This was another one that I played a long time ago but like with Killzone, time had not been kind to my memories. The sprites are okay but poorly animated, the characters in general are pretty dull and it just plays really blandly.

So yeah, both games getting sold :P
It has a guy called Ryuken

HE PLAYS NOTHING LIKE THEM!!
For that this game is not censored

As always plugging away on GT5, but I've just started Strangehold - there are a few minor control issues but generally it's a pretty blo0dy good action game!

Been spending more time playing Rayman Origins. It might be the best platformer I've played all year, the levels get better as you get further in the game. Difficulty is nicely pitched as well, not to hard to clear the levels but it takes some doing to collect all the medals/speed run trophies which can be pretty tough to get in some levels.

I've had that in my "to play" pile for ages, I really should get round to playing it soon!

I played all the way through PixelJunk SideScroller the other day, definitely one of the better games I've played this year.

Gauntlet on XBLA. Playing it back in the day, I absolutely loved it. Now, i just think it's ok. Mainly because the goblins, ghosts and all the others re-spawn too quickly, so you're just standing there shooting at them and not progressing anywhere. A bit boring, really.

I picked up Fear Effect at a charity shop earler. Never played it before so will be at that soon.

Stranglehold is one of those games I always wanted to buy but never got around to doing so. I got a great deal on the LE so I decided I'd waited too long and started on the game. It's nicely scripted.

Spent a couple more hours on Skyward Sword with my nearly 3yr old and 6yr old daughter, they seemed really into it! Just landed on 'the surface' so lots to do, good game so far, as I'm on strike tomorrow might give this a little more time, not getting paid so why not! :D

Sonic Generations (PS3) - only played the game a short while but I've been impressed with what I've seen of it so far. :D

Been messing around on Far Cry 2 this week. A good game, flawed by being a little repetitive sadly. i have opted for a laid back approach to gaming the next few wks. Lego Star Wars and Batman are on the agenda, whilst i contemplate giving my life over to Skyrim...

Borrowed The Orange Box (PS3) from a friend and yesterday started playing Portal. Never played Portal games before. It's been really fun and challenging experience so far. I like games with a bit of a challenge especially puzzle games. The female narration is quite charming and humorous too. I've read this is a very short game but based on the hour I'm into the game, I'm eagerly waiting to get to play the sequel.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on PS3. Love the Castlevania series, so I had high hopes for this game. Played a couple of levels and its pretty mediocre so far :( Just a basic hack n slash game. I know I'm only a couple of levels in but it doesn't really feel like a Castlevania game :?
Hope it bloody well gets better.
