I also tried the online mode as many people here speak highly of it and I am hooked! The EXP system means that even people like me can achieve something out of a deathmatch (I'm pretty bad at it at the moment!). Add that the great challenges that let you unlock more stuff as you play and I have an online mode that looks to outlast the single player mode easily.
I haven't play COD4 (Xbox360) for quite a while after my 1 month free trial had expired. Luckily I reached Level 55 (Commander rank) and was given an option of playing the Prestige mode.

The online play is incredibly popular that I been playing the Domination mode during last month. Some suggested it's probably the best route of picking up twice amount of XPs as long you're on the winning team and completing challenges.
Thanks for the tips, I've managed to level up much faster and Domination multiplayer mode is a blast to play as well.

I'm currently playing Metal Slug 7 on the DS, It's a great game and it's certainly an improvment over 5 and 6 imo, will tide me over till i get my Pandora and play the first 6 over again!

I really like 5 and I especially like 6 (my second favourite), 4 is the one I have the problem with as it's awful

Yeah I also thought things improved with 5 onwards. Although I would never say they were as good as 3, including 7 on DS. But MS7 is pretty special regardless. 4 was pitiful.

I've finally got around to playing Super Mario RPG on the Wii virtual console (I tend to buy the odd game and then never get time to play it!) and also Phoenix Wright 2 on the DS. It's not my DS, it's my daughter's one which doesn't half annoy her when I hog it :-)

Not really had much time for games recently. I think the last thing I played was the technology preview of Yo Frankie (the new Open Source game) only to find that my video card isn't up to the job in my PC.

Well I'm not a big fan of RPGs, I tend to stay away from things like Final Fantasy (never really got into the original games on the NES/SNES). I'd say in a way it reminds me a bit of Paper Mario albeit with not as fancy graphics (still, it's not bad). I guess you could say it's a bit like what you'd get if you crossed Paper Mario and Super Mario World.

I'm certainly getting into it anyway, it's quite a good game, especially for someone like me who isn't traditionally an RPG fan.

Hurrah! All of the Mario RPGs are quite, quite brilliant. They all present really cute, slickly designed visions of the Mushroom Kingdom, and they don't take themselves too seriously, usually being quite chortle-worthy.

I'm currently in the middle of a couple RPGs meself. The first is Final Fantasy VI. Some months ago I decided to educate myself about the series and so I started with FF I and have gotten up to this one so far. They just get better and better!

The other one is the original Phantasy Star for the Master System. Fantastic stuff as long as you're armed with a pencil and a trusty pad of graph paper!

Doing overtime at the mo so I've not had time to play much at home (and when I'm there the misses is usually whacking pinatas with a spade)

Have taken the wii to wok though and lunchtime bomberman sessions have been ace. I now have a desk drawer full of gamecube controllers though :-)

I thought yesterday was going to end up in QA vs. programmers team games but we didn't have much time left once the 5th guy had finished stuffing his face to join in, word seems to be spreading though, so we should be able to rustle up at least 6 players before the end of the week

Still playing Warriors Orochi for the Xbox 360. I'm now just going through unlocking all the gallery pictures and stuff for every character. Great game!

Now that IS a good idea. We have a big plasma TV at work which is sitting not doing anything at the moment (and muggins here has been given the task of getting a presentation running on it). I might suggest connecting an old PC to it and having some sessions on Bomberman. One of the girls in the office has already said she's into the 'old games' like Sonic and she often plays them on her modded original XBOX! :-)
