Steambot Chonicles for the PSP looks pretty sweet but can anybody tell me from experience that it's good? If so I'd totally be up for some robot on robot action.

It's pretty fun, but a complete pain to find.

@Emandudeguyperson: I am 2 hours or so in,Its pretty fun, The customization of your 'trot' is nifty, although its not super in depth thus far. The lack of lock on for the guns makes them pretty hard to use and they don't do much damage and have limited ammo.

I find the controls to be a bit tricky as well.

My other issue is that you have to park your trot at the cones to get out, thats fine I guess, but theres a LOT of backtracking while doing the jobs from the jobplace.
You accept the quest, walk across the town, talk to the person who posted the job, walk wayyy out into a forest to chop a tree, then walk all the way back to the dude, deliver it, then go back to the beareau to get your 300UR. 8 or 9 times to get enough money for new weapons and armor for your trot, and even more if you want to upgrade them. So thats kinda bleghhh!!!

On the good side, the voice acting is really good, I was very impressed. Also they give you 4-5 different options to choose from during dialogues, theres normal ones and some super super funny ones, I recommend trying those as they don't really change anything, just create some very Laugh out loud moments. Hearing the main character do his sleazy cool macho voice is the best! You will laugh hard haha
