I know, I know, the PSP doesn't have enough software. It has, like, three good games. It is such a horrible console, I wonder how it hasn't died yet.
Now, if you could not understand the sarcasm in that, there is no help for you.
For those who don't know, I love my PSP. I use it to its fullest. Lately, I have bought a Korean and Japanese game that you should give a try if you are a fan of the music/rythum genre. And frankly, who isn't?
First we have DJ Max Portable, that is the Korean one. How import friendly is this one? Very. Menus are in English (the important stuff, anyway). Surprising, I know. What is in Korean can be figured out by trial and error. Easily one of the best imports to pick up for the PSP.
Next up we have Taiko no Tatsujin Portable, otherwise known as Taiko Drum Master in the US (but without a shit controller). The PSP version fairs a lot better than the PS2 version. The only problem is that the menus are entirely 100% Japanese.
This is not so much a problem as it is overwhelming. It has downloadable content (yes, songs released after retail) and is easy to play once you go through enough trial and error getting through the menus. Downloadable songs add a lot to this title, think WipEout Pure.
Taiko no Tatsujin Portable 2 was just released, and I am looking forward to getting that one too. This one has 62 songs (!!) and a Story Mode. The first Taiko no Tatsujin Portable only had a measly 45 tunes (after downloads), they were so underachieving.
Now, all you people out there that say the PSP doesn't have enough good software, shut the hell up. You don't have to go outside of the US to find enough great PSP software, but just for you, my dear PSP nay-sayer, here are
two three titles you should not hesitate getting.
Since I was just recently successfull in forging a relationship with Lik-Sang for Blogcritics, I encourage you to use any of the above links and buy said products. And no, yours truly does not see the kickbacks for sales. I will write another blog post about this exciting new deal this weekend.
