Tokyo Game Show 2014 main visual unveiled

Tokyo Game Show 2014 main visual unveiled photo



TGS always has some weird robo-girl as their main image. They're always kind of cool, but more weird than cool. Artist Ippey Gyoubu, the image illustrator for the show since 2010, created this piece to express the keywords change and transformation, matching with the TGS 2014 theme: Changing Games: The Transformation of Fun. 

This year, Tokyo Game Show is set for September 18 through 21 at Makuhari Messe, Chiba. They estimate 220,000 visitors and 1,600 booths for this year. 

Despite its changes, TGS is still my favorite game show. I've decided that I don't ever want to miss it.

Gyoubu explains:

I created this year’s main visual by visualizing the “emergence” based on the keyword “change/transformation” in the theme. A caterpillar becomes a chrysalis, breaks down its body and reconstructs itself to be born as a completely different creature. In a gaming world, technological innovation has evolved in the last 10 years and now that we’ve passed through the revolutions such as internet, social media and smartphone, I feel that we’ve come close to the time of the birth of a completely new world with all those revolutions blending well. I created this visual based on that feeling. This main visual expresses the ambiguity of whether the visual is a reflection of the metal or not, it’s a flat graphic or not, it’s stereoscopic or planar, and she’s a human or a robot.

Mario meets Shadow of the Colossus again

Hooray! Illustrator Jason Lupas has come out with more Mario and Shadow of the Colossus mashups following the pieces we covered last month. I'd love to see a game follow this concept. There's a finished version of the prior Donkey Kong sketch, an underwater scene (shown above), and a cool four-legged reimagining of the Chain Chomp. Good stuff, Jason. Jason Lupas [Tumblr]more

'Togekiss watching Doduo take a crap' and other mistaken sprites

Instead of taking a proper lunch break away from my computer today, I got caught up in this funny, nostalgic NeoGAF thread about "sprites that look like things they're not supposed to." Older games allowed and even encouraged...more

This Shadow of the Colossus and Mario mashup is very cool

Artist Jason Lupas has posted a few updates on his Tumblr recently that are decidedly videogame related, and they're pretty awesome. They're both homages to Shadow of the Colossus, one of which features a Mario themed ma...more
