Quest for a Wired, Nutty Ditto – Let’s Go, Meltan

To coincide with the release of the new Let’s Go: Pikachu and Eevee games on the Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Go received an update and a mini event. The update includes a quest that rewards you with a brand new Pokemon, exclusive to the Switch games and Pokemon Go – the weird thing known as Meltan. Meltan first appeared after the Chikorita community day, replacing all the Chikoritas and other Pokemon who were roaming around. I actually saw one before the event ended, sitting between a couple of Chikoritas, and assumed it was just a broken placeholder or something, especially considering… [Continue Reading]

Vox Solaris – An Intro Quest to Fortuna and the Orb Vallis

Yes, I stayed up until the update hit. For me, it arrived at around 11pm, and you bet your ass that I stayed up and waited for 4gb of data to download on my slow-as-heck internet connection. It was one of the longest waits I’ve had in a while, but it was also reasonably short. And of course, the first thing I do is go to Fortuna! Just like Plains of Eidolon, Fortuna has an opening cut scene you only ever see the first time you go there. Unlike Plains of Eidolon, I couldn’t help but sing along. Also unlike… [Continue Reading]

A Perfect Ending to a Mythical Discovery

After so damn long, I finally managed to finish A Mythical Discovery, the special research in Pokemon Go for Mew. I got stuck on this quest so many damn times. But it all finished very abruptly and probably in the best way possible. So the Mew quest is a bit of a funny one, and is actually a requirement if you want to do the Celebi quest. The Celebi quest unlocks when you reach stage 4 of 8 of A Mythical Discovery. But both quests are pretty similar, with the same old series of steps. The Mew quest though doesn’t… [Continue Reading]

Chimera Prologue – A New Mini Quest

I’ll be honest, I was surprised when I heard that there was a new quest included in the recent Warframe update. The fact that it was 3GB suggested that there was more behind the scenes, but I just assumed that 3GB was all part of the huge number of bug fixes and changes or something. Nope, there’s a mini quest. Heads up! Spoilers ahead, because this quest is basically a HUGE spoiler of what’s to come. If you want to play it, you need to have completed every other main quest up until now, including the Sacrifice. Chimera Prologue has… [Continue Reading]

A Ripple in Time – Special Research for Celebi

Special Research in Pokemon Go is, as the name suggests, special research that has you go through various tasks, working your way towards a legendary Pokemon. At the time of writing, there are two special research quests, the Mew Quest “A Mythical Discovery” and the Celebi Quest “A Ripple in Time”. While I still need about 60 more Magikarp candies for the Mew quest, I’m so close to catching that damn Celebi. It’s been a real slog. Funnily enough, step one was simple. I had to power up Pokemon five times by feeding them candy, I had to battle in… [Continue Reading]

An Autistic Space Kid – The Chains of Harrow Update

So the Chains of Harrow update is here, on time and chock-block full of stuff. Earth got remastered, melee weapon Riven Mods are now a thing, there’s a new update, a ton of QOL changes, raids being broken again and a new quest. I’m just going to talk about the quest, because a lot of this stuff would be better off in their own articles. Just so you know, tons of spoilers ahead. But it was obvious from the update page alone that the subject of this quest, Rell, was autistic. Couldn’t have made it more obvious if they’d tried.… [Continue Reading]

The Nonsense that is the Glast Gambit Quest

Who likes gambling? Raise your hands! Well, none of you probably like gambling as much as the fictional Nef Anyo, a nefarious piece of shit character from Warframe, who you could formally kick the shit out of on Phobos before he was replaced with the Sergeant. Anyway, this Nef is a complete cock. Because back in the last major update, he went and fucking kidnapped the children from a colony of peaceful folks called the Mycona and left them defenseless. The Perrin Sequence, a bunch of friendly Corpus, are offering vast amounts of money to pay their ransoms, but Nef… [Continue Reading]

Octavia’s Anthem – The Trouble with Cephalons

On Friday 24th, Update 20 came out for Warframe. Dubbed Octavia’s Anthem, it boasted “30 pages” of updates, fixes and changes. They were not wrong. The update was just over 1GB to download, amd featured the new Warframe Octavia, as well as the quest to obtain her. Octavia’s Anthem is an… interesting quest to say the least. NOTE: SPOILERS AHEAD. I can’t really write a non-spoiler-y review of this quest as it is SUPER lore-heavy. As always, you have to talk to someone. If you have access to the quest (which requires the War Within to be completed), you can… [Continue Reading]

The War Within for real this time

If there is one thing that terrifies me most in video games, it’s children being killed in unskippable yet jumpy cutscenes by evil monsters. I’m not normally scared of being killed or anything (unless it’s unexpected and makes me jump) but the whole watching a kid die really bothers me. Even more so when I am playing the kid character, and the form of death is being crushed in the jaws of a beast and dragged underground, akin to something from Tremors but with prettier CGI. What does this have to do with Warframe and its second newest quest, the… [Continue Reading]

My Little Kubrow

The thing about hatching a Helminth Charger before completing the tutorial pet quest Howl of the Kubrow is that half the stuff involved in getting your Helminth Charger into battle doesn’t… actually work. So after some messing around, I got myself another Kubrow egg and went and bred myself a Kubrow. What the fuck is a Kubrow you ask? It’s a space dog. With a horn on its nose. Kubrows are first introduced to you on Earth, and compared to the weak Grineer you meet in your first missions, Kubrows can actually be very dangerous to a newbie. But then… [Continue Reading]
