Weird things that happen when Warframe gets laggy

Lag is a universal thing. Everyone can get a bad internet connection simply because we’re lazy, cheap beings who can’t ever do anything properly. Luckily for me and my shitty connection and overall bad location in general, Warframe is actually somewhat playable, even up to 300+ ping. Which happens sometimes, because each mission is peer-to-peer, rather than it all being hosted on one server. That being said, strange things can happen when your connection starts bouncing around. Doors Stop Opening By far the most common issue is when doors, which are reliant on the host’s connection, start to falter. At… [Continue Reading]

Reddit Admins are planning to remove custom CSS from subreddits. That’s stupid.

Ah, good old CSS. Cascading Style Sheets. CSS is beautiful. It can do so much stuff. It’s what makes the internet a beautiful place. CSS allows the customization of pretty much any site, works mostly the same on the majority of browsers (and almost always has workarounds for backwards bastard browsers like Internet Explorer) and that’s all it does. CSS makes things pretty. CSS is the language of style. Unlike HTML, Javascript or anything else, 99% of the time CSS keeps its coding claws out of actual content and focuses solely on looks. CSS allows me to make the Night… [Continue Reading]

The Cities of Skyrim

In my eternal struggle to find games that grab me, I find myself playing Skyrim and wandering around in its frozen wastelands, large forests, mammoth-filled plains, more frozen wastelands and a few other nice territories scattered around the place. I’ve gone and talked about the hellhole that is Markarth, but I’ve never got around to really talking about the other major cities. So let’s do that! We start off with Whiterun and its small village Riverwood. This is your first point of safety in the game after escaping Helgen and the scary black dragon. It’s a nice place mostly, with… [Continue Reading]

Farming for Credits

Even space ninjas need money. Okay, they’re not using their money to buy groceries and things like that. They’re most likely throwing it away buying and leveling up weapons they don’t really need in order to reach their next mastery rank, but still. They use money. They need it. Vast amounts of it. I mean, come on, a single forma costs like 20k credits to build. But where can a space ninja get all this money? Most normal missions only reward up to about 7k credits at a time, and unless you’re a Nekros with Desecrate and a Secura Lecta,… [Continue Reading]

7 Ways to Improve the Operator

I still hate those damn space kids. Right now, they’re a horrible waste of pixels and I hate them and their stupid, hypocritical observations. Yes, the Corpus are greedy, but we’re space ninja mercenaries killing them to get a stupid barrel for a shiny new gun, so get off your damn high horse. That being said, the Operators could all be improved. Here are some ways we can do that.   Level up Operators the same way you level up Warframes. Operators should start at unranked and get to level 30. By using your Operator, you should level him or… [Continue Reading]

On the Hell Hole that is the Sortie

Sorties are daily mini-quests that are super hard. They feature three super hard missions, with enemies ranging from level 50 to level 100. Each mission generally has an extra modifier, like enemies having stronger armour, fires exploding all around the mission, half health or shields, hugely decreased mobility or, if you’re lucky, weapon restrictions, such as Shotgun, Secondary, Sniper or Bow only. I’ve mentioned them before, and only done a handful of them because of their difficulty. Of course, being super hard, I generally avoided them. Despite my love for my Ignis and my Volt, they are simply not strong… [Continue Reading]

The Braton and the Soma

When I started Warframe and was given a choice of my first starter weapons, I decided to go for the MK1-Paris, the Lato and the MK1-Bo. A bow, a bog-standard pistol and a long, pointy stick. I could have alternatively chosen the MK1-Braton, the Kunai or the Skana. While the Kunai and the simple sword-like Skana are rather ninja-y, the MK1-Braton is an automatic rifle, about as nonsensical as the (admittedly boring and horrible) Lato or a flamethrower like the Ignis when it comes to ninja weaponry. That being said, the MK1-Paris eventually just wasn’t cutting it any more. The… [Continue Reading]

A Chat about Dragonborn

Dragonborn is the other big DLC for TESV: Skyrim. Unlike Dawnguard, which as a Vampires VS Vampire Hunters story, Dragonborn mostly continues the whole Dovahkiin storyline, and goes hand in hand with your dragon-murdering character. There’s a lot of nice things about it, but something… bothers me about Dragonborn, I just don’t know what. First off, Dragonborn is a real nostalgia trip to all the Morrowind fans out there. While you won’t convince the hardcore fans, those who enjoyed Morrowind will definitely appreciate the island of Solstheim and the familiar landscape and architecture of Raven Rock. They’ll also love the… [Continue Reading]

The Nonsense that is the Glast Gambit Quest

Who likes gambling? Raise your hands! Well, none of you probably like gambling as much as the fictional Nef Anyo, a nefarious piece of shit character from Warframe, who you could formally kick the shit out of on Phobos before he was replaced with the Sergeant. Anyway, this Nef is a complete cock. Because back in the last major update, he went and fucking kidnapped the children from a colony of peaceful folks called the Mycona and left them defenseless. The Perrin Sequence, a bunch of friendly Corpus, are offering vast amounts of money to pay their ransoms, but Nef… [Continue Reading]

It’s All Lilith’s Fault

I’m not normally a hateful person. I have strong dislikes for things, but I often don’t have the heart to say I genuinely hate something. But like everything, there are always exceptions, and after playing a little Borderlands 1 and 2, and seeing the end to Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel, I’ve found myself someone I can justifiably hate. Well, not just someone. Almost everyone hates the Claptrap unit in Borderlands 2, and for good reason. Being dragged through an icy hellhole for the lengthy duration of the tutorial area is bad enough without Claptrap screaming at me all the way through.… [Continue Reading]
