TGS 2010 - Impressions & Pictures From Day 1

Just a quick post for now, as its 12.10am and I have only just arrived home from TGS Day 1, slightly worse for wear/beer. I will have in-depth impressions and more pictures from Friday onwards.

Overall, despite some interesting titles and announcements, I came away from TGS Day 1 mildly disappointed. There was no playable Last Guardian demo nothing on Metal Gear Solid Rising, and Final Fantasy XIII Versus only made the briefest of appearances in the form of a tantalizing 20 second video. More on that another time.

Why cant Valkyria Chronicles 3 be on the PS3, instead of the PSP?

Mega Man Universe on Hard difficulty made me want to punch myself in the face, repeatedly.

Its extremely embarrassing playing Marvel Vs Capcom 3 with a beat-em-up pro sitting next to you. Especially when you are only mashing 2 of the 6 available buttons on your fighting stick.

El Shaddai really stood out from the crowd. It has a style and atmosphere all of its own, as well as the best looking booth of the show.

Why does all the food offered in the TGS food hall come covered in curry?

Zombies and Yakuza make for an exciting mix, especially when perma-tan icon, Toshihiro Nagoshi is involved.

Best trailer of the show: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Breathtaking cinematics as well as a very impression demonstration of the new elements within the singleplayer campaign. I wasn't as convinced by the multiplayer demo however.

Playing Killzone 3, I got my first taste of PS Move and 3D gaming. I thought the 3D was well utilized, but cant say the same about the motion controls. More about KZ3 to come in the next few days.

Tomorrow, I hope to try - food not covered in curry sauce, Tactics Ogre, 3rd Birthday, Valkyria Chronicles 3, Little Big Planet 2, More Move & Kinnect, new Monster Hunter title and much much more.
