The Joystiq Show - TGS 2011 Check-in 1

The Tokyo Game Show 2011 is just a few hours away from its first public day, but the Joystiq Strike Team has been attending press conferences and events for days now -- just look at all those posts! In between boat rides and chocolate-filled bread eating, they found time to reflect on what they have seen and deliver it straight to your ears.

Handhelds have been the focus this year with Sony and Nintendo spending much of their time talking about the PS Vita and 3DS respectively, but that's not all the guys have to share. Ninja Gaiden 3, Dead or Alive 5, Diabolical Pitch, Project Draco, Asura's Wrath and more in the first TGS 2011 check-in.
