Nice Dreamcast find there. I also want to find a new one actually. Or Sega could just release a new console with backwards compatibility, that will also do for me.

I myself got The Witcher 2. From what I've played it's more my taste than Bethesda style RPG's I've noticed. The world is not as big but seems more "focused", detailed and alive. People going fishing early in the morning, others are picking berries in the forest and run for shelter when it starts raining, cats come out at night and not really during the day etc.
I also like the choices you make which are not as clearly good-evil.
And look who I found in the pub (Polish developers even) :

I downsized the screenshot a bit but I'm impressed by how it looks on settings slightly below high.

Hmm, I didn't pay enough attention. A bit after this screenshot his head was lying on the table though. No idea what sinister scheme was behind it.

For all its faults I really like this game. Old Republic is actually a pretty decent MMO but playing it made me long for a new KotOR release.

Don't even get me started on that. :lol: kotor 1 and 2 were building up to a plot suggesting that Revan was conquering the galaxy in order to save it from a far greater threat looming (serious Sith by blood as opposed to Sith following an ideal) that the Republic, corrupt and failing as it was stood no chance of surviving on it's own. It makes you think that Revan and Exile were going to converge at some point and fight that new conflict their own way, to help give the republic time to prepare. Unfortunately instead of getting a kotor 3 with a grand climax topping off the story we got another mmo in a genre that has far too many already. (Which as I understand it just does a "lawl 300 years laterz", blatantly skipping over the momentum the first two games established.) It's like if the star wars trilogy started with the death of the emperor and everything being all well and good in general, but still a few loose plot threads and a evil here and there. Leftovers. Nothing epic. kinda weak.

To KOTOR 2's credit though, I really have to applaud the depth of it's story. kreia is probably the most interesting character in the mythos, painting the force as an all enslaving entity that conscripts us all into it's web of service to do battle on it's behalf in destroying it's polar opposite. Going so far as to suggest that accepting the power of the force is a bargain in exchange for having your priorities and goals in life change to being a foot soldier in squashing the other side is pretty controversial, yet not entirely unlikely. Kotor 2 teaches the lesson that sometimes always trying to help people, even with the best of intentions, can sometimes weaken them in the grand scheme.

Fire Pro Wrestling XBLA. This is NOT the real FPW series but it was only £6 and once you start unlocking moves its fun.

I can beat Contra and Super C without getting hit but I have yet to play this one, supposedly the best in the series.
