I'm a software developer (software engineer) since 2002. I've worked in the network security industry, in the game development business. Now I'm working on a large startup-like company.

I've mainly used Python, C and C++ during my professional life. I'm also more confortable with Linux and Mac than with Windows development.

I also enjoy a good video game, love learning new things.

comment What's the difference between “hard” and “crushing” difficulty?
Another difference in Uncharted 1 was that cheats were disabled in crushing. Is this also the cas in Uncharted 3?

comment What is a good spot to farm souls before going against the Depth boss?
Thank you for the very detailed answer. I have not yet tried to face the boss of the Depth, but I am only doing a mere 12 hit point to the slime enemies, so I was thinking I needed to do some leveling up.

comment Are there places only reachable by jumping in Dark Souls?
Thank you! I was also wondering what was on top of that tower I was seeing when taking this escalator!

comment Is there a limit to the number of item in inventory?
If I pickup a duplicate weapon, many ennemies drop Long Swords, they do not stack. Can I also hold 99 copies of those items too?

comment How can I gain humanity in Dark Souls?
@Marrond The wiki link also states that you can gain humanity if one of your hint is up voted and if you kill a large number of monster in an area where the boss is still alive (dying does not reset this counter). Could this explain the difference?

comment Can I move Steam notification popups?
You're welcome. Yes, only game distributed by Steam can change the position of the overlay (in fact, only game using steamworks).

comment How are Streetpass Puzzle Swap panels distributed in Europe / Australia?
I don't know, but here in France, everybody has some piece of the Metroid puzzle (it was also the puzzle I got the first piece).

comment 3DS Street Pass Not Working
I think that 8-10 is the time that data is exchange between the same two 3DS. If my 3DS synchronize with yours, then even if we meet again in the 8-10 hours, they won't exchange StreetPass data.

comment Does Sony remove games from the PSN Store?
Yes, I'm trying to buy it on the French PSN, where my promotion was accepted. If it is still present on UK or US PSN, I'll probably buy it there, but my question was more about whether or not games are removed from the PSN once they have been released. I did try to search the web for the answer but did not manage to find an answer.

comment Can the Mac and Windows version of Civilization V play a multiplayer game together?
Thank you for the information. I still didn't purchase it, and instead keep playing to Civilization 4 that has cross-platform multiplayer.

comment would a faster HDD in my PS3 speed up load times?
Well, the PS3 must have a HDD, so developpers don't have to code around a missing HDD. In fact, game are allowed to use the HDD as a cache (on PS3 and Xbox 360), and many of them do this.

comment Can the Mac and Windows version of Civilization V play a multiplayer game together?
I'd like to know. I do not have the game. If I can play with my brother (he has pc and i have a mac), then I would definitely buy the game.
