My dad had a psp in his desk for 3 years and didn't tell me until now.

I'm not shitting you.

I've liberated it from him and installed new firmware but I only have a 1 gig MS in there so what I can do with it is fairly limted.

Any of you care to introduce me to the world of PSP? Currently I am playing Metal Gear 2: Soild Snake on MSX emulator but every iso I want to play is larger than the capacity of my memory.

I want to play Crisis Core pretty badly but other than that I know nothing about PSP gaming!

I could do with a good deal on an 8 gig card really...

please, your recommendations!

here's my first recommendation: don't play Crisis Core. seriously, it's so terrible.

secondly what kind of games are you looking for? you can get really cheap memory sticks from ebay, i got a couple 4 gigs for a few dollars

yeah ive never played them but the monster hunter games are supposedly good.

if you want RPGs, valkyrie profile: lenneth, and the two starocean remakes are good. you probably need a larger memory stick though

I really wanna play PSX games like Klonoa and Gran Turismo. I used to play them so much back in the day before the laser unit catastrophe that actually made me good at school.

Wanna play Portable ops but not that crappy card game based MG. That looks lame ass.

Would be nice to play FF9 considering I never played it. Never completed 8. Not played an FF since FF8 would you believe...

Also yeah you're right. For once ebay is actually cheaper for electronics :D I'll pick myself up an 8gig.

monster hunter was completely out of favor when the first one was the only one available. i remember gamespot did an unnecessarily lackluster review of it saying it was a game about cavemen or some shit, but to this day, I don't think any game I've played tops the experience I've had playing MH. maybe I'm just attracted to underdog games, as I'm also a fan of Ephemeral Fantasia and Shadow Madness (which was given to me for free because my friend hated it). I even liked Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.
but Monster Hunter was a unique experience, that can't be denied. it tried to put realistic motives into a fantasy world, and instead of magic and shit, you were just a hunter whose job was to hunt monsters in order to be able to survive, simple as that. it was cut and clean, and on top of that charming aspect (imo) it had a diverse variety of weapons and armor that you can custom build by carving the hides of fallen monsters. it was just really nifty and it's my favorite game to this day. also the online play was tons of fun, which is absent from Freedom. it's a shame, really, but what's worse is that japan already has monster hunter 3 on top of all the spin-offs and we have MH1 and two Freedoms. I just want MH2, man, what the hell capcom!?!?!

but yeah, get that.

when ryan says the star ocean remakes are good he means rpg good, keep in mind.  if you liked the originals play them but if you dont like jrpgs you will not find them very good.  also uh, play... fuck what's a game that's under a gig?  i like crush because it's cool as fuck and like 300mb, and also i guess fft is like 250mb as well.  what else.  idk go to psp iso and PERUSE; theyve got like everything over there.

monster hunter isnt really fun if you're not playing it online with other people, imo.  apparently it's badass when you are, tho

I just ordered an 8 gig MS Duo off ebay for £14 so I will be reet.

It's weird how sometimes you're broke and have no money then all of the sudden RANDOM SHIT happens like this.

Do yourself a favour, go ask your parents if they have any current gen handhelds stashed in a dresser somewhere you never know.

it has it's offline moments. online is better, but neither mode pales in my eyes.

but ed, when in doubt, do what i do: google that shit. take all the games mentioned here and watch some gameplay vidjas on youtube. don't go with trailers, they lie to you.

Isn't Monster Hunter that game that is an MMORPG but without all that MMO nonsense?
Like, it captures the grinding and farming of a true MMO experience but you don't need to deal with all that social crap? I'm pretty sure this is how most people describe it but if I'm wrong I need to get it for my PSP. Maybe we can all play Monster Hunter together...
don't mind me, just postin' after a few brewskies

Monster Hunter for PSP is not online multiplayer, I'm afraid. The first one was a haven for aspiring young geeks who traveled in threes bothering a level 20 "Monster Hunter" to be "super duper member number 4" and help them tackle a duo of wyverns because they couldn't level up if they didn't. Monster Hunter for PSP puts you out with a doubled arsenal of weapons, armor and monsters...but no friends to bail you out when some mad buffalo beast with a barbed cock is carving your buttocks like turkey.

it brings a tear to my eye remembering how I used to be hot shit with my level 18, sitting in the lobby drinking beer in excess in order to initiate the "drunk walk" animation, then hobbling around the room with level 4 "Bone Dusters" trailing behind me going "plz mr can u help me wit kut-ku i cant beet him wit my weak wepns!!!" I was a nice friend on there...I let them have the killing shot so they could phone their mothers about it.

these days I can't even play MH1 online because the server was too old and got taken down. and I'm not sure if Freedom allows any kind of link to other PSPs...I don't know if that's even possible, I don't own a PSP. and besides, the chances that there's someone nearby with both a PSP and MH is like...well, it's more likely that you'll shoot lightning out of your dick.

I'm watching a vid for Vagrant Story on youtube, and I like it already because of the guy playing it. I'm like 10 seconds into it, I don't even know what the game is about, and the guy already praised the shit out of it, the people that made it and everyone related to them.

i heard it was great but i never got into it.  wasn't it done by the same guy who did fft and ff12?  those were both far above average for square so he is probably the ONE TALENTED GUY they still have hanging around

holy shit, Vagrant Story has a VATS aiming system.

and the main character's hair is fucking mind boggling.


I wonder if Wild 9 can be put on a PSP...
