comment Stuck in starting room in Stanley Parable
It was not an ending, the narrator was silent the whole time. I have gotten the locked in office ending and it is different.

No, there was an ending like that, but in this case I was in there for 10 minutes and nothing happened.

comment What does the Mitre do?
-1 This is false. Looking at the source code, the only thing affecting chance of angel room is whether you are eligible or not (eligible if you have seen a devil room and not taken a deal), and then the chance is 50/50.

comment How do you avoid bumping into players as a spy?
@Hackworth, Disguised spies have a fake HP and a real HP. I'm pretty sure the fake HP which the enemy team sees heals up at the same rate that it would have as the class you are disguised as. That being said, the fake HP is usually at full health, so calling for medic in that case would be suspicious.

comment Would a monitor with more Hz and a better response time help my game?
@Dave They accomplish such moves through prediction/timing learned through many hours of gameplay. It's not a case of seeing and reacting; if it were, then gamers new to a fighting game should be able to pull off the hard moves pretty quickly after picking the game. Maybe a better monitor helps, but I'm with Aarobot in being skeptical as to it being significant enough to matter.

comment How do you drop the intelligence/Australium?
The command is labeled "Drop the Briefcase" and Kevin is right, it is 'L' by default.

comment Are Hardcore characters gone forever if they die in PvP?
@SirCobalt I believe you can get moderator attention by flagging your question, but please wait until PvP has been released since until that time this is speculation about the future.

The massive adrenaline rush you get every time you have a brush with death.

comment How to play Xbox 360 NTSC-J games in Europe?
This isn't really something gamers would have particular expertise in. Perhaps you could try asking at Super User?

comment How do the damage calculations work in Diablo 3?
This answer is out of date. Physical resistance exists in the release.

comment What is the optimal way to grind the Black Mushroom?
It's always that room and seems to be usually at the bottom of the map -- from what I have seen.

comment Is there a faster way to swap skills than the fullscreen menu?
There's always cheating and using a macro program :p Of course, that still involves opening the menu.

+1 That's a good link.

comment Is there PvP in Diablo 3? How does it work?
Will the PvP maps be procedurally generated like the dungeons I wonder?

comment Proper way to micro Warp Prism and Sentries?
It's weird that it still makes you select a location to unload though.

comment Playing SC2 Replays with double click
+1 Sure enough, it doesn't work if SC2 is already running. Seems like it would be a nice feature to implement -- but for now I'll just keep the replay folder open.

comment Playing SC2 Replays with double click
You are right, it was the patch. It worked when I used more recent replays.

comment Playing SC2 Replays with double click
@Sorean yes, I logged in when sc2 launched. It didn't play the replay. I suspect Ampersand might be right about it being from an earlier patch, I will test tonight when I get home and see if I can get it working with one of my own replays.

comment What build order should I use for Zerg in StarCraft 2?
This is really nasty if your race is random since your opponent will be less likely to anticipate it.

comment Depending on how many vespene geysers I spot at minutes 2 - 5 - 7, which units/upgrades can I exclude?
It is important to note that when you are scouting, you can click on the geyser to see how much gas it has and figure out how long they have been harvesting.
