How Would Corpus Kuva Liches Even Work?

As with everything in Warframe, we always get a Grineer version of a thing first, followed by a Corpus version. This has been the case for ages. For example, we got the Plains of Eidolon, which is Grineer, then later on we got Fortuna, which is Corpus. The same will happen with Railjack and, eventually, Kuva Liches. But how would Corpus Liches even work? At first, this seems like an easy question to answer. You just have randomly generated Corpus enemies, the same way you do for Grineer Liches. The process would be similar too. You have your Parazon, you… [Continue Reading]

The Arbiters of Hexis are Sentients. Potentially. Maybe. Possibly?

Out of all the Syndicates we know nothing about, we know by far the least about the Arbiters of Hexis. While we have gained tidbits and even quests for other Syndicates over the years, the Arbiters of Hexis just sort of sit in their corner, being grumpy and justice-y. There’s almost no insight about them what so ever. So, because we have no Arbiters of Hexis lore, I have to make up my own theories as to what they are! I’ve come to the conclusion that they are Sentient spies. Or at least Sentient-related. Now, this seems like a very… [Continue Reading]

The Quantum Instability of Team Rocket Go Leaders

A few days ago, I decided to do a little bit of late night walking to clear my mind and to catch some Luvdics, because I had a research task that required me to catch them. I did a lot of walking, to the point that I ended up running into a guy who was trying to do a Team Rocket Go Leader. Cliff was being a massive pain in the ass, doing to us with his Pinsir what Arlo did to us with his Scyther and Scizor. Unfortunately, it was very late, to the point that the Team Rocket… [Continue Reading]

What Could A Mastery Rank 30 Test Even Be?

The other day I mentioned how I had reached Mastery Rank 28, almost completely by surprise. In that article, I briefly discussed I was curious what the MR29 and MR30 tests would be, but there’s a bit more to it than that. After all, a Mastery Rank test generally involves testing a specific skill and using the right tools for the job. You can do almost any test using a plain old Excalibur, using (often a well Forma’d) Braton, Lato and Skana, but as your arsenal increases, there are better ways to do tests. A handful of these tests also… [Continue Reading]

The Terrifying World of Pokemon Go

When you think about it, Pokemon Go is actually a somewhat terrifying game. Well, it’s terrifying when you think about things too hard, which is what I’ve been doing lately. The premise of Pokemon Go is simple – Pokemon are escaping the Pokemon universe and appearing in our universe. First it was affecting Kanto only, but it’s been spreading, and now Pokemon from the Hoenn, Johto and Sinnoh regions are appearing as well. They’re basically invading our universe. In the mean time, us mere humans have been fighting back in the only way we know how – by capturing and… [Continue Reading]

How Do They Eat? Early Warframe Lore Ideas

It’s been known for years that the Warframes we use to kick the asses of Corpus, Grineer and Infested weren’t always what we thought they were. They were never really just people. What they were, we didn’t know. Early lore suggested that the original Warframes were feral and terrifying, hungry, destructive monsters. Rhino Prime’s codex entry (unlocked by owning Rhino Prime and viewing him in your Codex on your ship) was one such example, noting a story from an Orokin scientist, watching as an early Rhino Warframe kills and eats his fellow scientists, only to be calmed by the presence… [Continue Reading]

An Inability to Explain Quests In A Logical Manner

I always try to justify things. Call it idiotic and dumb, but I like to think of in-world reasons as to why things are the way they are and why we can do things again and again and again. Like explaining how there can be two Medics on a team fighting against five Engineers. Or explaining how you are capable of killing Warframe bosses repeatedly. But this gets really hard to justify the deeper you go into a game. When I first started playing Warframe, I didn’t get that same old feeling I often do with video games, that I’m… [Continue Reading]

A Literal Aimbot – A Thought Experiment

No, no, I’m not talking about actual cheats. Users of those are the scum of video game communities anywhere and everywhere. This article is about computer vision and its implementation. Consider it a thought experiment. So, you guys know how VAC or any other anti-cheats detects hacks and cheats, and bans whoever decides to use a bot to shoot for them in a game? I found a loophole that should, in theory, allow me to use a bot to aim and shoot for me, while bypassing anti-cheats completely*. *depending on how the anti-cheat functions and how you implement it. That… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch’s Liao

Liao is one of the most enigmatic characters in the expanded Overwatch canon. He (or possibly she) has been there since almost the beginning, mentioned as early as May 2016 in an article that name-drops the six individuals hired by the United Nations to defend humanity during the impending Omnic Crisis. These six individuals – Soldier 76, Reaper, Torbjorn, Reinhardt, Ana, and Liao – later went on to found the entire Overwatch organization with its dedication to maintaining world peace. The thing is, beyond this single mention, there’s almost no mention of Liao in anything going forward. That’s a pretty… [Continue Reading]

A Theory on Samurai Jack

Been a while since we had a SPUF of Legend video that came with a Daily SPUF article! We were supposed to make these transcripts for every episode, or write a tie-in article that incorporates the latest episode, but we kinda never do so we’re looking for any suggestions on better ways to integrate The SPUF of Legend with the blog proper. Got any suggestions? Let us know in the comments! This week we’re doing something a little different because my recording software has been a finnicky little twit for about two weeks now, and I can’t figure out why so… [Continue Reading]
