CES 2011: The Video Games of the Microsoft Booth - Fable 3 and Age of Empires Online

Microsoft has announced their Tokyo Game Show lineup. While the Xbox 360 is definitely not the console of choice in Japan, the company is set to try and make a splash this year with a variety of games that they hope will please an international audience.

Those games include:

The sad thing is that only a handful of these games are Xbox exclusive. Do you think these games are enough for Microsoft to leave an impact at the show? On the other hand, Sony is bringing over 40 games to TGS and showing off over 30 PS Vita games.

Whose games are you most excited to see at TGS, between September 15-18?

PlayStation Vita Online Modes Revealed: Near, Party, LiveArea, and Activity -- Will This Revolutionize Portable Gaming?

Japanese gaming magazine Famitisu has leaked nine new PlayStation Vita games that will be available to demo at the Tokyo Game Show. While we already knew that there would be 30 PS Vita games at Tokyo Game Show, a few were still supposed to be a surprise. Luckily for us, we've now got a bit more insight on these surprise titles. They include:

  • Lumines: Electronic Symphony
  • Rayman Origins
  • Michael Jackson The Experience HD
  • Dark Quest
  • Sumioni
  • Dream Club Zero Portable
  • Moe Moe Daisensou
  • Ragnarok Odyssey

While Lumines and Rayman seem like a natural fit for the Vita, the games I'm most excited about on this list are Sumioni and Ragnarok Odyssey. Sumiomi looks like a 2D action-adventure game in the same sumi-e Japanese art style of Okami, and I loved that. I'm also a fan of a game like Ragnarok coming to the Vita, before even Monster Hunter does.

I have to say, with such an incredible amount of games coming to the Vita at or around launch, I'm getting very excited about the handheld. What about you?

Nintendo 3DS Gets A Flame Red Paint Job On September 9

Some Nintendo 3DS rumors are kicking around this morning, compliments of a report from Bloomberg that the company is holding a pre-Tokyo Game Show event on September 13 that is related to the newly released handheld. This is unusual, as Nintendo does not usually have a presence at TGS.

inFAMOUS 2's Cole McGrath Coming To PlayStation Vita Version of Street Fight x Tekken

Sony confirmed only yesterday the unfortunate news that the PlayStation Vita won't be coming to the U.S. or Europe this year. "Early 2012" is all we have to go on right now, but that timetable's going to get a lot more specific next month at Tokyo Game Show. That's where the release date will be confirmed, Sony has revealed (via VG247).

SCE Japan president Hiroshi Kawano confirmed the TGS reveal in a blog post yesterday, adding that the date is already "finalized." That's frustrating, right? Don't worry. Given Sony's secret-keeping track record, we should have a leaked release date in a matter of hours.

Tokyo Game Show Is Not Canceled, Could Be Downsized

The tragic earthquakes and tsunamis that have plagued Japan won't stop the Tokyo Game Show, Japan's biggest gaming convention. It might slow it down a bit, however. Tokyo Game Show, which takes place each September, will consume a lot of power, power that could be needed to help fix the nuclear reactors. Power shortages to help this effort could last up to six more months, which puts TGS in a bit of a situation.

Right now, there are no plans to axe the show.  A Tokyo Game Show spokesperson told Kotaku Japan, "Currently, we are not thinking of canceling or making the show smaller." He added, "Depending on the situation from here on out, it is possible that the show is reduced."

Tokyo Game Show is planned for September 15-18.

Lips: Number One Hits Interview »

Even though Lips didn't make the kind of impact on music games Microsoft might have been hoping for, designer Keiichi Yano is still collaborating with Microsoft on a new version, Lips: Number One Hits, set to arrive later this year on Xbox 360. While in Japan for Tokyo Game Show, we stopped by Yano's offices at iNiS to chat about Lips, his thoughts on Project Natal (it sounds like he's working on some projects) and his biggest competition in the karaoke space, SingStar.

Bayonetta Dev's Opinions On Motion Controls, Casual Games: If It Makes Sense

There are two questions asked in just about every interview with any prominent developer these days (and ones I did pass on while talking to Bayonetta producer Yusuku Hashimoto recently at Tokyo Game Show), questions asked because, well, people want to know.

1. What do you think of motion controls now that every platform is adopting them?
2. Does the Wii create an increased pressure to develop casual games or casual features?

The responses tend to vary. Some developers, almost instinctually, are quick to show rabid support for the new control interfaces and figuring out ways to embrace this expanded audience. Hashimoto, however, pretty much answered my questions with the same answer: "that's a weird question, Mr. G4tv.com interviewer, because why would I just randomly adapt a radical new concept for my games unless it made sense?" (He didn't actually say it like that). I, of course, smile and nod.

On if he's keen to develop games for this new audience…

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Preview »

There's an understandable focus on a certain shooter coming from Infinity Ward and Activision later this fall, but don't forget about what Electronic Arts and DICE have cooking up with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 -- the first game surprised a lot of people.

You're getting two for the price of one in this video preview of Dead Rising 2, Capcom's long-awaited sequel.

Mmm…virtual brains.

Dante's Inferno Lust Level Preview »

Dante's Inferno has a habit of eliciting some strong opinions. It's shaping up to be a very competent spin on God of War, but some of the content surrounding it has raised eyebrows. Electronic Arts premiered the sexually-charged "Lust" stage at Tokyo Game Show recently and X-Play's Morgan Webb quizzed executive producer Jonathan Knight about his team's aspirations for this area.

Sometimes, you just need to take two swords to hundreds upon hundreds of enemies in bloody and epic battles. Thankfully, Feel Plus’ Xbox 360 exclusive Ninety-Nine Nights II looks to be just the thing to scratch this particular itch, as evidenced by this in-game footage we grabbed from TGS 2009. I can’t really tell you if the game will be good or not, but the one question the footage does appear to answer is: What does a 978 hit combo looks like?

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles TGS 09 Interviews »

With the next major Resident Evil a long ways off (they're still figuring out who will produce the game through in-house poker games!), Capcom will be giving gamers more insight into the world of survival horror with Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. This is Capcom's second lightgun Resident Evil shooter on the Wii, but since the first was so well received, the team seems especially excited about the second one. At Tokyo Game Show, we talked to some of the folks behind the game about that.
