Tokyo Game Show 2013 Highlights

Bit Gamer: The Tokyo Games Show 2013 is the quintessential gaming trade show, complete with cacophonous music, cosplayers galore, the inevitable scantily clad 'booth babes', ogling teens and an avalanche of advertisements posing as collectible freebies. In other words, it's madness. Although, this being Japan, it's an extremely polite and efficient sort of madness. For some games the public are queuing for three hours or more to play a fifteen minute demo, but the mood is never anything less than cheerful.

Of course, having a press pass and pre-arranged appointments helps a lot with time-saving, allowing us to get our hands on more than one or two games per day. So, what's good this year? (Culture, Tokyo Game Show)
