Infinite Lives

How many times have you been in near-death situations? Hopefully none. Hopefully you’ve never seen your life flash before your eyes. But there’s always been that case where you’ve stepped off the curb and nearly been clipped by a speeding vehicle, or you slip while going down the stairs and manage to catch yourself. Little moments like that. But what if we think about the opposite? Think about how maybe you’re on the brink of death. Every time you close your eyes, every time you blink, you think it might be the last. But you’re stubborn. You’re desperately trying to… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch Adds Hamster Droideka

The newest Overwatch hero came completely out of left field. (Or, to be more, specific, the moon.) The unexpected hamster is even more surprising since ‘Hammond’ as a character has been the most anticipated new hero since Sombra and Doomfist. Ever since the Horizon Lunar Colony map was added, revealing that the only two escaped test subjects were Winston and ‘Hammond’, people have been theorizing that Blizzard will add a new chimp hero. These theories conflated with the jetpack cat meme that was born around the same time, further expanding the list of species fans were hypothesizing, and ever since… [Continue Reading]

5 Tips For Going Infamous in Payday 2

Payday 2‘s Infamy mechanic is designed to increase replayability, but it can be daunting since it’s non-reversible. There are some things you can do to make your next level-up marathon easier, so without further ado, here are 5 Things To Do Before Going Infamous #1) Make sure you have a good primary and secondary weapon with no reputation level requirements. I recommend the Interceptor .45 pistol and an akimbo SMG. Speaking of akimbo SMGs: #2) Since you’ll retain any weapons in your inventory, fill all your remaining weapon slots with the priciest gun available. At the time of this video,… [Continue Reading]

On Dragon Cave and Other View-Based Collection Games

In 2009, I was at peak Dragon Addiction and was looking for anything to sate my desire to be a dragon. Sometime during that year, I found the website Dragon Cave, a site dedicated to breeding and collection dragons. The idea is simple: you pick up an egg, either a fresh new one from the Cave or from a pile of eggs abandoned by other players, and you feed it with clicks and views. After 4-7 days, if the egg gets enough views, it hatches and you need to feed your new hatchling more clicks and views. After 4-7 more… [Continue Reading]

Rambling About the Corpus

The Corpus aren’t treated fairly in Warframe. Most of the time they’re simply set to one side. Most of the time, we have to deal with pissed off Grineer. The Natah quest featured Grineer. The War Within featured Grineer. The Silver Grove, Chains of Harrow, the Plains of Eidolon, the Sands of Inaros and even the shitty quest that is the Limbo Theorem are all Grineer places. What is Corpus-orientated? The Glast Gambit. And that quest was worse than the Limbo Theorem. The best Corpus thing we got lately was the Corpra Tennogen skin for Excalibur, the Supra Vandal, the… [Continue Reading]

Ordis Deserves Better

I’ve been meaning to write another article about our good friend Ordis for a while, and the Sacrifice is the perfect opportunity to do so. All these years, Ordis has been by our side, helping us out, looking after our quarters, sorting out our Warframes and building our weapons for us. Ever since we woke up, weak and confused, Ordis has been there. Heck, he was the third person to speak to us, after Captain Vor threatening us and Lotus waking us up. Ordis has always been there. Ordis cares about us. But frankly, we treat him badly. Okay, maybe… [Continue Reading]

Payment in Detonite Injectors and Fieldrons

I’ve been doing a lot of Invasions lately. Or rather, looking at invasions and wondering whether I can be bothered to do them or not. And then eventually doing them anyway because I need loot. Well, I say loot, I mean components. Well, I say components, I mean a handful of resources to build clan tech weapons. Alright, so Invasions are simple. There’s two types: you either have Corpus attacking Grineer nodes or vice versa, or you have Grineer or Corpus fighting off Infested, often called an Infested Outbreak. If it’s an Infested Outbreak and the mission node under attack… [Continue Reading]

How the Justice League Movie COULD Have Been Great.

Whether you’re a Marvel fan or a DC fan, I think we can all agree that the Justice League movie wasn’t that great. It wasn’t the worst thing on the planet, it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t amazing either. Something was off about the whole movie. But luckily, there’s a three step guide that the people behind DC movies can follow to make sure that their movies can turn out better. Because competition is good and I’d love for DC movies to be as good and popular as Marvel movies. Thing the First: Get a Better Villain There’s a lot… [Continue Reading]

100% Not A Newbie Anymore…

Ever since I started playing Warframe, I’d write silly Warframe fan fictions, many of which would get posted here on the Daily SPUF should we ever be short of articles. They’d feature a young, newbie Volt and his friend, a more experienced Frost, as they wandered around the Warframe universe, generally avoiding the whole Operators Controlling Them thing. The Volt was clearly based on me, and various other characters were based on other people too. I hadn’t written one in a while. Then when I went to write one the other day, I realised I’m not actually that newbie Volt… [Continue Reading]

SPOiLER ALERT: DON’T DEAD OPEN INSIDE

After Hotel Echo is overrun by junkers (survivalists) using hungries (humans infected by Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis, whose new big thing is to eat flesh, and who do so quite indiscriminately.) to batter down the fences, Sergeant Eddie Parks manages to escape with a single soldier (Kieran Gallagher, whose main motivation for enlisting was to escape the brutal overcrowding of England’s last human enclave, Beacon), two female staff members, and Test Subject Number One. At Echo, Dr. Caroline Caldwell has been studying and dissecting anomalous specimens: feral children infected by the hungry pathogen who retain higher reasoning abilities and behaviors. Helen Justineau… [Continue Reading]
