I’m on a plane to Brisbane, so I’ve got some spare time to spend updating the blog. First off I suppose is the Tokyo game show. I managed to sneak in on the first day as a distributor, and got to play a few games I have been looking forward to. Halo 3 didn’t seem all that special, looks the same as halo two, but it felt tweaked and refined etc… I played Metal Gear Solid 4 online, had a lan game with a bunch of other people, didn’t do too well with that. Graphics were good but I had a problem getting used to the controls. Can’t expect much in 20 minutes I suppose. I was going to play Devil May Cry 4, but I couldn’t be bothered waiting twenty minutes. Overall my favorite game was little big planet. I just love the idea of having to work as a team. It’s defiantly a game I want to buy. I played many games, most of which looked worth getting. I lost a game of Eye of Judgment, but only because the idiot Japanese guy next to me didn’t remember the rules.
Overall the game show wasn’t as big as I expected it to be but it was my first actual game, so I have nothing to compare it to. I’m fairly sure I wouldn’t have enjoyed it very much had I gone on the weekend. Good luck to those of you who will be attending this weekend, I hope you can handle waiting hours for game demos.
