    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.

    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

    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.

    If you have no plans to NG+ on that character, just kill Ornstein first so you can fight Super Smough. He is MUCH easier. You want to fight Super Ornstein for a char who plans to NG+ so that you can get both souls (and the ring) much more easily.

    Beyond that, mage is a LOT easier for that fight due to range. I still can't (consistently) solo them in melee, and I have been playing since it was released on the PS3 :p. With a mage, you just have to dodge and fire off a quick spell every so often (I like greater soul arrow since it has a decent amount of damage and very little frozen time). With a melee, you have to get up close and find the perfect opening. All I really had to do was dodge his attacks (using pillars to stop his charges) and either prepping a soulmass or firing a soul arrow. I only used my melee weapon during the first phase though as speed and mobility are the key to surviving the 2on1.

    That being said: Once you have dropped one of them, the fight gets a lot easier. It is just a really hellish boss because getting to that point is difficult and you'll probably spend a death or two learning patterns.

    But don't feel bad. Like I said, I have been playing since PS3 launch and I still use the following policy:
    2-3 tries solo
    One try Solaire
    Give up and grab someone at the bonfire

    But a few general tips:
    Prepare for the fight. It is the hardest one in the game (except maybe Four Kings on an NG+). I suggest having either a fire or magic weapon as you probably won't have high enough stats to make them a lesser choice and you won't really have enough time to keep recharging with an enchant (and the fight is really long so you'll probably run out of charges). For magic go see the smith in New Londo ruins, for fire go see the smith in the Catacombs.
    If you don't mind a bit of grinding, you can max out anything with twinkling and get everything else up to +10/+(whatever armor maxes out at before you need chunks). I don't really see a point to do that with most of your crap, but I do like maxing out my shield for the added stability. But if you are paranoid, feel free to max out everything.
    Keep in mind that boss soul weapons are a decent choice for this fight. You can easily get the 10 demon titanite you need to +5 them. I've used Quelaag's Furysword (fire) in the past, and my current mage was rocking the moonlight butterfly horn (magic). Not the best weapons in the game, but they are generally only really useful until the end of the first NG (and not even that if you do the DLC :p), so you might as well use them now. You can always do Lost Izalith first to get the respawning titanite demon if you want to use multiple boss soul weapons.
    Take your time. The fastest way to die against those two assclowns is to try and hurry the fight up. This will probably be the longest fight in the entire game, so just stay relaxed and watch for their tells.
