The Sentients are Bastards

The Sentients are bastards. There, I said it. While maybe insulting the next biggest threat is probably a bad idea, I want to point out that the Sentients are bastards and they could have stopped all of this. There never had to be a new war. Or, really, an old war. But here we are, fighting Sentients. But what ARE Sentients? The Sentients are an AI race created by Orokin engineers, who were designed to go to the “Tau system to prepare it for Orokin rule”. They were given the ability to adapt, build and terraform and were sent to… [Continue Reading]

Okay the April Fools Minecraft Snapshot is Awesome…

Minecraft always gets the best April Fools jokes. Normally most April Fools jokes are temporary, but Minecraft always comes up with something cool. This year, Mojang came up with 20w14Infinite, a Minecraft Snapshot that includes, well, everything. Millions of different worlds, all in one, uh, world. All made by throwing books into Nether Portals The premise is simple. You take a Book and Quill, you write some gibberish in it, you close it and sign it and throw the book into a Nether Portal. The Nether Portal will change colour and, as you step inside, you are greeted with a… [Continue Reading]

Tuxxy

The Tuxxy is a very special cosmetic. It is one of the two all-class TF2 shirts, the other being the Dead of Night. In fact, it is the only TF2 cosmetic that is made to be an all-class shirt in the first place. The Dead of Night started off as a Spy-only cosmetic and was only made all-class three years later. The Tuxxy give every class a white dress shirt and a black bow tie. Every class except for Pyro, Medic, and Spy also get French cuffs with a gold cufflink on each cuff. The Enginner only has one cuff… [Continue Reading]

The Split Flights Mod

On 27th March 2020, Baro Ki’Teer appeared with a brand new mod that cost 300 Ducats. This mod had been seen before, accidentally leaked via Transmuting. But it remained without a proper release for a very long time until people could get it normally. The mod in question is Split Flights, a mod specifically for Bows. Now, we get mods for specific weapon types all the time, but why is am I writing an article about this one? Well, I feel like it’s fundamentally flawed. Split Flights is simple at first. Whenever you hit an enemy, you get +100% Multishot… [Continue Reading]

The Exorcizor

It’s been a long time since I last talked about TF2 cosmetics, no? The Exorcizor is a shirt cosmetic added during the 2012 Halloween event. Originally exclusive to the Spy, a patch in 2016 made it available to the Soldier, Pyro, and Medic as well. It is a clergy shirt with a cross on a gold chain. The Soldier’s and Pyro’s grenades are removed with this cosmetic, and a zipper is added to the front of Pyro’s asbestos suit. The cross is specific for each class: the Spy’s cross is made out of two knives, Medic has a medical cross,… [Continue Reading]

Why Operation Scarlet Spear is Bad

From my point of view, Operation Scarlet Spear isn’t very good. I’m not going to claim that it’s the worst thing ever, because that’s not true at all. But there are a number of problems that need to be talked about. And rather than getting all angry about everything, I’m going to go through each of these problems one by one. Like I said before though, I’m not going to mention bugs. Bugs can be fixed. There are fundamental flaws with this event though, and those can’t be fixed. The Lore is all wrong Firstly, the lore is all wrong.… [Continue Reading]

What The Fuck is Warframe’s Lore Anyway? – New War Lore

Last time I sat down and chatted about Warframe lore, we stopped at the end of the Sacrifice quest. That was… a while ago. But rather than go through all that old lore again, I’ve decided to just skip ahead and start talking about the lore for the New War, which is supposedly the next big thing. So sit down and strap yourselves in because we’ve got quite a bit of stuff to talk about. A warning before I start: This article CONTAINS SPOILERS. It is discussing a huge amount of newer lore, which newer players might not be able… [Continue Reading]

On Playing As The Devil Himself

I’ve been out of the loop when it comes to Team Fortress 2 for a while, so I don’t really know if Engineer is still considered evil and hated and all of that. From what I’ve seen, it’s still Pyro and Sniper who people seem to hate, for various reasons. Engineer though is a bit more complicated, both in how loved and hated he can be and why. But I have a bit of a secret that I’ve been hiding for ages: I’ve… always technically been a bit of an Engineer main. “But wait! You’re MEDIC! Not Engineer!” Yeah, I… [Continue Reading]

Things the Scarlet Spear Operation Probably Needs

Operation Scarlet Spear has left an awful taste in people’s mouths. Despite being a long-wanted event, the amount of grind, the bugs and the all-round confusion have made the operation a pain in the butt. People aren’t enjoying the missions at all. But while bugs and the like will be fixed eventually, here are a few… quality of life features I think this operation needs. Better Reward Scaling on Ground Missions No matter how you look at it, it’s better to do Murex if you want credits. While Murex are slower missions, they are somewhat easier to cheese and give… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear is Absolutely Pointless Solo

There’s a LOT of problems with Operation Scarlet Spear, which I’ll get to in time. But for me, right now, the biggest issue is that these missions are arbitrarily harder if you do them solo. You are forced to join a team if you want decent rewards or if you want, well, efficiency. There’s no way around it. Is solo doable? Definitely. In fact, solo is perfectly doable. With just a Limbo, you can make the Railjack mission simple as heck. The ground mission requires nothing more than a Sarpa to get rid of the Condix’s armour. I managed to… [Continue Reading]
