comment Is the old republic end-game focused?
Note that decisions you make early in the game can have long-term effects, and the Jedi Knight storylines supposedly have the most such repercussions. Thus in addition to playing each class, you can change your specialization and morality to gain a second perspective on each of the class stories.

There are story-related reasons for being human, as well as additional encounters you may have if you are in human form before defeating an area's boss. Also you have additional resistances while human. darksouls.wikidot.com/human

comment Why is my PS3's internet so slow compared to my computer?
Best Buy now offers pairs of Powerline Network connections that might help you. Connect one to an outlet with your router and the other in an outlet in the room with your system. Supposedly your house can support any number of these devices at 85Mbps.

comment What are the advantages of using the Huntsman?
The range is the only major disadvantage that I deal with. Plenty of time for distant targets to move. The arc means that arrows can't hit some targets that bullets can, but can hit targets that bullets can't. This is useful when you are below a sentry since you can sometimes hit it without being able to see it.

comment Can you beat the beefy enemies without relying on ranged attacks?
The Infinite hovering attack is not required for this. Merely move towards the enemy, jump, hit Y, keep moving forward to freedom. If you are going to land on another group of enemies, alternate X and Y until you are clear or reach the end of the screen. You can turn around in air, allowing you to bounce off multiple enemies or the same enemies multiple times. Since Beefy enemies are slow and tend to grab you, this technique, which I might call Jousting, keeps you safer while dealing good damage with your melee attack.

comment Do you need to take damage during warmup to let your medic charge faster?
Earning achievements for my Medic is a good way to keep them around :)

Soldiers and Demomen can earn their medic the Medical Intervention achievement though, if they insist on healing you during set-up.

comment How can I avoid being detected as an infected in left 4 dead 2?
Don't spawn until the last second. Also, a horde of zombies can prove a useful distraction for any member of the distinguished undead. If none are at hand, coaxing the survivors to trigger a car alarm (smoker, charger, jockey) or other loud event can be advantageous. Also, use the spitter to split up the team in different rooms or on other halves of a hallway. There are also several good places for a jockey, smoker or charger to move the survivors where they will fall off something deadly, done quickly so that survivors have less time to kill you before you do it.

comment Crew at the end of Mass Effect 2
The danger is when he is not in your group. If I recall, complete loyalty is not a requirement, but they can not take any special roles without danger and will lower your survival score if left behind, which leads to weaker combat characters like Mordin having increased likelihood of dying.
