Ubisofts’s Assassins Creed III had a huge setup. Microsoft had closed off testing of Gears of War Judgement and Halo 4. Black Ops 2 was everywhere as expected. The lineups to play games were awful!! Square Enix had building tall ads all over LA. Although there was no huge hardware announcements and a ton of sequels, the industry is strong and moving forward, as long as your not asking the tech critics at CNET.
Tokyo Game Show started on a very wet Wednesday at the Makhurri Messe hall in Tokyo, Japan mid September. As this is Sony’s place to shine, it was everything Playstation. Their new Move hardware was in full effect, multiple 3D Gran Turismo 5 setups could be seen. And a few huge titles for their extremely popular and rumored to be replaced PSP were announced. Monster Hunter 3, Phantasy Star II Portable, Yakuza: Black Panther, The 3rd Day. We had the pleasure of seeing Hideo Kojima display the new sword system in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and hear him speak about Castlevania: Lords of Shadows, which looks extremely promising after multiple delays.
