Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. I got this for my dad and played it on his PSP to unlock Symphony of the Night. Bit of a stupid move for Konami to have SOTN as an unlockable when the game is all hyped up on the back of the game case. But I unlocked it for my dad to play. Interestingly, I think the remake of Dracula X is easier than the original. It took me DAYS to get to the forth stage on the original (which I'm still stuck on). In the remake I did it with no problems.

Finally got round to loading up Oblivion again after all these years. I'm finally going to complete the rest of the outstanding quests I have in the game before Skyrim is released.

Ok, ok... So I like Gears of War now. SUE ME! :lol:

I'm even playing the bits with "Cole Train" in without wincing. GoW2 is on order. :lol:

I thought GoW was fine untill te finial boss.

Not having a good time with my PS2 :( MGS2, Outrun 2006 and FSW:Twin Hammers have all been pretty crap. I've never liked MGS and Outrun felt obsolete afte the burnout games. Also the first FSW seems much better than the sequel.

I can just about 1CC Deathsmiles with Follet; it all goes pear shaped when it comes to Tyrannosatan.

Made use of my PS3 and stuck some Playstation stuff on, X2, which is a bit pants, Philosoma, which is alright but I think they were trying to do too much with it, there's flying up the screen sections, flying across the screen sections, sections where your ship fills a big chunk of the screen and flying into and out of the screen sections, I think if they just made it a vertical or horizontal shooter it would have been a lot better and lastly Ordyne, which as we all know is ace.

Finally got around to Dead Rising 2. Capcom have really lowered the difficulty. Compared to the first game this is a breeze.

Just played through the sonic series on the good old megadrive.

Unfortunately it peaked far too soon :(

Crackdown on 360. Good fun leaping round and was very cheap, but it has crashed on me twice now in a couple of hours play. Its lacking a bit in the story department too, there isn't much atmosphere to it.
