    I bought Bioshock yesterday, looks pretty sweet so far. I just ran into my first Little Sister and man, I can't believe today's prudish gaming industry would go for that.

    SPOILER:

    The Little Sisters are a source of some sort of DNA (haven't gotten that far yet) and look like cute little girls. The first time you meet one, she is bending over a corpse, extracting something with a syringe.

    In that scene, a crazed man (splicer) walks in a shoots her, WTF, shooting little children hasn't happened since Fallout! So her protector, Big Daddy, shows up and slams the splicer's head to the wall several times before impaling him on Daddy's big knob, eh, rod, eh weapon.

    That scene was pure genius!

    Need For Speed Most Wanted. It was really fun to start with I'm number 4 on the blacklist now and just have to get my bounty up to race the next dude but it's gotten a bit repetitive and I can't face much more. I also really want to watch the Fast and the Furious movies because of it :p

    As always, I can't just stick to one game...

    PC:
    Fallout 2
    Unreal Gold - old-skool
    The Wonderful End Of the World
    Audiosurf
    Mount & Blade - I used to hate this game, but since I first played it, it's actually become good.
    Diablo 2 - with some crappy mod. But I'm in act 3 now, so I've gone too far to stop now.
    Spellforce 2 + expansion - it's average, but since I've bought it, I'm going to force myself to play through it.

    Wii:
    Scarface - an exception to the film-tie-ins-suck rule.
    Guitar Hero 3 - actually, I'm slowing down on this to make GH4 harder - at the moment I can complete every song in the campaign on Expert (bar Raining Blood, obv).
    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - very average. But I can apparently unlock the Silver Surfer, so I persevere.

    DS:
    The World Ends With You
    Warhammer 40k: Squad Command
    New Super Mario Bros.
    Elite Beat Agents

    And yes, I've played them all at least once in the last fortnight.

    Mount & Blade was always good :p I should get the latest version...

    Playing Fallout 2 a bit with a stupid character. Just went and played a bit of Perfect Dark on a fleeting flight of fancy.

    Played a round of Medieval II. Working on a Milan campaign. Once Antioch and Jerusalem stabilize under my control, I can go hunting Rebels with the Mercinaries I hired during my recent Crusade...

    Tron 2.0. Very nicely done and original (not surprising for a Monolith game). The subroutine system and the rather large number of things to interact with makes it feel like more than a shooter (especially since the only weapon I was using the entire time was the Disc). The voice acting is sometimes poor and the story's average but all in all it was enjoyable. Shame the sequel got cancelled.

    The Devil May Cry 4. Well I just finished it actually but I might keep it for a while and replay some of the missions.

    That brings me back. I played that game for months on end (Had so much fun playing as a mage in a suit and top hat :D)
    However I never owned the game. I borrowed it from a friend.
    I wanted to re-borrow it mid last year ago...but I didn't (Sadly, my friend passed away in a car accident :()

    I know that feeling... nothing beats having a female mage, top hat and casting Tempus Fugit (music box, compass and pocket watch in inventory... priceless) :)

    Sorry to hear that. My condolences.

    Just finished - after many, many years - Street Wars: Constructor Underworld (Mob Rule to the Americans out there). I remember buying it new when it first game out in ~1999, and despite playing it a hell of a lot, never seemed to actually get through the missions. 'tis a good game - well worth acquiring (though it doesn't seem like the multiplayer will work on modern systems, which is a pity).

    I'm getting sick of Dial up. Tried several times to download a 5 Mb file, and the one attempt I got half way through the file when I got dropped without warning...

    But when I do, I hope to be more effective with Diablo II...

    Why don't you use a download manager like GetRight?
