The only time I tried doing that, I ended the second game at Level 59.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeah, same here more or less. Like I said though, if you get out of the Mako rather than use it's big guns it becomes so much easier! Wearing down larger targets with the Mako's cannons before finishing it off on foot works too, but be careful not to vaporise any nearby weaker enemies.

Incidentally, what would you think the most dangerous enemies are on foot? Thresher Maws? Geth Colossus? Nope, you can easily strafe around those so long as you don't get too close. Rachni brood warriors: those guys are a bloody nightmare. Hence my decision to play as an infiltrator on this last playthough so I could snipe them from a nice safe distance. Plus an HMWSR X sniper rifle modded with a pair of scram rails and loaded with explosive rounds helps too!

I'm just starting another run through of Mass Effect 2. Seeing if I can really screw things up (but keep Shep alive for ME3)

SKYRIM

Somehow I can't bring myself to type it without holding down caps.

I'm actually considering importing my new Lv60 character with intent to get the "Out in a Blaze of Glory" ending. I know they've said those saves won't import to ME3, but it'll be interesting to see and I have a sneaking suspicion they might prepare a funny little something for those that try.

Actually, I wonder if it'll be possible to have only a disloyal Zaeed survive so Shep can live but then go and leave him to die on his loyalty mission afterwards...hmm.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just finished Battlefield 3 single player and despite a bright start it really begins to drag down after the plane level, which just looks fucking amazing. However towards the end of the story it recovers really well and has a 24 feel to it and reminds me a little of the SAS stuff in COD 4.

Just a pity the middle bits let the game down + bugs/glitches like the game randomly killing you despite not being attacked or failing to make the QTE prompts even appear.

Both Halo: Anniversary and Modern Warfare 3 arrived today. And I'm only 15 hours into Skyrim so far... good God, why? Why? I'm just one man, JUST ONE MAN

That's the one thing I hate about this time of year, too many good games come out all at once.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

In the past two weeks, I've played Batman: Arkham City, beat the game, side missions, got all the Riddler trophies and I've played through Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. I also sampled Skyrim, which I plan to play as soon as I get done with Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which I'm already 20% through and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Someone really has it in for me, releasing all these damn games at the same time

Still having trouble to decide, so I'm switching between the three of them constantly.

I am playing through the "Uncharted" series again. I finished up UC3, and I wanted to go back and start from the beginning.

You make it sound as though you have a choice, Skyrim.

MW3 and Halo shouldn't take you that long to finish so I would leave Skyrim for after to enjoy for a great long period of time

Re: What games are you playing currently?

^ Well, that's the thing, I can't really "finish" them because I'm way too hooked on the multiplayer (both in MW3 and in Reach/Anniversary) I'm in it for the campaigns too, of course, but the multiplayer modes... trouble me - also, performance issues in my PS3 version of Skyrim.
