The only Persona game I played is Persona 3 Portable but it's enough to make me not want to play P5 at all. Granted you'd expect P5 to be a huge upgrade but when I watch the trailer all I notice are things I disliked about P3.

I too was historically biased against non FF RPGs, I grew up playing FF4 and FF6 on SNES and later beat FF5 on PS1. But every time I dabbled in another series it never caught on with me or the game was just not very good. (Golden Sun, Wild Arms, Chrono Trigger though I played that one using emu so maybe that's why) I have to think that FF is popular in the west for a reason and having a FF-centric taste is justified. Secret of Mana was the bomb though, though it's action RPG, maybe that's why I liked it.

Another example: FFT = great
Tactics Ogre and Jeanne = ehhh

I've never played Xenogears, maybe should check it out using PSP? But I barely have been using my PSP lately... I'm trying to finish my bucket list and that's it. Speaking of JRPGs, one of the games I'm considering adding to my memory stick next is ZHP Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman. It's a Nippon Ichi game however, so it's probably awful..

Hmm, strange you liked FFVI, but not Chrono Trigger. They are considerably similar. Xenogears on PSP is a good call, go for it.

I remember it being some cliched start where your mom wakes you up and then you go to a fair. FF6 was different, it plopped you right in the action. I also found the graphics in CT less appealing. But I should give it another chance.

I spent hours and hours on Chrono Trigger back in the day but I probably won't touch it again unless they do a 3D remake ( :lol: at the guys/team that tried to make one and got shut down / cease and desisted by Square)

It was a great game, great music, fun times but I don't think there's any reason to replay it after getting all the different endings lol.

Amazon needs to start shipping my orders before I cancel them after finding better deals!

Target had Persona 5 for $25 so I cancelled $30 Amazon order and went to get it at Target lol. Now I'm waiting for Amazon to ship my Ys VIII order hopefully no one else sells it for below $39.99 in the meantime.

Haven't been paying much attention to Final Fantasy Type-0 since it got released on PS4 (so I didn't really consider it a PSP game anymore) but maybe I should grab it after all.
https://nicoblog.org/psp/final-fantasy-type-0-english-patched/

it's a six part download but I could always just test it out in emulator to make sure I extracted it correctly.

edit: ok do I just not understand how chrome works? I start the download but it doesn't appear in my download list. Instead chrome asks if I want to give mega.nz permission to install directly to my device. Then there is a download percentage on the tab where I started the download. Can I get a normal download or is that just not the current trend? :p

edit: downloading from Google Drive instead.

Finally extracted it, it's 3084 MB (I had a feeling it would be larger than the site claimed it would be, and I was right) and I verified that it works in emulator. (or at least the title screen does) My memory stick fits about 7.4GB so here's how it's going to go down:

3084 Final Fantasy Type-0
3423 Soul Calibur and both Tekken games
599 Final Fantasy III
193 Final Fantasy
total 7299 mb
(plus about 20 for Sonic 3D Blast Director's Cut and other Genesis stuff)

perfection. I'm actually glad Type-0 takes up so much space otherwise I'd have to throw in a jank game to make use of the extra space.
Btw did you know Type-0 uses O to select, X to cancel? That's gonna make me cranky. :?

p.s. I am becoming more like ertyu by the day. Made some characters using the character creator and I actually kind of like them! This feels sooo sad. xD
I just hope that save files created in emulator will work when carried over to PSP. By the looks of it though it ought to work.

Got used Dark Souls 3 and WWE2K17 for $5 each at redbox. The discs didn't look half bad! Not that many scratches at all!

I finally bought RPG Maker MV from Steam's Winter Sale ( :lol: like one minute before the sale ended for like $19.99). Yeah, I just had to wait until the very last minute ....

Now that I've purchased it I better make use of it and release a ton of crappy RPGMaker RPGs before they release their next version of RPG Maker :lol: (and before rockshard releases his game :lol: )

O no I just subscribed to the Humble Bundle annual plan for $130.80. I have a dreadful feeling I'm going to get stuck with a crapload of games I don't want to play now. :lol:

They really got me good this time with their extra "$20 extra humble wallet" credit promo. I couldn't resist and subscribed 2 minutes before the promotion ended. (OK, maybe if I held out 2 minutes longer :lol: )

Hmmm ... actually it seems it's been well worth it so far. February was Civilization 6 and that's been on my wishlist ever since I beat Civ 3. :lol:

And I just found out about the Humble Bundle reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/humblebundles/

There goes my year! Sigh 2018 I'll be playing the same games everyone else is playing and getting brainwashed into playing the games "curated" by Humble Bundle. :lol:

After I purchased the annual subscription, I realized (the generous) people always hand out their leftovers to give out for free on reddit. I mean they already did that with some of the Winter bundles. But yeah, that's why you see a lot of freebie and giveaway topics here and there.

I think I haven't bought a game since Metal Gear Solid V... Hm... I bought a used Tales of Vesperia in Japan afterwards. Seems that's the last game I've bought - a year and 7-8 months ago.

Excellent selection. I've reviewed Type-0 here, it's as good as new Square can do... Still haven't played XV, though... They just might have outdone themselves, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I just opened 13 booster packs. I should make this a regular thing! I'll go and buy 3 or so boosters a few times a week. I plan to buy a box as well, since I need to catch up on Rivals of Ixalan.

Ha ha ha. (Early) Black Friday got me Blackscar again and here are my buys so far after whittling down my larger list of "wants".

FFXV Royal Edition PS4 from Target $15

Monster Hunter World PS4 from Target $15

Assassins Creed Odyssey PS4 from GameStop $27

Here were my reasons NOT to buy the other stuff on my list (besides trying to control me money spending-ways)

Soul Calibur VI $35 at various retailers NO because it will have DLC later, who wants a game with an incomplete roster. Eh, I always preferred the free game updates model instead of the DLC model but I understand they MIGHT need it to survive these days.

Banner Saga Trilogy $20 PS4 from Target or $9.99 at Best Buy (in-store only) Hell no, I'm not driving to Best Buy just to get something that may or may not be in stock.

Assassins Creed Origins $20 from Best Buy. I thought it might be nice to have both of the newer AC games but nah let's try the newest one first before we "backtrack" to older versions.

God of War from GameStop $17 Yes it got plenty of nice reviews and awards this year but I already read the spoilers lol :lol: and I never really liked Kratos as a character anyway. I'll pass for now.

Dragon Quest XI $30 Best Buy this is a game that someone else wanted ... I don't like DBZ anime style (anymore or maybe I never did)

Yes I passed on a lot of other games I mentioned in the deals thread but whatever, I'm hella tired and I'm not going through them all again. :lol:
