Random Tips for Plague Star – the new Operation

Fancy a chance at getting the new Hunter series of set mods, that work on companions? Fancy a chance to get the Snipetron? How about the Ether Daggers which you probably sold after doing that New Strange quest then realised that you needed them for mastery rank? Fancy walking across the entirety of the Plains in order for the same rewards to be repeated over and over? If any of those appeal to you, then the new Operation: Plague Star is for you! So a massive infested meteor has crashed in the Plains of Eidolon and now it’s spitting infested… [Continue Reading]

Tips on doing Warframe Sorties

For ages I held off on doing Sorties. Part of it was because, back before the War Within came out, I wasn’t a particularly good player and most of my weapons and frames were lacking in forma and Orokin reactors and catalysts. Then the War Within came out and locked Sorties away from me, meaning I couldn’t do them until I finished that infernal quest. Still, almost everything else in the solar system is under level 50, so the idea of sorties always seemed scary to me, especially when the chances of good loot weren’t that great. Now I’m finally… [Continue Reading]

What The Fuck Do You Do? A Quick Plains of Eidolon Explanation

In true Warframe style, the Plains of Eidolon are as confusing as anything else in Warframe. Nothing is explained. You just have to guess. Well, not any more. Here’s a crappy, brief explanation of, well, the basics. Since no one tells you. Getting to the Plains You have to go to Cetus to go to the Plains for the first time. You’ll land near the big Orokin tower and have to walk through the market towards a massive Orokin door. The door will open and once you step through and go a certain distance, the door shuts, you get a… [Continue Reading]

A Little To-Do List before visiting the Plains of Eidolon

“I’m very excited now. The anticipation. Ooh. I always learn so much… from a live dissection.” – Tyl Regor The smooth-voiced Grineer scientist’s thoughts have been echoing around the Warframe community ever since the Plains of Eidolon was announced. And yes, there will probably be a lot of dissecting (well, vivisecting, to use the proper term) going on as everyone uncovers secrets and stuff. Now, with a deadline so close, everyone’s so excited and that excitement is hard to contain. Of course, there’s going to be tons of players, old and new, all rushing around Earth, but not all of… [Continue Reading]

New and Improved Tips for New Warframe Players

Just under a year ago, I wrote this article about Warframe tips for new players. At the time, I was a newbie, being carried around the star chart by much more skilled players. Now though, I’m a much better player and I actually somewhat know what I’m doing. At the very least, I can give a better idea of what you should be doing. After all, older players have helped me. I should pass the baton and help newer players. Help them with some better tips. Early Choices I used to recommend choosing whatever you want as your starter character,… [Continue Reading]

How to Git Gud at Lucioball

The Summer Games are here, and with them Blizzard has brought back the best seasonal game mode Overwatch has ever had: Lucioball! A hybrid of Rocket League and Jet Set Radio, Lucioball takes my favorite character in Overwatch and builds an entire sport around him, and I cannot possibly be having more fun. I managed to place into high Diamond in the new competitive Copa Lucioball, and here are some tips for bringing your game to the next level: 1. Set yourself up for the cross. This is the single most important tip in this guide. When the ball is on… [Continue Reading]

The Nexus Challenge: To Play or Not to Play

Week 3 of the second Nexus Challenge is in full swing, so if you were playing exclusively to score the sweet new DVa skin, now is the time to decide if you’re going to cut and run or keep grinding those games to get ten Overwatch loot boxes next week. An easy enough question for MOBA fans who enjoy the Heroes of the Storm gameplay, but personally I haven’t found it really singing to me, mostly because I have no appetite for MOBAs. This article is for people like me who want to make the HotS experience as manageable as possible. First… [Continue Reading]

Farming for Credits

Even space ninjas need money. Okay, they’re not using their money to buy groceries and things like that. They’re most likely throwing it away buying and leveling up weapons they don’t really need in order to reach their next mastery rank, but still. They use money. They need it. Vast amounts of it. I mean, come on, a single forma costs like 20k credits to build. But where can a space ninja get all this money? Most normal missions only reward up to about 7k credits at a time, and unless you’re a Nekros with Desecrate and a Secura Lecta,… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch, a few tips to new players

This article, as the title implies is going to be more of a guide than an article. If you feel like you already know how to play Overwatch really well than you may not need to read this. 1. Bastion (or whoever) is not overpowered. This is something I feel new players in Overwatch complain about for the same reason TF2 players complain about things like Phlog Pyros. Bastion for example is really good against uncoordinated, disorganized and generally newbie teams but is bad against experienced players. Mei is a total bitch and Roadhog’s hook is awful. But sometimes there… [Continue Reading]

Tips for Beating Left 4 Dead 2 and Payday the Heist on the Hardest Difficulty

This article is a combination of two similar posts I made in the Left 4 Dead 2 and Payday subreddits. Both threads were basically the author asking for advice on beating every map in the game and rating them easy to hard. To add some color I also included random screenshots from my Steam folders. Dead Center: Pretty easy. The maps are very controllable and bright and lots of corridors to control the oncoming infected. Solo is a nightmare because bots don’t grab cans for the finale. The Passing : Harder than Dead Center, mostly because each map is really… [Continue Reading]
