I'm working as a QA Engineer currently. I left being a developer about 2 years back so that I could have more time to play games. I have been a hardcore gamer my entire life and loved it.

I started playing games with my 386 (like accolade, barbarian, lame pacman, prince of persia, Wolfenstein(at my friends place on his 486 ;) )).

Pentium 1: text games, monkey island, evil days of luckless john, red baron, evil genius ;) etc. you name it. I've played it. not to mention the common games.

nintendo (8 bits): a pretty huge no. of games - can't list em.

sega (16 bits): again a pretty huge no.

pc/lappy: My current favs include series - Assassins Creed, Prince Persia, Monkey Island , Sam and Max, Call of Duty, Splinter cell, Star wars (action ones) - all series...

Its going to be a very very huuuuge list.

@kotekzot Ya thanks for telling me. I was quite surprised when I read about this elsewhere sometime back.

Another method is start your cloaking device as soon as you see them about to leave their ship. Meanwhile your weapons will charge up. Direct everything you have at their tele system.

comment Tips for killing enemy crew without use of boarding parties
@kotekzot What do you think is the use of killing the crew members? AFAIK even if the entire crew is destroyed but the hull isn't the ship can continue to exist. Eventually you have to take down the hull. Moreover, suppose in the process of killing crew members you didn't take out their weapon system then the ship will continue to fire even without any crew.

comment Can I back up and restore my FTL save file?
Not true. It does mention the exact save file in that folder.

comment Can I back up and restore my FTL save file?
I would say go ahead and use not only save scumming but also memory cheats (like tsearch or cheat engine). Once you've satisfied your curiosity about completing the game you can keep playing it without any saves/cheats. :P

comment How to adjust the controls for NFS Shift to deal with a braking problem
I was wrong. The controls do nothing for the keyboard. The dead zone is basically how much angle you can move the joystick around from the center without having any effect and the sensitivity is the setting for how much change in turning intensity is measured for slight changes in the joystick controls.
