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

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."

earth defense forces 4

Earth Defense Forces 4 features all the insanely huge bugs you could ever hope for. At Tokyo Game Show 2012, Nikole Zivalich swallowed her fear of the creepy crawlies and took on spiders the size of Cadillac Escalades. Here's a snippet from her Earth Defense Forces 4 preview:

I immediately jumped into a city full of tall skyscrapers, each connected by an intricate web. Spiders the size of six Cadillac Escalades called each web home. These spiders were indiscriminately grabbing civilians and soldiers alike, pulling them up into their webs. A quick cutscene showed a new character to the game, a female with a jetback and mech-wings, trapped in sticky lair of some menacing spider. "Have no fear, damsel! I'm here to save you!"

To find out how you're going to have to take these pests out, check our full Earth Defense Forces 4 preview from Tokyo Game Show 2012.

monster hunter 4

Monster Hunter 4 was one of the biggest draws of Tokyo Game Shows 2012. The action role-playing game brings the hugely popular series to the Nintendo 3DS and Nikole Zivalich got to see it in action. Here's a piece of her Monster Hunter 4 preview:

The 15 minute demo consisted of 10 small points on a map. They ranged from grass fields with docile dinosaur-like beasts, to a barren, rocky summit with bones and dirt. The farther I moved along the map, the more aggressive the baddies became. Enemies were mainly creatures resembling raptors and other dinosaurs. Mini-boss creatures also appeared to have been modeled after dinosaurs, but these were larger and much harder to take down.

To learn about the kinds of encounters you'll find yourself in while playing MH4, check out our full Monster Hunter 4 preview from Tokyo Game Show 2012.

tekken tag tournament 2

While Tekken Tag Tournament 2 may already be out for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the Wii U edition promises to add new features while bringing a Nintendo flare to the fighting game. At Tokyo Game Show 2012, Jake "Mushroom" Gaskill got to preview Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the Wii U and took note of its new Mushroom Battle Mode and World Tekken Federation features. From his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 preview:

"In terms of actual content, Namco has incorporated quite a bit of Nintendo fandom into the game. First, there’s the Wii U exclusive Mushroom Battle mode, which not only features character growing/shrinking mushrooms and energizing stars, but also includes a remixed version of the Super Mario Bros. theme song and the energy star theme whenever a character picks it up. The sound effects of the pickups are also here. There are also classic outfits that various characters can wear. Namco has yet to confirm all of the Nintendo characters included in the game, but during my session, I saw Mario, Luigi, Samus, Zelda, and Fox."
