Currently playing:

Fahrenheit (PS2) - Very interesting, but the plot can get confusing, especially when important story segments are being told as you have to concentrate on completing a \"Simon\"-like puzzle in the foreground. Probably a good game to watch someone else play.

Ordered Okami the other day too, so that should turn up soon.

Have you got past the bit where you play Lucas as a child and have to sneak into the Army base? I'm stuck there at the moment.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

I have. It's quite tricky and made tougher thanks to some awful colour choices on the minimap.

Hint (if you need it):
Climb the fence to the south, then avoid the patrolling soldier's sight (this can be irritatingly picky) by sticking to the fence. Wait for the guards opposite to be walking away from you, cross the road and there is a hole in the fence to crawl through. After that, you have to wait for the truck to drive by, and you run up to it and run alongside past the next guard. Then, let it drive past and duck between the hangars and head for the hatchway in the corner.

I found that a litle annoying too, but got it eventually. I got stuck and gave up at the rooftop fight/escape, where (basically) you needed to pound the trigger buttons really fast or you died. You didn't get enought time to get up to full speed and having to play through the preceding section again and again eventually got too much for me.

It got traded in, unfinished. A shame really because there was some interesting stuff in there.

I've been playing Dragon Force on the SSF emulator.

It's one of my favourite games on the Saturn, and works well on SSF meaning I don't have to find room for the Saturn under the TV.

It's a shame my thread on it got lost in the madness on Sunday.

Don't get to play so much now I'm old and married with kids!

Nevertheless, have been playing a bit of Final Fight for the Retro Survival Gaming League this week, Bounty Bob Strikes Back on C64 for the same league last week.

Managed to finish off Fahrenheit late last night. Great game, but the plot goes mental near the end and it's frustratingly hard to follow due to some crazy fights which intersect the story. It's a good job that the general gameplay has so many branching possibilities, so playing through again to try to understand the plot shouldn't be too much of a chore.

I also picked up some Megadrive games today, along with PS1 Resident Evil. I'll give them all a play to check that they're running, but Okami will be my next challenge when it arrives (hopefully tomorrow).

Oblivion on the 360 has pretty much dominated my gaming life recently. I've also been playing Tekken: Dark Resurrection & Advance Wars DS a fair bit. As soon as my copy of Mega Drive Collection turns up (useless Royal Mail, it's been two weeks now) I can see myself spending a fair bit of time on that.
