    Nope, unfortunately. It's one of the most requested features in the official forums, so hopefully we'll see that in the future. Speaking of the forums, they've announced an Eastern Europe expansion, with the rest of Poland, Slovakia, and adding Hungary as well, should be fun.

    Have you guys looked into mods yet? Other than a few cosmetic ones (real names for the Mercedes truck, companies, etc.), I quite like the realistic physics mod.

    Blood Money is great because there are lots and lots of ways to get Silent Assassin. I recommend looking at some youtube videos, the freedom is definitely not overrated. There is so many ways to get things done.

    You don't need to worry about that, since some of the tier 4 and tier 5 psi powers are insanely powerful.

    You can do fun stuff like mind controlling a rumbler and then turn invisible while watching him tear everything else apart. Psionic hypogenesis is another great skill to learn because you can fire it off when under pressure and then reposition to get a tactical advantage. It's not always about direct damage.

    It's a fun way to play. The energy weapons take care of robotic enemies, and your psi powers deal with organics.

    The hardest part of the psi/energy playthrough is the start of the game, because you don't really have any real way to deal with robots and turrets unless you put a point into standard weapons.

    I just did the level in the rehab clinic (got silent assassin) - is there any way to kill that one optional mark while he lifts weights? I couldn't find anything; no prompt to encourage gravity or to sabotage it otherwise, so I ended up strangling him.
    Also, that whole money reward thing is just bizarre. You get the most cash for being subtle yet the only thing to spend money on is guns, with a few exceptions. I don't think they thought that through.

    You have to stand precisely behind him. It's a bit finicky.

    As for the upgrades there's quite a lot of stuff, lockpicking etc. And you can upgrade the pistols to shoot through walls and be extremely silent as well as having the remote bomb radius increased (easier to create accident kills)

    If you stand right behind the machine while he lifts the weight, a context action to kill him with the weight appears for a few seconds. It's a bit fiddly and you need to stand in pretty much exactly the right place. Neat idea but the execution (heh) is a bit weak in this case. Alternatively you can try to punt him into the pond outside when he's on his walk. Hard to do that without being seen though.

    While I happily sing along with the choir of praise for BM, it certainly has its faults. The reward system is definitly among them.

    Yes you can, you just have to wait for the right moment. He has to let go of the weight first, so you can only get him after he finishes, but before he gets off the bench.

    Just bought System Shock 2, but I'll be playing some more MWO tonight.

    Dead Space 2 - finished it on Survivalist difficulty. For some reason game thought I already completed it and I played some kind of New Game+ All weapons and suites were available from the start for free. No idea why. Anyway, I didn't touch the free stuff and it turned out game was easy anyway, easier than first one. So, I liked it but it's forgettable, which is sad because I can see how much work went into crafting it, lots of detail everywhere, lots of throwaway detail. This is why I appreciate AAA games, indies will never have this level of detail, ever. But it's just so linear and repetitive. There are a lot of cool features( kinesis, stasis, ingame interface, zero-g, being able to drag around a bright light source) but 99% of game is either walking somewhere in the dark or shooting a plasma cutter while backing away. And there is always someone giving you directions, there is a locator - there is no need to explore, there are always two ways - one is for puzzle/objective, the other has some bonus stuff. There is very little variety and enmies are the least varied part, sure they are disgusting but there is nothing as creepy and unsettling as cyber midwives or monkey psikers or hybrids. The "SUDDENLY DEAD GIRLFRIEND" scare became funny almost from the start. Shame. Sickening death animations are great, no other game has anything like that, I think. Ok, next game.

    Deramfall Chapters got funded so I've decided to revisit the Dreamfall itself( no, I don't want to replay TLJ, no sir). Well, it looks and plays surprisingly adequate even though combat and stealth are terrible and controls are weird.

    I'll take playable controls over looking good any day which is why I enjoyed playing through TLJ over Dreamfall recently. Also, the lack of terrible combat and stealth was a bonus IMO.

    The DLC unlocks everything for free. There isn't an easy way to turn it off without messing with the game files.

    Still one of my all-time favorite adventures, despite its flaws.

    Actually, I recently discovered if you rename the Dead Space 2 exe "ds2.exe" you'll play without the DLC unlocks. Pretty easy to do.

    Well, this mage is a lot easier to use. Solo'd smough and ornstein on my first try (went for Super-Ornstein so I can deal with Super-Smough in NG+).

    Off to kill poor defenseless Sif, slaughter the four kings, and join the darkwraiths and kaathe.

    I assume you haven't talked to the image of Gynevere and get the lordvessel? Because the only way to join them is by killing the 4kings first before getting the lordvessel ya know

    Nope you just need to not give the Lordvessel to Frampt.

    I just can't stop playing Borderlands 2. I've played it all, but I still can't stop. It's a good thing I don't have any friends or I'd be in serious trouble as co-op is no doubt far more satisfying. I've also been revisiting the Broken Sword series - a fine way to wind down.

    Yeah, like Sketch says. As long as you haven't given Frampft the lordvessel, Kaathe will still be cool with you. That being said, I have no intention of talking to Frampft, just in case.

    Tell me your secrets!?

    I am stuck on Ornstein and Smough on my first play through and am so close to giving up on the game even though I love every second of it. I am trying to play the whole game solo but am considering co-oping this boss as I can't take two at once. I don't care about NG+ so easiest way possible would be nice.
