Apart from an addiction to FIFA 2011 I am playing Lemmings alot on the game gear.

I have also recently worked my way through pushover on the Amiga and tried to record myself getting through all 20 levels on manic miner so I could post it on you tube. Harder than I remembered it.

I feel the GEP gun is almost essential since EMP grenades are pretty scarce at the start. You could use LAMs i suppose but i tend to attach them to doors and shoot them to blow them open if im feeling stingey on lockpicks.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

WipeOut HD Fury....... :shock: wow...

I haven't played a Wipeout game since the first one and I founds the controls to be utter toss, so I was a bit wary of this... turns out it's a fantastic game... and best of all... free :D

That's good to hear as I've just downloaded the game this morning, I think the last Wipeout game I played was on the PSP but I couldn't pass this one up since its free!

It was the game that made me buy a PS3 in the first place. I like to play it with the Wipeout 2097 soundtrack too :wink:

I should have said Wipeout HD, I've not tried any of Fury.... yet , but I'm guessing it's more of the same??

Currently playing Symphony of the Night on PSP. I had trouble getting into it on xbla, but it is perfectly suited to the PSP. Absolutely loving it. Also picked up Resident Evil 4 Wii edition earlier, can't wait to start that later!

I've been playing more Lord of Arcana. It's definitely a game I like more the longer I spend with it. The grinding can get annoying, but I'm starting to encounter some more interesting enemies now.

I still have no idea how I am going to beat Bahamut, though.

It's 8 more tracks, the ships have been redesigned and slight stat increases, there's a new race mode and new soundtrack.
