12:05 AM
Quick, someone be my friend and hug me
On portal 2 for 360...
@Ktash Context is important!
@Ktash Aw. I was going to offer until you specified.
@FAE Heh, well I will take friendships and hugs almost anytime ;)
but in this particular instance, I'm also achievement hunting
Damn. Hit the Butcher's enrage timer.
My last achievement I need to get is the Friends List With Benefits achievement
12:09 AM
Oooh, my second legendary. Now for the reveal...
Oh, of course. My Demon Hunter totally wanted a Barbarian-only belt.
Ooh, Wizard gloves.
@Ktash hugs anyway!
Q: How could i get a lot of gold in World of Warcraft?

VodahminIm a level 28 Night Elf and really want more gold so that i can buy a Mount and training (300g). Please help me out if you know a quick way to get a ton of money.

@FAE Well, my theory was that I'd put it in a basement room which is currently storage but I hope to turn into a rec room for when the kid gets older. I already had a 42" TV. So there it will sit in the box for a year or two :P
@Sterno Haha, gotcha
12:14 AM
@FAE Woohoo, I have a friend \o/
@fbueckert Pssh, real men stand in the fire and keep fighting!
@Sterno I did! Got him to 20K. And I died.
@fbueckert :(
Then killed him on the next attempt.
Wow, 600+ DPS weapons with life on hit are expensive
12:17 AM
@fbueckert How much? I was pretty happy with the one I got yesterday for 500k
150 str, 240 dex, and 120 vit on it. So nice!
@Sterno Roughly triple that
@Sterno I need something like that.
Sad part is prices are down relative to a few days ago
Since a lot of people are in act 3 now
(for non life-on-hit weapons)
Whoa! You can slide through grates on Arkham City!
Well, found a spear with high 500+ DPS.
And 300 Dex and 150 Vit.
For 300K. Mine!
And now I have over 20K health! Woo!
12:31 AM
@Wipqozn I did this once. it was fun!
12:42 AM
Q: What armor spell should I use with my Wizard?

NicoI'm currently using Energy Armor with Force Armor, but are there any armor spells that are actually better than this one?

Huh, I just got a rare shield with "Increase damage against Elites by 5%". Didn't even know that was a thing.
@TimStone I've seen it in descriptions of legendaries before
doesn't seem that useful, tbh. I'd rather have 5% more attack against ALL THE THINGS
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I just stuck it on my Templar, heh.
1:09 AM
Q: Tool in WoW to find a compatible guild based on a profile

imaginativeIs there currently a tool available on the web where I can put in my character information, times I like to raid, what kind of content I am looking to raid and/or whether I PvP, and guild leaders across the board can contact me via? I am willing to pay the cost of changing servers for the right g...

Q: Will Split trigger Prodigy for each Magic Missile fired?

BrantOn a similar vein as this question about Electrocute, will the three Magic Missiles fired by the Split rune trigger the effects of Prodigy for each of the missiles that hits an enemy, or only once per cast?

1:26 AM
@agent86 Yeah, but you can't get an affix twice.
The thing about Diablo is that items are totally random, so you probably won't get the ideal stat spread, you just want to get as close as possible.
1:38 AM
I really want to find an answer to post this on
Also, everyone going to be ready for the influx of speculative questions during E3?
1:53 AM
@Ktash Is that a usual problem?
@AshleyNunn Haven't been here a full year yet, but I would guess...
@Ktash Yeah, I haven't either, so I was curious
Well, I guess as long as their not Diablo 3 questions, maybe I have a chance of answering something on here again
Yeaaaah, I am in the same boat XD
@AshleyNunn You can always ask more Kingdom Hearts questions ;)
2:00 AM
@Ktash grins
speaking of which...
Q: How many power nodes are there in Dead Space?

Nate KoppenhaverPower nodes seem to be rare to come by, with usually only one or less in a chapter. Does anybody know many total power nodes there are in the game?

@AshleyNunn Posted a KH question
about the series as a whole, but a KH question none-the-less
I don't think anything is quite so good at making me want to stop playing D3 for a while as reaching act II on a new difficulty.
2:10 AM
"I knew that I sharpened my weapon this morning for a reason" And what reason was that? Your nerfed damage can't kill anything, so that can't be it.
@TimStone it's a euphemism, obviously.
Let's hope the Enchantress sleeps with her tent door closed, then.
The Scoundrel is a sleaze, but at least he's not fucking creepy.
Yay, I can crit for 20K now!
2:34 AM
Made it to level 47 today. Thank god for no more heralds of pestilence.
@RavenDreamer Until the next difficulty.
I'm sitting in a room with 4 hard drives (1tb, 1tb, 500 gb, 120gb-ssd), a 2 gb flash drive, a 4 gb flash drive, and an 8 gb flash drive.
It makes me feel old to think that that flash drive for $37 is bigger than the first hard drive I ever bought :/
Q: What do we know about the keyblade war?

KtashI love KH, but as has been pointed out before, it adds a lot of lore to it. The video linked in the article seemed to know more about the Keyblade War than I thought was known. The only thing I know about it at this point is that it was a war between Keyblade wielders and was sort of a Light-vs-D...

Q: Minecraft Port Fowarding Issues and Errors

parioscreationsI have been looking across the internet for an answer to this problem but, alas, there is none. So I've come here. I am currently trying to make a new Minecraft server on my laptop. My router is hooked wirelessly to my computer upstairs. I have followed the directions that have been said by many...

2:38 AM
@RavenDreamer Heh, I have 2 internals, 1 external, and like 2 flash drives in my room
well, minus the ones I have actually installed
Ah, see, I was counting installed ones.
I have 3 HDDs installed, totalling 4TB
Could you take it apart and install it as a low cost SSD?
@YiJiang Probably not without some tinkering, but maybe
Also, a little small in (physical) size to be able to put it somewhere useful
What, you actually want it bigger?
Placebo bands
2:42 AM
No, but it probably would be awkward to install it somewhere in your computer at that size
@YiJiang Ooooh, you mean the flash drive. Gotcha. Was very confused.
@Ktash Some motherboards these days come with an internal USB port. Could this be used for that?
I was thinking, "why would taking apart a magnetic drive turn it into a low cost SSD?"
Also, someone posted the disk benchmark for the usb stick on the amazon page lol
@YiJiang Mmm, it might be a bit big if the port ends up next to a fan (it's not a short stick), but probably
Otherwise you'd probably have to hang the drive off where ever its connected lol
@YiJiang I have been strongly considering grabbing an SD card for that purpose.
(cheapo SSD that is.)
2:46 AM
I am a newly graduated collegeperson looking for a permanent apartment; any suggestions on how much I should be paying (% wise) on leasing an apartment?
@RavenDreamer Where do you live?
City, that is
30% of monthly take home
@Ktash Raleigh, NC
30% of your monthly wages is a good starting point for figuring out your budget.
@RavenDreamer I agree with @LessPopMoreFizz, 30% is a good starting point. It only really mattered where you live for expensive places like NYC or Silicon Valley or something
2:50 AM
I wish I had a better grasp of what taxes I'll be paying. I just started on Friday, so all I have to go by is my annual income divided by 12. (Which I know is too high, because taxes)
Maybe more, maybe less depending on how much you're planning on saving
... Depends on your tax bracket
If I was good at Excel I would be able to tell you how to calculate it
first hit on Google
Was fairly accurate for me
plus or minus a couple hundred a month (which may be benefits coming out anyway)
Does the chat ping sound not play in firefox?
@RavenDreamer It should
Does for me
Thanks for that calculator, Ktash.
... it depresses me to look at prices for apartments elsewhere in the country :/
2:55 AM
@ktash whizz at?
Stupid phone.
@RavenDreamer NP. Where you going to be working, if you don't mind me asking?
@LessPop_MoreFizz lol, Seattle prices are not cheap
Better than Silicon valley though, so that makes me happy
at least I don't work there
I live in NY. I know what my ex-gf is paying to live in Capitol Hill in Seattle. Cry me a fucking river.
Oh, NY is worse as well
yeah, no, I know. But when I hear my sister talking about getting a 2 bedroom apartment for $600 a month, I die a little inside
@Ktash I pay less than that for my mortgage.
2:58 AM
@Ktash That's probably her share, no? So 1,200 for the whole place
@RavenDreamer No, that's total...
600/ mo might get you a half a studio here.
@fbueckert ...
Not cool bro
In the hood.
@Ktash Sorry, dude.
2:59 AM
@Ktash I couldn't find a one bedroom apartment for that cheap, here, today.
Did I mention I rent out rooms, too?
All right. I need to get to bed early. Adios.
$600 a month here would get you 1 room in a house in the "ghetto" in the basement with some creepy old guy living upstairs... if you're so lucky
@fbueckert heh, it's all good. Just a little depressing. A cheap house in Seattle is around 350k-400k in certain neighborhoods
@RavenDreamer Night. Also, congrats :)
@Ktash Yuck
I'd never be able to afford that on my current salary.
Q: How long do sensor grenades last?

UllallullooAfter a while, sensor grenades seem to stop working, and I have to throw another. How long is this? It's hard for me to notice sometimes, especially in hectic situations, when it shuts off though since I might have just killed everyone there. It would be helpful if I could throw one preemptively ...

Q: Does the Misc Item drop rate conflict with the Hat drop rate?

RetrosaurI read the wiki, and it stated that for premium players, the drop rate for hats is between 1-6 months, and after a certain period of time, it resets. Then I read another article for Misc. item drops, and was wondering the drop rate for Misc items were, and whether or not it conflicted with Hat d...

Q: If question fails to be updated, can I post a new question?

RetrosaurI've been looking for TF2 hats that have been free to get (via free games, etc.) I posted a new post, but was told to simply award a bounty on a pre-existing post. What I'm concerned with is that the post won't get answered. It won't be updated, etc. And more than that, I'll never get an answ...

3:04 AM
@fbueckert Yeah, pretty much. I've started saving for one now, with the hope that I'll eventually be able to afford one lol
So, I'm retagging a question with the tag and considering removing it. Any objections?
Wow, 13K DPS basically trivializes Act 1.
@fbueckert I'm headed that way since I hit level 60 today
@Ktash Where is this?
3:20 AM
@OrigamiRobot Pullman, WA
@Ktash That's pretty cheap for a 2 bedroom
@OrigamiRobot Yeah, that's dirt cheap. I want those prices
To be fair though, no one wants to live there, so it's a trade off kind of thing
@Ktash I had a crappy 2 bedroom with @IanPugsley 2 years ago that was like $750/month
It was pretty old.
@OrigamiRobot I'm in 2 bedroom now that's what I consider cheap and it's ~$1000/month
@Ktash We rented a 3 bedroom house with a million extra space for that :P
THe landlord was awful, though
3:26 AM
Ours is not in the best neighborhood
My roommate got asked one day on his way home if he wanted to buy some crack
I think I could probably find some where I am now if I wanted.
We've got some entrepreneurs in the area who realize they should advertize their product
@OrigamiRobot crack? robots are too classy for crack, esp origami ones
@Krazer I said if I wanted.
@OrigamiRobot snickerdoodles are much better imo
you never just have one.
3:36 AM
I'm unsure how to handle a situation. This answer is essentially a copy of the answer that was posted before and moreover an inaccurate copy. As described in the comments, the user posted said answer because they didn't like the phrasing in the existing answer. I have no issue rephrasing, but I think flagging the answer is not going to go anywhere. What should I do?
@skovacs1 Downvote.
Yeah, what the robot said.
Downvote == not useful. If he has an issue with the phrasing, he should edit your answer.
3:52 AM
Holy crap, attack speed is worth a lot.
@fbueckert That's because it increases damage a lot!
@OrigamiRobot That pair of gloves I'm using is worth an easy 2 million.
1.85 attacks per second
@Brant Even a comment or a suggestion for improvement would be appreciated. I can take it from there. It's just that they seem to have gone through several of my questions and done the same. I believe based on their comments elsewhere that it likely has less to do with issues with the phrasing and more to do with issues with the idea of answering as you ask so I doubt this will improve the situation.
4:07 AM
Q: Bastion - Indie Humble Bundle

user68008I have downloaded Bastion for Ubuntu and installed in the home folder normally. When executing "Games > Bastion" nothing happens. Running Bastion directly from the installation folder results in the error below Unhandled Exception: System.EntryPointNotFoundException: glProgramParameteri at (w...

4:43 AM
@Sterno The Butcher is officially on farm! Will venture into Act 2 tomorrow.
A: What does the code at the start of each Really Big Sky game mean?

JamesReally Big Sky developer here :) The code is an interpretation of the random generation seed for the universe or "level". It displays the initial colours for the background, how strong bosses are, how frequently black holes appear... etc!

Q: Radiant Defense Android game have to repaid on new device

Nam G. VUI installed this game one my Asus Transformer tablet and have purchased all the locked items. I expect to reuse those purhased items on my Android phone but it seems to be I need to repaid for that. Is this true? If it is, I really hate this kind of purchase :)

5:25 AM
Q: How can I catch a guy who always runs from me (because I shot him)?

RachelI shot a guy who had a quest for me, and got put in the dungeon for it. Now he runs from me every time he sees me, and I can't talk to him to pick up the quest. Is there a way to make him stop running from me and give me his quest? (The guy is Fornival in Gran Soren)

5:55 AM
Q: Can you always win last man standing?

row1I seem to frequently die in the 'last man standing' showdown because: Out of ammo. Target is obstructed by cover. Max is in an awkward position e.g.doing a flip, and can't get a target in time. Can you actually do anything in these situations to not die?

Q: Where to find the Old Keepsake Box?

Edmund TayThe Old Keepsake Box contains 8 of the journals needed by Act 1 achievements "A Quick Study" and "Historian of Tristram". Based on the answer at http://gaming.stackexchange.com/a/70084/26911, it can be found randomly in Old Tristram or The Old Ruins. Is there a quick way to locate the box? List...

Q: Increase video cache size in Lineage 2

LoneWOLFsIs there any command line option to increase the video cache size to a greater value in Lineage II Goddess of Destruction Harmony client? This would in turn allow me to have lesser lags and greater loading times. I read in the official forums that there is an option to do exactly this by editin...

7:19 AM
Q: What is the profit in resolving the issues with Ulysses peacefully?

SF.What is the profit in resolving the issues with Ulysses peacefully at the end of Lonesome Road? Other than not having to fight him, that is? (the loss is I won't get his unique gear)

7:45 AM
A: Can you always win last man standing?

NoCanDo Can you actually do anything in these situations to not die? No.

Mmhmm, appropriate username
8:02 AM
Q: Anyone doing Zoltun Kulle Inferno Runs

DaveBeen getting pretty bored of Act 1 Inferno, and my groups slowly working on act 3. When we farm we usually just do Butcher runs, but I was curious if anyone runs Zoltun Kulle and if the drops and gold earned are any better than just doing the Butcher. He's a pretty easy fight, although gettin...

is there actually a question here?
@YiJiang I got tripped up too. It's: "Is Zoltun Kulle a better farming target than the Butcher in Inferno mode?"
Revised the question
Q: Is farming Zoltun Kulle more lucrative than the Butcher in Inferno?

DaveI've been getting pretty bored of Act I Inferno as my group is slowly working on Act III. When we farm, we usually just do Butcher runs, but I was curious to see if running Zoltun Kulle would result in better drops and more gold. He's a pretty easy fight with a few caveats, but I've only killed h...

Q: What are the archon skills and where can I see it in detail?

Jim Thiowhat are the archon skills diablo iii I am not really sure this http://www.diablowiki.net/Archon is accurate. I mean I know that the cool down of that button in #1 is definitely not 120 seconds. Also how in the earth disintegration wave has huge power. Finally it's not customizeable right? A...

Q: How do i get presents for elemental pillars?

mrminecraft3000I am trying to finish the objective of getting three presents from an elemental pillar but im not sure how. Sometimes i get coins but it still says 0/3. Can anyone help me.

8:23 AM
I made 20k :D
@FAE grats!
@Oak Thank you!
@FAE now you only need modship
@Oak Haha, maybe someday, someday.
8:35 AM
@MarkTrapp Haha. It has been a slow plod in between all the D3 stuff.
And now it's time for Avengers again and boardgames day, later all!
3 hours later…
11:34 AM
Q: When do elite mobs reset to full HP?

ThiefMasterWhen do elite mobs in D3 reset to full HP? Sometimes it happened right after dying the first time. Sometimes it doesn't happen at all and sometimes it happens after dying a few times. In any case there was almost no time to walk back from the checkpoint. So I wonder if it's random, just bugged o...

Q: Does performing drive-by's increase my skill with the weapon used?

ZsubI was driving through the 'hood, when suddenly some of them Ballas fools show up on Grove turf. Nobody disses Grove OGs, so I went to cap their busta asses to teach 'em. But do I gain skill points in the machine pistol category while doing so?

12:19 PM
Would it be appropriate to edit this question to mention Never Seen That Before and A Unique Collection as the question covers the middle one of these achievements and the answer will obviously be applicable to all of them? I believe it could aid findability for those seaching for either of the other achievements and would make the question more complete. Or should I add this as a comment and leave it to Sean?
12:31 PM
Q: How do "on hit" effects work with channeled / DoT skills?

OakHow do "on hit" effects, such as +life on hit or chance of fear per hit, work with channeled skills, such as Disintegrate or Rapid Fire? And how do they work with damage-over-time skills, such as Grasp of the Dead or Impale with Chemical Burn or just bleed damage from a weapon? Specifically, if ...

12:53 PM
@skovacs1 what are each fo those achievements for?
@Wipqozn Never Seen That Before is for killing 1 of the listed unique enemies, Special Snowflakes is for killing 15 off the same list and A Unique Collection is for killing everything on the list.
@skovacs1 I assume the answers cover all three achievements ?
@Wipqozn Yes. The op is asking for the locations of everything on the entire list.
@skovacs1 In that case, yes, I think that would be a good edit.
Q: What is the most profitable farm spot/area in Inferno?

NappyWhat is the most profitable farm spot/area in Inferno? Requirements: Do you need a high amount of magic find, defense, damage or a certain quest? Do you need a group? Execution: How to get there, how random is the spawn? How do you deal with the monsters at that place? Are there situations...

1:10 PM
@Wipqozn Thanks. Done.
1:35 PM
Woo! 80k!
1:46 PM
@RavenDreamer That made me wonder, what is the rep distribution on G.SE like? Does Raven's rep represent a significant percentage of the aggregate reps on this site?
@YiJiang You know how protesters are complaining about the 1%? He's the 1% of the 1%
He's greedy and keeping all that undeserved rep for himself!
@Sterno Actually, given the long tail rep distribution on SE sites I'd say that anybody with a few thousand reps would be the 1% on a site like this
What would be impressive is if he had 1% of the aggregate rep
241 users have 1000+ rep out of ~20,000 total.
So yup, we are the 1%. Nice.
@Brant Neat!
1:54 PM
I say we tax raven's reps, and use them to fund public works projects!
as a builder on the stack exchange network, clearly I will qualify for these public works rep grants.
Q: When are the extra levels available?

JohnoBoyMighty Switch Force was updated recently with 5 new levels, I got a prompt to update my version when I entered the eShop but I still see only 16 levels in the game. Are the extra levels only available after completing the main levels?

@skovacs1 No, thank you for making the site a better place!
Well, I need to return to work (woo, overtime!). Perhaps I'll eat some All-Dressed Chips... What do you think @StrixVaria?
@agent86 My special interest group would like to lobby you for some of these rep funds
We are prepared to offer you lolcats
@agent86 You know, that's actually not a bad idea. Stick some 500 rep bounties on some of this site's last few endangered unanswered question so that we can wipe them out as a species
Although most of the unanswered tab doesn't look particularly interesting or answerable
The problem is not many of the unanswered question are "worth" adding a bounty to, in terms of the amount of views they're getting
Q: What are garden ornaments?

Ashley NunnIn Snoopy's Street Fair, there is a quest where you have to obtain 4 garden ornaments. What counts as a garden ornament? I apparently have 1 (the quest is 25% complete), but I have a lot of scenery objects, so I am not sure which one it is. I know that it isn't lawnmowers or tricycles or the ...

I see this one has 5k views
ugh I had Hell Diablo at a miniscule amount of life and he hit me with the AoE right after he picked me up
2:10 PM
@OrigamiRobot Did he/she/it at least use a good pick-up line?
@Sterno done and done. consider your rep-interests over-represented!
@YiJiang I've gone over the unanswered list a bunch of times trying to find answers, and have more or less struck out on most of them, sadly :(
@skovacs1 "How tastes your own fear, nephalem?"
@agent86 Same
@agent86 I mean, sticking a 500 rep bounty on it to encourage answers, since any rep accumulated over 20k has no effect on privileges anyway
So I'm in inferno and have yet to visit Whimsyshire
2:16 PM
@OrigamiRobot It's not all that fun
I also put this thing in the AH for 90k instead of 9k...
@OrigamiRobot That's a pretty good line. Sounds like an interesting date. They picked you up, hit you with and AOE right away. There was witty commentary. I'm not sure about making you to pay - sounds like a cheapskate.
@YiJiang Yeah, I would love an answer to this, but so few people play it or care, and there isn't a lot of information out there. :(
Alternatively, you can stick a 500 dollar bounty, and I'll prompt go out and buy an iPod Touch then play the game for three days straight to find you the answer :P
Also, looking at the App Store page for this app, is there really a $99 item up for in game purchase? o_o
@YiJiang Yeah - that would be a crapton of Snoopy dollars - this is a common thing in games of this type
2:24 PM
Smurf Village, Farmville, etc - they all have various levels of premium currency buy-ins - starts at usually 99 cents (for SSF its 4.99) and usually caps at $99.99
Q: How can I find the ancient device with less searching?

skovacs1I have found the ancient device maybe 5-6 times and seen 4 of the outcomes. To see all 10 for the Wheel of Misfortune achievement and to find all the locations for the Nooks and Crannies achievement, you need to find this thing quite often. I've spent hours of farming Desolate Sands and it barely...

@AshleyNunn man, I wonder how many they sell at that tier, or what level of addicted you'd have to be to a F2P game to drop $100 on it
probably somewhere there's some spoiled rich kid who just adores smurfs or something
@agent86 Probably. Apparently a lot of kids buy them on accident because they dont realize it is legit money
@AshleyNunn Yeah, but iOS now has proper parental control I heard, so there really is no excuse
@YiJiang Yeah, it does. But you know how some people can be - no matter if they have the option to shut that sort of thing down, you are always going to get people complaining about it
2:30 PM
@AshleyNunn I read once a story about a guy whose dog purchased like $100 in MS points or something, with a lucky mashing of the controller. dunno if it was legit or not...
@agent86 That strikes me as a little farfetched
@agent86 I'm going to guess not.
but what do I know, I am more of a cat person
2:39 PM
@agent86 I'd believe it. It's unlikely, but not unthinkable or impossible if the fellow had his credit card information in there set to auto-complete. I haven't purchased MS points in a while - don't they or shouldn't they make you re-enter your card's security code?
@skovacs1 they don't require you to enter credit card info. from the off state, it's more button presses and exact movement than I think could be realistically generated randomly, but I think it's at least slightly plausible.
They barely make you confirm your purchase, let alone ask for actual input...so I could see it, even if it's quite unlikely...certainly not impossible.
2:52 PM
Q: I cant find my friend

mrminecraft3000Me and my friend both play skylanders and we wanted to become friends on skyland but we cant find each over. I am playing on my desktop and he brought his laptop round. We are both in the same area but i cant see him and he cant see me. Is it possible we are on different servers.

Q: Downvoted an answer and MY score went down

C-dizzleI'm trying to figure out why when I downvoted an answer, my score went down as well. I don't see anywhere why that should affect my score.

Q: How to hydrate (jungle) trees?

JeffreyI'm trying to grow a perfect jungle tree in the desert. I tried to grow it with: S S S S D S S S S schema (s = sand, d = dirt) and bonemeal and it grows correctly but is seems rotten or dry. Is there any way to convert the existing one into an hydrated one? how can I grow hydrate trees in the ...

@agent86 That was in 2009. I can't recall what the dashboard was like nor do I know the version that the person was using, but maybe there were fewer steps then?
3:05 PM
I am the .06%!
@skovacs1 I think that was the NXE at that point (ie, post-"blades" interface, but prior to the current... whatever this is... interface) and I think the steps to buy MS points are pretty similar. both times it was an option on the xbox menu, if I recall.
@RavenDreamer eh?
@IanPugsley he's going by his "in the top X% this <time period>" score
@agent86 ah
@agent86 I believe it's always been under settings/account management or when you go to make a purchase on marketplace. I'm just suggesting that those were more accessible then. Right now, through settings, you have to go right all the way (in home or the dashboard) then down some, then A to select. From there, you have to go down some and then A to select a few times. With different order to the entries, the down or right steps could be unnecessary.
3:15 PM
@skovacs1 yeah, beats me :P
I buy points through the dashboard once in a never
usually I buy the cards at a discount and then enter the codes via xbox.com (cause screw trying to use the controller as a keyboard!)

Q: Harvest or Rescue little sisters in Bioshock 2?

edemI just tested it out and it seems that if you harvest a little sister you get 160 adam out of her. If you use her to harvest 2 bodies you get 40-40 each plus you get 80 more when you rescue her at a vent. So it seems that it changed slightly from bioshock 1 where you got less if you rescued the l...

Q: For Wave of Light - Blinding Light, what attacks does it trigger on?

VermisFor Wave of Light - Blinding Light does this trigger on all damage attacks you do (ie. Sweeping Wind), only from activated skill attacks, or is this only triggered by using Wave of Light itself? I'm thinking if this at least works on activated skill attacks and with a decent amount of crit hit c...

@IanPugsley The item is there, but there is no description for it.. Does that mean it really just doesn't do anything?
@Fluttershy is it the matchsticks?
it's not that it doesn't do anything, it's that no one has figured out what it does yet

@IanPugsley on the wiki, Matchstick has the description "Increases the chance of receiving bombs from drops (clearing rooms, enemy drops, etc.)"

Nick122If there was a Psionic Storm placed down over Zerg units, could you burrow them to avoid damage? If not, do they have any kind of reduced damage for being underground?

Q: How can I resurrect my mercenary?

GnomeesI've read in various guides and FAQs that Diablo II mercenaries can be resurrected from the NPC who lets you hire them; however, I can't find the option to do so. I'm in Act II and Greiz only offers the options to talk or to hire a new mercenary. What am I missing?

Q: Can i trust this website? (World Of Warcraft)

Vodahminhttp://www.wow-goldstore.com/Buy-World-of-Warcraft-EU-gold.game.8.aspx I really need some gold and don't want to give out my bank account detail to someone that could be just a scammer.

Already on it
Should add in the FAQ "No questions about Gold-Selling Websites will be burinated. If you don't already know, all those sites are scam."
Those questions won't be butninated? Okay then.
God damn those britts.
@Resorath thanks for the name fix, but "don't" was correct. Abilities "don't", not Fungal Growth "doesn't".

@Fredy What?

WandangIn Diablo 3, I can continue to hit Diablo even if the death animation has already begun. The health bar is not yet empty (around 5% still there) when the death animation begins.

Q: Resurrect a fallen follower

C-dizzleHow long does it take for your follower to respawn? Is there any possibilty of your follower NOT respawning? And is there a way to resurrect your follower faster?

@Lazers Someone should rewrite that title to be less shit.
I can think of one way, but would put the spoilers in the title. I'd rather avoid that if someone who is familiar with the game can make a good spoiler-free title.
@Wipqozn From what I've played, there's nothing you do can prevent her death, as she is dead by the time you get there.
@Wipqozn How's "Is there more than one outcome for Halidrell Setsyn's storyline?"?
@MarkTrapp Sounds good
@Lazers meh, I clicked through hoping for a Deus Ex question

@badp same here l o l o l
also, I can't play online with the ship. Keeps giving me a steam id error. I think windows is blocking it or something equally annoying.
@Wipqozn have you ever managed to connect? even if it's for a few secs? E.g. see server lists
@Krazer I cans ee the server lists, I just can't connect to the servers themselves.
@Wipqozn do you use more than one steam account?
@Krazer No sir.
I think it might be something to do with windows firewall.
I just haven't bothered looking into it
@Wipqozn are you having issues with your other steam multiplayer games?
