Excellent biggrin

The PSP's going to be THE handheld to own for tactics fans with this, Disgaea: Portable (...I think it's still coming out...) & Jeanne D'Arc in its line-up. 

Well I saw Disgaea:Portable in the store today (albeit in Japan and for about 6000 yen) so I assume that it's coming!

5203  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP demos? on: December 13, 2006, 12:39:17 PM
I played it.  I don't know what I thought about the game but I loved the music! I guess I must be living in Japan for too long.  Strangely enough I'm having a tough as hell time downloading anything from the American Playstation site.  After clicking on "Games and Demos" or whatever it takes me to a screen with a blue background and a PS symbol in the upper right corner with the current time but nothing else!  Am I missing some important drivers or something?  I have Javascript turned on and I have Flash turned on but I'm not seeing anything.
5204  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP demos? on: December 13, 2006, 10:45:23 AM
Well I just got my now un-bricked PSP back from Sony (actually got it back a while ago but it was at the girlfriends). It's updated to 3.01 firmware.  I think I'm going to update it every time there's a new firmware release to keep me from being tempted to downgrade smile  Do the North American PSP's have the Portable TV option?  Mine does but it takes me to a Japanese site.  Great if I want to download Japanese idol videos for 105 yen a pop but I'd like to try some english stuff.

Also, where are all the PSP demos?  For some reason I had the idea that there were going to be tons of them but I'm having difficulty finding more than a couple.  I tried WTS Soccer 06 and found that to be a TON of fun.  I don't know if I'll get the full game but for the price it was certainly worth the download!!

So can anybody hook me up with some demos other than Lemmings, WTS 06, Moto GT, Ridge Racer or Loco Roco?

As an aside, I saw a demo of Jeane D'arc at BicCamera today.  I could have bought it for $35 but didn't think there would be any point since my Japanese knowledge hovers slightly above zero and my knowledge of kanji is even worse.  It looks friggen beautiful on the PSP though.  And if I didn't know better I could have sworn that I saw a Disgaea:Portable game for the PSP.  I had no idea that such a thing existed

Hey guys,
the hype for this game seemed to die down very quickly here at GT.


I think most people are waiting for the bloody patch to be released before they keep playing.  I know I am anyways.
5206  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP System Software Question on: December 11, 2006, 01:55:08 PM
I heard that updating screws up the PSP's ability to play full screen movies off of the memory card.  Well to say "screw up" would suggest that it was accidental.  I think Sony purposely borked it.

Hello Xbox bias anyone?  The PS2 is still oustandingly successful and that is simply chalked up to 'replacement for dead PS2's' ?  Judging by most of the complaints on these forums lately I'd have to say that it's the Xbox 360 that has inflated statistics due to breakdowns!  Perhaps it says a lot that people would rather replace their PS2 than buy an Xbox.

As for the PSP, I dunno it's doin ok.  Obviously Nintendo is kicking it's ass but it's not too far behind the PS2 and Xbox 360 in sales.

Cut the crap with this "Xbox bias" BS.  Hello PS2 bias?  Remember this?

It seems you have an issue when someone prefers the Xbox to the PS2.  You're more guilty of bias than those you are calling out.


LOL Graham has that been burning up inside of you for the past four months?  I'm glad you were finally able to get it out of your system.

Actually yeah I was posting in the General forum for the PSP.  I think it would be best to avoid the general forums for ALL of the consoles as they seem to attract the idiots who have nothing better to do.

Do we know that they were all lining up for Blue Dragon?  According to the article on Kotaku, a Gundam game and Ryoku (something) 2 were also being released today.

Hmm I dunno about that.  But they told us that it would be totally updated to the latest firmware.  My girlfriend still has it at her place so I havent had a chance to check it out yet.
5218  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Japanese Wii Safety Manual on: December 06, 2006, 03:37:56 PM
I don't doubt that it's real.  You should have seen the manuals I got for my Sony NHD mp3 player and my bicycle.  Both contained a plethora of pictures of the absolutely worst, most tragic things that might happen to you if you used the products.  They were hilarious.  I think I took a pic.  I'll see if I can find it.

I tend to be middle of the road. I don't usually use it in normal conversation but sometimes just to spice things up.  When I'm playing sports or FPS games then that's a whole different ballgame.  In sports I'm swearing at myself and in FPS games I'm swearing at people that kill me.

Well I got good news back from my girlfriend tonight!  Sony just sent back a fixed PSP.  It only took about a week and a half.  I chafe at those buggers for ripping me off everytime I buy a Sony product but I have to give them credit for fixing free of charge the PSP that I bricked by trying to install illegal software!  I'm not going to push my luck anymore-no more firmware rollbacks for me! Give me 3.01 any day baby!  icon_biggrin

Wow can you imagine being able to play FFVII and Chrono Cross on the PSP?? That would be unbelievable.  The PSP would go from having almost no good RPG's to having a ridiculous amount of beautiful looking (for the PSP or DS anyways) RPGs just like that!

Well I'd certainly HOPE so!  It would be a shame to take a step backwards.  Your summary makes me want to read an animated cartoon involving the three consoles.  It would be fun to watch the PS3 plotting and scheming against his hated enemy the Xbox 360 in the land of Microsofistan.

The Xbox is already a very respectable system for RPG's. There are actually some gamers out there who don't care about JRPG's.

A respectable system for RPG's that you can already play on the PC with better controls and graphics.  Other than that it doesn't have much.  I didn't really recognize any of those games listed in the first post but it certainly looks like a long list!

You know, in the end, it is a BLOG.  He isn't writing for a gaming site, or any particular audience for that matter, he writes because he enjoys sharing his thoughts and opinions.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  I personally look forward to reading new entries at his site, including his stories about Eli.

The way I look at it, as a blogger he's free to write about whatever he wants to.  And as a reader, I'm free to complain about whatever I want to. smile

I remember a few months ago reading horror stories about how Sony was going to make it so that only the original purchaser of a game would be able to play it on their own PS3.  So now that the PS3 is out, for those that bought it, is there any indication that you won't be able to resell your game once you tire of it?  Or were those reports all fearmongering?

I really enjoy reading Bill's blog.  I check it every day basically.  But I disagree with a lot that he says.  First of all-I'm tired of the Sony bashing.  Who knows, maybe he will be right.  Who cares though?  You don't need to repeat it every single fucking post.  Secondly he's always going back to something he predicted previously to show how always right he is but he also sweeps things under the rug as Kobra said.  Paraworld was supposed to be the second coming of RTS Christ.  Thirdly, I'm tired of reading about his goddamn kid.  I suppose many of you have children as well and enjoy the anecdotes but all I care about are the games. And speaking of which, I'm tired of basically everything in there that isn't game related.  All those links, and stories from readers etc etc etc. I don't give a shit about readers stories.  Anyways it's his blog so he can write whatever he wants I guess.  It's just a shame that it wasn't more game related because he very often has a lot of interesting points to get across.

This is part of the reason why backward compatability is a non-issue for me in the HDTV generation. Put any xbox/PS2/gamecube game on a decent sized HDTV and you get to see all those glaring graphic defects and jaggies. Playing FF12 on my friend's 42" LCD is just painful.

It must be a shame to be a graphics whore Tongue  Missing out on all those great games that have basically everything else.  Of course I don't have a 42" LCD tv so I guess I don't really have anything to compare it to.  I bet I'd rather play FFXII than that mediocre Xbox 360 RPG that I don't even remember the name of anymore.  Or the PS3's first mediocre RPG for that matter.
