Avid PC gamer when I'm at home, and avid iPhone gamer when I'm out and about. I've played a lot of MMOs, and I love RPGs of almost any kind.

comment How can I escape from deep lakes?
@Wipqozn - Agreed. The major advantage of platforms over blocks is that you can jump up "through" them and land on top (whereas with blocks, you'll just bump your head jumping straight up into them).

comment How do you get to the fourth island without great slides in tiny wings?
This is pretty much the strategy that worked for me. Additionally, try to hit blue coins whenever possible - those little boosts can make a big difference.

comment I lost all my stuff after a night of hard drinking… Can I get it back?
You may also want to investigate tattoo removal.

comment How do I get to the laboratory for Scent of Incense?
@Bora It does look nice, but I'm hoping there are some brighter areas later on. So far it's nothing but dark forest and blue light everywhere. I need some color!

comment So I was out drinking last night…how do I remove a tattoo?
@Raven I suspect you're out of luck until you can talk to her again, though I'm not that far in the story yet.

comment How do I find books about a particular monster?
@Fabian I read something like that too, but I had probably killed 10 or 20 without seeing any results, so I decided to look for the book instead.

comment How do I find books about a particular monster?
I found this place after a little bit of exploring. Presumably there will be more book shops later on. Still, I wish the game would mark it specifically on the map.

comment In The Witcher 2, is it possible to hit the man with the red plume?
@Bora I've had to use Fraps to get my screenshots. There are probably some free third-party programs that would work too.

comment How do I do “finisher moves” in The Witcher 2?
I believe these only apply to melee, right? I'm pretty sure I have been stunning with the Aard spell with 0 stun listed in my critical effects.

comment How do you sheathe your sword? Also, how do I change the default controls?
Wow, what a stupid place to put this. I looked at the gameplay settings, saw that I could only change between keyboard and controller, and assumed that I was stuck with the default keybindings. Thanks for pointing this out!

comment Can I permanently store items somewhere?
Guess you just have to craft some of it away?

comment Where can I find Altair?
I'm not sure how you got that information out of that video. All I see is the "Barricade" quest text. I found him in the prologue/tutorial, just a few minutes into the game.

comment Is there a hotkey to loot everything in a container?
To be fair, the little tutorial tip mentions this.

comment What's the story behind the drawings on the wall in Portal 2?
Note that the original quote from Macbeth lacks the reference to turrets. "I go, and it is done; the bell invites me. / Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell / That summons thee to heaven or to hell."

comment Colorful question marks seen when blind
Warning should not "overwrite" the telepathy effect. If you would see something through telepathy and warning, you should get the (more detailed) telepathy description. Either these monsters are mindless (not visible through telepathy), or you lost your telepathy, or you had extrinsic telepathy, which has limited range.

comment How can I safely explore far away from my spawn point?
Beds are now in-game and do allow you to change your spawn point.

comment Dwarf Fortress learning curve
I think this illustration is much better at capturing the spirit of Dwarf Fortress.

comment Cowering in terror from a wand of death
@Ivo - I could give it a shot, though I suspect others have done it quite eloquently already.

@Tim Of course, knowing NetHack, he'd probably become an arch-lich.

@Grace - Such wonderful words of encouragement :)
