Baby crying in pram fight Ninja girls.. Did the Anarchy missions more generic thugs but you press A by a bomb to defuse it.. Don't think you even fight Anarchy in the Court House as Batman walks away from him as "He's just a kid"

You don't even fight Black Mask, Firefly or Deadshot, and 'Black Mask' he's supposed to be the main villain.. Unless Deadshots not an Assassin and some other side mission like Mad Hatter? Mad Hatters side mission was fun

Worst thing was the main thugs voice acting "It's the Bat" in a Brooklyn accent followed by "He's just a little man" I found the voice/saying annoying the first time I heard it, even more so hearing it every other fight!
I had this for two days. Got about 5% into it, and got really bored of it. Boring fights, swinging around the same map as City, just a rehash, and a lazy one at that, of Arkham City. Traded it in, and am glad i did.

Played Terminator Salvation last night with my nephew, and completed it in just under 4 hours. Ho-hum, really.

Glad it wasn't just me who found it awful.. Luckily a friend lent me it, normally he would have said "You don't like nothing" when I returned it he did agree its boring just the same fight over and over

Really enjoyed Arkham City but glad I haven't bothered with Origins - from everything I've read it seems like a downgrade and their statement that they won't bother to patch the remaingin bugs but instead make more DLC is the final nail in that coffin.

Terminator Salvation was painfully generic and insultingly short as well. You would have thought by now we'd have one good console game from the Franchise. Just one.........

There was: The Terminator Mega Cd :D took everything about the mega drive original, and improved it 100%.

Started A Boy and his Blob on the Wii a few days ago after 6 years of owning my copy and not opening it :oops: . Seems alright so far. Not as charmed as I expected to be but it's a nice game. My only complaint is that it's sometimes easy to miss a treasure chest in a level and not be able to go backwards to collect it because of the way the levels are constructed but it's a minor niggle since the levels are quite short so replaying isn't too much of a chore.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Rain on PS3, has a sort of Ico vibe to it and like what I have seen so far.

Lego : The Movie. Been quite enjoying some Co-op with my son but also enjoyed most of the single player too. Though I think they could have included a sandbox lego builder tool for custom inventions and builds. Would love to build a virtual vehicle and drive / fly it around. The master builder concept is great but limited. Probably my favourite game in the Lego franchise and a perfectly silly afternoon film too.

Titanfall on the Xboxone. Excellent, refreshing FPS....apart from the awful slowdown at times.
Still ploughing through Dreamcast 2D fighters. I've decided that I far more enjoy King of Fighters than any Capcom fighter. Saying that, have now clocked up 20 hours playtime on Marvel vs Capcom 2.
