"And what of Tokyo Game Show? As I've been telling everyone who will listen, this year's TGS really seemed to me to be like one of Microsoft's X0n events, where they bring journalists out to foreign countries to distract them with an international vacation and a screwed-up biological clock, then show them the same games they could see in America just as easily. I don't want TGS to become some kind of dog-and-pony show for the press where we stay in the New Otani hotel and talk to people who live in Seattle about Halo 3. I want to cover Japanese games. If said games are never going to be released in America, so much the better".
