Playing through the 2nd time on Easy is going a long way towards my enjoyment factor. This is about rebuilding my Shepard, not punishing myself.

As far as the Halo thing, I get the heebie-jeebies when this group ventures beyond the “we like playing games, and talking about them intelligently, and if we can unearth hidden gems all the better” and into the “we don’t like anything popular, hence we are insufferable nerds” territory.

Luckily, it’s rare we toe that line, but consider me the nerd police. (dah dah dah duh dum duh)
