North American PSP Game Releases – Week Of October 21st
PSPFanboy has a weekly feature where they list the PSP games that are going to be released during the following week, and I am a bit fan of it. However they only provide a link to the Amazon sales page for the game, without any additional information. Since I do not know many games, most of the games listed are unfamiliar to me, so I have to search GameSpot and IGN for a description to see if the game is worth purchasing. I’m quite sure that others are doing the same, so I decided to start listing the upcoming releases on my blog along with a description and links to more reviews.
The game that I am most looking forward to has to be The Sims 2: Castaways, because I like RPG based games. However The Sims series for the PSP is plagued with terrible in-game problems such as long load times. Also Warriors of the Lost Empire looks like a good game. Even though the screenshots show terrible graphics, for me it is the in-game experience that matters the most and I am still searching for the perfect RPG game for my PSP.
