally enthusiastic about RPG, FPS, RTS & MMOs be they on console, PC or smart phone. With far too many favourites through the years to bore you with let's just say he probably loves your favourite game too!
Having wondered the community gaming journalism wilderness for many moons he finally found a home at newbreview.com, hoping to evangelise to gamers of all abilities and experience levels about the joys and pitfalls of gaming, he has settled in nicely and now enjoys writing overly long speculative pieces about the future of this and that and occasionally delivering the odd review, news tip and game play guide on the side...
Outside gaming (is there such a place?) you're probably most likely to find him eating something whilst pondering suitably controversial opinion pieces, maybe wearing a fetching hat and almost certainly talking too loudly about something he knows far too little about... You can find him on Twitter as @Raxous.
Founded in 2007, the three times GMA nominated website Ready Up is staffed by industry professionals and passionate amateurs each bringing different skills such as writing, photography, web design and professional gaming to the site.
With a policy of maintaining roughly equal numbers of female and male staff, Ready Up provides the broadest range of experience you'll find in the industry utilising the experience of professional videogame journalists, games programmers and designers and prominent community members.
Dan is the Editor in Chief of Ready Up and game consultant for the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition book.
He is able to conjure up a passion for just about any genre of game, although his enthusiasm generally outweighs his skill unless it's an online game with a Medic class where he becomes a selfless angel of the Battlefield.
A sucker for a good story, Dan believes that Mass Effect's Mordin is the greatest hero to have ever lived. You can find him on Twitter as @ShoryuDan.
Ryan is a student and writer for GodisaGeek.com, occasionally popping onto the Godcast, the gaming podcast and not an evangelical sermon (unless your religion is video game-related, in which case, pull up a pew).
Currently studying for a degree in the Arts, Ryan also devotes his time to writing reviews, previews and features at GodisaGeek.
Whilst the EA SPORTS range of titles are a constant addiction, the thought of Need for Speed Most Wanted makes him salivate at the mouth!

Every once in a while a rare talent comes along to change the landscape of the gaming industry forever.
Intelligent, handsome, established in the industry and respected as a font of knowledge; Tom is none of these things, however he does like to talk, so we're sticking him behind the mic of our new podcast to bring you all the news from Gamescom. Who knows, there may even be some special guests thrown in along the way.
Tom's work last year at Gamescom, earned him the title of "Mr 25k" after single-handedly crafting the video contest named 'Go Prone', the resounding success of this has forced our hand into inviting him back for yet another year! You can find him on Twitter as @ClacTom
If you want to know what we reported on last year you can do so by looking at our GamesCom 2011 news.
