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 Terraria freezes on PS3
Hi, is there any more info you can give us? Does the sound stop? Get stuck in a loop? Any error messages pop up? Can you get back to the PS3 menu, or do you need to turn your PS3 off and on again? Does this happen with any other game?

comment Question on setting up a recording/streaming computer
The second question MAY be on topic at Super User, and might have scraped by here if it was a specific game you were having problems with (something we could help with configuring for example), but the first question is definitely off-topic, sorry. Perhaps edit the question to focus on the second point, and it may be migrated to another site?

comment Does the planet Pandora actively turn people insane?
I think it's also worth mentioning Helena Pierce on the 'sane' side of characters - whilst she's a little abrasive when you first encounter her, she improves when the player completes a few jobs around town for her.

comment What is a good setup for a 'Catcher' Pokémon in X/Y?
During the storyline I just used a Farfetch'd with Cut, Fly, Thief and False Swipe, which is all that you really need for 70% of catching and some minimal farming, but yeah the idea of Smeargle was to use it as a perfect catcher after completing the game

comment What moveset should my Skitty have to be useful?
Whilst Helping hand is useful, it's usefulness is limited to double battles. Doubles isn't a huge point in Singleplayer mode, and with most of the major battles (Gyms, Team/Faction Bosses, Elite Four/Champ and Rival) being Singles, you'd be better off running a different move.

"Because that's the way the devs designed it"

comment Pokemon Stats Breakdown
Side Note: IVs and EVs were in Gen 1, but without a breeding mechanism to pass on IVs, and no way to reset EVs without resetting, it made it very hard to get a '6IV Battle Ready' Pokemon of today's calibre.

@Frank - We know you don't agree, but you didn't address Jutschge's main point. Close votes are for keeping community-defined values in alignment. Downvotes are for personal vendettas against a subject matter (or for anything else wrong with a question). By VTC'ing you're pushing against the grain of the community consensus, simply because you don't agree. A Close Vote is not a Super-Downvote. Please don't use it as one

comment What is a 'clutch' in competitive gaming? (Not in the car sense)
@maxywb - I (now) know that it isn't specific to gaming, but I didn't know that before. Either way, the fact that it IS used as a gaming term makes it on topic here. Having overlap with other SE sites is quite common, and yes this question could hold its own on ELU.SE, but I wasn't interested in the full breakdown of the term (i.e. I didn't care what its slang for in New England, no offense), only how it was applied in the gaming world.

comment What is a 'clutch' in competitive gaming? (Not in the car sense)
Ok, so there's an emphasis on the match being close at the end rather than just a particular turning point. That makes sense. So when they say Flygon is a good 'clutch Pokemon' it just means it's a good Pokemon to have around near the end of a close battle, as it is "able to perform well in a very important or critical situation", to use your quote :)

comment What is a 'clutch' in competitive gaming? (Not in the car sense)
So is it a specific turning point in a match that classifies it as a 'clutch play'? or is it the exact moment/action that caused the win? So to take CoD as an example (I don't know MoBAs that well) if someone got the Match Winning Kill, is that a 'clutch kill'? or would it be say, 10 minutes earlier when someone from Team A took out Team B's sniper who was dominating the game up to that point, and Team B couldn't recover?

But they can be changed to other colours such as Blue and pass those colours on via breeding

comment Does Fairy Lock prevent switching or fleeing moves?
Just tested it out - Fairy lock only affects the turn immediately following the move

comment Does Fairy Lock prevent switching or fleeing moves?
Nice video, +1. But does it only affect the turn immediately after, or does it stay in play until the user (klefki) faints? I'm thinking about it's viability on a 'Catcher' style Pokemon. If I hit Fairy Lock before say, Abra teleports, is its teleportation stopped for the rest of the battle? Or if i'm battling Houndour, can I be sure it wont be able to Roar me on the 4th turn after Fairy Lock? Assuming that klefki/smeargle is still in of course

comment I'm stuck in Creative and God mode and lost in the Nether. How can I get out?
Can you get the other player to teleport to the Nether, send you the coordinates, and teleport to those coordinates? If he can get to the Nether then he should be near a portal

comment How do you make a item transporter in minecraft
Hi ViczoidZ, welcome to Arqade! This is a very broad question, we prefer for people to have a go making stuff like this themselves, and come back if you get stuck with a specific problem. So saying that, what research have you done? Is there something specific you don't understand?

Welcome to Arqade! Could you possibly summarise the information provided in the link? That way if the link goes down, your answer will still be useful :)
