Playing Club and Burnout on PS3.

Settlers 2 anniversary edition on PC.

Ghost Squad on Wii.

Children on Mana on DS.

If anyone could recommend a DS game, that would be cool.. Need something different.

Nice one! Patience pays off in the end I guess, thats a great price for the game.

I've been putting a lot of time into Megaman 9 (PS3), didn't take me long to finish it. I love the level design in the game. So tough yet a complete push over after you play it a couple of times.
My favourite part so far is the new bosses, much better than recent efforts each one is very well designed and quite challenging to beat with just the mega buster.
I've just got to complete the rest of the challenges now, got 24% done so far.

I'm still in the middle of playing GTAIV which is getting very interesting at the moment.

Good question, while I loved the game to bits the story really tied my brain in a knot. I loved the revelation at the end of the game though (you'll see when you get there!)

Currently playing Wipeout HD and Samba de Amigo (Wii version) which are both fantastic in very different ways. I've also bought Pure but have yet to play it cos those two games are too good! :)

Also Wipeout HD on PS3. My god, what a great game. I've still got the 'pilot assist' turned on though, I know it's 'for beginners' but it seems to address the control issues I've always had with Wipeout and actually makes it (unlike the other games in the series) a playable, even enjoyable experience past the second track. :)

And Kraftwerk on the soundtrack! Heaven.

Yeah, game is unique and very enjoyable, bit gruesome, and the story line is just f$£%ed up!

Still plodding along in Yakuza 2. I've probably spent more time doing the side quests and mini games than I have with the main story. The fighting system is much more refined than the first and the wealth of heat moves are brilliant and brutal and the main storyline is engrossing.

Castlevania:SOTN on XBox 360, opened up the inverted castle last night.

I think this is about my 6th run-through the game on the third machine! (PSX, PS2 now the 360). Not impressed that the download version omits the cinematics though, when opening up the inverted castle the plot starts to make no sense without them - while I know what happens I'm not sure anyone coming to the game cold would have a bloody clue what is going on.

It also seems that you can't swim underwater in the Wolf form and I'd swear blind that you could in the PSX version and in fact that was the only real point to the Wolf form. I have a suspicion that that difference (assuming I'm remembering it correctly) makes getting the Gamer Achievement for opening up all 200.6% of the castle impossible.
