    GTA IV. Finally netted me some more achievements, and unlocked the second island. Now I just need to get the main game done within 30 hours to get the Liberty City Minute achievement.

    I might be getting gold again next year. I really want to get ODST and might be fun to play online. Racing would be the cherry on top.

    Beat Mirror's Edge and got the Test of Faith trophy in the process.

    That means I got through the entire game without shooting any of the enemies.

    I think it's the only trophy I have ever gotten and felt actual pride at getting.

    I agree about being saved all the time, but there is an acheivement you can get if you limit the times youre saved, which is hard to limit.

    Super Princess Peach is awesome. It's basically a Mario game but you have an umbrella.

    'Grats on the Test of Faith trophy. I'm back to playing Mirror's Edge again. I'm trying to do all the Time Trials and Speedruns this time round, but they're seriously testing my patience.

    Feel no shame, Super Peach is a better game then the DS NSMB.

    I think it's twenty, actually.

    And really, to get that, just save often and take your time. Reload a save if you die.

    Been playing around with Wind Waker more. Might get around to getting the last of the heart pieces in Ocarina of Time (for the N64).

    Still playing the Ballad of Gay Tony. I love it mainly because of the sticky bombs and parachutes.

    Have Fat Man, will travel, still playing Fallout 3. Mainly doing random wandering about to do side quests, but sooner or later I'll get back to the main story.

    Back to the classics - 'Sonic & Knuckles' on the 'Flying Battery' level. Not far, but I just started!

    Just picked up Saint's Row 2 and having a blast. While I love GTA, this is more entertaining to me. Probably because it's not trying to be realistic.

    Ugg only 2 more achievements for Fallout 3. Level 20 with neutral karma and level 20 with bad karma. I already level 20'd my first profile but didn't bother to save before I got to 20 to get the other achievements. Anyone know any good ways to level up? I only have about 4 or 5 more sidequests left so I don't think that will be much help.

    Well, what you can do is trick the game into giving you more exp. When you face tough opponents, wear them down to one or two bars of health, then set the difficulty to Very Hard. Kill the guy, then put it back. you'll get the reward for a Very Hard kill. I did this a few times.

    Also, Broken Steel has nice EXP rewards, too. I turned it to Very Hard before turning it in, so I'm not sure if that had an effect on the reward.

    Also, save just before you hit 20. Level up to get neutral, then load the save you made before and go kill some dudes (Rivet City guards are easy targets. Just hit the one outside the main doors) until you hit Evil. Then level up as normal. For 30, you can use the Karma perks to get the achievements the same way.

    Anyway, made a good bit of headway on Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time. Fully upgraded a bunch of weapons, too. Aphelion is a dead sexy ship when you get lots of Zoni, too.

    Tomb Raider Legend, having another go since I didn't finish it first time round.
