game: Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel
review | 07/10/06 | Laurie Taylor
The graphic novel has earned itself a standing as an independent art form over the years, and is now moving into the digital realm. Following in the footsteps of the Silent Hill Experience, Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel comes to the PSP under the banner of a new medium. Except, instead of just telling a good story in classic graphic novel form, the developers felt obligated to include uninteresting and tedious gameplay elements into the presentation. The result is promising, but less than perfect. Graphic novel fans should be excited about the potential, but for now the rich promise of digital graphic novels on the PSP remains unrealized.

Systems like the original Xbox and Sony's PSP
are praiseworthy on their own, but they can be made even better through the creative application of homebrew software. Enthusiast developed software has helped shape the console industry since the days of the Sega Saturn and the original PlayStation. This posting on the DCEmu forums
takes a brief, but informed look at the state of homebrew development on today's and yesterday's systems. Included in the list are common consoles, like the Xbox, as well as older systems, like the DreamCast. It's an interesting read if you've dabbled on the fringe of the community and are curious to hear an overview of how things stand.

Will Wright's Spore is a hot topic. Due for any platform that will run it at some point in the indeterminate future (you know how these uber-game projects go...), Spore offers, literally, the whole universe in a game. Begin as a jelly little protozoa and work your way through the state of nature, early tribes, civilized urban life, and finally interstellar exploration and mayhem-making. There are a hundred things to love about Spore, and Blaine runs down some of them in this preview.

Bethesda Softworks has a verified hit on their hands with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. So the natural question we have for the company is, "What's next?" Not much is known so far about future Oblivion updates and expansions, although we expect to see some of that at E3, too. So far Bethesda has announced they will show off a new Pirates of the Caribbean title (to coincide with the movie) and two new Star Trek titles (one for PC/XB360 and the other for PSP/DS). Matt James rounds up the details we know so far, and we've got some Trek screens.
game: The Silent Hill Experience
review | 04/26/06 | Laurie Taylor
Konami's Silent Hill has come to PSP, but that's a misleading statement. The Silent Hill EXPERIENCE has come to PSP, but apparently the experience doesn't include any actual game. Rather, The Silent Hill Experience is a UMD full of all the things we would expect to get for free as extras and unlockables in a AAA game title. It's got comics, video and music from the game, but it ultimately left our resident Silent Hill fan, Laurie, a bit cold. Get the full review here.
game: Generation of Chaos
review | 04/20/06 | Matt James
Generation of Chaos is an anime-styled tactical RPG that features, as its main selling point, massive battles with upwards of 30 combatants on each side. It sounds really cool, and tactical RPGs (think FF Tactics or Arc the Lad) can be so much fun. Unfortunately, Generaton of Chaos features so many obscure menus that it ends up being about as much fun as Microsoft Word. Be sure to check out Matt's review before venturing into the chaos.
game: Metal Gear Ac!d 2
review | 04/19/06 | Jeremy Kauffman
Metal Gear Ac!d 2 is another iteration of the card and tile, turn-based take on the fan-favorite stealth action series. The first iteration of Ac!d was not exactly a hit (then again, it's still one of the few titles created exclusively for the system). How does Ac!d 2 improve its game? It improves it with completely "non-gimmicky" additions like PS2 connectivity and an "amazing" 3D viewer that is guaranteed to cramp you up and give you a headache. Ac!d is a unique experience to say the least, and you can get all the rest of the details in Jeremy's review here.
game: Ys: The Ark of Napishtim
review | 04/02/06 | Matt James
Ys: Ark of Napishtim is the latest iteration of Konami's anime-RPG franchise. This time Ys makes its debut on the PSP, bringing a PS2-style traditional RPG experience to the best little PS2 emulator out there. The game makes the transition from home console to portable title fairly well, except for the PSP's monstrous load times and a complete lack of any portable-friendly game pacing. Get the good and the bad on Ark of Napishtim in Matt's review.

review | 03/13/06 | Shawn Rider
Neuros Technology has released a five ounce beauty called the Neuros Mpeg-4 Video Recorder 2. This little device is like a VCR for your memory cards: You can record any video input to Mpeg-4 format on a Compact Flash card or a Sony Memory Stick. This makes the Neuros Video Recorder 2 a very appealing device for any media-savvy PSP gamers, iPod Video owners, and anyone else with a media capable PDA.

game: Street Supremacy
review | 03/12/06 | Matt James
With at least three other solid racing games available for the PSP, a racing title has to do something above and beyond good just to stand out on the system. Either that or something really bad. Street Supremacy is now on store shelves and begging for you to give it a go. But is that wise? Here's a warning: Speed walking might seem fast paced and high intensity after a few hours strolling down the streets of Supremacy. If you're looking for something to make the mundane elements of your life seem interesting and exciting, Street Supremacy might be for you. Read on for details.
game: Winning Eleven 9
review | 03/06/06 | Matt James
Konami's World Soccer Winning Eleven Nine is one of those long-standing genre leaders: Any fan of the videogame "footie," or soccer as we call it in the US, knows that the Winning Eleven series is one of the best titles out there. The new PSP version of Winning Eleven Nine offers just about everything you'd expect, which means that if you're in the market for a soccer title, you can now get your fix with your fave series. Matt James has the review here.
game: PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient
review | 03/01/06 | Shawn Rider
An early release in the coming tide of brain training titles due to hit the US in the next year, PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient is a game that doubles as an intelligence test. Developed in collaboration with a real-life Professor of Psychology from Kyoto University, PQ ranks your smarts based on the "modular theory of intelligence." Is it as quirky and nerdy as it sounds? Or is it true that taking a test can never be a good time? Check the full review here.

They are one of the often unsung heroes of the game development industry. But the consistently high quality of titles has proven numerous times why Treasure is one of the best game development houses in existence. With such fan classics as Gunstar Heroes and Astro Boy in their library, Treasure's games have created a rabid fanbase of twitch gamers and import junkies. Our man, Robert Brooks, has a retrospective of Treasure's games along with five classic retro reviews, each going live over the next week. Check it out here.
game: Samurai Warriors: State of War
news | 02/16/06 | Shawn Rider
Koei's latest historical Asian brawler is heading to PSP in the very near future. Samurai Warriors: State of War has gone gold and is in production as you read this. In addition to announcing the impending launch, Koei also sends word of a revamped website for Samurai Warriors: State of War. The new site is sized and optimized for the PSP's small screen web browser. That is a nice touch for PSP owners, who can browse the web with the browser included on the handheld gaming system. Get more details about Samurai Warriors here.
