    Why I love handheld games

    PSP: Loco Roco

    http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/locoroco/

    click 'MOVIE CM' and watch it all. This game is about as trippy as Katamari Damacy, although it's not quite the breath of fresh air.

    DS: Mario Basketball 3 on 3

    http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ds/ab3j/index.html?link=txt

    click 'TV CM'

    wireless basketball game on a handheld? And it comes out next week? God help us all.

    I may never buy a console that tethers me to a TV ever again.

    Apologies if any of this is OFN. I just had to share.

    Mario Golf and Mario Tennis is why I wanted an N64, and after seeing this 3 on 3 bball game, I'm glad I own a DS

    Yeah Mario sports games are surprisingly addictive. Even more adictive than the real Mario games, IMO (and I hate sports games, in general)

    Metroid Hunters...god damn. I never thought there would EVER be a portable FPS worth a damn.

    It's just fucking awesome, I so need to play it on wifi

    You can play against me. I'm not good, but it is fun. And the voice chat is amazing.

    I was gonna buy metroid, but I just don't know if I'd like it. I think I'm kind of spoiled by FPS graphics nowadays, and if they aren't awesome, I don't even want to look at it

    How can you say you're not willing to play a metroid when you mention motherbrain in your sig

    Speaking of Phantasy Star II ... This morning the Playstation 2 ISO of Sega Ages Remake of Phantasy Star II finally finished downloading... It's in Japanese, but I've got the story memorized--you can get the script from Phantasy Star Pages :wink:

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I have freaking Baldur's Gate on my cell phone....I'm too scared to play it D:


    Best handheld game for me would have been the zelda games. They're just too much fun to pass up. XD

    the graphics are pretty damn good. Obviously not PC quality...but pretty damn good.

    Vade I'm game, but my wireless network doesn't like my DS ;; I should get the adapter for the PC, but I'm lazy and cheap.

    I'll post my friend codes when I feel less lazy
