So, what's everyone playing? While I wait for the Fallout: New Vegas DLC, I've grabbed two Xbox arcade games. Both platformers/puzzlers. One is a very dark, atmospheric, artistic game, the other an extremely funny old-school platformer.

See if you can guess which is which...

They might be available on Steam for you non-Xbox owners.

I'm currently about a quarter of the way through Suikoden V on the PS2 and am in the middle of an epic Fallout 3 save (currently 250 hours with lots more still to do, including setting up my own settlement - via RTS New Wave)

I would be playing Fallout New Vegas, but my PC can't even run it. Sad

I wish I'd played F3 on a PC. They could've modded the shite parts out.

Indeed. And they have. And it really does make it into a different - better - game.

Wouldn't be too hard. I can't believe that the same Bethesda who wrote Morrowind turned out the steaming turd that was the Fallout 3 main quest.

Well I'm still playing Goldeneye and F1 2009 on the Wii.

Haven't been able to spend a huge amount of time on either just recently, but I'd definitely recommend either.

I got a copy of Fable 3 recently, I have been enjoying that a lot Thup Much crisper graphically compared to F2 and fairly solid story so far I think....

Never really given much thought to the Arcade games on Xbox..... I sometimes think my xbox live membership is a bit of a waste of money.

I'm currently playing F1 2010 on Xbox. Had lots of fun until my save got corrupted. Wish I had Xbox Live and an internet connection to get the patch. I'm looking into getting Civilisation since I've never really played it before. Is Civ 5 the best one to get?

It'll be a Call of Duty Christmas at our house. Pretty sure the wife's got me MW2 and BlOps.

May have to thrash JPjr on FIFA11 too :p

Yeah but I have to make the best of it as in 6 months time he'll have learnt loads of skills and tricks and I won't be able to get the ball off him Sad

I've got my eye on 2 games for the new year. One is F1 2010, which should be good and I've heard good things about, though I might need an actual wheel for it. The other is Darksiders. Anyone got experience with the latter?

Been getting back into Sims 3 again, loses a lot of time, far too much to be healthy. 360 wise it's been jumping between Smackdown v Raw 2011, PES11 and F1 2011. Less of F! though, fucking Catalunya cheating me out of points in a HRT.

Just completed GTA-SA on the Xbox again. No matter how many times I play through it, I find I never get bored. So much so that I've actually neglected Fallout New Vegas since buying it.

Really wanna get my hands on Bully though. Had it on the PS2, and they've added more to it for the 360 so that may well be my next purchase.

Epic fail. 3 matches, two 1-0 defeats and a goalless draw.

NEWS FLASH - In breaking news, after a poor start to the season that has seen his team slump to two defeats and a goalless draw, JP has been sacked as manager. Speculation is rife on who the replacement will be but it is understood that JPjr is one of the front-runners for the vacant manager role Mrgreen

Don't be too unhappy mate, it is why I refuse to play FIFA with my son (margins would regularly be 10-0) and I only ever play Halo, Gears of War or Call of Duty in co-operative mode with my son. Just look at the silver-lining it means that our kids are more skilled and talented than we are Thup
