Avengers Endgame – A Review Of Sorts

Avengers Endgame was awesome! Thanos got the Infinity Stones and half the universe died- wait, wrong movie. That was Infinity War. Still, Avengers Endgame was a bloody awesome film with good pacing, awesome music as always and a mind-boggling plot. Really, I should review it, since that’s what everyone else is doing. First off though, there will be spoilers. They’ll be at the end of the article with a massive spoiler warning in advance. You have been warned. Although I will warn you now, there’s no end-credits scene. Not that this movie really needs it. The credits themselves though are… [Continue Reading]

Thoughts on Cyprus Comic Con 2019

Now that I’m finally at home, I can actually sit down and write something properly, rather than trying to update blog posts in a boiling hot chicken costume. And I can actually write down some actual thoughts without having to write on my phone. Okay, first things first, April probably wasn’t a great choice because of, uh, April showers. Cyprus’s weather is always weird in April, but I guess the organizers wanted to catch the pre-Orthodox Easter rush, as well as people visiting over UK Easter? Maybe? I don’t know. But really, it didn’t make that much difference because it… [Continue Reading]

A Dumb Gang Beasts Chicken Goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019 – Day 2

It’s 9am on a Sunday and I am standing in the middle of a rather empty outdoor food court. It’s really, really quiet here. Like, really quiet. The event is supposed to be opening for early access VIP folks now but it’s quuiiiiieeeettt. Anyway, I’m here for day two of Cyprus Comic Con 2019, and just like yesterday, I’ll be updating as we go along. Hopefully every hour, but we’ll see how it goes. 9:26 – Tried Apex Legends. Found it boring as fuck. Got disconnected (literally, connection died) from my squad, but all I did was wander around in… [Continue Reading]

Medic goes to Cyprus Comic Con 2019

It is just past 7 in the morning. I am in a holiday apartment in Nicosia. I am wearing a heavy costume with a mask. I look cute as fuck. And I am going to publish this unfinished. Why? Because I’m getting ready to go to Cyprus Comic Con 2019. And that means I’ll be updating this article as I go along. There wasn’t a Cyprus Comic Con in 2018 because August is too, too fucking hot. April is way cooler but there is always a risk of rain. It actually rained yesterday, funnily enough. We had to go to… [Continue Reading]

The Terrifying World of Pokemon Go

When you think about it, Pokemon Go is actually a somewhat terrifying game. Well, it’s terrifying when you think about things too hard, which is what I’ve been doing lately. The premise of Pokemon Go is simple – Pokemon are escaping the Pokemon universe and appearing in our universe. First it was affecting Kanto only, but it’s been spreading, and now Pokemon from the Hoenn, Johto and Sinnoh regions are appearing as well. They’re basically invading our universe. In the mean time, us mere humans have been fighting back in the only way we know how – by capturing and… [Continue Reading]

Ember and the Helpful Stranger

The little Ember sent her message again, knowing that it would be ignored. Her message entered the Recruitment Channel and swiftly disappeared, pushed aside by a stream of other messages all saying things she didn’t understand. “LF AXI L3” “H 4X3 NEED HARROW” “LF PROFITTAKER” “H ESO 3/4” None of it made any sense to the little Ember. She just wanted some help, but the Cephalon from the Global Channel had sent her here. Suddenly, something beeped. A communication. A private one. Another Tenno had messaged Ember directly. “Heya, do you still need help?” Ember beamed as she hastily replied.… [Continue Reading]

Castform Community Day

Castforms! Castforms everywhere! Normal, stumpy little Castforms! Little teardrop-like, cloud-shaped bastards with little bollocks for feet! Castform was one of the first Pokemon I caught when I started playing Pokemon Go, so I have a slight fondness for the cute little bollock cloud, bollock sun, bollock raindrop and bollock snowflake. And yesterday’s Castform Community Day was a lot of fun! Wait, what’s that? It wasn’t a Castform Community Day? It was a Lotad Community Research Day? Well I wouldn’t have guessed, considering how many Castforms were spawning and how many of them were shiny. Unfortunately for Castform, only the normal… [Continue Reading]

Writing VS Roleplaying

Who’d have thought that there was an actual difference between writing and roleplaying? Well, a lot of people, really. Those who read the Daily SPUF regularly might know that I do a lot of writing. By “a lot”, I mean at least 500 words a day, often more, and have been doing so for the last 3 years. Lately, I’ve been doing 1000+ words a day simply because someone around here has to keep the Daily SPUF daily rather than weekly. In fact, this desperation to make sure that the Daily SPUF has an article published every single day means… [Continue Reading]

Printers are Evil

Every single printer I have ever used, seen or heard of is evil. It doesn’t matter whether a printer is a brand spanking new printer or a relic from the past, printers are evil things that seek to ruin your day. Printers can smell fear, they can smell urgency and they WILL ruin your day if you can. For example, I have a printer in our office. If I plug it in to my computer to print something off, most of the time it will do as I ask it to. Unless it’s close to running out of ink and… [Continue Reading]

I Hate Apps

I hate mobile apps. I can be quite a progressive person at times, but I am also quite a stick in the mud on many things. The main thing being the creation and selling of mobile apps. Sure, the mobile market has outpaced desktop usage and the mobile market is a massive thing we should all be a part of, but is it really a nice thing for everyone to make money off? I hate apps in a lot of different ways. I hate the fact that some apps are dumped on a brand new phone, like the Twitter and… [Continue Reading]
