lots of Battlefield Bad Company online...my house mate picked up Bourne Conspiracy, Tenchu Z and Project Gotham 4 all on the 360 today.

Bourne is decent so far...controls are a little iffy but I suppose I need to get used to them.

Been playing loads of battlefield too, It's really addictive - I generally start playing at 21:00 and I'm still on until 01:00. Not good on a work night!

That is one of my fav Dreamcast games - I was playing that recently, but it sure does give you some serious RSI.

I can type without having to look at the keyboard so I thought I'd be ok with it but it turns out I can't type that way under pressure :D

Tried to get a few games going on here before, definately be up for it.

Also completed the single player on Sunday funnily enough. Got to the last level several months ago but it started to bore me and online took priority. Have to say I was quite impressed with the ending. Won't drop any spoilers but it was an exciting finish. Am now going through on veteran. I think it may take me some time...

Just completed UT3 on the 360; 3 player Co-op. Only on Hard, because when we tried Insane we had our arses handed to us. Pretty good though, but I prefer the older UT's 'sport' approach.

Borrowed the Orange Box for the 360 off my brother. Started Half Life 2 last night - the first time I have played any Half Life game.
Enjoying it so far and I have loads more to play after this!

Battlefield: Bad Company (360) - Playing it through on hard now, and it bloody is! Multiplayer is still loads of fun

Virtua Fighter 5 (360) - Man I'd forgotten how complex this game is, very impressive though

KOF 2000 - DC

I've tried to give Duke Nukem: Time to Kill a proper play... but that game is bloody awful! I'm glad I didn't pay too much for it...

So instead, I tried Necronomicon (PS1 too) which I bought during my stay in London. I didn't know this game (although it was developed by a French team), and it looks quite good, especially since I'm a fan of H.P. Lovecraft.
