Vector Artwork Is Awesome

You see that Daily SPUF logo up there? The one in the top corner of your current tab? The little black sticky bomb? The favicon? That there is a small PNG file. If I wanted to make that bigger, it would go all pixel-y and horrible. Of course, that little sticky bomb is a smaller version of the somewhat official Daily SPUF logo (which is honestly just the Lobster font and the sticky bomb from the Demoman’s class emblem) and I have a full-sized logo somewhere, but if I just made that favicon bigger, it would look bad. Ah, I… [Continue Reading]

The Very Sudden December Raid Event

All of a sudden, not only did we suddenly get a whole weird evolution themed event, centered around Pokemon who evolve with items or in other strange ways, but we also very weirdly got a three hour raid event, on Saturday the 7th. This raid event featured not Pokemon who evolve with items, nor Pokemon who evolve in other weird ways, but… just the Kanto Starter Pokemon and their evolutions. So we had Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander (in level 1 raids), Ivysaur, Wartortle, Charmeleon (in level 2 raids), Venusaur, Blastoise and Charizard (in level 4 raids) popping up on all applicable… [Continue Reading]

Risk of Rain 2 and a Really Weird Difficulty Spike

I’ve been playing a lot of Risk of Rain 2 lately and, thanks to the help of my siblings and one of my siblings’ significant other, we’ve managed to get a lot unlocked. Every time we play and inevitably die, there’s always a “one more run” feel. And since it’s (mostly) pretty low in terms of computer resources (although far more than the original), we can play Risk of Rain 2 on all our crappy laptops. In fact, both my brother and I nominated Risk of Rain 2 for Steam’s Game of the Year award, because frankly it’s the only… [Continue Reading]

Finely Balancing Helping Newbies in Warframe

The other day, while doing random fissures with a clan mate, they asked how I’m still playing this game when I’m MR27 and other clan mates are already MR28. I kinda shrugged and didn’t give them a whole answer. Often the case is that there’s always something little to farm, like new Primed gear, or earning Focus, or things like that. But the one thing I neglected to mention is that I mostly just like helping random players, whether it’s accompanying someone as they take down a particularly annoying Lich or helping someone find Cephalon fragments on Mars. It’s a… [Continue Reading]

Burgers, Meatballs and Other Lumps of Meat

As I was writing this the other day, I had burgers cooking in the oven. I made them a bit too thick and wanted to make sure they were completely cooked all the way through, because I used pork mince rather than beef mince. The smell is pretty nice but somewhat overpowered by a BBQ sauce I made because I’m going to cook BBQ chicken drumsticks tomorrow. But as I was making the burgers, a simple thought wandered into my mind: “Oh my god, this is actually really easy.” And the more I think about it, the more I think… [Continue Reading]

Different Ways to Play Skyrim

At the base of it all, Skyrim isn’t really that amazing a game. On release, it was filled with billions of bugs, and to this day through not only the normal version but also Skyrim Special Edition, there’s a ton of bugs that need community patches to fix. Most of Skyrim’s fame comes from its accessibility and good looks, but also because it’s an Elder Scrolls game that finally has actual dragons in it. Let’s face it, those dragons are cool. Frankly though, Skyrim hasn’t aged that well, despite being ported into a 64 bit version and for newer consoles… [Continue Reading]

On Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter Pudding is weird. It’s bread and butter and milk and eggs and sugar. But it’s… it’s so tasty. And probably really bad for you. Bread Pudding is the same thing. But bread and butter pudding and bread pudding are kinda two different puddings. Not the same thing. But I made some bread and butter pudding and I just want to share how simple this is. Simple Bread and Butter Pudding Ingredients: Small loaf of white bread Butter, softened 2-3 eggs A bunch of sugar A bottle of milk Some sort of thing to sprinkle though the pudding,… [Continue Reading]

2500 Articles?

Have we… have we really just hit 2500 articles? Is this really the 2500th article? Really? I… I don’t believe it. Well, I do believe it because I’ve written this article about the Daily SPUF hitting 2500 articles, but it’s still pretty unbelievable. I mean, I did a triple take when I saw how many articles we had published. I had to double check and make sure the stats were correct. And then I went and re-installed a plugin that told me how many words have been written on the Daily SPUF, as well as calculating some other statistics which… [Continue Reading]

On Re-Working Eximus Units

The idea of bigger, more powerful enemies scattered among normal mooks and baddies is a great idea. They give you something different to fight while also making you prioritize things. But Eximus units in Warframe fucking suck. Eximus units are currently just all round annoying. There is nothing particularly interesting about them, they don’t relay any important information and, as threatening as they are, they tend to die as quickly as anything else. Meanwhile, there are other powerful units that actually feel somewhat rewarding to fight against, like the Nox, which can still be shot to death but can be… [Continue Reading]

5 Pokemon You Should Be Collecting and Getting Ready To Evolve for December’s Community Day Weekend

just like December 2018, December 2019’s Community Day in Pokemon Go won’t feature one Pokemon but will in fact reprise all the Pokemon featured in community days this year, everything from the almighty Swinub to the honestly completely useless Slakoth family. But at the same time, from 9am until 9pm on the 14th and 15th of December, you’ll be able to evolve any Pokemon from a previous Community Day to get its special Community Day Exclusive Move. But with 22 Pokemon with exclusive moves, which Pokemon should you prioritize? Well, here’s a handy list for you all. 1. Meteor Mash… [Continue Reading]
