Death Game Production

nona

My favorite anime of last year was a show by the name of Death Parade. It’s about arbiters. People who judge the souls of humans after they die. Only they’re bartenders who make their guests play games which decide the fate of their souls. It’s an original story by Yuzuru Tachikawa and not a manga adaptation. Besides being fantastically animated by Madhouse, it has a really interesting and surprisingly moving story. I decided I wanted to cosplay the main character so I started planning on putting the costume together for February’s Katsucon. It’s a fairly simple outfit so it’d be perfect to still be able to move around and film in during the event.

Inside the Tokyo Game Show 2014!

RtP! had a wonderful time at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, due largely to our involvement as official press. We came equipped with multiple video cameras as well as a NEW MIC for interviews. Our passes allowed us to comfortably move through the crowded areas of the Makuhari event halls in order to check out what was going on and report on booth activities. There was a lot of big statues and booth creatures (dragons, monsters, Gundams and a massive Shenron) to catch the eyes of the many attendees. You could try out the new games with pretty booth girls to help you learn the controls. There wasn’t a lot of new big titles being shown or revealed at the show. We waited around the Sega booth for new Persona 5 footage that never came. How disheartening.

RtP! to Cover the Tokyo Game Show 2014!

We’ll be sending in the boys to tackle Japan’s largest video game show in September. Last year Lost Link almost met Kojima. What could happen this year? We’re hoping for some Persona 5 news as well as some Square Enix “we’ll always be in development” teases for KH3 or FFXV. And of course there’s always room for more Phantom Pain. We’ll also be checking out the indies and playable demos on the show floor. And Lost Link will most likely have the cosplay scene covered fully.

We’ll also be having a special guest fly down from Canada to join in our ultimate game coverage team. What mad things will he have to say? Probably nothing short of summer heat complaints.

TGS 2014 is September 20-21 2014 at the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba.
