Spooky wrote:I've tried Castlevania on PS2 (the first one, don't know whether it's Lament of Innocence or Curse of Darkness), looks quite good! In my opinion, it's a lot similar to Devil May Cry (probably closer to the first episode).
Lament of Innosence is the first one. I found it quite a fun game to play through, quite repetitive in places but was a decent stab at a 3D castlevania. And your right, it does have a strong sense of Devil May Cry about it.

Been playing the excellent Dragon Breed recently:

It's by Irem, so if you like R-Type games, give this one a go. My favourite touch has to be the nifty little feature where you can stop and get off your dragon to pick up power-ups.

Also still playing Supreme Commander, but moved onto Forged Alliance now as it's much, much better than the original. The main fix is the pathing is tons better, which actually made me stop playing the first one because it was so frustrating.

Image

And, not totally game related, but I'm sticking to my guns and still creating stuff with LSDJ. I picked up my DMG last night at about 10:30 to work on a song, ended up losing track of time, looked up and it was 1AM :| Hence, I'm half falling asleep at work right now due to having to wake up just after 6.

(No that's not from my song, just a random LSDJ image ;))

My time is being consumed with Super Smash Bros Brawl. With so much to do and unlock its unlikely I'll finish it any time soon. Best game on the Wii as well!

I was playing Sam and Max episode 4 but Im stuck. Ive got lincoln with cue cards and Ive submitted his flyer to sybil. She is waiting for him to call her but I always get from him 'Im for familiy values, Ive been married for 150 years' which is annoying.
Any pointers before I give up and move on to something else

Use the bug on Lincoln to record him, then use it on the phone in the office to call Sybil.

Then it's a matter of choosing the right answers.
