Multiplayer has me kind of worried...
I feel that the game is split half and half. One said of the community goes stealth and the other guns blazing.. The problem is when you match the 2 types up the experience is diversely different....

I'm probably going to pick up Unit 13. Really enjoyed the demo, and I like what I've seen so far.

As someone who never had a PSP, what would be some PSP games worth the money and memory card space for me to download? And to go along with that question, WHY are those games great?

Without knowing your personal gaming preferences, it's hard to say if you'll find the same games worthwhile as me, but I'd say:

- both God of War games (Ghost of Sparta and Chains of Olympus). They're really not that far off from the console versions -- not quite as big, obviously, but they come surprisingly close.

- Daxter, because it's a fun 3D platformer that will be vastly improved by having two thumbsticks

- Ys Seven, because it's a lengthy action RPG that doesn't feel padded or require tremendous amounts of grinding.

- The 3rd Birthday (it's a good action game with some neat mechanics where you get to jump from person to person while you try and defeat the bad guys), but I'm not sure how much of that recommendation is just from me being impressed by how much better it looks on the Vita screen compared to the PSP.

I've been eyeing the God of War games. Also heard good things about Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and Persona 3.

Also, someone invite me to the group message!
