Had a couple of games of FIFA 11 against my mate online. Wish I hadn't. It's even more broken than last year. Offline is fine, online....yeah, won't be touching that again!

Been playing 3 PSP games over the last few days

Gotlieb Pinball Classics. I really quite like this seems like a nicely put together compilation.
Metal Slug XX. Its a reworked version of Metal Slug 7 on the DS (think MS 2 and MS X). IMO no bad thing, MS is one of my fave franchises and OK its not a patch on earlier games but I still really like this, plus I bet its one of those games that becomes a headache to locate due to being released in pitiful numbers so couldn't pass this by even though I don't usually spend a tenner on a UK release PSP game.
Pipe Mania. Haven't read any reviews of this so didn't know what to expect but this is fab, I really liked it back when I had a ST and the PSP version captures the feel Ive found it to be really addictive too, a real sleeper, for me anyway.

Qualified pole for Shanghai in F1 2010 but a collision near the end of the session (not caused by me) meant I was dropped 5 places on the grid...not happy :x

It's a really addictive game and so intense when you just can't let your attention lapse for even a micro second.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

FIFA 11. Created my first team.......wait for it............called ZX Heroes, which includes Monty Mole (who I had to make short) and Joe Musashi from Shinobi :D, and I beat Arsenal with them 1-0! I even named their stadium 128K Stadium as well.

Finally reached level 70 and unlocked the Prestige Mode during online Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360). These new maps was great as I didn't realised how big it was, especially when it comes to Fuel and Carnival. Plus it's good to play on the old COD4 maps again and noticed some changes within the colour scheme.

Finally decided to start playing Gears Of War, despite it being a pretty old game. Selected the 2nd ('Hardcore') difficulty level, it's punishing me already but it's also making me really like it!
