TGS cosplay nailed Sora's goofy ass clown shoes


Adorbs Ico, ass-kicking Street Fighter, Metal Gear and plenty of other cool costumes
Oct 06
Those Sora shoes at 30 seconds. The coolest, grossest thing. Also, we need some new filming techniques for cosplay videos beyond "slow mo, then drop the bass and spin around people a bunch." Where's the Citizen Kane of cosplay videos, you know?  Any of ya'll dressing up for Halloween? I'm going to be a joke.  read

And, Moira's really awkward at swearing
My time with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 at Tokyo Game Show was brief -- maybe 20 minutes if we're being generous. Swiftly dumped into the beginning of the game, I was left to try to unravel the mystery of what exactly ... read feature

Bladestorm lives up to its name, looks nice on PS4 and Xbox One


TGS Hands-on Steviews
Sep 18
I'd never played Bladestorm, the historical action/strategy title that seems to be a bit of a cult classic within the Dynasty Warriors type. It's still a bit odd that Koei Tecmo is reviving the 2007 PS3 and 360 game and that ... read

Last week we got a glimpse of Quiet's powers thanks to the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain teaser, and now the entire trailer out of TGS 2014 is available for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, it's in Japanese of course -- it's still plenty of unadulterated Metal Gear awesome, though. Hey, Quiet! Why you lookin' so down, homegirl? GamesHQMedia [YouTube] read

Microsoft's TGS lineup includes few Japanese games


'Why doesn't Xbox sell in Japan?' asked nobody ever.
Sep 09
Microsoft has revealed its Tokyo Game Show lineup, and one has to wonder how much it will resonate the crowd next week at the Makuhari Messe convention center. Japan has never embraced the Xbox brand, largely due to a lack of software designed to appeal to the local market, and a slate of titles like this doesn't figure to bring about a sea change. read
