First Weeks With My PSP

PSP Cropped

I’ve had my PSP for a few weeks now, and I love it.

I downloaded this awesome Star Trek: The Next Generation LCARS interface wallpaper (above) from a random website.

I’ve mostly been playing Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, Patapon, and Every Extend Extra. All three are frustrating in different ways.

Castlevania is frustrating because I’m really not used to controlling a character with a whip anymore. The last Castlevania game I played was Symphony of the Night, and Alucard used a sword. Also, when you double-jump with Richter, he jumps backwards. It’s not very intuitive. His powers are much more limited than Alucard. Perhaps I was just spoiled in Symphony of the Night and after that, no Castlevania game will ever match up — which is kind of funny, because I’m playing the re-release of Rondo of Blood, which is the direct prequel to Symphony of the Night. I feel compelled to keep going, though, because I can unlock Symphony of the Night if I finish this.

In Patapon, I’m having trouble getting a proper rhythm down, and that’s pretty key for attacking. It’s a cute game, but I don’t know how much I will get into it.

I kind of don’t even understand Every Extend Extra that well at this stage, but the sparkles and shooting are entertaining.

I have Pump It Up Exceed as well, but I haven’t tried it out yet.

I do want to get Lumines eventually. When the PSP first came out years ago, I really, really wanted this game. I downloaded the PC version of Lumines when my PC wasn’t messed up, and I quite enjoyed it.

I can’t think of any other games I would like for the PSP at the moment.¬†Does anyone have recommendations for current and/or upcoming titles?

EDIT – 14 April 2009: This is a list of PSP games we currently own.
