Any good?

It came out too soon after Burnout 3 for my liking, I'd kind of had enough of Burnout by that stage (I was Burned-Out, if you like :D ).

After you got past the gloss and visual improvements, I wasn't enjoying it as much as Burnout 2

Oh yes! I remember the days of playing FFVII when it was affordable for all gamers to play. When recently trying to pick up a copy at my local independent video game store, I was shocked to find a copy for $45. Yucky!

Today I...
Finished Black (PS2),
Jumped back into Oblivion (PC) and finished the final few Fighter's Guild quests,
Played a few rounds of Zombies (Snes) with a friend,
Ordered a pink PSP from Amazon with Everybody's Golf,
Got a box of old PC games out of the spare room today to re-install and try to play. Some classic stuff in there, so hopefully it's still playable.

:wink:

Okay I seem to be like a hyper active child when it comes to games, play one, then see something new and shiny and start playing that, ignoring the other.

But I'm definitely going all out at the moment to play (and finish) these:

Broken Sword 1 (PC/ScummVM)

Canis Canem Edit (PS2)

FEAR (Xbox 360)

Chrono Trigger (SNES)

I'm enjoying it so far, up to rank 5. Not too keen on the "quick start" meter for the Crash Mode though.

Sam & Max episode 4.

It's very funny, and a bit tougher than the last 2 episodes, I thought.

Laser Squad Nemesis

Post by andrew_rollings » Mon Mar 05, 2007 12:39 pm

I'm playing the single player campaigns in an effort to get good enough to stand up to a grognard friend on mine :)

The Gollop twins at their (almost) finest... (It's like the tactical combat part of UFO without the strategic metagame). The turn-based email system is kind of fun too.

If anyone fancies a game, try this challenge link that lets you download a demo version to play a mission against... I should be able to squeeze a few in (assuming I'm not inundated with hundreds!) Laser Squad Nemesis

That's released on PSP soon (in the UK, think the US already has it), so I think I'll pick it up then. Dunno why I never got around to getting it before on PC, I always loved the original.

Currently though, I'm playing Metal Gear Acid and Lumines.
