A Dumb Gang Beasts Chicken Goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019 – Day 2

It’s 9am on a Sunday and I am standing in the middle of a rather empty outdoor food court. It’s really, really quiet here. Like, really quiet. The event is supposed to be opening for early access VIP folks now but it’s quuiiiiieeeettt. Anyway, I’m here for day two of Cyprus Comic Con 2019, and just like yesterday, I’ll be updating as we go along. Hopefully every hour, but we’ll see how it goes. 9:26 – Tried Apex Legends. Found it boring as fuck. Got disconnected (literally, connection died) from my squad, but all I did was wander around in… [Continue Reading]

Medic goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019

It is just past 7 in the morning. I am in a holiday apartment in Nicosia. I am wearing a heavy costume with a mask. I look cute as fuck. And I am going to publish this unfinished. Why? Because I’m getting ready to go to Cyprus Comic Con 2019. And that means I’ll be updating this article as I go along. There wasn’t a Cyprus Comic Con in 2018 because August is too, too fucking hot. April is way cooler but there is always a risk of rain. It actually rained yesterday, funnily enough. We had to go to… [Continue Reading]

The Weirdness of Vox Solaris

A lot of things in Fortuna and the Orb Vallis are very similar to things in Cetus and the Plains of Eidolon. Really, the biggest differences are that Fortuna has its own skateboarding syndicate and that there isn’t a boss that wanders around – you have to go into a specific instance to fight the Orb Vallis bosses. When it comes to Syndicates, Vox Solaris is pretty damn similar to the Quills, but it feels out of place. Quill Onkko’s little base is very hidden away, somewhat off the beaten track. It’s not even accessible until you’ve finished the War… [Continue Reading]

Getting Closer to Legendary Monsters

I’ve noticed a change in Pokemon Go recently. A change when it comes to Legendary Pokemon. There’s something off about them, and not the fact that many of the recent Legendaries can be taken down with just four accounts. No, the change I’ve noticed comes to how… close they are. A while back, I wrote a very angry, very scathing article about Latias, the little red Pokemon that’s more of an airplane than it is a dragon. My biggest criticism of it was that the bastard was way too small a target, moved around too much, attacked too much and,… [Continue Reading]

In Defense of the Bohrok-Kal, Over 15 Years Later

Do you want to feel old? No? Well tough, here’s a fact for you: the original Toa are all 18 years old now. Meaning that they can legally drink, buy cigarettes, vote and consent to sex or marriage in a large number of countries on planet Earth. I don’t know what the age of consent is on the island of Mata Nui, Metru Nui or Spherus Magna in general though, so I’d ask before you offer Gali a drink. For me, that’s not too bad, because I got into Bionicle in 2003, with the release of the Bohrok-Kal. That makes… [Continue Reading]

Drunken Wrestlers 2

I don’t know why, but there’s something incredibly enjoyable about fighting games with rag doll physics. Gang Beasts will always have a place in my heart but when brother said he’d found a fun fighting game, of course we all had to join in. Drunken Wrestlers 2 is a free-to-play early access game on Steam with characters that are just as drunk and derpy as the ones from Gang Beasts. Gameplay is quite simple. You move around with WASD, sprint with Shift, block with Space and attack with the arrow keys. But you have to target who you are fighting… [Continue Reading]

Making Operators Good

I’ve never really liked the whole Operator thing in Warframe. I mean, your Operator has his or her uses, but they don’t have the best personalities and take away from the mystery of the whole Warframe thing, what with them being basically edgy kids from a familiar anime. But that being said, with some effort, you can make them into pretty useful weapons, just like your Warframes. And maybe some cosmetics. Actually, definitely some cosmetics. Because I’ll be honest, most humans in Warframe are pretty fucking ugly and the Operators are no exception. It takes extreme dedication and tedious amounts… [Continue Reading]

The Beauty of Captura

Considering how much I play Warframe, it seems weird how Captura is actually one of my favourite things about Warframe. Captura is basically a photo studio where you can take fancy pictures of your Warframes, introduced in Update 20 alongside Octavia and the quest Octavia’s Anthem. These photo sessions are done in specific Captura Scenes, which can be unlocked in a myriad of ways. Originally though, there were only a handful. A Corpus scene, a Grineer scene and an Infested scene in a Corpus ship, as well as some basic scenes available from Syndicates. Slowly but surely, more and more… [Continue Reading]

A Long List of Little Things I Want In Warframe

Ages ago, I had an idea for a series of articles about things I wanted. I sat on the idea for ages though because I honestly didn’t really know how to do it. The original article was going to be about Elder Scrolls 6, with me loudly arguing about wanting the game to happen in Elswyr or Black Marsh, simply because Bethesda have already pulled off incredibly cool, alien landscapes in previous games. Then it all fell apart when TES6 was teased at E3 because clearly it wasn’t going to be set in either place. At the same time, I… [Continue Reading]

Worst. Stalker. Ever.

Have you seen Stalker recently? If you’ve been doing the Complete 3 Assassinations task from Nightwave lately, then the answer is probably yes. But even if you haven’t, the Stalker appearing out of nowhere and attacking is a pretty regular thing. Stalker always says that he’ll kill us, make us pay for what he did, but after a while, he’s just… not a threat any more. Originally though, Stalker was terrifying. Stalker was an enemy on our level, capable of using Warframe abilities and more than one weapon. His Despair Kunai were thrown with deadly slicing accuracy, his Hate scythe… [Continue Reading]
