comment Does the gender of a game's protagonist affect sales?
"I am looking for hard facts and data." Well you are not going to find any. Hard data would require isolating the variables and altering the independent one which is the protagonist's gender. This isolation would be impossible there are too many things making a huge impact on sales, game play, hype, the developer’s reputation. If you can’t isolate the variables you have one other option I know of which is to normalize by using a large sample set. Good luck with that. You can’t run a proper experiment to get any meaningful statistical data from.

Hacking an XBox is easy and there is nothing to worry about as long as you don't connect to XBL. Never tried altering Skyrim though I'm quite sure it’s possible and would be surprised if there is not already a community dedicated to doing it.

comment How do I draw 2D textures with Direct3D 11.1?
I really recomend you look at Allen Pestaluky's answer. An author of the XNA library ported sprite batch to D3D11 which would prably help you immensly.

comment Simulating pressure in a grid based liquid simulation
I was working on a game which required this problem to be solved and did a ton of theroycrafting but never actually put it to the test. If interested I can post my ideas though I don't really consider it an answer.

comment How to handle a Tile Map Scrolling
I'm not sure what a mask matrix is. If you explain it I will understand where you are and probably be able to answer your question.

comment UV mapping width and height
Accurate answer but if op understood the definition to the words you are using he probably wouldn't have to ask the question. You answer would be much more noob friendly if you would break the concepts down and define your terms a bit more.

comment Increasing speed of circle over time as linear with Box2d
Box2d is best when want to run simulations. The more tightly you want to control things the worse it is. At your point I would just do the math yourself. Not to mention Box2D is kinda built around forces and there is nothing linear about how forces effect thigns.
