I now have 32gb of space to play with on my PSP :D The read/write speed of the Photofast Pro Duo adapter with Transcend SDHC cards inside is pretty crazy, I'd say nearly twice the speed of my 4gb Sony MagicGate Pro Duo. Highly recommend it.

Dead Nation, playing on Grim setting and it's pretty tough but a lot of fun! Gonna have to start putting some thought into my strategy, running around like a lunatic charging at 20 zombies in one go is not working out! :D

So far I've completed the first three levels and have been enjoying playing it.
Metal Arms is a great game. I played it loads at a friend's house years ago and I've only just picked up a copy on the PS2 for myself. Must get around to playing it sometime.
I also finally played Metal Arms recently, really enjoyed it. I thought the graphics and difficulty were a little inconsistant but couldn't really fault it otherwise.

Found a disc copy of Bejeweled Blitz (a.k.a the Facebook version with the timer and therefore an actual challenge) in the supermarket the other day so have been playing quite a bit of that (it's highly addictive).

The only problem I have is that I installed it on my laptop and ten minutes into playing the game, my lappy crashes with the blue screen of 'serious error' before resetting. Happens every time with the game. It's not a problem because I can un-install it then use it on my 'main' PC but I'm still curious as to why it's happening...any takers? :lol:

Also playing a lot of Ray Tracers (PS1), Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (PS3) and Tekken Dark Resurrection (PSP).

I'm currently playing "Dude and Zombies", an oldschool-style zombie game by Kongregate.

I really enjoyed it.

I played it on Grim first and almost got stuck at the end of the Graveyard level. When I played it on Morbid (the next one up), I managed that slightly quicker (you get to keep your armour from the previous plays), but almost got stuck at the last chackpoint of the game.

I found the flamethrower (slowing down hoards of zombies) and shocker (easily kill lots of soldier zombies) to be very useful. The blade cannon is great for killing masses of them when it's upgraded a bit.

Replaying Wind Waker. I still don't get why people hate the sailing so much. So relaxing....

I loved sailing around in that game, it was so much fun exploring all the little islands. It gave the game a real sense of journey, in a away that even OoT didn't achieve.
Chazz it up!!!

I loved the sailing too, especially when I got randomly attacked by some huge octopus type monster, it turned into a lovely little battle. I had another go at it recently but it had been so long since the last play I had absolutely no idea where to go/what to do. I started outside a dungeon entrance but couldn't work out how to get in. I tried everything. So moved on and got no clues from elsewhere as to what to do. I gave up eventually :( .

Next time I play it, ill probably start from scratch. Unless someone on here can bail me out of trouble...

Been playing some great games, first up Alice Madness Returns 360, difficulty has well and truly spiked on this, the combat is getting pretty intense, bastard teapots.... though it's a great game, gorgeous looking too. Also been working on Forza 3 getting my driver level up again, now at about lvl 14, things are more interesting now I'm driving some of the more powerful RWD cars.

A lot of my time has been spent messing about with the PSP too, :D I've been trying out loads of obscure PS1 games, the Macross games, Star Ixiom, Starblade Alpha, Kings Field 1-3 and course playing Soukyugurentai (even though it is the inferior PS1 version) on the go is pure WIN. Also really impressed with Gran Turismo, lot of reviews slated the game for having no career mode but there's a ton of content regardless, loads of cars to colect (gotta catch 'em all), lot's of challenges, and the most important thing is the actual racing is spot on, plus the replays are genuinly a joy to watch (something Forza needs to work on).

I learned a long time ago never to start playing an RPG in the middle of the save file after a long break :) Which dungeon was it? What was stopping you from getting in?

I still to this day call this Zelda: The Wind WALKER. It just sounds right. Waker just doesn't compute in my brain cells. :lol:

Played some more Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, using Guile for the first time in any SF game. Considering I'm usually crap with charge characters, I played quite well with him. Also beat the arcade mode without continuing as Cammy. Not a massive achievement but I always tend to lose against at least one opponent (usually cheap-ass Seth).

Same here. Every time I read it in RG I read it as Walker, then have to correct myself and say the totally daft sounding Waker.
