1. Super Mario Advance 2 (GBA)
2. The Hobbit (GBA)
3. TMNT: Fall of the Footclan (GB)
4. Legend of Zelda (GCN)
5. WWF Superstars 2 (GB)
6. Soul Calibur 2 (GCN)
7. Scooby Doo Unmasked (GBA)
8. Uncharted (PS3)
9. World Heroes (PS2)

SNK Arcade Classics is such a great disc. Brocken was the last guy I needed to do a playthrough for, so of course he had the lamest ending and it's not like World Heroes will be remembered for its ending.

Alas, I am not as speed-runny capably as Uncle Batman.

Nice work! I completed the game a few weeks ago myself, and while I didn't enjoy it quite as much as some of the other games in the series, it was still a lot of fun. I actually just completed all of the challenges last night, and I am almost - but not quite - sick of puzzles at the moment...especially incredibly difficult sliding puzzles!

So you're saying you wouldn't want to play Cogs? It's a good game.

Also, why is your avatar blinking, prof?

Just beat Vanquish on the 360 and was left pretty disappointed. The last hour was complete and utter shit which made you question why they even bothered putting a story in at all :P.

Basically the story is crap from the get go and in the last hour they shove the crap of all craps down your throat. There is no real conclusion war is still imminent, the conspiracy has achieved its desired outcome, the main bad guy is no where to be found, and your entire effort is pretty much made completely pointless by the last events which occur on the space station/weapon.

Basically they left the ending wide open for a sequel which unless some miracle occurs will never and should never happen. The universe and characters are so poorly written and developed that this game has reserved a space near the top of my worst game stories ever list.

But the gameplay mechanics are really enjoyable.

The game play mechanics, set pieces, and visuals were top notch, but everything else kind of went to crap :P. The enemies became really repetitive especially the bosses, the story was nonsensical, and the characters were just bland stereo types that didn't really go anywhere :P. I will give them this though the idea they had for the credits was pretty cool although I wish I could have just skipped them to get to my final score.

If you were playing Vanquish for story, then you were playing the wrong game. It is a 100% gameplay driven game.
