comment What happens if I ignore my Fallout Shelter game for two weeks?
For Science! and Case Control have been sent on their way. May the Overseer in the sky oversee their journey. I'll let you know how it goes in a couple weeks.

I will rename a dweller "For Science" and send them on their way!

My device has no problem with it running in the background. This is drifting off topic.

Do I have to exit to the main menu? Or is it enough to not have the game open?

comment Does armor help explorers in Fallout Shelter?
@GnomeSlice There's already an answer about the effects of SPECIAL on exploration. To be clear, I'm asking if armor does anything beyond SPECIAL. Is there a hidden armor stat?

comment For PC gaming on external storage: should I use flash or HDD (hard disk drive)?
@lilbyrdie Yeah, I've had particular problems with the WD Elements drives. Move the laptop a bit and they disconnect. I don't have a recommendation for a good enclosure, do you?

@Mel Good. The on-chip Intel HD Graphics 4000 would never run Fallout 4, I have the same on my Macbook, but the dedicated GeForce GT 650M will do ok. That said, I think your graphics card will be the biggest bottleneck. Have you tried running a modern triple-A FPS like Battlefield 4 or Arma 3?

@lilbyrdie It's a moot point for the OP who is concerned about price. That flash drive will cost you at least $150. The SSD will be $50.

comment Is there a risk of inbred children with fake fatherhood?
Royalty and rednecks, so far apart on the social ladder, yet both the butt of incest jokes. Go figure.

comment What is the opening song of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel?
No wonder I couldn't find it, I heard it as "take a ride on the flying tiger". Thanks! And the following song is Goodbye also by The Vines.

comment Install Steam and most games in one large HDD but some popular games on a separate SSD
I have this setup. I've found that simply having the OS on an SSD an the games on another disk is a tremendous boost. The whole computer runs faster. The spinning disk, free of other tasks, is much faster reading game files. Managing the meager amount of space on the SSD hasn't been worth the trouble of putting games on it.

comment Is it possible to easily collate recommended system requirements for all owned Steam games?
I have nearly 500. :) This might be presented as an interesting programming problem on another exchange. Get a list of your games, scrape the requirements from steampowered.com and assemble them together into a summary. The first two is straightforward. The last is complicated. How do you compare Graphics: Shader 3.0 / Open GL 3.2+ with Graphics: 256 MB?

comment Steam Client Is Broken
This is drifting into PC tech support and I think would be better served on superuser.com.

Monsters? Destroying my walls? It's more likely than you think.

comment How can I beat the final boss in Faster Than Light?
One item I will add to this is to use fire. With no crew to put it out, fire runs rampant through the ship. If you're having trouble reliably getting through the shields and doing damage fast enough, a fire weapon can save the day.

comment Does shooting reveal other friendly positions?
I have had team mates roll out this urban legend, even attributing it to merely rotating my hull. It comes from the enemy taking a tip from "How Not To Be Seen" and lobbing shots at likely sniper bushes even when no one has been spotted. Or from artillery splash damage aimed at the spotted tank. Or errant shots aimed at the spotted tank impacting nearby tanks.

comment Where is the auction house in Diablo 3 for the PS3?
Blizzard production director John Hight, "it became increasingly clear that despite the benefits of the AH system and the fact that many players around the world use it, it ultimately undermines Diablo's core game play: kill monsters to get cool loot," he added. "With that in mind, we want to let everyone know that we've decided to remove the gold and real-money auction house system from Diablo III." gamespot.com/articles/…

comment How can I sell large quantities of ore quickly?
This advice also works for tier 1 loot: melt it all! Except the best stuff, for example. Then sell the minerals. Buy orders in mission hubs prey on mission runners not realizing this. Canny marketeers will place buy orders for common loot significantly lower than its mineral value counting on unwary mission runners to bang the sell button.
