Enjoyed inFamous, trying to finish Dungeon Siege 3

At the end of last week, I finished inFamous and really enjoyed it. If you have a PS3 and haven’t played inFamous, pick up a used copy for cheap or get it on PSN (maybe$20? I forget). The powers are great and it is tremendous fun to blow stuff up! Even the story line is fairly interesting and is certainly well done.

I pulled Dungeon Siege 3 out of mothballs and am trying to finish it. It’s pretty fun, looks good, and I am mostly enjoying it. There are only 4 possible characters, and you choose one at the start as your player character, and all the others can eventually become part of your party. The problem is, I picked the gun girl, since I was interested in playing an RPG with guns. The guns are neat, but she is the weakest character, apparently, so I die a lot. It turns out that the player character tends to attract all the aggro (or almost all), so the companion character can kill things as I run around a lot (kiting, I think it is called). This isn’t always true, but when the baddies are fast melee attackers, then if I don’t run and dodge all the time, I’m dead fast. The problem is that it takes long enough to turn and fire the guns that the baddies are upon me before I can get a shot off, then I take some hits and end up with low health. There doesn’t seem to be a way to switch to a different character to control, which is a bummer. I’m somewhat stuck in what I think is the final boss fight, so I hope I can figure out a reasonable strategy to survive it…

After that, perhaps a change of pace back to Gears of War 3, which I’ve started several times and never finished. Or a friend has loaned me inFamous 2. And Borderlands 2 is coming out soon, though I will likely wait until a game of the year edition goes on sale…
