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 How do you aim with a pistol during combat?
I don't think it's possible. Aiming is initiated by the L1. In combat, it becomes the quick shot. There are no alternatives to aim.

comment How do I get a shark to attack me when diving?
Hmm, I don't think I ever tried just sopping in place. That sounds interesting.

comment Can I set up and use a Wii U without a separate display?
IIRC, you need a TV for the initial setup. The gamepad screen would say "please look at TV" blah blah blah. After that, most basic functions will work on the gamepad, then varying levels of game support.

comment How am I supposed to time my press when trying to do the Roll Recovery?
But that wouldn't quite work if you are jumping at a very high place (like say 3 stories up). Midway would be too soon I think and have not been able to do the roll at that height.

comment How am I supposed to time my press when trying to do the Roll Recovery?
I think I've figured out the timing. It seems to be based on how far away you are from the ground. At about standing height to be precise. So we really shouldn't be counting the time it takes to fall, but the height we are at.
