A Bad Day

Normally there would be a, well, normal article here. Probably something about video games. Most likely Warframe. Occasionally I would ramble about something in my life. But I dialed back on the personal life stuff a while back. As part of a new year’s resolution or something. Anyway, yeah, normally this is a video game blog. Today though? Not at all. Heck, I am not even bothering with spell check. Or headings. Funnily enough, those annoying H4 things, I swear they slightly boosted our daily views. I’m rambling a bit today. Sorry. Although this isn’t a normal article, I will… [Continue Reading]

A Biased Guide on What to Subsume and Use with Helminth

I’m pretty biased when it comes to the Helminth system. When it comes to the surface idea, I think the Helminth system is great. But when you look more deeply at it, you can tell that it’s all a mess. The costs are arbitrary and all over the place, the abilities chosen are weird, some have been arbitrarily nerfed. And, of course, there was the Marked for Death ability that made Ash good for about five seconds. That being said, I’ve been playing around a little with the Helminth system, and I’ve come up with a very simple, very biased… [Continue Reading]

Ash is Good, but…

I’ve been playing both a lot of Index and a lot of Steel Path lately. When I play the same things over and over, I tend to not want to constantly change my Warframe a lot. I also don’t often use specific Warframes for specific tasks, I tend to prefer a generalist Warframe over a specific one. After all, Volt and Saryn are both nuke frames, but I prefer Volt due to his versatility. And while both Loki and Ivara are higher on my most-played list of Warframes, Ash has always been my invisibility frame of choice. Ash is a… [Continue Reading]

My Favourite Skyrim Dragon Textures

This article was originally going to be one of those articles. You know, the articles we have about nude mods. In fact, we have quite a few articles about Skyrim’s nude mods, but none actually recommending actual nude mods. There is plenty of choice when it comes to Skyrim nudity, but I’m not actually that well versed in it. I just got the most common female body mod, installed one of its many versions and called it a day. And I couldn’t even remember what it was called. I had to open up Mod Organizer to check it out. Once… [Continue Reading]

1000 Team Rocket Fights Later…

In July of 2019, Team GO Rocket appeared in Pokemon Go, attacking Pokestops and stealing items. While Team GO Rocket hasn’t had much effect on daily gameplay, it’s always been a thing. There’s even a multitude of medals to get, all related to Team GO Rocket. The problem is that, because they’re basically a side task, you can safely ignore Team Go Rocket and their myriad of grunts. Me though? I wanted to get the gold medal for defeating grunts. On September 15th 2020, I finally got that gold medal. 1000 grunts defeated. Seems like a long time I mean,… [Continue Reading]

Porygon Community Day – Eh

Porygon was the winner of the community day vote back in August, a vote that was done on Twitter. Considering the other options in the vote, it’s no wonder Porygon won. Charmander has featured in multiple events and already had a community day. Grimer already has two shiny forms and, worse, the Alolan one would be restricted to raids only. And Caterpie is, well, Caterpie. But even then, Porygon community day has been… meh. “Why did Porygon even win?” That’s a good question. Porygn isn’t an amazing Pokemon. But, compared to the other options, it kinda is. Porygon didn’t have… [Continue Reading]

The Lore-Based Reason Why Pyro is a Mediocre Character

I’ve talked about Pyro a lot in the past. While I don’t play much Team Fortress 2 at all any more, most of my friends do. And because of that, I hear a lot of… varying criticisms about the game. Mostly about Pyro. The Pyro has always been a pretty polarizing class, but also a somewhat spoiled class. While Pyro’s game balance may be all over the place, Pyro has by far the zaniest and most varied cosmetics and is probably one of the more popular characters. Despite being a short-ranged menace in a game that isn’t designed with close… [Continue Reading]

A Yellow Panic Attack

A while back, aabicus had a chat about what drove his imagination as a kid. It seems that both him and I had pretty wild imaginations as kids. Aabicus’s world though was pretty damn consistent. He had a fully fledged out lore for everyone and everything. In fact, some of his work ended up being used later on in life, as placeholders for characters in games. But while aabicus’s imagination was one of soldiers and secret missions, my childhood imagination was… uh… a bit more complicated. I’ve often attributed my crazy, volatile imagination to a lot of things. The most… [Continue Reading]

Albrecht Entrati

Hidden behind a door that can only be passed through by Tenno is a strange device. Maintained by Loid, this clock has… something to do with the Void. While it looks like a massive Ayatan sculpture, apparently it is some sort of clock. A massive mystery lies before us, involving both the Void and the mysterious Necramechs. But, more importantly, we have… memories lying around. Circling the edge of this great clock are runes. Some may remember them as the Requiem Mods we use to kill Liches. These are messages from Albrecht Entrati, the father of Mother and the head… [Continue Reading]

Warframe’s Simulacrum Could Be So Much Better

The Simulacrum is a room unlocked by buying a key off Cephalon Simaris. Located in the Tenno relays, you can go there and test out various things. For example, you can go and test out how well Corrosive does on an Ignis against various factions. In fact, you can test pretty much every weapon and ability you own, and the room is supplied with infinite ammo, energy and health. But the Simulacrum could be vastly improved in a lot of ways. You need to unlock everything about it. First off, you need to actually unlock the Simulacrum. To do that,… [Continue Reading]
