    Adhoc Party(ps3)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adhoc_P...ation_Portable

    Has anyone played around with this yet? I rarely get online with my fat psp but this makes me want to buy more psp games that use adhoc online. I did a duel on tag force 4 earlier with this and it worked fine with no lag.

    Games I have that can play on it:
    Yugioh 5Ds Tag Force 4
    Dissidia
    Coded Arms
    Armored Core: Formula Front


    I consider on getting these before and or after christmas to play online:

    Monster hunter freedom unite - First time playing these if I do.

    Phantasy star portable - We can play it online through adhoc right?

    Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce

    I really can't decide on what else to get that people would play online with.

    So tri is coming stateside? I thought it wasn't because of the fee to play it online.

    Yea, Monster Hunter was hella fun to play on Adhoc (JP version). Glad to see the AdHoc Party in English. Got a few games I've wanted to play online (Armored Core especially).

    Only used it to play Monster Hunter, but it's a blast. Note that Phantasy Star Portable 2 is gonna have online play, so if you wait for that there's no need for AdHoc Party anyway.

    I suppose quite steep, but it's really not as bad as people make it out to be. You'll probably have some trouble when you first start hunting bosses, but once you get the hang of fighting big stuff it's generally just a case of how quickly you can pick up on enemies moves. It's a very dodging-oriented game, you take a ton of damage and you can only carry a small amount of potions, so it's largely a case of learning how to hit stuff without getting hit yourself. There's plenty of people in the thread in Gaming or Spam who can give you any help if you need it though.

    I raged when trying to play AC on the PSP.
    The control setup is just nowhere near as good as the console versions (I really should have thought of that before I gave it a shot, but I was overwhelmed with thoughts of 'FUCK YEAH!!! NEW ARMORED CORE GAME') and I just couldn't get any enjoyment out of it.

    Dude, no.
    It's hard as FUCK to melee in combat now because that shit is on the d-pad.

    So, really... imagine an enemy to that is forward and to your left... you want to turn with L be moving forward AND melee. In the PSP versions all 3 of those actions use your left hand.
    It's way harder than on the console versions. I constantly utilize melee and OB/EO (which is also in the d-pad) and disarming weapons is slightly more annoying as well.

    I imagine that the controls would seem decent to someone who isn't used to AC controls being a certain way but for veterans this shit is probably a kick in the nuts. Give it a try and see how you like it, don't just take my word for it... you may love it.

    (looking up and down not being on shoulder buttons also takes some getting used to)
