Why is Mann VS Machine Fun?

As one can tell from my increasing play times and number of articles about Warframe, despite the fact I still call myself Medic, I play very little Team Fortress 2 any more. Normally, you can’t get me to even open the game. I refuse to touch the competitive mode with a pointy stick, I couldn’t chill out enough to play community competitive and playing Medic in pubs is often a tiring experience as any Medic will tell you. But if someone invites me to play Mann VS Machine? Fuck it, I’m in! But why? What drives me to play what… [Continue Reading]

More Rambling About Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is something I kinda wish I jumped on earlier. But how could I have jumped on the bandwagon when I had no mobile data on my phone plan? It’s only been the last year or so that I’ve had 4G to use, and holy heck I have treated it like a scarce resource. To the point that I genuinely felt bad getting a €6 top up of 250MB. Because I’d used up my 150MB playing Pokemon GO. Yes, mobile data here is expensive. And free WI-FI areas are few and far between, assuming you can even connect in… [Continue Reading]

The Anti-Roller

Rolling is good in Warframe. It’s amazing. Rolling makes you a smaller target. Rolling makes you take less damage. Rolling enables you to reposition and change your direction in an instant. Rolling is a key part of being able to traverse maps quickly and efficiently. The only negative thing about rolling is the fact that it cancels reload animations, but rolling with some weapons at the end of the reload can shave a few seconds off. Basically, rolling is great. Unless you’re playing Limbo. You see, Limbo doesn’t roll. When Limbo does his equivalent of a roll, he enters the… [Continue Reading]

Fallout 4, Beauty and Grace with Radiation

“I got you a game!” Brother says as he throws a plastic bag at me. “Noooo!” I scream as I stare at my overflowing Steam library, filled with unplayed games. “It’s Fallout 4 though! Game of the Year version! Only cost €15!” Brother counters, thrusting the game into my hands. “You like Fallout, right?” Actually, I don’t really like Fallout. It’s a cool world but it’s too slow and too close to real life. I’ve always been way more of a fantasy person, never been a fan of post-apocalyptic scenarios in radiation-filled landscapes. But Fallout 4 was a gift and… [Continue Reading]

I Completely Forgot To Do A Deadpool 2 Movie Review

I’ve seen Deadpool 2 three times and I haven’t reviewed it. Isn’t that a bit crazy? Isn’t it crazy that I saw the movie two whole times? Well that last thing not so much. Because my dad (big comic book fan) wanted to see it with me, so did my brother and so did my cousin on one of the last showings. Totally a family film. No, really. It’s a family film. As in the main theme of the story is family and having people you can fall back on and relationship stuff and things like that. All that being… [Continue Reading]

Warframe and Destiny are nothing alike and I really don’t get the comparisons any more…

Ever since the Destiny 2 Demo/Beta I played ages ago, I have never understood why people compare Warframe to Destiny. The two games are very different. And the similarities are rather… superficial. Actually, we should start with the similarities, since the differences are a lot bigger. Well, both games are set in sci-fi futures for humanity, with space travel and more convoluted lore than you can shake a magic stick at. Visually the games are quite similar, made worse by the fact that they’re set mainly in our own solar system. But even the lore premises are kinda weird and… [Continue Reading]

A Warframe Tier List, or lack of thereof

“What is the best Warframe for Spy missions?” I’ve been asked as I cheese my way through a tricky Kuva Fortress vault, using Ivara and the Infiltrator augment, making almost all cameras, traps and other methods of detection obsolete. I don’t answer, mainly because I’m busy hacking terminals and dropping a Liset Air Support charge because a Loki followed me in and triggered the alarms. But afterwards? I still don’t have an answer. Why? Because anyone can do a Spy mission. All Ivara does is make Spy missions easier. But better players will instead take Limbo or Nova, tripping alarms… [Continue Reading]

2000 Hours of Warframe

It’s finally happened. I’ve played a game for more hours than Team Fortress 2 and for more than 2000 hours. Congratulations, Warframe, you have won my undying honour and respect. Give yourselves a pat on the back. Anyway, over the course of those 2000 hours, there are a lot of things I have learned. And some things I haven’t really learned but am basically still guessing about. I can actually remember a lot of little things, like Davjo helping me sell a Tigris Prime part so I could buy my first colour palette, the broken bow aabicus had when I… [Continue Reading]

‘Zilla

Everyone I have spoken to apart from my mum seems to hate the 1998 Godzilla movie. Not one of the Japanese ones, but a Hollywood re-imagining of the King of the Monsters. Not so much a revamp but Hollywood doing their own thing. They all say that the 2014 movie was more faithful. But faithful does not mean better. I’ve watched the 2014 Godzilla movie a few times. But frankly I don’t enjoy it. It’s slow, plodding, tiresome and does not have NEARLY ENOUGH Godzilla in it. What pissed me off the most was the human characters I didn’t care… [Continue Reading]

Mods for Almost Everything

It’s amazing how many mods there in Warframe. Mods for your weapons, mods for your Sentinels, mods for your cats, dogs and infested monsters, mods for your Warframes themselves, mods for your Archwings and mods for your Archwing weapons. With the Sacrifice, we got the ability to mod Exalted Weapons, the weapons created from Warframe abilities (named after Excaliur’s Exalted Blade ability). There’s only three things that you can’t shove a mod into: your Space Kid, your Space Kid’s arm cannon and your ship. Chances are, at some point, you’ll be able to shove mods into them too. It actually… [Continue Reading]
