Little Tiny Tips for Pokemon Go

I’ve been playing Pokemon Go for a year now. I’m sitting quite happily at level 38 with a fine collection of Pokemon and way too many Rayquazas. But there are tons of things I wish I’d known when I first started playing. Little tiny things that I just, well, know now, almost subconsciously. Here’s a list of some of these tips, so you don’t make the same mistakes I did. Wait Until It Attacks, Then Throw Catching Legendaries is really hard at first, but you have a better chance of hitting a Pokemon if you throw just as the attack… [Continue Reading]

A Simple Modding Guide for Weapons

Modding in Warframe can be tricky. Between the random rarity of mods you need, the time you have to play, the amount of credits you have and the amount of Endo you are able to obtain, making sure your weapons are strong enough to deal with enemies isn’t an easy task. And then you have to work out what mods you have to stick on your weapons in the first place. Well, here’s the really, really simple guide. Step 1: Base Damage Mods. You want to get these mods, put them on your weapons and fully rank them if possible.… [Continue Reading]

Even More Tips for Warframe Sorties

Sometimes I forget how much of a struggle Sorties can be if you’re a newer player. I forgot how much of a struggle they were for me, and I didn’t really feel that struggle go away until I hit MR16. At that point, I’d forma’d all my favourite gear and I had a nice, reliable arsenal of weapons to choose from. But before then, sorties feel like nothingĀ  but bullet sponges while you die with ease. So, following on from my other articles, here are yet more tips for Warframe sorties. Get Tanky Enemies in sorties tend to do more… [Continue Reading]

More Things You Should NOT Take in Radiation Hazard and Radiation Elemental Enhancement Missions

In light of a recent Radiation Hazard Survival, and since everyone’s doing Sorties today because of the weekly elite challenges for Nightwave, I think it’s worth looking at a bunch of other things you REALLY shouldn’t take into Radiation Hazard and Radiation Elemental Enhancement missions. A quick thing though, there is a difference between Radiation Hazard and Radiation Elemental Enhancement. Radiation Hazard missions spawn big green clouds throughout missions that give you Radiation damage if you walk through them. You can avoid them completely with an Operator’s Void Mode. Radiation Elemental Enhancement means that all enemies have resistance to elemental… [Continue Reading]

Writing About Writers’ Block

It’s probably a testament to writers’ block just how long this article has sat here, all empty and quiet. There are other article drafts that have sat around for longer, many of which are leftovers from the golden years of SPUF (rest in peace) written and started by people who never came back and will never be finished. Some of those articles may end up getting adopted one day, but as far as I’m concerned, they’re just part of the baggage around here now. They were still there when we hit 2000 articles and now we’re straying further and further… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon Go Tips for Twonks

It’s fine, being a newbie. Everyone was a newbie once. Most people grow out of it as they learn and get better. Some people *cough* like me *cough* could use a little extra help. So here’s a bunch of random tips that I’ve picked up since I started playing back in August. Use The Whole Screen Don’t be an idiot like me. You can use the whole screen to throw a Pokeball. This is most useful on those bastard Legendaries (and Pokemon like Gengar and Clefable) who like to stand really far away and taunt you as balls bounce at… [Continue Reading]

The 5 Best Pistols in Payday 2

As your starter secondary of choice and the cornerstone of the Fugitive skill trees, pistols are one of the core weapon categories in Payday 2. How do you choose which pistol is the best? Well, everyone will have a different list, but here’s mine! Number 1 – The best all-around pistol is the Baby Deagle, it’s got the damage output of the magnums with the concealment, firing speeds and versatility of the smaller caliber options. If you don’t have the Ultimate edition, the White Streak is a base game option that only suffers from fewer available mods Number 2 –… [Continue Reading]

Fishing on the beaches, just off Cetus

There’s not been much for me to do lately in Warframe. While I wait for the next fairly large update, while I wait for Chroma Prime to finish baking in my foundry and while I awkwardly level up a bunch of Dual Swords that I don’t like, I find myself drifting between tasks. Normally I’d be spending my time doing Fissure missions, opening relics and hoping for something nice, but in my bid to get the latest Prime items, I’ve worn myself out. The same can be said for my normal money runs on Seimeni and the Index, and Sorties… [Continue Reading]

On top of that, secret messages have been sent out, teasing Fortuna and the Orb Vallis further. But before we all jump into our landing crafts and head down to Venus, there’s probably a few things we should do first.

Today, we’re covering The 5 Best Skills in Payday 2. (Note that we’re talking loud, there are enough skill points to just… [Continue Reading]
