comment How to use the HORI Real Arcade Pro EX stick for Xbox 360 in WinKawaks?
Pro tip: never suggest closing to the mods on any stackexchange site! There are always half a dozen or so who are genuinely obsessive about "question purity" and are more than willing to close perfectly legitimate questions for no good reason, so don't tempt them!

comment At what portion of the game will Brute Splicers stop appearing?
Forget Brute Splicers - the Spider Splicers disappearing is a much bigger problem. Researching them is the only way to get the very useful final "fast-movement" tonic, but they stop appearing about half way through the game and don't come back near the end. I was stuck walking slowly the whole game.

comment Can I walk faster?
In Bioshock 2, the first speed boost tonic is acquired easily early on, but for the second you need to do a lot of camera research on spider splicers (the ones that climb on the roof a lot and carry hooks) and they only appear in one or two places in the game, so make sure you get it. I missed out.

comment Using the Mayflash GameCube to USB adapter. All buttons work except the C-Stick?
If you have the [Mayflash PC051]( onehttp://www.mayflash.com/Products/PCUSB/PC051.html), does it support windows 8? does it support rumble? Do wavebirds work?

comment I've finished Bioshock - now what?
I should add, if you want do to hear all the audio logs, but don't have the time to find them in the game, you can find them all online with a little googling.

comment How can I change the location Steam saves games on?
You can't; there's no one place steam saves all your save games too, because most games create save files themselves. Steam doesn't even know where each game puts them. Foolishly, many game developers like to invent new and unexpected places to store you saved games, making it difficult to backup and move them. The exceptions are the new games that support Steam Cloud (once again, it's up to the game what goes into the Steam Cloud, but save files are usually included).

comment How do I destroy tanks in Crysis?
This is a famous gameplay fail in Crysis. It's not clear at all how to destroy the tanks. I shot a couple of missiles then ran out, but didn't bother trying more missiles because they had no visible effect (unlike frag grenades, which at least made the tanks on the back smoke)
