Xbox One interface is clean, uncluttered photo
Xbox One interface is clean, uncluttered
by Dale North

Did you use the Xbox? Remember that interface? Are you laughing? It was pretty bad, as was the first Xbox 360 one. Blades gave way to a mess of boxes, bringing us to the point we're at now. I'm sure you'll agree we're not at a good place now when it comes to Xbox 360's UI. 

From what I've seen of the Xbox One interface, it seems that Microsoft has been listening to our gripes. I'd almost call the new one elegant. It's certainly clean and well-thought-out, and not unlike something you'd see on a mobile device.

D4, Swery65's Xbox One Kinect game, is wonderfully weird
by Dale North

Upcoming Xbox One title D4 was designed for use with Microsoft's Kinect sensor. Game director Hidetaka "Swery65" Suehiro made it a point to stress this during our Tokyo Game Show meeting. D4 can be played with a controller, but his personal preference is that you play it with Kinect.

When we saw all of the weird things you can do with your hands in D4, this makes perfect sense. D4 looks fun to play with Kinect controls.

Goron Tablet Cushion brings lazy to a whole new level

A small booth tucked against the wall on the Tokyo Game Show floor has regular demonstrations for their only product here, named Goron. This "tablet cushion" is essentially a head pillow with an arm mount for tablets or smart...

Deep Down is a free-to-play title

Capcom's upcoming next gen title Deep Down is a free-to-play title. Yeeeeeeep. Announced today at Tokyo Game Show, this PS4 game will see a public beta in February in Japan. Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this on Twitter, and now that tweet is bouncing around the universe, falling on confused ears. That...that is... Wow. But from what I saw this week I'll likely pay. Maybe.

Check out this short clip I filmed at Tokyo Game Show. It comes from a small area of Microsoft's booth where they're showing some popular games running on Surface units. While it's not exactly smooth, I'm surprised at how we...

Dead Rising 3 makes me happy with how crazy it is
by Dale North

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.

Lightning Returns at TGS: Open worlds, cool costumes photo
Lightning Returns at TGS: Open worlds, cool costumes
by Dale North

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 bit linear. Linear is a scary word after seeing how players reacted to the first Final Fantasy XIII game. But this new gameplay show here was totally open and free to explore. Oh, and I saved a chocobo's life. That's a pretty good day in Final Fantasy world.

Ready for more punishment? La-Mulana 2 announced

For all of the trouble Nigoro went through to remake La-Mulana and get the darn thing out on WiiWare and PC, I never thought a sequel would happen. I suppose the studio has proven itself, though -- it's come out stronger. La-...

Hands-on with the new PS Vita, remote play PS4 test

Forget about that short time I had with a retail demo unit last week. This week at Tokyo Game Show I've played with the new Vita multiple times with several different games. I've put it through its paces as best as I could here. I've even tested PS4-to-Vita remote play.

Read on for our impressions of the new PS Vita model.

Digging for depth in Deep Down photo
Digging for depth in Deep Down
by Dale North

Capcom are showing their upcoming next-gen game, Deep Down, to the public for the first time here at Tokyo Game Show. This game captured our imaginations following a brief tease during February's PS4 announcement in New York with its flashy visuals and mysterious concepts. Perhaps that's why the booth had wait times of 3 hours or more at Tokyo Game Show today.

I didn't have to wait, but if I did I would have been a bit disappointed by the TGS demo for Deep Down. It's not…well, deep at all. And it's short. It's a tease for a game that I'm hoping will be pretty good.

Deep Down is unquestionably my most-wanted next-gen title. It's not even close. This Tokyo Game Show trailer shows what Steven covered earlier today: future New York City, stabbing freaks, a multi-person battle with a dragon...
