profile for Jeff Mercado on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites
I'm primarily a PC, Adventure/Puzzle game addict but love a whole variety of games. The only online/multiplayer games I play are FPS's but prefer mostly offline/singleplayer games.

I'm currently playing the following games (listed in order play time):

  • Titanfall (PC)
  • Thief (PC)
  • South Park: Stick of Truth (PC)
  • Bravely Default (3DS)

Also on:

Steam:     Appl_Jax
Uplay:     Appl_Jax
Origin:    jeff1203
Xbox Live: ApplJax114
PSN:       Appl_Jax

I'd say I'm a well above average "freelancing" FPS player, clans are not really for me. I can hold my own and work with the team when needed. I've spent significant time on:

  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare *retired* (as -AJ-, grisham or grish)
  • Tactical Ops (Unreal Tournament Mod) *retired* (as Appl_Jax)

Favorite games including but not limited to:

  • Sam & Max
  • Monkey Island
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • Grimm Fandango
  • (pretty much most of the classic LA adventure games)
  • Assassin's Creed
  • Prince of Persia
  • Splinter Cell
  • Max Payne (all the games)
  • SimCity
  • Call of Duty 4

Then of course there's the select console games, primarily a Nintendo fan:

  • Zelda
  • Metroid
  • Castlevania
  • Super Mario RPG (there ought to be more like this)
  • Final Fantasy 5 and 9

comment Are there any fixes for Watch Dogs FPS Drops?
To be fair, a lot of the problem is probably coming from Nvidia's drivers. Not even my Titan Blacks in SLI is immune to this problem. Even dropping all settings to low does nothing for me. AC4 multiplayer suffered a lot on release if you ran SLI. Stupid glitches. You'd have to turn off SLI to have everything look normal. Took 3 months for Nvidia to finally release drivers that fix that. The problems we're seeing here doesn't surprise me one bit.

comment Can you use burn cards in private matches? Do they “Burn”?
I wish they would have allowed for a "1 player" private match... It's just so hard to practice on or explore a particular map.

comment How can you get 6 gems in a row in Bejeweled Twist?
This will not be possible in the twist variation of the game. You will always be moving 4 gems at a time, you cannot simply swap two gems with each other.
