Been playing:

Espgaluda - PS2

Mercenaries 2 - 360

Skate - 360 Nearly had as much fun editing skate films on this than playing the game!!

Battlefield Bad Company - 360 just ranked up to Level 21 then was getting darted by my own team members, I don't know why that happens but I just went and killed them all and ended up with a -50 point score!!

Just kick-started gaming again with a new 360 Arcade since the price dropped.

Currently on Ridge Racer 6 and PGR3 (but one of those will probably go on the back burner while I concentrate on the other) and Pac-Man Championship Edition which is lush, surprisingly so because I never really was a fan of the original.

Right, laugh at me all you want people but I have been playing a fair bit of Halo 3 recently and in particular put a couple of hours in last night. What can I say? I'm pretty much blown away by the gfx and gameplay. The fight with the Robotic Spider was one of the most exhilarating moments in gaming for me, it was incredible! Halo 3 is now officially my favourite FPS on 360. :P

Ibara retails for around £50 at the moment so I might bite the bullet and give it a shot around my birthday in November

Yep Thunder Force is preordered, it's the main reason why I bought the Jap PS2. I've also preordered the Limited Edition of the enhanced PS2 Trigger Heart Exelica.
Sweet! Be sure to post pics of them when you receive them. Would be nice to see all that lovely cover art. :)

I don't get it. I thought it was dull tosh. Would much rather play Gears.

I love FPS but I don't get the Halo series.

I've only ever played Halo 2 and I found that incredibly dull - maybe it was the high expectations or something. Although, if I see Halo 3 cheap I'll probably pick up a copy.

As a fan of FPS games I can honestly say that Halo is rubbish.

Isn't Halo 3rd person?

Anyway, I have been playing Star Wars The Force Unleashed and am really enjoying it. Was expecting it to be far more complicated than it is. Turns out it is just a decent little 3d platformer.
