God damn Warframe is fun

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.

  1. I’ve always enjoyed Warframe, but I’ve never fallen in love with it. This post and the recent news of more open worlds make me want to revisit it.

    1. Yeah, that was quite the unexpected reveal. I was a little worried DE would be shifting their focus to Keystone, then they go and announce the biggest ever evolution in Warframe’s gameplay. Plus Hydroid Prime! ❤
