Avengers Endgame – A Review Of Sorts

Avengers Endgame was awesome! Thanos got the Infinity Stones and half the universe died- wait, wrong movie. That was Infinity War. Still, Avengers Endgame was a bloody awesome film with good pacing, awesome music as always and a mind-boggling plot. Really, I should review it, since that’s what everyone else is doing. First off though, there will be spoilers. They’ll be at the end of the article with a massive spoiler warning in advance. You have been warned. Although I will warn you now, there’s no end-credits scene. Not that this movie really needs it. The credits themselves though are… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave is Kinda Naff, Really

We’re on week 9 of Nightwave. It feels like Nightwave has been around forever. Slowly plodding along, being in the background, compelling you to do random tasks for some strange reason. And frankly, after so long, my opinions on Nightwave have dropped lower and lower and lower. To the point that I miss random alerts. Random alerts weren’t always great. If you wanted Vauban for example, all you could do was wait and hope that you get an alert. There was no way around it, aside from buying things in the market. But not everything could be bought from the… [Continue Reading]

What Are Tenno Anyway?

To someone who is playing Warframe, the phrase “What are Tenno?” is a pretty easy question to answer on the surface. A Tenno is the player’s character. It’s who we are playing as from the moment we wake up in the hands of Captain Vor to the moment we free ourselves on the Moon to the moment that we watch the Lotus return home. More specifically, the Tenno is the person in the back of your ship who telepathically controls a Warframe during missions and occasionally leaps out of said Warframe to do things on their own. But deeper down,… [Continue Reading]

Thoughts on Cyprus Comic Con 2019

Now that I’m finally at home, I can actually sit down and write something properly, rather than trying to update blog posts in a boiling hot chicken costume. And I can actually write down some actual thoughts without having to write on my phone. Okay, first things first, April probably wasn’t a great choice because of, uh, April showers. Cyprus’s weather is always weird in April, but I guess the organizers wanted to catch the pre-Orthodox Easter rush, as well as people visiting over UK Easter? Maybe? I don’t know. But really, it didn’t make that much difference because it… [Continue Reading]

Ephemera – Warframe’s Unusual Effects

It was only a matter of time until Unusual Effects started fleeing Team Fortress 2 and infecting other games. In fact, Unusual Effects have been doing so for years. First these sparkly effects began infecting other nearby Valve games and before long everyone was getting into particle effects. But then everyone switched over to skins on guns and the world hasn’t been the same since. Sure, there were Unusual Guns, but they never really had the same effect that Unusual Hats did. Actually, right off the bat, I’ve kinda made a mistake here. Ephemera aren’t really Unusual Effects at all.… [Continue Reading]

A Dumb Gang Beasts Chicken Goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019 – Day 2

It’s 9am on a Sunday and I am standing in the middle of a rather empty outdoor food court. It’s really, really quiet here. Like, really quiet. The event is supposed to be opening for early access VIP folks now but it’s quuiiiiieeeettt. Anyway, I’m here for day two of Cyprus Comic Con 2019, and just like yesterday, I’ll be updating as we go along. Hopefully every hour, but we’ll see how it goes. 9:26 – Tried Apex Legends. Found it boring as fuck. Got disconnected (literally, connection died) from my squad, but all I did was wander around in… [Continue Reading]

Medic goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019

It is just past 7 in the morning. I am in a holiday apartment in Nicosia. I am wearing a heavy costume with a mask. I look cute as fuck. And I am going to publish this unfinished. Why? Because I’m getting ready to go to Cyprus Comic Con 2019. And that means I’ll be updating this article as I go along. There wasn’t a Cyprus Comic Con in 2018 because August is too, too fucking hot. April is way cooler but there is always a risk of rain. It actually rained yesterday, funnily enough. We had to go to… [Continue Reading]

The Weirdness of Vox Solaris

A lot of things in Fortuna and the Orb Vallis are very similar to things in Cetus and the Plains of Eidolon. Really, the biggest differences are that Fortuna has its own skateboarding syndicate and that there isn’t a boss that wanders around – you have to go into a specific instance to fight the Orb Vallis bosses. When it comes to Syndicates, Vox Solaris is pretty damn similar to the Quills, but it feels out of place. Quill Onkko’s little base is very hidden away, somewhat off the beaten track. It’s not even accessible until you’ve finished the War… [Continue Reading]

Getting Closer to Legendary Monsters

I’ve noticed a change in Pokemon Go recently. A change when it comes to Legendary Pokemon. There’s something off about them, and not the fact that many of the recent Legendaries can be taken down with just four accounts. No, the change I’ve noticed comes to how… close they are. A while back, I wrote a very angry, very scathing article about Latias, the little red Pokemon that’s more of an airplane than it is a dragon. My biggest criticism of it was that the bastard was way too small a target, moved around too much, attacked too much and,… [Continue Reading]

In Defense of the Bohrok-Kal, Over 15 Years Later

Do you want to feel old? No? Well tough, here’s a fact for you: the original Toa are all 18 years old now. Meaning that they can legally drink, buy cigarettes, vote and consent to sex or marriage in a large number of countries on planet Earth. I don’t know what the age of consent is on the island of Mata Nui, Metru Nui or Spherus Magna in general though, so I’d ask before you offer Gali a drink. For me, that’s not too bad, because I got into Bionicle in 2003, with the release of the Bohrok-Kal. That makes… [Continue Reading]
