Friday Video: Celebrating remakes

Lately, we've had remakes on the brain, and foremost among them seems to be Final Fantasy IV. Maybe it's just because we're crazy about the franchise, but we also like the love and care that Square Enix puts into their remake efforts. Due to that, the trailer from this year's TGS just doesn't get...

Tales of Shakonia

This trailer for next year's Tales of Symphonia sequel is looking pretty good, but we'll warn you that it's a little on the shaky side. Yep, just when you thought we were done with TGS, a few last minute items keep popping up, like this little gem. We know a lot of people have mixed feelings...

Joystiq interviews Team Ninja's Tomonobu Itagaki

It's not too long into our interview with Tomonobu Itagaki before he issues us with an impromptu challenge.

Whenever questioned about what exactly Japan's official Square Enix store is and what it represents, we feel compelled to swivel...

TGS Video Games Museum highlights Japan's taste

Hidden away at the very end of the second hall at Tokyo Game Show was a booth dedicated to, supposedly, showcasing top of the class video games from generations past. Several stations were set up, around 12 or so, which allowed gamers to step back in time and play those great games that perhaps...

TGS hands-on: Final Fantasy Ring of Fates multiplayer

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the Gamecube was a bit of a hit-and-miss title. Touted as a multiplayer roleplaying experience, the game required you to have access to four Gameboy Advances (and three friends) to fully enjoy. The lackluster single player mode meant many were put off before...

TGS hands-on: No More Heroes

Given the over-the-top action and exuberant style found in Grasshopper Manufacture's No More Heroes, it came as a great relief to learn that the game's control scheme wasn't similarly vigorous. There's nothing worse than an action game that translates fairly familiar tasks into manic swatting for...

TGS hands-on: Cooking Mama 2

Scouring the show floor at TGS is hungry work, but when all the eateries are full of the Dreaded Public where can you get the sustenance you require? We tried our luck at the Cooking Mama 2 booth, just in case they had some tasty swag to give away. Sadly, there was none. While we were there,...
