I finally have this mummy themed warframe out of the cooker and he’s pretty fun so far. To get more out of him I guess I need to work on getting a one handed dagger so that I can use Covert Lethality. Though that’ll be grand for Ivara too so no sense in NOT having that. Apparently it’s only works in single daggers, of which I currently have none and of course have to build.
As if building things is a problem for a crafting nut like me!
I’ll probably have him done soon and I’ll probably play him here and there as he has some pretty fun skills that I actually like so far. I also need to finish leveling Zephyr Prime and hopefully Titania will be out of the foundry before the weekend.
I may or may not have a small problem collecting Warframes.
Well really the problem is that they’re all so fun to play. It’s hard to choose which one I like the best, though I will openly admit that I enjoy some of them a LOT more than others. I also like that Warframe doesn’t punish me for leveling up new frames and since I gain mastery by leveling up new warframes and weapons, trying out new things is actually a bonus.
That and I really enjoy trying out new weapons since they have some REALLY unique weapons in Warframe. While at first it can be a bit of a draw back that Warframe is just so different from most MMO’s out there that it can really throw you off. If you stick with it though, it really is worth the time it takes to step outside the norm and wade into Warframe.
I’ve enjoyed this play through since I’ve taken my time. Experimented with weapons, and I’ve done a LOT of reading on the wiki. Which can help quite a bit.
Not that I would have imagined myself saying that about a year ago I can tell you that much. When I first tried it I had no idea what was going on, what did what, what I even WAS in the game! But then I learned how to fish, and from there the rest is history.
Hey any game that gives me a good reason to fish as a great game in my book.
Though I’m not all crazy fisher in the game since I still need to farm for some of the awesome mods I want and wait for Baro to actually sell the really awesome mods I want. In the meantime though, it’s back to missions. It can be a bit repetitive, but when you’re using new warframes all the time it doesn’t really get old.
Though what is getting old is that after a patch landed yesterday my Battacor keeps firing on other people’s screen for some weird reason. That’s pretty annoying. I’ll have to figure out jut how I bugged my Battacor later.
I actually still have quite a bit to do in Warframe since I have a few years worth of content to catch up on. I have bits of story to do, a lot of warframes to farm, and a bunch of upgrading to do. While it can be pretty grindy I feel like I’m moving at a pretty solid pace which is odd for an MMO especially a grindy one.
Though these days to me it feels like the quest oriented theme park games are almost more grindy than the just go out and kill stuff games. Possibly because of all the waiting and time spent running around.
Even though I am oddly obsessed with Warframe, as I tend to do when I find a shiny, it is a game that has enough depth to it and enough content variety to keep me busy. Something that it’s taken Warframe a few years to build up and something that a lot of MMO’s never figured out how to master even over time.
I’m also a lot more willing to log in since Warframe doesn’t charge a monthly fee or have any premium subscription packages. I can access all of my stuff whenever I want and honestly I feel more generous to games that let me spend when and how I want as opposed to holding things over my head like inventory space, access to my own characters and level limitations.
I’m glad that GW2 proved that MMO’s could make money using their current free to play model and hopefully they’ll continue on that trend now that they’ve added the Nintendo Switch to the number of ways you can access and play Warframe. The use of a tradeable cash shop currency probably has a lot to do with how they’re able to have an in game credit system used for in game stuff.
I could probably write a series on how virtual currencies actually give people more incentive to play games than less, but that’d be for another day. Until next time, remember your F-budget and don’t forget to have some fun out there.
