I noticed it's not very straightforward where the save games for Tomb Raider (2013) are stored. Depending on how you purchased the game, it's in a different location.

Note that it is not really straightforward to restore the saves afterwards (see below). For that reason, it's better to enable Steam Cloud and have your files synced to the cloud.

For the Steam version, it is located at:

<Steam folder>\userdata\<profile id>\203160\remote

Note that the ID for the game may be different, although, if you have the latest version, it should be as displayed. In any case, if you can't find it, try searching for files called profile.dat or save1.dat.

For the retail box or Origin, the s  ...

An interesting take on why the ending of Bioshock Infinite would be improbable:

There are some issues with Quake 4 on modern video cards. Even with Ultra Quality enabled, the graphics still looks awful: textures are at their lowest quality, shaders and shadows are missing, etc.

The problem can be resolved by editing q4baseQuake4Config.cfg in your game directory, and overwriting these values:

seta image_ignoreHighQuality "0"
seta image_cacheMegs "512"
seta image_downSize "0"

Also, for Windows 8 and 8.1, you may have to enable compatibility mode on the Quake4.exe and enable Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. This ensures the game display fits your monitor properly.

This project was a pass-time for me when I was a student. It is an emulator for Gameboy/Gameboy Color games, and was a rewrite from another open-source project (by a certain Rusty Wagner).

The project never hit the stable rate as it was more for myself than anyone else. Originally, there were three different editions available, but ultimately, this one is the most stable (but with the least extra features). It is still far from bug-free, and hardly finished.
For a time, the application had its own website and download page, and during that time was closed source. As I no longer do anything with it, similar to its original author, it gets released as open-source as well.

The project was  ...

Ran into a problem with my Fallout 3 saving, oddly enough for the first time ever. Every time I tried saving my savegame, the game crashed with an access violation. As long as I did not save, there was no problem, but hey, what's the use about not saving your game...
The problem started appearing right after I started the Broken Steel quest line, but even outside the quest line, I have this problem.

As a member of Fallout Nexus, I was nosing around the mod repository when I stumbled upon an unusual post: Crash To Desktop Begone. It explained a plausible reason for the problem: upon saving a game, a conflict occurs with the animation sequences and saving, causing the crash. Considerin  ...

"Aaaah, the story continues..."

I was browsing through the future releases section of my favourite online shop for games and DVDs (http://www.mediadis.com/), and saw most pleasingly, the announcement of Far Cry 2. "Neat!", I thought, "Ubisoft and Crytek are gonna make a sequel of the very first Far Cry."
A quick google led me to the official site.

The happy feeling I got didn't last long though... After reading the features on the key features page, I was quickly disappointed by a lot of things.

First of, despite their Far Cry┬« 2, the true sequel to the award-winning PC game (literally quoted), it is not a sequel to Far Cry: there's no mention of anything of the first game, nor  ...
