I wonder what the general techniques are for this kind of video capture? Here's a sample:

    External URL: http://www.hirezstudios.com/hi-rez/latest-news/view/hi-rez-studios-blog/2013/08/05/hi-rez-communication-focus

    Hi-Rez have decided to shut down their server permanently, stating:

    More and more players use social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Reddit to connect and discuss their entertainment of choice. Consequently, fewer players visit official forums long enough to even create an account. In keeping with this observed tendency, Hi-Rez has shifted focus to those social media platforms increasingly over the course of the year.

  19. Redditor helps a quadriplegic gamer play SimCity

    External URL: http://www.dailydot.com/lifestyle/reddit-simcity-quadriplegic-gamer/

    Sometimes the only barrier to playing a PC game is as simple finding "the right file in the wrong place..." (from our amusing slogans thread) and moving/deleting/burning it with fire, or finding some obscure patch or community fix. For gamers who are disabled, these problems can feel insurmountable, which is why I always like seeing a story where one gamer uses their PC game fixing skills to help others:

     

    Redditor joey6957 had a problem playing SimCity:

    When you put a road on the map you use the mouse clicker & hold it while determining where to put the road & at the same time you press the N key or M key to lower or raise the the road. When i lay a road down i use my Quadjoy which the device only allows you to do '1 thing at a time.' In other words I cant press the N key or M key on the on screen keyboard while laying a road.
