A Ramble About Indicators

About twenty minutes ago, I got home from shopping, after one of the most stressful drives in a while. I’m sure we’ve all had one of those days. No matter how confident and safe you are on the road, you simply can’t trust other people to be the same. The trip I make from the shop and back home doesn’t take long, it’s about 10 minutes both ways. Sure, I could theoretically walk to a closer, more expensive shop. But it’s like 32C while in the shade, and most of the walk has no shade at all. As much as… [Continue Reading]

The Change from Avionics into Mods for Railjack

With the last Railjack update, something dramatic happened with modding. Originally, Railjacks had their own sets of mods, called Avionics. These worked very similar to normal mods, but were arranged in a special grid. You could upgrade both the grid and the mods themselves, and combining both gave better boosts. But this was all changed in the Railjack Retrofit update. The grid went away completely and all the Avionics were turned into normal mods. We were given a very standard modding screen, almost identical to normal modding screens for Warframes and weapons. The whole Avionics modding system was completely removed.… [Continue Reading]

Warframe Tips for Free-to-Play Space Ninjas

At first glance, Warframe can seem rather pay-to-win. However, if you dig past that even a little, you can easily climb ranks and grab new gear and weapons. All it takes is a bit of time and patience. But, while you wait, here are some tips and advice on how to make the most of an F2P experience. Starter Platinum When you first start playing Warframe, you actually start off with 50 Platinum. This Platinum can’t be traded, but it is enough for a handful of purchases. Before you get too excited though, it’s worth looking at what you can… [Continue Reading]

How I’d Rework Yareli

I’m going to honest here, Yareli isn’t that great a Warframe. She’s too small and cute to be chopping Grineer in half. But Yareli’s biggest problem is that, well, she doesn’t do that much. There’s no niche for Yareli to claw out for herself, and most other frames are more useful. But not all is lost. Digital Extremes are known to buff weaker Warframes. However, WHEN a Warframe gets reworked is often somewhat random. And if it’s not random, it’s close to a release date for a Warframe’s Prime variant. In the mean time though, I’d like to have a… [Continue Reading]

Prisma Machete

A couple of weeks ago, I had an idea for an article, but it was very late. Rather than turning on my computer and immediately writing the idea down, I ended up with this. An article titled “Prisma Machete”. Unfortunately though, I didn’t write anything else down. It was a blank slate, an empty canvas, for me to spew words onto in the future. Returning to the present, I am struggling to think of things to write about. After all, both Pokemon GO and Warframe had their big, yearly events last week. But the title of this article has nothing… [Continue Reading]

GO Fest 2021 Day 2 – Raids, But Not The Ones We Wanted

For the second day of GO Fest 2021, there was a very obvious theme. A mysterious Pokemon appeared in the Pokemon GO loading screen, and mysterious portals could be seen floating above us. Rather worryingly, the sky was not a standard blue, but dark, purple and ominous. While Day 1 may have just been a bunch of biomes, Day 2 was all about raids. Lots and lots of raids. Actually, too many raids. We had constant raids pretty much all day. Five minute egg timers, and 30 minutes to do raids after they hatch. During this time though, we had… [Continue Reading]

A Nice, Calm First Day of GO Fest

I won’t lie, I’ve been looking forward to GO Fest for a while. For the small price of €5, I can catch a ton of Pokemon and get early access to a new Mythical. Last year’s GO Fest was rather hectic, so was the Kanto festival earlier this year. This year’s GO Fest, at least the first day, was much calmer. Four biomes, varying spawns Just like previous GO Fest expeditions, the 2021 GO Fest was split into four biomes of an hour each. Last year, they were kinda based on emotions, because it was about Jirachi. However, despite this… [Continue Reading]

A Scramble and a New War for Tennocon 2021

On July 17th, we got to see Tennocon 2021. And boy was it… weird. I stayed up until late to watch the show and hopefully get excited. But did I get excited? I’m… not really sure. Normally, a Tennocon event is there to hype up cool, upcoming events and gameplay. TennoLive 2021 did just that, but only for the New War. The New War however has kinda been teased for years. To hype us up, after some quick questions and answers, we got to see a live demo of the beginning of the New War. We got a handful of… [Continue Reading]

The New Graphics in Pokemon GO are Pretty Neat

Out of the blue, Pokemon GO got a visual update. A bunch of graphics were added, sprucing up the game for its 5th anniversary. While the changes are mostly related to gyms, there’s a few nice touches here and there. Sunsets and Gyms First off, the gyms are pretty frickng sweet. They actually look a bit more like arenas filled with people. Of course, gyms aren’t completely to scale, but the fancier graphics really do make raids feel less, well, lame. The gym battles and raids seem more action-packed, as well as all-round better to look at. The nicer thing… [Continue Reading]

Yeah, Really? Yareli

As part of my rush to reach Legendary One, I found myself racing to finish Yareli. As a Warframe, she’s worth 6000 mastery, which is quite a lot. However, I basically went in blind when it came to what Yareli actually does. I essentially believed that Yareli had to be good, or at least middling. After all, her quest had been awful. Surely they wouldn’t make the Warframe awful too? Her abilities feel lackluster. I don’t know why, but Yareli kinda doesn’t seem to do much. She has two crowd control abilities, a ring of slashing damage and her own… [Continue Reading]
