Question: Was the first Valhalla Knights any good?
I saw in the store but didnt pick it up because it looked pretty generic.

My girlfriend surprised me with a Slim PSP for christmas (already had a fattie).

I hope Sony takes advantage of the 64MB in firmware features to compliment all these sexy 2008 games.

Seems like my PSP is staying in the draw for 2008. GoW is the only game that really tempts me but it's not the kinda game I want to play on the go....maybe Patapon, we'll see.

I was about to shrug off the list till I saw Wild Arms and Crisis Core. Didn't know they were coming so soon.

Damn, FFVII: CC, God of War, Kingdom Hearts, Dissidia, HSG, Musou Orochi, Star Oceans, Monster Hunter, Phantasy Star...I'm going to predict stream-crossing of PSP sales in Japan. That's just a crazy line-up. And now that developers are taking notice, and seeing how the system is selling now, a software resurgence, beyond shit like Atari Classics, is imminent.

I was really down on the PSP for a long time, but it had a great '07, and the future looks good. I picked up one yesterday along with Logan's Shadow, and I'm enjoying it.

We need as many of these as possible. Attention needs to be drawn to the great library on the system, and people need to buy these games, or else devs will go elsewhere.

Valhalla Knights 2 (3/27/2008)


I want many of the games mentioned, but this one... oh how much i want it! I hope some publisher will pick it up.

I loved the first one for the gameplay and the style in the char design. Felt sort of like a mini action MMORPG in the battles and character handling (what with creating your chars, switching jobs around to min/max your stats and making the strongest party... only missing feature imho is a way to create your own armor/weapons...). Graphics and story aren't its strong points tho, and to really appreciate the fights, playing with an hacked firmware is a must. Without 333mhz mode it slows down during some battles (with 333mhz mode tho it's so smooth!).

I really hope the sequel gets picked up.

How can Birdman be bad? It's Phoenix Wright with a coat of Hanna-Barbara paint slapped on.

Anyway, I want that, Star Ocean, and Echochrome.

Pretty good list. I want around 6 of those games and Harvey Birdman is even remotely as good as Pheonix Wright make it 7.

i'm not suggesting anything that would break compatibility with fatties. but there's some features (in-game XMB, youtube, google maps, custom soundtracks) that might not be possible in 32MB ram that I would like to see.

Yes it deserves it, I just got that new Syphon Filter for Christmas and I'm really blown away by how far along the games have come. It has fuckin online play I was totally blown away because I've had my psp for a year+ and never tried online gaming with it. Plus I got hooked up with a 2gb memory card. Finally!

I had the 32mb stock card for way too long :lol
