Halo Reach

Those that know me know I'm not a very good gamer.  But I think I know why: I've always played my games on Normal difficulty.   So going from that to online, I've never really had a chance.
I'm playing Reach on Heroic, and while it is kicking my ass, I can see how playing it on normal would seem easy.
I mean, yes, I'm dying a lot, but if I were playing on normal, I don't think the challenge would be there.  Or more precisely,  not much of a challenge. 
I'm hoping to get through the campaign on Heroic, and hopefully it will help me become a better online player.


Splinter Cell: Conviction

I've never played a SC  game before, but I am loving this game.   MGS is probably my favorite series, so I love the stealth game-play.  From what I've read in this forum, the other games have more of a stealth mechanic to it, so I probably should go back and play some of the earlier games. 
My concern with that is:  after playing the newest in a series, it  could make you a little frustrated that is doesn't have the newer/better mechanics in it. 
But I'll probably try it anyway. 
I like the Mark and Execute, but like others have said, to  me, it is more enjoyable using a stealth take-down on an enemy. But,  it's nice to know you have it if you need it.  
 Edit: I F'd up.  Didn't know how to post this in the SP:C forum.  I suck.



PSP usage

I am going to buy the MGS:Peace Walker PSP when it comes out, and was just wondering, for those who have it, how often do  you use it?  

Obviously I will play MGS:PW, but I'm not sure what else I would use it for. I'll probably get Portable Ops after I finisher PW, but  I'm not sure what other games I would get for it.  
I know it has a lot of uses, and I'm sure I'll try most of them out, but was just curious, who uses it on a daily, weekly basis?
