  • Weird Stuff I Saw In Japan While Attending TGS: The Blog

    18 5

    Got back from Tokyo on Monday. It was my first time in the city, and my first time attending TGS. Frankly, the Tokyo Game Show was a bit of a disappointment. I had built up a lot of expectations about it from hearing stories from coworkers over the years, so I was anticipating an insane spectacle on the level of E3. What I got was a convention center filled with a few big booths, but a lot of small time companies and empty space. Don't get me wrong, there were a lot good games there. Capcom in particular had some great titles, and getting to play Splinter Cell: Conviction for the first time was as awesome as I had hoped.

    One thing that didn't disappoint was Tokyo. It's really an amazing city. There are strange and wonderful things lurking around every corner, and the people there are some of the nicest in the world. More
