Sorry, multiplayer can only be played against other players online (I can't remember if there was ad-hoc mode as I've never used it). You can always just replay missions though to play against the computer. Both games are well worth a second playt through IMO. I hope that helps.

The 20th?!

That's like a year away.

Canvas_Of_Flesh

How is that a year away? May 20th is less than 3 weeks away.

I'm really looking foward to Haze though. If the demo is really good, I'll pick it up for sure. It will be this or MGS4 though, so the demo would have to be REALLY good.

Place the switch on your "sarcasm meter" in the "on" position.

Place your switch on posting to "contribute something to the topic or don't post anything at all."

If I had to choose: Any combination of The Warriors, Final Fantasy Tactics, Gurumin, and Burnout Legends. The Legend of Heroes is good as well, but you'd probably only like it if you enjoyed old school RPGs.

8gb cards shouldn't corrupt data any more than any other card would (which is next to never) as long as it is an official name brand (non-fake) card. I believe this stuff is being spread by people who have fake cards. The same thing happened with 4gb sticks...everyone said they didn't work, but then again most of these people ended up having fake cards. If it is the same make and a legit card, a 4gb and 8gb card should work the same...they just would be different in size.

i agree portable ops is very hard to find.

atleast in my city which is in california.

i only see it on amazon but im a bit skeptical about buying it on there as i have never bought anything off amazon.

evrynitewithyou


Hmm....I didn't think Portable Ops was hard to find. I see it all of the time at local Gamestops. I haven't checked for it new though.

Dragoon awesome? If by awesome you mean generic with a boring/repetitive fighting system. I played through it recently. It wasn't terrible... just nothing special. I'm sure the cutscenes kicked butt when it was originally released though. All i know is that all the grandias, lunars, final fantasies, xenogears's, star oceans, etc. were a lot more fun when i played them. The story got decent at the end when they had to finish up everyone's back stories, and I thought it was funny when they pulled a beerfest with the green character. But seriously, the fighting system was pretty annoying. Who the hell likes timing buttons for EVERY DAMN ATTACK. not me.iwannagoflorida

We're talking about a game compared to Astonishia story here...not put up against every other RPG in the world. Why did come here to put someone else's oppinion down while still contributing nothing to the inital topic at hand (Astonishia Story)? Sure all of those games are great (xenogears bored me to tears though), but each person likes different games. You'll give FFVIII a 9.8 but you put down Dragoon for adding a timing system to a very similar battle system? Guess what, you don't have to do the whole timing thing if you don't like ;) It added another element to the battle system over FF7 where you could add extra damage and combos if you pleased. Doing those would reward you with more combos. I see nothing generic and boring about it. Of course you're going to see the game differently when you play it right now as opposed to when it came out.

Most people who played FFVII when it came out still praise it as being the best game today. People who play it for the first time years later aren't as impressed with it. The same goes for any other game. If you would have played Dragoon first, it would have been new and fresh to you, with all of the other games being being generic....get my drift? I didn't like Xenogears, but that was after playing a bunch of other RPGs from that time and it just seemed like the same thing. I took a break from RPGs for a while and came back and everything seemed fresh again.

Astonisia Story on the other hand just does not appeal to me, and it isn't because it is a JRPG. I loved the Legend of Heroes series and those are all JRPGs with fairly low ratings on the Western side. The game is just too basic and the lack of a good battle system really hurts the game. The story may be semi-decent, but I'll never know. Playing only 30min for the topic starter may make it hard to judge whether or not the game is really good (though the same goes for me). All I know is that I didn't like the beginning of the game, and following with what others say about it, I felt it wasn't worth my time. I just feel there are plenty of other RPGs that are superior on the PSP (FF: Crisis Core, Gurumin, Legend of Heroes, Valkyrie Profile, Brave Story, Tales of the World, Final Fantasy 1,2, Tactics, Jeanne D'Arc, Kingdom of Paradise, Disgaea, and others). The PSP is actually starting to grow an impressive RPG collection. Even Star Ocean 1 and 2 are coming over from Japan.

You're running official firmware right? Have you had your wireless card replaced? Doing a quick google search with this error number leads me to believe that one of these may be leading to your problem. If you do google search though, there are tons of threads asking the same thing...whether any of them will help, I don't know.

[QUOTE="thanatose"]

[QUOTE="Jinroh_basic"]the hottest deal right now is 8800GT 512mb. i'm planning to get one very soon too. :)Orrendamente

Yeah, if you can swing the $250 price tag the 8800GT 512mb is a great choice of card.

In the US they're only around around 200 dollars. I got a superclocked off of Amazon for 215.

You can get one for $154.99 (just over $160 total w/shipping) at newegg (link here).

Depending on your budget though, try one of these cards: 8600GT ($49.99 shipped), 8800GS ($99.99 + shipping),9600GT ($139.99), 8800GTS 320 ($99.99).

I have the 8800GTS 320mb card and it runs COD4 without any problems. I had the 8600GT before it though, and it ran the game with almost no problems as well. There are so many cards out there though, and the one best for you just depends on how much you have in your wallet.

You'll only be able to watch it on your PSP by putting it on your memory stick. You'll have to buy it on DVD, convert it to mp4 so the PSP can read it, and then have a big enough memory stick for the file to fit on. It won't look as good as a movie on the UMD format, but it still looks pretty good.
