Really enjoyed that game - thanks for reminding me; might have to replay that one myself...

Thanks to it's structure CSB isn't quite as easy to keep in your mind as DM, so it always gives me a bit more of a challenge rather than a simple nostalgic time attack (well I say nostalgic, but DM is every bit the great game it always was).

I loved Dungeon Master,but it got really hard towards the end of the game
I believe some people have actually completed it using one character!

PC: CIV IV. After a disaster last Wednesday, when I thought it might be 11PM and therefore time to turn in with a book and found to my horror it was 2.30AM, I have consigned CIV IV to the 'weekends only' gaming pile. Which will save the French from my nuclear fire for a few more days.

Xbox 360: Call of Duty 2. Finished the game on 'normal' (great credit sequence at the end!) and am now playing on veteran, and stuck in the Russian 'Comrade sniper' mission repelling the attack waves that my imbecile AI comrades cannot stop. The kind of frustration that reminds me of playing badly designed Speccy games.

PS2: Klonoa 2. Sheer Jap platform perfection, with a warbling cat and a magical, talking ring. Grand, psychotropic gaming.

MAME: Maze of Flott. Why is it so compelling? It's a mediocre maze game with a sweet chibi car. Oh, one more game, then...

Speccy: Exolon. I'm sure I used to be a lot better at this than I am now. The shame.

Oh yeah :)

I've done it plenty of times with one character. Usually old Mophus up there in my avatar, but I have also taken the weakest character in the game - Tiggy Tamal - and solo'd the game with him, taking him to Archmaster wizard in the process.

Lets just say I was a tad obsessed with DM in my youth.

A Sony rep came to see us in our shop today and he had Lemming on his PSP. What I saw of it actually looked like they've done a decent job. There's also a funky level editor included, from which you can upload your custom levels to the web.

Resi 4 is still rockin' my socks. Stuck at present though. In the castle, shot down the blind guy in the Prison, and through the corridor to the hallway where there are MILLIONS (well, not, but you get the picture) of mad monks waiting. I'm low on ammo, and even when I make a dent in them, the bint usually winds up getting herself deaded. Stuck.

Just finished playing Lemmings on the Amiga.
Started playing Oh No More Lemmings.

Also got Lemmings for Windows recently.
Got my mother playing the game too - she's doing much better than I originally would have given her creditfor.

It's a real pity that Sony own the Lemmings license.
Now there's one game that would be perfect on the DS. The touchscreen would suit if perfectly.
