comment Dwarves meet Immovable Object
I love the question title. I actually imagine Dwarves being quite irate at not being able to move a rock; even taking it as a personal challenge.

comment how to identify BUC of item in nethack
Sigh. I vote to reopen, but in trying to explain my reasoning, I convince myself the other question needs to contain all the knowledge on both points. I felt the other was more about item type (Scroll of Identify VS Scroll of Polymorph), but the "without killing myself" part means we MUST talk about blessed/cursed as well.

comment What are some good opening strategies for Robo Defense?
Remember to buy upgrades too. The best opening strategy will not help if your starting guns are too weak to kill the first guy! (That's probably not at level 3, but pretty soon after that.)

comment Does the AI cheat?
This may appear to be the case but I'm willing to bet that this is a bad conclusion from observing the computer get more Minerals/SCV/time. I'd bet the real effect occurring is the AI carefully sending each SCV to a different available Mineral patch, which human players don't have the time to micro. But if this is observable on Gas, then my theory is wrong and maybe this is true.

+1 for suggesting a way to verify your answer. I wish I had thought of that. :(

comment Where can I find the Official list of current Battle.net chat commands?
This is a step in the right direction. The classic list being found first makes me more concerned that @Brandon's answer is correct.

comment Where can I find the Official list of current Battle.net chat commands?
Possible on Starcraft I suppose, but they can't have removed all those commands from WoW! I will test some of the old ones in SC2 tonight.

comment Does multiplayer gaming with StarCraft 2 support all three races?
The race choice of "Random" is of course still an option.

@Grace Note But raw cocatrice is the best! After eating it, you never want to eat anything else! ;)

Yellow Mold is the most common hallucination monster I can recall. Also, leprechauns cause teleportitis: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/430/…

comment How to signal on the minimap in Starcraft 2?
The ping shows an exclamation mark that is the same color as your units, so everyone on your team can tell it was you that pinged.

Yay for cited info! Although I believe this is the link you were looking for: stowiki.org/Deepspace_K7 (Yours took me to the wiki "page not found".)

comment How do I do a Barrel Roll?
L is not easily accessible the way the N-64 controller is usually held. I believe Z is the other control usual listed for barrel roles. Does L also work?

@en1gmatic325 That sounds quite plausible.

comment Mnemonics to remember Starcraft 2 Building Hotkeys
Uhoh. I did not verify the shortcut list Elpezmuerto posted. My quick research (can't load up the game at work) supports this: starcraft2freaks.com/starcraft-2-hotkeys-list So much for my mnemonic. Anyone have an idea why they changed it, considering nothing else uses P?

These are reasons each race is good, not reasons the race is good to learn with.

These comments are going down a pretty subjective path...
