comment Is enabling “Large Address Aware” ability for PC games actually beneficial?
@Coldblackice: The easiest way to see if it's enabled is to use the utility from the TechPowerup thread you linked, which can also toggle it. And yes, if the game goes >2GB (and doesn't misbehave otherwise), then it is benefitting from the flag (also, you would expect a crash in that situation if the flag wasn't enabled).

comment Is enabling “Large Address Aware” ability for PC games actually beneficial?
Even 64-bit Windows won't allocate more than 2GB memory to a 32-bit process if it is not Large Address Aware - not all applications can work correctly if it is enabled, so it is kept off by default. If the program doesn't use any assumptions about pointer addresses, though, it is perfectly safe to enable it (and 32-bit applications only see a change if Windows has been configured to do so.)

comment Do AI cars “cheat”?
@Indrek: It's entirely possible - some games have their rubber band implementations only affect people who are behind, and some of those games only allow CPU players to benefit from it. All rubber band implementations do tend to have limits built in, though, so it's also possible you just didn't do well enough to make use of the effect :P

comment Do AI cars “cheat”?
Sounds like rubberband AI, which - in my experience - is really a very common "feature" in racing games. (In which case, yes, the game is cheating to make sure you actually experience some degree of challenge)

comment How many unique Pokémon formes are there?
@scenia: Still not good enough. When "could it be a different Pokémon"? Are the two Pyroar genders sufficiently dissimilar? What about Snover? What about differences in evolution (Combee, Kirlia)? Without a complete and objective criteria, you can't give an authoritative answer.

comment How many unique Pokémon formes are there?
It's impossible to answer this without some firm way of determining when gender dfferences become "prominent" (does Hippopotas count? Frillish? Unfezant? Combee?).

There's no waiting period required - maybe the server just had a brief outage? How many times have you tried (and how far apart)?

comment Will buying a fit meter allow all of us to use Wii Fit U for free?
That promotion ended almost 3 weeks before you even asked the question. There isn't really any answer, because the premise of the question isn't true anymore - and was never true while this question existed.

comment Questions about the nature of frames for Super Smash Bros Brawl
I'm not sure what you're hoping to do with this information, and most of it is either not user observable or dictated by the fact that the game has to run on a TV. Regarding #3, you do realize the difference is about 0.016 milliseconds per frame, right? Why do you need this level of precision anyway?

comment Gamecube Memory Cards Life Span
I'm pretty sure there's no battery in a memory card, so you should be good to go until bit rot inevitably occurs after some decades - but I'm not sure of the exact techonology, and I'm not able to open one of my own memory cards right now. Find a way to run homebrew on a Wii or GameCube and make backups if you want to be absolutely certain you won't ever lose it.
