Re: The PSP collecting thread

Good start today, these 4 for a total of £10.50. It's also really hard to find good condition 2000 model PSP's now. I got one local off gumtree for now but will keep looking for a nice, scratch free, boxed one. I never tried to find one, as I've got one already even though it's cracked at the edges...

Re: Disney Closes Game Publisher LucasArts

I was initially saddened by the news, but as others have pointed out it may not be such a bad thing tbh Have to agree. The name is what is nostalgic for me, of course after growing up with Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, The Dig, Dark Forces and Jedi Knight. Recently it didn't do anything other than ...

Re: My Day At The Arcades.

The first picture you posted didnt show up on my laptop but I would kill for an Outrun cab. The original Outrun that is. What is the rarest cab in the world? The first picture was the original Afterburner cab. Don't actually know the rarest one, I'd say Polybius. Does it actually exist? I want to b...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

I sometimes feel that the Vita is the biggest secret in gaming, a lot of people that haven't got the console are put off by the price and the multi-format/port titles released on the system. But generally I've found that people who have picked up the console are very happy plugging away on the game...

Re: The PSP collecting thread

What are your thoughts on Gods Eater Burst? I did try it and to be honest it's quite interesting, the camera though is controlled by the D-Pad and can aim with it too. Probably tge game is better on Vita because of the mapping.

Fair enough, I do admit that the running+jumping can be unresponsive though, especially at the beginning.

I wouldn't say it's a rubbish game, but Flashback (not the same team, but close enough) is the superior game.

Re: My Day At The Arcades.

I know you're gonna hate me for this, but I'd love to own a MAME cabinet, if not that then a Metal Slug cabinet will be fine.
Chceking on those Photos, it's amazing to the the Outrun cabinet, as I've only seen it in Shenmue II, I wish there was an Arcade around my area.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Playing Peace Walker on PSP, finishing off the Extra Ops after the main storyline. Took me almost 2 years to finish the main bit! I'm loving the game though, and really pushes the PSP to its limit.

Re: The next XBox - Always online, no second-hand games...

Sure hope they do change it in time, as a lot of people said (and pointed out here too), not many people have a good connection, therefore the console is rendered nothing more than a doorstop. I really wish these are just rumors or just testing ground for the masses (reaction testing, in better term...
