Well, of course you wanted to go to Tokyo Game Show - who wouldn't? But you didn't. Maybe sushi makes you retch, maybe an expensive plane ride and week-long jetlag didn't sound cool, maybe you were afraid you wouldn't be allowed back into the US all because of that mishap with the senator's daughter and that video. Whatever.

The point is, GamesRadar is here for you. Or, rather, we're over there for you. So park yourself right where you are and live secure in the knowledge that we'll tell you everything you need to know. And the only Japanese word we recommend you learn is "Asahi".
