    Just wondering what everyone else was playing right at this moment.
    Dissidia got wayy too boring and repetitive so I stopped playing that 2 or 3 weeks ago
    Currently playing Soul Calibur and Orochi but with all these new games around, not being able to play them is quite stressful.

    I also happen to own a DS but never really had the endurance to finish ANY DS games. heh.

    Any good suggestions for a game that is engaging (like dissidia was for the first 3 days) and fun to invest time into?

    I really need to get my mind off these new games xD

    I own a PSP 3K GEN A 5.03 so don't suggest undead knights (really wanted to play that too xD)

    Did you know that you CAN play those newer games? Like Persona PSP, Gran Turismo, Disgaea 2, and practically every new game that needs 5.55 or even 6.00 FW? Here is a tutorial by me. Revised version.

    1. Download Yoshihiro's Decrypter (http://www.pspgen.com/game-decripter-by-yoshihiro-pack-rtu-telechargement-190007.html, you need to be registered to download).
    2. Unrar it.
    3. Copy the files in the PSP/GAME/ folder.
    4. Pick a ISO file.
    5. Download UMDGEN (http://www.pspgen.com/divers/telecharger-145702.html).
    6. Open your ISO with UMDGEN and browse to PSP_GAME/SYSDIR.
    7. Right click EBOOT.BIN.
    8. Extract it somewhere.
    9. Copy it to the root of your memory stick.
    10. Unplug the PSP and load Yoshihiro's Decrypter.
    11. Press X and wait a few seconds.
    12. When the PSP has restarted, re-plug the USB cable and connect it to your PC.
    13. In your memory stick root, there should be a new folder called "DECRYPTOR", and inside of it there should be a file called EBOOT.BIN. Take it and copy it somewhere safe. Do not mix it with the EBOOT.BIN you previously extracted from the ISO.
    14. Open UMDGEN again, load again your ISO, go to File->Filelist->Export, type "Filelist", and save it somewhere.
    15. Go to PSP_GAME/SYSDIR, right-click EBOOT.BIN and select delete.
    16. Right-click somewhere in the SYSDIR folder and choose Add -> Existing File(s)..., and browse to the EBOOT.BIN you found in the DECRYPTOR folder.
    17. Now go again to File->Filelist, and this time select Import. Choose the Filelist you previously exported, and click "Yes".
    18. Click the "Save" button in the toolbar, select "Uncompressed (*.iso)", name it and wait a few minutes.
    19. Copy the newly-created .iso file into the ISO folder of your PSP.
    20. Unplug and start it. It should work. If it doesn't, try updating your custom firmware (many games work only with 5.50 GEN-B2) and/or changing drivers (this can be done by pressing select and by scrolling to the "UMD ISO MODE" voice. If the menu doesn't show up, power off your PSP, keep the R trigger pressed and power it on again. A recovery menu should appear. Go to Configuration, and look for the voice "Use VshMenu". Change its parameter to "VSHMENU", then go back and reboot the PSP. Now the menu should appear. Try changing the drivers, it may work. If it doesn't, just pray that someone smarter than us comes up with a solution).

    Thanks AnalogMan for steps 14-17.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I am stoopid and it appears I can't read properly. Forget it.

    Most 5.55/6.00 encrypted games don't work @ PSP 3000 (5.03), Absynthe. Your three examples only work @ 5.50GEN-B.

    I haven't used my PSP since beginning of September. There was nothing worth playing.

    Yep, it appears I can't read. Sorry for that, my bad.

    and anyway, I'm playin Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, KH random days, Picross 3D and Mario & Luigi: BIS. They are very good and addicting.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy
    Prinny Can I Really be the Hero?
    Ys 7
    Fate/Unlimited Codes

    That's pretty much what I can get to fit in 4Gb memory card.

    Come on, Jak and Daxter! I've been waiting way too long!

    *Go to beat all of the earlier J&D games*

    Me too, loved Daxter for PSP. I expect this one will be as good as Daxter at least [​IMG].

    thank you for your LONG post xD but yeah, been there tried that
    kinda surprised picross came up 2ice now. Must be pretty good huh

    KH 'random days' xD
    I just cant get into it eh. Being @ age 23 some games just dont offer those fun and engaging moments like they used to

    RAIKA- I know what you mean by 'not worth' playing. Same here and was gutted pretty much when those latest games weren't available for us 3K users

    Still playing SCP but will try Picross for sure.

    EDIT- Kamiyama;

    Dissidia Final Fantasy- got boring after 3 days. Intense 3 days it had been though. Not willing to play again.
    Prinny Can I Really be the Hero?- nothing pissed me off more than ghosts and goblins until i tried this game xD but tried already
    Ys 7- cant run, nor was i ever a fan of the series.
    Fate/Unlimited Codes- got SCP for a good vs game. The controls for this game seems awkward too.

    I too also have a 4gb card [​IMG]

    Currently I don't have many games to play. I'm playing:
    KH 358/2 Days
    Mario & Luigi BIS
    ...
    ....
    .....
    ......
    .......
    ........
    that's it...
    And occasionally HG/SS, I'm waiting for a finalized patch before playing it 24/7/12/365

    BIS works? Last time I checked it never worked on an R4 or a DSTT so I gave up xD
    So many people are playing KH random days..wow.

    Pokemon I believe is only fun when there are other people to play it with. And no one I know plays it xD
    Tried Platinum some time ago and stopped playing for good after getting the bike. xD

    Gosh though, there really aint anything to play on the PSP. The most fun I ever had with it was when I played Tekken DR with my brother (played almost 1000 vs matches).

    Monster Hunter which a lot of people like, didnt seem that great to me to be honest and I never got past the Wyvern who was made of piles of rocks xD never picked it up again after deleting the savefile

    Dissidia was indeed a very good game but I am over it now. I'd shoot myself b4 picking it up to play again.

    More KH xD
    good for you. At least you find it fun.

    BIS- I don't really want to get my hands on it anymore. I wasnt even waiting for it anyhoo.
    Dissidia- do you not find it repetitive after beating Chaos? I sure did.
    Disgaea 2- you lucky penguin.

    I play dissidia once in a while. Yes I'm a lucky penguin with a psp 1000. [​IMG] ATM only KH interests me since I'm too lazy to get BIS or Scribblenauts. I am currently waiting for Nostalgia to come out.

    I tried Jeanne 'D Arc and got bored of it after a while. And does anyone thing that SoulCalibur is a bit overrated? I watched some videos and found that Tekken was better.

    they are 2 different games and it really depends I think.
    For instance, I had a guest over today who likes playing SC so I played ad hoc with him.
    We played 24 matches and they were very intense and fun.

    As for tekken, I play vs my brother on a regular basis so I think that is good too.

    if you feel like guard impacting and slashing play SC
    if you feel like wall comboing kuma, play tekken.
    They are both very engaging games, but not so good when it comes to single player.
