I'll be playing Assassin's Creed as I'm currently half way with the story mode. Might resume back to online Call of Duty: Black Ops or Modern Warfare 2 to level up a bit more as I still on first prestige. Could also go back to Call of Duty 4 as it's been a while that I haven't revisit those multiplayer maps.

Haven't use emulation for ages too. Very impress with the PC Engine thanks to its arcade conversion of Afterburner II, R-Type, Raiden and Space Harrier. Will give it a blast.

Stopping at the gf's place, so it'll probably just be Morrowind on PC (which I finally started *properly* last weekend) and maybe a few games on Acorn Electron Repton, I downloaded an Elk emulator a bit back and I think it still plays great 23 years after last playing it.

I know I've got Darksiders for Xmas from my bro, but I won't be at my place over Xmas so no access to the 360.

I'd planned on playing either Snowboard Kids 2 or 1080 Snowboarding but haven't got round to it.

Was playing Christmas NiGHTS last night with a blizzard outside, feeling very festive. I was surprised at how good the game looked - really vivid colours and fast with minimal pop-up. Guess I'd fallen for the whole 'Saturn can't do 3D' arguement. Might have another blast on it tonight if I have time.

Just had a quick go on Cave Story off of WiiWare...must be reading the Wii's internal clock because the little guy appeared on screen in a Santa suit. Nice little unexpected Xmas gaming bonus. :)

I broke my ankle falling over on some ice a couple of days ago, so I'm sofa ridden. Gonna convince my sis to get the PS3 in here, then going to enjoy some cheap downloads! Merry Christmas Retro Gamer :D

Well, I haven't had a chance to play through Sonic 3 yet, my brother got force Unleashed 2 and I failed to factor that into my calculations. And I got it for him.
It's called a MEGADRIVE
