    Hey all,

    ive pretty much given up on getting a console as im not home much anymore, but i still may get a wii later, but not much consideration as of yet.

    anyway since im always out working or at college, ive decided im going all handheld, and so far im getting the ds lite to replace my old grey ds, and i already have a pocket pc for emulation and movies, so i was thinking of complimenting the other 2 handhelds with a psp.



    how i dont intend on using the psp for emulation due to the fact my pocket pc plays everything in the past i actually like to play. So i was wondering what good adventure games, action games, rpg's and maby some childish mario kart like racing games for the psp you guys could reccomend.

    i heard sonic rivals is a good game, and im defenitely getting tales of eternia 2, and the jap version of tales of phantasia, but im curious of some good titles. also im pretty much done with flash cards and such, so since im buying all of my games perhaps some really good reccomendations of good long lasting replayable games [​IMG].


    ty guys, psp hasnt really been my scene, but madden 2007 with wifi for the psp will be a great second option that will compliment games such as mario kart with wifi for the ds.



    1 last thing. IN the event i ever did want to emulate anything on the psp, have they found a way to downgrade firmware with one psp, or should i just say screw it and stick with my pocket pc lol.

    ty for the help



    edit: also if i get the standard core package for $200 will it come with any amount of memory for me to save games?? or am i danged to have to buy a memory stick which i dont mind anyway, just curious.

    Some PSP titles I like are:
    Lumines
    Lumines II
    X-Men Legends II
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance (has great replayability)
    Gradius Collection


    PSP graphics are very nice compared with the NDS, but it's generally easier to find NDS games that are fun to play than PSP games.

    Besides that nifty looking game where you control a blob around different levels by tilting the game world using the shoulder buttons, I honestly can't reccomend any other titles.

    sonic rivals suck, wats with the racing in every stage.
    Metal Gear portable ops look promising
    the gta titles are good games to fall back on
    outrun and syphon filter are also nice.

    Im hooked on Marvel Alliance at the moment, great fun...Ditto for X-Men Legends 2. I just picked up Dungeon Seige it looks great so far but I havent gotten far into it. Lumines and Lumines 2 are both great. Things were slow for a while but there are plenty of good games on the psp now.

    i think i saw a star wars battlefront 2 for psp as well with wifi, do any of the shooters have wifi? and if so are they any good?

    not a big fan of shooters, but i love adventure, action and rpg

    how are the megaman games for the psp they looked 3dish, but kind of cool.

    the daxter game looks sweet as well, and marvel ultimate alliance has too look pretty good on the psp.

    any good long square like rpg's for the psp, or anything worth playing??

    legend of heroes looks like a cool game, and ill have to check the screens for dungeion siege


    also if i get the standard core pack will i get any save memory or will i have to buy another memory stick?

    ty guys

    Every Extend Extra
    that Katamari Damacy game for the PSP
    Loco Roco
    WTF

    and only up to firmware 2.71 can be downgraded right now, from last time I checked... well, it would actually be better to get a modified v2.71FW. BTW I think you should use your PSP for emulation soley for Noiz2sa and Squarez, which are friggin awesome! Beatmania and Stepmania was good on there when I tried it but its been almost a year since I last owned a PSP.

    Very nice list VVoltz!! [​IMG]
    I'm gonna bookmark this just in case I do get a PSP anytime soon.

    Though I think the DS has a better game library, though the PSP does come close. Not to mention I hate sports games. >_>

    Edit: I love the revision! [​IMG]

    Thank you, thats what i was looking for [​IMG]

    and DANG power stone was my favorite dreamcast game, i hope thats the same powerstone mentioned. defenitely going to look into alot of them.

    ty all for the great suggestions, i just feel like more of a hanheld gamer nowadays, and i wanna be stacked with em lol. everyone keeps saying to just stay with one portable, but they both have too many cool games, and in order to play them all it requires both [​IMG]

    Powerstone isnt just the original one from the dreamcast, its Powerstone Collection with Powerstone 1&2 plus a ton of extras, its supports game sharing so you can do up to 4 players with one umd, there are also new weapons and items, better camera control and tons of unlockables. Oh and my favorite feature is that the powerstone 2 characters are now playable in Powerstone 1 and vise versa. It plays very well too, crisp graphics and very fast. Now if treasure would just make a PSP game....(Ikaruga portable?)

    yes ty, i noticed that, but i was looking for an organized list such as the one that vvoltz gave in which case i am very thankful for. alot of cool games i never noticed ive only seen advertisements for psp with shooters and racing games, so i never noticed anything i really liked, but it seems they got some great adventure and rpg games, they should start advertiseing them and perhaps make some more of em lol

    Well, haven't had my PSP for very long (just two months) and VVoltz has pretty much listed the titles I enjoyed but here you go [​IMG]

    Action Puzzle

    Every Extend Extra
    Great visuals, boss fights and chain explosions.
    [​IMG]

    Exit
    Help the trapped people out of the buildings! Stylish colour schemes and cheezy but fun voice effects.
    [​IMG]

    Me and My Katamari
    Wacky, relaxing game with colourful visuals where you roll up everything.
    [​IMG]

    Beat-em-up

    Tekken: Dark Resurrection
    It's Tekken 5 with extra characters and modes including downloadable Ghost player data so that you're always fighting against different fighting patterns.
    [​IMG]

    Racing

    Ridge Racer 1 and 2
    Good visuals and nitro burning fun.
    [​IMG]

    Rhythm

    DJMax Portable International Version
    Ouendan for the PSP. Korean Beat Mania style game with Anime style music videos playing in the background while you hit the buttons. VERY challenging rhythm game with tonnes of unlockables. Doubt anyone's playing on 8 button mode. A DJMax Portable 2 is coming out this winter [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Action

    Gundam Battle Royale (JP)
    Fast paced sci-fi action with the popular Japanese Gundam series.
    [​IMG]

    Monster Hunter Freedom
    Challenging fights, beautiful visuals but the gameplay takes a while to get used to. Take on quests to battle huge prehistoric looking monsters. Second game comes out in Japan in February.
    [​IMG]

    Loco Roco
    Guide a singing blob through levels by tilting the PSP with the L and R buttons.
    [​IMG]

    RPG

    Jeanne D'arc (JP)
    Turn based SRPG based on the Jeanne D'arc story but with a twist.
    [​IMG]

    And two other interesting titles coming soon.

    Disgaea Portable (JP)
    Portable version of popular PS2 game with extras such as a records room and new boss.
    [​IMG]

    Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (JP)
    Upcoming new "Tales of..." game where various characters from other titles in the series meet up.
