One of the quirkiest pieces of gear we found at Tokyo Game Show 2012 were the Necomimi cat ears from Neurosky. Basically, they interpret your brainwaves and move accordingly based on your mental state. If you're focused, they'll perk up, if you're relaxed, they'll drop down. Take a look for yourself, and if you watch all the way to the end you'll get to see NeuroSky's latest prototype -- a wagging tail!

Ex Troopers is the Lost Planet 3 anime style spinoff from Capcom. The title was only recently announced and as of yet we still don't know if it's coming to the states. Nevertheless, Jake Gaskill got his hands on Ex Troopers at Tokyo Game Show and was able to get a feel for its controls and style in his latest preview. Here's a piece:

"You also have a grappling hook, but it looks like you can only use it in on designated objects or specific spots. Luckily, you have a slick looking jetpack that you can use to fly short distances, lunge forward, and strafe. Lost Planet’s lack of mobility---or rather, the series’ oddly designed sense of movement---has always been one of the big turn offs for me, and while it’s obviously meant to fit in with Ex Troopers’ more fanciful anime style, the faster paced action is much more fluid and responsive than the weighty, grounded feel of Lost Planet."

Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation

Jake "Tricorne" Gaskill got his hands on the PC Vita version of Assassin's Creed 3, at Tokyo Game Show and brought back a preview. Here's a bit of his Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation preview to whet your appetite.

"Naturally, the build on display at TGS was in Japanese, so I have no idea what the point of this particular mission was, but seeing as I only have a few minutes anyway, story wasn’t at the top of my priorities list. After checking in with a nearby contact, a giant circle popped up on my radar, marking the location of the fort I was to infiltrate, peppered with red dots indicating all the guards in need of a right stabbing. Since I didn’t have time to fully pursue the mission, I focused mainly on testing out more of the traversal elements and some of the new momentum takedowns (because they are just too damn satisfying.)"
