I play only a few games competitively.

  • Starcraft 2
  • Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

Once in a while I play other games, but I do not spend much time on them. I like to delve into a game until I understand all concepts and strategies that make it work.

Some of my favorite games are:

  • Warcraft III
  • Half Life
  • Phantasy Star IV
  • Fallout 1, 2 & 3

I hate MMORPGs and think they are a waste of time, especially WOW.

comment Can I control which nuke will be launched?
That is correct but you can use it to gain a better position. If your opponent has sieged you can use a nuke to force him unsieging his tanks. Either he stays and dies from the nuke or he unsieges, you cancel the nuke and stim into his tanks. I knew it is possible to cancel nukes, but not up to which point. Well now I know :)

Yeah it does not matter. Another bonus I found during this is that you can cancel the nuke with ESC as long as you see the red dot.

Maybe you could make a suggestion for Blizzard to change that. Still this is only significant if the silos are in 2 different locations (e.g. main base and 4th base). But I doubt they will fix it, because there are so few scenarios that will profit from this. You need to be in a base race scenario and have multiple nukes in different places. Thats like 1 out of 1000 games, and that is even a generous estimation. :)

comment Building a gaming cabinet/machine
I found this site: arcadecab.com/Intro.htm, although I personally would go with an easy solution. Buy 1 Monitor, 2 Matcatz TE sticks, 2 chairs and and a cheap computer table. Screw the sticks into the table... done. Cost about 200 + 2 X 100 + 2 * 25 + 50 about 500 bucks if you go for second hand.

I am not sure how you can search for a replay, it might take some time. Usually it takes about 5 minutes for your replay to be displayed in "Public Replays", as the site has to extract the information (APM etc.). You could go back and look for the specific date.

comment Options for playing Xbox Live on a strict public internet connection
@EBongo: I agree that speed is often misused as throughput, but what I mean is the time one packet needs to go from your computer / xbox to its destination. As far as I am concerned speed is km/h or mph not kb/s the later one is throughput or bandwidth.
