About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

I'm not a hardcore gamer by any rate, but I do play some games, and on the few games that I do play I try to get as close to 100% completion as possible, and sometimes I succeed. Puzzle's probably the genre that gets me the most. You can find me on Steam, where I was formerly known as The Annoying Pyro for quite a while, before I finally decided that being annoying was getting old.

My 5 most favorite games of all time (so you may see me patrolling these tags most often):

  1. The Ratchet & Clank franchise, by Insomniac Games, who are awesome.

  2. The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. I often prefer Knuckles to Sonic though, for some reason.

  3. The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Admittedly, I was never interested in Lara Croft's previous capers, but Crystal Dynamics was right: I'm really captivated by the idea of going through this brand new, character-building adventure of survival with a fellow (albeit fictitious) human being.

  4. The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise, originally created by the talented Chris Sawyer, who is also awesome.

  5. Team Fortress 2, my favorite class being (although I main as ).

Honorary mention goes to Minesweeper, with my personal records on the Windows 7 version being:

  • Beginner: 5 seconds
  • Intermediate: 28 seconds
  • Advanced: 64 seconds

comment Do you get to keep Burn Cards over a level reset?
@Ramhound: The game does not force you to accept regen the moment you access the regen option for the first time, however you cannot progress beyond level 50 in any generation. The information is always there until you accept the regen. I know this because I just happened to regen a few hours before seeing this question.

If you're already aware of regen before even reaching level 50, you'd surely already have the answer to this question. The game tells you all of the information that you know and the information you're asking for, all in the same screen when you first access the regen option, and you are given a choice to accept the regen there and then or hold off for later.

Doesn't the game tell you this?

comment Can I pick up weapons dropped by enemies in TF2?
@Ullallulloo: The very assumption that that's how he does it is what makes this question not a duplicate. Besides, that other question makes no mention of picking up weapons dropped by dead players.

comment What can I do to stop an enemy Pilot from rodeoing my Titan?
I would suggest keeping your answer around as it's well-elaborated, and we like having different perspectives so long as there's variety :)

comment How do I run Titanfall in a custom screen resolution?
Note: this was posted during the beta period, but it looks like the issue is still in the final game.
