comment How do I make money quickly in Uplink?
You can always see your own bank details on the '$' tab - you don't need to note them down.

comment How to delete my XCom Saves?
In my case when I restarted it synced them back from the steam cloud (!). In the end I deleted them all in-game instead. Deleting them from disk when the game is started seems to work too.

comment How much ammo does an Xcom soldier have in a full magazine/clip?
It varies by weapon I think - rifles seem to have 4 or 5, and heavy weapons only 3. Upgraded: yes, there's a foundry project to give you lots more ammo a bit later in the game.

comment What determines if a soldier is gifted with psionic powers?
Does replacing a not-gifted soldier like this fix them as not-gifted? If it does (I haven't tried) then as a variation on this you could just add one soldier at a time and leave two slots empty, and if they're gifted after 10 days then go back and add a second soldier etc.

comment Is my Kinect facial recognition data saved on the Xbox live cloud?
OK, thanks - I'd read the identity question which doesn't have the 'returned to Microsoft' but missed that. That said, I'd expect that FAQ was written before the cloud feature.

comment Enemy Snipers 1-Shotting me in Mass Effect
@sykora You might be right. I think they use red beams too frequently for that, though - I think it's every sniper shot.

comment Enemy Snipers 1-Shotting me in Mass Effect
I'm fairly sure they do, even on Insanity difficulty level. However I have seen snipers start lining up a shot at one of your team but then shoot you instead if you step out of cover at the wrong moment. I guess if snipers were flanking you enough the red beams wouldn't be so obvious but I don't remember any battles like that.
