    TGS 2012 doesn’t had interesting new reveals but the trailer and demo of Metal Gear Rising are enough for me to be satisfied with the event.

    JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and the latest Phoenix Wright game are interesting too. Too bad Project X Zone and SRW OG weren’t listed. But with awards or not, those are awesome games for me.

    • Amaterasu4

      Que bueno amigo XD

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      The demo of MGR:R was worth the price of admission alone. It blew me away and cemented Platinum Games as the sole masters of the action genre (for me personally).

    A lot of interesting games, especially Soul Sacrifice and Bravely Default for me. But no surprises at all. It’s time for the next generation.
