Music Requests; Other PSP Games I’m Interested In

August 5, 2006 at 3:08 am 3 comments

Dial-up seems to be working for me. It takes a while to get used to dial-up after years of broadband internet. Anyways, elelamb, a member on GameSpot, is opening his e-mail account to people’s requests for LocoRoco music. He has most of the tracks from the full game, which we’ve been waiting for. You can e-mail elelamb: I’m looking forward to it, and I’m going to e-mail him myself once I get the chance.

Because the LocoRoco news is really dry this week, I’m going to talk PSP games. Other PSP games have been making news recently, and I’m looking forward to some of them. I look forward to what you have to offer, as well:

The Sims 2 Pets (PSP)– I know what you’re saying: are you kidding me? But, I must’ve been the first person to pick up a copy of Petz 4 (PC) back in 1999, and I don’t really regret it. Virtual pets on a portable console makes sense: take little Sparky the Labrador with you on the road. Nintendogs (DS) has made the DS a commercial hit. Why not put pets onto the PSP? EA Games/Maxis is coming out with The Sims 2 Pets, which is following the critical flop that was The Sims (PSP). This game allows you to adopt your own pets, whether it be a dog or guinea pig. I’m unsure of whether this game will be based just on pets or whether it will be about taking care of your Sims and their pets. It arrives October 2nd for PSP. Looks interesting.

Sonic Rivals (PSP)– Who doesn’t know Sonic the lovable hedgehog? Sonic has been trying to target Mario for so long–finally it arrives on the PSP. SEGA is working hard on this racer, which is 2D characters in a 3D environment. This allows for stellar graphics. But, I only like my Sonic fast, so I’ll have to wait for the review of this one. There has to be more depth than in previous versions and new features, though. Sonic Rush (DS) caters to fanboys on Nintendo’s portable console but Rivals needs to do much more to cater to all Sonic fans (PSP owners or not).

Tekken: Dark Resurrection (PSP)- SONY has long supported Namco’s Tekken series. The fighter game first launched so many years ago and genre lovers have bought each version. Tekken 5 (PS2) didn’t disappoint, so Namco’s next job was to re-create that experience for a portable console. The PSP, with its PS2-like graphics, is the capable portable device that can really play Tekken. Dark Resurrection is pretty much like Tekken 5, except it implements many more arcade games (including Bowling :)). No wonder it has been determined a hit by GameSpot and IGN! This game is a definite buy for any PSP owner (or potential owner).

Lumines II (PSP)- The popular Tetris-like puzzle game first dazzled us when it came to the PSP more than a year ago. Now, Q Entertainment is pushing the puzzle game to the next level. This game really looks good. Besides graphics and a great soundtrack, this game is actually really addicting. I don’t own it, but I do know one thing: this will be on my shelves come this winter.

NBA Live 07 (PSP)- I’m a real sucker for this series: EA Games has been releasing a new NBA Live every year on pretty much every console. It is no surprise that most agree that the experience of this game is most enjoyable on PS2 and PSP. The PSP version of the 2007 game will arrive this Fall. While the game’s biggest new feature is updated rosters, added extras, and X-Factor (which will allow vets like Payton and Horry to step up to the plate). Looks very good. I hope they add in arcade games and one-on-one (like the PC versions).

    We appreciate your support. Thanks very much for notifying us about this–we weren’t sure how people were going to react to far-out topics like this one that take a look (more at) the gaming industry than LocoRoco itself. It appears that our off-beat topics attract more and more people than ever. Your so very welcome.

    It seems that you’re up on politics (aka your blog, which I only skimmed). How do you feel after Ned Lamont, an anti-Iraq War cable executive beat Joe Lieberman, Bush’s comrade and a pro-war Democrat?

  • […] The PSP has been panned by pretty much everyone this week, so why not get some good news? Potential PSP owners are always spamming on boards asking “what should I get?”, “what is the IT game for the PSP?”, and more. Even though I similarly came up with a list of the most anticipated PSP games besides LocoRoco that I’m waiting for, there has to be a top 10 list for potential PSP owners who are buying the device today. Right? Here we go with the top 5: […]
