Four PSP games I'd like to buy and play in 2014

Following up yesterday's post about the four retro games I'd like to buy and play in 2014, here are a quartet of PSP games I'd like to pick up--and, yes, put through their paces--sometime in the next 12 months.

7th Dragon 2020--Actually, I can't decide if I should start with the first of Sega's 7th Dragon 2020 games or skip right to the second one. Either way, I desperately want to play some iteration of this 7th Dragon spin-off series sometime soon, despite the fact that I likely won't be able to understand a word of what's going on while I do it.

Criminal Girls--Is it strange that a gay guy (me, of course) wants to play a game that's all about--or at least partially about--spanking and otherwise abusing girls as they traverse a treacherous tower, RPG-style? I suppose. Still, I'd like to give it a go, mainly because of its art style and gameplay. (I've always been a sucker for a good--or even bad--dungeon-crawler.)

MonHun Nikki: Poka Poka Airu Mura--This game is often described as "Monster Hunter meets Animal Crossing." I'm not completely sure what that means, to tell you the truth, but since I absolutely adore the Animal Crossing series and I've always liked the airu/felyne character, surely I'll enjoy playing a game that somehow combines the two, don't you think?

Yuusha 30 Second--So, the truth is I've only spent a short time with this title's predecessor, which was given a new name--Half-Minute Hero--when it made its way to North America. It was a long enough stint for me to know I'll enjoy the full game, though, and likely have a similarly great time with its Japan-only sequel, too. Should I actually buy a copy in 2014, I mean.

Other possibilities: Final Fantasy Type-0K-On! Houkago Live!!, Nayuta No Kiseki and Sweet Fuse: At Your Side

Half-Minute Hero is my all time favorite PSP game! I wish they would have brought over the 2nd one! =[ It got a PC Port so I assumed it did relatively well! I'll have to try and nab a Japanese copy one of these days! Also, I've always loved the 7th Dragon art and have wanted to play it too! ^^

Ah, I guess this means I really have to get back to Half-Minute Hero soon--and give it a thorough looking over :)

It's sad they didn't bring over the second one, isn't it? I guess the first one just didn't do as well as people thought it may have done :(

I'd play all of these. I may actually have 7th Dragon... can't remember if I picked that one up. Which is a really bad sign for my game backlog :(

Sounds kind of like we're two peas in a pod, Zigfried. My backlog is horrendous, too :|
