The Sensible SPUFer

“Come on, Medic, it’ll be fun!” aabicus tried to convince the busy doctor. “Everyone’s going out trick or treating! Why won’t you?” Medic had been ignoring the gaggle of SPUFers behind him for about an hour now and they still hadn’t got the hint. He was still having flashbacks to last Halloween, when he let his brother borrow his lab coat and an old, broken medi-pack, and won a costume contest. Everyone called him a Ghostbuster. Meanwhile, no one had recognized Medic, wearing a grey suit and a paper mask, and he’d spent the evening protecting his sister from a… [Continue Reading]

5 Basic Tips Every Payday the Heist Player Should Know

Payday the Heist remains among my top 3 favorite games of all time, even if I almost never see players in my lobbies with double-digit playtimes. Overkill puts the game on sale constantly, which I’m grateful for because it ensures there are always a few lobbies open for me to jump into, but there are some very important little details that far too many players overlook. If you’re considering playing Payday the Heist, following these four steps will instantly graduate you from a beginning player to an intermediate player who’s far more of a benefit to this team. (Note: This guide… [Continue Reading]

‘Corrupted’ Minecraft World

Ages ago, I created a world and put too much TNT in it, which caused Minecraft to crash. I deleted it and made a new world, but parts of the TNT world ended up appearing in this newly generated flatland, causing more crashes. I didn’t delete this world, but I forgot about it. Now I have a better computer, I decided to visit this world and see what was going on. This is what happened. For your sake, I’ve removed the hour long. one frame a second slide show, caused by such a vast amount of TNT. Seriously, this world… [Continue Reading]

A Look at Junkrat’s Traps

I cannot stop playing Junkrat in Overwatch! He’s amazing, you can spam pills for days and almost everything I know about playing Team Fortress 2‘s Demoman ported over into Junkrat. His concussion mine is my favorite weapon in the game, basically being a single-clip Sticky Launcher that doesn’t self-damage, and his additional abilities such as the bear trap and the Riptire are new mechanics that perfectly complement his playstyle. Anyone who mained Demoman in TF2 definitely needs to try him out, though I hope you mained the grenade launcher like I did because it’s the cornerstone of the loadout, not… [Continue Reading]

Looking at Elder Scrolls Online

In this video, we’re playing Elder Scrolls Online, the MMO based in the second era of the Elder Scrolls universe, a long time before the events of Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. Molag Bal, the daedric prince of domination and incredibly nasty things, is tag-teaming with Mannimarco, a necromancer, to merge the real world, Tamriel, with his own realm, Cold Harbor. You are one of many people sacrificed in their attempts to do this, but through sheer luck, you get saved during a rebellion and find a way back to Tamriel… without your soul. The story follows you throughout a gigantic… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch comes out today!

Get hyped, Overwatch comes out in just a few hours! Imma buy it the second it comes out because I promised myself I’d never preorder again after the colossal disappointment that was Killing Floor 2, but if you’re hoping to score the Noir Widowmaker skin, you have a very brief window of time to obtain it right now. And this is a game to get in on the ground level, because I have a feeling this one’s gonna stick around for a long time. It took most of the good stuff from Team Fortress 2 and added things that make… [Continue Reading]

A Quick Minecraft Thing

Hi everyone, Phovos here. I’ve recently gotten back into playing Minecraft. I normally play in multiplayer servers, but I’ve been messing around with the Custom Map type, which allows you to create all sorts of craziness. This video is taken from a freshly created world and I thought you’d all like to see it. Of course, being a freshly made world, a lot of it is being generated on the fly. On my cheap laptop, it’s somewhat laggy, but a half-decent computer could probably run this world no problem. This world is pretty weird, even when we ignore the vast… [Continue Reading]

L4D2: The Campaigns Less Traveled

Recently my friend aDm soloed my favorite custom campaign in Left 4 Dead 2, Journey to Splash Mountain, on the hardest difficulty without bots. (In particular his amazing run of map 4 was quite cathartic, as we both learned in our personal solo runs that the Splash Mountain ride is undeniably the most difficult portion of the run. I also wish I’d noticed his trick to teleport gas cans to the generator when I’d done the finale.) In the Realism Expert Solo community, its rather rare to find people making use of the large and rich expansion of custom campaigns. Almost everybody sticks to the… [Continue Reading]

Phovos reviews Overwatch – Getting into our heads!

Hi, Phovos here! And guess what? We’re finally playing Overwatch! After failing to get into every single beta so far, we’ve been playing the Open Beta that lasts until May 9th. Overwatch is a ton of fun. The characters look cool, the maps are amazing, there’s free loot and it’s overall a blast to play. Very chaotic right now, because of the influx of players who don’t know what they’re doing, but still awesome. The maps are the best part of Overwatch, they’re really nice, good-looking maps, even with their long lines of sight and large amounts of choke points.… [Continue Reading]

First Experiences playing Payday: The Heist

One of aabicus’s favourite games is Payday: The Heist. He’s been pestering me for a while to get it and play it, and finally, one month later, in a spur of the moment thing, I find myself abruptly thrown into my first heist. While aabicus is streaming. Cue me asking lots of questions. But really, apart from asking what’s going on, Payday: The Heist is a lot, lot simpler than the sequel. All you do is choose weapons, a bag, a perk and some cosmetic stuff. Then you start the game and go on a big heist. Our first heist… [Continue Reading]
