What is "True Vault Hunter" mode? Is it just a harder difficulty, or is there more to it?

As someone said, do you focus on elemental weapons? Fire (especially) and Acid eat alive badass nomads and goliaths. I let the badasses burn or corrode, and yeah it takes a bit more time but you save ammo that way too and it's extremely effective. Even weaker SMGs can do the job just fine.

I also love those combat rifles that shoot out rockets/grenades. The projectile speed is slow but they are devastating on slower moving targets.

Not really much of a traditional video game, per se, but I'm really enjoying the Marvel Avengers Alliance on FB.

Other than that, I'm getting back to completing the 74 challenges in Assassin's Creed Revelations. With AC3 coming out in 8 days (SO pumped), I figure I have to complete them now, or else I won't.

After last night, 2 left.

And yes, I am a dork doing commentaries on a YouTube channel.

I totally love using SMG with elemental effects and Combat Rifles with "explosive" effect. Those are my bread and butter...and will switch to launcher if I need to take out Badass/Goliath or switch to my sniper if I can see red dots on the map not moving closer to me and wanna take 'em out from afar.

I kinda can't believe you are STILL playing AC:R I found AC online to be highly frustrating and unsatisfying (I'm sure that's mostly due to the fact that I suck ).

*shrug* it's really because I gave myself that goal. I was only playing once per week for a long time. I only picked up again because of the time crunch on doing the challenges.

Is anyone playing "Happy Wars"? It's a free-to-play game on XBLA (and probably PSN as well). It's fun, but the matchmaking is awful. Has anyone else had any issues?
