Tokyo Game Show 2010 Part 3

Wheeew! Sorry for much delay. I went to the doctor yesterday and she told me I am 80% healed. I am allowed prolonged use of computer as long as I take a break every 30 minutes. So, without further delay, here’s the last installment of my visit to the Tokyo Game Show.

Where were we? Oh.

K-On PSP Game

I saw promotion for the K-On PSP game in Akihabara the day before. It wasn’t to be released until the October 1st, so I was kind of sad. So excited when I see the K-On game demo area, I was so ready to queue. Too bad, there was no queue. They had already assigned time slots to gamers who had queue earlier that day. Sad. Oh well. I will pick the game up when it gets to Jakarta.

Tokyo Game Show 2010 Part 1


207,647 people visited the Tokyo Game Show this year making it the biggest video game show of the year. I feel very fortunate that James and I were able to attend! Nothing was more exciting in previewing latest and upcoming games in the sea of sweaty sweaty gamers. Yeah, I was one of them too. It felt like of the hottest day eve outside, and there was a sewa of people inside. I was in my tank top and quite weak to cold, but even though the AC was blasting in the convention hall I didn’t feel much breeze.

One virtue of Japanese gamers that I commend is their patience. They do not mind queuing, sometimes for hours, for a turn on game demo and to buy games merchandise – which most, I found out later, are not exclusive to the event. What about us? I’ll tell you what happened in the second part of my TGS 2010 post.

Hime Went to Nakano Broadway

Hello minna! Ohisashiburi desu.

I officially returned to my country two days ago. I can’t believe that I am not in Japan anymore. Just about two weeks ago, me and James were so excited as we hurried to pass through immigration, hopped on the train, left our luggage at our hotel (checked in was not until 2PM) and went straight to Nakano Broadway, another otaku heaven in Tokyo aside from Akihabara.

In front of Nakano Broadway

Getting to Nakano Broadway was quite easy. From Shinjuku We took JR Chuo Line Rapid to Nakano Station (not to be confused with Higashi Nakano). From there we followed the map that I had printed up from One up‘s website; pictured below:

If you decide to use this map, please ignore where that pointy end of the cloud bubble is indicating; Nakano Broadway, along with ‘One up’ is located on the green rectangle on the map.

We went through Nakano dori on the way to Nakano Broadway. It was after 11AM, and the sun was shinning brightly.

Otaku Hime is Getting Married Tomorrow

In 14 hours or so, I will be walking down the aisle.
I’m getting married to this wonderful man :)

I’m so excited!! Anyways, I need some sleep since I will be getting up at 3:30 AM. That’s less than 6 hours from now.

OMG!! I’m getting married!!!!

Japanese Food Binging in ION Orchard, Singapore

I’ve read somewhere that Singapore is the most Japan loving country in the world. I think it is very true. I went there about 3 weeks ago and had a chance to experience it for myself. The abundance of Japanese food and goods is the most I have seen in one country outside Japan so far. I was quite surprised with the amount of Japanese food I was surrounded with. The most notable is ION Orchard; it was filled with so much Japanese stuff.

Here’s an ode to the good Japanese stuff a la ION Orchard.
