If you spend your time finding two-or-three-year-old questions to close, perhaps it's a sign that you need a real hobby. (One would think, if you post here, that gaming would be enough of a hobby.)

I mostly play old stuff. The last few weeks, I've been obsessed with Roller Coaster Tycoon. How did I miss this game back in the day!? I bought it and RCT2 from Good Old Games. I haven't even run RCT2 yet, because I'm having too much fun with the original.

I used to be a big Blizzard fan, but they jumped the shark with the StarCraft II EULA. Diablo III will not be getting my money:

  • A company doesn't have a right to tell me I can't play their game offline without logging into their server first.
  • A company doesn't have a right to require that each member of a household buy the game over again in order to play the "full" game.

Back in the days of spawning, with WarCraft II, Diablo, and StarCraft, Blizzard was a great company. Greed has ruined them.

comment Does killing Pigs raise Naughtiness as Webber?
Of course, the next question is, what happens when spiders Webber controls kill a pig? I'd guess that you don't get naughtiness from that...but clearly it needs to be tested.

Or he's just misremembering? The brain is a strange beast. I've had mine convince me I did things that, in fact, I only thought about.

comment What is the penalty for being cloned?
Another way to look at it is that any skill is decreased by as close to 10% as possible without going over 10%. (10% because, remember, there are two levels of skills.) If repair or combat took off one more skill point, that would push the percentage over 10% of the total (4/36 for repair = 11%; 2/16 for combat = 12.5%).

comment Game Over if all crew dead but have cloning bay?
@ChargingPun, based on what I've seen recently, I think that bug has been fixed, so that you only get fighting experience once for beating an enemy no matter how many times he clones.

comment How do I build a Lureplant farm?
Eyeplants also don't grow on rocky turf. It may be that they don't grow on any turf that other plants (such as pine trees) don't grow on.

comment What's the objective in Adventure Mode (inside Maxwell's Door)?
@rlb.usa, I was under the impression that you can't take anything with you when you go through Maxwell's Door, except special character items like Lucy.

comment Will Touchstones be wasted if I touch more than one before death?
By the way, it's not a bad idea to drop some grass and logs at a Touchstone. When you respawn, you'll have no inventory at all, and if it's the middle of winter, you might well freeze and then die a second time before you can get back to your base. So leave at least enough materials to make a fire.

comment How do I deal with hacking drones?
However, be cautious. Hacking their hacking system can potentially blow up their hacking drone...which can then fire again, onto a more damaging part of your system.
