Fishing on the beaches, just off Cetus

There’s not been much for me to do lately in Warframe. While I wait for the next fairly large update, while I wait for Chroma Prime to finish baking in my foundry and while I awkwardly level up a bunch of Dual Swords that I don’t like, I find myself drifting between tasks. Normally I’d be spending my time doing Fissure missions, opening relics and hoping for something nice, but in my bid to get the latest Prime items, I’ve worn myself out. The same can be said for my normal money runs on Seimeni and the Index, and Sorties… [Continue Reading]

OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead Beta – First Impressions

What’s that? OVERKILL, the people behind PAYDAY and PAYDAY 2, are doing a zombie game? Considering the fact that PAYDAY 1 is kinda like Left 4 Dead but with zombies that shoot back at you, the thought of an OVERKILL zombie game actually sounded incredibly awesome. Sure, I don’t play much PAYDAY but it’s zombies? How could they go wrong? Well, there’s lots of ways they could go wrong. Aabicus very kindly gave me access to the beta, and we played a little together, trying both missions and wandering around the camp area, where there were some things we might… [Continue Reading]

RED TEXT

The Strata Relay was just ahead. Excalibur’s landing craft, his plain Liset, landed in the hangar, and the young Tenno happily jumped out. There were very few other landing crafts here. Just that yellow Mantis landing craft which always seemed to be parked in that same spot. Didn’t seem to be any other Tenno nearby though. Didn’t matter. He was just there to trade a handful of Prime Parts for Ducats, then go back to farming for relics. Then again, this was Strata Relay. Few people ever came here. Even though it was a new relay. There wasn’t much to… [Continue Reading]

5 Quality of Life Features I’d Like to See in Pokemon GO

I do enjoy Pokemon GO, but sometimes the game feels like it’s wearing me down, that some basic actions are rather tedious and annoying, only fixed with a little bit of trial and error. So I’ve gone and made a little list of features and changes that I feel would make Pokemon GO a little bit more user friendly! The ability to view attacks or elements when picking Pokemon for battle I’ve got a good 10 Houndooms, all of which have got different attacks and different CPs. Most of them have dark attacks, but a couple of them have either… [Continue Reading]

Spiritomb and Its Mini Quest

Pokemon Go this year has a pretty nice Halloween event. Two new Generation 4 Pokemon (Drifloon and Stunky, plus their evolutions) and a huge influx of Ghost type Pokemon. Giratina has replaced Mewtwo in level 5 raids and November 3rd promises nothing but Gengar in raids for 3 hours, with Gengar having a shiny form. But there’s also some special research. A quest called A Spooky Message. The reward? A Spiritomb. As special research goes, A Spooky Message isn’t particularly difficult or anything, it’s just tedious. There are 3 parts to this special research, but stage 3 doesn’t actually do… [Continue Reading]

5 Things To Do Before Fortuna is Released

Fortuna, the massive expansion and somewhat open world area of Venus, is fast approaching, with developers Digital Extremes claiming that it’ll come out in November. On top of that, secret messages have been sent out, teasing Fortuna and the Orb Vallis further. But before we all jump into our landing crafts and head down to Venus, there’s probably a few things we should do first. Get an Archwing Launcher The Orb Vallis is a very big place, at least double the size of the Plains of Eidolon. We’re going to need a way to get around quickly and we probably… [Continue Reading]

Trading Lives for Loot

I’ve always felt somewhat sorry for Nekros. Not completely sorry, since he, like most Warframes, is a weapon of mass destruction controlled by a confused, ageless teenager, but at least a little bit sorry. Because most of the time, Nekros is used only as a loot amplifier. You see, Nekros’s third ability, Desecrate, extracts extra loot out of the bodies of fallen enemies. The more parts you chop an enemy up into, the higher the chance you’ll get more loot. Loot in this case refers to resources, ammo, mods, health and energy orbs, all of which are very useful. Desecrate… [Continue Reading]

Chroma Prime – STILL Not Dragon-y Enough!

Chroma still makes me sad. He’s not a dragon at all. Normal Chroma in particular looks like a knobbly lump of Sentient flesh with a very basic humanoid underneath, something closer to an Operative that you have to rescue, rather than the more human Warframes like Excalibur and Ash. Alright, you start off with this big, pretty bulky, pretty dragon-y form, but the second you press that 4 key, boom, you get a badly made floating rug and a mediocre Power Ranger. Both the Chroma Dynasty Deluxe Skin and the brand new Chroma Prime do little to make me think… [Continue Reading]

Paris Prime – The First and Last Step

The Paris Prime was one of the first weapons I managed to gather all the Prime parts for and build in the foundry. But as I played through Warframe, I found that bows were getting harder to use against more and more enemies. Sure, at the start of a mission, like an Exterminate or Rescue, when there’s only scattered enemies lying around, a Paris bow would silently take them out, but in a Defense mission or an Interception mission where enemies were all already alerted? Bows began to drag me down with their slow charge times. They might be able… [Continue Reading]

Arbitrary Arbitrations Of Arbitrary Awkwardness

The Chimera update for Warframe brought two main things with it: the Chimera Prologue quest and Arbitrations. Arbitrations are missions given by the Arbiters of Hexis, that weird Syndicate that no one knows about, and are aimed at high level players with little else to do. The idea of an Arbitration is simple. Arbitrations are endless missions, only available after you’ve completed every single node on the Star Chart. And by every node, I mean all 127 of them, from that forgotten Dark Sector mission on Earth to that annoying Archwing Rush mission on Phobos to the Mutalist Alad V… [Continue Reading]
