I have been delving into 'Activision Anthology' for the PS2. I've had it for a while but it's been relatively ignored (except for a quick go on the infamous Pitfall). I fired it up after reading about River Raid, which is actually really good (for such an old'n!).

I also recommend playing Keystone Kapers!

Activision made some of the best games for the Atari 2600
I always liked Pressure Cooker and Battle Tank

Keystone Kapers is a superb game , one of my all time favourites

Resi 4 - GC
DoDonPachi - Xbox (Final Burn)
Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon - Xbox

Loving Resi 4, not as different from the others as I'd exected, but an absolute graphical marvel with some o the most anjoyable gunplay I've encountered in quite a while.

Just about to re-start Kingdom Hearts on the PS2. Trying to get the girlfriend into Final Fantasy games and think the Disney angle is a good way in.

Dave Mirra 2 (GC) - going back to find all the gaps and complete all the insane challenges. Finally managed to do the insane wire challenge on the Swamp level. Anyone know a good online FAQ for the Gamecube version? (GameFAQs has the PS2 version only, and the GC has two extra levels...)

I got hold of Phoenix Wright : Ace Attorney for DS on Monday. It's fantastic.

I've also been playing the Japanese version of Sega Rally on Saturn - it's great to be able to use the analogue joypad.

Resident Evil 4(GC) - Just finished the main game, now the mini-games are consuming my life.

Advance Wars: Dual Strike(DS) - Bus journeys just are too short.

Meteos(DS) - Physically exhausting.

Matrix: Path of Neo(XBOX) - I know, I know. It was a present, sue me. :D

Just polished off my umpteenth play through of Dungeon Master - this time via the Return to Chaos remake. Ported my characters into Chaos Strikes Back for more fun and frolics. 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).

Currently I'm brushing up my cartoon management skills in Theme Park (Amiga - AGA version), learning how to be a pirate in The Secret of Monkey Island, and investigating a very twisted world in Sam & Max (both on my XP laptop via ScummVM).

For new games, I'm seeing more monkey madness in King Kong (PS2), and rolling blobs around in Mercury (PSP).

And PSP Lemmings better be good!!!
