Hey Raz, I'm in the same boat with GoW. I'm trying to get it all wrapped up before the sequel hits. I can't recommend this game enough. I actually just started playing this game last week but am almost finished already (which for me is an extremely short period of time)... My girlfriend is still totally addicted to Guitar Hero II so we play that about 2-5 times a week depending (she's playing right now).
I just finished up Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin which I found extremely satisfying. I'm now playing through again in hard mode with the bonus characters.
Been playing Qwak on the GBA (thanks for the heads-up Raz) and having a lot of fun with that. Also playing a lot of Super Ghouls n' Ghosts on the GBA as well. I really like the Arrange mode in that one.
Been playing Ghosts n' Goblins (among others) on the Capcom Classics Collection for Xbox. I haven't been able to beat it yet, but can play more than half-way without dying... then it all goes south from there.
Recently found Star Control for the Genesis at a local Goodwill and have been checking that one out... very fun game, highly recommended. I don't have the time right now to dedicate to an entire campaign but it's on the list.
Last week I was in a retro mood and I played a bit of Pitfall and Gyruss on the ol' Atari 800XL; Jordan vs. Bird on the C64; and Return to Pirate's Isle, Star Trek, and Chisholm Trail on the TI-99/4a.
The Intellivision has been running Robots & SameGame for the past month, also recently acquired Minehunter and have been playing a bit of that as well.
The Ataris are sitting silent currently, I just received a copy of M.U.L.E. for the 5200 so will check that out once I get the chance (also can't wait for Adventure II). I'm expecting my AtariVox and vox games (+ Toyshop Trouble) to arrive any day now so the VCS will definitely be getting a good workout.
Last Hope arrived for the Dreamcast last week, have yet to peel the wrap off, but I should be giving it a spin soon as well.
Don't even get me started on the PC... I've got my sealed copies of WoW:tBC-Collector's Ed. and Company of Heroes just staring me in the face here. Just need to clone me so I can get to all these. Believe it or not, I'm still trying to get through The Movies... love the game but it's been slow going.
For the Colecovision I've been checking out Search for the Stolen Crown Jewels. The sequel is about ready to drop and found this one fun enough to be excited about the sequel. As you can tell, the homebrew scene is keeping me quite busy.
That's about it...
I'm really looking forward to the BBS segment Raz, that sounds really cool.
