My PSP Slim


Jeanne d’Arc is a great little SRPG I’m enjoying right now – I don’t even want to start Final Fantasy Tactics until after I’ve completed Jeanne d’Arc.

I have a Nintendo DS Lite as well and I have to say that I’m more of a PSP gamer where portable consoles are concerned. There just weren’t that many involved games in the DS (except Puzzle Quest) and coming from a big fantasy CRPG background kinda made the DS a poor companion on train and bus rides. Being able to play videos on a large screen (relative to the iPod video I carry around all the time) is awesome. It’s not an iPhone but it’s good enough for watching videos!

Wow, I thought I was in the twilight zone when I read the first few sentences of your post. I got Jeanne D’arc and Final Fantasy Tactics for my birthday a couple weeks ago and I too decided not to remove the shrink-wrap from FTT until I finished JD. And likewise my DS has been collecting dust ever since. However I have found a few games on the DS that I liked. The latest Zelda is pretty good… but it wasn’t good enough to keep me from dropping it like a hot potato for the PSP games.

Wow amazing coincidence. I got my PSP for my birthday but I’ve opened FF Tactics just to watch the intro movie and some tutorials. It looks great but Jeanne d’Arc just appealed since it seemed to have a smaller learning curve.

I did play Zelda for a bit and I’d still be playing it too if I hadn’t gotten a PSP – like you say it’s good, but compared to some PSP RPGs it’s just not a match (unless you’re a big Zelda fan, which I’m not).

I just started playing FFT a few days ago and at first the battle system felt clunky compared to Fire Emblem, but after I got used to it, it’s great. Though I still am at odds with the camera. It should be freely rotatable not locked into 4 different angles. I can’t put the game down though and I just got into chapter 2 and have logged in probably 5-8 hrs easy.

I also already own NDS, but recently purchased PSP because there are many RPG titles coming to PSP. I’d definitely play both Jeanne D’Arc and FFT, once I beat the Ultimate Ghost N’ Goblins…
