Resident Evil - GameCube - Been playing this on and off for months with the gf and we spent bank holiday Monday making huge progress.

Jetpac Refuelled - XBLA - Trying to reach level 10 without losing a life for the achievement. Bloody level 8 gets me every time.

Ouendan 2 - DS - Unfortunately, the soundtrack isn't as charming as that of the first. Still a great game, but doesn't surpass the original.

Daigasso Band Brothers - DS - more lovely rhythm action. Shame it sounds all MIDIfied though.

Pipe Dream - SNES - played this to near completion. Again with the gf.

Puzzle Series Vol.12: Akari (DS) - They really should release som of the games in this series (such as this one, Slitherlink, Illust-Logic, etc) in the west.
Pokemon Diamond (DS)
Etrian Odyssey (DS) - Awesome Wizardry / Bard's Tale style RPG (you have to draw your own maps graph paper style using the stylus), great FM-based soundtrack as well.

Waiting for my copy of Odin Sphere (PS2) to arrive.

I am playing UEFA Champuons League 06/07 on the 360. It's fairly standard FIFA fare except they have included a silly little card game where you buy footy stickers and create a team from the players you get. Win matches with the team and get more points to buy more stickers (in the simplest of nutshells). It's bloody too addictive and I spend more time with the stickers and the team tinkering than actually playing the matches. I love it and hate it at the same time.

I'm stuck on level 9 of the mission mode at the moment. My first go on survival online we lasted just over 10 minutes, I've not gotten anywhere near that since.
How many of you where playing on line and did it still unlock the 8 minute achievement as I feel multiplayer may be the way to go for the 12 minute one? I couldn't believe the amount of stuff it was throwing at me as it got round the 7 minute mark :D Level 9 took me a while to crack, I managed to get past some of the later levels by foregoing the laser and powering up the flack cannon and lightning gun, also if you change the screen display from widescreen to normal you get less on screen enemies, I had to do that to finish level 19.

There were 3 of us, the other 2 guys were really pretty good at it. It did unlock the "cockroach of freedom" (survive 8 minutes) achievement too.

I was a bit bored this weekend, so I dug out my old Donkey Kong Country 3 cart. I never liked the game, so I never finished it... however I was able to play through to the final world in about two hours :)

Doom on XBLA.

Brilliant! I haven't played it in years and it still plays fantastically, and still gets the heart beating.

Nice one, I tried it multiplayer last night, unfortunately the other player was my brother and let's just say no further achievements were gained :D

Black on PS2!

God damn this game is cool but tough as nails!

Not to keen on the control though.

Shall be playing XIII next!

Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire on PS2.

Can be quite infuriating in places, but not a bad game.
