TGS – Taipei Game Show 2007

Today, my classmate Tambi and I went to the Taipei Game Show at the Taipei World Trade Center. On the way, we passed by a building holding the International Cosmetics Exhibition. We were asked by the gentleman below to take a picture with him and gladly obliged much to the satisfaction of the couple dozen or so people around.

Say Cheese!

This woman’s friend asked us to take a picture together… It was impossible to say no:

The group from the Cosmetics Exhibition was so nice that we’re tempted to go there tomorrow just to see if they are all still there.

Despite it being noon on a workday… crowds managed to make it to the game show:

Many of the booths were for Chinese language online RPGs that I can’t even begin to understand.

Security at the function was a little over the top

At the World of Warcraft area

Microsoft was the only home console maker present, Sony and Nintendo were no-shows.

See you next year!

This weekend I’ll be visiting Kaohsiung for the first time! I am sure I’ll have some pictures sometime early next week.

  1. Todd,

    A friend who runs a tech magazine linked to my article on Taoyuan Nights about TGS, and I’m getting 100 hits/hour vs. the usual 100 hits/day. And my first link is to your article… so in case you’re wondering where any extra traffic came from… 🙂

    Mu.
