The games in-question are World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2 (both 64-bit in 64-bit prefixes). The cursor alone is lacking noticeable detail and the color is off in some way (instead of having their usual detail and gradients, they end up using a single color). A picture is a little difficult to pull-off (gnome-screenshot doesn't capture the cursor; phone doesn't focus closely-enough).
I use NVIDIA graphics. The cursor in WoW is corrupted with both the Solus NV package and NVIDIA's latest driver. GW2's cursor is also corrupted in the Solus NV package (I didn't check/notice it in the latest NVIDIA driver).
