I own RE4 for both consoles, and there's no question that the Wii version is superior, it's one of the best video games I've ever played. Not so much with the Gamecube, though I could be biased since I never bothered playing all the way through with that version. The Wii controls just make it so much more of an enjoyable game, as well as extras from the PS2 version.

Not to worry, I will get it someday but I'm just so fond of the GC version that I'm not all that bothered about missing out on extra features the other versions have for the time being. Kinda like how I only played the bonus levels for Tomb Raider 1 on PC just recently and I've been playing tahe game on the PS1 for a decade now.

I could have sworn I told you that I did play the Unfinished Business expansion pack but I did enjoy the levels. There wasn't much of a plot but they were just bonus levels for the hardcore fans. The best parts from the expansion were revisiting Egypt and the epic swan dive in Atlantean Stronghold. I still wish they were in Anniversary.

Yeah I vaguely remember you saying you had played them before. I played it years ago and all I really remember is the levels feeling really long and like you say, the story was almost nonexistent.
They really should have been in Anniversary though...

Yeah, I was just barely able to play Unfinished Business as I had to download the patch for it to run on Vista. As for Tomb Raider 2's expansion levels, that wouldn't even work for shit. Vista's lack of compatibility with certain older games is slowly becoming more and more of a problem as I tried to run the demo of Rayman Gold the other day but it refused to install the game. I guess it wouldn't be too bad if they were re-released to Steam and had all the bugs fixed but I just don't see that happening with these games at all.

My new computer arrived yesterday, but I can't use it until I back up the system restore onto DVD discs, and I don't have those yet. Quite annoying.

Anyway, I've been looking at Crysis on Steam, and apparently it uses SecuRom. Wit the activation limit, you get one back when you uninstall the game, correct? It's not limiting you to 5 uses, but to 5 consecutive uses, right?

I thought EA eased up on the use of SecuROM. I remember the backlash they had when they released Spore that contained SecuROM. Originally, it was limited to 3 different computers but they later raised it to 5 and now I'm hearing they're rewarding legitimate purchases with bonus stuff. If they're still going with SecuROM for some games, then I assume it's limited up to 5 uses altogether. I mean, why else would there have been such a huge fuss over Spore having SecuROM?

I know they released a revoke tool for Warhead, and I'm told that it's just a typo for the original game. Still, I don't think it would matter to me; I have only one computer that would actually play this anway.

Nah, I don't want you to have to harm your valuables. Any way you want to present it in it's entirety is fine by me.

Excellent; I think I'll just take pictures as they are now, and move a few that are obscured or under something else.

I'll take some pics tomorrow and post them; expect a lot.

I'd almost think the gamerscore and trophy groups are more of a lounge than the lounge itself, haha.

I think for Christmas I'm looking to acquire Assassin's Creed 2 and Dragon Age.

I am also getting stoked to get MLB The Show 10.

I'm considering purchasing a Nintendo DS Lite with some of my Christmas money. I'd be picking up both of the two Zelda games that have been released on that system, seeing as I've never played a Zelda game in my life and I should really get started somewhere, even if it is a handheld game.

Does anyone know any other DS games that are worth buying? My personal taste doesn't matter. If you think it's worth buying then I'll look into the game and make a decision based on what I can gather.

I've also been considering pre-ordering Darksiders. I've been told by several sources that the game has a Zelda feel to it, despite the theme being rather different. Does anyone have anything to say about this particular game also?

There are tons of great DS games so I'll just name some of my favorites and other highly acclaimed titles that you should look into.

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum
Professor Layton (either of them)
GTA Chinatown Wars
Scribblenauts
Castlevania PoS/DoS/OoE
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario 64 DS
Resident Evil DS

Metroid Other M and Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver are the only two Nintendo games I'm interested in. I'm afraid Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a no as I still haven't beaten the first one. Infact, I only played it for 15 minutes and never got back to it. The only other game I know I'm going to get on the Wii in 2010 is Mega Man 10.

Thanks for that. My younger brother has also told me that I'm more than welcome to take his games, which he never uses. I don't think he owns anything that you listed other than the new Super Mario Bros perhaps.

I've found both a Red and Black DS on the Argos site for £80, but both are out of stick in my local store. I can order a red on online, but the black ones appear to be completely gone. Not sure if the red one will look a little too bright for my likings though.

Decisions decisions.
