Ya know, I'm a huge fan of the PSP but even I couldn't find 50 games worth owning....

That because I don't own an actually 50 PSP games, Seraph only meant that I buy a lot of games, he didn't mean it literally.

Damn can't believe Saint?s Row knocked Call of Duty.
I returned my copy the Single player was unoriginal, unintelligent missions, Bad screen tearing, and disappearing cars with enemies appearing from out the blue. A lot of gaming sites reporting the online multiplayer is laggy, yet it's top. :???:

To be honest, i'm not holding out any hope for GTA 4. I was a huge fan of the free roaming genre but, nowadays they all seem to disappoint.

I was looking forward to Just Cause like a kid does Christmas. I checked other boards for impressions of the demo and full game. All i saw was disappointment and complaints.

Maybe for me the genre has become stagnant. I can?t see myself playing Mercenaries 1 now even though I loved it when it was initially released.
If GTA4 doesn't fundamentally change things, it'll hail the end of the genre for me.

I still thought the Just Cause demo was pretty fun. The draw distance was kinda crap, but it was fun. I'll rent it at the very least

I downloaded the demo of Galaga but didn't keep it. I already have it on Namco Meseum #1 or whatever it is for the PS1. I also have the far superior Galaga '90 for the TurboGrafx-16. That game rocks hard! I can almost make it to the last area.
