I got the first Portal game, and played for about 5 hours. I got to the 18th level, and I know what I need to do, but I can't move my fingers fast enough to do it.

If I could beat that game using a trackpad, surely you can beat level 18 with a mouse. :P

You may be wrong about what you need to do, then.

Hey Dean, is there a 'Dragon Age like' game that you would recommend? I actually quite liked DA. I agree about some of your criticisms like side quests, though the graphics on the PS3 seem reasonable. It is one of the few games I have actually finished.

Have you played the Mass Effect series? A little more action oriented, but you can develop a character to suit your play style, if you don't like to run and gun.

Only part 2 is available on the PS3 (with part 3 coming). You can pick up the first one for the PC cheap now, though.

I've been playing Dead Nation that I got as part of my "Welcome Back" gift from Sony. Fun game so far. I have only been playing solo but am sure it is even better with local or online Co-op.

I downloaded that, too, but have yet to play it. Got good reviews.

decently tough game when playing solo... lots of options to upgrade weapons etc.

If you decide to play co-op my PS username is terzaghi83... if you see me on I would be down to play. not sure if I have already added you before or not...

I havn't tried that one. I'm not much of a fan of run and gun games. I prefer something that involves strategy more than reflex.

If you haven’t already played them your best bet are the downloadable content and expansion “Awakening.” I haven’t played it but guess Dragon Age 2 is your next best bet.

I would read up on the Mass Effect games. They are stand-alone so even if you don’t play the first one you can still play the second just that you come in after the first act, but they do a good job of explaining what happened. I also don’t think you miss all that much by not importing your character from the first game.

To Two biggest shortcomings in I found in ME2 were the running around the ship to talk with your companions and mining for minerals to build special upgrades. Both can be more painless when you realized you don’t have to talk to ever person after every mission and you don’t have to mine every planet out there.

As far as comparing it to DA I’d say the ME2 has much better graphics and surround sound. At to that the flow of the story and dialogue between the characters and it’s more like you are “in the game” rather than playing it.

It is more of a shooter from the action standpoint. You can’t assign tactics to your teammates about all you can do is have them hold position or follow you. You can pause during fights to have them attack particular targets with their special abilities like mages casting spells.

Overall I prefer the non-action parts of the game so usually set a low difficulty so I can blast through the action to get back to the story. I just found it easier to suspend disbelief and get involved in the story which to me just flows better and seems more epic.
