Tokyo Game Show 2011 - Day 2

Tokyo Game Show is still going on but it will be the last day of the press only events. Tomorrow also starts day 3 which will be the first time TGS is open to the public. So look for a lot of cosplay and possibly more info during day 3. This was also posted on my podcast site Three Nerds in a Basement, where we also put up our new episode. Feel free to check it out.

Katamari Damacy (PSV)

Any chance I get I will always pimp the Katamari Damacy series, it is one of my favorite game franchises of all time and I have a huge bias towards it. Thankfully a new game as been announced for the Playstation Vita, the trailers does not show anything in terms of game play but does tease about a new stretching feature. I assume this means you will be able to stretch out your Katamari to cover a wider area when rolling. It’s fun to think of how they might implement this in the controls but I think they will use the back touch for stretching.

Dragons Dogma

I have always had my eye on this game when I heard it was Capcoms biggest budget game ever, and it really shows how much work is going into it in the new TGS trailer. Even though the game looks like Shadow of the Colossus x Demons Souls x Lord of the Rings that might not necessarily be a bad thing, the game play look insanely fun with the different ways you can hurt these monsters to get the upper hand. I am really looking forward to playing this game, looks like a lot of fun but let us hope it plays just as well.

Lollipop Chainsaw

Suda 51 can do no wrong, there I said it, I’ve admitted I will buy anything from this man because his ideas are crazy and amazing, having said that it should be no surprise that Lollipop Chainsaw is being highlighted in this blog.

The trailer has some brief shots of game play elements between Suda and some other dude talking. Some ways of killing zombies involve playing hopscotch on their head, cutting off a row of heads then somehow being transported to space while they bleed rainbows, and a boss whose attach are physical representations of words. Check out the trailer below to be utterly confused about what is going on and how someone green lighted this to be a game.
