Destiny 2 – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Years after the TF2 blog stopped being constantly updated, I decided to personally consider “The Daily SPUF” as my new official TF2 blog. However, it wasn’t long until the lack of content in TF2 made The Daily SPUF writers to place other games in the spotlight. I personally wouldn’t have gotten myself addicted to Warframe otherwise. Almost half a year ago when I first started writing this article, I was extremely excited about Destiny 2 coming to PC, even though I didn’t have a clue on how exactly should I approach new players. My initial aim was to introduce and… [Continue Reading]

Thick

Sirens blared as the three Tenno charged through the Corpus base. They were looking for their target, a teleporting Corpus Tech who had knowledge on a super weapon the Corpus were looking to build for the Grineer. The Corpus Tech in question was teleporting between rooms, but so far the Tenno had kept up. Suddenly, a lockdown was initiated. While the first two Tenno managed to slide under the doors into the same room as the Tech, the third was locked out. “You alright back there, Excal?” Volt shouted as he drew his polearm. “I’ll be fine…” Excalibur shouted back.… [Continue Reading]

The Amazing Art of a Madwoman

Anyone can be an artist if they try hard enough. Sure, having parents who are good at art can help, but art itself is something you spend a long time on, practicing and trying over and over again, working towards some form of perfection. Then again, arty parents can sometimes not help at all, there’s natural talent but even that needs to be refined and taught over time. Most importantly, there needs to be a passion for art. Artistic talent is something that runs in my family. My mum’s side of the family has always been artistic. It passed down… [Continue Reading]

Bumps in the Datascape, or why it’s worth waiting sometimes…

“Wow, Larunda’s busy today!” Volt exclaimed as he and Frost watched fellow Tenno go by. “I thought the Void Trader was at the Kronia relay?” “He is!” Frost tutted. “Everyone is coming here because they want to speak to Simaris and it’s slightly less busy here compared to Kronia.” “I know…” Volt shrugged. “I just assumed everyone would go to Kronia, kill two MOAs with one stone, right? Saves on fuel as well.” Frost glanced at Volt. “You have twenty million credits to your name and you’re worried about fuel costs?” “Hey, being careful is how I managed to get… [Continue Reading]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review!

As a pre-birthday treat, I got to see Pacific Rim: Uprising with the family on the 31st. And it was a good movie. Genuinely a bit of fun. The story follows on from the previous Pacific Rim, being set 10 or so years later after the big victory. They’re still using Jaegars for various bits and pieces, mainly just policing but only seem to have like 5 of them total. And there’s enough scrapyards everywhere that some random kid manages to build a small, single-pilot one. Anyway, there’s been no activity but they’re still training people just in case and… [Continue Reading]

The Black Panther Movie – A Kinda Late Review

So I saw the Black Panther movie. There was none of that nonsense about going to ‘x-only’ screenings or anything like that (same with literally any other movie here) because I live on a tiny little island and the demographic who want to see this film simply don’t care and just want to watch a movie. But it’s a Marvel movie and my brother was desperate to see it, so we went on cheap Tuesday to watch it. Basically? It’s a good movie. Not groundbreaking. Not mind-blowing. Not racist or in your face or insensitive or anything like that. It’s… [Continue Reading]

On Low Blood Sugar

Hypoglycemia, often called low blood sugar, is when the sugar levels in your blood drop below normal levels. How it affects each individual isn’t always the same, but the general symptoms are things like shaking, an inability to concentrate, weakness, clumsiness, confusion and all sorts of not particularly fun things. If left untreated, hypoglycemia can cause someone to lose consciousness or even die, although this only happens if hypoglycemia is not treated for a long time. As to what actually IS low blood sugar? Well for diabetics, it’s a blood sugar measurement below below 3.9 mmol/L. In normal people with functional… [Continue Reading]

A First Night on the Plains

Volt seemed uncertain as the heavy Orokin doors slammed shut behind him. This was his second time out on the plains. The last time he had been here, it was day time, and he lacked the proper tools to not only fight the swarms of Grineer roaming around, but he lacked the ability to gather other resources, such as ores and gems. He wasn’t going to make that same mistake twice. Volt also planned on not making another mistake twice. Today, he was here on the Plains on his own. No more waiting for Rhino to kill everything. No more… [Continue Reading]

Five Songs To Calm One Down

There’s always noise in my head. Always someone talking. Always a conversation. Always a mess of things. There’s almost always some music there as well. The noise doesn’t stop until I go to sleep. But sometimes the noise is so loud that I can’t sleep. So I need some nice, calm, real world music to listen to. So here are five songs which calm me down, and I hope do the same for you. 5. Secunda, TESV Skyrim Soundtrack This song is a fairly obvious one, a track I mentioned in my list of video game songs that I enjoy.… [Continue Reading]

Happy New Year 2018!

Oh hey. It’s 2018. 2017 was fun and all that (depending on what country you’re in currently) but it’s time to move on and look to the future and all that. We’ve got a fresh new year ahead of us and we really shouldn’t let 2017 drag us all down. Things are going to get better! So what does 2018 have in store for us? Games, probably. I honestly haven’t looked up any upcoming games. There’s not been much that’s interested me lately. And honestly there’s a bunch of click bait videos on Youtube that will more likely get you… [Continue Reading]
