Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee free on GOG.com

There’s a free game currently available in GOG’s big sale. There have been a few games for free lately and you should probably go have a look. But today’s free game, available until the end of the 21st, is an odd one. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is the free game, and it brings back weird memories. It’s also available on Steam and as a Steam key on Humble Bundle but not DRM free. The story involves an unlikely and rather hideous being who overhears his boss talking about grinding up the Mudoken, his entire species and turning them into the next… [Continue Reading]

The Day We Missed

Today is the 19th of September 2017. On the 19th of September 2013, we missed a day. aabicus dutifully explained why in his article on the 20th, informing the few readers that we had that the Daily SPUF was moving to blog.spuf.info, the Daily SPUF website that exploded then miraculously came back to life. The site we had before we ended up here on SPUF.org. I don’t think aabicus thought we would still be going in 2017. I should point out that this is four years later, and we’re still pumping out articles and we’re slowly making our way to… [Continue Reading]

IT – Not Very Scary

It’s a bad sign when there are people laughing in a horror movie in a cinema. But that’s what happened when I went and saw IT on the big screen. There were people laughing. And no, it wasn’t because of botched subtitles. Since every movie I see has Greek subtitles – even though the translation of the title alone had people snickering. Seriously, they had translated the movie IT to “Το Αυτό” meaning The It. The bloke sitting a few seats over from me, I genuinely heard him say “Why did they called the movie that?” In Greek of course.… [Continue Reading]

Cyprus Comic Con 2017 – Thoughts

So, Cyprus Comic Con day one has passed and now we’re on day two. I’m writing this at 9am after a nice little breakfast at a hotel fifteen minutes away. Brother slept like a log, but me and sister couldn’t really sleep. Dunno why. Breakfast at the hotel was basic. Ham, cheese, eggs, bread, cereal. Mini buffet thing. The hotel is super quiet. It actually mostly has older people in it. I assume most non-locals booked places closer or just went home. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the fact that sister REALLY wanted to go to the after party, we… [Continue Reading]

Volt, Mercy and Handsome Jack go to Cyprus Comic Con 2017

It’s Comic Con time! Yep, old Medic here is going out into the real world for a change, getting some sun on her face and potentially even socializing with other people. How silly is that? Well, not very because I did this last year, while dressed up as the Pyro. Oh and I did it back in 2015 as well, where I dressed up as a female version of Malzahar from League of Legends. Unlike most articles, I’ll be updating this one as I go along, so check back every so often and perhaps maybe I’ll have some cool news,… [Continue Reading]

The New QOTSA Album – Villains

When it comes to reviewing things, I’m always late to the punch. But with a lot of things, you need some time to listen and let things settle down a bit. Maybe you just need to absorb what you just watched. Maybe you need to watch, read or listen again. That’s definitely the case with the new Queens of the Stone Age album, Villains. The first song I heard was their two singles, The Way You Used To Do and The Evil Has Landed. I didn’t really listen to them too much in detail because I wanted to hear the… [Continue Reading]

On Running Too Quickly

So the other day, I was testing stupid builds on Volt and seeing how fast I could do low level capture missions. The best I managed was 65 seconds, achieved with a rather basic Speed build, but also requiring a lot of luck. The map I got turned out to be very small so I could get through it super fast. Unfortunately, Warframe is not a great game to speed run because the majority of maps are randomly generated. What I got for the 65 second Capture Mission was not normal, normally you’re looking at about 150-200m to reach the… [Continue Reading]

How to Git Gud at Lucioball

The Summer Games are here, and with them Blizzard has brought back the best seasonal game mode Overwatch has ever had: Lucioball! A hybrid of Rocket League and Jet Set Radio, Lucioball takes my favorite character in Overwatch and builds an entire sport around him, and I cannot possibly be having more fun. I managed to place into high Diamond in the new competitive Copa Lucioball, and here are some tips for bringing your game to the next level: 1. Set yourself up for the cross. This is the single most important tip in this guide. When the ball is on… [Continue Reading]

A Grineer’s Lunch

Volt hid in the shadows and waited patiently. He wasn’t a stealthy sort of Warframe, but there he was, doing a stealth mission, because why not? It wasn’t like Volt had anything better to do right now, and he wanted to test out his new silent blast Sonicor, so again, why not? He had been making good progress so far. Lots of rather scattered enemies meant that Volt could take each one out at his own pace. This mission was supposed to have been an exterminate mission, but mass slaughter didn’t need to be done swiftly. Sometimes Volt wanted to… [Continue Reading]

A Morgue of Files

Being someone who uses a lot of images in their line of work, I need a source of stock images, preferably free ones, that I can use without being sued. But I also need images that are actually genuinely good and interesting and preferably not shit. All the images used in this article are pictures downloaded from one particular stock photo website – Morguefile. Over the years, I’ve used loads of sites. Originally, I would just use Google Images, using the option that filters images via usage rights. It’s SUPPOSED to filter out images that have copyrights and keep in… [Continue Reading]
