comment What's the objective in Adventure Mode (inside Maxwell's Door)?
@Kyralessa you are right. The wiki dont-starve-game.wikia.com/wiki/Guides/Adventure_Guide gives a great tip of building structures but not placing them.

comment What's the objective in Adventure Mode (inside Maxwell's Door)?
Generally the consensus is to wait to go through Maxwell's Door until you have a Chester-A-Base, that is, a Chester filled and ready for your new base inside the very harsher world. Some new players prefer to hold off the Door until they feel confident they can survive in Sandbox (especially Winter).

Excellent! The product has mixed reviews and currently scores 4/5. Here's the amazon link to anyone who sees this: amazon.com/Sea-Band-Adult-Wristband-Color-1-Pair/dp/B001F731N0/…

comment Are any of the Harvest Moon games multiplayer?
You might also enjoy a LAN indie game, FarmHands : freelangames.net/2012/09/farm-hands.html . You'd need something like Hamachi to set it up, but it's most enjoyable aspect is figuring out what everything does and finding all the features.

comment Where can I get dragon bones and scales without killing dragons?
@Josh, that's not true. Dragon encounters can and do occur while traveling the roads.

comment Trouble getting to sleep after gaming session
Another thing that this suggestion does is create a "bedtime routine". Just knowing that there is a routine and being on it helps you to wind down much faster than suddenly deciding to sleep.

comment Trouble getting to sleep after gaming session
One of the reasons this works so well is that experts theorize that looking at screens - your ipad, monitor, etc - right before bed makes it harder for you to go to sleep. So, avoiding your electronics should help immensely.

I don't think that the health tag belongs here.

comment Is there any way to get a refund for a game bought from Steam?
Just because you can't play the game doesn't constitute a refund. Silly me downloaded a game and couldn't run it at all (game didn't like my laptop GPU). Steam says "Refund because you can't play the game? Haha. Um, no."

comment How can I prevent Gaming Sickness?
Yes, it did improve - but each person is different. A combination of all the suggestions is what worked for me, specifically: Playing in a well-lit environment, a much brighter screen, brightening my game options, and playing in maximized mode. I noticed that with minimized windows, I was always leaning closer to see. To force myself to retain a good distance from the screen, I switched to a non-wheeled chair. I've also upgraded to a newer computer since then (8fps games are now 40fps) and that has been extremely helpful.

comment Do I actually need my housecarl?
Also note that having a follower can be extremely useful when fighting dragons.

comment Ustengrav Depths gates: can my follower follow?
On PC the gates would never stay open for me. My follower waited behind. After I completed the objective, the cave looped around and my follower was there waiting for me at a point earlier in the caves.

comment How to clean dust and spider webs in my house?
If you're strapped for cash, you can always buy an upgrade and then sell all the extras it comes with, for example all kinds of food and dishwares.

comment Skyrim crashes on start. Do I need a new sound card?
You may also want to check that your video card settings are set to actually use the proper video card. For example, mine was set by default to use the integrated instead of my gpu.

I had this same experience in Skyrim and corrected it by always playing in a lit room with the brightness up to 100%, and on the 3rd person POV.

Exception: carrying a sorcerer tower gem will always make you fly slower.

comment I'm not powerful enough to continue the main quest(s). What can I do?
Changing the difficulty to the lowest setting doesn't remove the problem of the Snow Troll appearing, and at a low level, he will still one-shot you if he gets a hit in.
