The PSP has become known for RPGs and especially Strategy RPGs in the last couple of years. With Ragnarok: Tactics, Aksys brings another quality one stateside.

Few debuts on Sony's PlayStation Portable were as instantly arresting as Patapon. Sandwiched in the middle of their 2007 E3 montage, the teaser was short on context but high on appeal. Its 2D presentation was entirely unique while its gameplay, as we would soon discover, was a concept all its own. Patapon was a rhythm/action game where the player controlled a tribe of warriors by inputting short button sequences that not only had to correspond with commands, but also blend into the beat of the music. Upon release it was one of the most legitimately innovative titles of the current generation, and nearly four years later there still isn't much else like it. Except, of course, more Patapons. The problem with success is it often results in demand for a sequel while completely ignoring whether or not one was needed. Katamari Damacy has struggled to innovate upon its basic concept while Bioshock 2's narrative contributions were looked upon as wholly unnecessary. They're still great games, but purveying sense of familiarity pulsing through every vein didn't have the punch of their prequel's arresting (there's that word again) debuts. Patapon 3's fate isn't too different. ...

The MLB is back in action with spring training well underway. Earlier this month, Sony's San Diego studio released the latest iteration of their MLB sim, MLB 11: The Show. Nathan reviewed the outstanding PS3 version recently, and I've since spent a few hours with the PSP version. Bottomline, if you're looking for an MLB sim on the road, you can't beat this year's version of The Show.

I've heard of the Tactics games, but never played them for whatever reason. I got my chance to turn that around recently with Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, a new title from Square Enix that is exclusively on the PSP. I thought this was some kind of sequel to Tactics Ogre, and in a way, it is. However, it's more of a remake or re-imagining of the original, highly acclaimed and loved game from 1995 known as Tactics Ogre. All that aside, if you are in the market for an outstanding strategy RPG experience, you need not look any further.

Even though I have never played them, I always found the games in Ys series interesting. Not just because of the efficient title, but because they were big titles on the TurboGrafx platform, a platform that I have only recently added to my collection. Anyway, as the years have passed, the Ys games have been re-released multiple times, including this month on the PSP. Ys: I & II Chronicles gives players another opportunity to experience two truly classic JRPGs, this time with a refreshed presentation. The end result is a charming JRPG experience that, while having some drawbacks, is a solid PSP release nonetheless that should appeal to existing Ys fans and drum up new ones, too...

Square Enix released a new action JRPG last week known as Lord of Arcana. It gives players the chance to create their own character and hunt numerous monsters as they try to unlock the mysterious power of the eight Arcana stones. Only with this power can our hero bring peace back to the kingdom of Horodyn. This will prove to be an arduous task, however, especially if you aren't a fan of this specific genre...

Kratos is back on the PSP with an all new adventure that takes place in between the original God of War and God of War II. Created by Ready At Dawn Studios, the talented folks behind the previous God of War PSP adventure (Chains of Olympus), Ghost of Sparta has all of the trimmings you've come to expect from the AAA series.
