Check your total on the select screen, what percentage is it at? Each level has an alternate boss/exit which leads to an alternate stage. There are 3 girls to save (one if which is Maria, the second playable character).

Just finished No More Heroes on the Wii with the 'proper' ending, which is possibly the most bizarelly hilarious thing I've witnessed since finishing God Hand on the PS2.

As somebody on here once said (I think it was gmintyfresh), that whole game is madder than a box of frogs, but still easily one of the best games I've played through in recent months.

Just finished 'Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30' and 'Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood' on the PS2.

I can finally start 'Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway' now on PS3...

I finally completed Half-Life 2! I got the Xbox version years ago and never got further than Ravenholm. But I picked up a cheap, used copy of the Orange Box for 360 on Monday and just tore through it. Not sure what put me off before, it was probably something to do with never having finished HL1 so not knowing WTF was going on. Glad I finally made the effort though, the penultimate level is especially cool (and Prey blatantly copied bits of it).
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

I too have completed the Doritos game, I've only got the online acheivement to get because I couldn't figure out how to get it online last night.

It was kinda fun, but that was probably the very short length (10 mins to completion) stopping it from becoming too tedious.

I completed Rock Band AC/DC live on my first playthrough. I got 7 out of 12 achievements, so I'll eventually get back to get a few more.
I like it, but they could have released the songs as DLC rather than as a new game (you don't need Rock Band to play though). There are 18 songs, nothing more (you can't play as Angus Young, there's no bonus video of the band, no Gibson SG for your character...).

I completed Rez last night on XBLA.

A wonderful game and I loved every minute of it, I'll be going back to night to try and beat the score attacks!

Yep just about, the story is great as are the horror aspects. But the overly high difficulty level and rubbish team characters AI our will have you tearing your hair out in frustration - if you register the game on the codemasters site you'll get a free cheat download, use it for improved weapon power. It's a shame as the game could have been amazing.
