I've only played Mario Kart online with my DS, and it had pretty good performance.  I didn't notice lag problems.

I loved Shoot Em Up, in large part for just the reason you said: it's exactly what you expect it to be.  Plus, he kills guys with carrots.  Awesome.

Diablo II.  No question whatsoever.

(Although Planescape: Torment was a big bowl full of awesome with chocolate on top.)

To throw in a totally different game than those that have been mentioned thus far: Marvel Ultimate Alliance.  Definitely worth having if you didn't play it elsewhere, or even if you did play it before and loved it.  The PSP version has some great exclusive gameplay modes.  (I talked about them in my review, if you want more detail.)

My wife's kept the TV so busy lately with Wii games that I haven't been able to play much of anything on any console.  The good news is that means she likes games, though.  I wonder what the "other" category is.  With my new setup, I just plugged in my Dreamcast again.  Maybe I'm not the only one. :D

Interesting new info from Nielsen, who does TV ratings.  Apparently, even if people have a PS3, they don't play games on it much...

http://www.nielsen.com/media/toptens_games.html

And here are the numbers in case that link dies:
Rank     Console     Usage Minutes %
1    PlayStation 2    30.2
2    Xbox 360    18.3
3    Wii    13.5
4    Xbox    9.1
5    PlayStation 3    7.7
6    GameCube    4.4
7    Other    16.9

So even the old Xbox gets a higher percentage of playtime than the PS3, and the PS2 is on top by a hefty chunk.  Wild.  Of course, these are just from the US.

I have officially moved into gaming overload.  Crisis Core on the PSP, Untold Legends on the PS3, both Burnout Paradise and Last Remnant (although LR is the back-burner game) on the 360, No More Heroes on the Wii, and I just found and picked up a copy of Dragon Quest VIII, which I've been meaning to play forEVER.  Before I got all of that, I was working on a new game plus playthrough of Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters... but I don't think I'm ever going to finish that.

...I can always stick forks into my eye and read the Wheel of Time again.

I've been thinking very hard about doing that too.  Er... reading the Wheel of Time books again, not the fork thing. :D  I know I'm going to need to before I read the final book, and it will supposedly be released late in 2009, so I'd probably better get started.

I recently read the last book in the City of Ember series, and it was really good.  In case you haven't read that series, I must say it's a quick, easy read (it's technically for teens), and books 1, 2, and 4 are great.  Book 3 is a crappy prequel that has nothing to do with the rest of the series, so feel free to skip it.

Started Crisis Core on the PSP last night, and am playing Untold Legends on the PS3.  It's fun being the cleanup crew. :D

HAHAHAHA!  Awesome.

My wife bought me a PS3, which was cool, because we planned to use any money we got as presents to buy one... so now I have Christmas money to spend on a game and such.

My in-laws (who I like) come over to our house every year, and most of the Christmas present action goes to my nephew, who's 5.  It's more fun to watch him open and play with stuff anyway. :D

Saw part of It's a Wonderful Life on TV and part of National Treasure 2 on Blu-Ray.  Otherwise, been watching TV shows on DVD: Simpsons, Fraggle Rock, and Dead Like Me.

This is weak.  Releasing old games with updated graphics is OK when it's been a few generations of consoles, like in the re-releases of old FF stuff.  The new FFT on PSP was outstanding, for example.  Stuff from that recent, though... it says "we don't have any ideas!"

You know, I've heard a lot of people say that about Hancock.  I totally didn't feel that way.  I understand why other people did, but I felt like the "twist" wasn't any crazier than having Jason Bateman's character being a totally forthright, honest, and nice PR guy.  No offense to anyone who is in PR (and I know there's at least one person here who is), but in my experience, that is not a job for nice, honest guys.

Then again, I have admittedly crappy taste in movies. :D
