Really liking the look of Grandia (PS1) at the moment - bit of a slow start gameplay/story wise so far but I'm looking forward to it picking up and encountering a few battles.

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

After a few months off, I'm back on a bit of Kane and Lynch 2 multiplayer.....I think this might be the most underrated nexgen game of all time

I'm back to playing Minotaur Rescue on the iPhone. Managed to beat my previous high score as well - I just managed to break the 5,000,000 barrier (only just). Lovely addictive game :mrgreen:

Gargoyle Quest 2 on the NES. I love this game, well worth a few replays

Still lost planet. I can only handle doing one mission at a time or I just get bored. Want the damn thing to be over soon!

My Astro Go! Go! game came today so I had a quick blast on it...and after about 15 minutes I actually felt a bit of motion sickness from all the colours and weird mode7 angle. I guess it's a game I can play a sick trick on some of my friends. Tee hee.

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain for the PS1. The very first in the LOK series.
Its pretty good, but i much prefer the puzzle solving/platform elements of the Soul Reaver games. Its quite hard to believe Soul Reaver followed this :P
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Its pretty damn good right :)
I love the dialogue in those games. Its has such good voiceover talent.

Soul Reaver 1 has better puzzles and boss battles though imo.

Yeah I loved it. Still looks fantastic too. Soul Reaver 1 I do have but I found it a little hard to get into due to the lack of direction. Legacy of Kain Defiance looks very good too.

Playing Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood on 360. It's great, keeps getting better the more I play, plus it's a sequel that feels totally upgraded from the original. I'm not really into the western thing, but this looks and plays so nice and has the benefit of superbly done cutscenes (the voice acting is truly great in this, the movie bits are extremely watchable and are nicely short and to the point). A very classy game.

I've been playing some Wizball (C64) and Switchblade II (Amiga), both very good games. Not really played Switchblade II before properly but I'm enjoying it.

Also Rallisport Challenge 2 and Half Life 2 (Xbox) are getting a lot of attention. Still playing a bit of GoldenEye Wii here and there too and started a new game on Pikmin, typical crazy Nintendo game :)

Switchblade II :mrgreen: Pretty much my favourite game ever, I can remember playing that game to death back in the day on my Amiga (and I still play it quite a bit now).
