The Ropalolyst – The Worst Best Boss or the Best Worst Boss?

Ah, Nightwave. Bless its cotton socks. It exists to give us free things and remind us of things we’d forgotten about. In this case, an elite Weekly task was to simply kill the Ropalolyst. A very easy 7,000 standing for anyone who’s completed the Sacrifice. Except… ugh, the Ropalolyst fight is bloody awful, for all the wrong reasons. A great fight, but easily ruined. And still broken, a year later. Don’t fight the Ropalolyst on public matchmaking! The Ropalolyst can be a very buggy fight for anyone who isn’t the host. Oh, the fight can bug out for the host… [Continue Reading]

A Complete Idiot Gets Lost in No Man’s Sky

My family is weird. Or at least, some of us are. The person I shall now refer to as D (for privacy reasons) had his birthday a while back, but no one knew what to get him. In the midst of the Steam Summer Sale, we get an answer. No, D doesn’t want anything. He wants us to buy No Man’s Sky, so we can play it together. D loves No Man’s Sky and is proud of how the game has turned itself around. He wanted to share the love. So that’s what I did. I bought No Man’s Sky.… [Continue Reading]

Weird Little Warframe Facts About Weapons

Years and years ago, aabicus wrote an article about little-known mechanics in Team Fortress 2. He went into a detailed list of various things that really aren’t obvious at all. Some of these were minor differences like how a Sniper’s rifle’s laser will detect invisible spies. However, some mechanics were rather large, like how crouching breaks hitboxes. The article is quite an interesting read, and aabicus suggested I write one about Warframe, with my insane knowledge. Small problem with that: There are SO MANY little-known mechanics that it’s impossible to list even some of them in a single item. That… [Continue Reading]

Is Pixelmon the Most Complete Pokemon Game?

Pixelmon is an unofficial Pokemon mod made for Minecraft. It’s actually a mod I’ve discussed here before, and one of our most popular articles goes into depth about how depressing it is to play in single player. But for all the negatives that I throw at Pixelmon, it has an insane amount of features. And it also contains nearly every single Pokemon in the entire Pokemon series. And the most recent update started introducing Gen 8 Pokemon! Yep, we’re starting to get Generation 8 Pokemon. Not all of them, just some of them. The Galarian variants of other Pokemon aren’t… [Continue Reading]

A Strange, Strange Criticism of the Warframe Meta

On June 25th, the Steel Path was announced for Warframe. Simply put, the Steel Path would be an extra option on every single node with added difficulty. Instead of, say, going to E Prime and fighting level 5 enemies, the Steel Path would let you fight level 105 enemies. According to the recent blog post, the Steel Path allows access to higher level enemies. And, of course, there’s a few rewards thrown in. And, amazingly, some mastery. But it’s been clearly stated that this is not an “end game”. In the conversations I’ve seen though, there’s this weird talk about… [Continue Reading]

On Keeping The Daily SPUF Free

Recently, I’ve had a surge of people emailing me, looking to send us “sponsored articles”. The idea is simple. We publish an article that is basically an advert, with a link to whatever the hell it is they’re selling. And they’d pay us money to do so. Now, we don’t get that many reviews, but clearly we are doing something that is making people want to get in touch. However, so far, I’ve turned down every single offer. Why? Because, well, several reasons. Firstly, let’s actually look at the costs. Ever since we moved to SPUF.org, I’ve been paying for… [Continue Reading]

Writing an Article with the ‘Gutenberg’ WordPress Block Editor

So I’ve discussed the Gutenberg Block Editor on WordPress before. The Block Editor is a feature that cam with WordPress version 5.0, which was supposed to completely transform the way you write and build your pages. Clearly WordPress was starting to realise that a large part of their market consisted of people who used WordPress to make actual websites, rather than just blogging and writing. I mean, that’s understandable. In a way. People want to be innovative with their products. But innovation isn’t always a good thing. And the innovation behind the Block Editor is starting to show itself as… [Continue Reading]

Who The Fuck IS Nora Night?

There are tons of mysterious entities in Warframe. From Erra, the Sentient brother of the Lotus, to Onkko and the Quills, all the way to Paladino, Ergo Glast and the Syndicate leaders, we have a lot of crazies. All these strange people who easily communicate with us. Some of these beings only appear once in quests. Or they appear in snapshots and visions, like Erra and the Man in the Wall. But there’s one person who came out from absolutely nowhere. I know we’ve talked about Nightwave a lot lately, but we need to have a look at Nora Night.… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Season 3 Is Basically Already Finished

As of this week, if you have done every single Nightwave task so far, you’ve probably reached level 30. If you have done most of them and skipped a few dailies, then level 30 should be available next week. It’s been, what, five weeks? And Nightwave Season 3 is basically already finished if you play regularly. So, how was it? Meh. Overall, I’d give this season a solid meh/10. It’s nice that we got enemies to farm extra standing from right off the bat, but, if I’m truly honest, this might as well been more of Nightwave Intermission 2. There… [Continue Reading]

The Throwback Challenge Champion Research 2020 Sucks

A while back, I praised the various regional Throwback challenges in Pokemon Go. They consisted of simple tasks. Each one rewarded Pokemon from that region. And we got a cool legendary at the end with an exclusive move. If you completed all of the regional throwback challenges, then you were rewarded with the Throwback Challenge Champion research. Frankly? The research is a massive let down, compared to the regional tasks. A Lot of Work for Little Reward Almost all the tasks in the Champion Research were somewhat draining. Almost everything in the research needed doing lots of times. Feed your… [Continue Reading]
