Cool Innovations, Weirdness & Booth Babes: Our Pictures of the Tokyo Game Show 2014

Ever wonder what it’s like inside the Tokyo Game Show? We used our press passes (no doubt given to us as some kind of clerical error) to give you a peek behind the screen of the first industry-only day, which was held yesterday.

The main attraction was hands-on demos of eagerly-anticipated games like Bloodborne

Call of Duty

FIFA 15

And The Order, whose infuriatingly poorly organised demo (each group of nine had to watch a ten-minute tutorial before they played rather than while in line) had us queueing for almost two hours. But would you complain to this guy?

There were also a bunch of cool and original games in the indy section which, of course, had bean bag chairs

This game, Lurking, a stealth title which forces players to see using sounds, was particularly interesting

And we enjoyed watching other people play Lightning Fighter 2, which forces players to pedal as part of the controls

There were lots of interesting uses of virtual reality (we’ll have a whole article up on them soon). Although the schoolgirl-ogling simulator had been pulled there was still lots of probably-not-paedophilic ogling

This game took the crown for most bizarrely sexual though

There were tanks

Robots

Dragons

And monster-deer things

A few town mascots showed up and posed for pictures. Here’s Sento-kun, Nara’s own monster-deer thing

This isn’t a mascot though, this is just a girl dressed as a panda

There was lots of cool and weird merchandise for sale (see more here)

And, of course, what many of you have no doubt skipped through the rest of the article to see, plenty of gorgeous booth babes…

And when the day was over and everyone was glad to be finishing work to head home and relax with some video games, a few of the booth babes stuck around to finally get their turn
