Just finished Rogue Trooper. Up next, I think I'll try to finish off Ratchet & Clank and some of the other games I have saved half-way through.

Tony Hawk's Projects 8 on Xbox. Not that much different to the 360 version

I'm currently playing Zelda Minish Cap on GBA. Capcom have done a fantastic job - two-dimensional Zelda at its best !

I'm also playing Pac Man CE on the 360 - another fantastic overhaul of a 20+ year-old game - and will be starting Prince of Persia Classic shortly. I reckon those two games are so well done they justify the purchase of Microsoft's console.

Oh, and I've been trying to clock Call of Duty 3 on Veteran level for a while, but this game has to be one of the worst nightmares I've ever played - superbly atmospheric, but incredibly frustrating because of some of the dumbest AI you'll ever see.

I saw this months ago on a US site, is it any good? Does it come with a rumble pack??? Metroid Prime Pinball that is.

I've been playing Wings on the Amiga for the best part of the day. It really is such an awesome piece of work.

Recently I've been playing Pac Man C.E. and Prince of Persia on XBLA - great games.

Pac Man is a brilliant remake - one of the best games on XBLA for sure. Prince of Persia is really nicely tarted up, there's a couple of handy new moves in there and it's really tough.

I've also been playing a hell of a lot of FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage on Xbox360. It's a fantastic game - a spiritual successor to the Demolition Derby games on PS1/Saturn and so much fun online.

Yep, it does come with the Rumble Pack. Really enjoying it so far, lots of clever touches.

There's hype about it?! I bought it cheap because the store couldn't sell it. All my gamer friends at work wanted to know what it was like because they'd seen it and couldn't be bothered with it. I played for about 5 hours and drew the conclusion 'meh'. The graphics are quirky, the games play isn't bad (though some of the camera angles can get frustrating) and the story line's a bit odd, but not bad. Kind of reminded me of Sam and Max.

How you liking it?
