Just completed Fahrenheit.
Now that I have beat the game and have 100% of bonus items I feel empty, there is nothing left to do.

More Punchout!! for the Wii. The challenge mode is fantastic, it takes the fights to new levels. I can't believe its taken me this long to buy the game, its easily one of the best games I've played for the Wii.

Yeah Punchout Wii is a marvellous update, good looking too.

Been playing a little bit of Forza 3. I'm Driver lvl 47 and part way through Season 6. Getting there now, a good game but some of the races are too stretched out, the super lap days season with class E cars is painful to play to be perfectly honest. I don't remember Forza 2 ever getting boring in this way...


I'm still going through N64 games, I did play a very interesting Beta called Robotech: Crystal Dreams. Wish that had of come out! Very Wing Commander-like, could of been a very good game from what I played. Now gonna sit down and have a play of Rocket Robot on Wheels and Ruch 2047 and see what they're like.

Played on my Jamma cab with the missus today (put in a load of 20p pieces - freeplay on these things?) and we got to level 3 on Captain Commando - great game! :)

Sscott, I think I'm right when I say you should be able to enter a diagnostics menu where you can select freeplay, maybe a button combination when you turn it on, or has it's own switch maybe? I know it can be done but on actual arcade hardware I'm not sure how you go about doing it heh.

Currently playing:

Elite Beat Agents on the DS. Not my usual type of game but there's definitely something good about it. Fun game.

Resident Evil 2 on N64, what a game! and one hell of a technical achievement. 8)

This should be what you need:

Though it depends what region board you have, the other two are on the list on that site so no worries.

Assassin's Creed 2 still, 2 achievements to go, then the extra assassination missions and treasure collecting (thankfully you can buy in-game treasure maps that show all the locations) for 100% game completion, that bloody feather collecting got annoying/boring really quickly and to top it all I bloody missed one, so I had to start from the begining of the collection... luckily it was one of the first 15 or so

The throw sand in 4 guards faces achievement is really giving me a headache, because you have to charge the move up, wait for them to come within range then let em have it, but by the time the move is charged up the guards are lamping seven colours out of you :evil: , I think I've got it figured out now, I'm gonna try throwing a smoke bomb into a group of guards and charge the move up while they're disorientated :twisted:

I can't remember the last game I've spent so much time on and actually wanting to get 100% completion, well apart from Vice City :D
