Sonic, after getting the latest issue today.

Was never a huge fan, and playing again today has not changed my mind.

Had a nice time playing Streets of Rage 2 on my Blaze megadrive handheld tonight.

Played a very short game of Sonic & Knuckles as well and then switched it off as I just wasnt in the mood for its skittish stupid gameplay.

Yes I have a hangover - I went to see Kings of Leon last night :evil:

Still playing through Duke Nukem - Zero Hour on the N64....great game!

Going to play a bit of Road Rash 2 on Megadrive later as I haven't played that for a while, and I also feel like I should give Zombies another go on the SNES....going to try and complete it again, but the easiest way to do that is by starting at the very start so I can get enough Bazookas and First Aid Kits to survive the later levels. And it'll take ages!!

Zelda Oracle of Seasons.

I am loving it so much, easily as good as Ages and the passwords used to link the games is a great idea. Both games are so different in terms of locale so they both feel fresh.

Sonic Chaos - bonus stages make it far too easy, you can get 8 or 9 extra lives after almost every level!
