Was treated to a copy of Micro Machines on the GameBoy a few weeks back, and have managed to run the battery dry on my old GameBoy Color playing it.

Neved played Micro Machines on GameBoy. Would love to try it though as those games are ace. Have you seen CodeMasters' new MM homage game called Toybox Turbos? Looks fantastic!

Not playing right now, infact just finished it, but returned to my Metroid Fusion save file on my New 3DS and spent 30-40 minutes getting all 100 items (for 100% completion rate) and then defeated the SA-X and Omega Metroid fairly easily, really wish Metroid: Zero Mission was on the Virtual Console, missing that game now (I have it as a GBA cart, but no charger currently for the Micro)

Completed Star Wars Episode 1 Racer earlier today. It's a pretty easy game all the way through, but there's the odd track towards the end that caused me some difficulty. One in particular which required me to be extremely tight in this one section if I didn't want to completely throw the race. Even failing to do it the optimal way on one lap probably spoils your chances. And then there's the last race...which was surprisingly very easy. Made a few significant mistakes but was still in 1st place the entire time. I wonder if it was made to be easy, because the track's 'favourite' was a joke character in the pod racing scene on Star Wars episode 1 (the guy with four engines).

I completed the game as Bullseye Navoir. I remember the later stages were so hard that it'd just go "Boost/Crash/Boost/Crash/Boost/Crash" on an almost infinite loop.

Put in around 15 hours on Pokemon Fire Red this week lol. Never played the original Pokemon games back in the day, then got to play Gold/Silver, and missed out on the GBA ones, so it's nice to be able to play this. Game is awesome, and might even dethrone Silver as my favourite lol. Currently trying to catch Zapdos though. He just won't be caught!!! :P stocked up on 60 Ultra balls and got his health as low as I can without killing him, and I am having no luck so far.

Since my brother's been home for the holidays, we've been playing Sonic R pretty frequently. Fun game, just terribly unbalanced.

Got Pokemon OR for Christmas, haven't had all that much time to play, so currently I've just beaten the 3rd gym. So far, I think I might prefer this to X, but I'll reserve full judgement until the end. The new features are all really cool and helpful, somewhat. I am disappointed by the lack of fire types though, I know I'll be able to get Numel or Slugma soon, but the wild Pokemon are all so low leveled that the grinding will be ridiculous.

Had a game of Advance Wars: Dark Conflict with a friend some time ago and it reminded me how gooseberry fool awesome that game is, especially in multiplayer. Hoping he gets better at the game. He only just got it (his Christmas present from me) but he got a hang of it pretty quickly as it is pretty intuitive. It should be a really good time waster when he isn't so weighed down by work.

Actually managed to beat Castlevania after about a year of trying. Dracula is beyond a pain, but after try eleventybillion, I managed to do it. Terrible credit names though!

Aye. When I completed Castlevania I kind of cheated. I was very generous with myself when it came to restore points, at least.

That game is awesome, but I was never able to complete the last few tracks, the CPU always manages to catch up somehow.

Been playing lots of Mega man. X2, X3, MM7 and MM Zero on the virtual console.

Got inspired by a speedrun marathon a few days ago to pick up Sunshine as I have never personally completed, but have been what me and my brother call the support in a finished playthrough, so seemed time to personally play it from start to end.

Been playing nothing but Dragon Quest VI for the last week. So addictive! Seems like I've done so much and gotten so far into the game, but when I looked up a guide to get some more info on the vocations, I noticed I was only half way through chapter 2. Of 5 chapters. Put around 16 hours into the game so far too! Should last me a good while longer :D.
