I didnt like Uncharted 1 that much. Very repetitive. It hasnt aged well. 2 is great though. And 3 and 4 are decent games as well.

I liked the first one the best, got bored of it during the second and haven't gone back since.

I got it free on PSN and it was ok for a few goes but I didn't find it had much playability for me.

This is interesting. Lines in the code imply that the Virtual Console version of Super Mario Bros is an emulator version downloaded from the internet.

Been playing Battlefield sooooo much lately. Scary amount really. My gf is back in Belgium for the week and I didnt leave the house all weekend. Coming home from work and only stopping to make dinner pretty much. Tried to play Fifa last night and it was like I forgot!

Finished Uncharted 1 and 2. They're excellent games, 2 was leagues ahead IMO. Loved it.

Gonna play through 3 & eventually 4 I reckon.

Picked up my DS for the first time in a year or so over the weekend, discovered an Advance Wars game I hadn't played at all, Dual Strike.

Goodbye all other pursuits for the next week or two.

Ah that's mad I was just thinking about Gamecentral on Teletext back in the day, even when it was originally Digitiser.

Top quality news + reviews and great columns. Must check out that page.

Digitiser - couldn't remember it's original name. Yeah, I like it and most of the reviews are spot on for the games that I play. :thumbs:

They used to have opinion articles written by made up characters like Fat Sow the Opinionated Pig. Or Inspector Morse.

Finished my Uncharted binge last night, 1-4 completed, been tipping away at them since Christmas. Very enjoyable series of games, 2 & 4 are the strongest titles IMO. I really liked the feel of the shooting in the second one, was good craic.

Think I'm going to venture into GTA V next, had played a fair amount (but didn't finish) on the 360. Might give the multiplayer thing a whirl, I see PS+ is going to be on free trial for a few days, haven't bothered with it up til now.
