Haha. That last one of Guile made me laugh. Great list of pictures you compiled here, Brian. It was a great Tokyo Game Show this year. I was especially impressed with the indies and the e-sports this year. I have found myself migrating away from the main halls recently and focusing on Hall 9 (Indies, VR, cosplay, and e-sports). There is a lot more space, it is easier to talk to developers and other team members, and the competition stuff I watched on Sunday was fantastic.
This was the first year I joined both Business Days and a Public Day. My kids really wanted to go this year, so I went the extra day for them.
I would love to hang some time, Brian, if you ever have the chance. Maybe when these Tokyo Game Shows come around, we can try to connect. That would be fun!
