Single Player Pixelmon is the Most Depressing I’ve Played Recently

Lately, I’ve been playing on a very nice multiplayer Pixelmoon server that recently upgraded to version 7.0.1 of Pixelmon Reforged, bringing with it all the Pokemon from the Alolan region, Z-Moves and more. The server community is very nice (if a bit ravenous and grabby) and, thanks to the various plugins they have, it’s not too hard to actually catch Pokemon. Even if you start off with nothing at all, you can slowly start catching Pokemon and leveling yourself up, because the server optionally offers you basic things like 5 Pokeballs every 2 hours, as well as daily kits containing… [Continue Reading]

Even More Grindframe Than Usual

Is it just me or are things a lot more grindy in Warframe lately? More grindy than usual? I say this because a new update, Buried Debts is out and with it comes a new Warframe whose blueprint is locked at at the highest tier of Vox Solaris. Meanwhile, the last Warframe released, Baruuk, also had his components locked away behind Vox Solaris standing. I’ve talked about Syndicates before and how their standing systems work. You basically have your mastery rank, multiplied by a thousand’s worth of points you can earn per day for a Syndicate, after which you can’t… [Continue Reading]

Into the Candy Grinder

Before we start, no, this isn’t about Candy Crush. I’ve been considering writing an article about that for a while, but I just don’t know where to start with that insanely popular mobile game. No, this article is about the other insanely popular mobile game, Pokemon Go. “Wait, there’s no candy grinder in Pokemon Go.” Yes there is. In fact there is enough candy for every base Pokemon up until the beginnings of Generation 4. When you catch a Pokemon, you are rewarded candy. 3 candy for a normal catch, 6 candy if you use a Pinap berry on level… [Continue Reading]

More On K-Drives

It’s been a while since Fortuna released and while I may be max rank with Solaris United and would be max rank with Vox Solaris if I actually remembered to go and rank up with them, I am still only on the second level with the Vent Kids. Because frankly, I don’t have much reason to use my K-Drive. The reason is pretty simple. No matter what I do, it’s easier and quicker just to use my Archwing. Right now I’m rocking Itzal, teleporting across the Orb Vallis like a demented Loki/Nova crossbreed with wings, but even Elytron, the slowest… [Continue Reading]

And We All Grind Together… Together…

Someone for the love of all that is good and pure, please help me get this fucking song out of my head. Ever since the Tennocon reveal of Fortuna, I have had the song We All Life Together stuck in my head. On loop. And now I’m going to put it in your heads so you can all be stuck as well. Seriously though, as many parodies of the song have already suggested, there will be a LOT of grind in Fortuna. If anything, the Corpus have always been more grindy than the Grineer. They’re obsessed with loot and credits.… [Continue Reading]

Payment in Detonite Injectors and Fieldrons

I’ve been doing a lot of Invasions lately. Or rather, looking at invasions and wondering whether I can be bothered to do them or not. And then eventually doing them anyway because I need loot. Well, I say loot, I mean components. Well, I say components, I mean a handful of resources to build clan tech weapons. Alright, so Invasions are simple. There’s two types: you either have Corpus attacking Grineer nodes or vice versa, or you have Grineer or Corpus fighting off Infested, often called an Infested Outbreak. If it’s an Infested Outbreak and the mission node under attack… [Continue Reading]

Plague Star Has Returned!

From April 5th to April 17th, Plague Star is back, bringing Infested and a massive, hideous lump of cancerous matter to the middle of the Plains of Eidolon. The event is a platform-wide operation, affecting the Plains no matter what if you’re on PC, and is probably coming back to Console versions in 2-3 weeks. The way Plague Star works is pretty much the same as last time. You grab the Infested Catalyst blueprint from your Clan Dojo, you build some and equip them in your gear slot, you accept the bounty from Konzu in Cetus, you head out to… [Continue Reading]

Building a new friend for Volt Prime

In Warfame, you’re just some person with a collection of scary, metal suits. But in my head, each suit is actually an individual character with their own personalities, which you may have spotted in some of my recent Warframe fan fictions. Of course, the sort of person that I am, I realised that while my beloved Volt has a buddy in Frost, my precious Volt Prime has no friends at all. I needed Frost Prime. Problem is, Frost Prime is pretty rare. He was ‘vaulted’ (i.e. retired) a long time ago. Then December 2016 came along and Frost Prime, alongside… [Continue Reading]

Warframe – Another Look

So my current game of the moment is Warframe, the free to play space ninja game. I was playing it when my hard drive started to die, and now I have it installed on my External (good ol’ Phovidrive), I can play it occasionally in the evenings on other people’s computers. Despite actually being a very pretty game, it runs amazingly well even on potato laptops. TF2 has been working alright too, and I finally got Left 4 Dead 2 and Saints Row: the Third to work, but nothing works as well as Warframe currently. Last time I mentioned Warframe, I said… [Continue Reading]

Warframe – Still Not Sure

So I said I was angry at video games. I still am. But I felt that Warframe deserved a third chance. Yes, third chance, because I played it over a year ago, got stuck somewhere, stopped playing, then uninstalled it to make space for another game. Elder Scrolls Online, I think. Coincidentally, Elder Scrolls Online was uninstalled to make room for Warframe this time round. 60GB of hard drive space could be used for a good 5-6 normal sized games. My first time playing was on an old account. I don’t even remember playing that account, and I’d been told… [Continue Reading]
