Battlefield 1943 - 360 .....bargain and a joy to play (if you ignore the crippling lag and machine resetting bugs)

Battlefield 1943 - as said, great game, shame about the machine restarts and lag. Got a lot better tonight though, not a single restart and no lag.

COD 4 - 360 - feels like it's been ages since I properly played this online. Did quite well, came first twice in a row on Hardcore headquarters and forgot how good the weapns feel on the 360 pad. Am aiming for the highest rank on last prestige now (think i'm on 4th prestige, may be less)

LittleBigPlanet - first game of it today. not bad actually, didn't think i'd like it but it was enjoyable. have a lot of PS3 games to get through now, but all look good so far.

Also did a new FM09 game - Portsmouth and Senegal, here we go!

Picked up Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire again. I caught all the pokemon years ago so half of the challenge is gone but trying to attain a monster high score is still as addictive as ever. Thank goodness you can save whenever you want and then return!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Kinda a mixed bag for me this week,

With the discussion of top down races I have gently gotten into Racing Gears on the GBA (emulated via PSP) and its a bit of a blast, also getting into Sword of Mana 2 on the SNES (emulated via XBox) and Sword of Mana on the GBA (emulated via the PSP)

some great gamage to be had there I can say...

Also revisted an old friend this week with FF7 Crisis Core, what a game!!!!!

This week I put the Soleil cartridge into my Mega Drive. Never played it before but its really good. Im currently on the beach level and the wind is proving to be extremely frustrating.

I'm hooked on Peggle, oh dear.

Also really enjoying Fable 2, didn't the first time when I had it but now it's all coming together and I'm really appreciating all the hard work that went into it.
