Real Deal (Entry 1)
Hello PataPon WORLD!!! Dr. Hopeless here with the "REAL DEAL"!!!
And the REAL DEAL of the month (the year is still to early to say) IS PATAPON 2!!! Now I was a little frustrated at wanting it like others on the 5th of this month and a little concerned about the DD format only for North America, but there is always a way to ENJOY this GREAT game!!! And it sounds from reading multiple Patapon threads and forums that there are ALOT of people upset that other countries got a UMD version. Well check this out...the 3 reasons that stand out are
1: Other countries have the UMD
2: We want the right to chose or I'm not getting it!!!
3: No re-sell / trade in value
This sounds like a cry mostly from children and I understand U want to pout and talk bad about the game (I have to ask my parents for funds and I'm probably in the "dog house" for asking for alot of stuff already or not doing good in school perhaps?!?) lol. Now I understand the right to chose, I agree with that altogether, but 4 those who are whining about "I got to get a or another memory card or "I don't have the ability to download the game due to no wi-fi access so I don't want the game...why go thru the trouble???" Well my friends...PATIENCE is the key (and it's time upgrade your PSP)!!!
"I only got a 512 mb memory stick" or I got to make room on my 1/2/4 gb memory card!!! Sigh!!!" STOP IT!!! Memory cards are a decent price now a days. An 4gb memstick from 2 years ago was the price an 8gb mem stick is today and I complained, but I got it and it saved me alot of hassle!!! Wi-fi is all over the place now, even in schools (get permission and do it on breaks or lunch, even after school) Go to a coffee shop that provides wi-fi. Believe U Me, that it took awhile to upgrade to a 4gb mem. stick myself And if you want something that bad, try earning it from your parents or save up your money to get what you want for your PSP instead of blowing it on something dumb!!! There's a recession folks, I know money is tight in some households. Hey but U can also play it smart, do some "PS homework" for the games, hardware, firmware upgrades. I have two birthdays my real one and BLACK FRIDAY( for those who don't know...the day after Thanksgiving)!!!
And about the no re-sell/trade in value. I have mixed feelings about that. Now Sony might have to reconsider some things about the DD format. Yes you can get mutilple copies of your game in case your PSP/memoery stick gets damaged...GREAT!!! But what if the game sucks and you want to return it, you can't...STINKS!!! The DD format U can put multiple games on 1 memory stick without the hassle of carrying mutiple UMD's around and it saves on your PSP motor from BURNOUT...GREAT!!! With the DD format, UMD's will become scarce and U wll have less and less opportunities to "try-out" a used UMD at your local GS/EB Games store...STINKS!!! So yeah, I'm happy with a frown of cautiousness about the situation!!!
So hopefully SONY has heard your cries, but the way things are going in the world of PS, U may need to get 2 steps ahead or you'll be 1 step behind whining and talking bad about new technology and how you can't access it!!!

Maybe youre right, some people dont have access to wifi or dont have big memory sticks, but lets face it, DD its the future of the games, i believe that even when lots of people are complaining, me among them, we all will download it anyway, why? because its patapon 2, because we want to play it and because we wanna have fun with the multiplayer.
For the wifi access there are the starbucks, the movie theaters and even some mcdonalds, the memory stick can be a little tricky, but saving up money or doign chores to earn some works perfectly fine.

well considering that PSP2 will not usse UMD (according to the rumors) its good that Sony got started on it with just PSP.
They probably picked Patapon 2 to be the guinea pig since the first one was one of the best game for PSP.
Sony said this was due to the piracy issue but I'm pretty sure people will find a way to rip the downloadable versions and distribute them as well.

Alright ALRIGHT FOLKS let's CALM DOWN!!! Here Dr. HOP3L3SS is HERE and I'm l'ing mao...why don't you do the same!!! ANYHOO...my thread is to "ENLIGHTEN" anyone who has something "Negative" to say about the future process of UMD's to DD's and to also talk about PATAPON 1 &/or 2. Well, let's start with the latter...I am half way thru the game (at SHOOKLE the plant) and I still haven't created no Mahopons (the magic pons), so I still have alot of work to do. This game is like an onion...with layers and layers of goodness....If I focus in one area too long, I'll forget about the others area's that needs completing!!! The replay value on this game is AWESOME!!! (Oh and for the record...i'm just an animated, above-average, serious Gamer (especially when it comes to "Good 2 Great" games!!!)
Now for the Mini-games:
They are still a great part of the game, but has anyone noticed that FAH ZAKPON'S plant mini-game is way hardest mini-game of em'all!!! It makes the Patapon 1 version look like child's play!!! lmao The only advice for that is, patience and don't get caught up in the music!!!
Now about the Umd's vs. DD...
Alright to settle this...if U want the Umd, import it stop fussing about how Sony has "broke your heart"!!! Now U know that this is where Sony is heading...just like when the t.v.'s go from analog to digitial in June 2009. I know what it is, kids, teens, adults get complacent (settled with the notion of not changing anything in their lives dramatically) and when change is to come alot of people get scared and talk bad about it. It's O.K., people were scared when George Bush left office (not me, farewell party favors were sent out...lmao), but noticed how we embraced change with Pres. Obama...well Sony want's us to embrace change! How hard is that?!? Yeah U can B a rebel and say I'll buy up all the Umd's from here on out...but get ready "Gamers & Gamettes" because in the next couple of years we will be seeing a change in the PSP format that has to keep it's pace vs Nintendo DS...so it you want to keep it real...leave a msg, if you want to B.S. you might as well move on to the next thread because I will NOT acknowledge PANSIES!!! lmao lmao lmao
The Dr. has prescribed U some knowledge...it's up to U to take it and make something good of it!!!
'Nuff said 4 NOW!!!

Hello Pataponians!!! Dr. HOP3L3SS is here with the "Real Deal"!!! And the the R.D. is the PATAGATE!!! Can U tell the difference of difficulty set on these levels (and I'm not talking about racing the clock, but the "just timings") Yeah, that element gives this game a nice twist!!!
Here's a doozy...I let my game go into sleep mode every since the demo and I am currently 1/2 way thru the game, sitting on 411:48:10!!! Yeah buddy...that's how we roll!!! lmao
On a more serious note...Sony can U please drop a on-line mode to play with other players on-line from all over the world. That would give this game (an INSTANT CLASSIC!!!) the re-play value similiar to Killzone Liberation (the on-line mode is what 2 1/2 - 3 years on PSP). I'm looking for players for ad-hoc, but to no avail...(Food For Thought).
Until next time...
Don't let your Pata's get Ponned!!! lmao
