If you have game ranger its easy to play online. I'm not a great player, but im experienced with online play, which is a lot different that playing an AI. Its all about massing rhino tanks and war miners and dogs

Hmm, sounds good! It's not a very large download, is it? (I don't want to needlessly push my computer...it is kinda old)

Interesting. In Painkiller, if you fire a ninja star at the base of barrels in the palace level, they shoot off like skyrockets before crashing back to the ground and exploding. Great for taking out the hordes of sword welding Muslims that come charging after you. Two zaps of the alt electro mode shatters the pesky living bones. Those big fat nearly immune to grenade butchers, one freezer shot - one shotgun blast. Ninja knights with shields. aim for the right shoulder when they drop their shield to attack with ranged weapon. The four pillars firing plasma spheres can be destroyed with four hits at the antennas from the alt painkiller. The scattered pots full of skyrockets will take out bad guys when knocked over in their direction and set off.

You can jam doorways with attacking masses of bad guys by backing through them then picking them all off with a rocket or grenade.

In Babel, you can easily take out the hard to kill Ninja Knights in the sniper towers by shooting the exploding barrels in them.

I love the downloads for old PS games. I downloaded a couple that I still own on disk, just for convenience.

Same

This year I've actually spent more time playing the classic PS games available than I have PS3 games.

I know last year at one point I was playing Hitman Blood Money for a while on my PS2, even though I hadn't played it forever then. I also pulled out Splinter Cell. I wanted to play From Russia With Love (James Bond), but never got around to it.

Now I've gotten back into Bad Company 2, and I've leveled up and unlocked a lot. That game can be so annoying sometimes but it's really fun now. I love countersniping the enemy snipers with my Mk 14!

SOCOM 4 is OK, but SOCOM: Confrontation was a much better game...
