I'd say they're all worth playing. The ones least worth playing (Hammerhead one in particular) are free with the Cerberus Network, so you've not really got any reason to not play then.

Zaeed's a frakking badass. My party was almost always Garrus and Zaeed.

I like Zaeed, but Garrus + Zaeed is like having Garrus + Garrus. Very shooty - in that they're pretty much the only ones that use assault rifles - but no variety. Jack, on the other hand, sounds like she's shouting the enemy to death.

I was very shooty. Soldier FemShep, Garrus, Zaeed. It was like a trifecta of badass.

Obviously I'm only far enough into ME2 to have two bland-o-chums from the start of the game, but in the first I'd been trying to use a rotation of squadmates while keeping the skills balanced.
Well, I say that. What I really mean is I'd have Wrex on any lengthy missions plus one other. Wrex. <3A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.

Definitely play Arrival, LoTSB is good too but I found the identity of the Shadow Broker a bit disappointing. Overlord is OK, but I think the ending is worth the price of admission anyway. It's very touching.

Welp. Looks like I've strayed into an ME thread....

Back on topic then, I played the first couple levels of Tyrian yesterday. The concept of pieces of story hiding in an enemy and possibly floating away if I'm not quick enough is an odd one, but it seems to be a very decent shmup. Can't argue with the price either.

Amusingly fitting to the current topic of discussion here, coincidentally I too have been looking into ME2 DLC before ME3 hits the world. Got Shadow Broker and found out along the way that apparently I've had the Zaeed DLC all along. Shadow Broker was good, not necessarily the greatest of things but the info dump you get as a reward at the completion is pretty interesting and it paves way for ME3 nicely. Zaeed's one was ok; not really keen on the character however, although that might be due to the lack of interaction he has with Sheppy/the world outside his loyalty mission.
I suppose I'll have to get Arrival soon too then.Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

In fact I loved it so much that it's one of the very few games I started up X-Fire for to take some very short gameplay vid clips, which I now will of course offer to inflict on you good people :) I do not by the way claim that I was playing this well, but it was bloody fun.

On topic. Still attempting to clear my mid-point and dropped list. Clocked Alice: Madness Returns. Whilst the 3D platformery taste is fresh I suppose Tomb Raider Legend is up next.

It's the most fun biotic/ability in the game for me just because it usually goes very right or very wrong - you either charge into someone and take them down quickly then do some flanking or find out that they had about 5 angry, shotgun-wielding friends with them.
What's the assault rifle you're using, is it a DLC one?

Finished with Dragon Age 2 and had a great time with it. Have to do another playthrough sometime as a hypocritical asshole mage who always sides with the Templars and calls all mages dangerous.
It'll be refreshing after this mage friendly playthrough. Dear god it was hard at times to always choose the "Not all mages are bad" option when pretty much every single one in the entire game falls into blood magic.
"Templars are chasing me!" -> Blood magic
"I think Templars are chasing me!" -> Blood magic
"I think I broke a nail!" -> Blood magic
"Oh fuck it's Monday!" -> Blood magic
Oh well, time to turn-some-heads in Human Revolution HARHARHAR

You know, I actually enjoyed the plot post Act 1 of DA2...including the ending. They certainly hammered the whole 'Blood Mages are everywhere' thing, but it was hard to disagree with the Templars because, well, they were right. At least I thought so. Anders' actions as well near the end of the game were incredibly interesting. I thought the rise of tensions through the entire game towards this point was done pretty well, even if the pay-off was rather ham-fisted. That being said, Act 2 was my favourite; the interaction all around was done well, the sub-plots were fairly interesting, sometimes incredibly funny.
The game gets a lot of deserved flak, and whilst I'm disappointed I haven't gone back to replay it, it had some redeeming elements.

I liked that that was subtly done. In fact, I love the notion of an Unreliable Narrator because it starts to throw so many things into question. How many of these whiny, annoying characters are like that because Varric thought so, not just because they were actually like that? Of course Aveline would find love with someone because Varric loves stories and romance is an easy one to make people happy with. Even if he doesn't out-right lie and only embellishes the truth, it just makes things so much more interesting. The writing team nailed that element and it's a shame it didn't completely pair up with the actual story at times.
Like I said, lots of faults in that game - too many - but its best parts were still pretty damn good.
