The Sacrifice – Um… That was… Uh…

So I played the Sacrifice. It wasn’t very long. I think I finished it in about 45 minutes? Not long at all. At the end of it I was all rather… uh… I don’t know. I wasn’t sure how to feel. I think deflated but not surprised is the best description. I expected more. I really did. Before we start, don’t worry, this is mostly spoiler free. I won’t go into details about what happened or anything like that. Normally me and fellow clan members can’t agree on much. But we all seemed to agree on the same thing –… [Continue Reading]

What Makes A Good Achievement?

According to Steam, the only game I have 100% completion on is Skyrim, the normal version. The only two achievements I actively hunted were the maxing out of the Werewolf and Vampire skill trees, because I never liked the Vampire and Vampire Lord forms and the Werewolf form only lasted as long as you kept on killing people. And only a handful of other achievements made me directly do various actions, like making sure I got every single Daedric artifact on one character. But that’s only because there are certain Daedric items *cough* the Skeleton Key *cough* that don’t count… [Continue Reading]

A Brain Full of Game Stuff

Some people have memories like sponges, they absorb everything. Some people have memories like buckets with holes in the bottom, so they forget everything. My memory is like a DIY water filter, filtering whatever passes through it, the water coming out the bottom pure and only the nasty, useless shit remaining. Simply put, I remember useless stuff but not important stuff. My brain is FULL of video game shit but I’m bad at remembering useful stuff. But video game stuff varies a lot. At my highest point, when SPUF was going full steam and I was a super awesome Medic… [Continue Reading]

The Sacrifice is Here..

“I HAVE MADE SACRIFICES, TENNO!” Vay Hek shouts at you whenever you visit Oro on Earth, in the Vay Hek Assassination mission. “ARE YOU READY FOR A SACRIFICE?” That line has basically echoed through the Warframe community ever since the Sacrifice was teased last Tennocon. The next Tennocon starts in July, they promised the Sacrifice would be out by then and now it’s out. Update 23 is here, downloading as I speak. A whole 2GB worth of stuff. Somewhat close in size to the Plains of Eidolon, even though it’s apparently just a quest and a bunch of cosmetics and… [Continue Reading]

Driver San Francisco is FUCKING INSANE

Driver San Francisco is a fucking insane game. Fucking insane. Beyond words. I’ll start with the fact that I played the original Driver game. And the original Driver game was fucking good. I had it on the Playstation back when I was 8 and mum had to do the first level, because the first level was the hardest one in the game – you had to complete a series of tests in a small car park – three fuck ups and you had to start from the very beginning. It was by far the hardest mission in the game because… [Continue Reading]

The Learning Process to Killing a Teralyst Solo

On Friday 18th May 2018 at around 11pm, I managed to kill a Teralyst on my own with no squad mates. I’d attempted this a few times, only to be met with failure, or find I don’t have the right equipment. A much more experienced player might find it amusing how overly proud I was with my single Eidolon kill and might find it disheartening that I didn’t even attempt to try killing the other two Eidolons, but this is a boss fight made for four people, involving end-game gear and things like that – you basically have to do… [Continue Reading]

*Insert E3-Related Things Here*

I’m supposed to care about E3. It’s pretty much the biggest gaming thing in a year. This is a gaming blog, I’m supposed to cover things like that. There’s a ton of cool and maybe not so cool stuff being shown. Heck, apparently, later on today (which would be Monday 11th of June, but you know what time zones are like), there’s going to be some Warframe-related stuff. On top of that, there was already a reveal for Anthem (which looks very Destiny-y and Warframe-y) and the vaguest mention of an actual Elder Scrolls 6 game, despite the fact all… [Continue Reading]

Wanted: Endo and Energy for New Tenno

The early parts of Warframe are weird. Everything is either too hard or weirdly easy, and difficulty jumps are all over the place. One minute you’re fine, slowly going around shooting the helmets off Corpus grunts, capturing targets who like to teleport and very, very slowly doing Spy vaults, the next you’re being overrun by hordes of Grineer and watching helplessly as they kill your Taxon and destroy that Cryopod you had to protect. Most of the time though, you’ll be fine, apart from the fact that everything is slowly getting harder and you’re not quite sure why. Okay, the… [Continue Reading]

The All-Rounders Volt Build, by an Everyday Volt Main

Volt makes up 50% of my total playtime in Warframe. I know him mostly inside out, from his weird two pairs of eyes to his little butt-cape. I regularly take Volt into lots of things and somehow manage to stay alive even when everyone else around me is dying. I honestly think it’s time to go through my build and how I manage to take him everywhere, from Kuva Fortress Assault to Sortie Defense, and not be totally useless. In hindsight, this might be because I am simply so used to playing Volt that I know his strengths and weaknesses.… [Continue Reading]

On Building and IKEAframe

IKEAframe is the joke name given to creating things inside your ship or in clan dojos in Warframe. For a game built around creepy bio-mechanical space ninjas roaming the solar system killing armies of evil clones and profit-driven madmen, there’s actually a lot of effort that has been put into making your own custom spaces. It wasn’t until this year though that we got better decorating tools. It used to be that you could only place things while in your Warframe, being unable to move the camera any way your Warframe couldn’t. This meant that building things on top of… [Continue Reading]
