I'm ready to play the campaign again, on a harder setting.

But yeah, I bought it for the multiplayer.

Then three rounds came up and I'm running backwards and jumping the whole time! Still wasn't too bad with a 2 shot shotgun. At least now I have a 9-shot sniper rifle. The only place left is Sledge. I'm at Lvl 19 now.

Oh, I looked at Online Play, do you use your current character or do you make a new one? That was a bit confusing. Also anyone play LAN with Hamachi? I hate going through GameSpy.

True but there are many players who buy a game for the single-player aspect.

Myself included.

As much as I like SP I'd rather see Co-Op! It's always more fun playing with friends. Too bad both of these have taken a back seat. I hate multi-teamkill

I think you wind up doing a gamespy id's even for lan games. It is your current char... or a new one if you want. You can invite people into your single player games too if you want. You do need port 7777 forwarded to your machine though. Can't remember if it's tcp or udp though.

*edit playthrough two is Grouchy. lots more critters, and they're all high level. with a few badasses mixed in, and a couple of elemental badasses on top of that. add in a x4 difficulty multiplyer when your friends are in.... you'll be sticking close together. Fun stuff.

Ah, ok. Good to know. I just killed Sledge. He was easy for the most part. I hid back by the doors and he wasn't able to attack me. Then I shot him dead with my revolver. Not very sporting but I wasn't going to go head-to-head with him.

Well now that I have the fucking sexy as hell, no bugs detected Windows 7 installed I can now play all the games that piece of shit taintstick Vista could not or would not let me load.

Where that brings me is quite the conundrum:

Do I play.....

MW2?
FO3?
Borderlands?
GOW?



Decisions, decisions.

Man Dragon Age has some of the best dialogue I have ever seen in games.

"You should have Heard brother Tomas sing the Chant"

"Oh he sang well?"

"Oh No! He had a voice like a toad. But the Holy Mother said that if more of us sounded like him, The Maker would be sure to hear us"


Oh and it is running great on VISTA. So does Oblivion, Fall Out 3, Grand Theft Auto Iv, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, etc, etc.

Sounds like OTG has a Critical User Fail. neener

Well, I'd go with the cheaper ones and then by the time you finish the others should have dropped in price as well.

Blow me! I can't be the only one with Vista problems!

It is kind of miraculous that magically everything works perfect since I installed 7.

It might be a case of trepidation leads to problems....like the anticipation of trouble actually leads to trouble.

Well if you go looking for trouble...you're surprised when you find it?
