RPGCast – Episode 475: “God Otter”
Chris is merely a man. If you prick him, does he not bleed? If you give him two awkwardly full bottles of soda, does he not spill them on his laptop and require an expensive repair? And if you give him a cup of coffee after that repair, does not his cat spill it on the same laptop and break it again? What? Oh, those last two aren’t normal? Oh, I guess he is an idiot then.

I can’t think of any set of games that would make me buy the Playstation Classic. There’s some games that I never played, like Thousand Arms, that I’d like to have available digitally, but I’m not paying $100 for it. FFVII is probably my favorite game, but I already have it digitally on PS3. PSX had probably my favorite library of games due to all the great RPGs, but this just doesn’t work for me. Too recent. Too available by other means. Too expensive. If I couldn’t get the games any other way my dream list would be. FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFT, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Wild Arms, Suikoden II, Suikoden (I guess have that too why not), Thousand Arms (never played, but I want something new), Brave Fencer Musashi, Tales of Destiny, eh…whatever the rest are up for grabs, I don’t really know.
Localized versions of the Persona 2 games and a AC adapter block.
I think Anna was confusing Legend of Dragoon and Legend of Legaia. I’m 99% certain Dragoon is on PSN (I’m pretty sure I bought it for $1 out of morbid curiosity at some point, but never actually booted it). Legaia is not available anywhere other than eBay.
I think the only thing I would be interested in having on the PS Classic would be Valkyrie Profile 1 (I keep hearing that the PS1 version is better than the PSP version I own but never played, despite it being the game I bought with my PSP-1000). Maybe I would add Tales of Destiny to that list.
I’m certain neither of these will be included. What we will get instead will be things like Gran Turismo (1, 2, or both), the original Tomb Raider, one Crash Bandicoot game, and some crap first party games like Battle Arena Toshinden or whatever the name of that game was. Considering the original PlayStation was mostly targeting older gamers at the time, it would not surprise me if the whole package was rated M.
I may wait for this thing to be hackable before I take the plunge and buy one. Then again, I have three PSPs and three Raspberry Pis in the house.
I know the topic of the PSP dock game up during the podcast, and I believe only the PSP Go had a dock and was capable of connecting with a PS3 controller, since it’s the only model that had Bluetooth. It also had the smallest and best screen of the PSP family.
Is Thousand Arms really going for $100? I need to figure out where my copy is.
I was talking about the price of the Playstation Classic. I wouldn’t be hugely surprised though.
Ah, I see, my bad. I just did a quick check, and it IS actually going for around that price on eBay. While not bad (and I suspect it has not aged well), it is not worth it.
If Ehrgeiz, Tobal 1, and Tobal 2 were on the Playstation Classic I’d buy it. All of these are fighting games with action-RPG-like quest modes, and none of them have been released on virtual console in the U.S. Tobal 2 was never released in the U.S. at all.
