While Dale North slaved away, covering the pre-TGS Sony Press Conference, Hamza and I traveled to Shinagawa, Tokyo to check out some Namco Bandai games, last week.

Since Hamza loves Gundam, I love the Tales series and everyone loves Pac-Man, we toured the epic M-shaped building (formerly the home of Panasonic) and took some photos. Check out the photo gallery for images of Namco's crazy cave/auditorium (the "Fun Theater), Tales concept art and the Gundam arcade pods employees hop-in during their lunch breaks. It's pretty much the type of crazy studio grounds you imagine in your head when you think of dream jobs.
