The Anti-Roller

Rolling is good in Warframe. It’s amazing. Rolling makes you a smaller target. Rolling makes you take less damage. Rolling enables you to reposition and change your direction in an instant. Rolling is a key part of being able to traverse maps quickly and efficiently. The only negative thing about rolling is the fact that it cancels reload animations, but rolling with some weapons at the end of the reload can shave a few seconds off. Basically, rolling is great. Unless you’re playing Limbo. You see, Limbo doesn’t roll. When Limbo does his equivalent of a roll, he enters the… [Continue Reading]

“Ya Wanna See Mah Pokemans?” Part 2 – Some More Pokemon GO

So I’ve been playing Pokemon GO for about a week now. To the point that I better understand how everything works. And I actually have some good Pokemon now. I’ve completed various things, am on part 3 of 8 when it comes to the Mew quest and am now level 20. It turns out, come level 20, that is when the real grind starts. Up until now, it’s all been rather easy. I’ve actually been leveling up all over the place. Things definitely felt slower around levels 17-19, but from about level 6 to level 10, it all happened so… [Continue Reading]

On Acolytes and How Wrong They Are

The Acolytes have just fled again, after a week of, er, ‘terrorizing’ poor, needy Tenno. The appearance of the Acolytes always beings excitement, fear and anticipation to many Tenno for a variety of reasons, but really, the whole thing just makes no sense. Alright, firstly, the only real reason people like the Acolytes is because they drop super rare mods that only one is available elsewhere. Blood Rush is available in the A Rotation of rewards in Lua Spy missions. Everything else is locked behind a bunch of mini-bosses that only come once every six months. The drop rates aren’t… [Continue Reading]

Packing more speed than electromagnetic radiation

There is a beauty in the simplicity of FTL: Faster Than Light. It is a game where you can play with one hand. You can control the whole game with just the mouse assuming it comes with a middle mouse button, which is at least 90% of the computer mice available for sale nowadays. The graphics are rather basic. The game file is a measly 192 MB on my hard drive. Just for comparison, another really simple game I like, Superflight, is 129 MB. And in that game, you do nothing but to glide around in a procedurally-generated environment with… [Continue Reading]

2000th Article Contest Winners

I’m a pretty shitty salesman. I suck at advertising. You can tell, just by looking at how many entries we got in the 2000th Article Contest. Like, 5. It’s my fault, I didn’t really do much advertising. Couldn’t really due to being ill and depressed and having work and stuff to do. So we ended up only getting a handful of entries, which wasn’t helped due to my Reddit posts all being downvoted to heck. It’s almost as if people don’t like any sort of advertising what so ever, even if there are prizes involved. I specifically made this a… [Continue Reading]

Ten More Really Fucking Annoying Warfame Enemies

There’s lots of enemies in Warframe but some of them are really fucking annoying. While things like Nullifiers, as mentioned in the previous article of annoying Warframe enemies, are less annoying now, that doesn’t mean that there’s still a bunch of bastards all waiting to ruin your day. Rattels These little yellow bastards come from nigh invisible blue spawning pads, dropped by Corpus Snipers. You’ll be sitting there happily doing a defense mission when you suddenly see your shields trickling away, only to find that there’s a Rattel zapping you with electricity. “Reinforced” Glass The Corpus aren’t known for their… [Continue Reading]

Fallout 4, Beauty and Grace with Radiation

“I got you a game!” Brother says as he throws a plastic bag at me. “Noooo!” I scream as I stare at my overflowing Steam library, filled with unplayed games. “It’s Fallout 4 though! Game of the Year version! Only cost €15!” Brother counters, thrusting the game into my hands. “You like Fallout, right?” Actually, I don’t really like Fallout. It’s a cool world but it’s too slow and too close to real life. I’ve always been way more of a fantasy person, never been a fan of post-apocalyptic scenarios in radiation-filled landscapes. But Fallout 4 was a gift and… [Continue Reading]

Misfit Eidolon Hunt

“We’re going on an Eidolon hunt!” Frost exclaimed as he rummaged through his arsenal, looking for weapons to take with him. “We’re gonna murder some monsters!” “No, we’re going to capture one monster…” Volt sighed. “Maybe.” “Mate, I haven’t really done this before, just been carried by others!” Frost exclaimed. “I mean, I have a tier 2 Amp for my real self from being carried but I kinda… just did nothing while they killed the Teralyst. Are we going to kill all three?” Volt sighed again. “I just told you. We’re going to capture the Teralyst and see how we… [Continue Reading]

Major League Magic Attends The Mix and Sammy’s Showcase 2018!

This was an eventful summer for Major League Magic! We were able to secure sponsorship from UC Santa Cruz to attend two exciting gaming events. The first, The Media Indie Exchange, is a big expo dedicated to indie games, where a select group of indie game enthusiasts and industry professionals review and select the features games from a large list of applicants. The event took place in Los Angeles, on the roof of the elegant 1010 Wilshire Apartment Complex, and we were lucky enough to get the only air-conditioned room since our game needed an internet connection! All sorts of… [Continue Reading]

The Problems With Sanctuary Onslaught

Sanctuary Onslaught is one of the best ways to level things up. There’s generally a lot of enemies around and they increase in level pretty quickly, meaning your weapons level up pretty fast. It’s a silly, mindless game mode. But it’s also a fucking infuriating game mode at times for various reasons. The first reason is actually reasonably simple. If you’ve already got one or two nuking characters playing, then you’re a dead weight to the team. There’s not enough killing to go around, especially when you’ve got a Saryn turning everyone into toxic mists and filling the room full… [Continue Reading]
