I had some trouble before I built up a sufficient Honor Guard to jump with me from map to map (after which point I could just bum rush anybody). You need to abuse the range on your Fire Warriors as much as possible early game, and the only way to do that effectively is to keep a Pathfinder squad handy for their ridiculous sight range... but Pathfinders have a nasty habit of wandering into the crossfire and dying, so that can be frustrating to someone with Severe Micro Deficiency like me. Once you get your Hammerhead tanks, though, you can pretty much attack+move your blob to the other side of the map and watch the fireworks.
I would get absolutely slaughtered if I ever played against even a semi-competent human opponent, I think.

Portal 2 (i think i will play it forever): the community chamber are a TON and most of them are great.
The more i play the more i realize what kind of game is portal 2. Definitely a shock.
I like 4X games, i'm playing Distant Worlds: Legends (give t a look, it's a bit expensive but it's worthy) and looking for Stardrive (which is in closed beta).
Finally i'm playing Starsector (previously called Starfarer): it's in alpha but works perfectly, it's a sort of RPG / action RTS. It costs $ 10, there are a couple of articles here in RPS.

RCT 2 again. I got bored a bit with having unlimited amouts of cash for building stuff so, I said "fuck it" and went on to play a scenario. Started in Infernal Views and what I have to do now is get that loan debt off my back ASAP. It's been slow but looks like I have to build more thrill rides. Man, those tickets sell like hot cakes.
Other than that, I played a bit of Deus Ex on the side. Killed Anna Navarre with a LAM I planted earlier before I talked to the NSF leader so, I don't have to kill her when they try backstab me later. Now, I gotta find that damn Ambrosia somewhere in a hanger. Maybe it's not in this hanger where I met them...

Just finished Mark of the Ninja.
Sublime. And the last "stage" was a thing of sheer beauty.

Tried going non-lethal in MotN, I might like it more than my previous bloodbath approach. Better late than never, I guess.

I kind of assumed the bloodbath approach was good for scoring, but there's a hefty bonus at the end for being non-lethal and the Undetected bonus helps too (some are slightly more tricky to get because you need to go deliberately close to the guard in order to trigger them). Systematically distracting guards adds a bunch of points as well but is not as pleasant as only doing it whenever it's needed.
That said, I've only gone non-lethal on NG+ and early levels (easy mode?) so I'll have to see how hard it is in later stages.

Playing some more Risen. I think I'm mostly through. I'm in chapter three of four (or so I've been told) and I've cleared most of the island, have pretty good gear and swim in money. Well, it's still not a particularly great game. The characters are incredibly boring, the plot is paper thin, the combat cheap and clunky, and all in all it just radiates mediocreness. There's nothing that is really bad about it but there's also nothing it does particularly well. It seems too comfortable with being average.
Generally, it feels like an RPG from ten, fifteen years ago. You know, like Gothic. Since then just so many RPGs have come out that are simply better. Dragon Age, The Witcher, Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect, NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer and many others (haters gonna hate) and I would reommend all of these over Risen.Old hat!

I went from CentreForward to LeftWingForward (Position Christiano Ronaldo is playing for example) and boom one goal and one assist!

After finishing Shadows of Amn, went back to NWN2 OC before going for Throne of Bhaal. About to get to Neverwinter, so I'm getting close to the better parts. Apart from the Orc caves.

Sure! I can suggest some good authors:
Azorae (easy and medium difficulty chambers; simple and polish design):
Gig (difficult chambers; usually mazy design but very rewarding at the end):
Mathey2009 (medium and difficult chambers; unusual design and innovative mechanics):
Mevious (medium chambers; classical and polished design, one of the most famous):
also you can add me on steam (nick: kavalarika) and browse my favourites, if you want we can test some good co-op maps :)
Hope that i helped you!

I'm about to run Origin for the first time in about 2 months - it's going to be grim, isn't it?
Later I'll be playing a GFWL game - not played one of those in more like 3 months...

Been playing Guild Wars 2 a lot this month. Finishing up the PQ and all the dungeons on my engineer, might even go for the monthly at this rate.
Current book I am reading is really getting me in the mood for The Witcher 2 (well, actually, it is making me want to play Dragon's Dogma but I Refuse to buy that until the re-release comes out in a few months, so geralt it is! :p). Decided to try out the Steam version since I grabbed it in a sale a while back (can never have too many copies of The Witcher). No retroactive achievements AND increased lag (compared to the gog release) means I'll just stick with the gog release.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Valkyria Chronicles (戦場のヴァルキュリア -Gallian Chronicles-) on the PS3. Way too many cut-scenes, clunky Japanese menus, but great fun to play when it puts you on the battlefield.
On the PC front, I'm slowly playing through my first game of Endless Space."He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free". ~ Luke 4:18
