Going pretty well, zep; how about you? Good for you for getting Heart of Darkness! That game will make you crazy sometimes, but it's one of my favorite side-scrollers. The only ones I can think of that I loved more were the old Oddworld games. Just stick to it and practice -- if I can do it, you can!
"btw Wolverine, I might get a 360 for my birthday which is in a week and a day! And I'll get Live! So we could play!"
Sick as. Get Call of Duty 4, cause that's the only thing I play on Live. xD Only problem is the time difference, and also in less than a week Ninja Gaiden 2 is launched and (bearing in mind that Ninja Gaiden Black is my favourite game of all time) I'll probably be playing that and only that for a while.
And yeah, don't bother with Assassin's Creed, it's boring. (I wrote a review for it, it's on this site if you want to read it) =P
