Just played the demo of Audiosuff.

You get 5 songs, so I chose an ecclectic mix to see how it handles the variety...

Kermit the Frog - Rainbow Connection
Grandmaster Flash - White Lines
Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now (theme from Rocky)
Daft Punk - Around the World
New Order - Vanishing Point

It handles them all well and makes for an enjoyable listening experience, but not sure I would call it a game. For a tenner I am sure it is a great way to listen to music when you are bored though.

Yeah I bought it on Steam, seems alright but not something I would spend a lot of time on. It also doesn't seem to support ID3 tags which is annoying because the filenames of my mp3s are in a poor state, whereas the ID3 tags are all fine.

I just got back to Resident Evil 4, specifically The Mercenaries minigame. I'm getting some great fun out of that since I finally unlocked everyone. :D

I finally got back to playing the Orange Box at the weekend, didn't realize episode 1 was so short, couldn't have lasted me more than 4 hours. Better than some 10 hour games I've played through though!
Also back to Musou Orochi which dispite being repetitive with its gameplay, I can't put the game down (roll on Dynasty Warriors 6)

Lastly I'm also trying to play Black Tiger on the Capcom Classics Collection. I'm stuck on Level 3, I've climbed up as high as I can go but the platform I'm trying to jump to is just out of reach. So, uh.. HELP?!

That's why they're called episodes ;)

Just finished going through Earth Defence Force 2017 on normal, if any 360 owner see's this going cheap I'd recommend picking it up, it's a lot of fun.

Just spent 4 hours on 1 game of Sins of a Solar Empire, and I was only playing 1 AI on a small galaxy! Wonder if it takes more or less time with extra opponents...

I've been playing a bit of N+ this evening. It's a really addictive little game with some cunning little puzzles, I advice anybody who has a 360 to download it from XBLA pronto!

Super Star Wars trilogy on SNES. Never really given the SNES much of my time. Always dismissed big N until GC, so am suprised at just how good the NES and SNES are (though not really a fan of N64).
