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.

comment Does removing torches help my sneaking?
@Iszi, I think there's no need to ask another question to determine this: we can accomplish the same thing by posting a comment on the answer to the existing question. That person (or someone else with a PC) can test and update, giving us a more well-rounded answer in the same place as the existing question.

comment Is there a PC controller that behaves exactly like an Xbox 360/PC Windows Controller?
Looking at this more closely, it seems to me to be a shopping recommendation ... if there is a way to make this question solve a practical problem, let's preserve it and keep it open, but as is, I don't see it as different than "Is there an RPG with open questing like Skyrim?"

comment 120hz in 2D, what's the point?
Mods on one site can work with mods on other sites to migrate a question to the appropriate site. If you aren't sure where a question belongs, ask it just once, on the site you think is best, and it can be moved if it fits better somewhere else.

comment Why did I lose my Xbox achievements?
It's not possible for offline profiles to be reset by Microsoft, and they'd have no reason to do so anyway because they wouldn't have received any feedback about those profiles.

I thought that might be a problem. I'll update my answer with links to places where you might be able to find a trading partner.

I don't know for sure. From what they've said about Online Pass, without a code, you can use offline functions, but not online functions, so I suspect you would not be able to make a trade with another account unless you bought another code. You can always ask in chat here or post in forums if you need a trade partner.

comment Is there a way to get more than one thing to download at once?
Possibly related to gaming.stackexchange.com/q/31956/8366, which is also related to another downloading question. And what's odd is that I thought Steam automatically downloads as many games at once as it can ... at least that's what I thought when I've purchased, say, a Humble Bundle.

comment Why did I die when my car exploded?
Of course unlike most other games, you'll be perfectly fine if you jump out well before the jet crashes, because you've always got a parachute with you. (I remember this being a problem in GTA: San Andreas. If you were in an aircraft that took too much damage, you had to dive quickly or else splat.)

comment What are the major differences between Madden games for the PC, post 2003?
Unfortunately game recommendations are off topic for this site ... you are welcome to ask these questions in chat, but the Stack Exchange format doesn't lend itself well to recommendations.

comment Overloaded Bookshelf?
Could you add a link to the source? This looks like good information, and it might be helpful for people to be able to read whatever else is available on that page or in that thread, depending on where you found it.

comment How can I bring STAG back if I have 100% completion?
I was afraid of that, based on the answers to your Condor question. (I wasn't sure exactly what the 100% covered, given that I'm not there myself.) No, I don't believe diversions are replayable. Have you tried co-op with someone who isn't at 100%? (I've played no co-op myself, so I can't say from experience.)

comment How do I get the Condor VTOL out of the park for the related vehicle delivery mission?
It is ... fortunately there's only one person who wants a VTOL. I've nearly landed it once, but I'd like to do it for sure and then make sure it works the way I think before posting.

This is the Condor, isn't it, not the Falcon?

comment Does equipping a torch actually make picking a lock easier?
@yx.: if this is true, it might be interesting to know if spells simulating a torch's effects (light or heat, or perhaps both) also work.

comment In the “Subtlety Optional” assassination, what counts as a muscle car?
I used a Hammerhead for this, but don't remember where I found it. I have a habit of collecting car types, just in case I need them, so I already had one in my garage when this mission came up, and I don't remember where I found it.

comment Do I have to use a stolen vehicle to complete a Vehicle Theft?
The nitrous thing is what brought on my discovery that getting back in the car triggers the notoriety boost: I popped through the windshield after hitting a divider with the garbage truck. And yes, the GPS system has no clue how the airport works. It'll zig-zag you through every alley in the city, but can't imagine that you can drive through a gate onto the tarmac.
