I used to play Warframe. A lot.
But after 300+ hours of gameplay, my enthusiasm finally waned. I stopped playing sometime prior to the Specters of the Rail update, which turned the Void/Key system on its ear. There have more updates since, but I haven’t been following the game’s evolution.
A few days ago, my good friend @the3rdwalker told me about the Free Prime with Prime promotion. Say what!!?!?
Yeah, I jumped all over that shit. And there I stood, Frost Prime, in my trusty orbiter, just as I left her, Clem noggle and all. A Kubrow egg ready to hatch. The dulcit tones of Ordis’ voice chirping away. Grineer ramblings on the scanner. Ahh, home again. Then I pulled up the Star Chart. =/
It all went downhill from there.
I don’t mean downhill as in bad, but downhill as in progressively more bewildering. I got these relics I’m supposed to do something with, junctions to unlock, bizarre drops I’ve never heard of, other drops I don’t know how to interact with. Sheesh. It was hard enough figuring out this game the first time.
That said, I was soon grinning from ear to ear: bullet jumping, slide spinning, and unloading the mighty Telos Boltor on hapless Grineer.
