‘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]

Interaction Design and the User Experience

Don’t mind me. Just summarizing what I’ve been learning lately. But I feel a LOT of this could be applied to gaming, so maybe it might interest you as well. Interaction design focuses on how people use and work with devices and other products, such as computers and smartphones, but also how they work with interfaces in general, such as that of smart watches and ATMs, anything with an interface. The context of interaction design is on users, activities and environments, with users focusing on physical, sensory and cognitive capabilities, while environments include not just location, but also the setting,… [Continue Reading]

That Slow Feeling of Being Burnt Out

It was bound to happen eventually. I’ve been playing Warframe for a long time, coming up to about two years now. And now, after hitting Mastery Rank 23, I’m starting to get burnt out. I’m running out of things to do, and a string of bad luck when it comes to acquiring the new stuff is making me kinda tired. Okay, yes, I got an Arcane Energize yesterday, but I’ve gone though twenty Neo B4 relics trying to get a Kronen Prime handle and eventually it all starts wearing you down. Let’s be fair though. Warframe has done an amazing… [Continue Reading]

How the Justice League Movie COULD Have Been Great.

Whether you’re a Marvel fan or a DC fan, I think we can all agree that the Justice League movie wasn’t that great. It wasn’t the worst thing on the planet, it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t amazing either. Something was off about the whole movie. But luckily, there’s a three step guide that the people behind DC movies can follow to make sure that their movies can turn out better. Because competition is good and I’d love for DC movies to be as good and popular as Marvel movies. Thing the First: Get a Better Villain There’s a lot… [Continue Reading]

A Brain Full of Game Stuff

Some people have memories like sponges, they absorb everything. Some people have memories like buckets with holes in the bottom, so they forget everything. My memory is like a DIY water filter, filtering whatever passes through it, the water coming out the bottom pure and only the nasty, useless shit remaining. Simply put, I remember useless stuff but not important stuff. My brain is FULL of video game shit but I’m bad at remembering useful stuff. But video game stuff varies a lot. At my highest point, when SPUF was going full steam and I was a super awesome Medic… [Continue Reading]

Playing On Easy Difficulty

I like playing on Easy Difficulty. There, I said it. I like easy mode. It’s fun. It’s relaxing. No, I’m not a coward. No, I shouldn’t be mocked for it. There’s nothing wrong with playing any difficulty if a game gives you difficulty options. But WHY do I like playing on easy mode? Well, I’m about to tell you. A lot of my gaming is to do with stress levels. I work and I study and at the end of the day, I’m generally pretty tired, especially these days now that I sleep a lot worse than I used to.… [Continue Reading]

The Annoyance of Corrosive Projection

What’s the best aura for any Warframe? Corrosive Projection. No other aura, not the energy regeneration of Energy Siphon, not the extra slots and damage from Steel Charge, not Growing Power, nothing. Nothing beats Corrosive Projection. Why? Because armor is a bitch, and one person using the Corrosive Projection augment removes 24% of armour. The more armor you have, the more damage resistance you have. That’s great if you’re a Warframe, you can make your health last much longer and you don’t die so easily. But when it comes to enemies? Well, that armor scales with an enemy’s level. And… [Continue Reading]

Destiny 2 – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Years after the TF2 blog stopped being constantly updated, I decided to personally consider “The Daily SPUF” as my new official TF2 blog. However, it wasn’t long until the lack of content in TF2 made The Daily SPUF writers to place other games in the spotlight. I personally wouldn’t have gotten myself addicted to Warframe otherwise. Almost half a year ago when I first started writing this article, I was extremely excited about Destiny 2 coming to PC, even though I didn’t have a clue on how exactly should I approach new players. My initial aim was to introduce and… [Continue Reading]

Avoid Sanctuary Onslaught for now…

Sanctuary Onslaught is a mess right now. The game mode that was supposed to be a horde mode where you kill literally everything simply isn’t working. It’s filled with bugs and all sorts, and the seven hotfixes we’ve seen since the game mode was released don’t seem to be making things any better. The bugs are pretty harsh. Host migrations will destroy all of your rewards, booting you back to your ship with no rewards at all or worse leaving you trapped on a loading screen for eternity with no way out aside from quitting the game. Issues with efficiency… [Continue Reading]

Cetus Wisps are Cunts

Cetus Wisps. I hate them. I hate the little floating fuckers. They’re small and annoying and they seem to be required for fucking everything on the Plains of Eidolon. Most loot in the game is somewhat easy to farm, or at least is there to be found, and doesn’t play tricks on you or anything. How do you farm Cetus Wisps? You run around the Plains of Eidolon, following the edges of specific ponds and lakes, hoping that they spawn. They’ll appear as an icon on your minimap if you have Loot Detector, Animal Instinct or Thief’s Wit. They are… [Continue Reading]
