TGS 09: So this totally happened at Tokyo Game Show

What the hell, right?

If you've already watched the above video, I bet you've come back for some context. Without context, this has to be one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Even with context it's still pretty strange. 

So here's the deal: We went to Tecmo's TGS party, much like we do every year. Well, this year, thanks to the recent merger, it's now the Tecmo Koei party, but it's still in the same Kaihin Makuhari hotel, and there's still the same drinking and debauchery as always. This year they decided to throw an air guitar contest, and our own Rey Gutierrez decided to join in the fun. Rey was dead set on winning the prize, a guitar controller autographed by the Tecmo Koei staff.

Rey competed in all four rounds and did well, judging by audience response. For the last round, though, he had a solid plan: he would be as over-the-top as needed to win this prize. It turns out that Rey's boldness was contagious, and soon all contestants were dancing shirtless. I'm still nodding in disbelief. Nick stood behind me the whole time, quietly muttering "what is happening?" over and over.

In the end, Rey won. Thanks for taking one for the team, man. I don't know if you'll ever win this one down.
