The timing difference makes it hard for me to stay awake and watch.

Man, the 'new' info on the new Guilty Gear's super disappointing. No new footage, no news on the new mechanics, nothing. Just a release date (March 3rd) and a lot of talk about the animation.

Scant new footage shown off, but at least there will be another trailer toward the end of September.

May was confirmed, which is cool.

Kinda off topic: I really am searching for a gaming channel that covers more oriented japanese games. I really liked Darmiani and Ben from Easy Allies, Collin Moriarty and, surprisingly, I also thought Kotaku's was pretty interesting.
Anyone knows any channels/podcasts that have this kind of information?
Nobody talked about AI The Somnium Files. Nobody! It's an Uchikoshi, fro Chirst's sake!

I just got back. Was walking by and the producer of ryu ga gotoku, Nagoshi, was sitting there with no one lining up to take a picture with him. Right next to the 2 girls bathing in money. I took a picture with him and said thank you. After, my mind was racing with things to tell him like "your region locked games were one of the reason I learned Japanese, ryu Ga gotoku testing the limits with its adult themes" and "thank you for being here after recovering from a heart attack" so I went by again to see if he was free. The chair was empty, like I had imagined the whole thing but I still have my pictures with him to prove it happened.

There was also a photo in a SSR card with a ryuji goda cosplayer (I don't think it was the VA) and the producer of the mobile game taking the pictures instead of being the subject of pictures! I got them to both take a picture together. Makes me wonder who the 2 people taking pictures at the Nagoshi area were. One was an older but still pretty woman and another guy who looked very ordinary.

I didn't try any demos just got random handouts. Was my first TGS and I left satisfied. Public days are fine. Go before lunch though before booths close and free stuff runs out.

Was funny to see the indies (mostly foreign but Japanese too) sponsored by the switch but in a seperate building with merchandise shops. Even the game schools were in the same building as the industry leaders.
