Wasn't Gamescom fun?
That's honestly a real question - I was off holidaying in parts of Europe that weren't Germany while it was happening and didn't really check in much.
Of all the news bits I've seen and dug from my inbox since getting home yesterday afternoon, the existance of Streets of Rage 4 is probably the most surprising, and potentially the most exciting. The brawler feels like it's gotten off of life support recently, and while balancing the difficulty of them seems a steep hill, they're a lot of fun with a friend.
Also, note that the visuals in this are done by Lizardcube, the team behind the excellent work in last year's Wonder Boy remaster. This one has potential to be a real treat.
