I Hate Twitch but the Warframe loot is so good…

I hate Twitch. While the concept of having a nice place where video game streamers can do walk throughs of new games, show off their skills and prove their worth in competitive matches, Twitch makes it all a horrible mess of a site. It’s awful. It’s predatory. And there is so much competition that the majority probably don’t even make that much money. The first time I used Twitch, it was for a CS:GO tournament that my brother wanted to watch. The chat was toxic and everything was slow and laggy and awful. I was between adblockers at the time,… [Continue Reading]

Kinda Not Really Sugar Free Lemon Yogurt Ice Cream

You need an ice cream maker for this one. “Nothing is truly sugar free” ice cream 700g Greek yogurt (10% fat is nicest but 5% fat works too) 1 large lemon 1 lime 1/2 cup sweetener – what you’d normally use to sweeten tea or coffee. Zest the lemon and the lime, then juice them both. Mix the lemon and lime juice in with the yogurt and mix well. Add the sweetener and continue to mix. Throw in the zest, keep on mixing, then pour into your ice cream maker. It is worth tasting the mixture before making it into… [Continue Reading]

Lycanthropy and Vampirism in Skyrim

What is it with wet-dog-smelling people who hate the moon and blood-drinking albino people scared of sunlight? I swear, vampirism and lycanthropy are all the rage, always have been, and will probably continue to be amusing people for decades to come. As for me? I’m really not fussed, since both are always shitty conditions to have and there’s always some stupid downside to plague you. Screw immortality, I like going outside on a sunny day, then looking at the moon at night. Skyrim is no stranger to these two curses. The only problem is that they’re both pretty shit. That’s… [Continue Reading]

PowerPoint Presentation Loki

I like writing articles about individual Warframes. Each one has got their own character about them. Volt is a derpy thing with square knees that throws lightning, Frost is a chill dude in a coat and Trinity is boring as fuck. Loki in particular is a nice character, boasting invisibility and speed, but being about as strong as wet toilet paper. But sometimes there’s a bit of overlap between characters. There has to be eventually, there are only so many ideas out there. But I didn’t think that such a large overlap existed already. Let’s talk about Ash. Ash is… [Continue Reading]

Magical Sword-Wielding Maniac Space Ninja Poster Children

In my earliest Warframe ramblings, I always mentioned that I was never a fan of Excalibur, the poster child of Warframe. He just seemed too loved by everyone else, and in my nonsensical ways, I tend to dislike things that are loved by everyone else. Plus, being a newbie, I found myself playing with a lot of Excaliburs, while my little Volt would just trail behind them. They were everywhere, with their weird, overly basic looks and their complete lack of eyes. My discontent for Excalibur continued until I decided one day to go and fight Ambulas, the boss on… [Continue Reading]

INSTANT CAKE MIX IS CHEATING

I’m in a bad mood. I’ve been looking up easy home-made cake recipes. I have been cheated. Half the recipes I have found have been instant cake mix plus the standard ingredients you need to make said instant cake mix. This is not baking. This is cheating. Now, I’m not saying that instant cake mix is evil and should be banned. Instant cake mix is a lazy, silly thing to have, considering that a cake 99% of the time is flour, sugar, eggs and a fat of some sort. Plus some baking powder. So spending money on a ready-made mixture… [Continue Reading]

On Rochelle

It’s unusual to write an article on Left 4 Dead 2, when aabicus is so clearly better at the game than I am. And with only 30 hours (apparently) on the game, I look like a bit of a noob, even though as many as seven years ago, I was being dragged around Advanced coop campaigns and the only one I never managed to beat (and actually played) was Hard Rain, because that is genuinely a grueling campaign. That being said, I also know quite a bit of the ins and outs of the game, and I’ve always liked how… [Continue Reading]

The Cities of Skyrim

In my eternal struggle to find games that grab me, I find myself playing Skyrim and wandering around in its frozen wastelands, large forests, mammoth-filled plains, more frozen wastelands and a few other nice territories scattered around the place. I’ve gone and talked about the hellhole that is Markarth, but I’ve never got around to really talking about the other major cities. So let’s do that! We start off with Whiterun and its small village Riverwood. This is your first point of safety in the game after escaping Helgen and the scary black dragon. It’s a nice place mostly, with… [Continue Reading]

The Six Hundred and Seventieth Article

Out of all the numbers out there, I really like the number 70. I’ve never really understood why. It’s just a neat number. Not really divisible by much. Not particularly interesting. But it looks nice. Clean almost. Why am I talking about the number 70? Because I missed my 666th article due to A Week of Love and Hate 3, and I didn’t want to wait until my 700th article, even though it’s the number 700 and 700 is way more impressive than 70. But still, here I am, publishing my 670th article. Complete with images that have nothing to… [Continue Reading]

Doing Most of the Things in Team Fortress 2

The other day, I thought to myself that I should probably play Team Fortress 2. After all, it’s the game that properly got me into PC gaming and it’s a big part of my online presence. I owe a lot to Team Fortress 2 and maybe I should take a break and play it for a while. See what I’ve missed. But as I loaded up TF2, I realised that I hadn’t really missed anything. The last time I played was during Scream Fortress 8. I made myself a lot of fake internet points on Reddit by making fun of… [Continue Reading]
