This isn't related to video making but I thought I'd post it here since there was interest in anime conventions recently on the wall. After I went to Tokyo Game Show a few weeks ago I wrote up a short review of the day on another forum. Here's it is I put some cosplay pics at the end~

TGS '08



I am in no way a gaming expert.. just a long time player and quite frankly, a sony fangirl but I thought I'd give a little review of my day at Tokyo Game Show '08 for those who might be interested. I spent the day amidst thousands of people so didn't get to do everything I wanted. The crowds were so bad in front of some places that I only got to try 3 games. That said... I was still like a kid in a candy store.

1) Sonic world adventure (PS3)
2008/12/18

It was fun even if I got a nice game over in front of tons of people haha. A little hard to control at first because it goes so fast (as one would expect) but I can see how this game could be fun once you get the hang of it.

2) Quantum Theory (PS3)
2009
This was pretty cool, I'm looking forward to it. It's a 3rd person shooter (so naturally I sucked). I got to use one of the two main characters (the guy). It's basically set in this post apocalyptic world ... dark sci-fi type. The guy character uses a huge gun... and the girl has this weapon that can change between gun and sword. I'd probably prefer the sword wielder although I'm not entirely sure you can choose which to use as your main.

3) Some cellphone bluetooth soccer game haha... I won!

The highlights

1. The highlight for me was anything related to either square enix or playstation 3. Playstation 3 just blew all the competition out of the water if you ask me. Xbox 360 had some interesting RPG titles (The Last Remnant, Star Ocean the last hope, Infinite Undiscovery)... but PS3's lineup was so much more impressive. I got to watch some previews of a few games... These are the ones I really wanna play.

Final Fantasy XIII Fabula Nova Crystallis ... this was by far the most beautiful set of games at TGS
Silent Hill the homecoming
Street fighter IV
Tekken
Quantum Theory
shirokishi (aka White Knight Chronicles) - this one looks just wow wow wow

and another that I dont know the english name to


2. Advent Children Complete released March 2009 !
The preview showed some pretty cool new scenes :3 especially of the Cloud and Sephy fight.

3. I got to see a few new anime related games as well. I'm not very interested in playing anime related games, but some stuff to look out for if you're interested are:

(all for ps3 *ahem* sorry I'm a bit one sided)
Gundam Musou 2
Gundam Seed Destiny
Naruto *insert japanese title here*

4. Within the anime style spectrum the anime preview for Xam'd: Lost Memories really caught my eye. I got to watch a bit in HD ... wow wow @_@ I'll be checking it out as soon as I get a PS3 in a couple of months (because i want to watch it in HD).

5. I don't know if it's a highlight for me but I managed to snake my way through this enormous crowd at the PS3 hall and watched an interview (that I didn't really understand) with the director of Metal Gear Solid 4. The crowd Oo'd and Aa'd several times so I imagine it was important haha.

There was so much more ... biohazard (resident evil), Metal Gear Solid, Kingdom Heart rubbish, etc... but I was more interested in the above mentioned so I didn't really check out in detail what was being offered.
