Actua Golf on the Saturn! :?

It's acctually a quality golf game, and I have managed to solve allot of the juddery slowdown by going into the sound options and disabling sound.

With the background sounds off and no effects or commentary (all played direct from disc) the game's speed becomes quite acceptable lol

My Wii Zapper with Link's Crossbow Training has just been delivered, so I'll be playing that I guess!

Amazon have them in stock again, if anyone is interested.

Mortal Kombat : Shaolin Monks

I had no idea this game as so much fun, a really enoyable side scrolling type 3d beat em up with move levelling and a really nice combat system.

Also... I don't know how to say this I mean it's a Mortal Kombat spin off and it's... well... polished?! :shock:

I've been playing more Smash Bros Brawl unlocking character trophies for Classic and Allstar mode as well as finishing all the target mode challenges for each character.
I finally finished Megaman ZX Advent for the DS, it had a couple of little problems (the final level can be a pain to replay if you get a game over as you have to do all 8 boss fights again) but all in all it was an excellent game and was much better than ZX. It also has a great bonus mode once the main game is completed which is a retro 8 bit Megaman game which looks and plays just like the old Nes games!

Fired up some Civ IV on PC last night, not much to say other than it's a top game. I was in woolies today and noticed a new Sim City game I've never seen before, forget what it's called now but it looked cool, must try it out sometime!

Probably Sim Ciy Societies. Supposed to be very good if you can adjust to the way it plays - apparently it's quite different to a regular Sim City.

That's the one cheers! I'm a big Sim City fan, I've been playing them since the first one came out on Amiga and I adore SC4 on PC. Could be a good thing that it plays differently I suppose.

Grid - PC with microsoft steering wheel & pedals - It is beyond amazing and enters the world of `fooking stunning` - handles like silky smooth silk on a geishas smooth back that has been smeared in some form of lubricant.

Must say, I've seen GRID running on a top spec PC over at youtube and it really does look incredible.

As for me today, I decided with all this talk of Xbox original games to play the original Outrun 2. Certainly for me, Sega's best effort since the death of the DC. The gameplay is God-like.

Picked up GTAIV again and am continuing on to finish...got about halfway through and then got distracted.

Also just started Lost (360), needed an adventure fix and the 360 is sadly lacking in that department.
