Not knowing much about this new system I figured to post a topic here
Does anyone know if we can play all the games we've downloaded to our psps on the vita? Plus, has there been any talk about what is coming out for the vita?

I'm still listening to the new album and still enjoying it. There are a couple things I'll bring up though. James has a good voice and there will be songs where that is really displayed such as Far From Heaven, Breaking All Illusions and the other two slower tracks on the album (their names escape me). Then you have songs like BMU BMD...why does it need to sound angry and then have that screaming running through the chorus? I don't think I've listened to that song 2 times through yet. I find it incredibly out of place on this album. I used to think DT was above songs like that. It almost seems like a left over song from SC or BC&SL. Two albums which I have to say for the most part I don't like at all
.
Someone here said that DT was missing the "Magic" of old. I agree partly. I have to admit I prefer the lighter brighter more positive side of DT rather than the angry heavy metal side. I feel like any band can write that kind of music but DT has been above that that from time to time. I recently listened to some songs from 6DOIT. While musically I like most of it but the way James sings some of them I find it hard to listen to. Blind Faith is probably my favorite track on that album musically, but the way he sings the chorus Blind Faith is just painful to listen to. Why does he have to scream it? Even some of their older stuff...the songs are gorgeous but the singing is hard to understand at times what is actually being sung. Take a song like Another Day from I&W. It is a beautiful song...very emotional and a slower song by DT. There are parts that get to a point I can't really understand the lyrics because James is kind of singing/screaming them. I guess it was just his style back in the day. Today, mostly except for 80-90% of the new album he seems to sing in an angry style. Why? Lost Not Forgotten is a prime example and so is BMU BMD.  I think a song like The Count of Tuscany would be one of my favorites if it wasn't for the speed and angry sound of the middle section. The beginning and ending are so creative and magical sounding.

The funny thing about all this is that for most bands for whatever reason I wouldn't care this much. I don't know why that is other than I can say when I discovered DT their music made an impression on me. It sounded so fresh and creative from all the mindless rock and metal out there. DT wasn't afraid to do what wasn't popular. They wanted to be original and have a sound their own. I just wish they would still fully embrace that instead of now some 20+ years later trying to sound like other bands. I will say the new album is a step in the right direction. I just hope on the next album they push forward down this same path. Leave all the generic metal cliches behind and be themselves again.

Only time will tell. But one has to wonder how many albums do they actually have left in them. I mean, the older we get I would imagine it gets harder and harder to play such complex music. Aren't most of the guys in their mid or late 40s now?

Just purchased CC. It looks great running on the PSP in full screen mode. Played for about an hour and seems like an awesome game. I may still pick up CT. Is it bad to play CC before CT?

I mean if the psp machine fails I guess your out of luck with a umd copy but a psn download you could play on both the psp and ps3 if I understand that correctly.

I don't know where you got that idea, but it's completely false (though I bet a lot of people wish it were true).  The only games that work on both the PSP and PS3 and PSOne Classics and Minis.  PSP games are PSP-only, whether they be UMD or download versions.  Though download versions will work with the Vita.


Yeah, guess that's what I meant...the PSone's play on ps3.

I was wondering as prices of games drop does it make more sense to buy the umd version of a game or the download from PSN? For instance, Tactics Ogre is now $20 at both places. I mean if the psp machine fails I guess your out of luck with a umd copy but a psn download you could play on both the psp and ps3 if I understand that correctly. I was just curious what is more popular nowadays?

I actually am a little surprised that Chrono Trigger is $10. That seems a bit high for such an old game that isn't that long. I can see why games like FF VII, VIII, IX, and even Chrono Cross are $10 but not CT.
26  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PSone Classics PSN rpgs on: November 08, 2011, 08:38:26 AM
Chrono Cross is out today! Anyone interested in purchasing it? Think I will, cause I still haven't played it but I'm on the fence about Chrono Trigger if it isn't a great version of the game.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PSone Classics PSN rpgs on: November 06, 2011, 07:15:14 PM
I'm a little late hearing the news of more RPGs coming soon to PSN. Everyone talks about how great Chrono Trigger is around here but I have to admit I never had the opportunity to play it before. Should I check this out now on PSN or go straight for Chrono Cross? Or do you recommend both. Heck, I'm still having a blast witih Front Mission 3.

I'd either go for the Wii's VC version or the DS version since the PSN version contains lengthy load times.


Not only that, but it may be better in some ways to just play CC first so you don't have the whole "this is the sequel to CT!" thing hanging over it. It's largely stand alone, but has enough significant tie ins it can be worth playing CT beforehand. I wouldn't say to the point of playing the PSN version though, not when the VC and DS versions are out there.

Yeah, I do remember seeing Chrono Trigger a while back for the DS and I didn't know about a version for the Wii. I find it more annoying though having versions of games across many platforms. First of all, I don't game much anymore but when I do I find it easier to just have all the games I'm interested in in one location. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I find it easy this way.

While Breaking All Illusions is easily the best song on Dream Theater's new album I'm actually loving the song Outcry on the same album. Simply amazing.

Anime & RPGl and  Do you have Shining the holy Ark or Shining  Wisdom for your Saturn? Both great titles if you can find them. Also, as mentioned by Zyco, the megadrive/genesis greatest hits has a couple of shining games. Sadly as stated, It was all downhill after the saturn.

Unfortunately, I don't have either one of those titles. I'll look around and see if anyone is parting with them. Thanks.
