Little Big Planet Kart racing. It's OK I guess but nothing special. Quite enjoying the PSN game 'When Vikings Attack', bit like a primitive PowerStone or something.

Lollipop Chainsaw.

Not quite as cringe-inducing as I'd feared, as it's more late 80's early 90's "valley" movie/TV show taken to the extreme rather than soft porn. The combat seems pretty good too - like the Force Unleashed I reckon it will be possible to complete merely by mashing buttons, but the game reward players for taking the time to learn the combos.
Suppose you were an idiot; suppose also that you were an XBox One owner. But I repeat myself.

Got Blur for PC for 6€ and I'm re-playing it for the third time. What an amazingly fun racer.

One of my favourite games of last year :) (I completed it countless times to unlock everything). Yeah, the combat is simple but later on in the game, a massive combo against a huge crowd of zombies is so satisfying when you can off about 20 in one go :D . On a side note, the Japanese guidebook I imported for the game has some nice pictures indeed :wink:

Myself, I've nearly beaten Persona 3 Portable. Again, like in the PS2 version of P3 and the FES edition, my persona compendium will be frustratingly close to completion but ultimately not 100% since I'm not going to manage to max out every social link...again. I could have followed one of the strict 100% guides online but again, I chose not to because playing through in a very rigid and specific way is no fun.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

My X and Y Wii U GamePad buttons are getting a good workout on Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. As challenging and as brutal as it is, I'm not really enjoying it much.

Payday: The Heist, very good 'homage' to the bank robbery scene in the awesome Point Break.

Playing bits of Ace Combat Zero and plenty of Secret of Mana 2 at the moment. Mana 2 is utterly utterly sublime with 32bit quality visuals, deep combat and stunning music.

Anyone know of a good UK site/guy who makes good reproductions for the likes of snes/megadrive?

If that's the same Vanquish as on '360 I quite liked it. Simple, no thrills run 'n' gun.
