Blurry Photos from Tokyo Game Show 2013

Tokyo Game Show 2013

This year, I had the chance to attend Tokyo Game Show for the first time. It’s a four-day game convention, quite similar to E3although smaller in scale. The first two days are industry-only Business Days, while the last two days are open to the public. I originally wasn’t planning to go, as Business Day passes normally cost ¥5000 a piece, but Miyazaki-san came through in the nick of time with four pre-paid tickets, which meant that Edu, Bob, Kairi and I were able to indulge in a field trip to TGS this past Friday. The great thing about attending on Business Day was the lack of crowds! I hate line-ups that last more than an hour, so if I’m lucky, I’ll try out maybe one game at E3, but at TGS I was able to spend a considerable amount of time playing the RYSE multiplayer demo, the Knack demo (which actually had quite a long line), and check out a few on-stage demos as well. I won’t review any of these, because hey, why read reviews when you can look at blurry pictures I took with my phone instead!

The line to try out GTA V (which has yet to be released in Japan) was over two hours long!

Bobbyさん challenged fellow Brit Ryan Hart to a bout of Street Fighter at the Mad Catz booth. Things didn’t go so well for Bob 😦

The cafeteria had various food vendors including this one hawking “Hormone Curry.” The hormone bit, I later discovered, refers not to hormones, but to offal, or organ meats.

Edu zeroed in on the booth babes, as with every convention.

    Blurry photos are the best, it feels like I’m actually there but just after waking up. Thanks for the photos, we wish we could visit Tokyo 🙂
