Minecraft and the Power of the F3 Key

Fun fact: If you press the F3 key while playing Minecraft, you get to see the Minecraft Debug Overlay or Menu. You might need to press the FN key as well if you’re on the laptop, buy by pressing the mighty F3 key, you are given this all-powerful, horrifically messy bunch of numbers and letters that cover the top of the screen. Well, it may seem like a horrible mess, but this overlay gives you critical information that you can take advantage of. The most important information on the Debug Menu are your exact coordinates. You can see exactly where… [Continue Reading]

The Old Wheel Map

One of the unique things about the Daily SPUF is our ability to write very detailed articles on very small, specific things. Sometimes multiple articles, if the very small, specific things become big enough. Today, I’m going to do that again, not for a Team Fortress 2 thing or a Warframe thing, but for a map in Gang Beasts. The Wheel map has been around for a long time in Gang Beasts. It is a Ferris Wheel on a platform in the middle of an ocean. The wheel has 8 compartments and constantly spins round in one direction. The platform… [Continue Reading]

Shiny Inequality

It’s funny how much we care about shinies in Pokemon. They’re just Pokemon with different colours on them. But they’re rare. Insanely rare. Like, a one in a thousand chance. Possibly more. It’s possible that you’ll never see a shiny in any of the handheld console games. The original games didn’t even have them anyway since they were monochrome. But when it comes to shinies, there are some very odd patterns in play and some Pokemon get a far better makeover than others. There are some patterns when it comes to shinies. For example, blue Pokemon very often end up… [Continue Reading]

The Feebas Community Research Three Hour Event Thing

Not every Pokemon is suitable for a community day. Many Pokemon either aren’t popular enough, don’t have enough evolution stages or simply have mediocre shiny forms. Other Pokemon evolve in too awkward a way to be able to give them a special move and flood areas with them for three hours. One of those Pokemon is Feebas, and Feebas was the recipient of a miniature community event. Unlike other events, Feebas didn’t have a higher chance of spawning in the wild. For three hours on January 19th, from noon until 3pm depending on your time zone, all research tasks from… [Continue Reading]

New War Predictions and Desires

The New War is the next part of the Warframe storyline, a quest that features the Sentient Natah rather than the Lotus. Although frankly, considering that the only info we have is that Natah went back to her mum and her mum wants her to destroy everything, all coming from a very small trailer released at the end of Tennocon 2018, the New War could consist of just about anything. So, since we know nothing of the New War, here’s some predictions and desires as to what the New War will contain. Let’s start with predictions, because we can certainly… [Continue Reading]

Looking Back at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Some people might be wondering whether this article has been published late or not. No, not really. In fact, it’s an article I’ve considered writing for a while. But it’s only been recently that I’ve been able to re-watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And honestly? It’s really, really dropped in regards to as how good a movie I think it is. The thing is, I don’t have a prior article. I swore I wrote a review for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (which I’m shortening to GOTG2 from now on) but it turns out I wrote one… [Continue Reading]

Research Breakthroughs in Pokemon Go

Back in early 2018, Niantic created Research Breakthroughs, a reward for doing field research tasks and doing a new one every day. Do 7 days worth of field research and you’re rewarded with an encounter with a mysterious Pokemon, which changed every month. First off you could get Articuno, then Zapdos, then Moltres, then the legendary doggos Raikou, Entei and Suicine, followed by the rather odd choice of Shedinja. If you timed your field research well enough, you could obtain four or even five of each Pokemon during the months in which they were available. In December 2018, Niantic announced… [Continue Reading]

Fortuna and the Orb Vallis So Far

It’s been… a while since Fortuna released. Has the hype died down? Probably not. Is everyone still singing “We all lift together?” Oh yes. Is Fortuna 69 still alive? Totally. Is there anything special going on in Fortuna? Not really. So what HAS been going on in Fortuna and the Orb Vallis? Honestly? Not that much. There have been two major Fortuna updates so far. The initial update and the first Heist update in which we took on the Profit-Taker Orb. MOA companions and Kitguns were introduced, as were K-Drives and two whole new Warframes, as well as some nice… [Continue Reading]

“A Potent Alternative to Gunplay”

“This is a high-damage Warframe perfect for players looking for a potent alternative to gunplay” is part of the flavour text for when you preview Volt, either in the Warframe market or via the codex. But for the longest of times, this sentence was completely wrong. Firstly, when it comes to high damage, Volt actually kinda lacked in that. It wasn’t until Update 22.12, when two new Eidolons were released and we could steal Dargyns from the Grineer, that Volt’s damage was uncapped. Before then, most of Volt’s abilities actually didn’t do much damage at all, and his main damage… [Continue Reading]

Why Spark is the Best Team Leader

Honestly, I’m like two years too late on this article. Most people have already picked their teams and there’s absolutely no way of changing your team without starting a new account. Some people are insane enough to never pick a team, but most people will tend to pick red, blue or yellow. From my brief research, it seems that Team Mystic, with Articuno as their mascot and Blanche as the team’s leader, is the most popular team. Apparently about 40% of players are with Team Mystic but I can’t actually find any up to date stats, most of these figures… [Continue Reading]
