After a very busy weekend and week, I finally have some time to post pictures. On Sunday I visited the Tokyo Game Show which is the Japanese equivalent of E3. It is where every single game manufacturer spends hordes of money to promote their upcoming games and hardware for the next year. Also, most everything was playable depending on how long you wanted to wait in line.
Anyway, without further ado, here is the picture you have all been waiting for:
Some of you may know how much of a significance that game has made on my life and you can just imagine my feelings when I got to see it months before it is released. Not only did I get to see it, but I also stood in line to play it. Yes, you heard me correctly, I actually stood in a line willingly. When it was my turn to finally be able to play Tekken 5 I was filled with the utmost glee, but short-lived as I realized I would be playing a Japanese guy who had beat the 4 people in line before me, which what seemed to be a record at the time as normally people only won about 1-3 games before loosing to the next player.
I came to realize that my life’s devotion to Tekken was not wasted in vain as I proceeded to completely demolish the Japanese player. I then continued to completely destroy the next 4 opponents that dare to challenge me, even picking up a few ‘perfects’ on the way. After I had easily won the next 5 matches, the machine kindly thanked me for playing, at which point I stood up and slowly left the Tekken 5 booth with my day officially complete.
Of course one of the other main reasons that people went to the show was for all the eye candy. Hundreds upon hundreds of Japanese girls dressed up in some sort of costume or small outfit. Photographers stood in lines just for the opportunity to take pictures of these costumed characters.
Monday, was a completely separate story as I went to Tokyo Disney Sea with Jenn, yet again. It was raining on Monday but was still actually very fun as there were practically no people and lines were almost non-existent. There are some pictures, but you will have to wait for them.
Until then, please enjoy the complete Tokyo Game Show gallery here:
