comment How can I clear the water out of this area?
I've used the gravity method (using the method flavuit mentioned for quick removal), but use a mix of gravel & sand -- build a pier out to where you want to excavate, then drop gravel to wall off the area to be drained. Fill in using sand. This allows you to more easily tell which walls to not remove. (we were draining a massive area, and had to grid it out to work in sections, as you'd burn through a full inventory of sand). A bucket of water makes fast work of the torches, plus a stack of ladders and it's a quick job. (we spend days on it before I realized the torch trick)

comment Is it Possible to play Dead Rising 3 Indefinitely?
This also holds true for the first two (or three, if you count the alternate #2)

comment Dead Rising 3, side missions, and replaying a chapter
I haven't played #3, but in the first two, you just had to do things at the right time and follow them through before their timer expired. (and you might need to do something to trigger their starting)

comment How can I respec my badass rank bonus stats?
@MBraedley : and after running some tests, 6 of my last 7 baddass turnins ... my two lowest showed up (grende damage at 0% and melee damage at 1%), and my highest showed up 3 times (max health now at 16.8%, when all of the rest of mine are near 12.8%). So nope, not the lowest 5 items. The other time was the two lowest, the highest twice, and one other. Looking at other forums, people are reporting that Max Health comes up often.

comment Is it possible to confront Dagoth Ur from the beginning of the game?
Nah, that'd be cheating ... whereas abusing poor QA ... that's fair in my book. (of course, no one would play C&C with me after a month or so, as I figured out the bug w/ silos) ... and I don't think I even want to know how many hours I had in morrowind ... almost finished, stopped for a bit, then couldn't remember where I was so started all over again.

Cheats? you don't even need that, just potions ... get some potions of +intelligence (or was it wisdome?), drinks those, then make more potions ... including more of +intellgence. Keep repeating it, and after a while you'll be making insane potions (eg, a potion of jumping that'll send you high enough to kill you on landing if you try using it). Although how I'm able to get enough potion ingredients quickly might be cheating. (find the ones who restock items, sell it back to them, then buy, and it'll set a new max that they restock to)

@MBraedley : you're trying to make it sound like it's a scientific experiment ... but you seem to be missing my point about a null hypothesis. You don't need thousands of runs -- you just need one to disprove it. And I have, it's not the lowest 5, because in my case, one of 'em was repeated 3 times. (but that one is significantly lower than all of my other bonuses)

@MBraedley : that's not how evidence works ... I can provide proof that it's not your 5 lowest ranks, as I have one appear three times, so it's more like my 3 three lowest ... and I really do believe that it's being handled differently now. (I don't know when it started ... I had taken some time off from playing, and was playing ~2 weeks ago when all of this happened)

comment How to play Multiplayer in Age of Empires II?
local, or across the internet? We played tons of AoE2 in the 1990s on a LAN ... can't remember if it was IP or IPX, though.

comment How can I respec my badass rank bonus stats?
@MBraedley : it's possible that there's some biasing towards the low levels ... as I think I've only ever taken the melee damage one once, and the last 3 or 4 times I've leveled it up, it's been in there multiple times (3 of the 5 choices, always the bottom three choices. I'm not sure what my badass rank is, but I have around 12-13% bonuses in everything except melee (which us under 2%)

comment How can I use the Steam app to download a game I already own?
It's a pre-order? They generally won't let you download it 'til a day or two before the release date.

comment How much does resource quality really matter?
@Lawton : it affects item durability (which as best I can tell is how much damage it can take over its lifetime, so you can't just keep repairing something over and over again). And it's not craftable, it must be purchased with crystite or occassionally found for the low level ones.

comment How much does resource quality really matter?
@Lawton : and how long you'll be using it is affected by what level of structural reinforcement you can afford ... which you're probably not going to be buying high levels of, if at all, as you're starting out.

@Neurofluxation in what way didn't work? If it's the telnet command, try using a colon between the host ('localhost' or ip address) and port number.

comment What is gold good for?
Although the gold for emeralds tends to be expensive, you need to trade once to get them to unlock their next thing ... and for blacksmiths, they might sell diamond tools or armor
