comment (How) Is it possible to get the full version of a game if I can only buy its low violence version?
Maybe this doesn't help but: personally, if any game that I'd legitimately bought had some annoying problem with it, I think I'd simply pirate a working version of it without any concern for whether that was technically legal or not. Can't see how you can get a ban doing that (though multiplayer games are different, I guess).

@Aarobot No probs. I'm curious about the other details too, but since no-one else has answered yet (and I don't know any more than I've said) I thought I'd bump the question by saying what I do know (activity on the question can increase exposure and so attract more answers).

comment What are the easiest PC keyboard controls for the Assassin's Creed series?
Come on, people! Just buy a decent gamepad. A good PS2 dualshock style controller costs about $5 on ebay. USB adapters for top quality console controllers you probably already own start from about $3. If your gaming rig cost you $1000, that's about 0.5% of your investment. Would you use an old yellow composite AV cable with your $2000 HDTV? (This is off-topic, but I see this all the time and had to vent. Sorry).

comment Why is my PS3's internet so slow compared to my computer?
It's really easy to run an ethernet cable through the roof and down the inside of the wall. Definitely no special skills or handyman experience required. Did it when I was a kid (prior to wireless).

comment What are the best laptop screen resolutions for gaming on a PC?
If you mostly use it for work/browsing and only occasionally game (and don't have an external high-end CRT to hook it up to) get a high res. If it's mainly for gaming, no point going for highest res only to have to go fuzzy for every game.

comment What are the best laptop screen resolutions for gaming on a PC?
+1 do consider this. A newer game at only 1024x768 but with all the AF and effects turned on looks much better than at 1920x1080 with the effects switched off. There will always be new games coming out that tax your hardware, where you'll have to choose one or the other. Running a game on an LCD at anything lower than it's native resolution is going to look fuzzy. Try it out and decide what's important to you.

comment How can I emulate keyboard and mouse commands with a game controller?
Thanks. I've now bought xPadder, very happy. For people finding this later: xPadder is much easier to use (thanks to the controller images allowing you to see which button is where) and for some reason works on games where controlMK fails or only partially works. Most people can probably make do with the free version above.

comment How do I perform directional inputs for Street Fighter 4 on a PC Keyboard?
Off-topic, but please buy a controller. You can get a decent one for as little as $5, and a good usb adapter for a snes controller for under $25. That's probably about 1-2% of what your PC cost you.
