comment What benefits are there to side with Sabal or Amita?
sounds like you're just stating your opinions on the narrative. the question was about any gameplay benefit to one choice over the other

comment Are games on Steam already up to date after the initial download?
@KonradKapp: the game companies probably look at it more like: with MMOs, we've already gone to the trouble of creating a server infrastructure, and users HAVE to have an internet connection, so we'll manage keeping version up to date and not have to deal with Steam and Gog and whatever other companies. With single player, developer may opt to let Steam keep the game up to date so they don't have to deal with programming the game to connect to some update server and update itself.

comment How do you disable the sound calling makes?
It could still get overwritten on an update. read-only flag is more of a suggestion than a strictly-enforced rule. You could mess around with file security options to make the file truly unmodifiable by a non-admin user, but then you might run into errors when Steam does updates. It seems like this is the best option available without an actual option in steam options, but I wouldn't be surprised if you have to re-do it at least after a major steam update.

comment How do you disable the sound calling makes?
worth noting that with a hack like this, you might see it changing back to the original sound file every time steam updates. or maybe only on major updates. (although this seems to be the only option)

comment How can I use Steam without connecting to Steam's servers?
The question title (how to use Steam without accessing Steam servers) is different from the question body (how to access Steam servers at work when blocked by firewall). The answer to the title question is "use offline mode". The answer to the body question is more complicated. Please edit one or the other so that they are asking the same thing.

comment Why do speed-runners usually use the Japanese version of a game?
Another way of thinking about the frame rate: in older games, a character would typically move a certain distance every frame, regardless of the time between frames. If it takes Mario 60 animation frames to run across a brick, he will do it in 1 second on NTSC, but it will will take him 1.2 seconds in PAL.

comment Is there a narrative reason why Majora's Mask reuses so many art assets?
Thanks! I guess the instruction book is the closest the game ever comes to trying to explain itself

comment How does the in-game time and the day/night cycle work?
This isn't true everywhere... I only get to play this game after the kids are in bed, and I've definitely seen sunlight.
