The new indie section of Tokyo Game Show was a breath of fresh air. Literally! CESA opened up a new hall this year for the public days of the show, adding a fair bit more room for exhibits and attractions.
Starting on the fir... more

The first showing of Dead Rising 3 looked good, but it also looked pretty serious. I feel in love with the franchise for its weirdness, so that first showing at E3 had me concerned. But from what I've seen at Tokyo Game Show this week, I'm no longer worried. Now I know that Dead Rising 3 is about as crazy as it gets. more
I like Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. I dug it from our very first hands-on preview, and I'm now I'm digging it even more after playing the new Tokyo Game Show floor demo.
Some felt that the first preview was a b... more
Sega is showing off new title Phantasy Star Nova at Tokyo Game Show this week. I know you'll instinctually hit the play button on the trailer -- and you should -- but the screenshots are the star of the show here. They look ... more
Being a Japanese trade show, there are plenty of mascots running around the Tokyo Game Show floor this week. We've put together a photo gallery of some of the better ones from today, the first business show day.

At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono was on hand to show off more of Capcom's PS4 exclusive Deep Down, which is looking more and more like Dark Souls (or perhaps Dark Souls 2). Though, counter to... more
The above trailer currently has 609 dislikes compared to 370 likes on Youtube. Something tells me that, two years later, people are still sore. That DmC just can't catch a break with fans.
I'm still pretty pumped, myse... more
[Update: According to GamesRadar, an English release might be possible. Hmmmmm...]
Guess what game wasn't playable at the Tokyo Game Show this year. Good guess if you said, "Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney"! Now, when will ... more
You knew it was coming! Every year, Tokyo Game Show sees a ton of cosplayers attend. As I was in the hallway where all the cosplayers were taking pictures for the very first time, I realized a couple of things. First, there a... more
Guys, I'm scared. Going around Japan for the past week has increased my urge to get into action-figure collecting. I even bought a Gundam in Akihabara! So imagine my excitement when I saw the finished looking version of Cybor... more
While I wish I could have stood around and looked at pretty girls all day, the Great Robot in the Sky sent me to Tokyo to write about videogames, so I had to enjoy them in passing, doing my best to snap a quick shot as I ran to my next appointment. These hastily snapped, semi-lit photos go against everything I've learned as a lifelong photo enthusiast. Forgive my quick and dirty job. more
My cynicism regarding the 3DS is well known by now, but you won't catch me sharing my robust skepticism when it comes to Nintendo's software. Luigi's Mansion 2 is a damn exciting prospect, and reminds me why I haven't thrown ... more

The beloved Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is heading to the PlayStation Vita. Expect new characters, weapons, skills, magics missions and more. NIS is looking at the Vita version as a "reincarnation" of Disgea 3 so while it... more

Here's a gallery of pictures from the TGS show floor so that you may enjoy the sights without the hassle of dodging people or fighting off heat exhaustion. You won't have to deal with the sweat or the pushing, either.
I saw a metallic-glittery baby blue PS Vita and fell in love instantly. I think the system looks great in any color, but the rainbow of different colors shown off at the Sony booth at Tokyo Game Show are beautiful. The purple... more
Does my arm hurt because I've been typing at pre-TGS events all day? Or is it because Ryu is all doubled over with that bloody, scarred arm of his, and that I'm the kind of guy that gets sympathy pain. He has the blood of the... more
Here are some screenshots from a port of a game that you played half a decade ago. It looks just like that game, to the point where posting screenshots feels incredibly silly. Ah well, who cares? Metal Gear Solid, guys!
In al... more
Outside of the Skyward Sword trailer shown at Nintendo's pre-Tokyo Game Show 3DS conference last night, I think there was only one other video (of which there were many) that caught my eye. It was the new Square Enix game Bra... more
Yesterday, we got to see the first ever Theatrhythm Final Fantasy trailer and I said it looked like the best Final Fantasy game to release in ages. Despite ensuing debate, I remain resolute in that opinion, and I bring screen... more

A p... more
We thought we'd take a break from the previews and news here at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show to show you a bit of what the main floor looks like. If you ask me, it seems that this year's showing is a tiny bit smaller than in prev... more

I knew there would be awesome stuff on sale at TGS, but I wasn't quite prepared for how badass it would be in person. Even the Square Enix booth had tons of stuff that they have not shown at their US shows, such as awesome Dr... more
I hope you enjoyed our first gallery of game ads on the street in Tokyo, and while I expect to see many more when we go to Akihabara this Sunday, I was certainly impressed with the ones at TGS itself. As we walked up to the e... more

Ever since playing the demo on Xbox Live, I have to say I've been anticipating Blacksite: Area 51 quite a bit. It didn't seem to do anything stunningly innovative, but what it did do, it appeared to do quite well. The game ju... more
