Didn't know there was a U.S Gold version. The Capcom version is chuffing brilliant, such a fun game!

Gradius, Gradius, and more Gradius on my PSP - Absolutely loving the Gradius collection, possibly the best 8 quid I've ever spent.

It's tiding me over nicely until my MD copy of Thunder force 3 arrives.

It's the "North of England Northern Ireland Supporters' Club" logo :D

Oddly enough I've got the Zero Wing intro as my avatar on the Northern Ireland Supporters' forum.... maybe I'm just a bit mixed up.

I started playing the 'Zombie Mode' (Shi no Numa) on COD: WAW. It was quite tricky as I'm usually the lone wolf and have to survive thoughout the rounds by wiping out those zombies. Did unlocked an achievement during the game too.

Might give it another go to improve the endurance and it can be very challenging.

I've been enjoying my 360 recently. :)

Lot's of Geometry Wars 2, I'm crap at it but I'm enjoying trying to get the achievements. Struggling with "wash off" atm as it's pretty tough.

Perfect Dark Zero - I do like this game, intresting to see that it has some fantastic textures (same with Kameo) which put many games made today to shame. It's a great game in it's own right, the problem starts when you compare it to COD4 etc. It's different to the typical modern FPS games and should be viewed/played as such.

Riddick (Assault on Dark Athena) - Wow :shock: gorgeous, gorgeous game. Fantastic lighting, textures, gameplay, storyline, voice acting etc. This is gonna keep me happy for a while. It pushes 360 hard and it's a shame the PS3 version isn't as good.

Fable 2 - Replaying it again since I bought (and sold) it last year on release. First hour I'm not feeling it, very clumsy to play and I just couldn't settle into it. Another hour later I was loving it, weird. :D

I'm currently playing phantasy star 2 on the original mega drive. It's good fun but definitely helps to study the maps and the hint book. I'm also part the way through Sonic & Knuckles.

Forgot to mention that my brother lent me his copy of Guitar Hero 3 with guitar the other day. I wasn't expecting too much out of it tbh but have to say I'm very impressed with how it all works and feels. So so addictive that the "just one more song" syndrome kicked in on my first play and now have completed it on easy (I'm not so good) and am playing it through again on medium which I'm finding pretty hard if I'm honest. You see, I am a bit of a whammy bar wh0re and cannot leave it alone lol which usually makes me miss the notes. :D

Either way top game, even if rock music isn't your thing it doesn't matter, you will still really enjoy GH games! :)

Playing Resi 5 again in co-op with my other half, its more fun in 2 player but the split screen picture is reduced significantly so you need a pretty big tv.

Metroid Prime - GC
New Super Mario Bros. - DS

Also started playing Megaman 2 on NES. Quite hard, but IMO nowhere near as hard as NES Batman.
