One-man D&D

Normally, I talk about video games, with most of my articles being about PC games and a significant chunk of them being about Team Fortress 2. Either way, my topics are largely about digital interactive entertainment. Today however I want to talk about something more physical. I recently recovered these two books from my bookshelf. As the tagline on the covers suggests, it’s an interactive book where you make your own choices in the adventure. Much like a choose-your-own-adventure book, except that these books also have a combat system. At the start of each book, you need to generate a… [Continue Reading]

Keeping Up One’s Writing Spirits

A lot of people ask me how I manage to constantly write. I’ve written over nine hundred articles for the Daily SPUF and have nearly 900 published stories and articles on my own site Phovos.net, yet somehow I am still constantly writing. I write at minimum 500 words every single day no matter what. Even when I spent all day at my local Comic Con last year, I still managed to write 500 words and publish that very article. I’ve been doing this for a while as well, since January 2016. 500 days minimum, every day since then. Yet here… [Continue Reading]

On Summer Slam 2018 and Wrestling Entertainment

Why the fuck did I stay up until 6:15am to watch a fricking Pay Per View wrestling show? Probably because my brother asked nicely, and he said this one would be fun. This one being Summer Slam 2018, with a bunch of pretty standard fights and a lot of belts and rivalries that needed sorting out. I didn’t actually pay for it, mind you. There’s a €10 a month subscription to the WWE network and it lets you watch pretty much any wrestling match from the WWE ever. Frankly, that’s a pretty good deal if you like wrestling as much… [Continue Reading]

Misfit Eidolon Hunt

“We’re going on an Eidolon hunt!” Frost exclaimed as he rummaged through his arsenal, looking for weapons to take with him. “We’re gonna murder some monsters!” “No, we’re going to capture one monster…” Volt sighed. “Maybe.” “Mate, I haven’t really done this before, just been carried by others!” Frost exclaimed. “I mean, I have a tier 2 Amp for my real self from being carried but I kinda… just did nothing while they killed the Teralyst. Are we going to kill all three?” Volt sighed again. “I just told you. We’re going to capture the Teralyst and see how we… [Continue Reading]

I Completely Forgot To Do A Deadpool 2 Movie Review

I’ve seen Deadpool 2 three times and I haven’t reviewed it. Isn’t that a bit crazy? Isn’t it crazy that I saw the movie two whole times? Well that last thing not so much. Because my dad (big comic book fan) wanted to see it with me, so did my brother and so did my cousin on one of the last showings. Totally a family film. No, really. It’s a family film. As in the main theme of the story is family and having people you can fall back on and relationship stuff and things like that. All that being… [Continue Reading]

Brother’s Ballard

It was April 2017 when I got my brother into Warframe. It had been one of my few birthday wishes, that my siblings play video games with me (because I’m a boring, indecisive person) for a few hours. Out of the two of them, I expected neither of them to continue playing at all. Warframe, as far as I was concerned, was much more niche. More like asking someone to play Dota 2 over playing Overwatch. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Well it turns out it totally was brother’s cup of tea. To the point that he has nearly… [Continue Reading]

TWO THOUSAND FUCKING ARTICLES! Oh and there’s prizes and stuff.

What’s that? 2000 articles? Is this real? Is it a fantasy? No, it’s definitely real. It’s 100% real. We’ve hit 2000 articles! But first off, let’s spend a moment thinking just how awesome we are, having published over 2000 articles on the Daily SPUF, one a day since our inception. And on top of that, some of these articles were written by people like you, dear reader! In fact, you could become a person who writes articles, as laid out on this page. So yeah, that’s awesome. And you’re awesome. We’re all awesome. You’re here for the contest though. Because… [Continue Reading]

On Macaroni and Cheese

I love a good old pasta dish, filled with pasta and cheese and some sort of sauce. My favourite pasta dish is my own homemade macaroni cheese, made with whatever pasta I have in my cupboard, a bechamel sauce with an egg yolk in it, mustard and plenty of cheese. The cheese in question varies depending on what day of the week it is and how many sandwiches my cheese-loving sister has eaten, but still, it’s always good. The recipe itself is simple. You boil your pasta for as long as it needs, adding salt and a splash of oil… [Continue Reading]

‘Zilla

Everyone I have spoken to apart from my mum seems to hate the 1998 Godzilla movie. Not one of the Japanese ones, but a Hollywood re-imagining of the King of the Monsters. Not so much a revamp but Hollywood doing their own thing. They all say that the 2014 movie was more faithful. But faithful does not mean better. I’ve watched the 2014 Godzilla movie a few times. But frankly I don’t enjoy it. It’s slow, plodding, tiresome and does not have NEARLY ENOUGH Godzilla in it. What pissed me off the most was the human characters I didn’t care… [Continue Reading]

Sorry, I fucked up.

If you’re seeing this, sorry. I totally fucked up. Turns out I somehow tabbed off the main typing area here on WordPress, pressed tab a bunch more times trying to work out what I was doing, hit Enter and accidentally published an article I was writing. That article happened to be the 2000 post celebratory article. I mean, out of ALL the articles I could have accidentally published, it had to be that one. So I’ve had to go through all our social media and delete the articles. But I can’t go through and delete the article emails that you’ve… [Continue Reading]
