Random Ramblings Vol.19 : Tales of the Heroes Twin Brave – Elaborations and Additions

This time I’ll talk about how to make TotHTB more…Tales-like. Now these additions I’m gonna list aren’t really to make the game better per se(it won’t make it worse) but it would give it a feeling that it belongs to the series and takes notes from its games. Those could also be used for a hypothetical sequel. Continue reading

Playstation Portable and the games that could have been

It’s no secret by now that I have a bias towards the PSP, sony’s first portable system that has reached its 10 years on the market as of now. The reason for that is because the PSP, just like Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance, focused on developing a strong console without gimmicks for the developers to focus on making good games.

Just like the GBA game me Mega Man Zero series, the Castlevanias it had and a lot of good fighters in the forms of the Street Fighter re-releases and awesome Dragon Ball games, it also made new and fresh games that would become fan favourites like the Boktai series, the Mega Man Battle Networks and some excellent Strategy-RPGs like the Fire Emblems and the Super Robot Taisen revival series, the PSP also had great games on it. It impacted me even more though because a lot of the games on the PSP were dreams coming true for me, with the Dissidia series, Ys 7 and its spawns, the newest Super Robot Taisen games reviving old IPs, some excellent Hunting games and some of the best anime games to be put on the market.

The tl;dr version of all this dribble is : the PSP had almost all the games I desired, therefore uber based towards it.

Now that its cycle has ended in the market and everybody jumped on the Vita…yeah…I’d like to throw around ideas that take advantage of the hardware since I believe that, like the PS3, it can still be pushed futher before being completely abandoned. And my greatest proofs are games that came towards its end and still had room to push it, like God Eater 2. So look forward to a new series of posts regarding the games I always wanted to make for it(and one or two changes to some previous articles). 🙂 You can find the posts I’ve made and will make here.

Have a good one everybody. 😀
