TGS Fun as Always! :D 09/20/2011

by Joe

Tokyo Game Show was a blast! :D This year’s event was smaller than the last two I attended, due to the March disaster, but my favourite companies were still there and countless droves of gamers from all over the world made it out :D Here are some pics!

After seeing all the big screen trailers and gameplay videos that I could, my two personal highlights were:

Final Fantasy XIII-2 – The trailer looked great! I wasn’t as excited as when I saw the FFXIII trailer last year, but it was still cool :D Nothing groundbreaking, though.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy – This trailer started off with quick flashes of every Final Fantasy with updated graphics. At first I thought, “Holy shit, are they remaking and releasing ALL the old-school Final Fantasy’s in one awesome package?!” But, then, alas, A Rock Band-esque rhythm battle system was shown, playing to the music of FFVI’s battle music. My hopes were dashed. That is until the video kept playing and the music from all of my favourite FFs filled the stage. My heart and mind remembered how much I love FF music and how you can’t have an FF game without the music. My inner child screamed with excitement and if this game gets released to North America, it may be reason enough to get a 3DS! :D

But! The biggest highlight was (and always will be!) the cosplayers :D

We had a great time and this TGS should be our last one, living in Japan. I definitely want to be back in the future! Maybe even be part of the show! :D

Enjoy Scene 16 – “Loud Neighbours”!

Took to long reading your post, missed being first :P Interesting scene, and I’m jealous, the game show looks like it was awesome :( :P

Xanag on September 20, 2011 at 2:52 pm

dude. i know! FF is (in my opinion) one of the greatest game series out there. i love the prelude song though. its just like.. everytime i hear that i automatically think of FF. :D

Alex apocalypse on September 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

wow that’s a lot of people and i think the best cosplayer was the last one!

mutant hunter on September 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

Probably just Rusty practicing with his new rifle :P

Xanag on September 20, 2011 at 2:57 pm

darn computer it said there was no comments o well still your doing great joe

the slayer on September 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm

… didn’t think that Jess was that insecure… yes she showed signs, but… it just didn’t seem her core was this flimsy.
Or maybe she did in fact invest more hope in Joe than she should have (being rational as she must be to survive)…
….poor Jess.

sh4d0wfl4re on September 20, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Is it just me or are the chapters getting shorter? That aside, I think that rusty probably got pissed off at someone and just shot him. Idk, but all I have to say is OH SHIT SOOOON!!!!

Matthew on September 20, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Need moar!!!! :D

"S" on September 20, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Rusty shoots a crossbow, not a gun, those were gunshots. he didnt get a rifle yet, until he joins the army.
@ Joe: It looks awsome, I wish I could have been there. Im thinking of makeing a few cutout charecters of my own, maybe have them at a beach with purple sand :)

Leviticus on September 20, 2011 at 3:51 pm

This episode blew my mind beyond all recognition

Highcalibur10 on September 20, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Been a while since I commented. The Comic is still going great, very interesting story!
Today was the first time a cliffhanger in this story made me go “no ._.”. So well done Joe, you finally got me.

Limepire on September 20, 2011 at 5:15 pm

That was great,that microsoft point is Xbox. Really cool too. Could’ve went to Japan with my big sister because she went there before, besides, awesome epi.

ZidaneRob on September 20, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Bernie: Nothing bad could POSSIBLY happen in this colony!
-Sounds of Guns and Screams-

I just love your style xD

Nick on September 20, 2011 at 7:54 pm

Lol Joe glad to hear you like squarenix so much.FF is my absolutely favourite franchise ever and i have always dreamed what would the old school FF-s look with today’s graphics it’s been my dream to see remakes of old ones but i guess its cool.Anyway awesome as always and well try to make less cliffhangers ^^.Bless your face

Dagzter on September 20, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Bernie you really need to stop saying things that get proven wrong in only a few seconds!

sykes on September 20, 2011 at 11:44 pm

If the guy who became crazy when someone stole his suit tells you to stay put, YOU STAY PUT ANNIKA!!!!!

NeoWarrior on September 21, 2011 at 12:27 am

In the words of admiral ackbar…ITS A TRAP

this is what you get when you bring an extremely powerful vampire into your human colony, he escapes and starts wiping it out…

ironpenguin on September 21, 2011 at 12:55 am

cool new sounds love um
and that fat japanes mario just looks awsome

ryan on September 21, 2011 at 1:01 am

You didn’t see Kingdom hearts!? you don’t like kingdom hearts D;!?

Well, i still love your comic T-T

Yay! on September 21, 2011 at 1:26 am

That girl with blue hair aiming a weapon up is cosplaying as “Blue Rose” From Tiger & Bunny, an excellent anime with a good plot and lots of advertising
Here’s a pic http://moeakiba.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/gonext001.jpg

JediVash on September 21, 2011 at 2:36 am

Oh and Joe (The real one :D) If u didnt happen to read my comment on the last episode then i will say that Joe i had problems with host papa again when i click submit it just pops me and error page with host papa name on it and error 406 or something and thats all i cant get past it or anything ill just have to wait until it clears out.

Dagzter on September 21, 2011 at 2:57 am

Joe the author, if some one hasn’t already said it but, the three girls one in black, another in green, and another in red they’re from vocaloids anime. Don’t know their names because I was never too interested in the anime.

Jordan on September 21, 2011 at 4:41 am

Those three girls from the second line are from left to right: Hatsune Miku BLACK ROCK SHOOTER version, Hatsune Miku classic version and MEIKO, all from the Vocaloid program.
And this FF game makes me want a 3DS so much D= FF songs are awesome =D

Hey Joe, have you ever head about Video Games Live? It’s a game music show, I loved it the first time I’ve gone =) It’ll happen again Oct 15 here in Brazil, I’ll post some photos of it at the forums.

Keter on September 21, 2011 at 6:36 am

Allright jordan, i dont know either but the blue haired one is…
hatsune miku!
These girls are virtual popstars in japan!

Acrontus on September 21, 2011 at 6:42 am

Oh, and the little girl with pink cosplay is Madoka Kaname from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

Keter on September 21, 2011 at 6:46 am

That’s not a nice place to leave a cliffhanger. You show us a vague outline of what’s happening, THEN you leave a cliffhanger. That’s how it works.

Locke on September 21, 2011 at 1:49 pm

OMG the guy in the Ryu costume looks exactly like me! No joke.

hyperboy on September 21, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Reading your Comic since Chapter 2 and I love it^^
Greetings From Germany^^

Some Guy From Germany on September 21, 2011 at 8:33 pm

Thanks for letting me know who those mystery cosplayers are!

@mutant hunter – Haha, thanks! Mine too!
@Leviticus – Please do! Purple sand? Looking forward to seeing it! :D
@Yay! – Oh yeah, I did see a Kingdom Hearts trailer! I forgot what console, but Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame was in it :D
@Some Guy From Germany – Thanks for reading! :D

Joe on September 21, 2011 at 8:49 pm

I guess a vampire tryied to shoot Rusty and drain him.
And Rusty used his Rusty-Power to kill the vampire ( thus stealing the gun ).

AJ,please,in a NEAR future,ADD VOICES! That would be awesome. And remove cliffhangers.

Btw,read Eragon.

Happy Vampire on September 21, 2011 at 10:35 pm

@Joe (the real one) 3DS It looks awesome .@@ Greetings

Yay! on September 22, 2011 at 1:20 am

That is the best EVA-01 cosplay I’ve ever seen.
Keep up the good work. Loving The Pocalypse and the tales of Author Joe vs The World

Batfink on September 22, 2011 at 1:26 am

@Happy Vampire Nraa, I think voices would ruin part of the comic.

Great comic Joe! :D Loving it!
