The Day We Missed

Today is the 19th of September 2017. On the 19th of September 2013, we missed a day. aabicus dutifully explained why in his article on the 20th, informing the few readers that we had that the Daily SPUF was moving to blog.spuf.info, the Daily SPUF website that exploded then miraculously came back to life. The site we had before we ended up here on SPUF.org. I don’t think aabicus thought we would still be going in 2017. I should point out that this is four years later, and we’re still pumping out articles and we’re slowly making our way to… [Continue Reading]

Type:Rider

Ever felt like becoming a colon and travelling back in time to discover the origins of the written word and the future of typography? Of course you haven’t, because that would be insane. But if you’ve ever wanted to accomplish such a feat while also being in the guise of a platformer, then boy, do I have an oddly specific game for you… You should probably see a therapist. All the levels are based on fonts that were famous during their respective time period. You roll, jump and rotate around levels constructed out of individual letters, grabbing the letters of… [Continue Reading]

SMITE Kart – Racy Rumbly

Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the 3rd-person, action-focused MOBA SMITE is: “My, I sure wish we had a horrible Mario Kart rip-off shoved into it…”. Oh, it ISN’T? Hmm… Seems Hi-Rez thought so at least. “Apollo’s Racer Rumble” is the newest event in the “Adventures” game mode in SMITE. Bluntly put, a never seen mode (in SMITE) is added and sticks around for a month with rewards for those who buy the pass but you can play for free if you’re not bothered about them. Perplexingly, the event is named after the god… [Continue Reading]

Not Really Second Life

Second Life is an ancient thing. I remember seeing adverts for it when I first joined the internet on my own in 2007, advertising that you can live out your fantasies because it’s your second life, completely separate from your first (i.e. real) life. Turns out, it was created all the way back in 2003, and it still has one million active users. Where those active users are, I have no idea. I know that aabicus is not an active member, he only really went there for educational reasons, and will one day write an epic article about his adventures.… [Continue Reading]

The Second Dream

So I recently completed a certain quest in Warframe. The Second Dream. It’s an unusual quest and the latest in the Warframe story, which is insane to say the least. Then again, it’s to be expected. This is a game with space ninjas and guns and stuff. A note, this article contains spoilers on the Second Dream quest, so proceed with caution. Quests in Warframe are kinda weird though, they’re almost like optional side missions. Unlike the normal day to day activity, you just get quests by, well, uh, doing stuff. Apart from the first quest, which is partially a… [Continue Reading]

Trade Restrictions

I recently got a new debit card. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence, everyone’s debit and credit cards expire every two to three years, so they need to be replaced. Like Paypal, I’ll have to re-verify my card. Having online banking makes sorting out Paypal easy (although you couldn’t tell, considering some of my clients!) and that’s sorted out nice and fast. Steam is a bit slower. Since it doesn’t have a card verification system like Paypal, you have to wait a couple of days to be able to trade. I can somewhat understand this, it’s a new payment method, something… [Continue Reading]
