Hi, it's this thread again.

I just bought myself a PSP and I have a few questions:

1. Any good games I should get for this :D

2. I heard there are some problems with the 3000 (i've purchased a 3000). How bad are these?

3. What's the best type of PSP to get?

Lumines 1 and 2. Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. Lufia: Silver Star Story possibly. Don't know much about the new translation.

Just got Castlevania. And holy shit do I love it.

I just barely found out that you need a memory stick, though >:/

Oh dear...yeah you need one of those. I like Tokobot and I guess I'd suggest it. It's a cute little puzzle platformer. The controls are a bit ass but I like it...

Here's what I have and recommend, if you're into this genre, your OP didn't give much insight into your tastes:

@ Spell Caster

I'll give anything by Atlus a try.

Also, I keep hearing that 3000 has problems or that it'll mess up.

What PSP has the least problems/ best ease of use?

@ Zero

-sigh- i've been jaded from most of Square Enix's input, but I'll still play the Tactics series.

No Kingdom Hearts?
Looks like I know who I'm culling next... MUAHAHAHA

Seriously, Kingdom Hearts proves that SE hasn't lost all of its talent just yet.

...wat.
Anyway, I'd also recommend Me and My Katamari (I think that's the one for PSP).

Switch-mode-power-supply? Also, so what?

I can hearily recommend Persona 1, Persona 3 Portable, Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, Valkyria Chronicles II and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

No need to get both Lumines games, just one will do.

How are the other Metal Gear games?
ALL CREATURE WILL DIE AND ALL THE THINGS WILL BE BROKEN. THAT'S THE LAW OF SAMURAI.
Portable Ops has a horrifying control scheme. It was unplayable for me. Portable Ops Plus is an expansion pack which emphasised the multiplayer, but lacks the main singleplayer game.

Like Peace Walker, Portable Ops is based around capturing and recruiting enemy soldiers. Unlike Peace Walker, it sucks.

Metal Gear Acid 1 & 2 are alright. They're turn-based card games in which you move Snake across a grid like in a turn-based tactical game, and use various cards (gun cards for shooting, land mine cards, body armour cards, etc.) to clear each stage.

If you're severely masochistic, then you should try picking up the Badman series, as well as Half Minute Hero and Whose That Flying?

There's also the Darkstalkers, Power Stone and Street Fighter collections. And GTA Vice City Stories is always awesome.

@ Capcom fighters collections: DO WANT!!

Well, all thee are available for download for pretty cheap, so you could just download them right now, without even having to go to the store.

YESH!

There's also the Neo Geo fighting games, Blablue Calamity Trigger Portable, and Soul Calibur Broken Destiny, again available for download.

gets mad about videogames
Any good games I should get for this :D

since you didn't specify any genre:

I think I'll also try Gradius Collection:

I like mostly action games, some rpgs (I'm willing to put up with Atlus' input, but am mostly burned out from Square Enix, with some exceptions), fighting games, beat em ups, metroidvanias, arcade style action games ala Devil May Cry etc. Really, my undying love for classic pre-Symphony Castlevania should tell you all you need to know about my gaming tastes.

Then there's also the two portable God of War games.

2. I heard there are some problems with the 3000 (i've purchased a 3000). How bad are these? 3. What's the best type of PSP to get?
The 3000 has issues with how its screen works. Interlacing and screen tearing, IIRC. It's nothing noticeable if you've never held a 2000 in your hands, it will eat your brain with doubts if you did. Good luck.
The 2000 was the best, quality-wise (better screens than 3000, same everything else). They are also the easiest to hack, and therefore are immensely popular for an entirely illegal reason.
