Okay the April Fools Minecraft Snapshot is Awesome…

Minecraft always gets the best April Fools jokes. Normally most April Fools jokes are temporary, but Minecraft always comes up with something cool. This year, Mojang came up with 20w14Infinite, a Minecraft Snapshot that includes, well, everything. Millions of different worlds, all in one, uh, world. All made by throwing books into Nether Portals The premise is simple. You take a Book and Quill, you write some gibberish in it, you close it and sign it and throw the book into a Nether Portal. The Nether Portal will change colour and, as you step inside, you are greeted with a… [Continue Reading]

The Revision and Refreshing Update Everyone Has Been Waiting For

The 139th Devstream claimed itself to be a boring update. It only had three of the normal staff and one of the developers themselves was claiming how boring it would be. Somehow though, Devstream 139 turned out to be one of the better Devstreams so far. Why? Because it contained everything that everyone has been asking for, for years. We were given a 20-ish point list of things, an agenda of what the next mainline update will be. All of it is awesome. Bug fixes, balance changes, improved data, all sorts. It’s almost everything players have been asking for. Seriously,… [Continue Reading]

Smoothing Down the Kuva Lich Grind

February brings with it a lot of things, like everything immediately being Valentines Day related and slathered in red. Warframe is kinda doing the same thing with a small Kuva Lich update, because those Liches sure do love being awful. Or perhaps not, as there’s a bunch of changes to Kuva Liches that make them far less awful to grind for. Yep, we got a Kuva Lich 1.5 update, and the changes are all round pretty damn good. To the point that I completely glossed over the fact that Ivara Deluxe is now available. The first and most important change… [Continue Reading]

SPACESHIPS! Retvik’s First Impressions on Empyrean

I missed the initial release. I’ll admit that. It happened at like 5am when I was fast asleep, tucked up in bed and dreaming of, well, not space ninjas. But as soon as I could get to my computer (after a Windows update or two, typically), I went and installed the 2.5GB update and went to see what was going on. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?) this happened at about 3:30pm my time, meaning I’d missed a lot of the initial rush and the rest of my clan jumping in. Sooo, Empyrean. The thing that comes after Rising Tides. The ability… [Continue Reading]

A Personalized Grineer Enemy, Just For You

The Old Blood, Warframe’s newest update, came out with only an hour to go before October ended for me, so I wasted sleeping time waiting for the game to update and load, so I could jump straight into the flesh of the new update: the Kuva Lich. Kuva Liches are enemies created solely to hunt you down. They start as frankly rather out of place Grineer workers that wander around level 20+ Grineer missions, picked out by Kuva Guardians to be blessed. When a little Kuvaling spawns, you’ll see a flash and a Kuva Guardian will mention that a Grineer… [Continue Reading]

Waiiiiiit, Scream Fortress XI Happened?

Scream Fortress came a bit early this year, with very little going on with it. I didn’t make an article about it because there honestly was very little to write about, but what I DID do was make a fake update page for Scream Fortress XI (ELEVEN for those who can’t read Roman Numerals) because guess what, there wasn’t one this year. Then again, there hasn’t been a Scream Fortress update page since Scream Fortress 7, which means I’ve made a fake update page for the last 4 years. The result is a strange mess of scribbles which gets worse… [Continue Reading]

The Warframe Saint of Altra Update – First Thoughts?

I’m a little bit angry at this update. After all, it killed the blessed Fortuna 69 with its awkward timing, and that place was as saintly, probably more saintly, than this update. After all, the Saint of Altra brings with it a bunch of new things, most notably things to kill people with. Things that kill people while supposedly being vaguely saintly. There are four main things that the Saint of Altra brought with it. The first is Gauss, which I can’t tell you much about since he’s currently building in my foundry. All I know right now is that… [Continue Reading]

Role Queue is Finally Coming to Overwatch!

Rejoice! (Or doomsay, if you’re on the other side of the fence.) A special edition of the Overwatch League tie-in show Watchpoint just happened, and they’ve formally announced the worst-kept open secret in Overwatch: role queue is finally coming to our favorite Blizzard shooter. Since the early days of Overwatch, players have been able to pick whatever character they want, and the game simply trusts all 6 to pick things that contribute to the team comp as a whole. If your team wants to go 6 supports, you could. No tank? No problem! However, this has led to some problems that… [Continue Reading]

Tennocon 2019

I should point out, I wrote most of this at 3am. Because I stayed up to watch Tennolive. But Tennocon is cool. Oh so very cool. And this year, we got to watch all the shows and presentations, as they were all streamed on Twitch. That meant we got to see lots of cool stuff that was all teased as “Maybe” or “SOON.” While we’re watching the stream, people at the convention itself are doing Q&As and meeting staff and things like that. We can also buy literally everything Baro Ki’Teer has ever sold from a special Tennocon relay with… [Continue Reading]

A Thought About Mid-Star Chart Difficulty

It occurred to me the other day, while I was messing around trying to scan an Amalgram on a Gas City capture mission, that things are going to be a tad different for any newer players passing through Jupiter. When I say a ‘tad’ different, I mean completely different. Before the Jovian Concord*, Jupiter was never a hard planet but it was never easy either. Ceres and Jupiter are where the difficulty spikes for a new player. While the Grineer just seem to need more hits before dying and introduce Guardsmen who will try and block things, Jupiter’s Corpus just… [Continue Reading]
