comment Is there a way to get the ammo from a gun without picking it up?
You are correct: eventually you will get recipes to create ammo for shotguns and rifles.

comment Do containers respawn?
This has not been my experience: I have seen containers respawn frequently, although in general I believe you need to move from one area to another to trigger respawning.

comment What's the best way to kill a floater in Dead Island?
This works well if you have a weapon modified to do additional damage (fire, shock, blood) ... just make sure there aren't other zombies around to interrupt you.

comment What formal rules are there around place names in Words with Friends?
@Chris, Kurley's right: it can refer to either a hard, durable, black varnish or the process of applying it. I didn't know it was an acceptable word either.

comment What formal rules are there around place names in Words with Friends?
I think it would be better to restrict your question to Words With Friends; there's no guarantee each game has similar rules, and a broad question about Scrabble and its clones sounds like a question about Board and Card Games.

comment Why do I need the Season Ticket for loading a Career Mode save state?
@Thomas, unfortunately I don't know. I'm not familiar with the contents of the files that FIFA 12 creates; Matthias' answer is the one that mentions deleting those UGC files, and that post on EA's forums does not mention what else would be contained in those files.

comment Will I get trophies for clearing lower difficulties if I play on a higher difficulty?
Note that this appears to be the same as in the 360 version.

comment Who is the Virmire Survivor?
Steve, I like the edit: I think it's important to show that your emphasis is not on ME3 or what might be in it, and of course there is already support for the rest of the question.

comment Who is the Virmire Survivor?
@Jason, perhaps, but the line is still there, and at least one answer is referencing ME3. I support questions about series canon, but prefer that they not be worded with respect to future releases so that we do not have to explain "Well, that question was OK because it was about previous games too."

comment Who is the Virmire Survivor?
Voting to close as this is a question about an upcoming release and thus off-topic per the FAQ.

comment Skyrim Dragon Souls
@Hackworth, thanks, that's it. GamerJ13, Stack Exchange sites work best when we have a single question that covers a particular topic, so I'm voting to close this as a duplicate because there is an existing question that should cover your situation.

comment Skyrim Dragon Souls
Welcome to Gaming! There are already several questions on the site about dragon souls in Skyrim; give me a minute and I will link the most appropriate one, if I can find it.

comment What do the player trait acronyms mean in NFL Pro 2012?
Hmm ... actually, this isn't a Madden port, which is interesting because it does have an NFL license. Unfortunately, I had no success finding out anything about this game other than the extent to which microtransactions are involved. Hopefully someone else can find something to help you.

comment What do the player trait acronyms mean in NFL Pro 2012?
@Jason, yeah, that should be right. These sound like the same traits in Madden proper.

comment Making money through trading players?
I'm not sure that it's possible to write a good answer that touches on all the points of your question. Some parts are speculative in nature anyway ... if you can narrow your question, I think it'll prompt better answers.

comment why does part of the Captain America table in Pinball FX2 seem 'sticky' all the time?
Actually, virtual pinball games can have sticky surfaces - not for the same reasons, obviously, but it is possible that there is something about that part of the table that slows the ball. Have you changed the view to get a better look at that area, to see if perhaps there's something else there? (I don't own the table and can't check myself.)

comment Missing pushups in UFC Trainer
This seems to be a common complaint with all workout games for the 360 - in fact, with all workout games, period. Motion detection is still not precise enough to cover exercises well enough; the best answer here should help, but you'll likely have some issues no matter what you try.

comment I dismissed Jenassa, now I can't find her at the drunken huntsman where she asked to meet me. I want my 500 gold back!
If the issue is that an existing question covers your situation but does not address it in the answer, then I believe the site is better served by improving that answer, either by asking that person "What if none of those things apply?" or by updating the answer yourself if you figure it out.

comment My Madden Ultimate Team has no healthy REs
Good to know ... I'd forgotten that the depth chart works the same way in UT that it does in the other modes.
