About me

Known elsewhere on the Internet (including Steam and the rest of Stack Exchange) as BoltClock, 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. Puzzle's probably the genre that gets me the most.

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 ).

Check out my site. Read my tech blog. Follow me on Twitter (if you dare).

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.

comment How does Elizabeth getting various loot and then giving it to you work?
I like to think that the very last sentence in your answer could be a theory in how she "finds" items to give to the player during combat.

comment How can I ensure a successful Degreaser + Axtinguisher combo?
@Zibbobz: That's called groundstalling and doesn't work anymore. It was patched a few months back.

comment How do the Hitman: Absolution DLC weapons stack up to non-DLC weapons?
Asking a whole slew of questions in a matter of days doesn't exactly mean you can be immature when one of them gets closed. Here's a better idea: learn from our so-called weasel words and improve your questions.

comment Is there a way to disable screen bob/shake?
The shaking that is caused by explosions and other environmental effects does a pretty good job of being "realistic" (or rather cinematic), but the way the occasional jerking that you see when running is so artificial is what gives me motion sickness.

comment RollerCoaster Tycoon Platinum Windows To Mac
Which RCT do you have? RCT1, RCT3 or RCT3 Platinum? You need to specify the exact title, because only RCT3 Platinum is on Steam, and even then not all retail copies may be registered with Steam.

comment How to airsuck and deal with airsuck?
1000 hours of Pyro and the only things I've pulled towards myself with airblast are rockets and pills, not enemy players...

comment What happens if you install a Steam game to a removable drive?
I was closing and restarting Steam for it to stop and start recognizing games. If you do this while Steam is running then what Unionhawk describes happens instead.

comment How can I move an installed game from one Steam library folder to another?
Thanks for the comment, Slightly Less Annoying Pyro (SLAP). You do have a point in saving just the ACF files.

comment What does “Leave a calling card on your victims” do?
It's specific to the item set rather than just the class. If you look at the text in your screenshot, it says "Croc-o-Style". The tombstone is also decorated with likenesses of the items that come from the specific item set.
