    Just installed Sims 2 yesterday. I like it better than the original but I still want the new one. Its weird playing around with people's lives.

    Finished inFamous 2, pretty good game, not as good as the first IMO but still enjoyed it :D  Will probably play through the evil campaigns for both eventually.

    Playing Alan Wake on Nightmare...finding the last few collectibles is so annoying, great game though, 10/10 for atmosphere.

    Just finished Ocarina of Time 3D. Now when I played the Gamecube port of this I didn't think much of it, but playing it on a handheld (which has always been my preferred Zelda medium anyway) has made me appreciate the game so much more. The updates graphics are superb, and the control system is brilliant.

    Gonna go back and play Phantom Hourglass again now. While not the best Zelda game, it was the first one I played through properly - it is has special significance to me :D

    After, like, three years I've finally gotten around to playing Motorstorm. It's pretty cool.

    Just finished Folklore recently. That was pretty darned good. Shows its age a bit, with the game flow being kinda clunky, and the mostly static environments. But on the flipside, it's stylistically gorgeous, with a unique and very active, tactical combat system, with a pretty darned good story, with a lot of emotional pull. Some of the grind gets a bit frustrating (I don't mind doing it. It's just the few odd Folk that are just really hard to use), though, so I can't bring myself to 100% it, especially with no Trophy support to encourage it.


    Starting up God of War now. Just felt like blazing through something shorter.

    I've been playing Bastion for the past few days. I'm really enjoying it, it's definitely one of the better XBLA games I've played.

    Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3

    Easily the best Dynasty Warriors game out there. They've finally gave you more of a reason to have some form of strategy apart from just hacking and slashing even though that's still a very viable option. Also i'm glad they have put the Japanese audio back in after taking it out for DW:G2

    Much more accessable also as they've actually made the effort of explaining things and the different modes :)

    Lego Batman. I had this on the Xbox, but after that red ringed I re bought it on the PS3. I hit 100% complete last night.

    Ra's al Ghul was not worth the effort.

    Wonder if we'll see a new game now Lego has the DC licence again.

    Hmm, my strategy is still "just kill stuff". Though, that didn't work when I tried the graduation training mission and flew into a zone with a Big Zam and 4 Aces.

    Finished chapter 2(though it's really chapter 1) of Shadows of the damned. Pretty fun and tight game.
    So many penis jokes...

    Taking a break from the frustration inducing Dead Space 2 (hardest setting without unlocking stupid hard mode) to play Force Unleashed 2. Does anyone know if by using cheats if it causes trophies/achievements to be disabled like some games?

    Currently on vacation, so the closest I get to playing games is Fallout New Vegas on my PC or Need for Speed Underground 2. Doing decent on Fallout, being a Neutral character, despite being tempted to destroy and wipe out everything living in New Vegas for shits and giggles.

    Still got Shadows of the Damned, Red Faction: Armageddon, L.A. Noire (just bothered to pick it up on a sale), Dungeon Siege 3 and FEAR 3 to play when I come back home.

    Just started Deadly Premonition.

    Its either the worst retail game i've played in years or a work of sheer genious, perhaps both.
