Find me on Youtube & Steam, and join Pokétown on Facebook!


Programmer by day, Gamer by night. I love to tinker with things and probably break them in the process.

I'm also Admin Rod on Pokétown - a Facebook group for Pokémon everything! Battles, Trades, Breeding, Discussions, RMTs, Shiny/5 IV Giveaways, etc! Join now! (Be sure to read the rules!)


I'm a PC Gamer mainly, but I also dabble with my PS3 and 3DS. I prefer to play games to relax, so you won't hear me spouting scores and rankings and all that stuff. I'm Currently playing Pokemon X, and loving it.

My Favourite Games (in no particular order) are:

  • Starcraft (1 and 2)
  • Crash Team Racing
  • Pokemon X
  • Minecraft
  • Borderlands
  • Ratchet & Clank Series
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Portal (1 & 2)
  • Fallout 3
  • Worms Armageddon
  • Left 4 Dead (1 & 2)
  • GTA San Andreas
  • Dawn of War 1 (Dark Crusade expansion mainly)
  • Pokemon, all generations

I'm right into emulation of old games & consoles (I still own the originals, but emulation is easier in this day and age)

Consoles/Devices I own:

  • Gameboy Colour
  • Sega Mega Drive (original one and a recent remake they brought out)
  • Playstation 1, 2, & 3
  • XBox
  • PC
  • Laptop (a.k.a the Emulation machine)
  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo 3DS XL

comment Which character will perform the most damage, assuming the same level/gear?
@XDroidie626 - I've edited your title to be more relevant. I've also removed your secondary question, you should ask that as it's own question :)

comment Which comes first? Heart of the Swarm or Wings of Liberty?
@RavenDreamer - really? Weird. It's probably to bring in new players. I guess that they didn't have near enough people purchase both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm when the latter came out, and they don't want to lock People into buying effectively 3 copies of the same game.

No problem, glad I could help :)

comment What are the Warcraft II Cheats?
You don't have to write the disclaimer, answering your own question is encouraged if it helps other people :). Just be careful with these list-type questions, they can be frowned upon if they're too open-ended.

Cool. That'd be awesome :)

It'd be great if they offerred a 'no-UI' version that only installed the drivers

+1, I also moved to BetterDS3 of late (side note: there was a workaround for the 'always online' MotioninJoy thing which was to download and use the 'offline pages'... Not sure if it's still an option in the latest versions)

comment How can I soft reset?
Awesome! I couldn't find anything when I searched :). I've removed the part from my answer which says you can't, and pointed to yours for how to do it :)

comment What's wrong with my minecraft?
Is there a Java process running? Check Task Manager. It's possible that it's frozen in some sort of state. If you can't find it in Task Manager, try restarting your computer.

@pinckerman found this to confirm Giratina is resettable, however it lists Deoxys as 'unknown'. Do you have a source?

comment How can I teach Gengar a skill to make enemies fall asleep?
@FezVrasta From a competitive standpoint, Hypnosis isn't that great of a move due to its low accuracy. If you're building a Gengar for competitive reasons, it might be better to to leave the Sleep to another Pokemon, and let Gengar do what it does best - sweep with its array of high power, good coverage Special-Attacks

comment Why are Steam's “hours played” numbers wrong for so many games?
@z' - Just a note on the OBSE, you can probably trick Steam into running the OBSE.exe by renaming it to be the OblivionLauncher.exe (renaming the original to OblivionLauncher-orig.exe for example). I did so for Fallout 3 (Oblivion is based on the same engine)

comment Is there a formula to calculate EVs?
@alejandro-bar - There isn't a formula to calculate them per-se, but depending on the game you're playing it can be calculated using tricks in-game. You're not playing the latest generation, you've mentioned that already, but specifically which generation/game are you playing?

comment Is it possible to get “stuck” in Pokemon?
You can get out using an Escape Rope or failing that, run into wild Pokemon until you faint or struggle yourself to death. Not quite stuck, but definitely an arduous task getting out.

comment Where can I EV train with Hordes in ORAS?
Nice. Are they the 'common' horde encounter though? (I.e. there'd be little point if you had to run from 10 hordes to get a Skarmory horde for example) :)
