Theorycrafting Thoughts on Galvanized On Kill Effects

Something is bothering me about this upcoming update to gun mods. The idea of buffing guns has always appealed to me. However, I’,m not sure why we’re going down the path we’re going. While I understand that melee was going to get a slap on the butt a little, the gun mods still just… don’t hold water. There seems to be something weirdly off about these new Galvanized mods before we even get them. The whole concept is flawed. Seriously. While the idea behind these mods are cool, there’s something missing here. These mods are all designed to have a… [Continue Reading]

The Pitta Bread ‘Conspiracy’

Living in what is essentially just west of the Middle East, pitta bread is very common. Pitta breads (pita in American English) are flat breads with pockets. They are also very tasty. Pitta bread seems to be best known in two different ways to the more Western world. It’s either cut into slices to use as scoops for dip. Or, more commonly, you wrap a pitta around kebab meat. But there’s something off about the humble pitta bread. The Pitta is a versatile bread. In fact, this humble bread has many forms, all over the Mediterranean and Middle East! Really,… [Continue Reading]

Dear Person with the Buzz Saw

Dear person with the buzz saw, You probably won’t ever read this. After all, why would you? I’m just some random person who lives nearby, completely anonymous to you, writing a rant post on a website you’ve never heard of. And you, you’re a person with a buzz saw, happily doing some DIY. At least, I assume it’s a buzz saw. For all I know, it could be a chain saw. Or an angle grinder. Heck, it might even be some sort of sander. But I don’t know, I’ve never seen it. It belongs to you, someone who lives in… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch: On 5v5

I’ve long stopped playing Overwatch and I’ve even been 99% successful at not writing articles about it either. But after a long conversation with Phovos on the incoming 5v5 changes, plus seeing the community collectively freak out harder than CS:GO’s after the R8 incident, I finally feel like I have at least 500 words to say on the incoming change. Why I like the change Part of me feels bad taking the dev’s side, as I have an unfortunate habit of┬ásiding against the outraged gamer hordes in situations like these. Yet I can’t help but see a lot of positives… [Continue Reading]

The 5 next best Team Rocket counters in Pokemon GO

A while ago, aabicus went over the the 5 best Team Rocket counters in Pokemon GO. His list was very strong for the grunts back then. However, we’ve received more Pokemon over time, and some Grunts have changed. Aabicus’s list is still a great setup that can beat any team you come across. But there are other Pokemon worth considering. Specifically, the ones in this list! Machamp Machamp is great. Sure, you can use Lucario or that other guy. But Machamp is simply too easy to get, power up and give a second move to. Sure, you can give Riolu… [Continue Reading]

Odd Pokemon I’d Like to See Community Days for in Pokemon GO

Community Days are always a lot of fun. After all, how can you not like 1/25 shiny chances and special moves? It’s true, not all Community Days are equal. But no matter the Pokemon, it’s still fun to catch some shinies. There used to be a rather strict pattern when it came to Community Days. However, in 2020, the pattern was changed, and it became open season. Even Pokemon who have shinies, like Machop, Gastly and even Gible, have had a chance. And this means ANY Pokemon could theoretically have a Community Day. Really, the only rule now is that… [Continue Reading]

On Just Buying Things with Platinum

Sometimes, it’s tempting to just buy something with Platinum. Whether it’s a skin from the market or a weapon part you’re missing. The grind for every item isn’t the same or in any way equal. So what do you do? Do you just buy the thing with plat or do you just farm for it? It’s a hard question to answer. Well, it’s a hard question for most people to answer. I tend to just farm the thing no matter what. Unless it’s a Prime that is pissing me off with a missing part. Time VS Money The question always… [Continue Reading]

My Worries about the Sisters of Parvos

I haven’t really done a speculation article in a while. Mostly because my speculations are always wrong. With Warframe, pretty much anything can happen in an update. But this isn’t so much speculation as it is worries and concerns. Ever since we got Call of the Tempestarii, I’ve been worried about the Sisters of Parvos update. After all, it’s a massive update that has been pushed back repeatedly. Too long in the oven? To get an idea how long this update has been pushed back, we were teased ephemeras and weapons for Sisters of Parvos last year. We also had… [Continue Reading]

On Being Genuinely Bad at Team Fortress 2

I never considered myself great at Team Fortress 2. Granted, I knew a lot about the game, and I was a half-decent player. But I was never great. That being said, I could at least hold my own. At the very least, while I may have struggled with pure aiming skill, I did my best to make up for it. Over the years, I learned about a lot of other stuff. From the damage that weapons dealt, to each class’s movement speeds, to being better at dodging. My head was filled with Team Fortress 2 trivia. Sure, I was never… [Continue Reading]

Half-Life 1 At 200 Ping

When you have over 3000 articles on a single blog, sometimes you forget things. That was the case when I started playing Sven Coop with a new buddy of mine. While me and my friend were struggling getting through the levels, it turns out, we didn’t have to. Because aabicus has written lots of articles about Sven Coop. Had I remembered aabicus’s stellar articles, then my friend and I would have had a way, way easier time. Still, it’s been interesting playing through the original Half Life campaign, but in multiplayer. It’s oddly stressful yet fun I should point out,… [Continue Reading]
