Just returned from the con, so exhausting. I was only planning on attending Friday but was able to score a comp pass from a relative and went on Saturday also. Scoped out the Capcom booth, they had playable demos of Monster Hunter 3, Dead Rising 2, Ghost Trick, Okamiden, and of course MvC3. They also ran the Megaman Universe trailer in one of the kiosks. Tried out the Ghost Trick demo, definitely picking it up when it hits.

They also had the PS Move demos set up. Tried out the 'Fight' game, not quite as responsive as I'd hoped.

Not only was there no new info, but the actual gameplay segment went horribly wrong. The game ran in grayscale the entire time, the audio was distorted at the beginning, and the display even cut out at one point. Didn't help that one side was completely obliterating the other, making for a boring match. The last part of the panel was just them playing the 'remixed' BG music for Cap, Chun, Ryu, and Iron Man, which I didn't really care for. Fortunately the SF4 panel on Saturday made up for that disaster, and the whole room went nuts when SFXT was shown. As for the whole Darkstalkers bit, I think Ono was just toying with the crowd and already got the green light to do it. Here's hoping he can do the exclusive reveal of it at the con next year. Not much action at Nintendo's tiny booth other than playable Metroid Other M and Dragon Quest IX. What gives, Nintendo? Can't even show off the 3DS? Lame. Konami didn't really have much other than Yugioh and Karaoke Revolution demos, so I passed on that. There were some nice [URL=http://www.imagebam.com/image/0db61990122898]Snake figures on display[/URL] at the Square Enix booth though. Overall, a pretty solid con this year, with only a few disappointments. [URL=http://www.imagebam.com/image/41dd8690117475]Dan approves.[/URL]
