Okami - PS2
Okami - PS2
Bit more Okami - PS2

Okami turned up today (duh!) and it's great. Graphically stunning, especially for a PS2 game, and really lives up to the hype (which makes a nice change). I've been wanting to try and finish off Ratchet & Clank, but I don't think it's gonna get a look in anytime soon.

I started playing Phoenix Wright 2 a couple of weeks ago, but then stopped for some reason. So I'm playing that again, Just got to the end of the introductory case.

I'm still playing Dragon Force and Panzer Dragoon Saga, but I've moved from the Saturn to emulating them on SSF to save space under the TV.

Ok I played Star Wars Ep 3 last night as promised...you were all right, it's not exactly earth-shattering is it?

Just bought Escape Velocity Nova, which is beyond excellent. Does everything an Elite-style game should do without the unfortunately obligatory obscene PC specs they tend to demand these days. I love the early parts of these games - exploring, finding profitable trade routes, escaping aggression by the skin of your teeth...

...then coming back with something way bigger 8)

Still playing Okami. The comparisons are obvious, but it's more refined and far more creative than the Zelda games. Also got a few rounds of Xcom: Enemy Unknown in this evening. Absolutely love this game, definitely in my all-time top 10.

Other than that, I've been sorting through my PC game collection to box some up and clear out some shelf space. Oh, and celebrating Plymouth Argyle's win in the FA Cup today. Woohoo!

Been quite an eventful day of gaming for me. From about 5-11pm yesterday, I and 4 mates descended on one person's apartment and played Pro Evo 6 on a 32\" HD TV, watched the Real Madrid game from a TV on the side, ate pizza and drank beer. Good times!

Since I got back, I've been playing all of these:

Super Mario Kart - SNES
Super Mario Allstars - SNES
Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose - SNES
Street Racer - Mega Drive
Rampage - Arcade
Blazing Star - Arcade
Intrepid - Arcade (great little spy game, reminds me of 005)
Karate Champ - Arcade
Space Fury - Arcade (rocking speech)
Satan's Hollow - Arcade
Super Cobra - Arcade
