@Afgavinstan is right about VC2 coming to the PSP and, while Edge didn’t score it too highly, the prospect of me having Front Mission 3 in my pocket, ready to play at a moments notice, without having to fanny about with emulators and such is very exciting.
Very, very exciting.
The only reasons I’m going for the PSP rather than the full blown PS3 is, a) I do kinda despise Sony…every one of their products I’ve ever had had failed, catastrophically, rather quickly, and b) more importantly, I can pick up a pre-owned PSP with a bunch of games and UMDs for, like £50 on eBay.
if I should cave in and buy a PS3 (which I cannot afford to do) purely so I can play some decent, recent Turn Based Strategy games.
Really, Xbox has fuck all. The ones on PC are usually Indie games, and so, have some epic mass failing to them, that reviewers don’t point out because “it’s an indie game” so minor details like, say, shit combat, shit characters, shit story, shit art and shit overall execution aren’t factored in to the review. They are just happy that they tried.
But…valkyria chronicles looks beautiful. Looks just what I want. ( other than Front Mission 3 on the Xbox, but thats never gonna happen )
