Just started playing Final Fantasy IX (PS1 on PSP). I never really played it back in the day (completed VII and got bored with VIII on disc two). It certainly seems better than VIII (from memory of that game, at least).

Spent 4 hours downloading EVE online
10 mins creating a character
15 mins of tutorials
4 mins to uninstall it.

What a load of crap. Anyone know of a fun MMORPG to play?

Played a bit of a Lord or the Rings game on PS2
it felt shoddy and the attacks felt like they didnt connect even when they did. (also the disc is a mess surprised it works)
Played He-man on PS2
Wow it to felt shoddy with really rubbish collision direction.
I got killed by some trap a few times when it didnt even touch me

Lego Harry Potter on the 360. Glitchy and buggy as hell. Oddly enough the game is much more fun now I've completed the 24 levels and am just exploring to find the stuff you can't access on the first run through.

Urban Chaos and RE: Code Veronica on Dreamcast. I messed up on my first RE visit by being too trigger happy and being left with almost just the knife for the second disc. Restart methinks :lol:

At the moment all of my playtime is spread across three games - Global Agenda (PC), Red Dead Redemption (360) and Crackdown 2 (360).

Global Agenda is worth looking into if you're up for an MMOFPS, a lot of fun and no monthly subscription.

Crackdown 2 is also a great little game, particularly for collection whores like me who just need to find every last agility orb! Enhanced exponentially by co-op multiplayer by the way :)

Finished up Alan Wake over the weekend, top game. Not usually into my survival horrors and although this isn't strictly part of that genre I still preferred it over games like Silent Hill or Dead Space.

I would actually love to play the new DLC but I redeemed my code early and am still waiting for the email from MS, bit of a balls up on their part but not to worry. I'm supposed to be lending it out tomorrow so I doubt I'll get to play it now for a few weeks which kinda sucks.

Nope, all the ones I've tried are crap plus you have to pay to play (most) them.

Anyway, I bought into the hype of Starcraft 2, got my arse handed to me online 5 or 6 times, tried the challenges and got destroyed on the very first basic one, then played the campaign which is quite good, but not £35 good. Wish I could take it back, feel like I've wasted my money on something I'm never gonna play again :(

Just "discovered" Liero, the free DOS-based real-time Worms-esque game. Lots of fun that one, once you get the controls figured out. Some online play'd be nice, maybe that's what Liero Xtreme or whatever is?

Started playing Dante's Inferno on the 360 over the weekend. Not a bad game. Bought it ages ago but didn't really get into it. (Guess I'm in a bit of a 'dark' mood at the moment, so am enjoying it :twisted: ). Also playing BioShock every now and then.

Speaking of dark, I also tried the demo of Limbo - A pretty cool little platformer. Just love the lack of music, and the only sounds are from the environment. Will probably get the full version once I add some more MS points.

After pay day this week I'll treat myself and finally get Red Dead Redemption as well as Tiger Woods 11 (cheap off a mate who didn't like it) and possibly Naughty Bear.
