    DK2 is my wife's favourite game ever. Got it to work on her computer, but it crashes every 10 minutes. So if you know a solution she would be extremely pleased.
    Long story short, change settings in registry to force 32 bit and software rendering (because the problem's with 3Dfx) and then run in Win2000 compatibility mode with all the options below selected.

    Then run the game once to get it to accept the new settings, and then again to actually play it.

    I may well take that advice. I fear I may have already doomed myself in my Bachelor game by playing it like an adventure game (the murder mystery had me going all detective) and not focusing on building up stuff for my survival (I haven't even picked up any weapons yet) so it's probably best to start again rather than bang my head against a brick wall.

    I made a prior decision that I wasn't going to look at guides and walkthroughs, but thanks for the link anyway as I'm not sure how long that stance will last!

    Just finished Splinter Cell Conviction.

    Sigh. The game had potential but annoyingly it went down the path of combining action and stealth without getting any of them quite right. And it's surprisingly short, too, at least the main story is. I suspect it was sacrificed a bit for other modes. Still, though, it feels just too watered down. And the level design! So inexcusably linear most of the time.

    There are other things to try, of course. I've played some Deniable Ops, and it seemed to be quite good. Not particularly enthralled by the idea of taking out bad guys just for the sake of taking them out, but good map design could make me forget about it. Should probably just play it in co-op with my brother, along with the separate co-op campaign. I predict good times.

    Very tempted to buy portal 2 at £13. Then again I have a list of games on steam I've not looked at!

    Disregard your list. Portal 2 is essential.

    Portal 2 may be essential, but it'll also wait for a better sale. Come the Steam Xmas extravaganza I expect it'll be cheap as dirt.

    Perhaps, but the world might end before then, and then he'd have died without knowing the bliss that is Portal 2. A tragic fate if there ever was one.

    Please, everybody knows the world will end in 2012. He'll have plenty of time past Christmas to finish the game before Armageddon.

    Indeed, if you consider the main story little more than an extended tutorial then it makes alot more sense. Try setting up time limits and trying to tear through coop missions or playing the competitive mode face off.

    The Haruspex is definitely harder and I think I'll have to start again . . . again. I'm getting the knack of how to go about things now though, so next time will be different. Wasn't quick enough restoring my reputation and with health knocked by a couple of scrapes (which I should have avoided) I eventually got done by hunger as by the time I was able to buy food I couldn't get to somewhere with it in time.

    I'll be quicker off the mark getting my rep good enough to buy food next time!

    Just beat Zeno Clash in one sitting... Um... Not really sure what just happened.

    Couple complaints:
    -There were a lot of times where I felt like the AI was actively trying to get behind me, when getting attacked from behind is the BIGGEST annoyance with the game's targeting system
    -Only like 6 types of enemies, all repeated
    -No multiplayer?? I would've thought that to be a no-brainer.
    -I'm not very good at this game

    Great art style though. Really good enough to pick up all the faults and carry the game. Well worth the ~$4 I paid.

    Actually, I'm amazed most video game enemies don't actively try to get you from behind. That's what I'd do if I was facing a hundred-man killing powerhouse.

    Oo err, that's a bit suspect.

    Well, in Zeno Clash because the camera is always centered on the target you are locked-on to (or you can't do proper melee combat) when you get struck from behind it is very difficult to change targets and kill the enemy behind you. Couple this with some rather frustrating unit collision in tight spaces and the combat can get very annoying, very fast.

    That's about what I was thinking. It is 13 now, but it might be 6 later in the year.

    Dungeons of Dredmor, fun little game, I expect I'll tire of the first level quite soon though.

    Turning off auto-target was one of the first things I did. Got annoyed by it locking on to everything when all I wanted to do was run like hell. Mobility is too important in large brawls to tether yourself to a single opponent.
