Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon (not so far into it, every time one of my guys dies I reset the game and start that level again lol)
Peggle - Dual Shot (never played PC version but this one I got hooked to, im like 1/3 of the way through peggle nights (and all of peggle) after a few days though none of the challenges).
Retro Game Challenge (I wanted to see what it was like for all the gamers who grew up in the 80's (thats how the game was portrayed to me with the magazine etc. in the game) but it didnt work, I think im gonna give up and load old roms onto my DS lol)

Wierdly ive stopped playing a lot of my other systems. The DS is there and has fantastic games and its the same amount of fun but a lot more effort to play if I want to play my 360. And only games im playing on my PC right now are multiplayer ones when asked.

Lost & Damned(360) - I lost interest with GTA4 fairly quickly, but L&D is proving to be really enjoyable.

Mirror's Edge Pure Time Trials(360) - If you were sick of all the enemy encounters in Mirror's Edge and just loved running around from checkpoint to checkpoint, this DLC is awesome. I love just throwing on a podcast and running around the beautiful geometrical levels.

Gears of War 2(360) - Been having trouble playing online. It takes 5 minutes to find a team, and then after 10 minutes it fails to find another team to play against. So I just played with bots and still had a good time. Every shooter should support bots.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix(DS) - The gameplay is much less predictable than in the original, so each action you take feels like less of an accomplishment when it turns out good. Might be different once I get used to the weird gravity.

Retro Game Challenge(DS) - Haven't gotten very far yet, but the two retro clones I've played have been really good. The Galaga clone would probably be better than Galaga if it weren't for rose-tinted goggles. Though the best part is seeing people like Dan Sock in the game.

Games I need to be playing: Call of Cthulhu, Street Fighter 4.

I've been playing some of my backlog stuff. I finally got my 360 back from repairs and got it hooked up online.

mostly Mass Effect & Burnout Paradise

but I've been playing a little skate 2 and some arcade stuff. I want to pick up SF IV but I kind of want a stick for it at the same time so I've been holding off.

I couldent get into that one, I was loving the gameplay and wierd gravity (though honestly I think I liked Challenge of the Warlords better because I understood it more) but the reason I stopped playing was the loading, its constant so I gave up since its not conduicive to quick 5 minute blasts.

I had been going back and playing Mass Effect, but I was sidetracked by The Lost and Damned. I hadn't been very impressed with Mass Effect around the time I first played it, but coming back after about a year I was deeply engrossed. But, I guess not engrossed enough to ward off the promise of biker mayhem.

Good old Games is amazing, I got Fallout there the first day I could (open beta?) and loved it. The experience was amazing, I gave them my card details then I went to my account and they gave me a download link which I downloaded, double clicked the .exe and installed. Then I played. Ive redownloaded a couple more times and never had an issue.
Plus most games have extra stuff like wallpapers, avatars, Beneath a Steel Sky has a 12-page comic and Fallout has the Fallout "Bible" with lots of stuff on the making of Fallout.

Watchmen: The End is Nigh

Why? Because I totally geeked out on Watchmen and bought the DC Direct figures and all the movie books so I figured, "Why not?"

I don't have too much time to play games to be honest, being 24 really sucks sometimes...
PC: World of WarCraft, leveling up my second character to 80. Dawn of War 2, multiplayer in ranked matches; hit me up on Live: kindgalaxy84 for some fun!
Xbox 360: This is the Street Fighter IV console.
PS3: Everybody's Golf: World Tour with my wife, this game is called Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds in North America.
Wii: Nothing... maybe Super Mario Bros 3 soon due to the game night thread on here.
NDS: Chrono Trigger
PSP: Nothing, it just collects dust.

I've been trying to plough through my extensive pile of shame - and right now Im half way though Ratchet & Clank Future (that shows how extensive that pile is). After that it'll likely be Deadspace which I got on 360 for cheap.. and also Street Fighter 4..

Ive got Red Alert 3 and COD: WAR on PC to go through and about a billion tons of rested XP in WOW waiting for me when they are done....

I've been playing way to much Team Fortress 2, but it's worth it since it's such a great game.

I'll be getting Major League Baseball 2k9 for PC in a couple days, it's the first baseball game on PC since MVP 2005 :(

I've be kind of busy making back-ups for my move to Windows Vista, very scary and time absorbing.

Company of Heroes - LANing with some friends =)
Peggle / Nights - Passing the time
Titan Quest - Just giving it another spin, it never really grabbed me as much as Diablo
Call of Cathulu -- For the Rebel FM Game Club
YsF -- Been playing after hearing so much good about it on Retronauts, even though it's not going so well because those bosses are WAY to hard (100 vs 1000 hp, thank you)
It all started with a bang.

I've just started Saints Row 2. Played through GTA 4 a while back and after playing Saints Row for about an hour, I realized I enjoy its wacky tone over GTA 4's seriousness. I loved San Andreas and Saints Row is almost its spiritual successor.

I've only 2 complaints.

-While driving I'm always fighting the camera.

-I miss the cover mechanic from GTA 4.

Too many simultaneous games:

Halo Wars, Bioshock (first time, still haven't completed it), COD: WAW, HL2: Ep 2 (with commentary on), Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, and Animal Crossing Wii.

Still to play: Dead Space and Mirror's Edge on 360

I'm so far behind on my gaming (been watching a lot of tvshows and dvds) that everything I type on this list for a long while will be older games. Right now i'm working on really playing DragonQuest 8 : Journey of the Cursed King.
