Fucking hell, I might have to get a PSP because of this game. It looks awesome. Of course, I'm a sucker for weird, offbeat Japanese stuff that doesn't fit in with the usual genres. If you can't tell from the trailer, it's essentially a rhythm-based RTS, where all the unit commands are mapped to drum beats that you perform with the face buttons. Staying in time with the beat makes your units perform better, and you unlock new chants and unit types as you progress through the game. It's made by the same guys as Loco Roco, for those of you familiar with that. Anyway, it just came out in Japan a few days ago, and it's due out in February in the States, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Dammit, me too.

It's both cute and hard-core looking.

Game is so fucking awesome.  If you have a PSP, get it now.  It just came out today.

I just priced this game today.

It looks pretty good. I don't have a psp, but like everybody else, this game is making me think that I just may get one. It looks all kinds of interesting, and fun.

Now I'm even more sad that my boyfriend sold his PSP.  Damn him!  First he takes away Lumines, now he ruins my chances at this!

The only complaint I have is the repetativeness of the minigames.  Why couldn't they randomize the beats for them, or even just have a few different onestocycle through?  It gets tedious just doing the EXACT same thing over and over.
