I don't have any current gen consoles. I only play handheld, and I will absolutely NOT get a 3DS. The GBA-SP and PSP are my main systems I play. I'm not a huge DS fan, and really don't play that much.jefferyjosephh
Are you going to get a PS Vita? I'm impressed with it so much, It may be the first console I buy on day one! Awesome launch line up, WipEout 2048, Final Fantasy X HD remake, LBP and Rayman Origins coming later. Really excited =P I agree with you on the 3DS, the 3D effect is headache inducing, and rendered useless if you use the tilt controls. It's launch lineup was really weak imo, and many of the first party games are rehashed N64 titles. have you seen the bolt on second analog stick they announced at TGS? reminds me of the Mega Drive/Genesis add ons :P I do like the circle pad though, and the new mario kart game looks pretty cool. I'd never consider buying one though.

did you notice how all of a sudden plenty of developers are coming out with HD compilations or rereleases? I wonder why

I've noticed Nintendo doing it more than most, I must say. I wish they'd come up with some new mascots. I think they're worried that people only have faith in their established franchises and wii party games. The NEW super mario bros, Donkey kong country RETURNS, etc. Why don't they just re-release the SNES and be done with it!

MGS collection , splinter cell , Final Fantasy (though they have been remaking their games since the 90s) , Beyond Good and Evil , God of War , Team Ico. those are the ones I can think of. tbh , Id rather they rereleased games we never got in the west like Policenauts, sure the fan translation is nice, but it would be better to have an official remake, tramslated, also Snatcher would be good since the Mega CD version is very expensive (as in Panzer Saga expensive) and the other versions are in Japanese.

KOTOR II

Speaking of, I have to play KOTOR 2 again. I haven't played through since I beat it two years ago. Definitely one of my all time favorites.

I'm definitely getting the Vita. I'm simply so excited for the lineup of games that are confirmed. You got Uncharted, Rayman Origins (which I'm really excited for), Killzone, and you know the RPG's will be coming down the drain. All it needs in my opinion is a Resident Evil game and it's good to go. I really didn't like the DS at all. The Gameboy SP was the last Nintendo handheld I actually liked. And the 3DS has nothing on it that warrants a buy for me. A lot of the games on it are remakes of game I never liked in the first place like Zelda, Mario Kart, etc. Not to mention, I absolutely hate 3D. PSP was really a good pickup for me, Vita looks like a huge improvement in all departments, especially with the dual analogs.

Speaking of Final Fantasy and Remakes... cough, couFF7gh, ahem... They would make an absolute MINT if they did that. Panzer Saga needs a release on XBLA (then maybe the value of the Saturn version will go down and I can buy it, Mwahahaha!) They did that with Silvergun. I don't think there'd be a big market for western releases of old Japanese games, (apart from the notorious ones like Radiant Silvergun). Do you think Sega will release a 'Sega Saturn Collection' ala the Genesis collection and Dreamcast collection on current gen consoles? Actually, Sega probably look upon the Saturn as an embarrassment, so such a wondrous thing is also unlikely to happen. :(

not an embarrasment , just not popular enough in the west to warrant a release for any sort of compilation , besides that quite alt of source code was lost meaning the amount of work needed to port those games would be more than most, and Saturn emulation is not really a great option for them. but no , its not an embarrasment by any means (its Saturn , not virtual boy), though Im not sure how much would such a compilation cause any sort of big price drop , collectors will always be collectors.

From what I've seen (not actually placed my hands on one), I can't fault the Vita at all. Gorgeous looking unit, mind blowing graphics, humungous oled screen, dual analogue, physical media with saving on the game cards themselves, reasonable battery for what it is, even a reasonable price, and as you said, NO 3D! I think it's gonna fly off the shelves, and they're going to have a supply/demand problem! The ONLY issue i have with it is its silly name, why couldn't they have called it the Sony BlasterMaster 3DS Exterminator Portable? I'll be ok with 3D when they figure out how to do it effectively without the glasses. The glasses seem to darken everything, and I feel like phool wearing them over the top of real glasses! >:3
#60 Posted by MonkeySpot (6070 posts) -

I like the Vita, there's actual SOFTWARE that's INTERESTING. Something the 3DS is sorely missing. But even with the spiffy new gizmo, I'm really hoping for a Konami Arcade Collection with "Time Pilot" (to get this back on Legacy gaming, LoL)... My PS1 disc is getting old as sin, and I would kill for a re-issue on a portable - I gave my Konami Arcade GBA cart to my nephew years ago figuring I would see one out for the DS Lite at some point, to no avail... I loooooves me some "Time Pilot". Pro'ly wasted a college tuition worth of quarters on it back in the 80s.

#61 Posted by jefferyjosephh (71 posts) -

The Vita is a unit that I am seriously considering. But, I usually jump in a year or so into a system. I love my PSP, and the Vita is able to do that much and so much more. Can't wait to see it in action.

To be honest, though.....my GBA-SP gets as much play time as any system I have. I have a huge library for it, and the games just hold such a soft spot in my heart. It was a time when gaming was at it's best in my memory.....at least for handheld.

2 buttons, small size, folding design, long battery, can play GB/GBcolor/GBA library, simple yet awesome games. I know today's consoles and handhelds can do so much more than the little GBA-SP, but that little unit just does gaming straight and simple. I can't explain it.....I just love it.

Don't get me wrong.....I love the PSP and the flashy graphics and gameplay. But the GBA-SP will always have a special place for me. And this is a 43 year old guy talking.

So, as I posted earlier, getting back into Golden Sun 2, and a little Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories on the GBA right now, and of course, Madden 08 on my PSP. It's fall. Gotta play me some Madden.

Hmm, DK64. That's a game I've been wanting for a while, but every time I see it for sale, I convince myself I don't want it. Is there anything that differentiates it from the host of other N64 3D platformers? It's a massive game, and I'm not sure I would have the will to collect everything, find all the secrets, etc.

[QUOTE="MonkeySpot"] RE0 is the only main series RE game that I have never even had a chance to play... I wish it was released on other systems, or XBLA :(. I haven't played REmake either for the same reasons, but then again, I still need to complete the original... but it's so hard :(. I also need to finish 3: Nemesis, but I got VERY far in the game and well, I couldn't Survive the Horror so to speak... I didn't have any herbs, Nemesis was chasing me, I was in a bell tower (I think) with not much stuff left, and for some reason I couldn't get past the poisonous spiders... and with no herbs, this was doomed for failure. Ah well :(. Going to do that next year or so, definately (too many games coming out this fall to be able to even think about it just yet, starting with Gears 3 next week).

Speaking of the PSVita, I was excited for it. Was. Why not now? because... no discs/UMDs :(. Only digital, and I'm not really a fan of that.

Also: Resident Evil 4 + Code Veronica X, Silent Hill and Prince of Persia. I am a fan of HD remakes for some reason... but maybe because they are some of my favourite games of all time :).

A Resident Evil game has been rumoured for the PSP for years, so there is a bit of a chance, to be honest. I don't own a 3DS and am not really interested in a PS Vita (see above). I hate it when games are released on certain platforms etc. I want to play the 3DS RE games badly :(.
#67 Posted by Darkman2007 (17929 posts) -

HD remakes are fine, but only if done properly.

stuff like Sonic's Ultimate Mega Drive collection on the PS3/360 for instance , is not a great example of an HD compilation.

Ah, NO it's not only digital. It uses physical media, NVG cards, similar to the 3DS, and you can save on the game card itself :D That's why I'm buying one on day one! (If I manage to get the cash together)

i just started resident evil 3 on gamecube 2 days ago...

i tried it on easy and when i saw all the ammo and stuff they gave you i felt insulted....so i chose hard mode...then when i came to nemesis the 3rd time ...i realized...OOOH thats why they give you all that stuff...that guy is hard as hell...
so i quit hard mode went back to easy...i started to miss the challenge...so i thought...screw this im going back to hard but im going to RUN from him everytime....im at racoon park right now with no herbs :/ ..will i survive the horror?

I certainly didn't the first time around :P. I think I played on Easy myself, but found it to be challenging, just like you. I mentioned in a thread yesterday that I got to one point and just couldn't get any further. Not enough ammo/herbs :(. I also didn't actually know that you could kill Nemesis early on??? :P. I always thought the purpose was to run away from him and then maybe fight him at the end or something (I never finished it yet, so I don't know myself).

I would assume that each game will have its own memory card, though obviously some would be downlaod only. as for saves, Im not sure , but it would either be a seperate SD card, or internal flash, or even both

A little off-topic, but I wonder why Nintendo don't use such cards for their home consoles. It's not like the Wii or the Wii-U can run audio CDs, let alone DVDs and Nintendo are known for their fondness of cartridge-style media.

The games come on the NVG cards, and most games will save on that same card. However, some of the larger games will require extra save space, so proprietary memory sticks are available. I presume there will be download only titles as well, like there is currently with the PSP. I also heard a rumor that there will be 'PS2 classics' to download as well :D

its a matter of space, according to Sony, those cards can hold anywhere from 2-16GB , depending on what the developer asks for.

however, the 16GB one is going to be more expensive, quite a bit more than a cheap DVD/ Wii disc, and Im not sure how many devs are even going to use it for the Vita, maybe only later once production costs go down.

furthermore, according to Nintendo , the WiiU will use (once again) a specialised disc format that holds 25GB (maybe 50GB dual layer) , so even the 16GB one won't be enough.

two days I bought the Harry Potter Goblet of Fire videogame for the Gamecube from the pawn shop downtown. Bought the game pretty cheap since the pawn shop was having a Customer Appreciation Day special going on.

I happen to like the game so far in the beginning. I still need to go buy Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets for my Gamecube console and then I need to go buy Half Blood Prince for the PSP.

Is there exploration in the castle in Half Blood Prince?

slamminjammin69
Half Bood Prince for the PSP is a HORRIBLE game. I got it bundled with my blue PSP 3000, and couldn't get rid of it quick enough. It's story bears no resemblance to the book, the graphics are poor, and I mean really poor, as in the castle is just a 2D picture that moves around behind your character. The gameplay is made up of silly side quests, mostly collect and fetch quests and dull as hell gobstones minigames that run in the wrong aspect ratio. Yes there is castle 'exploration', but you wouldn't want to frankly. In short, avoid this game at all costs, its in my top 5 worst games ever. The console versions are a lot better, so I've heard.
#80 Posted by slamminjammin69 (1599 posts) -

That's not what I heard.

Order of the Pheonix for PSP i hear isnt that good since it looks more like a DS game.

I have seen pics of Half Blood Prince the game for PSP at gamefaqs and the game looks alright to me so I might go buy it.

Doesnt look "2Dish" to me

#81 Posted by Nismology (648 posts) -
The pics on gamefaqs are not from the PSP version. Trust me, I've owned it and played it, It really sucks. It's not just the graphics. The gameplay just isn't there! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwSzHW0kdmg Just look at the comments on this video!

That link doesn't work for me. if you want the game, then go ahead and buy it, no one's stopping you. I just advise you to spend your money on one of the PSP games out there that is actually good! Have you played Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII for instance, thats an unforgettable game with an excellent story.

The GBA version is great. I played it about a year ago and it put me on a year long Zelda kick. For what it's worth, I think the GBC Zedla games are a bit better overall but the controls for A Link to the Past are better. All of them are excellent though. If it's Zelda and you can stick in in a GBA, it is an awesome game.

slamminjammin69
You use 'games' as a plural, I never said anything about the other PSP harry potter games. Indeed, goblet of fire on PSP is supposed to be relatively good, although I've never played it. I can only really go by my experience with half blood prince. It's not bad in the sense that it's broken or unplayable, it's just boring as hell, generic and feels for all the world like it's was designed with a quick buck in mind - "lets do a quick and dirty hand held port so we don't miss out on the extra profit $$$" You can just tell there was absolutely no love put into it at all. You'll probably play it now and come back saying 'it was no where near as bad as you said it was'. I've only played though crisis core once, and plan to play it through again on hard sometime soon. It was actually the first FF game i'd played, believe it or not.

Metroid Fusion for the GBA. It's such a great game so far although I'm not that far into it. I'm diggin' the action! :^)

PS3: L.A. Noire, Shock Troopers (Neo Geo Station).

L.A. Noire... I don't know how much I like it yet; it's kind of hit and miss so far. Shock Troopers is... AWESOME; and AWESOME x 1000 when multiplayer.

I'm playing that same game right now and loving it too! I LOVE 2D Metroid! Also playing Madden 08 on my PSP for some distraction.

[QUOTE="Nismology"]Me: Jet Set Radio Future -Just beat the final boss, now I'm going for all secret characters and finding all the graffiti souls Panzer Dragoon -Need to really sit down and devote an afternoon to this, only played it casually thus far Quantum Redshift -Going for master mode with all characters

QR is a great game, good luck on the redshift levels because they use major high level weapons and you can't make any mistakes. I love the graphics btw.

Just started playing the original Halo on Xbox for the first time, had it for a while and not got around to playing it. Wow. I thought I hated first person shooters, but this game is a masterpiece!
