2401  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 06, 2008, 02:03:03 PM
In terms of great PSP games, here's what I've played and loved.  I'll put an asterisk next to RPGs.

God of War
FFT *
Jeanne d'Arc *
Syphon Filter (both of them, although I prefer the first)
Disgaea *
Burnout Legends
Patapon (more OK than "loved" - sort of RPG - see my review)
X-Men Legends II *
Puzzle Quest (sort of RPG)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance *
Killzone (more OK than "loved")
Pursuit Force (second one's better than the first)
I love the Katamari games, although I haven't played it on PSP
Dungeon Siege is OK
Justice League Heroes is pretty good
I thought both of the Untold Legends games were OK, too.

Anyway, that's a bunch, and I may have missed one or two.
2402  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Yahtzee does Oblivion on: June 05, 2008, 07:49:39 AM
Yahtzee's establishing a dangerous precedent here - two RPGs in a row.  This week, he reviewed Oblivion.  A strange choice, seeing how long it's been out, but who cares - it's funny stuff. :)

It's like how legendary adult heroes seal the supreme evil demonic overlord away and he comes back after 1000 years more pissed off than ever and a bunch of children have to defeat it.



HAHAHAHAHA!  Nicely done. :)

De Rais' is somewhat off...


Yeah... I'm actually kind of glad I don't know the true history better than I do.  Makes it easier to think of them as just fictional people not really based on anyone.

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.
2408  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 03, 2008, 08:01:49 AM
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.
2412  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.
2413  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?

2415  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.
