Serebii.net has some screens of that Pokemon Dungeon game and it looks pretty cool. No idea how it'll play though.

Spam is okay in this thread because no real mods check this thread daily. We just got the gamer mods, and we rule.

Japanese sales figures for the week of September 12th through the 18th. For the first time in a long time the DS is not at the top of the charts, and while the PSP came very close to dethroning the DS, it was another of Nintendo's handhelds that did it. Nintendo rules Japan.

* 1: Game Boy Micro - 170,306
* 2: Nintendo DS - 72,167
* 3: Playstation Portable - 70,152
* 4: Playstation 2 - 24,396
* 5: Game Boy Advance SP - 11,147
* 6: Game Cube - 1,882
* 7: Game Boy Advance - 624
* 8: Xbox - 109

I'd still like to know what people are buying the PSP for...I mean...what does it offer? I don't see any games worth owning on it.

P.S. TMB, why don't you ever come on and get into our conversations? Damn you! We're talking about how much we rule!

And the PSP's sales boost goes to the fact they tossed a White unit out, and launched their Japanese killer ap. Sad sad PSP.

Does anyone else thing it's hilarious that it was beaten out fifteen year old technology?

I wonder why people buy the PSP, too. In order to get a real use out of it, you have to buy a 1gb card for videos and mp3's, and that's another bunch of cash out of your pocket. It seems too expensive, and that's not even counting the games, which are terrible, anyway. I dunno. I guess people like it for something, and I'm not going to fault them for it.

PSP - $250
Sony 1Gig Stick - $125.00
One Game - $49.95
Spare Battery - $42.99


Total: $467.94



All that money to watch fu*king videos that Sony won't allow you to encode at full resolution. Ridge Racer is great, but it only goes so far.

If I wasn't a damn collector, I'd sell the fu*king thing, but there's nothing to buy at the moment so whatever. And I repeat, you CAN NOT ply fighting games to any extent on this D-Pad. I put Street Fighter in my SP and kicked the whole game's ass on the highest Turbo setting. I put Darkstalkers in my PSP and can't even throw a damn fireball. It's a crippled mess. Period. Not even good for watching videos (which would be great if not for the resolution limit.) Oh, and fu*k overpriced UMD's also. Too big as an Mp3 player (Game Boy Micro wins that one). No good games (DS wins that one)

I see no use for the thing until it gets good games, and quite frankly, I think the steam is running out. It had the gadget people's attention, but that's fading fast. By the time Mario Kart comes out, it's going to be a bitch slap fest for Sony. By the time PS3, and those Chibi Mega Man games hit, there will be three words in people's minds....

Sega Nomad 2.

I gave the thing a fair chance, but as of yet, it has failed to impress me whatsoever outside of Ridge Racer, which I admit is absoultely stunning, but that's not enough. DS had a drought, but came out of it with flying colors. PSP stagnated.

He sure did. I probably should have mentioned it. Link also won the Tournament of Champions. The ToC went like this:

Mario vs Cloud
Cloud
vs ---------- Link
Link
Link vs Sephiroth

I'd like to know how an NPC like Sephiroth won the Character Battle, I think last year, anyways. He isn't even cool. Of course, it probably had a lot to do with no other Square characters being in the tournament after Mario clobbered Crono and Link whooped Cloud. That left Sephiroth all alone and the Square fan-boys took it upon themselves to alert every FF community they could to vote for Sephiroth, who still barely won. They did the same thing for Cloud this year.

Only this year the Nintendo fanbase seems a bt more raring to fight than others, so Mario won. Good to know they kicked all those little Square fanboy's asses this year. Most of those little turds think that FFVII was the first Final Fantasy or refuse to admit that there were more before it. Hell, some I talk to think the Playstation was the first console. Those who are intelligent fanboys (eg. over the age of 14) seem to believe Square is the right hand of God and must go about their daily life in a Cloud costume.

Don't get me wrong, I love Final Fantasy with a passion, but those annoying little fanboy turds annoy the sh*t out of me and I enjoy seeing them get knocked down a notch every so often.

Ok, I STILL haven't seen a backlit SP, but I found the OLD SP with The Original Series Zelda game packed in. Pretty sweet deal, but I'll hold off...

That totally sucks, they had a whole bunch at a couple of my stores. Did you try out a Walmart? I haven't seen them in EB or anything, but they've been in other stores that carry games.

Hey, question for you MP guys...

I love the game. I can beat it on hard with the 'hint's' turned off. blah blah blah. But that's not enough. I'm getting into the whole sequence breaking stuff now.

here's the question: Has anyone been able to do the dash-jump trick to get the space jump at the begining of the game? From what I understand, you scan something out of range, dash, let go of the scanning, then jump. I tried it for 30 minutes tonight, can just coulden't get it to work. any tips? am i even doing it right?

I've done it plenty of times. Yeah, you scan some brush that's out of range, hold it down, make sure you're at the bottom right part of the ship, do the side dash, then let go of the scanning, and turn yourself to the right. You should land on a platform and you can access the Space Jump Boots. It's pretty easy. You should watch a speed run of someone doing it in order to fully understand how to do it.
