4  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Star Wars PSP-2000 Bundle w/ custom firmware on: March 15, 2010, 10:43:06 PM
Hello,

I'm mostly inactive here, but post fairly frequently on OO. I'm looking to change from a PSP to a DS so the PSP has got to go. The PSP comes with Star Wars Battlefront, 2 4-GB memory cards, a soft case and a hard case, a usb charger/data cable, wall charger, and a second large battery w/ black cover. The PSP has some scratches on it, but nothing that bothers me while playing. I have custom firmware installed.

I'm looking for $130 (or best offer) shipped. PM if interested.

Dracula X Chronicles - PSP - (Been playing this in the background a little but I think I will have to get rid of it as I don't seem to have the patience for it. Too frustrating at times for my tastes.)

Play until you unlock Symphony of the Night! Then play Symphony of the Night!

I finished Batman:AA and am starting Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

UN Squadron is fantastic.

 Bored nostalgic college student with a large federal tax refund + ebay = I spent how much on SNES stuff icon_eek

The sad thing is my brother and I used to pretty much have the exact same collection, but sold it off at EB Games for a penny on the dollar at some stupid, stupid point.

Does anyone know of a retro-gaming sites that have a trading forum? I'd rather not deal with ebay...

Please forgive me for sounding like a mouthpiece, but if you like OOTP 8 then I think you'll love 9.  There's a lot of streamlining and improvement to both the engine and existing features, plus the usual bells & whistles that get added for any new version of a game.

For the sake of thruthiness in advertising, I'm slightly biased. icon_biggrin

What if I hated 2007 but loved 4->6.5? Something about the changed interface just always rubbed me wrong, and it looks like 9 moves slightly back towards the older interface with having the various options all the way at the top, which is one of the things that bugged me. How long is the preorder going to be available?

Since OO is dead...I'll post my impressions here:

I am 20 hours into it, and am waiting to finish the last couple of chapters until I have completed the missions...am at 64% now and lvl 61.

The missions have been a real disappointment, there was a mission there where they changed up the setting, but I don't really recall any others that left the slums, desert, cave, weird building, plains random maps. They had more environments in the game...why not use them more? I'm real anal though, so I'll go to 100% or until I meet a mission I can't beat.

The DMW hasn't bothered me as much at it did at the beginning. The best is Chocobo mode...Once I started using fusion and got 300+% HP and similar upgrades to attack, vitality, AP, magic, and spirit...the gains from a level just aren't as important...I guess I am power gaming...

Its disappointing that the mission system unbalances the story so much. I haven't had a decent story fight since the missions started (for a while I always did a mission as soon as I go it).

- In my opinion, the combat. is. not. good. I went 15 hours using assault twister, cure, and blizzard/blizzaga (only for enemies strong against physical attacks) and evade. Since I got crush (99999 max dmg FTW!) and magic punch, it has been even less pretty.

- None of the fusion tricks or combat decisions I made were based on FAQs or anything, I just started fusing to see what was up, and soon enough all the stat bonuses were what was up!

- The story has been superb as are the graphics.

- Despite all the flaws, the obsessiveness of beating missions keeps me coming back, so despite all the flaws...it still has that fun factor that I can't explain.

Overall I give it a B so far. If I wasn't a FF7 fan I'd probably give it a C...

Finished today with 90% or so of the missions completed at level 75. I was disappointed (but not surprised) that the last few bosses were so easy, I say not suprised because at level 75 I was doing 99999 damage each hit....none of the bosses lasted more than 3 hits.

I'd score the game a C+ and the story a A( I won't go for A+ because some of the stuff was too out there for my simpleton mind to grasp/ remember from FF7).

I think if combat was better and the mission structure improved then it would be a GoTY contender, but due to them I place it in the next tier down.

My Fair Lady wants to go to Baltimore for the fresh seafood. I thought it sounded like a good idea but if people who have been there all say "do anything else" then I might side with the public opinion.

If you want fresh seafood and want to get out of DC go to Annapolis or the Eastern Shore or stay in DC....unless you're an Orioles fan/ baseball stadium fan there's no reason to take a day to go to Baltimore.

As with most Wal-mart deals, it's completly YMMV.

SSX 3 is $19.82 at my Wal-Mart.
Metal Arms is $29.82.
Brute Force, Freedom Fighters, and NFS:HP2 are all $19.82.

In fact, the only $15 console games we have other than GBA at my particular Wal-Mart are:  Sphinx (X-Box), and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (PS2).


Could be the fact that the deal was spotted over a month ago.

And now when I rub my head back and forth on the back of my computer chair it generates a lot of static electricity.

Discuss.

I expect the following issues to be resolved:
-If a rub my head while typing can I somehow generat enough static electricity to fry my keyboard and/or PC? :?:
- Will I wake up with a headache from this surge of activity on the top of my head? :?:
- Will my neck hurt in the morning? :?:
- Should I have gotten my hair cut so short? :?:
- Are sci-fi games now defunct? :twisted:
