Tokyo Game Show is firmly focused on news concerning the Japanese gaming community, this week did see a flurry of gaming announcements that applied to US gamers as well: Katamari Damacy was announced for PS Vita, PixelJunk Lifelike formally changed its name to (the much sleeker) PixelJunk 4am, PS Vita’s mindbending puzzle-RPG Gravity Rush released new details and (gorgeous) new screens, and a new video walkthrough for UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss.
In addition to our top 10 posts below, this week also saw a lengthy video showing off
Starhawk’s outer space combat, the long-awaited debut gameplay trailer for Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD for PS3, a Tetris championship aimed at PS3 players, details on the single-player experience in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and an October 4th release date for PSN Eufloria.
