Mostly been playing Shenmue II on the Dreamcast lately... I was late on getting it, I only picked up a copy from Gamestation last Saturday. I've been meaning to get it for ages, but just never got round to it until now... I'm sure glad I got it now though, I think it's a great game.

Been playing Sonic Pocket Adventure on the NGPC every now and then too. Mostly when I haven't been home and had nothing else to do... that's the only handheld I have batteries in right now, so I've just been taking it along with me again.

Well this month I've ben mostly playing...

1) Wrestling Encore (PC/INDY) - Wrestling gaming at it's most fun, worth a look even if you dispise the sport!

2) We Love Katamari (PS2/US) - Shows that orignal idea's can still be found in the industry today

3) Neo Geo Battle Colseum (PS2/JAP) - Just beat Goodman so I'll proberbly laying of this next month but then again I need to get good for when my mates come around!

4) Twin Towers (PC/FREE) - A fun mouse controlled puzzle game!

5) Phantasmangoria of Flower View (PC/INDY) - Twinkle Star Sprites gone mad!

6) Imperishabl Night (PC/INDY) - A Fantastic Shmup and would rank higher but I love Phan' a bit more!

7) SNK League Bowling (NEOGEO/MVS) - Brought this for my neo this month, lovin' it!

8 ) Blazing Star (NEOGEO/MVS) - It's still hanging in there, love the game though!

9) Bujingai Sword Master (PS2/PAL) - Er brought this on the cheap, very nice game!

10) Bomberjack (XBOX/PAL) - For some really random reason I decided I would try and understand this game (having played the game only once while on holiday in Spain many, many years ago!) on Temco's Arcade Collection Disc... the jury is still out on this one!

Uh, clearly. Well, apart from Zoo Keeper. Oh, and Mario Kart DS and Meteos. And Kirby. And even Project Rub (which while no classic is still fun enough for a tenner).
