comment How big is the Portal 2 download from Steam?
There are multiple versions of the steam engine, and the 7.6 gb includes an update to the steam engine, I believe these various engine versions are kept side by side, so the 7.6 gb will apply even if you already have Half Life 2 or L4D.

comment How can I win the training missing in Arma II called “MOUT Course” without it ending in “training accident/friendly fire” incident?
So far I've figured out that (a) Run and Gun will get you killed every time, and (b) stick to the walls. But I still haven't beat it.

Nice blog post about the game, with background on why the BabelFish puzzle was infamous when the game was released: satelliteshow.wordpress.com/2010/12/18/…

comment How can I play Day of the Tentacle?
This seems the best method, for any ScummVM based game. It also seems possible that the original install CD could be made to work using its own DOS-version of the ScummVM player, using DosBOX.

I noticed the reference to the song Exile Vilify in the endgame credits, but as I didn't fined this room I was left a bit mystified about it. Mystery solved.
