The Easiest Pokemon to Level Up Past Level 40

Getting a Pokemon to level 40 is kinda tricky. On the last few stages, you’re looking at thousands of stardust and up to 15 candy for half a level. Unless you have a Lucky or Purified Pokemon, the stardust costs become ridiculous. Powering up Pokemon to level 50 however takes that long grind and makes it even harder. For one single power up, from level 40 to level 40.5, you require 10k stardust and 10 Candy XL. One Candy XL is equal to 100 normal candy. the only guaranteed way to get XL Candy is to hatch a Pokemon, which… [Continue Reading]

The Binding of Isaac’s Repentance Ending is… Curious…

With the arrival of the Repentance DLC, the Binding of Isaac is now basically a finished game. Sure, the developers said that about Afterbirth+. But the fan-made Antibirth mod was such a hit that the developers had to tie it all together for one final DLC. However, a big part of Repentance is that it gives us a final ending for the Binding of Isaac. Related posts: Lore in the Binding of Isaac

The Perks of being a True Master

It took me a long, long time to reach True Master in Warframe. I played through a myriad of events, sat through a maze of reworks and probably spent a little too long in Sanctuary Onslaught. And all the common farming missions. Gian Point is quite a standout, especially when it comes to Intrinsics. I played quite slowly though, only gunning for the end once I reached MR28 and saw that an end was in sight. That mad dash though was just as intense as someone attempting to speed-run the game. Reaching MR30 and becoming a True Master allowed me… [Continue Reading]

Three Ways to Travel the Steel Path

The Steel Path is a conundrum. It was originally just an alternate area for players to test their high level builds, that gave a handful of rewards too. The idea is really simple: enemy levels are increased by 100, and everything has extra shields and armour. The rewards were never amazing, just the odd Steel Essence, as well as a higher chance of drops overall. Aside from those though, there was no real reason to play Steel Path, aside from the initial completion affinity. But then people realized you could farm so much Kuva from the Steel Path. So the… [Continue Reading]

Thoughts on the Call of the Tempestarii Quest

The Call of the Tempestarii is a relatively short quest, tied to a new Warframe. It’s a very simple quest with nothing really challenging in it. This is also the name of Update 30, which is bringing along some other bits and pieces. Things like Void Storms, and hints at Corpus Liches. However, those need some… time to be digested, and for the bugs to be ironed out. So, today, I’m just gonna talk about the quest. I would have made a walk-through, but frankly, the quest is really simple. I’ve played it twice and, sadly, in both my recordings,… [Continue Reading]

Smug Snake Community Day

It’s been ages since we had a Community Day for a starter. The last one was for Piplup in January 2020. So, really, a Community Day for Snivy, the first of the Sinnoh starters, was long overdue. The little smug snake finally got what it deserved, with a nice, sunny community day. A pretty standard Community Day. This community day wasn’t much different from the Roselia or Machop Community Days. There’s 30 free ultra balls in the shop, and there’s one Pokemon spawning everywhere. Luckily for me, it was sunny pretty much all day, meaning all the Snivies spawning everywhere… [Continue Reading]

The 3000th Article

Wow. This is the 3000th article. That’s a pretty big number. Sure, in the grand scheme of things, 3000 isn’t that many. For a video game blog, written in our spare time? Yeah, that feels like a massive number. Congratulations to us, for reaching our 3000th article. Things have been tough though. 2020 alone was a massive shit show, and there were definitely a few times here and there where I didn’t think I’d get an article scheduled on time. We still managed it though. No matter what happened over all these years (and a lot of things have happened),… [Continue Reading]

My Problem With Mastery Locks on Weapons

The other day, I mentioned a low MR Volt, who had just begun his adventure. As we played with him, he asked a lot of questions. His biggest one was “where can I find a good AOE weapon for my MR?” That’s a genuinely great question, because Warframe has a LOT of enemies and you need a lot of them killed. Back then, at MR4, the only weapon we could really recommend was the Hek, since most explosive weapons unlock at MR5 or higher. Eventually, we gave the guy some suggestions, as well as a lot of probably unnecessary help.… [Continue Reading]

Is A Proto Skin A Deluxe Skin?

In 2017, Volt got a deluxe skin called Proto Volt. Honestly, I wasn’t that big a fan of it. While most deluxe skins tend to go for a completely different look at a Warframe, the Proto Volt skin is just… Volt. Volt but unfinished. Back then, I wrote an article about it, saying how it was mostly alright. At the end of the article however, I asked whether Proto Skins counted as deluxe skins or not. There were three Proto Skins. Well, four if you include the Glaive skin. When it comes to Warframes though, we had the two Dark… [Continue Reading]

A Ramble on Baking Cakes

I love baking cakes. Something about baking cakes kinda reminds me of, well, science. Not actual, proper science. While yes, there is chemistry involved in baking a cake, it’s not sciency. Sure, I’m taking things and mixing them together, but I’m not really aware of all the chemical reactions going on. Aside from maybe the baking powder reacting and forming pockets of air as it does so. No, baking reminds me of the sort of silly science you’d do as a kid. Just mixing stuff together to see what works. Basically doing my own little experiments. Now, when it comes… [Continue Reading]
