comment Avoiding hunger in Nethack
It should be noted that as long as you aren't wishing or using prayer for other things, the prayer timeout will generally be done by the next time you reach Weak hunger status. In fact, if you do have an available prayer and aren't planning on saving it for something else/an atheist, early-game it's always a better idea to use the prayer before you start working on non-perishable foods like rations.

comment List of Diablo 2 Mods that add quests
While I appreciate your effort to reduce the scope and remove the subjectivity, the better course of action over posting a new question would have been to edit your previous question, using the "edit" option in the lower left. "Closing" which is what happened, only makes the question incapable of receiving answers. It's still able to be edited and commented on.

comment I am playing with a necromancer in Diablo 2. What is the recommended skill points distribution for hell difficulty?
Lower Resist and Decrepify don't actually help your Bone skill damage output, so that's probably why you aren't seeing any difference.

comment How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat?
@Willful Right! Teleportitis, should add that. Yellow Mold causes stunning on attack, and Violet Fungus is also common as a hallucinogenic corpse.

comment How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat?
This is generally useful, but restricted to your pet being a carnivore and eating the same diet you do. A horse can tell you that yellow molds are a bad idea while brown molds are safe, but it can't eat meat so it won't help you in the majority of cases. Undead pets eat rotten corpses, not fresh ones, so they work opposite. And whatever you do, do NOT follow your pet Yellow Dragon's example and eat a cockatrice.

comment How can the PS3 do so much with so little RAM and VRAM?
@Kip I would consider console knowledge to be less game-dev and more universal. This kind of console hardware question is more of a "how stuff works" within the gaming world as a whole, not just dev. I see it the same as this question about gravity engines. How consoles work is actually important to gamers, since it affects how their stuff runs. It's developing against those specs or considerations in their creation which is more for Game Dev than here.

comment How can the PS3 do so much with so little RAM and VRAM?
We looked at this issue very early at Meta. The judgment was that non-gaming gaming console questions are fine, and I am content with that ruling myself. Super User would most likely close it. And thank you, @thethinman.

comment Pokemon: Gotta catch 'em all, but how to get started?
@kazza HGSS is a rehash more than a remake. It follows the same story and region as Gold/Silver, but it is no less of a 4th generation game than DPPt. It has many new features that aren't even in DPPt, like having Pokemon follow around behind you (I'd love to have a Ninjask following me ♪). Don't let its status as a "remake" affect your decision - it's basically a new game, and only familiar if you've even played the original Gold/Silver (and I myself skipped 2nd Gen and went straight to 3rd).

comment Pokemon: Gotta catch 'em all, but how to get started?
@kazza Both are the current generation. And this I would say is where personal choice comes in - what exclusive features are the ones that attract you. For example, a friend of mine had to select Pearl (back when 4th gen first came out) because it had Misdreavus. If there aren't any exclusive features that attract you strongly, choose your favorite color.

comment Pokemon: Are there any adverse effects to making a legendary beast faint?
Just goes to show you can't always work off of what happened in the previous versions (even in the same gen!). Nice correction.
