Now that the major TGS stuff has been posted, the really interesting stuff starts. Spencer from Siliconera has begun writing up impressions of the lesser-known games he played at the show, like this under-the-radar title from Koei. Gabu Gabu Planet is a competitive eating game, but more in the vein...

Click for high-res image. One of the games that drew in the largest crowds at Tokyo Game Show was Devil May Cry 4, running on both PS3 and Xbox 360. There's a good reason for its popularity -- it simply reeks of cool. The gameplay doesn't stray far from its predecessors, which is a good thing in ou...

Click for high-res image. We still have a few leftover goodies from Tokyo Game Show. Like these screenshots of Soulcalibur IV. As a wise roommate once said, "these are pretty." Indeed, they are pretty.There should be more to say about the game, aside from gawking at its pretty looks (what game these...

This latest clip from Power Pro Baseball (MLB Power Pros for us here in the states) has us all kinds of excited for some super-deformed baseball on our Wii. In showing us how a game is set up and played, we're dying to get in on the action. We just wish the game was Wi-Fi compatible ...

Click for high-res image. The light gun genre may be a dying breed, but Time Crisis 4 ignores all warnings. In spite of some sloppy graphical and presentation issues, it's clear that Time Crisis 4 is the best, if not only, option for fans of the genre.Right now, the game doesn't have that "next-gen...

Patapon, a PSP title which we've seen very little of so far, is proving a great hit at the Tokyo Game Show. With a line that was sometimes longer than Metal Gear Online we were curious to see what all the fuss was about. Finally we braved the Dreaded Public and got our hands on the goods.Stepping i...

Click to see high-res image. Namco Bandai has managed to sneak a little bit of story into all of its Soulcalibur fighting games. Ultimately, they provide little reason as to why these characters seem to enjoy beating the c**p out of each other -- but it's good fun for us, nonetheless. The story of t...

It feels good to see that someone out there still likes the GameCube. At the recently concluded TGS, some students whipped up the game you see above. Titled Blowind, it's a platformer where the protagonists are armed with gigantic fans. These can be used in an offensive manner, using gusts of wind t...

It seems the Tokyo Game Show's intense draw extends beyond international borders and well into intergalactic, fictional universes, a fact highlighted by Saturday's arrival of one Darth Vader. The force-choking, emperor-dunking Jedi was seen leading an imperial march through the show floor, glaring...

Tecmo is bringing the next Fatal Frame title to the Wii, and they're recruiting Team Awesome-Crazy at Grasshopper Manufacture on board to handle the details. Clearly, this eclipses all the other news that's come out of this year's Tokyo Game Show. That's it. There's no topping it. Okay, maybe we're...

The Capcom representitives told us that the game would be available for download on the EU PSN store in early November. The reason fo...
