I'm back to Neuromancer, and Ultima III.  I will also probably get into Wasteland again sometime soon.  Whenever I start feeling a little nostalgic I'm always called back to these titles for some reason.

curse of monkey island is one of alltime favorite games. Weirdly though I didnt like it when it was 1st released, possibly because I loved the 1st 2 on Amiga and I knew no.3 wouldnt be possible on amiga, plus at 1st it appears pretty different, and I was also stuck at the very beginning. It wasnt until I was using amithlon/os3.9 and a bppc owning friend recommended I try it using scummvm that I gave it a fair chance. Glad I did too as it's a great game. Ive never laughed out loud so often and heavily over a video game before. I strongly recommend anyone who hasnt played it to give it a try.

As far as new games go though, Im currently enjoying Mirrors Edge on XB360, gives a good feeling of immersion.

Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I finally finished God of War 1 this Saturday. On Sunday I reassembled my A4000 after a few weeks - CPU overclock, new fans, video switch etc. and started playing Frontier.... again.

I just bought Need for Speed shift and the settlers 2 10th anniversary, both for the PC. Can't bloody play NFS due to needing a better GFX card-I remember now why I stopped buying PC games. Settlers on the other hand had me up till 2am one night to which I thought.....cool, this is a good game. Just like the 1st only with different graphics.

Super Mario Bros on the NES every so often when I need to blow 10 minutes.

Hi again Mr Rabbit!

As for "forgotten" games: You (all) haven't missed Syberia have you ? Sadly I got the chance to play the second episode which I finished and never bothered with the first one later simply because of that, to my regret of course. :(

I'm playing Baldur's Gate right now, using the BGII engine, so I can export my characters over. I'd love it for someone to make a BG type game for the Amiga. I'd help provide sprite graphics for it.
