comment Would I be at a disadvantage if I played Quake Live with an HUD that displayed damage to death “instead of” health and armour numbers?
@badp - the point is that you need to go looking for whichever is lowest. If you're low on health, you should go looking for health packs. By combining them together, you lose that critical piece of information, to know which one you need.

comment How to get old 16-bit Windows games to work on 64-bit Windows?
Although it's unlikely you're using the Starter edition, XP Mode is not available for that edition of Windows 7. Also, it requires certain hardware support that may or may not be enabled in the BIOS even if it is available on your hardware... Other than, that, I love XP Mode. :)

comment Advantage of a slower off-hand for a dual-wield Frost Death Knight in World of Warcraft?
@Luminose - this site is intended to be a "general" gaming site. While this means that we don't want the site to be dominated by WoW questions, they certainly are not off-topic or "belongs on X" either.

comment What are some key ways for someone new to FPS games to improve their game?
On a PC game, definitely learn to use mouse-look effectively. Once you've got it down, you can change direction at the speed of your reflexes rather than the repeat speed of your keyboard.

comment Healer add-ons for end-game raiding in WoW?
I already use OmniCC (didn't list it above since it doesn't affect screen real estate...). Also, it looks like you use both Skada and Omen?

Out of curiosity, your first two links point to the same place... if that was intended? (Curse WebSense's irrational fear of BlogSpot!)

comment What is “wall riding”?
The basic idea is that you enter the corner at such a high speed so that normally you would lose control and wreck, but since your car is against the outside wall it basically slingshots you around the corner at high speed while maintaining control.

comment What is bunny hopping?
It was also useful in games such as UT to avoid/minimize splash damage from rockets and flak shells.
