Been playing Resident Evil 5 to try and unlock all the bonus items. Done about 75%, need a break now.

Any suggestions?

You could always relax and take a walk around the Resi Evil 5 set on PlayStation Home, without being mauled by the infected!

Oh wait... on second thoughts... It probably wouldn't be that much different ;)

Giana Sisters DS. It's like the NEW New Super Mario Bros. we never had.

Die Hard Trilogy on the Saturn. The first game made me want to chew my fist off; the 2nd was alright once I plugged the Gun in, and the 3rd actually grew on me. Still, not the best game ever.

Also playing some of my many XBOX live arcade games: Lost Cities, Carcassone, Catan, Outrun. Some are giving me some major problems on this new 360 though: I don't think it likes the fact that i recovered my gamertag.

And i'm also playing, and enjoying more than most games, Guilty Gear Judgment on the PSP. Completely unlike the games I usually like, but it's really good fun.

Still trawling through the cutesy sprite-based world of Mana Khemia. Still very much enjoying it 40 hours in though the difficulty of the battles is increasing noticeably.

Also, I try to keep a beat em' up on the side for when I momentarily tire of RPG's. The current choice is Bloody Roar Primal Fury for Gamecube. Still looks pretty good graphically but the actual gameplay is a bit so-so. At least it features a tall, busty blonde who can transform into a giant killer bat so I guess all isn't lost :)

After much debate on what game I should start, I settled for Devil May Cry 4. Quite enjoyable so far, but sometimes really infuriating... :roll:

Silent hill homecoming - Its pretty good so far, the combat is even more clunky than usual and the gameplay is standard silent hill but its nice playing an old style survival horror again :) Five different endings so should be with this game for a while.

I played OutRun Online Arcade last night and it looked incredible in HD. Also been promoted as Brigadier General during online COD4 (PS3).

If you didn't enjoy Home to start off with it won't really be worth logging on and downloading the update... the update's basically just new areas (a Resident Evil set, a couple of Far Cry locations and a Red Bull Air Race area). It's nice to have a quick look around I suppose. The only other new thing I noticed was a mini game in the garden square area, where you control a model helicopter to pop some air balloons!

I started playing that again earlier this week - good fun as the combos are relatively easy to pull off (I always find them near impossible on street fighter/kof/guilty gear etc) and theres plenty of replayability with the different characters. How far into it are you?

Dino Crisis on Dreamcast, never played this when it came out and am just discovering how much it really is like resident evil. Brilliant :D

I started Mass Effect again and I've been playing a bit of Crazy Taxi on the DC.
