The new PS Vita seems pretty nice

I thought I'd have to wait until later this week at Tokyo Game Show to get my hands on the newly announced PlayStation Vita model. But in doing my geek crawl of Tokyo yesterday I came across a display in Shinjuku for the new ...

Sony's giant Tokyo Game Show lineup revealed

Sony typically has the largest presence at Tokyo Game Show, and this list of titles they're bringing proves it. I love that they're even bringing indies like Octodad and Contrast with their heavy hitters. Here's the full list...

Microsoft will actually have a decent showing for TGS

Microsoft is returning to the Tokyo Game Show after skipping last year's show, and just having a really bad showing the year before. They'll be bringing with them these eight Xbox One titles: Titanfall, Crimson Dragon, FIFA 1...

Tokyo Game Show 2013's main visual: Limitless Evolution

Tokyo Game Show has released their main visual for 2013 this morning. As expected, it's some weird robot/game girl from illustrator Ippei Gyoubu. He's been responsible for the key art for TGS since 2010, and he never lets us ...

Monster Hunter 4 is a fast and ferocious beast

It's hard to describe just how popular Capcom's Monster Hunter series really is over here in Japan. It's no small feat considering how hardcore the games actually are. I find it fascinating that they've managed to find such m...

Tokyo Game Show 2012 beat last year's attendance

What a week! Tokyo Game Show 2012 is over, and we have a rather uprising amount of stories to show for it, actually. I went in not expecting to see too much from the show, but there were quite a few Japan-only games that had ...

TGS: It's all about Soul (Sacrifice, that is)

[With apologies to Billy Joel] Soul Sacrifice was certainly one of the biggest games at this year's Tokyo Game Show. I had a chance to play it on the show floor and, well, I'm confused. Demos are always a little bit confusing...

TGS: Amazing Farm takes next-gen gardening to new heights

I never thought I'd see a gardening game better than Odin Sphere, Waking Mars, or Harvest Moon, but Amazing Farm may just be it. Holy crap. Sitting on benches with gardening gnomes, talking to plants, and having a plant danc...

TGS: Open Me, open you, open everything in the room

Augmented Reality games are a neat thing, but there aren't a lot of them which have captured my interest beyond that. But I've finally found one that I'm really into in the Sony booth at Tokyo Game Show. Open Me is a game whe...

TGS: Enjoy six minutes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Namco is keeping a tight lid on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, but we managed to dangle a cameraman from a rope tied to the ceiling, sneaking past the tripwires. The above footage won't give you a good idea of ho...

TGS: And the winner of 2012's 'WTF Japan Award!?!' is ...

Food Practice System! After last year's Mommy Tummy, I assumed we'd have seen the last of the Serious Game developer group, but here we are with an even crazier, more inventive game that is both genius and hilariously goofy. ...

TGS: Phantasy Star Online 2 on the Vita is a great fit

I've put somewhere around 70 hours into the PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2. Despite being free to play, it's a fun and complex multiplayer title that's been getting a steady stream of updates since release. Having playe...

TGS: Picotto Knights is a free-to-play Castle Crashers

Castle Crashers became an international hit in a way no one expected an American indie game could achieve, so it's only natural for a Japanese game seemingly influenced by it to appear on the marketplace. Picotto Knights is ...

TGS: Rachet & Clank: FFA is not a return to form

When I read that Ratchet & Clank would gain a traditional third-person entry later this year, I pooped the bed. I literally pooped the bed and you should never poop in the bed. But, after playing the game, I deeply regret...

TGS: Gaming with Sony's HMZ-T2 3D headset

I had the chance to go face-on with Sony's new HMZ-T2 3D headset at Tokyo Game Show this week, putting it to the test as a face-worn gaming display. Sony dedicated a good sized portion of their booth to it this year in a push...

TGS: Suck my Brain Kiss

This ranks as being one of the most awkward experiences I've had this week at Tokyo Game Show. Brain Kiss is a sort of "Love Meter" application, using a brain scanning apparatus to determine your emotional interest in anothe...
