    That's not strictly true
    Miranda is the only person who can be assigned to their specialist task while disloyal without getting herself or someone else killed, but you can still get her killed in a few ways: by sending her into the vents, or by having her guide the crew back to the ship or come with you to fight the final boss if she's not loyal. Depending on who you have holding the line at the ship, you can have a couple disloyal people holding out and still not get any casualties. You could have not-loyal Miranda holding out with loyal Garrus, Grunt, and Zaeed and not get anyone killed, as long as you took the relatively squishier characters like Mordin and Tali to the boss fight.
    My Zaeed is disloyal too. Because fuck him and fuck leaving those people to burn in a fire he deliberately started.

    He always dies in my ME2 games. But he's a dick so I don't really mind.
    I much prefer bending him to my will so that he sucks it up even when I don't let him go after his petty revenge.

    I was kind of hoping get another shot at that fucker he was mad at in ME3, though, that guy was a ROYAL prick.

    I've never managed to make the paragon check to get his loyalty without catching Vigo.

    It's kind of annoying that you don't get the option to just leave him there unless you can Paragon it. He's a loose cannon, I don't need him on my squad!

    This is wrong.

    Taky explained the gat damn calculus for how that shit worked even.

    Unless you mean bringing her into the fight with the baby Reaper and having her be disloyal.

    Its a rougelike. So you explore, and then you die. And you start over and explore, and die some more. And each time you learn a little bit more about the game and get a little farther until you finally have enough skill to make it through the game.

    And its an Action Platformer instead of a turn based RPG like many rougelikes. So you can rescue damsels and whip bats and bomb primitive peoples.

    Oh and the original version is still free: http://spelunkyworld.com/original.html

    I'm not sure whether to persevere with A Machine For Pigs. I started playing it a while ago and got into a situation fairly early on where I didn't know what to do. Going back to it, I used a guide to see what I was supposed to do next and it seems like a script has broken and I'll need to start again. That's not a big deal, but if this is a game that's going to leave me tromping around trying to figure out what the game wants me to do next I might just pass. I think it's going to be tough to get back to a place where I find this game scary, tromping tends to ruin the illusion that there are a lot of dangers around.

    I haven't played much of Thief (yet! I'll get to the xmas gifts, I swear!), but I always played Dishonored non-lethal/ghost (is that what you mean?), so there was no real difference to the DLC for me, I mainly liked how it added to the story and lore (the witches are so goddamn cool)

    I just reached the end of my billing period for my Internet period containing the sale.

    My ISP plan is kinda unusual, in that I have a broadband cap, but once I go past it, I don't get charged more, I just get throttled down to dial up speeds.
    Except they only calculate whether to throttle you at midnight, so if you go over in your last day it doesn't matter because they won't cap you until midnight.

    I had 1.12 GB left of my cap at the start of the day and I set up everything acquired during the sale to download while I was going out all day.

    My single day usage for the last 24 hours exceeds the entire month of either October or November.

    I completed Bioshock Infinite. Oh man, that ending.

    Now I feel like I need to read some kind of analysis as to why I shouldn't love the game, because right now I kinda do.

    The only thing that bugs me greatly is (end of game spoiler you guys)
    If Booker and Comstock are the same person, it makes all the racist caricatures feel worse? Because it's not just the villain being villainous, it's another version of you, or at least your avatar. I get that it's a version that found he could get away with shit, while Booker is a version that feels really shitty for the stuff he'd done, but still.

    I do think the jingoism and racism was mainly in there as a smokescreen for the real story, to play up to the players expectation of a Bioshock game dealing with A Heavy Subject. Which it did, just not the one you thought when you started the game. So they were perhaps a bit heavy-handed with those themes before the dimension-hopping took over the plot.

    Related note, you'd think that Slate would have recognised Comstock as his old war buddy, especially when he started takin credit for leading the charge at Wounded Knee. He certainly recognised you.

    ...

    Unless he did recognise Comstock, and mistook you for him.

    Maaaaaan.

    So yeah, I thought it was superb.

    I finished this a couple of days ago, finally.

    Starting the game on Hard Mode was one of my biggest gaming regrets. The difficulty curve took a sharp left turn to bullshit town by the final 1/3 of the game, especially the incredibly frustrating boss fight against
    Lady Comstock

    I played on Hard and thought the fights were a bit too easy!

    The fight you're talking about was super easy because I used Mustang on the henchmen and ran up and shotgunned/hand cannoned the main enemy, who went down pretty quick.

    In fact, if I play it again, I'll probably stay away from that combo because it was super powerful throughout. The only fight I had any trouble with was the very last one, which I had to start over three or four times.

    Its kinda a "feel" thing.

    Vanilla Dishonored you had things like your home base, and the hub areas where you interacted with NPCs in between levels.

    In the DLCs you didn't have that, you went from mission to mission, each broken up with some painterly animatics and Daud doing some noirish monologues. Bonus points for the Witches feeling like trickster cultists.

    I think over the course of a generation the vastly cheaper software on PC evens out the relative expense of the hardware.
