The Warframe Saint of Altra Update – First Thoughts?

I’m a little bit angry at this update. After all, it killed the blessed Fortuna 69 with its awkward timing, and that place was as saintly, probably more saintly, than this update. After all, the Saint of Altra brings with it a bunch of new things, most notably things to kill people with. Things that kill people while supposedly being vaguely saintly. There are four main things that the Saint of Altra brought with it. The first is Gauss, which I can’t tell you much about since he’s currently building in my foundry. All I know right now is that… [Continue Reading]

Rest in Peace Fortuna 69 – Or not!

Super edit: Turns out the DEvelopers heard our cries and brought back Fortuna 69! Now we can all be nice together again! Unfortunately, it seems like the Saint of Altra update claimed a victim and it wasn’t Volt or Zephyr being overtaken by Gauss. The Fortuna 69 instance, which had been kept alive since Fortuna was released back in October last year, failed to survive the update. Due to unfortunate timing, it seems like no one was online to stay in Fortuna 69 while other Warframe players were updating their game. Normally instances, servers used to put people in relays,… [Continue Reading]

On Never Streaming

I’ve always kinda wanted to stream. Whether it be streaming video games or doing art, the idea of showing what you are doing, recording your actions and people wandering in and saying hi and talking to you all sound very nice. You end up making friends and maybe even building a community. Heck, you don’t even need to have anyone watching your streams, you can just stream yourself playing games and talking to some guy in the background in Spanish, not caring that no one is actually there, doing a 30 minute survival mission with three squad mates that are… [Continue Reading]

A Strange Kubrow

It had been a while since Volt had interacted with others. Most of the missions he had done, he had set off on his own, finished the mission and returned to his ship, only to rush off, on his own, to another mission. Even more difficult tasks, like half-hour survival missions and defending cryopods against waves of enemies, all of that, he had done alone. Aside from that Hydralyst hunt, but that was a story for another time. Speaking of that Hydralyst hunt, that was what snapped Volt back into Tenno society. While wandering around in Cetus, trying to decide… [Continue Reading]

A Really Stupid Article About Pokemon Types

This is going to sound dumb, so bear with me. There are too many Pokemon types. Like, way too many. To the point that some of them are overlapping each other. And honestly? It might be cool to see a Pokemon type shake up in the future, so I’m just gonna go with this. Really, I don’t even have a place to stand when it comes to Pokemon and Pokemon types and balancing and all that. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Go where the only real meta is “high attack and a type that’s super effective” and I had… [Continue Reading]

The ‘New’ PvP Charge Attack System

I’ve been meaning to talk about the changes to Charge Attacks in Pokemon Go’s Trainer Battles but I keep on getting sidetracked by other things, like how cool Rayquaza is and how Suicune sucks. But I think this is worth talking about since it’s made Trainer Battles, both against Team Go Rocket, the three Team Leaders and other players a lot more bearable. The original system for charge attacks meant tapping furiously on your screen. You’d get your charge attack ready and then you’d have to power it up by tapping like a fucking lunatic, something that you were basically… [Continue Reading]

A Thousand-Year Slumber – A Quest for Jirachi

Jirachi, for reasons unknown, is the last Generation 3 Pokemon to be released. Being a mythical Pokemon, we all knew it would be thrown either into some sort of special research or into EX-Raids. Deoxys got the EX-Raid treatment, being split into two useless forms, one okay form and one form that has all the health and none of the damage. Mew and Celebi got special research tasks. It probably would have been weird if Jirachi had been thrown into EX-Raids. This special research, dubbed A Thousand-Year Slumber, is a collection of tasks which, once you have completed all 7… [Continue Reading]

More Rambling About Dawnguard

I recently picked up Skyrim again in the hopes that I’d be able to make a mod that actually summons a dragon of my own creation. When that all failed, I ended up looking through mods in the hopes that someone had made a dragon follower mod that actually worked. When I came up short, I decided just to use my summoned dragons mod that I made ages ago. But then I decided I wanted to summon Durnehviir, the undead dragon who lives in the Soul Cairn. That all meant playing Dawnguard again. On my Dragon character. Aside from the… [Continue Reading]

More on Warframe Armour Sets

I mentioned the other day how the Lodestar Armour Bundle looked really cool but annoyingly floated in mid air rather than being connected to your Warframe’s body, but frankly that article has gone and opened up a can of worms and 500 word rambles. The armour in Warframe is kinda weird and ill-fitting and quite often not armour at all. Let’s take the Avia armour set. Which amazingly has THREE variants: normal, prisma and solstice. But none of these pieces would provide actual armour, they’re just little shiny bits that hang off our arms and legs. There’s no protection to… [Continue Reading]

It’s Not Pay To Win, It’s Pay To Save Time

An article on a different gaming website has brought up the question whether Warframe is Pay to Win or not, and frankly everyone is arguing over the nuance of the question, about what ways Warframe is or is not Pay to Win. First off though, we have to define Pay to Win. The phrase generally implies that you can spend money to get an advantage over your team mates, but there are variations of this. Can you buy things in Warframe that you can’t obtain by playing that affect gameplay and give you an advantage? Not really, no, all Warframes… [Continue Reading]
