Patrick Vs. Tokyo: Final Round

After years of wondering what it'd be like to visit Japan, G4 finally gave me the opportunity to visit the country responsible for so many of my video game memories. Tokyo Game Show 2009 has come and gone. When we landed at Narita Airport, a week seemed like an eternity. How would I adjust to the time? Where's the nearest McDonalds? How do I ask where the bathroom is? The week flew by and four helpings of curry later -- an amount I do not recommend if you want to like curry by the time you leave -- I'd returned to the United States and knew exactly where the nearest McDonalds was.

But as Tokyo Game Show dominated the rest of my time, I didn't have a chance to update all of you with another behind-the-scenes look at the G4 crew's adventures abroad. I haven't forgotten! (By the way, these galleries leave out the show floor of the eccentric Tokyo Game Show for a reason -- if you want to see those, check out the several other photo galleries from last week.)

Japan loves breakfast treats. This is a portable pancake filled with syrup, butter and other goodness.

By far, my favorite ad that I saw during my entire week in Japan.

When you finish a bowl of ramen, you dump the noodles out first. Japan loves dividing things up.

Please, friends. Do it in the athletic club! For the children.

This frickin' amazing car came out of nowhere. Jealous.

Naturally, this is the slogan attached to Sega's arcade version of Typing of the Dead. Naturally.

There is a culture of "love motels" in Japan. This one? This one is full, my friends.
