Sega definitely missed a trick by not officially endorsing this and working with the team to get it 'properly' released on PSN, XBLA etc. It's probably miles better than any 3D 'revival' they would dream up themselves.

The only bit I'm struggling on losing lots of lives are the jet ski bits...anybody got any tips to clear them easily? Also hating the train stage where you have to jump over obstacles because I'm just not fast enough at it. Otherwise, a fantastic tribute to a fantastic series :)
This,This a million times this. A great game that deserves public attention on PSN etc. The amalgamation of all the characters and branching storyline bringing together the best bits of all games and made by people with an obvious love and knowledge of the source material. Wouldnt take much to polish it a little and get it out there. Easily one of the best scrolling beat em ups ever - just dont like playing it on my pc , would prefer a consolized version.
Still haven't beaten it yet. I can get up to the start of stage 6 but this is much harder than the original games in my opinion thanks to many instances of the screen being swamped with high-power enemies. It isn't putting me off because it's still SoR but I want to unlock the shop mode.

I'm quite lucky playing it on my PC because I have a USB Saturn pad with a long cord so I can sit well back from the screen and play like a console game.
I play this with a USB Saturn pad too. I have completed it though :P

Currently playing Fable 3 on the PC, haven't played it since it was released back when I had it on the Xbox so jumped at the chance when it was on sale on steam a few weeks back.
I'm also about to start a complete playthrough of the Mass Effect series, haven't played them all in a while plus I have 3 coming in the post for the PC so as good a time as any to start a new character.

I have a reasonable pc gamepad - just would rather play on bigscreen - suppose I could HDMI the pc to tv. Just CBA with all that.

Legend of Zelda. Even with save states on the 3DS, this game is a son of a censored.

Ps3 dlc is "close" apparently. Close to what I'm not sure, finished, working, game breaking, insanity....

Well, it seems reasonable to assume that it'll do all of those things because Sony told us...

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - Really in two minds about this. On the one hand all the extra touches like additional encounters and being able to play as Ayane are great. On the other, I really do miss the 360 version's gore. It just doesn't feel right without it! :(

Weirdly enough for the upcoming Vita release they seem to be mashing the two versions together as it'll have all the extra's of the PS3 version along with gore etc. from the 360 version. I quite liked the fact that the PS3 version didn't feel so damn right unfair as the 360 version at times but they went a little too far the other way and made it a tad too easy on the default difficulty in my opinion.

Beat the Grim Reaper/Death in Castlevania Circle of the Moon so there shouldn't be much further left to go. Death was surprisingly easy compared to the Dragon Zombies (killed him in two attempts) which was a nice surprise as I was expecting far worse. Using a combo of axes and the flame sword did the trick nicely.

Really into my Castlevania now and have just pulled the trigger (on ebay) for one of the best in the series as I've been dying to play it :)
