comment Why would you ever want to dash in XCOM? (Rather than making two half moves.)
@RyanJ This is talking about overwatch (reaction shots), where you would get shot at during the half-move. By the time you hunkered it would be too late to receive the bonus

comment Is Advance Wars Days of Ruin compatible with Dark Conflict
Interesting question. The only difference between the two games is the translation so I guess the question comes down to whether the consoles communicate using things that were translated or only IDs

comment Is there a finite amount of Siege Worms and Krakens?
AI player units also prevent them from spawning.

comment Does riding Loid cause it to deal more damage on impact?
This is actually one of the in-game tips

comment Is there a finite amount of Siege Worms and Krakens?
If they can spawn outside nests, they still dont spawn on visible tiles

comment Is there a finite amount of Siege Worms and Krakens?
@Jimmery I think that when the game starts a bunch of aliens are generated anywhere, but following that the "mid-game" spawns seem to be from alien nests only.

comment Does it matter how much excess energy per turn you have when activating the Beacon?
My guess is the reason for the weird wording is that it used to be an amount of energy but was changed when they realized that was unbalanced

comment How can I drain a lake of Xenomass?
Not surprised to see this question, its one of the most annoying things in the game. The game even has a recommended action implemented but it recommends the action that fails the quest.

comment What is a tier list and how do I have to look at it?
This is a pretty good answer, but there is one thing that doesn't belong. The assertion that tier lists usually "take into account how difficult a champion is for a new player" is wrong, tier lists are primarily oriented at high skill players and assume a significant level of experience with champions. But it is good that some champions tier will vary by your actual ELO due to the different nature of play.

comment Is there a way to see what modes I've cleared?
Not sure about the others but classic gives you that fighters trophy when you clear it

comment Should I play Enemy Unknown before Enemy Within?
Only real reason to start with enemy unknown is the lower complexity if you feel uncomfortable with strategy games

comment Is what is inside of an Egg Pre-Determined?
@geobits there isn't a functional difference between the two, either way by the time you get your hands on it its already set

comment Demon Fusion in SMT: Strange Journey
Two demons of the same family create the next strongest in the family, so some fusions create much stronger demons. However the levels are not the primary reason to fuse. That would be the skill transfers mentioned in the answer

comment Is Democracy 3 deterministic?
The game can't be deterministic because some of the monthly events are random, unless it stores the save to prevent you from reloading an event. I don't have the game installed but someone should check if the seed is saved

comment How does the Dynasty mechanic work?
Its mostly a luck based mechanic. The only people who it is remotely reliable for is Austria because they have built in bonuses to it.

comment How to deal with enemies bypassing your forces in Europa Universalis 4?
So both you and they had a substantial amount of modifiers in the warscore window? Basically, if you have a bigger army and decent tech and strategically attack the right provinces you should be able to outrace them even if they are attacking you. If you provide more information I can probably help more. Like who you were playing, army sizes

comment What is the point of trade steering?
@blindy Thanks, but I will need to update this answer for any relevant changes. I haven't had a chance to pick up WoN yet so this is just for prior to that patch

comment What are the differences between a Nintendo 3DS and a Nintendo 3DS XL besides screen size?
Also worth noting, the XL is significantly more comfortable for teen/adult hands. I know several people who experienced significant hand cramps playing on a regular 3DS that was fixed by upgrading to the 3DS XL

comment What does the term “aggro deck” mean?
At this point I have to revise and say that there are some combo archetypes, though they are gimmicky. The reason for this is that combo strategies in games like magic the gathering are reliant upon the ability to search your deck for the cards you need reliably, and this isn't necessarily possible in hearthstone. However the emergence of decks like miracle rogue and alarmobot/innevate does mean that combo decks exist although they suffer from obvious weaknesses caused by the inability to get cards reliably
