Sending and Receiving Gifts is Such A Pain

I’m going to be blunt here. I’ve always been bad at receiving gifts. While I can make and send pretty nice presents, my ability to receive a gift is kinda crap. And, for some reason, this trait has followed me into Pokemon GO. A place where gifts are a pretty large part of the game. But, for some reason, even for normal people, receiving gifts in Pokemon GO is a massive pain. And so is sending gifts. So. Much. Tapping. Sending and receiving gifts takes ages. Just like everything else in Pokemon GO, you need to tap through various animations.… [Continue Reading]

7 Things I Miss From Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 is definitely one of my favorite games of all time, at least in the top 3. It’s the perfect mix of mobility, environmental destruction, and cheesy B-grade voice-acting. It makes you feel like you’re starring in a very explosive action movie. I have hundreds of hours in the single-player and multiplayer modes combined. I keep finding myself coming back despite having less and less available to do in my save file. So finally, during the last Steam Winter sale, I finally bought the complete Just Cause 3 collection for only $4 so I could see where the… [Continue Reading]

I Really, Really Want a Break From Kanto Pokemon

I was kinda hoping that, with the Kanto Celebration ending, we’d get a bit of a break from Kanto Pokemon. There’s 151 of them, making it one of the bigger regions with the most Pokemon. Out of the Pokedexes in Pokemon GO, only Unova beats out Kanto, with 156 Pokemon. That being said, there’s at least 300 Pokemon in other regions, and none of them get a look in. It’s… getting silly. Despite this event ending, we’re still getting Kanto Pokemon. Having a look at the upcoming March events, there’s STILL a heavy lean on Kanto Pokemon. Sure, we are… [Continue Reading]

How Cheap is an Oxium Osprey to Make?

The Oxium Osprey is a curious little robot. Most Corpus robotics will simply shoot at invading Tenno. However, the Oxium Osprey has a different choice of combat. While it does have a small laser turret, Oxium Ospreys stop using them as soon as they take damage to their shields. Once damaged, an Oxium Osprey will charge at you and then explode, killing itself in the process. If you kill the Oxium Osprey before it explodes, you can take its Oxium for yourself. If it self-destructs manually, the Oxium disappears. What is Oxium though? Oxium is a lighter-than-air alloy. It’s a… [Continue Reading]

In Defense of Octavia Prime’s ‘Plain’ Look

We’re reaching the point where the fancier frames are getting Primed now. Octavia is one of those fancy frames. She’s brightly coloured, dances around and has a cool gimmick. Compared to earlier frames, Octavia has a lot going for her. However, it seems that a lot of people think her Prime isn’t very fancy. In fact, I’ve seen quite a few people complain that Octavia Prime is very plain, unlike previous Primes. While Octavia Prime certainly doesn’t need some random yellow Volt to defend her, I still kinda want to talk about this. Octavia Prime is fancy enough. I mean,… [Continue Reading]

The Legendary Birds Returned Yet Again

To finish off the Kanto Celebration, we got a very nice little raid event. On the last day of February, the Legendary Birds returned for 3 hours in 5 star raids. It’s a pretty nice send off for what felt like an endless Kanto event. Back with special moves! Well, I say special moves, I mean the special moves they’ve had for ages. Hurricane for Articuno, Thunder Shock for Zapdos and Sky Attack for Moltres. Zapdos and Moltres’s moves are generally pretty good, but Hurricane is… just alright for Articuno. In fact, these are the special moves these Pokemon received… [Continue Reading]

A Chat About Some Fancy Wings

Star Days is over. With its disappearance, you’ll no longer be able to buy stuff from Ticker’s special shop. While most of it is just cosmetics, we’ll also be unable to get the Snipetron blueprint for a while. But the biggest thing that’s disappearing is the Eros Wings Ephemera. You know, the wings that tons of people are currently wearing. These wings however are… a little bit controversial. For a large variety of reasons. And I think it’s worth having a closer look at these fancy wings. The wings aren’t actually bad, just out of place. I don’t want to… [Continue Reading]

On Passing The Help Along

A lot of my early hours in Warframe were spent in a daze. I was dragged from one node to the next, not understanding what I was doing. Despite having a high MR player helping me, I struggled greatly. In fact, I actually rage-quit a few times, especially after being dragged into a Sortie at a fresh MR4. Still using the MK1 Braton. I didn’t actually hit my Warframe stride until quite a bit later on. But along the way, I received a little help from complete strangers. All sorts of help. And not just help with missions! Funnily enough,… [Continue Reading]

The “It’s Not Very Space-Ninja-y” Argument That Makes No Sense

For years and years, I’ve seen the same argument pop up in Warframe. It doesn’t matter what the overall discussion is, but there’s a high chance this argument will pop up. Whether people are complaining about the art style or a new Warframe or a shiny new weapon or Ephemera, someone will use this argument. No matter what, you can’t escape. It’s always the same one. “This doesn’t fit inside our space ninja game”. The current complaints are about a pair of wings. But the same has been said about everything from the current teased Revenant Deluxe skin, all the… [Continue Reading]

My Thoughts on Community Days with PvP-Orientated Moves

Over the last year or so, pretty much every Community Day has been the same. It’s a not very new shiny, that gets a move designed for PvP. The last Pokemon that got a move useful for PvP was Rhydon with Rock Wrecker, back in February 2020. Before then, we had a basic pattern of “cool Pokemon” then “Starter Pokemon”. But 2020 changed all that by bringing back repeat candidates and having… unusual moves. Of course, this hasn’t made everyone happy. And, of course, I’m going to give my opinions on the matter. To be fair, there’s only so much… [Continue Reading]
