Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

Without questions, Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus is the best camera smartphone the Cherry Mobile has to date. We haven’t seen other Cherry Mobile phones that are capable of taking photos with impressive quality than the one we brought to Japan to cover Tokyo Game Show 2018. If you have been following our Instagram posts (@gadgetpilipinas) during our coverage of the TGS 2018, our daily driver was the Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus.  So, feast your eyes and take a look at some of our photos: For high-resolution photos, go  to this link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1HwHBWNh2WYceTywxiNBhxNKbZuGyz988?usp=sharing We’ve got to hold our horses so we don’t spoil too much of our TGS experience with photos.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter. Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic. Check them out and drool. And, this just in, here’s the story trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuAM-b7m3iw Our Tokyo Game Show 2018 Coverage is brought to you by our brand partners: Huawei Mobile Philippines, PLDT Home Fibr, Smart and Cherry Mobile.
