Not Feeling the Speed – More Thoughts on Gauss

I’ve been playing Gauss, leveling him up for both mastery and the more obvious reasons of getting him to level 30, but I’ll be honest, I’ve been struggling. I’m just not feeling Gauss and his speedy ways. I find myself not really enjoying playing as Gauss. While that might not be surprising to you, it feels somewhat surprising to me. Because normally I like speedy Warframes. I mean, my favourite Warframe is Volt, the original speedy Warframe, and he’s followed by frames like Nehza, Khora and Rhino, two of whom have speed boosts and one of which has a charge… [Continue Reading]

An Adorable Mess of Mutated Infectious Tissue

Helminth Chargers are weird. They’re Kubrows but they’re not Kubrows. They are weirdly cute, infested monstrosities made by squeezing a pink and grey zit on your Warframe onto a Kubrow egg and then incubating said egg. They shouldn’t exist, but they do. But what do these weird mutant dog-like beings actually do? To be honest, I’m not sure. The two breeds of Kavats we have both have a use – one gives huge crit buffs and the other gives random buffs at entirely the wrong times. The other breeds of Kubrow all do various things, even if those various things… [Continue Reading]

On Never Streaming

I’ve always kinda wanted to stream. Whether it be streaming video games or doing art, the idea of showing what you are doing, recording your actions and people wandering in and saying hi and talking to you all sound very nice. You end up making friends and maybe even building a community. Heck, you don’t even need to have anyone watching your streams, you can just stream yourself playing games and talking to some guy in the background in Spanish, not caring that no one is actually there, doing a 30 minute survival mission with three squad mates that are… [Continue Reading]

A Really Stupid Article About Pokemon Types

This is going to sound dumb, so bear with me. There are too many Pokemon types. Like, way too many. To the point that some of them are overlapping each other. And honestly? It might be cool to see a Pokemon type shake up in the future, so I’m just gonna go with this. Really, I don’t even have a place to stand when it comes to Pokemon and Pokemon types and balancing and all that. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Go where the only real meta is “high attack and a type that’s super effective” and I had… [Continue Reading]

More on Warframe Armour Sets

I mentioned the other day how the Lodestar Armour Bundle looked really cool but annoyingly floated in mid air rather than being connected to your Warframe’s body, but frankly that article has gone and opened up a can of worms and 500 word rambles. The armour in Warframe is kinda weird and ill-fitting and quite often not armour at all. Let’s take the Avia armour set. Which amazingly has THREE variants: normal, prisma and solstice. But none of these pieces would provide actual armour, they’re just little shiny bits that hang off our arms and legs. There’s no protection to… [Continue Reading]

It’s Not Pay To Win, It’s Pay To Save Time

An article on a different gaming website has brought up the question whether Warframe is Pay to Win or not, and frankly everyone is arguing over the nuance of the question, about what ways Warframe is or is not Pay to Win. First off though, we have to define Pay to Win. The phrase generally implies that you can spend money to get an advantage over your team mates, but there are variations of this. Can you buy things in Warframe that you can’t obtain by playing that affect gameplay and give you an advantage? Not really, no, all Warframes… [Continue Reading]

On New Gyms and Pokestops

Pokestops and are the lifeblood of Pokemon Go, probably more so than the Pokemon that spawn at random around them. After all, if you don’t have Pokestops, you can’t get Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with, and gyms are both a way to earn coins and do raids. But while Niantic has been very slowly rolling out a way for level 40 Pokemon Go accounts to submit suggestions for Pokestops, what actually determines what is or isn’t a Pokestop is up to Niantic and people who play Ingress. Ingress is Niantic’s other flagship game, alongside that strange Harry Potter game they… [Continue Reading]

Behind That Other Username – A Look at Retvik

Some of you with a keen eye might have noticed that I only really use the name Medic here on the Daily SPUF. These days, I don’t play Team Fortress 2 any more and I’ve become ill-fitting of such a username as I spend more and more time doing anything but healing people in video games. On Steam and Discord, where you can have any username you want, I use the name Arkay, based on the protagonist of the Phoviverse. Old accounts made before I became known as Medic are often called Phovos. But nowadays, I’ve been using the name… [Continue Reading]

A Brand New Monkey God

I never understood why so many games have to have a Sun Wukong character. If you have a popular game with a multitude of characters to choose from and collect, there’s always some sort of monkey god. Warframe is no exception and they have not one but two Warframes that appeal to more Asian markets – Nezha and Wukong. While I’ve spoken about Nezha before, Wukong kinda sat unused in my arsenal for the longest of times, until his Primed self came out. Through an amazing stroke of luck, I managed to farm all 4 parts in 5 missions (and… [Continue Reading]

Favourite Pokemon

There’s currently 809 Pokemon currently released over all 7 existing generations and there’s probably going to be another 100 or so more when Pokemon Sword and Shield come out. While we can all agree that some Pokemon aren’t as good or as popular or as exciting as others, we all have our favourites and every Pokemon has a fan. But with sooooo many Pokemon, it’s really hard to pick a favourite. Or at least a definitive favourite. And it really depends on the person. With someone like aabicus, who wrote in length about the often ignored Rattata, your favourite ends… [Continue Reading]
