Starfox Adventures (GC)- Finally beat Andross at last!! man, he was a pain. All the other bosses were pretty easy to beat expect the last one. Good games, played almost alike Zelda, I was disappointed with the ending, I thought there should been more. I wish that you could play Krystal a lot more. Maybe a sequeal which I doubt since Rare is now with X-box. Phooney!!

Now Playing:

Castlevania:Lament of Innocence (PS2)- Got four crystal balls so far. Stuck on one part in the Theater I can't get passed those dragon skulls that shoot fire at you. I must missed an important item somewhere.

Jak2 (PS2)- Pretty good game so far, I need to get to the stadium in three minutes, not doing so well but gotta keep trying.

So I got a cube for Christmas and have a ton of games I am working on that I bought cheap whenever there were good deals around.

Recently Completed
Beyond Good and Evil (Bought this for $15 at Best Buy a few days ago, put it in just to test it out for a little bit and got sucked in. One minute your fighting, the next your taking pictures, then your driving a hovercaft, soon the story takes off. Great puzzle solving IMO, and the personality/puzzles remind of games like Full Throttle. I liked the use of another character to help you solve puzzles and the story was seemlessly (ie no finish a level get a cgi cutscene ala final fantasy 7) tied into a relatively open ended game. I am very impressed, this game was a steal for $15 even though it is kinda short. Seems like the developers got kinda rushed as they started giving 5 pearls for certain things, but maybe short is good because it doesn't have a chance to get tedious or drawn out)

Metroid Prime (Finally beat it at 87%. I am impressed by this game, wasn't to into former metroids but from what I remember what a great translation to 3d. I am an adventure game nut, and this game seems to combine the best of a fps with an explore/adventure game. I really like getting all the new abilities, and the graphics are VERY impressive. I think my favorite part about the game is the morph ball stuff especially after the phazon suit, and the grapple hook. Amazing use of those abilities into a first person game.

Eternal Darkness (Not as scary as I thought it would be, atleast a jumpy kinda scary like Resident Evil. But it messes with your mind a lot. The controls alone put other games like this to shame, and with great magic too. The dialogue and story is very well written, with interesting characters in each chapter.)

Now Playing
Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (Just starting this one, but I will probably continue playing)

Mario Kart (On Mirror Mode. Single player racing was much better than expected for this game. 150cc was difficult to the point of being frustrating but always fun. A little dissapointed with battle so far due to the size of the battle stages but I will have to give it more time)

Playing on and off
Timesplitters 2 (Maybe I suck at FPS's but I am having trouble on the first level. I love the feel though, reminds me of goldeneye in the way it controls and plays)

Lord of the Rings; Two Towers (Not very good at this game but I am enjoying it so far)

Wave Race

Star Fox Adventures (Kinda dissapointed by this so far, at about 15%. Its hard not to compare this to BG&E as they both seem similar gameplay wise, but I'll play it more and give it a chance)

Back Burner
Super Mario Sunshine (So far I am dissapointed with this ,although I am not very far, I am not to fond of the water tank/clean the graffiti stuff)

Super Monkey Ball 2

Bloodrayne

Undying (PC) (Really enjoyed the first part of the game in the mansion but once you get out it doesn't have the same atmosphere. Really like the spell/weapon system)

Just Finished : Nothing

Now playing:

Prince of Persia : Picked it up from CC, loving every second of it

Shinobi : Was at Best Buy yesterday thinking damn I wish they had Shinobi, scared the hell out of me when the next game I looked behind had a hidden copy for 9.99 unmarked. At any rate I didn't know what to expect but it reaks of coolness taking out 6 guys and having them all die at the same time.

Megaman X7 : Game is too damn easy, only one boss fight so far has made me pause to think of a strategy.

Recently Finished
Star Wars: KOTOR (Xbox)
Mario Kart: Double Dash (GC)

Now Playing
Madden, NCAA Football, and NBA Live 2004 (PS2) - Now that these games are online enabled, I'm finding that I'm keeping them around a lot longer than I used to.
Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando (PS2) - I'm taking my time with this one. I don't really like platformers, but I love this game.
Manhunt (PS2) - This game is sick and twisted. And, it's also a lot of fun.
Lord of the Rings: ROTK (PS2) - Almost done...it's a good game, but I can't see myself coming back to it after I'm finished.
Aliens Vs Predator Extinction (Xbox) - I paid $10 for this at KB and I'm thinking that was way too much. Hopefully, this has some sort of trade-in value at EB or Gamestop.
Call of Duty (PC) - I'm on the last campaign right now and this is without a doubt my favorite PC FPS. I haven't even really touched the multiplayer aspect of it yet.
Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu (PS2) - See comment for Aliens Vs Predator, but substitute $19.99 for $10. The only redeeming value about it is that my son enjoyed the Batman action figure that came with it.

On the Docket
Beyond Good and Evil (PS2)
Fatal Frame (Xbox) - I read the glowing review of part 2 in game informer, so I want to check out the first game to see if the series is my cup of tea.
Prince of Persia (Xbox)
Splinter Cell (Xbox) - I need to finish the downloadable levels.

On The Back Burner
Max Payne 2 (PC) - Just haven't had any desire to play it that much. I'll get back to it eventually.

Coming Soon
NFL Street
Fallout:BoS - I may wait for this one to drop down $19.99

If there's a sequel, Rare won't be behind it as Nintendo owns the Star Fox Characters. Rare could make a similar game with new characters, or Nintendo could make (or have one of their second parties) a sequel, but I doubt it as SFA wasn't that well received.

Recently beaten:

Sly Cooper (ps2) - thought it would have been a cell shaded kids game but played the demo and loved it, went out and bought it. Excellent platform game.

True Crime (ps2) - Not a bad game, prefer GTA series and this game was very short in my mind. Completed game in its entirety in less than a week.

Splinter Cell (ps2) - I totally loved this game, it was fun and challenging, wish the ending would have been better. Cant wait to try out pt 2.

Prince of Persia (ps2) - Another sleeper game that I had almost overlooked, my gf was really into this game also so that was a bonus, Loved the ending also.

Currently Playing:

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - First time playing it as it took me forevr to find a copy but a very good game. I dont find it all that challenging, I am about !60-170% finished.

NHL 2004, Tiger Woods 2003 - Sports games, I play these periodically to keep my skills sharp.

On the Docket:

Tough to say since I have about 60 games that I have not touched yet and no time. But here are my choices:

Illusion of Gaia (snes) - I always played this when i was a kid but never beaten it, now the time will come.

Devil May Cry (ps2) - I really liked this game, but never beaten it at the time I receved more games and that got put on the back burner, but I think I am going to start over soon.

Final Fantasy V (ps1) - one of the only FF's I have never played before, not sure when I am going to have time to start a RPG.

Golden Eye (n64) - Beaten this a long time ago but would love to play thru it again, sharpen up my skils and start organizing some multi player action.

The last game I finished was Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube.

Currently working on beating Mario Kart DD! (150 cup) and Ikaruga, both for the Cube.

In the pipeline I have Zelda 4 Swords, once it is released.

Now Playing: Viewtiful Joe (GC) and Shenmue II (DC), but it has been about 6 months since I last touched those games. I'll probably finish them once finals are done, I hope.

I am 30 percent into this game, and I am wholeheartedly impressed. Gotta say one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a while. Very cool full immersion into the world, and the platforming is done SO much better then other games.
