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]

*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]

Playing On Easy Difficulty

I like playing on Easy Difficulty. There, I said it. I like easy mode. It’s fun. It’s relaxing. No, I’m not a coward. No, I shouldn’t be mocked for it. There’s nothing wrong with playing any difficulty if a game gives you difficulty options. But WHY do I like playing on easy mode? Well, I’m about to tell you. A lot of my gaming is to do with stress levels. I work and I study and at the end of the day, I’m generally pretty tired, especially these days now that I sleep a lot worse than I used to.… [Continue Reading]

On Studying for Exams

It’s unfair for me to be writing this article. For some insane reason, I am naturally good at taking exams. I’ve always done well when it comes to just writing stuff down, at the cost of not being very good at project-type assessments. But to make things fair, I’m going to give out some generic studying tips that I use to make sure I remember things. Write Shit Down You’re probably going to be writing things down in your exam, right? So you need to practice writing things down. Write all the things down. Actually, don’t. What you REALLY want… [Continue Reading]

Retina Burn – The Kindred Spirits of Robotron

You’re surrounded! Flanked on all sides by an aggressive, ever encroaching enemy force. No exits, no hiding places, nowhere else to run. Your death is expected, inevitable; At least put on a good show, will you? Robotron 2084 is a legendary game with unmistakable influence. It’s debut in 1982 was a watershed moment for game design, and paved the way for hundreds of derivatives. An unconventional control scheme made it stand out to arcade goers of the time, utilizing two joysticks during game play. The project was forged by Vid Kidz, A partnership between Eugene Jarvis and Larry Demar. Enjoying… [Continue Reading]

Thoughts About Cookies

Cookies are amazing. There’s so many ways you can make them. You can somewhat throw together a bunch of ingredients and it might actually turn into a cookie. The trick is to make small batches at a time, in case everything goes disastrously wrong. A quick note, this article is a bit different from normal SPUFood recipes. It’s a bit more talk-y. This is more of a guide than anything else. Ideally, you want the following, just as your basic cookie mixture. 1 cup of flour 1 cup of sugar 1 egg 1/2 cup butter If you want them to… [Continue Reading]

Retina Burn – Galaga

In an industry saturated by Shoot ‘Em Ups, why does Namco’s Galaga stand the test of time?   Galaga is a a game that needs no introduction. Hot on the heels of Pac-Man and Galaxian, Namco was an arcade juggernaut: Retching quarters from the pockets of innocent children around the globe. While Americans got their first taste of the legendary Shoot ‘Em Up in 1981, my first experience with the game wasn’t until the new millennium. Almost twenty years ago, a greasy youth begged his parents for pocket change at the local Pizza-Parlor. “They’ve got video games here, dad!” My… [Continue Reading]

Another Fucking Article About Net Neutrality – The People WANT a Free Internet, Dammit!

Even though the FCC decided to gut net neutrality and completely ignore what the people want, despite the many, many protests people have done, the US Senate is holding a vote to block the repeal of net neutrality and keep things as they are, a place where Internet Service Providers can’t slow down traffic as they please. This Senate repeal has been building up for ages as people have been trying to convince a handful of senators for a while, to get those 51 votes to pass. And some time in May, this vote is going to actually happen. We… [Continue Reading]

Avengers – Infinity War – Movie Review

Well, that was an awesome two and a half hours! Didn’t actually feel like two and a half hours at all. I suppose right from the start that’s a glowing review if you sit through a two and a half hour long movie and hardly even notice. Funnily enough, apart from one prick at the beginning of the movie (shouting at teenagers to be quiet and causing the rest of us, kids included, to miss the first 30 seconds of dialogue because he’s an entitled prick – literally all they said was “ooh the movie’s starting”), the theater was weirdly… [Continue Reading]

Destiny 2 – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Years after the TF2 blog stopped being constantly updated, I decided to personally consider “The Daily SPUF” as my new official TF2 blog. However, it wasn’t long until the lack of content in TF2 made The Daily SPUF writers to place other games in the spotlight. I personally wouldn’t have gotten myself addicted to Warframe otherwise. Almost half a year ago when I first started writing this article, I was extremely excited about Destiny 2 coming to PC, even though I didn’t have a clue on how exactly should I approach new players. My initial aim was to introduce and… [Continue Reading]
