In case anyone cares: There *are* challenging opponents in Hot Shots Tennis PSP

Yep, you read that correctly: I just faced my first challenging opponent in Hot Shot Tennis: Get a Grip--a dropshot-obsessed wench (actually, she's more of a spoiled brat) named Amorette.

Anyway, she nearly beat me. She ran out to a 3-1 lead--the match in question was of the first-one-to-win-four-games-is-the-victor variety--before I worked my way back into the set, which ended with me winning 4-3. (Or was it 5-3? I can't remember if I had to win by one or two.)

This isn't Amorette, by the way. It's Bridget, a blond cheerleader.

I'd like to add, by the way, that I beat the little terror while wearing some sort of Elizabethan or Victorian gown. Oh, and I had rose in my hair and a giant ruby ring on my finger.

The customization alone sounds worth playing it for!

Yeah, it's definitely one of the best things about this game, Justin. I'm actually prepping a post about the "five things I love about Hot Shots Tennis PSP" as we speak (er, type), and the game's crazy costumes definitely will be one of the five things I include on that list :)

Shouldn`t you have gotten some sort of handicap for the Victorian gown?

I can tell you that under the Canadian rules for Victorian gown tennis you sure would;)

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ha ha! Yes, I think I should have, Sean. It isn't easy winning a match wearing such a bulky outfit :)

BTW, now I have one of my characters (a girl) wearing a Hawaiian/hula outfit, another wearing a kimono and another (this one's a guy) wearing some sort of "Island dancer" outfit -- which means he's practically naked (except for some sort of wrap around his waist). Hot! ;)

Sean said...

LOL, can you choose what they wear? That is a pretty cool game feature!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Yes, Sean! Basically, every time you beat an opponent you get some sort of outfit or accessory. Also, there's an shop you can go to after a certain point that offers up even more accessories/costumes/outfits. It's kind of wacky :)
