Sqdef on my GP2X, I love a good tower defence game, although this one seems to be owning me at the moment.

I did complete the second chapter of the first Phoenix Wright game on DS last night. Very good game, surprisingly deep for a handhelder and with good humour too. Entertaining.

OK I've been playing a bit of Gears of War, why on earth didn't I buy this sooner?, it has much better gameplay than i was thinking. Not only that but it's the most incredible game I think I've ever laid eyes on, on my new Samsung series 6 TV the GFX are just insane in 1080p :shock:, although it's not natively (only around 3 360 games are) lol it almost looks as if it is. Pretty much incredible!

ESP Ra De and Gunbird 2 on MAME. Bloody amazing vertical shooters, both of them.

On a related note, does anyone know why the DC version of Gunbird 2 doesnt work with an RGB cable?

if you fancy playing co-op on insane let me know :wink: my housemate is seemingly the only other person brave enough for it but playing split screen for more than 15 minutes is too much for me!

Basically downloading demos from XBox live.

Going to get some points soon and definitely want Castle Crashers.

Downloaded Sensible World of Soccer, TMNT, SOR2, Doom, Golden Axe.

Anyone recommend any of these games or others worth downloading?

Yeah it's not as good. I personally feel it was rushed from disk 3 onwards, however the common opinion is that it gets good from disk 3 onwards lol. I actually love the slower pace and more detail of the first 2 disks. That reminded me of the first game and the incredible atmosphere it created. Disk 3, while having more action has less chacrater detail, is maybe too ambitious. The rooms start to look identical and a general feeling of repetition kicks in, and for me at least the game does drag towards the end

However it's a one of a kind game for sure, the first game in particular rates as one of my most beautiful gaming experiences.

Loftgroover: Mate, I'm having a hard time of it on casual lol. Will be some time before I'm even remotely ready for hardcore difficulties. Maybe I just suck. :P
