Front Mission

  • Deleted user 23 April 2010 12:50:55
    Hello All,

    I love Front Mission. I also love front bums. However, I will stay on the former subject for the time being.

    I know there are the two Front Mission games on DS, and I've only played the first one but I wasn't impressed at all.

    Now, Front Mission 3 for me is a great game. I wish I could play it portably, but I can't outright confirm it works on PSP and more importantly, I only have a DS. Can someone recommend a similar game in style and mechanics for me with works on our beloved dual screen system?

    With the sincerest of thanks,


    ps VAGINAS!

    pps Damn.

    Can't help you with the games unfortunately but i'm glad someone else thinks "Front bottom Mission" when they see the title :)

    I need psychological help, i'm sure of it.

    Pretty much anything makes me think of front bottoms, except when I am distracted by breasts, which is often.

    I also like Advance Wars (although this information is more for the question about games).

    I too love Front Mission 3. My fave PSX game in actual fact! (besides the FF games)

    Don't know about the PSP thing you're talking about though.

    PSP can play PS1 games from a disk image... i think.

    ^^ You can convert a PS1 disk into an "eboot" file which then can be played on the PSP. Some reading on custom firmware and PSX2PSP is required though. Not all games are 100% compatible and some require user input using a so-called "popstation" plugin. Again, this all is possible only on a customized PSP, unless the game is officially released via PSN.

    It works.....just. Emma's story is bugged, and crashes at a point roughly 6 hours in (during a route selection), but Alicia's is okay......

    ....bat the Leg 0hp bug, which crashes the game when a Wanzer's legs are destroyed.

    Still, it's worth the trouble. :)

    No idea about other suggestions, PSP or DS, as I'd have bought them already. :(

    Try Mytran Wars on the PSP- it's not too far off. There's a thread on it in 'the strategy games group' if that helps!

    Front Mission on the DS does lack the charm of Front Mission 3, it just doesn't feel as polished as it should. If they are going to port a SNES game, they could have tidied it up a bit or gone for a graphical style more suited to the DS.
