comment What's the right term for the list of “X killed Y with Z” messages in a multiplayer shooter?
Oh snap! Sorry I didn't respond to you the other day :P

comment What are all the locations of photo opportunities in Life is Strange Episode 1: Chrysalis?
@Powerlord: Huh, so it does. Looks like it only saves photos, and not the posters and stuff that you can examine. I'm not sure if any of those things has any effect on gameplay though.

comment Are there actually any consequences of watering my plant?
The plant is underneath the window and shadowed by the wall, so I can see how it could be missed. The water is on the windowsill though, oddly enough. The decision you refer to will at least trigger a text in episode 1, but I'm looking forward to seeing if it will have a much larger impact down the road (I'm sure it will, but I'm curious to see how the developers will implement this gameplay-wise).

comment What's the secret to playing Pyro?
@Zibbobz: Man I haven't updated this in years. It's in desperate need of a rewrite. I'm not sure if Stack Exchange does those blog things anymore.

comment What does a red icon mean in TF2 on the killboards?
Note that most kills (except non-lethal hits with the Holy Mackerel) will be reported in the console, so in this case, the output will be "soccer sam88 killed Table with phlogistinator. (crit)" and "didn't notice you killed Neil Armstrong with ubersaw."

comment Origin of achievements
My first experience with "achievements" prior to the Xbox 360 was with Ratchet & Clank, where completing difficult or unnecessarily contrived tasks earned you Skill Points which you used to unlock in-game bonuses. The only differences are that they are tied to your save (although they carry across playthroughs on the same save), not your account (since the PS2 didn't really have online gamer accounts), and the only way to know how to earn a Skill Point before earning it is to look it up online.

comment How can I move an installed game from one Steam library folder to another?
@sj26: Took me long enough but thanks to JamesGecko's comment I finally understand what was happening. I've updated my answer but linked to yours as well.

comment In TF2 do strange parts move the other strange parts down on your weapon?
Yeah, it's a bit of a hidden feature :)

comment In TF2 do strange parts move the other strange parts down on your weapon?
It seems tf2items doesn't display strange part attachments. The backpack icons in your Steam inventory page are clickable links - you can use those to link to your items (provided their item IDs don't change). Here's your Degreaser.

comment Do you earn XP for partial matches in Titanfall?
The regen multiplier seems to apply. I checked by playing a match, leveling up, then quitting. The level up is recorded along with the item that was unlocked, and the multiplier is listed in the XP gained to level up. Might have been a change since this answer was posted though.

comment Do Titans have a weak point?
I wouldn't say it's a duplicate of that question, unless you knew about the glowing red areas on Titans beforehand and just didn't mention it.

Yes, it does. I don't have a screenshot handy, however.

comment Am I supposed to have no idea what's going on in the first few hours of play?
What makes you feel like you're just gunning down "innocent people"?

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.

comment Do you get to keep Burn Cards over a level reset?
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.
