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...

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: 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: 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: Ken's Rage 2 brings hot fisting action to the masses

I don’t know much about Fist of the North Star other than it’s very violent. I don’t know much about Dynasty Warriors other than there are a lot of dudes on screen to kill. That being said, Fist of the Nort...

TGS: Silent Hill: Book of Memories isn't heavy reading

Let's be honest: The Silent Hill name was tarnished long ago. Somewhere between that awful Hollywood film and The Room, a game that was never supposed to and never should have been a Silent Hill entry. Things have gotten even...

TGS: My Need for Speed Most Wanted 8-player race results

2nd place. But I was absolutely certain I'd score 1st in the 8-player multiplayer room they have set up here at Tokyo Game Show 2012. In covering this event for the last half decade or so I've learned that Japanese attendees ...

TGS: PS All-Stars stays fun while expanding roster

I've been waiting for new PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale character reveals with bated breath, but Sony didn't bring any new characters to TGS. What they did bring is a demo containing 12 characters and five stages, which...

TGS: Arachnophobic after Earth Defense Force 4

There's a new Earth Defense Force game on its way, recently announced by D3 Publisher and Sandlot, and there are few things here at Tokyo Game Show that I was more excited to see. Here on the show floor, the Xbox 360 version...

TGS: Kickin' it with Kazuma the cabbie in Yakuza 5

There's no questioning that Yakuza series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu is a badass of the highest order, but his first appearance in a Tokyo Game Show demo of upcoming PS3 game Yakuza 5 has him in a cab driver's uniform. Yep, the Dragon of Dojima is a taxi driver.  My first thought: Oh no they didn't!

TGS: Earth Defense Force 3 perhaps more awesome on Vita

I never tire of shooting giant bugs, so I was thrilled to see D3 publisher with not one, but two EDF titles on the Tokyo Game Show floor. Earth Defense Forces 3 Portable is port of the game we know as Earth Defense ...

TGS: Please give us Project X Zone right NOW

Namco Bandai's upcoming 3DS multi-company mashup, Project X Zone, is an absolute treat, and is one of the best things I've played at Tokyo Game Show 2012. It's too bad that it has yet to be announced for North America. After ...

TGS: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is wacky in a new way

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure was an odd fighting game for Capcom that was loved by many despite its flaws, in the West. In the East, however, it was one of the first videogames based off a very popular manga series. It's a series...
