My Raptr Profile where you can find links to all my various platform profiles, including Steam, as well as see how many hours of my life I've sunk into this hobby. Feel free to add me, but please message me and let me know you're from Gaming.SE.

Gaming.SE blog where I mostly edit, but sometimes contribute.

Platforms I own:

  • Nintendo Wii
  • Nintendo DSLite
  • Nintendo 3DS
  • XBox 360
  • Playstation 3
  • Playstation 2
  • Sony PSP-2000
  • Playstation Vita
  • PC, Windows 7

Genres I enjoy:

  • MMORPGs (City of Heroes, Guild Wars 1 & 2, various F2P MMOs)
  • RPGs (Final Fantasy series, BioWare games)
  • Music/Rhythm games (Rock Band/GH series, Audiosurf, Beat Hazard)
  • TBS (Civilization series)
  • RTS to some extent (Age of Empires, Command & Conquer, not a big StarCraft player)
  • Simulation/God games (Anno series, SimCity, Tropico, Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius)
  • Action/Adventure (Zelda series, ICO/SotC, God of War series)
  • Arcade racers (Burnout series)
  • 3rd person open world sandbox games with exaggerated physics/reality (seriously, this practically a genre unto itself now... Prototype, Infamous, Crackdown, Saints Row series, Just Cause 1/2, Arkham Asylum/City)
  • weird, quirky indie games whose qualities I have trouble quantifying (Recettear, The Void, The Path)
  • Basically nearly anything except for sports games like FIFA/Madden/UFC/etc.

comment Do emblems give bonuses or are they just for show?
The event emblems are an exception. Having the emblems equipped during bounty turnins during Queen's Wrath and Iron Banner did give bonuses.

comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
Note that you can only hold a maximum of 200 Crucible Marks in your inventory, the same as the Vanguard Marks' maximum. This isn't noted on the wiki. Friend of mine found that out the hard way.

comment What is the best race for Elementalist for WvW?
I don't agree with closing this question, as there are only 5 races and 6 racial skills per race, so it's not too broad, IMO. Additionally, this question would fall under Good Subjective. @vasili111 However, providing more detail to your question can be helpful. Do you know what kind of preferred playstyle you have (zerging, seigeing, small stuff like hitting up camps, yak runs, etc.) or are you looking for more general utility? Being more specific can help people answer your question better.

comment Is it possible to get different Ghosts?
The Frontier Shell is not just for the Ghost Edition. It's included in the Limited Edition and Digital Guardian Editions as well.

@Koviko As someone who has done this for a bunch of puzzles, yep.

comment Where is the Vanguard Armory?
You can actually start buying them at level 5 and they will scale up to level 10 the next time the store resets its counter after you've hit 10. They're definitely better at level 5 than anything else I picked up on Earth in drops.

comment Is there an Animal Crossing City Folk face guide?
@Frank This is actually a very answerable question. There's only a total of 24 faces and the method of determining them is very straightforward. This wouldn't end up as something like a walkthrough guide or anything like that, it's just a chart.

comment Are Playstation 4 games locked to a certain region?
@Ozmah The way to get around it is to make an EU account that you keep on the same PS3. Your NA account will have access to anything downloaded on the PS3 with the EU account. For example, mine is NA and my boyfriend's account is EU. Our copy of The Last of Us is EU so we have an EU season pass. DLC is downloaded through his account, I log into my account and can then play the DLC. Unfortunately, yes, your purchases well be split across 2 accounts, but there's no other way, as account's can't change region out be multi-region.

comment Are Playstation 4 games locked to a certain region?
@Ozmah Note that your store access will still be bound to whatever region your current PSN account is. I'm presuming since you're from Mexico that you have a NA account. You will still only have access to the NA store. If you want to buy from the European store, you'll have to make another account. Also note that games that you buy will have EU DLC codes and Cross-Buy codes will also be EU. I have a NA account and run into this problem as well.

comment Are there a limited number of Oculi?
I'm a little confused at what you're saying "yes" to, as the asker's last sentence was an "or" statement and the title asks if there is a limited number, but your answer implies there is not. Can you clarify?

comment Are upgrades per character?
@AshleyNunn Yeah. :( It's one of the design decisions that's been received rather poorly.

comment Are traps supposed to have false positives now?
@Yamikuronue Yeah, I sometimes end up having to pick them up and drop them a few times before they're in just the right spot. I try to make it so the stick is as close to the hole as possible.

One of the core messages of the "Let's be nice to each other" post was that a lot of the onus is on regular users to encourage a welcoming/friendly environment. You're one of (currently) 5 candidates who are sub-10k and have no experience with the site's moderation tools. With your current privileges, you can still flag for other mods to do cleanup, and when you hit 10k, you can do even more. Given those points, I'm unsure why you want to be a mod over simply increasing your rep. Other candidates also have other moderating and community management experience. How do you stand out?

@Wipqozn Thanks for clarifying some of your points. So am I correct in assuming that handling user conflicts/problems is your primary platform? What qualities would you say you have to be able to handle this adeptly? You have fairly high Meta activity as a regular user. How active would you continue to be on Meta in regards to policy shaping discussions and how comfortable would you feel stepping up to enact the results of those discussions? Would you become more or less vocal/proactive in comparison to how you handled things as a regular user?

@LessPop Thought of something else. As Sterno mentioned, you're well known for your candor, for good or ill, and in addition to that, a sense of humor that extends to mocking/trolling Area 51 proposals that you find personally questionable and/or ridiculous. With a diamond by your name, you're a representative of our site as a whole, as you're well aware. Is this an activity you would continue to partake in were you to be elected or would you curtail it in light of becoming a moderator?
