  1. We do it! I've had this game in a library of an old PSP account for what must be years, and as a big fan of the later games I was always disappointed at the fact that I bounced off it so hard. For those who don't know, the Persona series is a bunch of popular JRPG games that follow a group of demon-summoning high-schoolers who go dungeon-crawling and uncover some big adventure or mystery. The 1996 game was already obscure enough, but Europe never really got their hands on it before the PSP release in 2010, so gamers over here can hardly be blamed for having P3 or 4 as their introduction to the series. As a fan of 3 and 4 I was keen on taking a look at the origins of the series, and so I bought the PSP release digitally. Unfortunately, the first game is very different to how we view Persona today. With grid-based first-person dungeon exploration, a grid-based battle system where character positioning plays a part in tactics and negotiation that's much more in-depth than it was in 5… one would be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed. I tried pretty hard to get into it on PSP but with so much to consider it can be a slog to say the least. Making this thread should – in theory – motivate me into trying again and not give up partway through. However, I'll outline a few caveats about how I'd like this thread to go. Firstly: I'd like to play on the lower difficulty because I have barely any experience with this game. For what it's worth, I played P3 and 4 on Easy for the first attempts and today I use Normal mode in those games, so forgive this wussing out. If all goes well I might even use this thread for a Normal mode re-run in the distant future! Secondly: I'd encourage anyone else who wants to join in to do so, but keep spoiler etiquette in mind. Perhaps I'll miss bonus optional stuff, but that's all part of the first experience. One other caveat – for screenshot purposes, I'll be using the PPSSPP emulator. Like I said, I have bought the PSP digital release before, but this will be much more convenient for screenshotting. And of course, if this thread sees no action for months, you're welcome to mock me on Twitter or in PMs and motivate me into coming back!

    Essential PSP games

    Please read this spoiler first! Loco Roco A sort of puzzle platform game, with pretty woolly and imprecise controls which would normally be the death of any such thing. But not here, for some reason. Press the left shoulder to tilt the world left, and the right shoulder to tilt the world right. Press and release both together to jump. You have to work yourself around some complex levels, collecting new locorocos as you go which merge into the original and make it bigger. Luckily you can demerge and merge at will, so you can get through tight spots, and this is where the puzzle element comes in. Hidden rooms, difficult jumps ... I think the reason nobody hates it is that it's got tonnes and tonnes of charm. And the music is amazing. Getting through the levels is easy; finding everything is hard. It works well on the Vita as well. http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/100488-loco-roco-cool-new-psp-title/
  5. I'm fully aware this game got some love in both the PSN and Vita threads, but I feel it deserves a thread of its own. In my humble opinion, it's easily one the best games of 2012 so far (and my personal fave), but the US press hardly paid any attention to it and developer FuturLab doesn't have the marketing muscle to go up against bigger hitters. They would like to make a dedicated Vita version, but this will only happen if enough people show their support. I'll do my part then. So what is Velocity? Let's watch a trailer first: So it's basically a retro shooter with a couple of wonderful mechanics. It should be noted that the best way to play this game is to go for the Perfect rating for each chapter as that forces you to learn the levels and master the mechanics. To get a perfect rating you need to equal or beat the target time, rescue all survivors and get the maximum XP (which means you also have to defeat all enemies). These three goals must be reached in one playthrough without losing a life. Easy? Not really, but the challenge is all part of the fun. To reach these goals, you'll need to master the mechanics. First up is boosting. Boosting is essential to meet the target times. In fact, some levels force you to boost the entire way through. You can also unlock special challenge levels and in some of these you need to boost through stages without touching the sides. Hard, but great fun. The second mechanic is bomb flinging. In Velocity you don't just fire off a bomb that will clear the screen, you fire off a bomb in any of four directions to clear the screen of enemies or obstacles and free survivors in a straight line. Hitting targets while boosting takes skill, but hey, too many games these days are all too easy, right? This player is pretty good at it: But don't take my word for it. Here's what Edge had to say in their 9/10 review: http://www.edge-onli...velocity-review tl;dr: Stop moaning about the Mass Effect 3 ending and play one of this year's unsung gems!

As usual, shake salt liberally, but the below is what's rumoured to be coming:40+ Exclusives ComingNew Sony Santa Monica Game Will Be ShownPlaystation World DetailedSee The ConsoleAmazing Big Vita TitleFinal Fantasy Versus & Kingdom Hearts 3Demon Souls 2 What They Need To Show: There are some very obvious questions which Sony will finally have to answer. It's already been stated that PS4 won't require an online connection, so they should be good from that angle, but the question of DRM will hang over their entire conference unless they get it out of the way early. If it's good news, expect them to make it a cornerstone of their conference announcement, if it's bad, then we'll probably only hear about it in the interviews which follow. PS4 is obviously going to be the major focus, but pleeeeease don't ignore the Vita this year. It was just embarrassing last year.

    Has the smartphone killed mobile gaming?

    In recent year we've seen the launch of the 3DS and the PS Vita. Both did terrible at retail, although 3DS sales picked up after a price drop and Nintendo rolling out some big guns like Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and recently New Super Mario Bros 2. The Vita still seems to be struggling despite a pretty strong launch line-up and some excellent downloadables, and even big shots at Sony are now going public with statements that it's hard to cement third party software. Looking at the festive season, the release schedule for both seem to be pretty dire. Am I being overly pessimistic, or is the often heard argument that people grab their iPhones/Androids for quick fix gaming on the road true after all? That the market for true, console-depth games for mobile platforms has pretty much dried up apart from a niche group of interested people? I got this lovely Vita and 3DS lying next to me and there doesn't seem to be coming out much of interest for months, WHY?
  8. http://gematsu.com/2...s-project-omega A new game by some of the people who recently did the Jet Set Radio HD remake conversion, has some staff from the originals who also did stuff for earlier Ryū ga Gotoku games working on it. No idea if the teaser images relate much to whatever the game is about, but it's being shown at TGS.

  10. Times: UK: June 5th 2:00 AM BST EU: June 5th 3:00 AM CET US: June 4th 6:00 PM PST US: June 4th 9:00 PM EST Video Streams: http://us.playstation.com/e3-2012/ http://e3.gamespot.c...erence/sony-e3/ http://www.gametrailers.com/e3/ http://www.g4tv.com/...ences/Sony/135/ http://www.youtube.com/user/E3 Sony are also going all out on streaming the show directly to your PS3. You can watch a live stream of the conference via Home (contain your excitement, I dare you ), and there will be an icon under the 'What's New' category of the XMB, which will pipe the entire show through to you. What Are We Expecting: Vita, Vita and more Vita. Saying that, there's been plenty of buzz about Sony upgrading their Playstation Plus service with cloud streaming and a more tiered price offering. Plus will also be announced for Vita. There's also going to be a host of games of course. Sony has the habit of revealing many of it's upcoming schedule ahead of E3, and this year has been no different. So far we've had: God of War: Ascension Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Sports Champions 2 The Last of Us The Last Guardian Sony Allstars: Battle Royale Sly 4 Ni No Kuni Dust 514 The Witch & The Hundred Knights Warrior's Lair Little Big Planet Karting Papo & Yo The Unfinished Swan Also hinted at, are new games from Quantic Dream and it's high time we hear what Guerrilla Games and Sucker punch are up to. The real meat of the show will be Vita though. Already it sounds as though Sony are going to be pushing the platform hard, with recent announcements/leaks including: Sly 4 Assassins Creed 3: Liberation Medal of Honour: Warfighter Sony Allstars: Battle Royale Ghost Recon: Final Mission Need For Speed Jet Set Radio Little Big Planet: Karting Call of Duty Bioshock Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection Lego Batman 2 Oddworld: Strangers Wrath Little Big Planet Killzone Phantasy Star: Online 2 Soul Sacrifice Urban Trials Rayman: Legends Retro City Rampage Sound Shapes Gravity Daze Guacamelee ...and a multitude of other smaller titles I'm also keen to see if they have any serious Playstation Suite announcements, and how much support that's getting. What We Got: Take a look at that list above, take a good look and then ask yourself why Sony chose to talk about just 5 of them... five.....F.I.V.E....fyyyyvvvvveee, God of War, Last Of Us, Sony All Stars, Assassins Creed Vita and Beyond (New Quantic Dream). No talk of cloud gaming initiatives, no remarkable new services for either PS3 or Vita announced, no Vita price cut (although an Assassins Creed bundle is planned), no shake up of the Plus service (although current NA subscribers do get Infamous 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Just Cause 2 and Saints Row 2) and no surprise exclusives. The only big surprise was a JK Rowling partnership on a new initiative called 'Wonder Book', which is a Move compatible children's book, which features plenty of AR tricks. Last Of Us was the star of the show, and shows that this is a surprisingly violent but markedly different game to Uncharted. Looks awesome. Overall though, this was a huge disappointment, and based on their release schedule, it didn't need to be. I honestly don't know what they're playing at, but to be frank, it was a waste of a great stage. Gutted.
