Things You Should Never Buy When it Comes to Warframe

Warframe’s a free to play game. You can get to Mastery Rank 25 and unlock every game-changing item in the game for free, aside from Founders’ items. You can trade for the in-game premium currency Platinum, which is extremely rare for a free to play title. There are also a lot of items only available for free currencies in the game. It’s really pretty amazing. BUT there are still a handful of expensive pitfalls that you really should avoid. Mod Packs These things are fucking awful. You’re guaranteed one ‘rare mod’ in each pack, but rare just means gold, and… [Continue Reading]

How to Hunt an Eidolon

In light of the 23 minutes of raw footage of capturing Eidolons I posted on the SPUF of Legend Youtube channel, I should probably, you know, tell you how to hunt and capture an Eidolon of your own. Because that would be useful. Step 1: Complete the War Within. You NEED the dumb space kid for this. Step 2: Complete Saya’s Vigil, the quest for Gara, so you can talk to her pretending to be dead husband Onkko. Step 3: Speak to Onkko to get your Mote Amp, or better still, kill Vomvalysts and other non-Eidolon Sentients, steal their Sentient… [Continue Reading]

A Bonus Unlikely Story – The Scared Excalibur

“An Equinox, an Ivara and a newbie Excalibur head to a bar!” the black and red Ash grinned as he dropped down from an unprotected vent. “Well, the other two bullet jump in, the Excalibur just walks…” “Don’t make fun of the newbie,” the equally edgy black and red Ivara tutted. “Not his fault he’s literally just escaped from Vor’s influence.” “Well, he’s only going to hold us back!” Ash’s mood dropped. “This is a spy mission after all! A Spy mission on a Grineer ship of all things. Isn’t the place for a newbie Excalibur!” Again, Ivara tutted. “We’re… [Continue Reading]

A Series of Unlikely Gaming Stories 2 – The Diamond Volibear

Back in Season 3, things were simpler. Things were busy. There was always people playing matches in League of Legends. The map was ugly, the characters were blocky, but things were pretty stable and everyone seemed somewhat satisfied. Even a newbie like me, I was satisfied with the game. Then, I was a newbie, really slowly leveling up. I only had a handful of games under my belt, and in those days, it took forever to level up a new account. Even if you got all those first wins of the day bonuses and made use of the experience boost… [Continue Reading]

New and Improved Tips for New Warframe Players

Just under a year ago, I wrote this article about Warframe tips for new players. At the time, I was a newbie, being carried around the star chart by much more skilled players. Now though, I’m a much better player and I actually somewhat know what I’m doing. At the very least, I can give a better idea of what you should be doing. After all, older players have helped me. I should pass the baton and help newer players. Help them with some better tips. Early Choices I used to recommend choosing whatever you want as your starter character,… [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]

Medic’s First Time in Planetside 2

You ever get that feeling where you’re supposed to be doing something, like attacking the objective, but aren’t? Or are doing it in a way that totally isn’t helpful? Or are completely lost and supposed to be doing something? Well, that’s how I feel about Planetside 2. Before we start, I joined the purple guys. Their space suits looked cooler. And I have to agree with aabicus, their butts are nicer too. Of course, I decided to play the tutorial. Which kinda made sense, I think. Aabicus, the resident person who plays Planetside 2, decided to bring me along into… [Continue Reading]

Advanced Options – Some tips before you press the big Play Multiplayer button

Now, before we continue, I have written an article about newbie tips before, but the tips were slightly more generic. This just covers the Advanced Options menu, which many people seem to overlook. Weirdly, it’s actually easier to use than the normal Options menu, but contains TF2-specific options. The newbie really does struggle when it comes to Team Fortress 2. While it looks like a standard first person shooter at first glance (ignoring the cartoony art style), it doesn’t exactly play like one. There’s lots of tiny hints and tricks you should know before you even click the big Play… [Continue Reading]

Why your first round should be on 2fort

I’m serious. I know 2fort is like the least-respected map in TF2, and a haven of bad map design and stalemates to end all stalemates. Where a single Engineer can indefinitely keep an entire team of demo-medics at bay thanks to the spawn points and chokeholds all favoring the defensive team to a horrific degree. But you know what? That’s not what you notice on your first round of TF2. You care about figuring out what this gun is you’re holding. How movement works. Why anyone plays people other than the giant Russian. And 2fort does a great job of… [Continue Reading]
