Beginner Tips For Warframe

As you probably know, I am a huge fan of the game Warframe. From its gameplay to its community to its unbelievable support from the developer (weekly updates… what other game is doing that?), in my mind it stands in a class all its own. If there is one knock against the game, it is probably its rather steep learning curve for new players. It can feel a bit overwhelming when you first start. Here are a few tips that can help ease you into the game. Excalibur When you begin the game, you are going to have an option of 1 of 3 Warframes to start with, Excalibur, Mag, and Volt. This is your starter frame. Just to be clear, every frame in the [...]

Dominating Countdown in Destiny 2

We are on to week 3 of Destiny 2, and so far minus the issue of only having 2 playlists to choose from, I am loving PvP in this game. It really has been a lot of fun. Last week the Trials of the Nine featured the Countdown game type. We know this week it will be Survival, but Countdown will come up again. Plus, it is always a part of the competitive playlist. I wanted to pass along a few tips that my friends and I are using to really crush it at Countdown (we went flawless in Trials). First, for those not familiar with Countdown, it is your typical one side plant the bomb while the other side defends the bomb sites game [...]

Warframe – The Best Game You Have Probably Never Played

Recently, the free-to-play 3rd person shooter and looter, Warframe, has garnered some additional attention from gamers. A popular YouTube content creator, Skill Up, stumbled across the game and fell in love with it. His recent videos have brought a lot of deserved attention to Warframe from players that had never tried it before. At the time of this posting, his review of Warframe has reached over 700,000 eyeballs. I myself have been playing Warframe off and on for the past 2 ½ years. I originally found it during a content lull in Destiny, not long after its launch. I was looking for something else fun to play and saw this free game in the Xbox store. I thought why not? It won’t cost me anything. [...]

Destiny 2 – Tips For Leveling Up Your Power Fast

We are almost a week into Destiny 2’s launch, and right now most players are grinding to get “raid ready” as they try to get their power level up to over level 300 before Destiny 2’s first raid drops on September 13th.

Cayde, His Chicken, And Other Destiny 2 First Impressions

After months of anticipation about Destiny 2, constant “leaks” about it, a console beta, a PC beta, and a full on media blitz about it, we finally have been able to put our hands on the full game. I have spent about 30 hours with it so far. I’m not going to write a full review of the game. That’s not what I do. I do want to give you my impressions with the game so far. First of all, I want to be clear about something. I am going to be a bit critical of some of the aspects of the game, but overall I am really having a good time with it. It has been a blast, but there are some issues with [...]

The Division – 1.8 Patch Bringing A Big Change to The Dark Zone and PvP

Massive has recently released some details about the upcoming 1.8 patch to The Division. There are 3 significant changes that you should be aware of. These changes are big enough that they may actually bring back some old players who have dropped the game, which I am pretty excited about. First, the update is going to be opening up a new area of the map, West Side Pier. This is the area where you can see the aircraft carrier, Intrepid docked. It is an aircraft carrier long out of service that was turned into a museum. We previously were able to adventure in this area once before. Some of you may remember that shortly after the launch of The Division, a way to glitch into [...]

Can We Stop Calling it Farming?

The term farming in gaming has bothered me for some time. It really is not accurate of a term if you think about it. With real life farming, there is a degree of certainty involved. I know what I’m going to get. With video game farming, there is no such guarantee. It’s time for a new term that more accurately describes what it is we really are doing. First, for the uninitiated, let’s explain what farming is. Farming is a term that goes back over 10 years in video games as far as I know. I first remember it in my World of Warcraft days. Farming refers to the process of doing something over and over again to gather resources or items in a video [...]
