Find me on Youtube & Steam!


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


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 What does the 'potential' rating do in DexNav search?
Can you upload a picture of the relevant part, or link to an article that says this?

comment What does the 'potential' rating do in DexNav search?
@Guy - we only add the generation tag if the question is generically about the entire generation. DexNav is a new feature exclusive to ORAS

comment Where are the NPC traders in ORAS, and which Pokemon do they offer?
@Chippies - I imagined they would be similar, but it's the 'maybe some more' part I'm interested in :)

So why 3 stars then? does that mean 3/6 IVs are maxed? or is it half a star per stat?

@Psychemaster - I may start compiling it myself in the next couple of days... I just got to the first gym town so I'm sure I'll start running into them.

@Nolonar - I was a bit hesitant asking at first, because I wasn't sure whether it'd go through the whole "It's off topic, hasn't been released" / "Yes it has, in EU" cycle, with a few close & downvotes for good measure.

comment Minecraft PE not saving
Sounds like either it didn't save properly, or you're talking about the animals despawned. Can you clarify a bit?

comment Can rockets be deflected multiple times?
@Powerlord - Nope, I generally just play Capture Point or KOTH. Link YouTube vid?

If this were possible we'd see 'Pyro-Pong' as a minigame :P

@Zommuter - of course, downloading a Download manager is probably gonna have the same problem ;)

comment Does a beam weapon have to hit a crew member - or just the square they're in?
I would like to think that if a powerful laser beam just tore a chunk out of the floor tile you were standing on, it's more than likely gonna cause you some superficial burns as well (at the very least), even just from heat exposure

comment Upgrading from 32 Bit to 64 Bit?
You're right, this is off-topic here. But as to what hardware - any x64 based machine will do. Are you instead asking about whether source games/minecraft run on x64? (they do)

comment Blank screen after explosion in Call of Duty: Black Ops
Hi Andy, welcome to Arqade! I've tried to make your question clearer, but we could use some more info. As TZHX says - are you playing on a console? Xbox/PS3? or are you playing on a computer? Also: What is the name of the mission you are getting stuck on?

@Mr_Monkey622- how did you go? Did it work?

comment 'NoClassDefFoundError' when attempting to launch Minecraft 1.7.2
@Mr_Monkey622 - At the very least attempt to reinstall it (download it again and everything) - It's saying it can't find a class that it relies on - it's possible another mod overwrote it (in which case you might get the same error for the other mod when codechicken writes over it again

Ok, I've added those to the question. Did you install the mods one-by-one, and test if they worked each time? If not, you may have to start from a known working baseline, i.e. Forge, and add a mod, launch, test, repeat. That would be the best thing we can offer to cut down what might be going wrong
