    New Super Mario Bros. for the DS. It's probably the best game I've played in years!

    Lego Indiana Jones for the Wii. A lot of fun, but not as good as the Star Wars Lego games.

    Iron Man for the 360 arrived today in the mail so I'm alternating b/w this and GH: Aerosmith. Iron Man is surprisingly better than I thought it'd be (based off the demo). Still not the greatest, but once you get the controls down it's not that bad. Still prefer the Hulk game though.

    GH: Aerosmith is pretty good as well. Difficulty seems toned down compared to GHIII...which is a good thing. Glad I didn't buy the game though as I just don't care for the song selection quite as good as GHII & III or Rock Band. Still fun to play through.

    WoW; it's good.

    Also replaying Julius mode of Castlevania: DoS; still as awesome as it was when I first played it.

    GTA 4. I got it when it came out, and am still on the first island.

    BOMBERMAN- Got tired of it with only two worlds left to go, maybe later.

    Guitar Hero: On Tour- Picked up as my "before I fall asleep" kinda dish and I've been working on getting five stars on all the hard songs.

    Combat Arms- Started playing this, kinda fun.

    Team Fortress 2- YES STILL ACHIEVEMENT FIGHTING-FOR. At this point I don't see why ANYBODY would use the flare gun when you can actually get KILLS with the shotgun.

    Dig Dug - Got it to try and earn some more achievements, but it will never give me them. I smashed two enemies with a boulder... nothing. Got the first three veggies. Nothing. Really pissing me off. I want my achievements damn it!

    Sea Life Safari - Got this kinda as a joke. It is like Pokemon Snap for the N64. Take pictures etc. I completed it and got all the achievements. Looked at my rank for it using the thing on my sig.. Apparently I'm ranked #1 in the world out of 4,000+ people. :lol  Don't know if I should be proud I'm number 1 or embarrassed that I'm the only one who bothered to get all of them.

    Bad Company - Need to play some more online. I'm at about level 21/22 on rank and need to get 25 for an achievement. Guess I'll go play some more.

    Edit: Never mind the #1 rank is shared with about 1,000+ other people on Safari.

    Finally finished (I beat it, didn't bother getting all 120 stars) Mario Galaxy about a week and a half ago. Haven't played anything since. Have to choose between Crisis Core, Metroid Prime 3, and GTA4.

    Ico (PS2) - Fourth time through, just got past the windmill.

    Echochrome (PS3) - Something very soothing about playing this, up to F2.

    Pixeljunk Eden (PS3) - Only just started this.

    Super Stardust HD (PS3) - I suck at this game, lol.

    GTA IV (PS3) - Finished the storyline, a while ago. Still doing stunt jumps. What usually happens is that I do one stunt jump, get bored, then I go on a bloody rampage; it doesn't hold my attention long.

    Beyond Good And Evil (PS2) - Need to get back to this.

    Currently playing Soul Calibur IV on my PS3, with a side trip to Burnout Paradise on the 360, while trying to conquer zombies in Resident Evil 4 on my Wii, and learning some mythology with Kratos in Chains of Olympus on my PSP.

    Maybe halfway through Fallout 2 but i have a car now, cruisin 'bout the wastelands in style oohh yeah.

    Started up Dwarf Fortress, oh god was that a mistake. At first trying to play it is like trying to read the Lord of the Rings in Klingon but after a while you really get into it and it never ceases to be addicting. I highly recommend it if you have a social life to kill and can't afford WoW.

    Really trying to find a way to get ahold of Soul Calibur 4 i want to play with the character creator sooo much, oh and Vader (Give me DLC or give me death!).

    Rented Devil May Cry 4 for 360, as they didn't have Kane's Wrath (I have it on PC, I just want to watch the cutscenes without them getting desynchronized). I started on Devil Hunter, and have now hit a brick wall at Dante. Might give it another try today.

    The Dante-Nero switch always is a bit disorienting at first, once you get used to not having the devil bringer it pretty much falls back into place (assuming you've played 1 or 3).

    I love this thread because it lets us know what everyone else is playing (well when we can't see if on the PSN or Live friend lists. I got back into Okami and Patapon this weekend. Patapon sucked some time out of me, as I was stubbornly trying to re-defeat a boss at level 3, and Okami is always a great game to get back into. I also bought the Tim-Burton-esch-themed Otagi RPG from years ago. I'm thinking of diving into Okami fully this week, now that I beat MGS4, and share the time with some Mass Effect.

    Finished GTA 4 story missions over the weekend. I don't think I will try for the 100% due to having to start over if Trophies get added. Thinking of getting back into Assassins Creed but again why if we get a trophies update. :(
