TGS 09: Here's what 185,030 gamers look like


7:20 PM on 09.29.2009



Only hours away from our Miami home, Colette and I have nested at our gate in a extremely icy cold Atlanta airport. We have zero hours of sleep, a serious case of jet-lag and a I can't get enough of the new CNN iPhone App. It's good to be back in America. Wolf Blitzer, you're so dreamy.

Sitting behind the loud roaring engines, in the far rear-end of our 14 hour flight, inspired me to get some much needed video editing done. Tokyo Game Show was quiet and uneventful for the first two press days. Lines were short in length and the show room floor blossomed with the smell of potpourri and daffodils. We also played the majority of the games displayed on the TGS floor back in Los Angeles at E3. OLD! When the "Tokyo Destructoid Crew of Doom" decided it would be a good idea to take a quick peek at the first public day on Saturday, things were radically different. Here's what 185,030 gamers look like crammed in one convention center. Oh, the humanity.

Did it hurt having a 5 foot long tripod stabbing into my chest, with a camera dangling over me like a carrot? Protip: Yes, yes it did.

Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II

A lot of you told me that you really liked Samus and Sagat episode one. Thank you so much! Even more of you told me that you almost didn't watch the show at all because you thought it was a cartoon. Sorry about that! To be 1...more

Dem bones: The best skeletons in video games

I've been playing tons of Grim Fandango ever since the remastered version came out a few days ago, and it's left me with skeletons on the brain... and in the closet. This led me to thinking about more skeletons in games. Ther...more
