The Co-op scary-mutant-monster-zombie shooting game Killing Floor is currently free on Humble Bundle Store for a limited time – until June 24th!

It requires having a Humble Bundle website account to access, and the game key is sent to your email address and added to your account.

INSTANT CAKE MIX IS CHEATING

I’m in a bad mood. I’ve been looking up easy home-made cake recipes. I have been cheated. Half the recipes I have found have been instant cake mix plus the standard ingredients you need to make said instant cake mix. This is not baking. This is cheating. Now, I’m not saying that instant cake mix is evil and should be banned. Instant cake mix is a lazy, silly thing to have, considering that a cake 99% of the time is flour, sugar, eggs and a fat of some sort. Plus some baking powder. So spending money on a ready-made mixture… [Continue Reading]

Outland Free on Steam Until June 8th!

Thanks to MysticTheMeemM for finding this one! Outland is a third-person platformer where the player “uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos”, to quote the Steam page. I haven’t played it, I’m actually at work and this article is more of a thought experiment to see if I can successfully write and publish an article entirely from my smart phone during my lunch break. Hope you get your money’s worth! Related posts: Saints Row 2 is Free For One Day!

Last Goodbyes

Today, Monday the 5th of June 2017, is the day SPUF dies. No one will ever be able to post ever again. Today’s article contains the goodbye notes from various SPUFers throughout the ages, serving as a goodbye to the forum some of us have spent years posting on. For some SPUFers, it was just a place to hang out, for others, it was a source of inspiration, for others still, it was full of advice and nice, community things. Either way, SPUF was a great place and it’s a shame to see it go. “SPUF had a good run… [Continue Reading]

The Joys of CSS

No, I’m not talking about Counter-Strike: Source. I’m talking about Cascading Style Sheets. Cascading Style Sheets, better known as CSS, is a language used to make other languages look prettier. More specifically, it tells your web browser what a web page should look like. Even more specifically, CSS tells specific elements in your HTML what they should look like. Using CSS, you can make a background any colour you want, you can make text bigger and smaller, you can make links change colour when you hover and click on them, you can create menus, make pages mobile-friendly,  you can make… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch Goes to the Moon

Two days ago, everybody got really excited when the Blizzard Twitter account posted a link to this not-so-cryptic page shedding some lore on the Horizon moon base that Winston grew up in. Well, Blizzard didn’t make us wait long before revealing that the clues point to a new map set on this abandoned moon base! I’m super excited to play this. A few people are grumbling about it being a 2CP map (Volskaya and Hanamura being two of the most stalemate-inducing maps in the game), but Jeff took care to mention in his developer update that that focused on making the… [Continue Reading]

A Theory on Samurai Jack

Been a while since we had a SPUF of Legend video that came with a Daily SPUF article! We were supposed to make these transcripts for every episode, or write a tie-in article that incorporates the latest episode, but we kinda never do so we’re looking for any suggestions on better ways to integrate The SPUF of Legend with the blog proper. Got any suggestions? Let us know in the comments! This week we’re doing something a little different because my recording software has been a finnicky little twit for about two weeks now, and I can’t figure out why so… [Continue Reading]

SPUFpowered – A SPUF Away From SPUF

With SPUF’s death, the community has been exploring its options for continuing on some other site. Posters from the Off Topic SPUF section are meeting up on their Steam Group, others are discussing the situation on SCUD and reddit, and we from TF2 have mostly been congregating on r/SPUF, though it’s really intended as more of a temporary “what do we do now” hub while we find a better place. A better place to keep our community going is SPUFpowered, a forum filled with old SPUF regulars who have existed in their shadowy little corner of the internet for years now.… [Continue Reading]

SPUF is Kill

Maybe it’s a false alarm, maybe somebody somewhere hit the wrong button, maybe it’s a late April Fools’ joke. But right now, our beloved Steam User Forums redirects to SCUD. Update: According to Ianskate, SPUF moderator, it’s official, SPUF is gone. This happened extremely recently (I was surfing SPUF a few minutes before it stopped letting me) and it’s something people have kinda maybe vaguely suspected might happen at some point, but not really because Valve has loads of money and there were at least a few thriving communities, such as the TF2, Dota 2, CSGO and Off-Topic forums. SCUD even… [Continue Reading]

Alan Wake Is Getting Removed From Steam

Alan Wake is one of my favorite games of all time, as evidenced by the number of articles that reference it despite me never explicitly dedicating one to it or its sequel Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.  The story-driven narrative is exciting and suspenseful, with a cast of memorable characters and a plot that feels like living through a Stephen King novel, interspersed with Twilight Zone-style twists and framed around a flashlight-based combat system that never lets you fully feel in control of the situation. Well, if you’re hoping to buy Alan Wake for yourself, don’t dally because at the end of this weekend… [Continue Reading]
