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 What happens to units and buildings if they get “buried” under destructible rocks?
There is a popular HOTS map that has destructible rocks at the 3rd so that the rocks fall exactly at the optimal expansion placement (where you would place your nexus or hatch). I cannot remember the name, I can look it up later.

@Wilerson Can you summarize the link and add it as an answer, then I will up vote you and if nothing better comes up I will accept your answer.

I have followed the link and it seems that the rocks cause 500 damage, which kills every unit and damages most buildings without destroying them. I am not certain if armor negates some of the damage, so perhaps an Ultralisk could barely survive that with all upgrades.

comment What are the units in Age of Mythology saying?
Just as a side note: The link provided suggests that the languages are Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Norse. This means there are probably no online dictionaries available for this.

Well there are pre order beta keys available in most countries.

comment Is there any way to get the original Fallout and Fallout 2 working on a Mac?
Just install VMWare with Win98 and install the games. WinXP works too with all Fallout patches. The main problem is that those games are very buggy to begin with.

comment Do I need to pay for a Teamspeak server?
This is correct, but this will increase your delay significantly. The main purpose to use Teamspeak is so no user has to keep and maintain the connection to every other user. Your scenario might work for a few users, but will not scale to 50 people raid groups.

comment What should be the first target for Mutalisks?
If you go for Overlords it is wise to stick to a few Mutas (about 6). Your opponent is forced to invest in a lot of static defenses and if you have too many Mutas (now) you might loose to a later push.

comment Will learning how to touch type make me a better player?
I disagree. Do you actually know how much APM you need for the perfect stutter step with Marines? Its 240-360 and I will argue that you are more effective with a perfect stutter step compared to A-moving your Marines into Zerglings. Empiric evidence suggest that you need high APM to be a pro gamer (Read: You need more than 40 APM to be able to win MLG or other tournaments).

comment What is better for Stalkers: 1 Armor + 1 Shield or 2 Armor?
If they are almost the same you might get a benefit from going +1 Shields first to get the Micro benefit and later add +1 Armor. But your conclusion is better if you just look at the numbers after the two upgrades.

comment How do I play Empire Earth 1 in Windows 7?
A solution that almost always does the trick for old games: Use a Virtual Machine. Install the required OS (in your case Windows 98 or XP) and the game. Everything should work just fine.

You only need one Wireless Gaming Receiver. It supports up to 4 Wireless Controllers.

Props to you for finding this information. I modified your answer, as it needed only some tweaking.

comment How do I insert symbols in “Games for Windows Live” messages?
Is this definitely not possible? I mean there are many custom fonts, like Windings that might include this symbol. MS could use a custom font for Games for Windows Live.

comment Strategies for playing Guile against Ken/Ryu?
This is a Ryu guide for the matchup, but you can still use the information. It is from Canada's best Ryu player AirRyu. It might be a bit dated, but the information still applies.

comment Can I use a game controller to play Diablo 3?
Well please prove me wrong. I dislike people just claiming something is wrong. I am quite sure that all my points are valid. The answer "No..." might be open to discussion, depending on the limitations you are willing to accept.
