Spent ages trying to 100% it but I just could not get the highscore on the electro shock extreme level. Everything else was ok.

Having mean withdrawals from Borderlands... Stupid university getting in the way of my gaming.

I've realised you have to do some really fucking awesome Batman/ninja shit to actually get a decent score in the combat challenges. Even more ninja than the regular batman stuff.

At least the stealth challenges have easily achievable goals... or some of them do. I often spend too much time in detective mode and dont realise how light it is, then get the shit shot out of me.

just got torchlight for $20 off steam. between this and killing floor, im loving cheap steam games.
basically a diablo clone by the people who made D1 and D2, with some nice touches and random levels, plus editors and shit. real pretty for a low spec game too.
srsly though, get killing floor and add me on steam :D

the key with the combat challenges it timing your button presses, rather than button mashing. I'm still not king as at it, but 40+ hit combos aren't too difficult to pull off.

trust steam to keep me occupied, they have Champions Online free to play for the weekend, and I needed to use up couple of Gigs by monday...
pretty standard fare I guess, but with a pretty insane amount of options for customising your appearance... (First thing I made was an zombie gunslinger)

I was playing Fighter Bomber on Amiga on the WinUAE emulator this evening. Great flight sim despite it being quite primitive. I failed a mission by landing on the runway in the wrong direction :|
