    I've been neglecting it a bit recently. My ideal would be if the iPod could load PSP games but obviously that isn't going to happen anytime soon.

    What should I buy for my PSP to get back to using it again on a regular basis? I don't have that many games, and the only games I bought would have been released last year.

    I was in the same boat as you.

    You only need to buy 1 game Loco Roco it will have you hooked.

    @ 2nyRiggz - Apart from Loco roco I've never even heard of any of them!
    Are they obscure import titles?

    I'm well aware of the DS fanboyism and if you can't answer my question without a DS reference I politely ask that you get the **** out of my thread. Hope that's clear. Thanks.

    Tekken DR isn't out till septmeber here :eek: But if you want cheaper psp or ds games for that matter check out

    www.dvdboxoffice.com based in canada. Tekken for example would only set you back £24 including free postage where the uk high street retail price is £34.99

    Thanks for the pointer. I'll have to check the site out. Although I do still prefer moseying along in a shop and a tenner extra won't kill me.

    Tekken is tekken..Tuma run is basically Mercury2 with a cell shading look to it(theres a demo downlaod somewhere..check it out but its a tough one). Dark Mirror is a Socom type game with online stuff which is very fun...very.


    Tokobot is a platform type game with you taking control of these robots that help you along the way....this game is $29.99 so pick it up.

    Theres is Exit(puzzle) ...Daxter(platformer) ...Megaman MHX.....Luminies .....Every Extend Extra(Soon to be released)

    Check out gamespot.com & IGN.com

    Puzzles, 3rd person shooters(some), racing games and tilt games like loco seem to do very good on the PSP.

    I'm very interested in Every Extend Extra....seems to be a page right out of lumines book. Demos are coming through for the PSP that bring in a little bit more entertainment.

    Come on silent hill:0rigins and MGS: PO

    Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is fantastic. A definite must. I got Daxter with my PSP. I haven't tried it yet, but my girlfriend is hooked!

    The only other game I really want to get right now is Gran Turismo 4 mobile. Its coming out in the first week of September, should be pretty amazing!

    Shooters are a problem on the psp unless you are a master with that little analog stick. I find it pretty hard to control accurately.

    haha, soon as I saw this thread title I thought about posting that but thinking "nah, too much". but since you said it. yes. A DS Lite. :p

    My honest answer is I didn't find any of the 6-7 or so games I played much fun. though this was pre- Loco Roco days. The most enjoyable game I could find was Burnout, though I only got the Xbox version a few weeks before it, sorta paled the PSP version. :eek:

    Before I googled it I thought that was some sort of drainage game.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Will definitely buy Loco Roco, will try a couple of others.

    bah, nothing is ever too much for me :p

    But since humor falls on deaf ears occasionally, I have to post this

    Now, I've never played it but the Lemmings game looks pretty sweet and is something I have been envious of PSP owners for quite some time.

    played it, controlling miniscule lemmings on a tiny screen is not fun.

    edited for my version. Lemmings cannot be played with dpad/analogue nub. Testament that Lemmings is like Worms. Everything after the initial games isn't worth bothering with. (worms DS... urgggh)

    Cheap, but i'm betting the cost of a flight to the US from London the OP's location would make those games less of a bargain :p
