My Problem With Mastery Locks on Weapons

The other day, I mentioned a low MR Volt, who had just begun his adventure. As we played with him, he asked a lot of questions. His biggest one was “where can I find a good AOE weapon for my MR?” That’s a genuinely great question, because Warframe has a LOT of enemies and you need a lot of them killed. Back then, at MR4, the only weapon we could really recommend was the Hek, since most explosive weapons unlock at MR5 or higher. Eventually, we gave the guy some suggestions, as well as a lot of probably unnecessary help.… [Continue Reading]

A Ramble on Baking Cakes

I love baking cakes. Something about baking cakes kinda reminds me of, well, science. Not actual, proper science. While yes, there is chemistry involved in baking a cake, it’s not sciency. Sure, I’m taking things and mixing them together, but I’m not really aware of all the chemical reactions going on. Aside from maybe the baking powder reacting and forming pockets of air as it does so. No, baking reminds me of the sort of silly science you’d do as a kid. Just mixing stuff together to see what works. Basically doing my own little experiments. Now, when it comes… [Continue Reading]

On… Stuff… So Much Stuff…

The other day, we completely emptied a house. Why we had to empty that house isn’t important. It was full of my family’s old stuff and it all needed to go. Frankly, we had already cleared out most of the house. In one final session, we finished the job, having hired a skip and filled it up. As brother sorted out the last few bits though, I stared at that skip. And all I could think of was “holy shit we had a lot of stuff.” But were did all this stuff come from? Honestly? No idea. My whole family… [Continue Reading]

Rambling On About A Wrestling Match

I’m not really a fan of wrestling. It’s a bit of silly fun, as far as I’m concerned. The testosterone-fueled equivalent of a soap opera. You’ve got plots, drama and iffy acting, combined with near-naked men fighting each other. Yeah, sure, it’s not really a sport, but it’s entertaining. Just requires a suspension of your disbelief. We do it all the time for movies and video games, and wrestling is no different. Personally, I’m not that into it. I mean, I’ll watch a wrestling match if I’m told that it’s “cool” or “awesome” or something like that. While I wouldn’t… [Continue Reading]

IKEAFrame in your Ship is a whole different can of worms…

I’ve chatted about IKEAFrame before, but mostly for clan dojos. IKEAFrame is a silly name for all the decorating you can do in your private spaces in Warframe. Clan dojos offer vast amounts of space which you can freely decorate. And by decorate, that means painstakingly placing every single item, one at a time. But then you have to painstakingly fund every single item you place. It can take a long time, but, ideally, dojo decorating only costs time. Everything needs to be paid for using in-game resources. But since you are collecting these over time, the grind isn’t too… [Continue Reading]

The Slowly Increasing Need for More Backpack Space

Right now, I have enough space to hold 1450 Pokemon on my level 42 Pokemon GO account. Also right now, I am using 1430 of those 1450 slots. There’s probably an event coming up, so I’ll need to clear some space. I need to start transferring Pokemon, so I can catch more of them. After all, I can’t keep every Pokemon, right? Well, I’ll try… I don’t like deleting things. I’m a weirdly sentimental person. Even when I am running out of space, I don’t like deleting things or throwing things away. The thought is always “what if this turns… [Continue Reading]

On Passing The Help Along

A lot of my early hours in Warframe were spent in a daze. I was dragged from one node to the next, not understanding what I was doing. Despite having a high MR player helping me, I struggled greatly. In fact, I actually rage-quit a few times, especially after being dragged into a Sortie at a fresh MR4. Still using the MK1 Braton. I didn’t actually hit my Warframe stride until quite a bit later on. But along the way, I received a little help from complete strangers. All sorts of help. And not just help with missions! Funnily enough,… [Continue Reading]

The “It’s Not Very Space-Ninja-y” Argument That Makes No Sense

For years and years, I’ve seen the same argument pop up in Warframe. It doesn’t matter what the overall discussion is, but there’s a high chance this argument will pop up. Whether people are complaining about the art style or a new Warframe or a shiny new weapon or Ephemera, someone will use this argument. No matter what, you can’t escape. It’s always the same one. “This doesn’t fit inside our space ninja game”. The current complaints are about a pair of wings. But the same has been said about everything from the current teased Revenant Deluxe skin, all the… [Continue Reading]

My Thoughts on Community Days with PvP-Orientated Moves

Over the last year or so, pretty much every Community Day has been the same. It’s a not very new shiny, that gets a move designed for PvP. The last Pokemon that got a move useful for PvP was Rhydon with Rock Wrecker, back in February 2020. Before then, we had a basic pattern of “cool Pokemon” then “Starter Pokemon”. But 2020 changed all that by bringing back repeat candidates and having… unusual moves. Of course, this hasn’t made everyone happy. And, of course, I’m going to give my opinions on the matter. To be fair, there’s only so much… [Continue Reading]

I’d Like A Nightwave Story About Someone Who Isn’t An Ass

Nightwave’s original premise was quite simple. Over the course of a season or episode, we’d be told a story. As the story went along, we’d learn more clues or get different rewards. However, two things happened as we went along. Firstly, the story complexity increased over time. Glassmaker’s story involved us finding clues, while the Wolf just had us, well, fighting him. The second thing is that things always got worse as time went on. Not only did these episodes all drag on, but they all kinda ended on a low note. Wolf of Saturn Six ended with escaped prisoners… [Continue Reading]
