Aliens vs Predator was a comic in 1992.

Aliens vs Predator was a game in 1999.

Alien vs Predator was a movie in 2004.

I don't think the 2010 game is based on a movie.

I wasn't a fan of the LotR games, if I'm honest.

Star Wars games...eh, well I think only KOTOR has ever done it for me. And Lego Star Wars.

Dragon Age expansion announced!

I love this game, it is a pure and total dungeon crawler with awesome graphics, funny script if somewhat poorly delivered in places and killer story.

Speaking of Dragon Age: I keep dying embarrassingly early in the game- it may be to do with the fact I have no healer, but any tips on how to not...die? At the moment all I do is focus fire them down in order...

Who's in your party?

I currently have myself as a warrior, Alistair, Leilana on ranged attacks and Morrigan dealing magic damage. If you don't have her already (SPOILERS), get Wynn from the Tower of Magi but you have to do the entire quest there first and it's fucking long before you get let out abd that might help.

How far along are you?

I did say embarassingly early- I'm at the bit where the battles ongoing and it's just me, Alasdiar and generic town guard/mage.
