Post-TGS 2009: What's in a Name? (Not Much)
I have to assume that these games spotted on the TGS show floor sound super-exciting in the original Japanese.
Yikes, really tempting the Metacritic fates here.
Multi Raid Special
Wait a minute … Generic Japanese Video Game Title Generator Bot 1.0, is this your handiwork? I thought you were retired! You old dog.
Just to make sure, there's no way this game isn't about male whores, right? OK, whew. I thought it was just me.
Finally, an RPG that appeals to German psychological theorists.
"Hey, do you want to play this new dragoon game I got?"
"Did I mention the dragoons are archaic?"
"I must play that game immediately."
Bounty Hounds Online
I don't think the cutesy colorful game on the screen below the banner is Bounty Hounds Online, but then again, I really hope it is.
Cruz Del Sur
There are already complaints online about the wildly varying difficulty in this game. The shuffleboard quest was a piece of cake but damn if people aren't spending hours trying to conquer the buffet line.
Unidentified Mysterious Animal
Figured I'd wrap things up with one good name. I'm genuinely looking forward to UMA.
