Games Played at TGS 2011

Even if TGS isn't a particularly relevant event anymore even for Japanese games, it was always on my to-do list as a purveyor of video games if I were ever in Japan at the right time just so that I could witness the sheer spectacle of it. Considering my major, it was something that was bound to happen eventually and it turned out to be this year. As such, here's a list of the (few) games I got to play there, as well as some brief impressions.

Thanks for the impressions.

.....And I hope you did the right thing and picked Ganguro Chie as your "Color Priset"(or has that typo been fixed too)?

@mutha3: I didn't pick that color scheme by default, but since the match was double-Chies anyway, I wound up with the ganguro getup anyway. It was delightfully classy.

@Pepsiman: Ha! Great. I've gotta say, though, the fact that you only got to play 3 games seems.....weird to me. How many hours were spent waiting to play these games?

And I've got another P4U question if you don't mind.....How was the music? Did you even manage to hear any of it?

Wait, is that Ganguro Chie or Kogal Chie? Is there even a difference?

@mutha3: Couldn't hear any of it whatsoever! Some of the voice clips and sound effects were vaguely audible, but if the music was on, I couldn't hit it. That was basically the ongoing theme of the show. Of the three games I played, only Asura's Wrath came with dedicated headphones and even then, it was drowned out by the Michael Jackson game being played next door.

How on earth did you manage to get indents in between your paragraphs on this list? I've resigned myself to having huge blocks of text in mine.

@ashogo: For reasons I'm still not entirely sure about, the basic text editor for lists requires that you write out the stuff for things like line breaks in HTML. Two sets of <br> should set you along your way.
