It's kind of 5 with a bit of 3 thrown in. TF Remix.

Gemini Wing on the amiga. It's got some great music in it and the game is ok.

Playing Terranigma still. Chipping away to catch up where I got to the PSP. Stuck on an annoying boss now.

I'm playing Legend of Zelda (the re-released GBA version) for the first time ever. No idea what I'm doing, just blundering around. But I like it!

I've never been much of a shoot-em-up fan but I bought Armalyte Competition Edition a while ago so I've decided to give that a go. Bloody brilliant, it is!

SimTower for Windoze. I'm not that impressed, to be honest: the graphics have aged an awful lot and it feels incredibly limited compared to more modern "save money and built it up" games like Tropico. I loves Tropico, and not just because I picked up the Gold edition for less than the price of a pint at my local Oxfam Music.
