comment How Do You Change Your Minecraft Player Name?
The software and back-end servers can do it as of 1.8, however the ability is not exposed to users yet. I would imagine they are waiting for 1.8 to settle before addressing it.

comment Will a first gen Xbox 360 handle game releases from 2011+?
It's not a PC. It's a fixed platform. Any XBox equals any other with regards to its ability to play games, and they will all play those games with exactly the same apparent performance. Microsoft and games publishers absolutely will not get into a situation where they have to manage the support nightmare of slightly different iterations doing things slightly differently.

comment Am I supposed to have no idea what's going on in the first few hours of play?
A game is making you think and question your morality! What a world we live in! ;)

... and games like Dwarf Fortress do the same to give them a retro feel.

comment What is the different between a character set and a graphic set?
'Character set' as a term comes from the olden days when computers had various 'text mode' displays. For example the original PC had a 40 column by 25 line mode, and each of the screen cells in that could contain one 8x8 character. The 'font' that determined what those characters looked like was often based in hardware, and usually had all the alphanumeric characters plus signs, punctuation, a few with accents and so on. On computers where this was the only type of display, and you couldn't produce 'graphics' at all, or you could but not quickly, many games were forced to use these instead ...

comment Where did the 'pwnage' or 'pwn' or (verb) 'to pwn' come from ?
It's like the "blah blah blah !!!!1!!!!!!" thing, the implication there being a person who is both overexcited and too stupid to hold down the shift key properly.

@Garan Of course it makes sense from a programming perspective, it's called metadata.

comment How can I get jetpacks in GTA 5
It's fake. There is no jetpack in GTA V although I suspect one will show up in DLC.

comment How does skipping taxi rides work?
In other words, to help other viewers of this question, you need to be looking at the taxi in an external vehicle camera view before the skip option becomes available. Hit the 'back' button on the 360 controller.

Sounds plausible, however I'm sure I've skipped from the city to the north coast.

comment How to get my previously owned 3DS games WITHOUT the original system
Yeah I think big operations like GameStop would be very careful in this respect - too easy to get sued.
