Ralts Community Day

The Ralts Community Day was a few days ago and it was a genuinely very nice one. It was my brother’s birthday, we’d done a couple of raids in the morning and the afternoon was slightly cooler than Mudkip Day, which was in the middle of a massive heatwave. But Ralts Community Day was a tad different, for a handful of reasons. The first is that every single egg obtained during the event was a 10km egg, which would be 2.5km with the 1/4 hatch times on eggs. All of these eggs though would hatch into a Ralts. Which is… [Continue Reading]

Goofing Around in Video Games

With the amount of competitive engagements in both PvP and PvE games out there, it can sometimes get a little tiresome always trying to reach out to be the best of the best. So why not take a break from that and try to do fun stuff for once? Sure, doing fun stuff might not be the most efficient thing available – or can even be borderline griefing if not done in the right way – but it ensures a fun time for (hopefully) everyone involved. Be it T-Posing on hoverboards with your squad in Fortnite, trying out new mods… [Continue Reading]

Five Cool Secondary Weapons You Should Try

Secondary weapons are a very mixed bag in Warframe. Some of them are incredibly mediocre, some of them are insanely powerful. There’s a lot of stuff jumbled in between as well, but there’s only so many dual pistol weapons we can talk about. Today, we’re going to look at five cool secondary weapons you should try. They might not all be ‘meta’ weapons but they all have their own little niches. The Hand Cannon: The Pandero The Pandero is both a semi-automatic revolver-like weapon and a shotgun. I mean, physically, it makes no sense what so ever, since the clip/magazine/whatever… [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]

Worms – An Odd Party Game

Sometimes the Jackbox Party Pack Games, games like Drawful and Survive the Internet, aren’t the sort of party game you want. Sometimes beating the shit out of each other as weird, brightly coloured rubber men isn’t the sort of thing you want as a party game either. Sometimes you want something intellectual, with a bit of strategy. Something that doesn’t involve trivia or anything like that. Out of all the games one could end up playing, the last time I had people round, we somehow ended up playing Worms Armageddon. You know, that ancient game where you control little pink… [Continue Reading]

Fun Warframe Weapons You Should Try

While the majority of weapons in Warframe are either pointy things you hit people with or guns that do various amounts of pew-pewing, there are definitely some guns that you really should try. The Ogris There’s only one rocket launcher in Warframe currently and it’s the Ogris, a really ugly lump of a weapon that actually originally used to look like the Black Box. While Grineer Bombards use the Ogris to great effect, it’s… not very good. Sure, the Ogris does a lot of damage, but you will most likely blow yourself up. Still, stick Heavy Caliber on it (+damage,… [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]

World of Goo

World of Goo is a nice game. It’s a cute game. It’s also kinda weird and has hints of a dystopian future controlled by ruthless corporations. But it’s good. I also had no idea where I got it from until I checked my Humble Bundle account. World of Goo, alongside a bunch of other small games like Fieldrunners and Osmos, was one of my very few Humble Bundle purchases, mostly because the games were DRM free. In fact, I actually used to have World of Goo installed on my previous smart phone. I have it on Steam, I have it… [Continue Reading]

IT’S OVER 1900! Celebrating 1900 articles and 900 Medic articles – Giveaway!

I said I wouldn’t do milestone articles and stuff but I like the number 900 and the number 1900 has the number 900 in it as well, so double bubble. The 2000th article is still a way away, and it’s unlikely that the articles I write will coincide with the big 2K. Also I just kinda wanted to do a giveaway. But first off, let’s spend a moment thinking just how awesome we are, having published over 1900 articles on the Daily SPUF, one a day since our inception, and the fact that Missy Medic here, the person writing this… [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]
