Heck, if you just plain like strategy RPGs, the PSP is a great system to get.  There are at least a few really good action RPGs on it as well, and there's a ton of other good stuff on it, some of which can be had pretty cheap these days.

(No disrespect to the DS - tons of great stuff on it, too.)

My only disappointment is that I couldn't play my new PSP on my old TV.  The accessory said I could, but that's only for stuff other than games, which, uh, is kind of the reason why I got it.


That was sad for me too - if I remember right, it's not really clear from the packaging that you can only play movies on old-style TVs.  I really wanted to be able to hook that puppy up to my laptop (I have a USB video in card) and record videos or even just play on a nice, big screen. :(

...the translation was like, 6000 times better. :P


Amen to that, brother.  I was serious in my review - the level of "awful" in the translation the first time around singlehandedly stopped me not only from enjoying the game, but from even playing it.  The PSP version rolled around, and it was Awesome City.

Agreed - it's a very good game.  Even with the fact that there are a bunch of strategy RPGs on the PSP, it's well worth playing.  The mechanic of trying to get your enemies ALMOST dead so you can zip around eliminating them in one turn is awesome.

Creepy. Reminds me of The Wizard of Oz with that one song...Dark Side of the Moon?


It's the whole album:

Quote from: "Akanbe-"
The new plasmas coming out are great, the problem is, there is a lot of misinformation going around about them.  Some of the myths going around, used to be true, but are not anymore (like burn-in).


Thanks - I haven't looked into it in a really focused way in a while.

I had it until a couple years ago.


Me too.  It was available where I live before that - it was just more expensive than I was willing to pay.
2303  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Iron Man on: May 22, 2008, 07:54:38 AM
Yeah - I just read an article this morning about those movies.  Apparently, the Cap movie is titled "The First Avenger: Captain America," and it's being released 6 weeks (or was it months?) before the Avengers movie.
2304  The Rest / General Discussions / I'm O.K. playthrough video - the Jack Thompson game on: May 21, 2008, 09:01:26 PM
Thought this was pretty interesting - it's a video of the game some folks made in response to Jack Thompson's challenge to make a game where the player killed video game designers... and if you don't know what I'm talking about from that, feel free to check wikipedia or penny arcade or something. :D

Had been avoiding posting this... but people who know me in real life already know I'm here, so here's a picture I took of myself when I was in India this spring.  I'm kinda squinty because of the sun, but who cares?

2306  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / LCD vs. Plasma on: May 19, 2008, 11:25:26 AM
LCD is the way to go.  The issues Plasma had have been reduced, but LCD's still a better choice.  Burn-in and cost are the most easy to cite, but I believe there are refreshing issues as well - if something's not refreshing fast enough, you get blur.
2307  Media / Miscellaneous Games / A Ghostbusters game? WE GOT OOOOOOOOOONE! on: May 19, 2008, 10:57:18 AM
Quote from: "Lard"
Am I the only one who's excited for this game?


Nope.  I'd probably put myself in the "cautiously optimistic" camp, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

In the recent(-ish) Civil War storyline, the government finally made the superhero registration thing mandatory.  Every superpowererd person was supposed to tell the government who they really were.  Some thought it was the right thing to do, others didn't.  Tony was the leader of the side who said they should register.  He convinced Peter Parker to go public, following his example from a few years prior (Wikipedia says Tony Stark revealed his identity in 2002).

Captain America was the leader of those who said they shouldn't, which was supposed to be a real shocker, but was actually really obvious, mostly because he'd be the guy the company would think of as a "surprising" choice.  He ended up getting shot and killed at the end of the storyline.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness - Just grinding right now, as I couldn't beat chapter 8 because no one could do damage to two of the enemies on the first stage (and I ran out of SP restorative items.)


Did you take out the geo panel thingys?  A quick reminder of the level from a walkthrough made me think that level might be a lot easier if you do.
2310  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs and Homosexuality on: May 18, 2008, 12:09:37 AM
For some reason, this conversation just reminded me of Planescape: Torment.  Specifically, Fall-from-Grace, the succubus who runs the Brothel for Slaking Intellectual Lusts.  That was a cool portrayal of something sexual.

I also fall into the camp where some of my favorite characters are nothing like me.  I can't think of any games I've played where the character was a homosexual male (I'm a straight guy), so I can't think back to a game to see what my reaction to that particular difference was.  I liked Captain Jack in Doctor Who, though...
