Been playing a lot of PSP recently, Gran Turismo 2 (awesome on PSP), Ray Crisis, Strider 2, Ridge Racer Type 4 and various CPS2 games. My poor DS aint getting a look in at the moment!

On the 360 been wanting to play Ridge Racer 6 so bad but my disk is somehow shagged as it hangs while loading part of the World Tourny, so I'm gonna have to take it back to GAME and get it replaced soon. Also been enjoying playing through Bioshock again, a stunning game! PS3 owners are in for a real treat when it gets released soon.

Forgot to mention that I've played a few hours of Lost Planet and I'm loving it! :D Nice and fast action packed game with some huge bosses, cool looking mechs (not quite but kinda like them forklift things out of aliens) and other vehicles to use, big arse guns and great controls. Well I love it anyway. >_>

I'm just getting into Guitar Hero 3 on the Wii. Never played Guitar Hero before, so I'm rubbish, but it really is satisfying when you hit the right notes!

Finished Mercenaries 2 on the 360, a game that I'm left with very mixed emotions about. It was loads of fun put it's quite short if you're just playing the story mode and it also has quite a rubbish abrupt ending. Great characters though and lots of fun - worth 7/10 but I'd pay £20 for it max.

About to start on Mass Effect

Well i got Rez off ebay today. My first impressions? Not good at all. I normally don't sell my games but, since this cost my a lot of money, i'll be putting it back on ebay :(

It's a slow burner, stick at it. I still don't think it is the second coming that a lot of people claim it to be but it only really starts to click when you are getting into it and get a lot on screen.

I'm still amazed that I picked up the DC version for about £15 when it first came out and later on a PS2 version in Germany for 5 Euros.

Yep wise words, stick at it as I also HATED it when I first played it, and I really do mean hate. I thought it was overrated and shallow rubbish, it wasn't until I played the PS2 version some months later that it finally clicked with me. Trust me mate, when you get into it you won't want to let it go.

I was just starting to play Samba De Amigo on the Wii when the rechargeable batteries in my remotes ran out, I've only managed to do one song so far.

Tiger Woods 09 on Wii. Very nearly the perfect Wii Golf game. Just a few niggles that I am sure they could have sorted out if they weren't saving them for TW10.

It seems to be so far, I've noticed the timing seems to be off occasionaly although I'm expecting that to be down to the batteries on the remotes running out. I'd be more than happy to bring it when we have that get together.
