@speeny: This is, I feel, a much easier beast to pick up and play since all of it is on the controller. The only thing about this game that is difficult is that it isn't explicit in what buttons you should use, so it is a little bit of trial and error to figure out which ones are suppose to be used. The game is also based around missions to unlock new music, but from my experience on the PSP (not counting Respect as I haven't delved too deeply into it) is that the guidelines for each mission is very confusing. I'm not sure if it is a translation error, but some are outright not clear at all and guides to help you aren't very clear either if I remember correctly. I also know they want you to do some very over and above things to get certain songs. One that I am trying to get in Respect requires you to, as I understand it, play 1000 songs...Yeah...

@sakaixx: I'm a little surprised they haven't done much with Judgment yet. I am hoping they expand and try another anime series like they did with Fist of the North Star. I would really like to see a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure game as I feel that series would do well with a more brawler/beat em' up style.
Really?! It feels like this came really fast. I have yet to play 7 as I need to play Kiwami 2 and continue on until I get to 7, so I can't really say what I prefer.
@speeny: Great minds think alike.
It's my problem with YouTube gamers because I feel their opinions are taken almost like fact, and this is leading to less enjoyment of games entirely. For example, my reason for buying a 360 years ago was because of 06 and I had a blast with it. When social media and YouTube started becoming more prevalent, I noticed it was just the flood of negativity towards it, and some seemingly egging on the commentary (the beastality argument is one that I strongly disagree with). Same with Sonic and the Secret Rings (literally saw a comment on Instagram start to get more attention just because someone started complaining about the game).
And Same with God of War 4 in comparison to the original saga, people feel it became "mature" with the introduction of 4 when the whole saga was already mature, it's just people focus too hard on just Kratos being a raging monster and ignoring the slower moments that build his character and motivation. And on the flip side, I've had those moments where the games that praise, I don't care for. NieR Automata is a recent example in my memory. For all of the praise it got, it really isn't any different from some of the games you would find the Game Critics on YouTube lambasting for being "another generic open-world game." But I guess because it hits you over the head with depression and trying to find meaning in a meaningless world and wraps it up as "philosphy," then I guess it gets a pass.
Watch_Dogs was a perfect example of how personal opinion really shaped the experience. I admittedly fell into the hype because I friend was telling me about it, only to be disappointed and trading it in out of sheer disappointment. When I came back to it near Christmas with only my personal opinion and nothing else influencing my experience, I found myself enjoying it to the point that it is one of my favorite games I go back to from time to time.
@speeny: You're welcome! I will keep an eye out on Popolocrois. I'm serious, I thought the series was just one of those very niche JRPGs that was on the 3DS. I don't remember seeing the PSP version, but the cover art is vaguely familiar.
Another recommendation I do have, and this is if you are interested in Rhythm games, is DJMAX, specifically Respect as it is on the PS4 and brings all of the games that came out for the series together. Basically think Dance Dance Revolution, but on a controller. From what I understand, it has been around because it was a game made in Korea and had only released there for awhile. The one we got somewhere back before 2010 was Portable 2, which we call Fever in the States. I bought this on the PSP and fell in love with the series.
The only two we got after that was Portable 3 and Technika (PS Vita). I know there's a mobile game, but I recommend these games because they are the more definitive experience. It's not as hard to find and isn't as expensive, but the one I would recommend (the PSP version) is obsolete because of Respect coming out. It's a shame because I believe they said they were not making any more games after Respect. The series really has some good music.

I don't have Online yet because I haven't had a need for it and am more on my PS4 than any other console. With Scott Pilgrim releasing on the Switch, I will be getting it soon.

My times are spotty because I am doing coursework and I make that a priority above all else. Outside of that, I'm usually online at 12am to 6:00am or a little beyond, or different times throughout the day like 11am to 2pm or 4pm to 8pm.
@speeny: It's fine, everybody has their tastes.
To the level...*Gasp* "Rolling around at the speed of sound..." City Escape! It's me and my Mom's favorite level! Unleashed I love but I have yet to beat it and this is me going back to it throughout the decade. To the unpopular opinion, I really don't care about the external opinion of games (no disrespect though). I come from a time when Social Media and Gaming Sites weren't as prevalent, so it was only my opinion, and I still have the mentality with a lot of games (I like a lot of games that people have panned). So for me, I still love and will love Unleashed (and pretty much most Sonic games for that matter). I don't care for the Wii version though, such a bait and switch....
06 is actually one that I like. I know the opinion that swirls around it, but again, I played it for myself and enjoyed it (and I have my own unpopular opinion about it). It was definitely a different beast with the way it presented itself. I know some have a problem with it, so it may be a endurance test for some.
@speeny: *Looks up price online* Oh....Y-yeah, I was afraid of this...
Best thing to do is to watch some of it to see if it would be something you would be particularly interested in before making any form of investment. If you do, my best suggestion would be to buy it Used because of the price. That price is overly ridiculous, and I am not sure how well Amazon and the like are when it comes to Used games, but definitely buy it Used. There is a place near me called Book-Off, a Japanese bookstore that has games from different generations of consoles. I believe I saw one some years back, plus a few other games I know of that are hard to find, that would possibly be another good place to look at as well. I had found a Used Dragon Ball Budokai Tenkaichi 2 in perfect condition with everything included.
There are two:
Dr. Finitevus from the Archie Sonic Comics: A villain who is disturbed, but not too disturbed to where he is just outright insane. He is intelligent and seems to be a threat that could be much worse, but keeps his intentions to himself, which makes him intriguing. During the "Knuckles: The Return" Arc in Sonic Universe, he brings up the possibility to Knuckles that the Echidna's history has a more darker side to it. Knuckles does defeat him, but he doesn't challenge the possibility of them having a darker history to them. He commands a dark version of Chaos Energy and even has a his own version of the chant that Knuckles and Tikal uses when they are calling upon the power of the Master Emerald.
Superman (Injustice Universe): What I like about this villain is that he isn't necessarily a villain, just a hero with a perspective that could be considered extreme depending on who's asking. He is a grieving man who has gotten tired of giving a pass to villainy and recognizes that the only way to deal with it is to permanently stamp it out. And that's what I like about his character: he's never considered a villain, just a different perspective that challenges Batman's pacifism. When he starts to act upon his ideals, even Batman was close to considering that he may be right.
