Thinking of doing an extended article on the PSP when I hit the Easter hols next weekend...

Getting sick of how maligned it is. There's some amazing software on it... I must have nearly two dozen titles. Thought I'd give them a rundown and big the little wonder up.

Not familiar with SS at all. What is it, a beat 'em up?

It was the first major weapon-based fighter, afaik. Also, it's spelt Samurai Shodown. :)

Still got Samurai Shodown if anyone's interested.

Also got Valkyrie Profile: Convenant of the Plume on DS.

I'm back in game-playing form starting on the 9th. Without a doubt if I've got Persona 4 by then, the review will be up that Sunday.

Jus' puttin' it out there. :p

picked up DCS: Black Shark the other day, awaiting the arrival of a new flight stick to play it with but it looks like a lot of fun :)

Will you want a Hakuna Matata review to supplement Trip's Afrika first impressions?

As I've been enjoying Persona 4 so much I'll get a copy to you from Amazon/play if you're happy with that Yorkie :)

It'll be with you faster that way too.

Hey, if you're happy to do that, I'll gladly accept :)

But in the interest of fairness (it wasn't your fault you were saddled with this) I won't hold you to it - if you want to save the tenner and just review the game yourself, I won't mind (save from the emo wrist-slicing). ;)



Translation: polite acceptance of offer

Your reviews are so much better than mine that it's not a problem.

Should be with you Saturday, 'The Occupier' :)

Thx ^__^

Don't bother with "The Occupier" nonsense if you just go by the address I PM'ed you - the shop name should be good enough :)

I'll take SS for the team, if you're desperate... can do a fast turnaround too. Probably shouldn't offer to do any more RPGs for a bit.

Already done, Dude. At least you'll be sure it's yours :)

The Last Remnant review should be with you by the end of the weekend, Hairy. Same probably goes for the Rhapsody whateveritiscalled game.

DSi feature by Monday at the latest.

If someone puts a gun against my head, I may continue playing Elite Forces Unit 77 and get the review done.

Alternatively I may just write a rant about it and not score it instead.

Stay the fuck away from this game!

Eeep, I take it it's not as good as the video might suggest then :)

Heh, I think you're getting a taste of what DS owners have been putting up with before GTA came along and set the bar so impossibly high.

I rename the DS the "Pheonix Wright machine".

Unless Phoenix Wright shows up on iPhone. Then the DS is done, yo.

Blimey that's a thought - I wonder if Capcom would do any iPhone / iPod stuff...I mean it'd be the perfect machine for a PW game.

Or any story-driven interactive novel/point and click. I could handle something nice and calm, like that.


They've ported Phoenix Wright over to mobiles (albeit episodically).

Yeah there's not much in the point and click stakes on the iPhone / iPod. Bit of a shame that because it'd be so well suited to that sort of shit.

There's a lot of those hidden object games though. And far too fucking many Tower Defence games.

Ah well it's a DS game, shit controls go with the territory. Unless it's GTA

Arrived, and with a spangly bonus music CD, so thanks for that. :)

I'm building my angst in preparation for the 9th when I can start playing it :)

As promised my review will def be up next Sunday. But don't let me reviewing Persona 4 get in the way of you reviewing it too, M_E, if you feel like it.

The first couple of hours are pretty solidly cutscenes and not much else, just as a heads up.

Music CD? That's an unexpected bonus.

The Last Remnant and DSi done and sent to you Hairy.

I'll leave Persona 4 to you Yorkie, I'm going to have too much on to do it justice in the next week anyway.

Well, I'm a big fan of the VP series (spent roughly 250 acquiring the LEs of the first two games), but I wouldn't know when I'd be able to get the review written by, especially if the game is as big as its older siblings.
