you don't want to play the orange box on ps3, glitchy as fuck

Portal costs next to nothing on steam and can play on even the most low-end computers available. If you have a mac I believe it is free but don't quote me on that. Do that instead.

I think im in the winddown phase of Skyrim. Missions are glitching out, and I don't care. Missions are becoming unavailable, or failed, because of choices I make, and I don't care. Last night I couldn't past a cave of Falmer, so I turned the difficulty down to the lowest level, and slaughtered them all, because I don't care about the challenge any more, I just want to play through some of the stories...

I think I'm losing interest in Skyrim too.

I've done a fair amount of the side quests (finished Companions, Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood) and am now going ot progress the main story to finish the game.

I might do the Civil War later but not sure if I can be bothered.

Played through single player yesterday. like how there's extra emphasis on close combat now; you can't just stick yourself behind one wall and shoot down every enemy from there anymore.

When multiplayer co-op is unlocked on Saturday, who wants to play around with it? We probably need a steam/xbla/psn gamertag thread.

I think we can just post gamertags in this thread, its all the same deal.

Is it Saturday our time or U.S. time?

In any case, I'm keen for some action on XBLA this weekend - username 'Pope Gumby'

I'm sort of disappointed that Metal Gear HD collection doesn't include a Twin Snakes port to go with the Peace Walker one, but I suppose Nintendo's to blame for that.

Well I could play it on a PC.
Do I need to set up a Steam account?

I picked up Bioshock and Prototype for $40 at JB.
Haven't tried Bioshock yet but Prototype is frustrating as fuck.

I don't wanna play the ME3 single player demo, would rather just wait till its release so I don't have to play through the same section again.

Currently going through FFXIII; I've been meaning to finish it for ages but never got around to it. Now that FFXIII-2 is out I ordered that from zavvi (along with resident evil revelations, nice graphics btw) and its sitting on my desk, mocking me. Lit of haters for FFXIII but I quite enjoy the paradigm system.

On my wishlist are kingdoms of amular reckoning and TOR but I think I'd have way too many games piling up to play them all, with little time to play them (sadly). Plus I'll buy a Vita on Thursday and I'm wasting enough money as it is.


Also, my XBLA gamertag is Shazie.

That's what stopped me playing it originally. I then realised once I've come back to it that I had stopped just as I was waking out of the hallway.

i assumed level 50 was the cap in skyrim, but a friend told me yesterday he's up to 52 - has anyone hit a level cap, and if so, what is it?

I am level 52 or 53.

Skill increases definitely seem to slow down after level 50 but it is definitely still possible to level up.

I read somewhere that the level cap is around 72 or something. It is just when every skill gets to 100.

You stop getting skill points at 50, but you still psuedo level. Who cares anyway, Skyrim is so 2011.

I could never really get into them that much, nation building games have always been about Civilisation for me. A friend of mine went MIA from life for a week and a half playing one of those games though....think it was the Rome one.

Surely that's a great idea.
