It is one of the best games ever. Life like and the physics of this game is rather impeccable. I really like the graphics and the two assistants that follows me on my back, they do shoot and cover for me :P Unlike some other games where they are just there for show.
PLay it, watch the trailer and then play it on your XBOX.
This is just for PSP only, which makes me sad. I wonder when they’re gonna make it for XBOX because Kratos on XBox is just yummy personified. Not to mention, the game is pretty fun and brutal which makes the ending of your day so much more satisfying and cathartic.
Now, Kratos is back and angrier than ever. Seeking the forever unending saga of saving the plunging world and his pledge to Gods. Will the mortals ever survive without Kratos’ help? And wrath? Will Ready at Dawn, develop one more for XBox? Maybe sellout PS and just move to XBox out of wisdom?
We know that the Nintendo DS and the Wii outsells the PSP Slim, normally. Well, normally. However, in the past 3 weeks it seems that PSP Slim’s sales have shot up unexpected. Currently 580,000 sets have been sold, which is quite a feat considering how slow sales have been for Sony in general.
For a long time, the Japanese hardware sales charts have been predictable–Nintendo DS Lite on top, Wii outselling the PlayStation 3 in a ratio of 4-to-1. But the last three weeks have seen a phoenix-like rising of the PlayStation Portable, as it grabbed and held the top slot.
According to figures released by Famitsu, the new, lighter version of the handheld has already shifted approximately 580,000 units in Japan–no mean feat considering the portable version 2.0 was released there just two weeks ago on September 20.
The first week saw 250,000 new-model PSPs sold. But even the week before the PSP slim’s Japanese launch saw the PSP selling well due to the release of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, along with 77,777 limited-edition bundle packs.
Is it me or is the face of Lara Croft forever changing? In the first Tomb Raider game 10 years ago, and the new ones now, it seems like to me she’s always changing her face…but anyway, that’s not as important as the game, of course. It was just an observation of mine. Eidos have decided to remake the old Tomb Raider game by giving it better graphics, better control and better moves with Tomb Raider:Anniversary. So no more point bosoms or jerky moves from Miss Croft. The locations in the new game is the same as the old one, with lots of memorable locations. But the game now has a fresh puzzle and moves to look forward to. You’ll still remember names like Pierre Dupont, the Scion and others… we last saw Lara in Peru when she learnt that another scion has been found in Greece by Dupont so off she fled only to be greeted by hungry lions. Now, that’s a memory refresher for you.
PS2, PSP, and PC owners will get their chance to experience Lara’s first adventure in Tomb Raider: Anniversary on June 5.
OK, now this is even weirder. In my last post, I said that 46% of people surveyed by Famitsu were not happy with the upcoming release of Dragon Quest IX. But the same magazine published a survey of what people thought would be the top 10 hit gaming products in 2007 and that very game made #2.
A week ago Muken and I went to the Tokyo Game Show 2006. Games are sometimes somewhat interesting but don’t usually look too nice in photos, and the only interesting stuff in my humble non-hardcore-gamer-otaku opinion was the Sony pavillion, but they put signs everywhere to forbid pictures to be shot.
So, I went with the crowd, and shot the booth girls instead…
LocoRoco, which was Sony’s attempt at making Katamari-esque alternative success for their PSP platform, has seemingly flopped in Japan. The game has already been found in bargain bins or with slashed prices in shops around Japan, and the bundled PSP and game pack has not been selling as well as anticipated.
Personally, I like this game. But, being a gamer chick probably makes me inclined to like this game anyway, on account of the lack of guns and explosions and abundance of kawaii blobs and catchy theme songs.
Oh well, I’m disappointed, And a little surprised. This game had the right amount of kawaii-ness and innovation to be a big hit in Japan, nevermind worldwide. It’s being said that it’s a result of bad marketing strategies by Sony (ie: too much marketing) but I wonder if that really means it’s the end for the game?
GamersDaily has posted a photo of the new PSP headset, which will see its first use in upcoming game SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo! I’m sure there are many looking forward to seeing these put to use in online play.

PSPupdates.com posted a scan of a Japanese magazine page on “Boku no Watashi no Katamari Damacy for PSP” (Katamari for the PSP). It seems all the Katamari Damacy fans out there will be very happy to hear about the new features available on the PSP version.
– The game will come with a WiFi battle function. There are several braches in the storyline.
– Story: The “Paradise Isle” where lots of animals live on suffered a tsunami. The whole isle was turned into a big mess… A drifting turtle which carries the little Ouji (Prince) arrived at “Ouji Island”. The prince can’t just stand there without helping out the animals from the mess. And then the story started…
– Day/night and season change is included.
EG, this Japanese game site, details (as far as my sketchy translation skills can tell me) a re-release of the first original Rockman (Mega Man overseas) game with updated graphics for the PSP. According to the article, though Rockman was not initially popular at its release in 1987, it has since gained fame. It’s expanded into five different series with dozens upon dozens of games.
The Rockman remake will be unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show from September 17th – 18th.
