@AnnaLear - That's a nice tip. Thanks for adding that.

comment How do I beat the first boss (Barrett)?
Ha. Nice. I'm not sure I had that many charges at that point, but it does sound like a satisfying way to win.

comment How do I beat the first boss (Barrett)?
EMP at the start, followed by barrel and canister throwing, worked very well. I didn't need weapons at all.

comment How do I defeat/sneak past proximity mines?
@Jeff - To be fair, there are three speeds in this game. Walk, standard (fast walk?) and sprint. And sprint does require you to hit shift.

comment How do I beat the first boss (Barrett)?
I'm guessing this was on Story Mode difficulty, because I definitely got off more than 3 headshots and he didn't go down.

comment Are bosses harder as a stealth-based character?
@Ian - I mean combat-oriented augmentations. (Coming from an RPG-heavy background, The word "skills" came to mind first.) For example, typhoon claims to kill anything at higher levels. Does that make bosses easy mode? And/or are there other augmentations that significantly change the difficulty of these fights?

comment How do I make an effective Minecraft SMP trap?
The obsidian/TNT setup will no longer work as a trap. After a recent update, TNT must be activated with fire or redstone current.

comment What is the best mage talent tree for raiding in patch 4.2?
@LessPop - I realize that, I was just hoping the OP could be a little more explicit about those expectations.

comment Why did my Excalibur go all explodey on me?
@Grace - Good call. Forgot about that.

comment What's with the random small bonuses for Terran?
Spore crawlers also can't shoot ground. Only Protoss cannons can hit both.

comment What is the best mage talent tree for raiding in patch 4.2?
Could you be a little more specific about what features you're looking for in this spec? Are you just worried about sheer DPS, or are there other important factors? Without a little more detail, this question comes across as a rather open-ended opinion poll and is likely to be closed.

@DMA57361 - In general, I don't come across the kind of egregious posts that warrant flagging. In most cases, a comment does the job just fine (or a close vote, for off-topic posts). I don't avoid flagging, I just haven't had much reason to do it.

comment Is it bad to keep Caillou waiting?
@uncle - No, although it made me think of that. This Caillou is a little wizard (with hair).

comment What's up with RF Online? Can't even register on the website
@Shiki - Yeah, that's pretty annoying. From their comments, I get the impression that Codemasters was hoping to work something out in the future, but still...

comment Is there a “Go to Coordinates” command?
Having to use the numpad threw me off. I had been using the regular arrow keys, which only let you select objects already on your map.

comment How do I beat Robert de Sable in the cemetary?
I recall at least one of the archers being reachable by climbing, but it's probably faster/safer to just kill them with knives.

comment How do I choose which lands to tap?
Bummer. I understand the game is aimed at casual players, but geez, couldn't they have made it a checkbox in the options or something?

comment What is the formula for experience points gained for killing monsters?
I would really like to see some additional detail, and evidence to back up some of these claims.

comment In Terraria, is there an order in NPC appearance in addition to the minimum requirements for each one?
@jos - This might have simply been due to when I acquired the necessary items. I haven't had a chance yet to confirm.
