Chocolate Chip Tigo Cookies

Cosplay is Hard

An obvious title, but as I nurse a small, burnt finger from a hot glue gun and wait patiently for a bad paint job to dry, it’s something I can rant about. Seriously, cosplay is hard. Well, anything complicated is hard. There’s a lot of piss easy costumes you can do, with just some generic stuff from around the house. It’s a weird, backwards scenario where the more effort you put into a costume, the more quickly things go wrong and you end up wondering if a simple costume made from odds and ends would have been better. For me,… [Continue Reading]

Do you remember your first life?

Medic: My first life in Team Fortress 2 was insanely dull. After spending a tad too long working out how to use the server browser, I found myself in a PL_Goldrush server. It wasn’t anything special, just 23 other people fighting over a damn stationary cart. I decided to start off with Scout, as he was the first class going left to right. So logic dictated that I picked him first. BLU were most of the way through the map. I spawned and switched through all of my weapons, deciding to keep my scattergun out since it was the biggest… [Continue Reading]

I Am The Ultimate Raccoon

I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but I’m a liar. I have fooled all of you. I am not a wolf, but a raccoon. Not only that, but I am the ultimate raccoon. Well, at least according to Ultimate Chicken Horse, which I’m sure you smart folks already know is a plentiful and unending fountain of credible scientific data. I’ve learnt so much already, such as all the many athletic capabilities of my friends and I, the many contraptions that may harm us during our friendly races, oh… And that we’re cursed with immortality within a realm run… [Continue Reading]

A Particularly Bittersweet Departure

(and, A Particularly Hopeful Prelude) Final Chapter: Farewell, Nostalgic Yesterday@save_clear(restart) A small voice with ever so slight electronic distortion could be heard throughout the room. “It looks like this is finally it, huh?” At the same time, a small group of individuals stared down at the ultra resolution tablet screen. The specs for handheld device cameras had improved significantly in recent times, as had stereoscopic 3D technology. With such a high level of detail, it was difficult to differentiate the images displayed on the screen from a view through a physical window of some sort. In fact, if it weren’t… [Continue Reading]

Bloody Hell, that Sonicor…

You remember when I talked about my most used weapon, the Ignis, then teased about another weapon that might end up replacing it? You know, the picture at the end of the article, with my invisible Loki holding that very weapon? Well this article isn’t about that weapon. This article is about the Sonicor. The Sonicor is amazing. Beyond amazing. Okay, what the fuck IS the Sonicor? I’m not really sure, to be honest. It’s an arm-mounted weapon sort of thing. Definitely Corpus in origin, but I have never really seen any Corpus actually USING the Sonicor*. It attaches to… [Continue Reading]

The Closet Sniper Rifle

So, almost a year ago now, I talked about finally finding a way of playing Demoman that I enjoyed. I mentioned discovering a Soldier play style too as a footnote, but I wanted to give him a spotlight of his own! Figured he’d earned it after the amount rocket jumping around I’ve been doing as him recently. But more accurately, I want to talk about the Direct Hit. I used to see Soldier as a slow, boring and clumsy type of character which I just couldn’t find the appeal of. But the Direct Hit (and a lovely shiny pair of… [Continue Reading]

Do What Makes You Happy

Being a person on the internet who visits video game forums, I see a lot of recurring stuff. Not quite the same as the things I mentioned in my article about arguments between Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch, but the idea is similar. No matter where you go, you see similar trails of complaints, criticisms, jokes, memes and more. You get tons of new people (hopefully) asking for tips and you have tons of veterans either giving them tips or complaining that there are too many newbies in the game and that they just want to play Sniper in peace.… [Continue Reading]

Home on the Range

Shooters. The genre where you murder the other guy before he murders you. And what better way to train yourself for the horrifying prospect of a life or death showdown with another cold, calculated, killer (like yourself) than showing some wooden targets who’s boss? Oh, okay! Well if you’re going to be all fussy about it, YES! There’s slightly more that goes into it than hitting your desired target, something about the “horrors of war” or something? But I’ll have you know those wooden targets can be a pretty fierce bunch too and they pop up all over the place!… [Continue Reading]
