WRUP: Tokyo a go-go


This week's Tokyo Game Show brought us the latest PlayStation 3 console revision, along with a whole lot of coverage of the games Japan really, really cares about. If reading isn't your thang, Richard Mitchell and Jordan Mallory also talk about what they saw in several Super Joystiq Podcast TGS specials.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski): Really, really, want to finish Dust: An Elysian Tale. Also beeen hearing a lot about FTL, so kinda want to check it.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Ludwig was kind enough to lend me Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and Darksiders 2, so I'll flip a coin and start one of those this weekend, pausing only to squeeze in some MUT in Madden NFL 13 and the occasional duel in Magic 2013 – new decks mean new cards to unlock.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm playing all of next year's best indie games at Fantastic Arcade.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Borderlands 2 online with as many friends as possible. Can't stop won't stop.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): NO TIME FOR GAMES I'M IN JAPAN
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I think the only thing that could distract me from Super Hexagon is ... Disneyland. Oh, I'm going to Disneyland this weekend, by the way.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I played some Xenominer, and it was fun. Plus, more Torchlight 2 and Darksiders 2.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): FIFA 13, Pro Evo 2013, and trying to claw my way to my first win in my fantasy football leagues.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): I finished Super Mario 3D Land on the way to the Tokyo Game Show, so I guess the trip home will be spent dreaming of playing my new, Japanese copies of Fatal Frame 4 on my Wii and Magical Drop 2 on my Sega Saturn.
  • Sinan Kubba (@Shoinan): After totally forgetting to buy it for last week's trip, I now have New Super Mario Bros. 2.
  • Steven Wong: I'll be shooting my way across Pandora in Borderlands 2 all weekend.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Time to dream up ways to smash my old HTC Thunderbolt. Horrible device has been replaced by the iPhone 5. Playing Borderlands 2 to celebrate / think of creative death scenarios for the phone!
