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.

comment How do you prevent Sims from aging?
The default ageing system in Sims2 really kills your joy in the game. They take 3 hours for a bath and 2 hours just to eat? Wth! There's no time left at all if an ageing system is also present.

comment Is there any benefit gained from reading or collecting all the volumes of a book series?
Would just like to add that there might be some book in the collection that actually gives you skill increase like some volume 7 of something. But besides that collecting everything is pretty worthless unless you actually planning on reading them.

comment Why am I unable to use dragon souls to unlock dragon shouts?
@Ben I read the answers and your comments on them. It sure sounds like a bug. Did you try saving/reloading then trying again?

Oh forgot to mention that moving my mouse around right-and-left also worked for me.

comment Can we get robbed of gold in Skyrim?
Yep. Pretty sure cause I don't buy anything cause I feel we can always get it sooner or later.

comment Can we get robbed of gold in Skyrim?
Thanks. It most probably must be a glitch in that area. I think so because I had 2 save files with the only difference between them being that I sat on a chair and did nothing but "wait" for 2 days (yes I saved before waiting and after waiting too, and yes, I'm a saving freak). A difference of gold was introduced in this waiting.

comment How do you swordfight in Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn?
Thanks. Never would have guessed that. For some reason it takes a lot of time before he actually attacks. I guess that's why I couldn't figure it out.

comment What do you do about running out of ammo in Borderlands?
Good point. But we need a good way to level up. We can probably keep trying/dying in the process described in the question and we'll also level up that way I guess.

comment What do you do about running out of ammo in Borderlands?
Thanks for telling me about this. In my playthrough I didn't really come accross anything about ammo regeneration though it would be fun to come accross.

comment How can I make the military's life harder? (In Just Cause 2, that is)
@Steve I think the effect only happens if you've blown up everything in an area. Once you've achieved 100% in an area there will be no military there. It could be related to that?

comment How to adjust the controls for NFS Shift to deal with a braking problem
@Anna Lear The braking assist is tied with the steering assist. Either you have both assists or none.

I cannot find any config file that will do what you are asking. Have you seen any file like this?

comment How to adjust the controls for NFS Shift to deal with a braking problem
@Anna Lear Ah! That was the very first thing I tried to do. Unfortunately, when we select Casual, the settings for brake assist are greyed out. So we cannot alter them.

comment How do we unlock “locked urban chests” in Venetica?
I don't understand which coffin you are talking about. <SPOILERS>.................See if you can switch to the twilight world and try the coffin. Later on you get the ability to lockpick so you might also want to try that (it kicks in automatically actually when you click). Last of all if nothing works you might want to see if you can break it with a hammer.

I fiddled around with those two settings and it actually does seem to have an effect on the keyboard too.
