comment Is there a reason for the specific symbols and letters on the controllers?
@rapitor answerability is not the metric by which we evaluate questions.

comment Why didn't Siris/Ausar die in the first Infinity Blade itself?
@Arperum being a lore question isn't a free pass against our other standards. Lore questions that are fundamentally speculative/Dev intent based are just as off topic as "why did my favorite item get nerfed."

comment How can I legally purchase games for an arcade cabinet I'm making?
You state it yourself with your first caveat. The law explicitly refers to "noncommercial use". It's not my problem if you don't understand that the generally accepted definition of that term does not simply mean "not charging to play the game."

comment How can I legally purchase games for an arcade cabinet I'm making?
there is a difference between putting out a board game (or, for example, hooking up a Playstation with a legit game in it), and making use of a specific fair use provision to make a copy for explicitly and specifically non-commercial use.

comment How can I legally purchase games for an arcade cabinet I'm making?
I'm super busy at the moment, but in short, placing a game cabinet in a place of business, even under free-play, as an inducement for customers to come in or stay (i.e. In a bar), is inherently 'commercial use', regardless of whether the cabinet itself is actually directly generating revenue.

This is not strictly accurate legal advice.

comment How can I get to this area as a marine in System Shock 2?
I'm certain. The point is atmosphere. And also to taunt you. And maybe an accident? Who knows.

comment Is a charismatic build really worth it?
Are you specifically interested in whether a high score in Charisma is worthwhile? Or are you more generally interested in the value if social skills like speech and barter?

comment Putting a password on a Xbox 360 game
@NoneOfYourBusiness I'm not sure that's a better method at all; the parental controls provided by the Xbox are quite robust, and certainly much easier to turn on and off on demand than a scheduled IP block set up from a router.

comment Will 3rd party USB-Ethernet adapters work with my Wii?
@Frank that was clearly something of a special case... Regardless, a more narrow question like "Do I need to use a Nintendo specific USB to Ethernet adapter, or will a generic one work?" (And if so, do I need to jump through any hoops and what are they) would be fine. The issue here is that the question is so broad as to be meaningless, not that it is fundamentally off topic.

comment Will 3rd party USB-Ethernet adapters work with my Wii?
I think, as written, this is just too vague to be useful; You'd be better off asking about Wii and Xbox (and PS) accessories separately - and ideally, about specific categories thereof.

comment What was the urine joke all about?
Sure. And this question isn't about the video game, it's about this comic strip. Last I checked, Diablo tie-in novels, Sonic the Hedgehog Fanfiction, and the old Super Matio Bros. Super Show (RIP Captain Lou!) are all off topic as well.

comment What was the urine joke all about?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a comic strip, not a video game or it's content.

comment Why did this explosion make me fat? (A land mine increased my weight)
I know next to nothing about Nethack; it was just a supposition from first principles of RPG experience is all.

Are you sure it increased the weight you're carrying, and didn't reduce your capacity?

comment How do I sell my Elder Scrolls?
If you can't drop or store them, then they're still considered quest items and the weight doesn't count against your encumbrance, regardless of the displayed weight of the item.
