Other than 3 Kingdom Hearts games, were there any big announcements?

Overall, pretty tame and uninspired TGS.

If there had been any other major RPG-related announcements at Tokyo Game Show, you would have been able to read about them on the front page of this site. In case this is about game announcements in general, you posted your topic in the wrong forum.

Personally, I was totally unimpressed with this year's Tokyo Game Show. Apart from the three Kingdom Hearts games and that new Front Mission title, pretty much everything had been announced beforehand. After Electronic Entertainment Expo, the Japanese third party publishers had originally pledged to make their big announcements at Tokyo Game Show. However, even if they count the stuff that was announced in the week leading up to the show, there weren't really that many big announcements.

Seriously?  On a scale from 1 to 10, the show gets a .5.

Not five, POINT five.

One fuckin new DS game piqued my interest.  Nothing else!  I didn't even get my SO4 details!

SEGA ANNOUNCES SHIT RACERS.

VROOM.

Here's a new game: I call it PS3 Paper Weight.  ...Well, not really a new game.

As a 360/DS owner I was quite happy, and Marvelous has made me interested in a Wii. I'm well aware that the PS2 era is pretty much over in Japan so I didn't expect to see any PS2 games. But seeing Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, Dragon Quest IV, Final Fantasy IV, Tales of Innocence, and Level 5's DS games will satisfy my RPG hunger for a while to come. The ASH media recently released was also quite nice, I like the way the battles look. And of course I'm talking strictly RPGs here, and I didn't even get to see the Dragon Quest IX trailer that was there.

The first day was great.  Then it just kinda halted though.

I didn't pay full attention to everything about TGS, but from the news I see here, and other places, I was not impressed. It was nice to see some DS stuff, and I greatly liked the inclusion of the Dancer job for FFXI. Everything else didn't interest me. I am not much of a Kingdom Hearts fan honestly.

I felt there were a lot of great games released this year, and not just RPGs, but 'tis a sad year for gaming industry events.

Overall the show was a real disappointment. Not worse than the last E3 but pretty close. I only saw four pieces of information that interested me.

1. That a demo of Inazuma Eleven was passed out, but I haven't heard more about it since then so I can't really call it a win yet until I see anything from the demo.

2. The trailer for Vanillaware's Oboro Muramasa Youtouden.

3. The Kingdom Hearts game on DS(I know the name, I just refuse to type/say it), and that's just because I have a soft spot for Organization XIII. I have very little affection for anything besides them in the franchise.

4. Sega's Valkyrie of the Battlefield.

I saw a lot of Lost Odyssey and Ninja Gaiden 2 footage so I'm happy.

Ninja Gaiden 2 looks slightly better than the first. I watched 1up's comparison clips and was disappointed the improvements are marginal.

Ninja Gaiden DS on the other hand, had me stoked! I'm dying to find out just how awesome the touchscreen controls are.

Oboro Muramasa looks fantastic! I just hope it deals with the flaws of Odin Sphere though, namely severe lag and repetitive game play. It looks like it can be done on the PS2 though... I might buy a Wii just for this.

Ryu ga Gotoku 3 and Bumpy Trot 2 are convincing me to get a PS3. I'd see how the pricing and packaging of the new controller goes.

Lost Odyssey is the Final Fantasy VIII I'd been waiting for.

ASH is pretty. I'm concerned about comments that the characters are too small on screen...

No More Heroes ... is another letdown. It looks like Killer 7 part II without any improvements on the graphics front. So why couldn't it be done on the Game Cube?

Infinite Undiscovery has potential. I"m keeping an eye on it.

Games that should have showed up but did not:

Contra 4 DS
Tales of Symphonia 2: Ratatoskr no Kishi (or Knight of Ratatosk )

Overall, I'm pretty happy with TGS 2007. I'm just cautiously optimistic about the so-called HD era, for I see some games are still retaining the standards of the previous generation.

Because it's being designed with the Wii's control scheme in mind. That's the whole point of the console, new gameplay over more powerful graphics. It's not like Killer7 was excelling in the technical field anyway.

I agree on it disappointing me, but not on in a technical and graphical sense. I hardly care how a game looks as long as it plays good, and while No More Heroes certainly doesn't set a new standard "next generation" graphics I really like the art style. But my beef with the game is that it just seems repetitive and boring as the battle system seems to be simple button mashing/remote flinging and shallow. I'll still probably get it sooner or later, but I have lost a lot of interest already.

Agreed. Not once was I really flippin' out.

Most exciting thing for me was FFIV DS footage, and the only thing I really liked there was the FMV. I just beat FFIII DS and I have plenty of complaints about it ... I am praying that they work HARD to make FFIV DS a better experience.

I agree TGS was kinda disappointing this year but, the MGS4, Metal Gear Online and DMC4 trailers sure made me a happy gamer, can't wait for those.

-edit- I can't spell.
