TGS: Off-screen footage of Soulcalibur V

It seems like all the major fighting franchises are making a revival in some form or way. One of the biggest in the fighting genre, Soulcalibur V, is on the way back too and I got to go hands-on with it. I really suck at fighting games, so...

PixelJunk Lifelike rebranded as PixelJunk 4am

The game formerly known as PixelJunk Lifelike shall now be referred to as PixelJunk 4am. Man, I don't think I've even been up that late in years. According to Baiyon, who is working on this audio-visual thing for PlayStation Move alongside...

TGS: Dead or Alive 5 concept video is freakin' nuts

After seeing the results of a year's worth of work on Ninja Gaiden 3 we thought Team Ninja's evening presentation was over. They tricked us and unveiled Dead or Alive 5 and their pre-TGS event tonight. Were we surprised? Not really.  ...

Devil's Third E3 trailer says game is playable at TGS

Oh, how is this promotional video for The Devil's Third strange? Let me count the ways. First, it features Japanese talent Hard Gay. That should have tipped me off from the beginning that there was no way I would understand what was a...

Watch Bulletstorm's Tokyo Game Show demonstration

Epic Games sent over this video which shows elements of the Bulletstorm demo on the floor at Tokyo Game Show. Narrated by Producer Tanya Jessen, it shows off the "Bouncer," which basically fires a cannonball. But beyond how awesome it...

The Best of Tokyo Game Show cosplay: Part 2

Here's the second half of our look at the cosplayers and crossplayers of TGS, as edited by the lovely and talented Dale North. I forgot how crowded this whole scene was. All the cosplayers were gathered outside, in-between halls, backed in...

La Mulana is like 'Mickey Mouse Vs. The Terminator'

One of my favorite experiences at TGS didn't happen at TGS. It happened at a strange restaurant where you order your food on an iPad and the beer flows like wine. That's where I met up with Tyrone Rodriguez and Mike Lambert (Cave Story Wii...

El Shaddai video and screens will Bible you in your face

I'm really looking forward to El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. Cel-shaded beat 'em ups based on obscure Biblical books aren't games that you get to see every day, so I've got high expectations for this bizarre little title.  Her...

The big fat Tokyo Game Show recap

The Best of Tokyo Game Show cosplay: Part 1

Here's the first in a two part TGS cosplay spectacular, edited by Mr. Dale North. Thanks again, Dale. These videos were brutal to cut together. I think there were over 200 clips in all, hence the two videos. The amount off cosplay on displ...

'New' NES game Battle Kid spotted in local Tokyo shops

Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril has apparently been kicking around for a while, but I'd never seen it before. It wasn't at PAX East or PAX Prime, and it sure as hell wasn't at E3. However, it does look pretty awesome. If you can't tell from ...

TGS: Project Dark steps into the light

I think we can all agree that we're pretty pumped for whatever the hell Project Dark (a working title) is going to be. And if the trailer above is any indication then it's going to look lot like Demon's Souls. If you're upset about this, t...

TGS: The Accidental Pervert's best of booth companions

So, as it turns out, there is a law in Japan against taking a girl's picture without her permission. Not only did I not know this, but even if I did, I have no idea how to ask a girl in Japanese if I am allowed to take her picture. That, c...

TGS: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 announced

Looks like the Tekken series is going into complete global saturation mode. First Street Fighter Vs. Tekken, then Tekken Vs. Street Fighter, and now Tekken Tag 2. I thought that Tekken VS. Street Fighter was supposed to be the de facto Tek...

TGS: Here's some weird-ass Yakuza Of The End gameplay

Words cannot express how weird I still find Yakuza Of The End, Sega's new zombie-fied take on the Yakuza series. We brought you pictures, cosplay, and a story trailer, but the biggest question in most minds was "How the hell does this stup...

TGS: Hands-on with rhythm heroics in Astro Ranger

Tucked away in a ignored corner of TGS was Astro Ranger, a rhythm action arcade game from Korea. I was immediately drawn to it. The art direction and general premise here is very reminiscent of Viewtiful Joe, which is a sure fire way to ga...

TGS: Behold Marvel Vs. Capcom 3's giant chicken stage

In yesterday's Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 interview, Seth Killian told us about some of the new stages for the game. We showed you footage of the Resident Evil stage, but we missed out on Asgard. I went back later to get some footage of the stage...

TGS: Nikudan is bar fighting for the lazy

As you can see in this video, the controls for Nikudan (Japanese title) are pretty solid. The game doesn't seem to tolerate too many sweeping or drastic moves, but fast jabs and bodyblows seem to register just fine. More arching motions, l...
