Yeah it does seem to be really easy now you mention it but I don't think I'm anywhere near completing it yet so it may ramp up later.

Started playing Halo: Reach this morning. Just another Halo game is my opinion so far. I've never been able to get into the series - I think it's the annoying little 'Joe Pescis' that irritate me, running around muttering something all the time. That being said, I love the tech in the game - probably the reason the only Halo game I've been able to get behind to some degree was Halo Wars.

I've decided that this weekend I'll pull out the handful of 360 games I've bought over the past few months and either haven't had a chance to play at all, or much of. I think Fable II will be next on the list...

The Big Buck Hunter Pro / Big Buck Safari arcade machine at my local speak easy has also just been connected to the Internet, so have been putting some of my hard earned cash in that over the past week or so. Spending money on that does keep me off the beers... ;)

As for Minecraft, I only have it installed on my one Linux PC, so don't play it too often - mainly when I'm waiting for something else to happen on one of my other PCs. It's such a simple, but great little game. It seems an upgrade was released recently which lets you tame wolves ... yay!!!

Still levelling up with online Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PS3. Also resume back to some online Modern Warfare 2 for the Xbox 360 as I haven't play it for ages.

Rayman on the 3DS, finally spending a little time with my 3DS this morning and although it's not really anything special I've enjoyed playing a few levels of the game.

Played Darkstalkers 3 PS1 after finding a copy this week. Since it's been announced on PSN, I guess demand for it has lowered and that's why it's cheaper now.

It actually looks and plays quite well. Unless you had an arcade cabinet, you wouldn't be able to spot the inferiorities aside from the load screens. Animation wise, the worst part of the game is actually the character selection screen when it lurches up and shows all the characters for you to select. It's very choppy.

To be honest, I found the audio noticeably inferior in this version compared to the Saturn Vampire Saviour. It's definitely a good port gameplay-wise though which makes a change after playing some of the badly compromised Capcom Vs games on the PS1.

I've got the PAL and US versions of DS3 (I'm collecting every Darkstalkers release since I'm a huge fan) but I've yet to play the US versions and see if the 60Hz of the NTSC version makes any noticeable difference.

For a change I fired up the PS2 today for some shmup action, I really wish I had one of those rare PS2 Saturn controllers. I did try and hunt one down a few years ago but it was super difficult. Maybe it would be easier on a Japanese action site.

Raiden III and Ibara were the main games I played, I find Ibara far too hard to be really enjoyable I don't mind admitting but Raiden III on the other hand is so playable and addictive, nothing about it is particularly new or original but it just feels so good to play. It really makes me crave for Raiden IV on 360.

Are they really that rare? I have this one (not my pic) but it's a special edition Darkstalkers version so since it's all boxed up and in nice nick, I don't use it.

I was tempted to track down a standard version (if one exists) to actually use but if they're gonna be expensive then I won't bother.

I think all fighting games on Playstation CDs had pretty inferior audio. SFA 3 on the PS1 is noticeably tinnier than the Anthology version on PS2, and of course I mentioned the PS2 Marvel vs Capcom 2 CD a while back as being inferior audio-wise.
