What the Hell is up with Pokemon Go Battle Recommendations?

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with the recommendations Pokemon Go gives you when you fight things? Unless you have almost no Pokemon or are brand new and don’t know better, going with recommended options is always a bad idea.

So, following on from my other articles, here are yet more tips for Warframe sorties. Get Tanky Enemies in sorties tend to do more… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon Go Tips for Twonks

It’s fine, being a newbie. Everyone was a newbie once. Most people grow out of it as they learn and get better. Some people *cough* like me *cough* could use a little extra help. So here’s a bunch of random tips that I’ve picked up since I started playing back in August. Use The Whole Screen Don’t be an idiot like me. You can use the whole screen to throw a Pokeball.

There’s not been much for me to do lately in Warframe. While I wait for the next fairly large update, while I wait for Chroma Prime to finish baking in my foundry and while I awkwardly level up a bunch of Dual Swords that I don’t like, I find myself drifting between tasks. Normally I’d be spending my time doing Fissure missions, opening relics and hoping for something nice, but in my bid to get the latest Prime items, I’ve worn myself out. The same can be said for my normal money runs on Seimeni and the Index, and Sorties… [Continue Reading]
