Lollipop Chainsaw for the 360. Cleared the bad ending. Its a great game, pretty short but the few stages are fairly long and varied plus I'm going for the good ending/achievements so I've still got plenty to do on the game. Overall I really enjoyed it, the combat is good once you acquire enough of Juliets moves to tear through groups of zombies with ease. The dialogue is consistantly great and nearly all of the boss battles are brilliantly designed and pretty original compared to others I've seen this generation.

I also completed Mutant Blobs Attack! for the Vita. Its a great mix of Loco Roco and Katamari and is really addictive while it lasts.

Finally....after about six weeks solid, i've completed Puzzle Quest on the PSP :D I still have a few side missions to do but Lord Bane has been defeated. I'll have a break as i can do those whenever i'm in the mood. It's been thoroughly entertaining and i've really enjoyed making up new weapons by collecting the runes. There's a multitude of possibilities.

I highly recommend it to anyone who has even a fleeting interest in 'match 3' type games, as it has more depth and strategic variety than i thought possible.

Having said that, i'm glad its done....i can have my life back now! :lol:

^^ Maybe I should have persevered with it, but I just have so many PSP games from the Game firesale a few months ago, and so little time to play it, that it's a harsh qualification :wink:

:lol: I know that feeling...i've still got a fair backlog myself. I'm going for a bit of Micro Machines pick up and play next, before i get my head around one of the Tactics games. Dunno whether to go for FF Tactics, LOTR Tactics, Tactics Ogre or R-Type Tactics.

Choices, choices :)

R-type is a nice little game - one i still go back to.does remind me of shining force , but my mind does work in simple ways.

I may well try that one first. I don't really fancy trying FF tactics yet, if its anything like the GBA game. I could do without losing another 300+hours :wink:

The joy of being able to just 'sleep' your psp. R-type is very much a fairly typical tactics type game but as a fan of the series it stood out a little more. Shame they didnt sneak in one of the arcade games as an unlockable.

Completed The Conduit on Wii yesterday and the quest mode on Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock the other day.

Really enjoyed playing The Conduit, not really a fan on FPS games but liked this one. WOR was also enjoyable with some good songs.

Sly Cooper on PS3, pretty enjoyable although quite short lived, 6 hours in total, granted I've still got a load to do for 100%, a little too easy too, the hardest part for me was a QTE boss fight... now onto #2

Have you played Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes oon the DS? One of the best games I have played on the console. It splices RPG, strategy and puzzle elements together perfectly. I haven't played Puzzle Quest much in the past, but I hear it sounds similar so I should give it a go now that you come to mention it.....
