What the Hell is up with Pokemon Go Battle Recommendations?

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with the recommendations Pokemon Go gives you when you fight things? Unless you have almost no Pokemon or are brand new and don’t know better, going with recommended options is always a bad idea. As in, recommended Pokemon can actually sometimes be the worst thing you can use. I’m not even saying that you need to know everything about Pokemon and stuff like that. Sure, knowing your basic counters (like water beating fire, fire beating ice, ground beating electricity, things like that) is very useful, but it seems like whatever algorithm chooses recommended Pokemon… [Continue Reading]

A Simple Modding Guide for Weapons

Modding in Warframe can be tricky. Between the random rarity of mods you need, the time you have to play, the amount of credits you have and the amount of Endo you are able to obtain, making sure your weapons are strong enough to deal with enemies isn’t an easy task. And then you have to work out what mods you have to stick on your weapons in the first place. Well, here’s the really, really simple guide. Step 1: Base Damage Mods. You want to get these mods, put them on your weapons and fully rank them if possible.… [Continue Reading]

Troubleshooting Printers is Torture

Printers should be banned. They are evil, horrible, expensive, satanic things that cause nothing but pain and suffering. They should be tried in the Hague for their crimes against humanity. Printers, simply put, are the worst. Why am I writing about printers again when I have already complained about printers in the past? Because there are some people out there who aren’t convinced and think that printers are fine, that it’s all the user’s fault that they can’t print stuff out. Those people are wrong. Also, it just took me 45 minutes to print out a single A4 file. Why… [Continue Reading]

What To Do With Rivens? A Simple Riven Guide

Even though I’m not really doing Sorties lately, I still always seem to have a couple of unwanted Riven mods lying around. Riven mods are unique as they can be for any one weapon, have a wide variety of stats and make some weapons insanely powerful. The stats on these mods aren’t set in stone though, they change every so often, whenever the developers think a weapon is too strong or too weak. There’s also the strange fact that you can only ever have a maximum of 90 Riven mods, with Riven slots costing 20 Platinum a piece – the… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon Go and the Chances of Getting a Better Fish

After what felt like a small eternity, Cresselia has left our Legendary Raids, swiftly replaced by the badass water beast known as Kyogore. Cresselia’s return brought with it the chance to find a Shiny Cresselia from raids, but the fact that Cresselia is a somewhat boring boss to fight (a tanky psychic type meaning nothing but Tyranitars) and that she’s just not that cool a person meant that getting people to do raids was tricky. Even I wasn’t that enthralled, I just wanted to get a shiny one and call it a day. But I also would have liked a… [Continue Reading]

The Power That Is The Adaptation Mod

Adaptation is an amazingly powerful mod. It’s a Warframe mod that allows you to adapt to damage that you take for a small amount of time, earning damage resistance in the process. The best way to describe it, really, is with an example. But trust me, it’s a cool mod. So let’s say that I am playing as Nidus and I get shot by a Grineer Lancer. That Lancer does Impact damage to me, so I get 10% Impact damage resistance for a little bit from my Adaptation mod. I get shot again before the Adaptation damage resistance goes away,… [Continue Reading]

The Long, Slow Grind Towards The Next Mastery Rank

Right now, I am about halfway through the master required to reach Mastery Rank 27. If things continue as they are, it will still be a long, long trek until I actually reach MR27. Why? Because there is a lot of stuff that’s simply a pain in the ass to level up. For most weapons, leveling things up is pretty easy. You could probably get to MR16, the maximum rank needed to obtain all weapons in the game, by simply buying weapon blueprints from the shop, building those then leveling up, alongside your normal farming of warframes and relics. Your… [Continue Reading]

My Problem With Star Wars After Episode 6

I’m not as big a nerd and fan of Star Wars as my brother is, but I won’t deny that Star Wars is a cool franchise. A weird mixture between a space opera and a space cowboy shooter film with sword fighting and magic and massive battles. There’s a little something for everyone. There’s even a princess, although I’m not quite sure Leia works as a Disney Princess yet. But while the movies are overall well-received, they do have problems. Weirdly though, most of my issues are with Episodes 7 and 8. I can’t say that they’re bad movies, because,… [Continue Reading]

The Eternal Quest for More Fonts

I have too many fonts. Too, too many fonts. As it stands, I have about 8000 files in my Fonts folder. It has reached a point where the drop down window in Adobe Illustrator no longer works, because I simply have too many fonts. Or it might be because there’s one or two corrupted mods in there somewhere and I’m too lazy to go through all 8000 fonts and find which one it is. These fonts cause issues in other programs too. I can’t change the font in Windows Movie Maker without causing a five minute hang and MS Paint… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave – An Intermission

It seems as though the gap between Nightwave Episode 1 and Nightwave Episode 2 ended up being way, way longer than intended. To the point that it’s been impossible getting decent amounts of Nitain lately. To the point that my leftover Wolf Creds sat in my inventory for ages, until I realised I could sell them for 5,000 credits EACH and made myself a nice 1 million credits. In order to fix this, Nora Night has sent us an Intermission, a short Nightwave event until July 5th, which will keep us stocked up with Nora Creds and a few other… [Continue Reading]
