Joystiq hands-on: PaRappa the Rapper (PSP)

When we heard PaRappa the Rapper was coming to the PSP, we were elated. When we discovered it would simply be a remake of the original title, we were conflicted. While we adore the original PaRappa, we also wouldn't mind a new installment to the franchise, with lessons learned from the underwhelming...

TGS 06: Lost Regnum impresses

One game that we haven't heard a lot about is Goshow's Lost Regnum, but the game, which is a dungeon-crawling hack 'n slasher, found its way to the Tokyo Game Show. While currently it doesn't seem likely the game will make its way across the pond, IGN says the gameplay is straightforward enough...

TGS: Viewing Viva Piņata

Viva Piñata was our first in a series of Microsoft press events being held yesterday during the first day of the open-to-the-public portion of the Tokyo Game Show. Safely huddled away from the unwashed gaming masses filling the Makuhari Messe convention center to within an inch of its legal...

Joystiq hands-on: Fuzion Frenzy 2 (Xbox 360)

Most of us know Fuzion Frenzy as that demo Xbox junkies play when they are sick of Halo but are too lazy to change discs. The full game was a fun but ultimately forgettable collection of minigames. Microsoft is giving the IP another go, and we got to check out one of the minigames from Fuzion Frenzy...

TGS: Ridge Racer 7 demo attracts loyal fan

It seems all that burning rubber and gratuitous nitro boosting in the Ridge Racer 7 demo took its toll on a lone PS3. Kotaku snapped this picture of a Sony rep bravely averting disaster by pointing some sort of advanced cooling mechanism into the console's compartment. System anomalies crop up at...

Sony's Bauhaus booth: a black beauty

Sony's presence dominates the TGS show floor once again this year. In addition to leasing the most square footage (for the most fanboy frottage), Sony makes their presence felt through booth architecture that skillfully mixes art and technology. Almost completely devoid of ornamentation, the...

Joystiq hands-on: Lost Planet multiplayer (Xbox 360)

The following is a compilation of the best scenes we either experienced or watched during our time with Lost Planet's multiplayer game. Other than a few minor drops in framerate, we were very impressed with the 8-player battle. As our experience was only system link, it'll be interesting to see how...

TGS: DOAX2 passes the "one hand" test

Let's be honest: there is no reason to play Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 other than to gawk at the pixelated softcore porn. The gameplay is Xtremely simplistic to the point of boredom. With that perspective in mind, we can safely say that DOAX2 is easily playable using only one hand (we'll let you make...

TGS: Gears of War, WRU?!

Killzone 2 isn't the only highly anticipated shooter not rocking the TGS show floor this year. Epic Games' upcoming 360 would-be killer-app Gears of War isn't playable on the show floor, though it is represented in video and pamphlet form at Microsoft's booth. So why is it that a surefire hit, just...
