Just finished Chrono Trigger for the 1st time, as well as Earthbound. Both were freaking awesome, although I would almost have to say I liked Earthbound better. My main reason for finishing them now is the ability to play on the go (PSP). Just don't have 'tv time' like I used to.

Next up is either Dragon Quest/Warrior II or Final Fantasy IV...

Gonna play wave race all night until I beat it on expert - one of my favourite games of all time. Finally got a keyboard and mouse for my PS3 so I can check forum while playing the other consoles, sweet!

just dug out ghost squad (wii) i bought it not long after it came out but didn't play it affter the 1st time as i didn't have a zapper and its naff without it!

i have had the zapper ages now but had forgotten about gs...thought i'd give it a spin and am loving it...find it a little short though...i know you unlock more content as you go on but after playing it over 15 times in one night it gets a little tediouse!

i might have a go at super paper mario now as i only tried that once when i 1st got it but threw it to one side after the opening sequence went on for about 3 years! :(
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...

Don't give up! SPM does have a little to much text for its own good, even I began to get really annoyed at the seamingly endless dialogue but if you can look beyond that there is a great game waiting to be played!

Now that I've finished college, I've been able to get fully hooked on a number of titles. Whilst I wait patiently for my birthday to come along so I can go out and buy Spore with any dough I get, the game that I have been playing the most is WipeOut Pure on the PSP! Great game, although phantom class is a real b****!

I don't have a Wii, but my friend has this on his. IMO it's the best olympics game I've ever played since Summer Games on the C64!

Battlefield Bad Company (360) - playing the single player through again on hard and getting all the gold this time

Guitar Hero 3 (360) - raided easy trying medium now (it's like learning a new language using the extra button) seems generally easier on the 360 than the PS2 version?

Sitting in hospital for the past week I have quietly been getting addicted to Outrun 2006 on the PSP. I was inspired to get it after I read the Outrun article in Retro Gamer!

Just started COD4 for the PS3. Amazing stuff so far, I can see why it gets so much praise!
