Condemned: Criminal Origins. It features one of the funniest moments I have ever been experienced in a game.

Thomas: Federal agent! Come out peacefully or I will use force!

Crackhead hiding around the corner: censored YOU!



Other than Condemned, I'm stupidly addicted to Bejeweled 2.

I quite liked World Heroes Jet :D Why do you think its crap?
I like 2D fighters with a good combo system and cool characters. Not a fat Ghengis Khan with jerky animation and 2 hit combo's and a Bruce Lee rip-off who says 'woooohooo' constantly. The first one was funny, they should really have stopped though. Incidently I used to own them all on MVS as they were like £5 each.
I don't like Jet either.

The first one is okay but it's the second one that I like the best. I can't explain why but I just think Jet is worse than WH2. The final boss (Zeus) is a nightmare - I've never beaten the overpowered git.

As I'm looking forward to the new Bionic Commando so much I decided to go back and playthrough the original NES version. Still a damn good game even today, love the swinging mechanic in it as well. Takes a little getting used to but after a while it becomes second nature.

Have you tried Bionic Commando: Rearmed on XBLA? It's a fantastic remake with really nice graphics, takes everything about the original game that was good, makes it even better and adds a cool 'Challenge' mode into the mix too. Well worth a look. :)

Yep, I've given it a try and will be replaying it again soon. Loved the way they faithfully recreated it while adding a few nice touches to it. I've also given a couple of the challenge mode levels a try and they are very... clever. I spent more time playing room 2 than I did the main game, and it gets harder!

I never finished it on the NES either. I completed Bionic Commando: Rearmed on XBLA, but still have less than half the achievements for it :shock: After completing it, you unlock a 'Super Hard' mode, as if it isn't hard enough already!! :lol:

Would you say its worth getting compared to some of the other RTS games around at the moment?

Just started Astro Boy: The Omega Factor for the GBA. Feels like part Megaman and part Gunstar Heroes. Really good fun so far though.

I'm currently playing COD WaW on the PC along with occasional bouts of GRID and Fallout 3.
My 360 lies dormant and unwanted, but I still have Gears 2 and a few EA sports games i've got to be getting on with.
My psp is in constant use at the moment, and tonight I shall be playing Endwar. I hope it's good...

I've also become addicted to Chaos (through WoS) again, a good 16 years since the last time I was thoroughly addicted.

After finally finishing Smash Bros Brawl I can now get back to clearing through my backlog of retro games starting with Panzer Dragoon Saga.
