What Have You Played This Week?

Football Manager 09 – PC – Still playing, still going. It is my vice and will be for many years to come.

Space Invaders Extreme – PSP – I found this game at a local Morrison's for only £4 and I had to get it. The 360 version is fun, but on the PSP's small screen, the busy backgrounds are almost insane, but it doesn't detract from the gameplay which is fast, fun and just as crazy.

Ratchet & Clank – PS2 – I Had a old save file, and I really wanted to finish the game. The story is really good, and for a old PS2 game,the graphics were quite impressive. It didn't run well on the PS3, framerate would regularly drop to a slideshow which made the already difficult levels tough. The story is compelling enough to wade through this, but the end battle tested me. Still glad I finally finished it and seen how the series started.

Motorstorm Pacific Rift – PS3 – Played a lot of multiplayer, but the problem is the game doesn't match to rank, so i'm finding it hard to progress against those who have been playing the game much more. The main game has a similar problem. The races are much much harder and can be frustrating. But the game is good because there is always at least 4 very different races/tracks to race on, so if one is getting frustrating there is always another to try. What I did want, but couldn't do, was a simple casual race. I couldn't find one. I even tried to create one but after 15 minutes only 1 other person had joined.

Pokèmon Platinum – DS – Another guilty pleasure for me. Loved the series since Blue, and got platinum for my birthday. Over 24 hours into it i'm two gyms away and only 5 Pokèmon in my squad so far. As good as this series of Pokèmon games are, it really makes me want a Pokèmon MMO. There's not much else to say to be honest, like Football Manager, it's a series I always enjoy.
