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.
