Please take my survey
It could turn into something rather cool if they can get this thing off the ground:

PSP Chick
Alrighty..

So Im looking to get a PSP very soon - within the next week or so. I have a PS3 already and am enjoying the hell out of that. Granted, I know there will be differences between the games and their quality given the sheer size differences between the consoles, but Im fine with that. What Im in need of right now are some recommendations for good games on the PSP - Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'll list below some games that Ive really enjoyed. Anything that falls in the same vein will likely peak my interest.

* Fear 2
* Dead Space
* Folklore
* Heavenly Sword

Here are games that Im debating. Any reviews on these would be appreciated too.

* God of War: Chains of Olympus
* Resistance: Retribution

Thanks in advance!

Okay, so I just recently got in touch with what abandonware is. It's soft/hardware that's released to the public domain after it has no copyright protection. What I'm using is a DOSBOX.--It's also free if it's worth its salt.
DOSBOX?
What the hell is that?

It's a DOS emulator that allows you to play...wha? DOS games. That's right! And here are the games I've downloaded so far. It's also free, too. :)
Odell Down Under
It's a game in which you survive in the Great Barrier Reef as a fish. You can play up to three modes:
Practice--which is a "sandbox" mode where you survive and figure out what's good to eat for the fish you've chosen until you get eaten.
Challenge--You play at the bottom of the food chain until you reach the apex predator, which will most likely be a blacktip shark or a great white. Gameplay usually lasts to about 7 fish if you survive give or take.
Tournament--Almost the same as challenge, except all the fish in the game will be available to you play with, and the game doesn't stop until you die.
Create-A-Fish: You create a fish with some points. You can change the color, the name, as well as what time it's active. The stats you'll be using are endurance, speed, and agility. You can also choose to have 1 special ability. Personally, I prefer the ink squirt.
The mouse controls movement; pointing left will make yer fish go left, and so on. If your fish is small enough, you can hide in certain areas by going into the shadows and staying still.
 Wolf
It's a wolf sim, which means you take control of a wolf in a series of scenarios. I think there's about 8, and three lands: timber, tundra and plains (8 for each one, or something).
Each wolf and area has their own advantages and disadvantages. One situation might lead you to be a wolf named Blackmuzzle; you're an alpha female, injured, and you have to see to it that you and cub survive. Maybe you might find that one of your senses had been taken away for a mission. o:
During playing you learn wolfy facts. The game itself doesn't quite have a tutorial, though there is a manual.
Oh! Be aware--if it looks like it has two legs, resembles a plane or a helicopter STAY THE HELL AWAY. Seriously. It will make you catch some death.
Also, you can interact with wolves. Fight for dominance, show affection, seek a mate..all that jazz, too.
Learning curve can be a bit difficult.
The same people made another game called Lion; I have it, but haven't gotten around to playing it yet. I imagine it plays the same.
Oregon Trail
Anyone remember this game? You went from one point (the state, I forgot) to Oregon. Or Williamette Springs. You have a name, and you have to choose from about 6 professions--each with their own advantadges (banker starts out with the most money, whereas doctor reduces the amount of illnesses, for example). Along the way, you'll hunt, trade, and fend off against the Trail.
Much of this game revolves around chance and luck, I'd say. It's just a menu of buttons to control hunting, rations, shortcuts and the like. Hunting is simply a crossfire shooter.
Oh, and take care of your wagonmates. You might need to trade them for stuff.
Super Solver: Ancient Empires/Treasure MathStorm
These are two educational games that I thought I'd play after Gizmos and Gadgets.
In Treasure MathStorm you use elementary math to solve puzzles. Solving puzzles will get you pieces to go up to more difficult puzzles in order to defeat the villain; I think he's taken over the North Pole or something. In order to buy the pieces, you need coins--exact change to be, well, exact. Elves give you coins if'n you bag 'em in a net and solve more puzzles.
I haven't figured the storyline for AE so much.
Each is nearly simple in playing. Arrow buttons/mouse controls the Super Solver. Enter is inputting an answer, and in order to open doors, press up. Shouldn't be so hard.

I'm gonna play Alone In The Dark soon. Maybe Warcraft.
Here's the links:

Happy gaming!

PSN Wish List
I've been wanting to talk about this for a while.

One of the places I've bought software for my PSP is The Playstation Network. It not only has the latest PSP titles for purchase and download but also grand old PS1 titles that have been mated with emulation software so you can play them on the PSP. Among those PS1 classics I've bought are Sno Cross (a snowmobile racing game) and Warhawk (a shoot em up). However the selection could be better. Among those titles I'd like to see under the "PS1 Classics" banner are.....

Ballistic - great puzzle game reminiscent of Zuma

Duke Nukem 3D - My first real taste of first person shooter games was on the PS1 version and it's a shame that the Duke never made it to the next gen systems (though Serious Sam for the ps2 captures much of the freewheeling, wisecracking, gun toting action that Duke was famous for

Road Rash 3D / Road Rash Jailbreak - Sure you can play Road Rash 1, 2 and 3 on the "EA Replay" package for the PSP, but Road Rash 3D and Road Rash Jailbreak are COMPLETELY different animals. They're more sophisticated and offer better graphics and sound effects than RR 1, 2 and 3 ever could hope to be.

Tempest X3 - Wonderful PS1 version of Tempest 2000. Still looks and sounds great.

Pro Pinball: Big Race USA - Excellent pinball game that's as good as any table the PS2 has to offer.

Bloody Roar - Mano e mano combat with people that have the ability to turn into animals. Very simple to pick up and very addictive.

Shellshock - Battlezone with an urban, 'hip hop' twist.

How about you? What would you like to see on this 'old school ps1' list?

Anyone Heard of Haunting Ground/Demento?
It's a survival-horror game in which you play a college girl named Fiona Beli. She's got into a bit of a car accident when she was going to do something with her parents. Now she's stuck in the castle with a bunch of crazies, and her only friend is the white German shepherd Hewie. Made for the PS2..sorry Xbox and GameCube fans. :(
As Fiona, you won't have guns at your disposal. You'll have the use of alchemic items to throw, and Hewie's brain n' brawn, too. Not to mention you'll have to hide and backtrack. A lot of backtracking if you're playing for the first time.
Your enemies run in unscripted real time, so they'll be very unpredictable in showing up, and they will have their own ways to deal with you. One "stalker", if you so choose, will be armed with a hot poker if you activate a certain cutscene. It's shorter, but easily deals MORE damage to you if you're on the end of it's red hawt poker lovin'. Due to this, it might have a steep learning curve. It's a giant game of deadly hide-and-go-seek with certain objections to give you before you leave (if you do). That, and it doesn't give that much of a tutorial. If playing, I would suggest you play around with the controls before you step out of the first room. Nothing will harm you up until you activate the cutscene where you'll meet your first enemy/boss. It'll get a bit complicated when you gain Hewie since you will be using buttons that you probably won't use often.
Hewie will be your lifeline in the game. Without him, you will not be able to proceed. That, and your endings will be dictated by the relationship you have with Hewie (there are 4 in total aside from game-overs). Hewie has been programmed act as a real dog. This means you are able to pet/train/scold/praise him. It is vital that if you do not make good friends with him, at least train him to look for things so it will help the two of you survive. Praising and scolding Hewie will have an effect on the relationship you have. The worse the relationship gets, Hewie will attack Fiona by rushing at her. Certain actions and items given to Hewie will affect the relationship as well.
Did you find x amount of items? How did you treat Hewie? What ending did you get? This will be taken into account after you complete the game for a ranking and a playtype. Different rankings and playtypes unlock different stuffs.
Okay, it's not a furry game per se, but I think some of you might enjoy a kick. 'Specially if you've played Clock Tower. It was supposed to be another installment, but things changed. It's the Silent Hill 4 of the CT series in this respect.

Where does the game lack? Where does it shine?

In terms of graphics, it's beautiful. Not to the extent of an epic movie, but it does the job.
Puzzles are difficult, but this is why we have gamefaqs.com. :P Good luck figuring the puzzles on your own if you want to. Speaking of, the enemies might not give you breathing room. Only a couple I know of will let you have this time.
The game sucks in the camera angle department. This is because in some areas, such as in between doorways, you'd think that your enemies would see you quickly.
There are also plot holes in the game as well. I have reason to believe there was a couple of cutscenes that were clipped, and a couple of items went unused. Rushed production perhaps?
Voice acting? Two redeemable actors. Moira Quick from Nickelodeon GUTS (old school, man), and a fellow from the series 24 Hours lend their support. It's "meh" otherwise.
Replayability? Eh, that's so-so. You might wanna play for the different outfits and accessories. Some of them will have helpful effects for Fiona to use. And some are just plain funny. Hewie has costumes, too. One of them makes him NEAR GOD--the trade off for this is if he has come back from the "dead", he will be as slow as hell until you regain his stamina (I think that if you have him in this costume, he won't die in Hard Mode. In normal "hard mode", if Hewie runs out of stamina, then the game is over). Sadly, there isn't even so much a "Making Of". Just a room to listen to music, look at cutscenes, try on outfits, and play a minigame. That's the jewel of the other content. It makes you appreciate Hewie by putting you in his shoes to guide Fiona from point A to B. Nothing gained but the swinging of sausages for best time. I personally love
The enemy AI...it's variable. It can be smart as hell, and dumb on the other scale as well. I say this, because if you use a hiding spot more than once, they'll definitely hover around it more often. Some of them will abuse Hewie if they know you're around hiding. :( There are moments where they just act plain...STUPID. Use that to your advantage.
The story..eh, it's not very compelling. It does have emotional points, however. You can see the comments for Fiona in normal mode, and Hewie in hard mode. Hewie's comments are so cute. And as I said, there are plot holes in the game.

PSP at MFF
How many are bringing their PSPs to MFF? I am.
Anyone going to hold some sort of PSP 'ad hoc' (multiplayer) event at MFF?

Second Life
Yo, does anyone even play it? o3o I figured I'd ask, since one can become an avian, scaly/slimy, and a furry. It's more of a "virtual reality" than an MMO since it's more about social and other aspects rather than a storyline. You can RP in areas called sims, though! x: Just hope your computer can take it, and that you're able to take a week's load of Crashtacular Cola and Lagmuffins in a day's time. ^^;
Oh, and not sure if anyone's interested, but it's easier to become a furry such as a wolf, fox, tiger, horse as well as others that I probably can't think of. Very difficult to become a scaly/slimy/etc. since that's where the market is. ;/
Money is called Lindens. It's 1 US dollar to every 250 Lindens. You can buy them, but you can also get a job (or jobs) to earn L$s, too. I work as a game host, and my pay is variable since it seems to be more dependent on winning contests and tips from my job. If you're good at programming, scripting, or something like that, then you can certainly earn more than I can.
Also, you can own land, too (but you need to actually pay real moneys for it), or you can rent, too. Personally, I'm good wandering around as a nomad since my income fluctuates.
Don't get discouraged, though! There's tons of freebies, 'specially for new people starting out! I know on the SL Exchange, where the marketplace is..there's more than 250 pages. I would certainly know, because I actually spent almost half a day browsing it.

I think we've got some issues going on with land and free accounts, though..so join at yer own discretion. If you do join, let me know. The name is Lehjamins Osterham--OH! That reminds me..you can't pick yer last name. I dunno why. x:
