Not bad at all! A Realm Reborn running on Surface at TGS

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-...

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.

Giving the PS Vita TV the full rundown
by Dale North

Seeing the little white Sony box that came out of nowhere last week was a top priority for us a Tokyo Game Show this week. I put the PS Vita TV through its paces today at the show, trying everything from PSP to streaming PS4 play out on it.

It does so many things, but does it do them all well?
