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 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.

@ChrisLee, that doesn't answer the question I'm asking.

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.

comment How can I beat the final boss in Faster Than Light?
Alas, in the Advanced Edition, the laser and missile rooms are now connected to the rest of the ship, which makes taking out its weapons with boarders a lot harder than it used to be. (Or so I assume; I didn't even try.)

comment Game Over if all crew dead but have cloning bay?
I've found the same thing to be true. Gotta take out that clone bay, or the battle never ends.

comment How does sector 8 work?
Surprisingly, after several ignominious deaths in Normal mode, I made it through in Hard mode with the Mantis B. I think it's because I was excessively cautious the whole time. Grinding beacons and finishing out the sector on a Rebel-controlled beacon or two isn't a very viable strategy anymore.

comment Can random events kill your last remaining crew member?
Not only can events kill your last remaining crew member, but you can off him/her yourself through dumb decisions. In one game, facing a slaver ship, I only had one crew member, but I decided to offer a crew member to the slaver just to see what would happen. Well...just what did I think would happen? The crewman went over to the slavers, and as my ship had no more crew, my game immediately ended.
