The lights are on
The other day we woke up in Japan, so we figured we'd check out this
cool curry place in the basement of the Tokyo Game Show. Here's
the stuff we saw on the way to lunch.
Outside of the convention center we saw some posters for a new Japanese boy band called PlayStation

Look how advanced Japanese graphics are!
Some dumb Pokémon crap
Who? Gree is one of the worlds largest social networking companies with a focus on mobile gaming. Their booth is larger than Sqaure Enix. Crazy, we know
Solid Snake is so old now that he thinks he's hidden as long as he doesn't move
Some more dumb Pokémon crap
This is Capcom's booth. We hope the covered wagon means that the company is working on an Oregon Trail-themed Monster Hunter
A civil liberty group had the decapitated bodies of the Resident Evil: Retribution cast on display as a warning to anyone who still thought they wanted to see that terrible movie

They've mastered beef, think about how much they could teach you about computing
We all fear the giant egg this Chocobo could lay at any moment
Iran: at the forefront of video game entertainment
Good news guys, they're making a seventh game!
This is a Lego diorama of Earth Defense Force 3. After this, an army of ants swung by the booth and ruined the display
This dragon greeted everyone who came by the Konami booth. His name is Barry. He's a little misunderstood
A couple of stoic gentlemen displayed the newest in Metal Gear clothing
Email the author Ben Reeves, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
I think I saw something for that on G4
GREE tends to have a rather large booth at E3 too. In the US I doubt most people know much about them but the founder is or was the youngest billionaire in Japan.
Well done Ben, well done.
The caption under the Iran National Foundation of Computer Games had me chuckling for a good 5 minutes. Well done.
The Iran thing really made me crack up.
Nicely done, Ben. I loved the captions!
Iranian games are the best! Treat yourself if you haven't actually played one.
Amazing Ben, Loved the captions. I want to go to Japan!
I've missed the old days of GI wit and wisdom; seeing captions like this really brings me back, and bumps up my love of the company at the same time. While I wish I'd been able to go to TGS 2012, Reeves's commentary says it all.
UNICLO! Japan's only affordable clothing brand. I laughed out loud at the Iran booth. Was that actually there? I would have pooped my pants.
Kept you waiting, huh? Oh, Snake.
I can't wait for... whatever that is 7!
My favorite had to be "good news guys, they are making a seventh game!" I still can't tell what it is actually supposed to be.
the dude makes everything sound depressing. As if he hated everything he saw... sarcasm in every caption.
Looks really good.
That Iran Booth really looks like it has a lot of potential.
who ever did these articles is an arrogant stereotypical ***, none of those who he deemed "dumb pokemon crap" were not even pokemon. somebody fire his ass
