I frequent the Dead Rising 2 (PS3) forum. But it seems that when someone creates a new reply, which is shown on the main forum list, such as showing "2 (1)" to indicate that there's a new reply, that new reply is not showing up when I click to read that thread.

For example, just a short while ago, I created a new thread with FAQ's about the game. I can see under the "Last Post" heading that "Daitaro93" has posted into the thread. However, when I click the link and enter the thread, it still only shows just my post and no other replies.

While I've yet to play it, I'm going to agree with Uncharted 2, as well.

Metal Gear 4 is a gorgeous and fun game...when you're allowed to play it. The ratio of gameplay to cutscene is ridiculous. I'd be sitting there, bored out of my mind watching the movies and thinking "Wow, this would be fun to PLAY".

Other games I think could be on the list:

-Ratchet & Clank - Gorgeous, cartoony graphics and a hell of a lot of fun. It's like playing a Pixar game.

-Heavy Rain - Nuff said

-Little Big Planet

-God of War III

Honestly, the more I think about it, LBP might be the best answer for me. It's a lot of fun for the whole family and the level design follows Sony's "It does only everything" tagline.

Just an addendum to my own post:

I noticed a major difference between the regular PSP and the Go (something I believe others have complained about). It does make me consider one thing:

Does the regular PSP also have downloadable capability? For example, if I bought a regular PSP, could I buy and play a game off the PSN?

Since getting a PS3 late last year, I've also been thinking of getting a PSP to go along with it. There's a number of games that I want to play, many of which have the name "Final Fantasy" in its title. *grin!*

Anyway, I realize that the PSP Go came out, I think, sometime last year? And that all your games are purely downloadable, as oppososed to playing them on a disc. Given that I'm starting to see entertainment - music, movies, games - moving to a disc-less digital era, I'm thinking of giving the Go...a go. I actually like the idea of not carting around a folder full of discs and such, but instead just loading them up onto the PSP and going.

A friend of mine, however, recommended NOT getting the PSP Go. His opinion was purely based around the fact that it hasn't been selling well, but I don't think that's enough excuse not to buy it.

So, thoughts? Anyone out there have one and love it? Others tried it and hate it?

Conceptually, I think it's an interesting idea. Upon execution, not so much.

It's basically a glorified chat channel like IRC, but mixed with some elements of Second Life (especially buying new clothes and such). I've played around with it some and found some of it interesting. The bowling, for example, is oddly kind of fun. Most of the mini-games are kind of fun, honestly. I think there should be more rewards for playing said games, though.

I look at City of Heroes as a good example. A main part of that game is in the limitless costumes. Almost every major mission and especially holiday events give you new costume outfits. You're rewarded for the time you spend in the game and how long you've had an account there. And you can get all of these extra bonuses and costumes just for playing the game. Granted, they've started charging for some costume packs, but not too many.

In Home's case, you could get bonuses for having certain games, downloading demos, etc. I think they still do that, as far as the demos go, but I'm not sure. The problem also is people who rent or borrow games who haven't paid for that game. BUT, it would still be a great way to get more Home items. Wasn't there some way to get the Batcave for owning Arkham Asylum or the demo?

I wonder, though. What if interface for everything was through Home, rather than the front screen? To buy a new game, you walk into a gaming store? That sort of thing? It might be needlessly complex and turn off a lot of people, but others (like myself) might find it neat.

Most of my wish list has already been mentioned, but...

1) Final Fantasy collections (Anthology, Chronicles and whatever I & II are called)

2) Chrono Cross

3) Parasite Eve 1 & 2

4) Legend of Dragoon

5) Spider-Man

6) Bushido Blade (was II on PS2? I can't remember)

7) Mega Man Legends

Feel like there's some missing, but I'd say that's a good start.

Since getting my Slim after Christmas, I've been loving an assortment of games from Katamari to Demon's Souls. Not quite A-Z, but you get the idea.

Anyway, while I'm not a big fan of sports or sports games, I do like to play them once in awhile. I've been thinking of picking up some cheap ones. I don't really care about getting the latest 2010 (or I guess soon to be 2011?) versions, since each year is basically just a fresh coat of paint on the established system.

So, just wondering if anyone could recommend some good sports games. I'm already planning on getting the fantastic Fight Night Round 4. A few other sports I'd like to get are:

-Soccer

-Baseball

-Hockey

-Basketball

-Pro-Wrestling (arguably not a sport, but same kind of idea)

I'd say football, but I'm not a fan of the sport.

One thing that I've always been confused about is the difference between the EA games and the 2K games. I think, but completely not sure, that the 2K games are a little less serious in their presentation. Not quite cartoony, but a little more arcade-like.

Anyway, if anyone could help, that'd be great! I'm sure I can get a number of these for $10.

[QUOTE="RedWave247"]

That's the beauty of Final Fantasy, though. Each one is its own self-contained universe. I much prefer that over trying to continue the story when the previous game wrapped things up rather well. See also, Bioshock 2.

Desma

So, it wouldn't bother you if 2 years from now they had "Final Fantasy XXXXI"?

The story doesn't necessarily have to be continuous, maybe have some relevance to the past game. For example, the story would be in the same world or with some returning characters.

I likely wouldn't buy it. The last couple of Final Fantasy games have been more about flash than substance with the same boring template characters every time. I miss when the series didn't take itself so seriously and had a lot of kooky, cartooney comedy in it. And to be honest, I PREFER the self-contained storytelling. I like that IV is different from V, V different from VI, etc. In most cases, there's some great character development that I don't need to see a continuation of that world. Eventually, it becomes something like a bad comic book, where the characters say, "Well, someone's trying to blow up the world again. Let's travel around the world, summon monsters, etc." And if you want some continuing story or more in the same universe, they're starting to do that, now. VII had Dirge of Cerebus, as well as the Advent Children movie. X had X-2. The current XIII has an upcoming FFvsXIII, which is apparently a darker part of that same world.

The thing with the FF series is that they're essentially the same game. Same kind of story (giant world threat), band of heroes coming together, etc. Mind you, that's pretty much describing almost ANY RPG, but you get my point. Besdies, Final Fantasy sells by name value alone these days.

Speaking of RPG's, here's two more I just thought of. I'll just add the mto my list:

6) Earthbound

7) Chrono Trigger!!
