The Razorback Armada Returns

So a while back, when Nidus came out, invasions between the Grineer and Corpus were given a little more meaning. For every invasion that was won by one side, they would spend 12 hours occupying the location they’d won and they’d build progress to one of two gigantic enemies. The Grineer are working on a Formorian Fleet and the Corpus are working on a Razorback Armada. Well, the Corpus got there first, probably because they offered us better loot to fight for them, and now we’ve got to fight this… thing as a weekend event. But before we do so,… [Continue Reading]

Ambulas Reborn – Grinding Giant Robot Emus

On Thursday 4th of May, Digital Extremes released Ambulash Reborn, a new Operation (i.e. mini event) for Warframe. Frohd Bek, one of those annoying Corpus guys who likes to make as much as possible, is funding and prototyping a new super beefed up MOA robot to replace the old Ambulas model manufactured on Venus. This new Ambulas is tied to an Animo system, which allows the giant mechanical emus with laser guns on their faces to adapt to their enemies. Frohd Bek promises plenty of Grofit – growth and profit – to anyone who backs his bad 80’s-advert-styled proposals. Well,… [Continue Reading]

The Pacifism Defect

So right now, the first ever Clan-based event is going on. Which is nowhere near as big a deal as it sounds. Events are somewhat common, you’ll see them from time to time, generally over weekends and the like, involving 3 missions that need to be completed to get a prize of some sort. Most of the time, it’s variations on a theme, like Darvo running away from debt collectors, or teasing new main-game content via events like Rathuum and the Index Preview. The Pacifism Defect isn’t much different. It features a new game mode, Evacuation (not to be confused… [Continue Reading]

Scream Fortress VIII is here!

Yep, number 8. Scream Fortress fucking 8. It’s here. What’s in it? Maps, cosmetics, unusual effects, the usual stuff. All community stuff mostly. Also, Maple Ridge Event. I haven’t played that map since my 4v4 days. Holy fuck. Really, all this year is is an extension of the Merasmissions from last year. There’s new missions for the new maps, and a new key and crate, and cosmetics. I’ll be updating this a bit at a time. Anyway, I’m just posting the information here for here’s sake. I made a SPUF thread as well but you don’t care. Oddly, there’s no… [Continue Reading]

Upcoming Overwatch and Payday Halloween events!

Today was a big day for gaming announcements! Over on the Payday subreddit, players were able to discover leaks suggesting that new weapons, DLCs, heisters, maps, and difficulties were coming to Payday 2. Yes, that’s right, new difficulties. ‘Mayhem’ will be between Overkill and Deathwish, and ‘One Down’ is going to be the new hardest difficulty in the game.  While its name suggests that players will only be allotted one incapacitation before going into custody, we don’t know much more than that. Hopefully it comes with some balance tweaks beyond just that. And today the official announcement finally went live: Safehouse… [Continue Reading]

Happy Late Birthday, Team Fortress!

I know I’m late with this, and Team Fortress’s birthday was the 24th of August, but Valve is late with everything so hopefully they forgive me. Anyway, let me get all the fireworks and confetti out of the way… Anyway, back to the actual event itself. Twenty years is a pretty damn long time. Older than my sister, in fact. Yes, Team Fortress is older than my little sister. That… is a worrying thought. It’s a very impressive thing though, that a class-based first person shooter series of games is still around. Despite the fact that the little, Short-Circuit-killable bouncing… [Continue Reading]

Riveting Reviews of Randomness – a Daily SPUF contest

It’s that time again! Time for a Daily SPUF contest! With prizes and stuff! In out other contests, the theme has always been Team Fortress 2. Which makes sense, since we’re a blog that mainly focuses on Team Fortress 2. This time round, we’re venturing away from our comfort zone. Far, far away from our comfort zone. So far away that we’re lurching into undiscovered terrain, like going to Frostflow Lighthouse at level 10 in Skyrim sort of undiscovered terrain. In Riveting Reviews of Randomness, your job is simple. Play a game that you have never even installed before and… [Continue Reading]

Consternation and Conversation

When reading through Medic’s summary of the community event ‘A Week of Love and Hate 2’ the last thing I expected to see was my own name being congratulated at the end of it, as well as the promise of a random game and an article about me of all things. I’d only ever entered for the hell of it, as I figured it might be fun tackling the topic of Sniper from both sides considering I love to play as him, but I’m not blind to his dodgy secondary designs nor the fact that he’s a strictly love/hate class… [Continue Reading]
