Hello, long time no see.
I haven’t written anything here for ages. *I have another blog in Japanese and I write often there*
So, I’d like to talk about Tokyo Game Show 2014.
Yay!! Who’s excited?
This year, Tokyo Game Show was held on 18 – 21 September 2014 in Makuhari Messe, Chiba
The nearest station is Kaihim Makuhari, you can go there with JR Keiyo Line from Tokyo Station.
18 and 19 (Thurs and Fri) were not open for public. You still can buy the ticket, but it will be very expensive (I heard). And 20-21 were open for public.
I came there on 18 (Thurday) as a part of Cofesta Ambassador. If you don’t know what cofesta is, please check here
So, what happened in this year TGS? Let’s check it out
People says if you go during the non-public days, it will be less crowded. But believe me guys, the line was also long that day. Esp the biohazard one, you have to queue for ages just for try that game
Meanwhile, the sony playstation booth:
They displayed a lot of games. And you can try them. But please note that:
1. You will need tickets for some game, there were counters near the booth where you can line and get tickets, and when you want to play some games, hand the ticket to the staff.
2. Some of the games do not need tickets (e/g Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Remix)
3. You can only play for 10-12 mins, be considerate with other people please 😀
What else? Booth babes and cosplayers!
Ryu Ga Gotoku 0 Booth Babes. LoL no words needed, probably you know who they are
Marvelous Corp Cosplayer
Yone-san told us that Capcom usually has the prettiest Booth Babes. Indeed.
And for you girls, probably you think that TGS is only for boys, don’t worry! They also have love simulation game and BL game
The BL game experience. That was a girl being attacked by another girl (who dressed as a man)
Me and one of the ikemen in the romance simulation game.
They had several romance simulation experience. One of my friend was being kabe-donned by the Ikemen. Mine was like… umm I was told to enter a room, then he was there, in bathrobe, warmly greeted me. LOL
There were also shops for official goodies! *where’s my money grows on tree T-shirt again?* LOL
