comment Sonic the Hedgehog 2 cartridge not working on an ATGames Mega Drive?
I'm voting to close this question because it is believed to be a cartridge problem, and the OP no longer has the cartridge in question. Thus any attempt at debugging this issue is now moot

comment Are there any other “negative” achievements in TF2 besides Consolation Prize?
@TuttiFruttiJacuzzi - You're backstabbing Razorbacks to throw them off their game. You can still move even when your knife is stuck, so make a getaway and cloak when you can. Even if you don't kill them, the Sniper will be spooked and constantly be checking his back, and NOT sniping your team. Furthermore, the Razorback can only be replenished at spawn, so if he wants to reset he has to go back. Either case (spooked or running back to spawn) is just as good for your team as if he was killed.

comment Legal ways of playing old games that aren't for sale any longer
The last part of this answer is now obsolete: Earthbound is now available for the Wii U. Also Wikipedia: "In 2013, EarthBound was reissued and given a worldwide release for the Wii U Virtual Console following many years of fan lobbying, marking its debut in many territories including Europe."

comment Server doesn't load after joining on Minecraft: Pocket Edition?
What version of Minecraft is your friend running? Do they have the iOS or Android version? Can they join a game if you host on your iOS version?

@Studoku - Uh, it kinda does - the other answers are out of date and this one is an answer, although it'd be better if it were more fleshed out. @ Ryan - any chance you could expand on this? Link to the Steam store? Maybe some screenshots?

Thanks :). Also - I think it's pretty good now, if the OP wants more info you can always edit more :)

comment How can I sell items for a higher profit?
@Timelord64 - Further to what Frank says - the OP of this question doesn't have closing privileges yet, thus the actual "close" action is handled by the "Community User" - which in essence is just a user representing the system's processes. If Scott had enough reputation to vote for closure, his name would be shown instead of 'Community'.

It makes me wonder if changing the Trainer ID on Gold/Silver to match the one on Red would allow this to work

comment How to play old games from the 1980s / 1990s in 2015 legally
@fabriced - No, I'm saying to leave downloading of Roms out of it because it's a legal grey area which may or may not be legal in your area, which we don't support here. Focus on what is definitely, 100% legal, everywhere, which is buying "legitimate" copies.

I'd vote to reopen based on those grounds, because I believe it's answerable in that format, but it'd be up to others as well, like @ Mazura or @LessPop_MoreFizz to vote as well.

comment How to play old games from the 1980s / 1990s in 2015 legally
@fabriced - Well, pretty much the crux of your question would be the title: 'What legitimate avenues are there to play old games?'. You could explain in the body that you wish to purchase and play old(er) games and were wondering what options you have for legitimate copies of games. Make a point about not downloading ROMs because you want to use legitimate copies. Answers could then focus on rereleases (Nintendo Virtual Console etc), OG hardware (buying a NES etc) or New hardware (Retron 5 etc).

comment How to play old games from the 1980s / 1990s in 2015 legally
I suppose it's all a bit moot then. The question will remain closed unless it's edited to focus on the practicalities (in doing so removing the ethical/legal side of things), and you refuse to edit it, so that's about it. You may be better off asking the question on Reddit or similar if you feel the legality/ethicality side of things needs to be hashed out alongside this, but it isn't something that fits in our format well. Either case, best of luck getting the answers you want :)

@Less - fair enough. I thought the title was pretty clear (and the answer to the question at the end of the body is 'capitalism' :-P)

comment How to play old games from the 1980s / 1990s in 2015 legally
I don't get how this is opinion-based: OP's options are to either buy the games again using various game stores as they are rereleased (Steam, GOG, PSN, XBL, Nintendo Virtual Console etc), or dust off their old cartridges and get a Retron 5 (or equivalent). Note that when purchasing cartridges - most (all) are 'out of print'/not being manufactured any more, so you'll have to purchase them preowned from EBay, thrift shops etc

comment Why did my campaign pass expire?
Are your items in the backpack? It's possible the TF2 Item servers are stuffing up again. Also I don't think the contracts are all done: I've done every contract (including bonus points) so far and only have a silver coin, not a gold one
