I'm just hoping that the same thing doesn't happen to Xbox Live: they've got my credit card details*; and being Microsoft, if they have to shut it down it will take two weeks to start up again.

*Much like yours, I suspect: "Yes, we gave him a credit card. Yes, we now deeply regret that decision. Signed, The Bank".


The playstation network has been down for at least a week already. Luckily I'm not playing any games online at the moment.

I called out a British Gas Engineer because I have the 3 Star cover and our electric shower has packed in...you are probably thinking 'what has this got to do with video games?' Unfortunately the cover does not extend to the actual Shower Unit so the guy couldn't help me but on his way out he spotted my Playstation...'Oh he said, you've got the original fat Playstation 3, is it still working?' When I replied yes he gave me detailed instructions of what to do when it breaks down! :facewall:

^Great, you can now play Playstation in the shower,when you get it to work that is. I guess there is nothing to stop you to play in the shower without warm water but that seems kind of pointless, I mean, what is the point of the shower if it isn't enjoyable?

The water could possibly break the game, but that's ok since you have learned how to fix it!

I have commenced the great digital adventure that is 'Mass Effect 2'.

It never really caught me Mass Effect 2, I think I was disappointed that there was less opportunity for tweaking the character stats compared to 1. I never finished it, in fact barely started it. :(

I have lego pirates inbound though!

NO SPOILERS!

Anyhow, I got the best ending possible, without even trying. Just do everything! And be nice.

Be nice??? How can you be nice to someone when you're pointing a disruptor gun at them and you're dressed in full body armour and you've spent about an hour making your face look like a cross between Mike Tyson and Attila the Hun?

Just try to get your crew to like you and do their missions. And fully upgrade your ship. Yes, you have to spend that long mining. There's more detailed guides on the net.

Always go for the instantaneous Renegade options in cut scenes, they're far more entertaining.
