What are you staring at, Tychus Findlay?

Leipzig gets ready for Europe's largest computer games trade fair, the Games Convention.

Don't be scared. In the photo above, it's just workers putting up gargantuan ads ahead of Europe's largest computer games trade fair, the Games Convention. The annual GC will be held at the trade fair center in Leipzig, Germany, from Wednesday through Sunday.

The show is essentially the European version of E3 (before that giant game show scaled way down). Last year, some 500 exhibitors from 28 countries converged on Leipzig to show the public their games and game-related products. The event drew more than 180,000 visitors. CNET News' sister site GameSpot will be covering the GC this year, so be sure to head over there to see what's going on.

Update 11:55 a.m. PDT: Webware associate editor Josh Lowensohn originally identified the grumpy guy staring out from the poster as Marcus Phoenix from the Gears of War series. However, due to the guidance of a wise reader, he now believes it to be Tychus Findlay from StarCraft 2 and excuses his error by saying, "Starcraft doesn't have chainsaw guns."
