Booth Showcase: SNK Is The King Of Fighters, Boobs

We close out our TGS booth tours with SNK’s. Thanks for stickin' around.

Booth Showcase: Konami's Solid Sense Of Longing

Oh, Konami. What a difference a year makes. Last year, they were the star of the show, Metal Gear Solid 4 winning over both critics and public alike. This year? They…well, let’s just say they probably wish they could re-release Metal Gear Solid 4 all over again, as without it, their lack of depth in other areas really… » 10/14/08 4:00pm 10/14/08 4:00pm

Booth Showcase: Yes, Sega Were At TGS

For a publisher of their size and stature, Sega’s Tokyo Game Show booth was a little » 10/14/08 12:00pm 10/14/08 12:00pm on the disappointing side. Nothing on hand was really wowing the crowd – not even the promise of a new Sonic game (Unleashed) – and were it not for the mild excitement accompanying Yakuza 3 the booth would have been one of the…

Booth Showcase: Capcom's Money Printing Apparatus

By far the two biggest draws of TGS were the Square Enix and Capcom booths » 10/13/08 6:00pm 10/13/08 6:00pm. But you know what, Square Enix doesn't count. Everyone was there for .

Chun Li Crotchplay: Violation Of Cosplay Rule #117

The Tokyo Game Show is many things, and classy » 10/13/08 2:30pm 10/13/08 2:30pm is generally one of them. The show's a safe, friendly, clean place to hang out for a few days.

Booth Showcase: Sony's Great White Hype

There were lots of booths at this year's Tokyo Game Show, but only a few of them were worth spending any great amount of time around.

Booth Companion Showcase: Konami Keep Things Understated

Those Tecmo girls » 10/12/08 7:30pm 10/12/08 7:30pm? Sure, they were easy on the eye, but flashing skin is so . And cheap is something Konami are just not interested in.

Microsoft Remind Japan What 360 Games Look Like, Part II

One of the better booths at last year's TGS was Microsoft's » 10/12/08 9:30am 10/12/08 9:30am. Mostly because they had a neat wall, which was displaying the game disc and cover art for every 360 game ever released in Japan. This year, they didn't exactly go one better (it's the same schtick), but they make sure the game boxes weren't left out.…

The Official Street Fighter IV Pins of TGS

After playing a round of Street Fighter IV in the Capcom booth at TGS08 the booth companions hand you a little packet of Street Fighter IV pins. I tried figuring out what the full set consisted of, but the time spent at the booth rooting through their freebie basket only netted me more eye time with the same two sets… » 10/11/08 8:30am 10/11/08 8:30am

SNK Playmore knows how to draw a crowd at Tokyo Game Show — just line up five girls in Mai Shiranui cosplay get ups and let the booth babe hungry masses snap dozens and dozens of photos of their perfectly smooth knees.
