A Cheese Sauce Paradox

I love macaroni cheese, but the best thing about it, aside from shoveling pasta and sauce down my throat, is making the cheesy sauce to go on top of the macaroni. There’s something about making that creamy white cheese sauce that is so appealing. I don’t know what it is. Every step is enjoyable. The melting down of the butter is nice. It’s fun watching a lump of butter slowly shrink down and bubble in its own juices, disappearing into nothing. The mixing of the flour is fun too. Liquid meets powder, combining, turning into something no longer liquid but… [Continue Reading]

A Bunch of Lovely Electric Warframes

Volt couldn’t remember how he got there. He wasn’t actually sure where ‘there’ was. Either way, it was a very tight space, with only just enough room for him to stand up straight. What bothered Volt more though were all the needles sticking out of his metallic Warframe flesh. Every few seconds, a tingling sensation would run up his body then drain away, as if the needles were… sucking electricity out of him? Volt wasn’t sure. The last thing Volt could remember was being attacked by a literal ton of… No, they weren’t Zanuka Hunters. If they were, they had… [Continue Reading]

Chocolate Truffles for Hot Weather

It’s always hot here. Which means you can’t leave anything that requires non-hot temperatures on the side for any amount of time. Either two things happen, you end up with food covered in ants or you end up with warm, melted food. So things like jelly, ice cream, truffles, cheese cakes, anything like that, it’s a no-go. It stays in the fridge or it goes on the side and makes a horrible mess in a few minutes. That’s really annoying because I really like chocolate truffles. Even though I’m now finally writing this article in NOVEMBER and publishing it in… [Continue Reading]

Inktober 2018 – A Roundup of Images

Turns out, there was a Warframe Inktober thread on the official Warframe forums, in which people who successfully drew something every day for October could get a nice glyph. That’s a shame for me, because I spent my time drawing a load of crap that no one gets. Well, I say a load of crap, it makes more sense when it’s explained, picture by picture. In this article, I’m going to describe what the hell I drew for Inktober 2018. To start off, all the images are related to the Phoviverse, my collection of short stories and weird characters. Day… [Continue Reading]

On the new Destiny 2 expansion – There is actually stuff to do!

So it’s been a while since I talked about the Destiny franchise. Almost a half year ago I bashed the new installment pretty hard on the downsides that featured, because there were… many. Truth be told, ever since a shiny refurbished exotic weapon quest was re-introduced on Destiny 2 back in July, the gameplay aspects gradually got better by the time the Forsaken expansion dropped. For this article I’ll be little more biased towards the positive side. Even though the game still has flaws here and there, I’ll save my long angry rant on the topic of duplicate exotics giving… [Continue Reading]

RED TEXT

The Strata Relay was just ahead. Excalibur’s landing craft, his plain Liset, landed in the hangar, and the young Tenno happily jumped out. There were very few other landing crafts here. Just that yellow Mantis landing craft which always seemed to be parked in that same spot. Didn’t seem to be any other Tenno nearby though. Didn’t matter. He was just there to trade a handful of Prime Parts for Ducats, then go back to farming for relics. Then again, this was Strata Relay. Few people ever came here. Even though it was a new relay. There wasn’t much to… [Continue Reading]

My 7 Favorite Fairy Chess Pieces

Chess is an ancient and noble game, possibly the most played game in history that doesn’t have “Go” anywhere in its title. The pawn, knight, bishop, queen, king and castle-shaped thing are all immortal mainstays in popular culture, their names known worldwide. But of course they’re not the only pieces that ever graced the chessboard. Due to the endless adaptability of the game’s structure and medieval court theme, budding game designers have been eternally designing additional pieces and using them for custom game modes, chess puzzles, or just arguing with strangers on the internet about how viable they’d be. These… [Continue Reading]

Dreams of the Most Badass Game Ever

You ever get a dream that’s so awesome and badass that you wake up and think “HOLY FUCK I WANT TO DO THAT AGAIN?” Well that’s what I had the other night. To the point that I still vividly remember parts of it later on. It was a dream about the most badass game ever. And sadly, a game that will never exist, most likely due to licensing and copyrights. So, this dream was presented to me in the form of a comic convention and a magazine stand filled with copies of PC Gamer. Some sort of special edition magazine… [Continue Reading]

How Do They Eat? Early Warframe Lore Ideas

It’s been known for years that the Warframes we use to kick the asses of Corpus, Grineer and Infested weren’t always what we thought they were. They were never really just people. What they were, we didn’t know. Early lore suggested that the original Warframes were feral and terrifying, hungry, destructive monsters. Rhino Prime’s codex entry (unlocked by owning Rhino Prime and viewing him in your Codex on your ship) was one such example, noting a story from an Orokin scientist, watching as an early Rhino Warframe kills and eats his fellow scientists, only to be calmed by the presence… [Continue Reading]

Bleugh. European Parliament backs copyright changes. Because they are dicks.

First off, a link. To the BBC. Because they understand that stuff better than I do and they’re pretty unbiased. But also because I can’t find any real talk about this on the major news websites I normally visit. Which is suspicious as fuck. Like, seriously. Secondly, another link. To a website that I guess wants to do something about it. And with which I can put a ton of blame on France because they voted like 90% for all this stuff. Like seriously. Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania and Estonia all get a lot of blame as well. As do the… [Continue Reading]
