Trine 2 on 360. Quite a nice game. Nice atmosphere. It's currently half price at 600pts for Gold members.
I'm thinking of picking up the X-Men arcade port since that's down to 400pts in the same sale. Does anybody have this? I'd expect the online multiplayer to be dead by now but if there's a few on here who have it and fancy a session I might pick it up.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Reached 50 stars on Mario Galaxy 2, loving it so far.

I've been playing Soul Calibur on XBLA, it's a brilliant game!

Also been spending serious time with Afterburner Climax, insanely addictive (and difficult...) stuff!

Rondo of Blood is fantastic. Contrary to most opinion i actually like the 3D graphics too. The fact the original game and Symphony of the Night is bundled in is a massive bonus aswell thats worth buying it for alone!
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

I do have to disagree here though, Rondo is terrible a clearly a product of it's time. The control is so limited and the way Richter moves is at times completely backward.

Already pre-ordered this :D

Way to hard the Original Rondo, just beat the level which is just a big boss fight against Medusa, Frankenstains Monster and Shaft... Dread to think how hard this will be on the PC Engine Version

Haunting Ground on PS2

great atmosphere, interesting dynamic between the girl and her dog but the constant running away and hiding breaks up the exploring way too much, a decent to good game but could have been great

That boss pissed me off as well, had me wishing for a better evade/block mechanic as I couldn't jump in on him because he used the same tactics as in SSFIV AE which was both entertaining and annoying at the same time :lol: The second lost episode is even cooler and crazier (especially the ending). I really liked all the DLC that this game got, all of it was great fun and pretty well priced as well.
Its the final mad key presses that are causing me problems at the moment, can't wait for EP2 mate

Mario Kart 7 - this is a great game, but I can't help but wish it had some more "circuits-based" tracks. Some of the levels are a bit nuts, which is fine, but a few more raceways would be cool as they lend themselves very well for time trialling.

The graphics are perfect, the online is excellent and the controls are spot-on. Probably my favourite in the series since the 64 version. Its still not as good as the mighty Diddy Kong Racing! :D I spent a silly amount of hours on that game, especially in its time trial. Its levels were perfect time trial foddy and then some. Surprisingly deep gameplay for a kart racer too.
