Well for starters your ninja dont move like a slug

Sound can be used as a tool

remember one time hearing two guards on the other side of a wall, both standing near a door,
I jumpped over the wall, wall ran(this is very easy to do), killed one, then the other before landing

100% agree with that. I was hoping for a tenchu beater....i didn't get it.
I might give the Vita go a punt in that case

Ive bought most of my film collection cheapish but I need to prioritise the games , so its bootsale time this weekend I think. Apart from my sealed Harry Potter collection which I may keep though ive no idea why.

I seem to have about 30 films , though dont remember buying that many.

I always like Mercury - some good ideas in that game. Is Manhunt any good?

Probably as bad as the proper version.

I don't currently own a PSP but I have been picking up the odd game when I see something that grabs my interest.

I currently have:
Tony Hawk Underground 2 Remix
Tekken Dark Resurrection
Outrun 2006
Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles

Just looking to pick up a PSP for a good price now but with there being so many different models i'm getting confused :lol:

Well they were released in this order

1000
2000
3000
PSPGO!
E1000

The black sheeps are the PSPGO! (no UMD drive, download only) and the E1000 (final cost reduced model, mono sound without headphones, other features cut out).

The original 1000 series is more sturdily built but has a shonky d-pad for 2D fighters. These are the oldest models so are probably the most likely to be damaged/knackered in some way.

the 'slim' 2000 series models are often cited as the best due to a much better screen, more lightweight design etc.

The 3000 looks the same as the 2000 but has a few additions such as a built in mic and something to do with the wifi (which I never use). I have this model and really like it but the 2000's screen is apparently slightly better from what I have read.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
