Not ordinarily my cup of tea, but last weekend I checked out the <a href="http://tgs.cesa.or.jp/english/index.htm">Tokyo Game Show</a>, a big video-game trade show (open to the public for two of the days of its run) at Chiba's Makuhari Messe convention center. Heavy-duty game geek action, as some 500 new games were on hand.

It was, more or less, my idea to come: I mentioned the Show (which I'd read about in the previous day's <i>International Hearld Tribune</i> to my friend Liz and her out-of-town visitor, <a href="http://blogs.bootsnall.com/theglobaltrip/">Erik of The Global Trip 2004</a> blog. Liz didn't think he'd be interested; I knew he would be.

Still not my cup of tea, but a fascinating spectacle nonetheless.
