That is a pretty big handicap in this context.

Can't be helped. They've given me so little reason to own one up until recently, and I'm still so addicted to my DS I don't think it'd warrant purchasing a PSP just for the one or two truly great games on the thing. I've played some of the games with friend's PSPs, but I haven't been overly impressed yet. Maybe this will do it.

i remember having to wait for five other people to make their turns in Risk. Maybe while you wait you could have some mario partyesque type mini-games. Obviously not with mario characters.


Bow before the Llamas! They demand your respect!

You know I have thought about that to. The only problem is it might distract the people playing. Since turn based games are like chess (especially when you have two player matches), in that you have to monitor the openest moves and plan your strategy. People might also begin rushing their turns just to get back to the minigame. So there are a lot of factors to consider.

They might have a time limit option like Civ has

Perhaps the minigame that keeps the people waiting busy could be Lumines. That game was good. So there's at least one really good game on the thing. ;)

Yes ... well ... I would speak in leet, but I've found that a decade of putting up with it makes you wish it weren't there. And no, ladies and gents, I don't own a PSP. I'm afraid I'd purchase it, play it for a day or two, and then simply head back to my DS -- at which time, the PSP would do nothing but collect dust and turn into a significant waste of money.

It looks pretty intresting, I'm kinda bummed about it being only 2 players multiplayer though.  I'll wait for more reviews to pick it up ;)

Im not, waiting for 3 other players to move in Advance wars is painfull.

Anyways, defintely looking foward to this one, gonna pick it up one release date (Like 5/23 i believe)
