Lunch Time? PSP Network Gaming Time

Tekken 6 - Bloodline Rebellion
If only Namco is able track usage of their PSP titles, they might be surprised to find that Tekken 6 has been played on almost every PSP unit out there.

Who wouldn't be? Tekken is such a hit among arcade fanatics that a portable release would be a sin to miss. Even after a short while of playing, you will probably itching to test your cramped button smashing skills against a human opponent.

This is what Tekken 6 is really about - versus mode and ranking. And the fluid fight animation… makes one imagine how intimidating he can be if he can just pull those amazing combos in real life.

Who’s the better button smasher now?

If you have seen the movie, you might have second thoughts wanting to give this game a try. This is a youth-oriented racer; dads like me with discerning driving tastes prefer realistic versions.

But then again, its multiplayer value is so much fun to play. Handling of the cars are relatively easy, powerslides aren’t that difficult to pull, and cars don’t wreck at all. In fact, everything is so simple I was wondering why I can’t even beat my lunch pals to the finish.

Ok so I wasn’t paying attention to those power boosts, devious shortcuts, and falling debris. And are those mini-tornadoes in the middle of the track? And my car can jump over those mud pits at will?

Twisted Metal - Head On
A lot of people liked its series so much that it has earned the game the classic status. If you’re not familiar with the series, the game’s feel is similar to first-person shooters only this time you use vehicles.

The objective of the game is to be the last car standing by blowing stuffs around (not just opponent) with extreme prejudice. Your options… machine guns, missiles, mines, ricochet bombs, napalm, freeze attack – you name it. Not to mention that each of the vehicles have special abilities as well.

Let the network mayhem begin.

After a while of looking for power-ups and scouting for the best spot to assault my buddies, I felt woozy. I guess my eyes are not built for games with 360 degree explorable surroundings. I get nauseous even after a few minutes.

We had a blast playing, if it wasn’t for my weak point. I will rest my eyes for now… payback later.
