Harry Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince Quite Contrary

As if releasing a blockbuster movie is not enough, the makers of the Harry Potter movies are also banking on their video game franchise and hopes to make Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince a success in the Sony PSP gaming scene. Come November 2008, Potter-maniacs will be able to enjoy back-to-back Potter action on both the silver screen as well as on their smaller but no less dynamic PSP screens.

In this sixth installation of the Potter series, Harry and his trusty mentor Dumbledore are hard at work in order to vanquish the dangerous nuisance that is Voldemort. The game will introduce Professor Horace Slughorn, Dumbledore’s resourceful but hapless colleague-cum-friend, a character that has been well received in the Potter books. The wise head of Hogwarts enlists Slughorn’s help to help gather information and seek out Voldemort’s weaknesses. There will also be side stories pertaining to the Hogwarts students’ love interests especially those involving Harry’s growing affection for Ginny, Ron’s rather one-sided relationship with Lavendar Brown and Hermione’s stubbornness about revealing her true feelings for a certain someone!

Patapon PSP

Pitter Patter Pata Patapon

psp game patapon It’s a quarter to three in the morning, my neglected puppy is whining for its dinner (about seven hours overdue) and my eyeballs are this close to falling out of their sockets. Still, it does not stop me from continuing one last mission (or so I said three missions ago!) of Patapon, one of the most incredulously addictive PSP games of all time.

Besides boasting of an unusual game play, Patapon is also great eye candy for those who are tired of games proclaiming that their “cutting-edge 3D graphics” is the best there is. Patapon is not that, and in a way because this game is uniquely classified for its unpretentious tone and manner. There are also two other reasons to play this game: Loco Roco and Rolito. Loco Roco is a PSP game done in a similar style although in a different genre, and was also a product of Japan Studios that developed Patapon. Rolito on the other hand, is French genius whose artistry brought the cute little eyeballs to life in Patapon.

PSP Game God of War: Chains of Olympus – Kratos Restores Light to the PSP

The God of War is a firm favorite among fans who love hack-and-slash games and is famous for its gruesome death scenes. It was released in the PS2 platform years ago and due to the endless requests and support from fans, Sony Computer Entertainment saw it fit to bring the game to the PSP and thus God of War: Chain of Olympus was born.

god of war

This is a prequel of sorts where the story begins a decade before its predecessor. Kratos is sent to the ancient city of Attica where he must defend it from the vicious Persian army (think Xerxes’ henchmen in the movie “300”) with his trusty Blades of Chaos and his trademark Gauntlet of Zeus. Kratos succeeded in his mission but misfortune fell when he saw the sun disappearing from the sky, blanketing the world in a sheet of stark darkness. He then encounters a myriad of mythical characters in his quest to restore the sun but in the process, many revelations were revealed including situations pertaining to betrayal, sacrifice and redemption.
