Blood Pressure and Games

Ok, first off, I've not been too well recently. I've been having a bit of trouble with my blood pressure, and on Thursday I went to the Doctors for a check-up and it was sky-high! I've taken a few days off to try and get the thing down, and I have been put on two different types of tablets. Let's just hope it all goes down to a relativly normal level before I go on Holidays to Dublin in a couple of weeks time.

As for games, I bought a selection of games the weekend. I got 4 Saturn games and 1 Dreamcast game, all for £1.99 each at Cash Generators. I was duped a bit though, my fault really, one of the Saturn games (Fighting Vipers) was missing the game disc in the box! Can't take it back, as it wasn't a local Cash Generators. I'll keep you informed of what I think of the games when I get round to playing the things. Quite looking forward to Krazy Ivan actually, I'm sure I had this on the PS1 many years ago.

As for PS3 games, I am stuck on the third level of Devil May Cry 4... What a cracking game! Graphics are lush, sound is awesome and the gameplay rocks, however I am well and truly stuck and feel like I am running around in circles. I've been playing alot of GT5 lately as well, unlocked all the tracks and bounght many cars. I think I'm quite good at this game, and when I play online I usually finish top 3, which I am happy with.

Everybody's Golf is still keeping me going as well, unlocking more and more as the weeks go by, which is really cool. This has also been a week for PS3 demos, and I'll give you my feelings on three of them right now... Haze Demo - Awesome! A must buy in every way, surely a COD4 beater? Bourne Demo - Interesting, but I just don't know? GRID Demo - now, as much as I love racing games, this one doesn't handle quite right and the graphics have a wierd sheen to them... I really don't know!

Ok... My game of the Month.... Capcom Vs Marvel on the PS1, simplyy stunning!

Bye for now!
