    OFFICIAL GTA V (Discussion)

    Holding a heli still is damn hard:D They have a natural tendency to drift and yaw and once you rocked it too much, stabilizing it is a real issue. Well the console controller's stick travel is bit guilty there. Too sensitive. I haven' flown a heli on PC yet; I did find them relatively hard to...

    OFFICIAL GTA V (Discussion)

    Yeah heli training IS hard. But its hard in real life, too. I was pleasantly surprised that helis are as unstable in GTA as they are in real life. Just be gentle on the sticks and you're fine.

    First round the world solar flight

    Well I guess I can't really give out detailed flight information as I don't know about the confidentiality of those. We receive the flight plans well in advance and also handle their overflight permissions and stuff. They do their hole preparation via us.

    I got a mechanical keyboard

    Mechanical keyboards can be a bitch, deal with it. However pressing the function key to use multimedia keys is indeed ridiculous, but what are you gonna do when it has no dedicated multimedia keys? If you use them that much, I wouldn't have compromised there. Pressing a button to press a button...

    Grammar police

    Since the Oxford guys changed the meaning of "literally" to also mean "figuratively", everything is possible.

    Wii Super Mario game - almost unplayable

    This is indeed weird. While I never played Mariokart on the Wii, I have played quite the variety of games. With normal Wiimotes, these with the +addon, the newer Wiimotes that have the +addon incorporated and even el cheapo Gamestop knockoff Wiimotes and while there was a noticeable difference...

    How often do you change your PC case?

    I used to change it quite often. The case I use now is like three or four years old. I'm changing it soon again, tough. And then we'll see.

    Have you ever seen... This !

    Well, for the price, you get, uhm, support and erm... well... Aight, you get the PC with the specs, they will custom make the case, they will deliver it to you anywhere in Switzerland (save for the places so remote you can only reach them by cable car or similar), install it, and pretty much do...

    I, too, got it now. Its 3:36am here (why am I awake at this hour again?), so I guess server load died down.
