Back on Mario Kart Wii, a bit of online Pro Evo, and for my sins, NFS Most Wanted - making my way up the blacklist is pretty compulsive to be fair. Still annoying crashing into something you can't see til it's too late though.

Still getting my head around the controls and menus on Dragon Age Origins....but i'm already getting sucked into it, and i've only just got my Mage robes. I can see this eating up great swathes of my gametime this year! :D

Top 5 PS2...

Yakuza 2
Persona 3 FES
GTA San Andreas
Odin Sphere
Valkyrie Profile 2


I've still got lots of big RPG's on the PS2 that I haven't started yet so that list could change but it would have to be a seriously impressive game to knock one of those five off the list.
I have 3 of those and only completed P3 out of them. Got 5 chapters into Y2 but got bored, not of the game but just completed the original so should have left it a bit.

I started playing VP2 again earlier this week, picking up from Chapter 3 and right now I'm STILL on chapter 3! :(

Maybe I should get offline and go to work on it now? Nahhhh...

Yakuza 2 is great stuff. I'm working on it semi-simultaneously with VP 2. Only Yakuza in english release so far that's uncut!

Also, I have ALL of those games Megamixer listed. I have completed only 1 of them. :lol:

Also, I fired up Astro Boy Omega Factor for a "quick" 2-3 hour 1st-run playthrough. Some people online say this game is easy, but I don't know. I'm playing on Normal and I've probably died about 25+ times already. If it weren't for the unlimited stage continues, I'm sure people would be singing a different tune. I'm currently stuck on Pluto.

Instead of having games stack up on my 'to play' pile. I've decided to try having a few games on the go at one time.

So at the minute I am dipping in and out of;

Toy Story 3
Forza 3
Mass Effect 2 (loving this)
Dead Rising 2
Far Cry 2
SSFIV

All on the 360 plus, Sly Collection on the PS3.

Dead Rising. Im not impressed by the 'beating the clock' aspect of it. I thought it was going to be more like Undead Nightmare. Theres always one whinger :roll: :lol:

I gave up in frustration with this game's absolutely microscopic text! What the hell were the devs thinking when they put that in?

Command and COnquer the Covert Ops on my laptop - after all these years it's addictive, even if I am instinctively double clicking a unit to select all of that type or expecting all the units to have different voices. Seriously hard game as well, some missions feel impossible without exploiting flaws in the A.I

Also playing Metroid Prime

Outrun 2 - Either i'm just rubbish or this game is hard. Very frustrating when you run out of time like a second away from a checkpoint :@ that said, i'm hooked!
