Warframe infiltrates the Xbox One

Warframe

Hi, my name is Martha Cabbage, and I’m a hopeless Warframe addict! I’ve been playing the game for a few months now, and It still surprises me that not many people seem to know about it. When attempting to enlighten friends of mine, I always ask the same two questions. Do you like space? Do you like ninjas? If you answered yes to both of these, then you may want to try Warframe out, because SPACE NINJAS!

While the game has not officially been launched (it’s still in beta), it has been playable on PC and PS4 for quite some time now. Planning on getting the Xbox One? The game has just been released for the new gen Microsoft console.

Just to bring you up to speed, a Warframe is the exoskeleton/suit your character wears which aids them in all the combat they do. Like what you eyeballs see? You can do just about everything seen in the trailer. Shooting, slicing, flipping, wall running, and not to mention all the abilities the various Warframes have. There are also dozens of weapons to play with, and even more mods which can be used to buff them.

I’m not even kidding though… anybody who plays the game describes it simply as ‘Space Ninjas’. It is a little more than that. You take the role of a Tenno, an ancient being who has been in a deep slumber spanning several centuries. Space is not the friendly place it once was. The Tenno have to deal with several factions who are out to wreak all sorts of havoc. Missions take place over several planets, all with their own unique look and feel.

Read  StarCraft 2 is going free to play on November 14

The game is entirely free to play, with the option of spending money on various items if you wish to speed up the process. I’ve sunk in dozens of hours, and I can confidently say that while farming some items may be time consuming, it is a lot of fun. There is nothing on the market that you can’t acquire in game somehow. I’ve spent $20 over the past few months, and I have zero regrets. The developers have given me many hours of ninja goodness!

At least those looking to adopt the Xbox One will have something to look forward to if they can’t afford a bunch of games on launch. Warframe is highly awesome, highly addictive. Play it at your own risk!

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

    Please go back to the old website format / layout, this is just all over the show!

    • Sageville

      This!

  • Hammersteyn

    Yay , now they can also wait for days on end while that gun you spent hours looting parts for finishes crafting. Or you know… use micro-transactions. Except for that I recommend it. It really is fun.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Only another 2.5 days until my Oberon is ready. :/

  • Kromas of City17

    Combining two likes don’t always work out. I like naked women and I also like calamari but I have not really taken a liking to naked women being violated by squid.

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      shame, why you gotta be so rough on hentai? you know you’re making Umar sad….

      • #staystrongUmar

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          #StayHardUmar *fixed

      • Kromas of City17

        Well maybe if hentai had a decent story … scratch that. I am one of the few people who can’t even watch that HBO porno with a story. Yeah I am looking at you Game of Thrones.

        • Kensei Seraph

          *Cough*
          I’ve actually played a hentai game with a good story and good gameplay, although I didn’t realize it was a hentai game until the “kissing” started (I did suspect when I got a choice between the 3 heroines but still thought it would just end up being a VN).
          I actually haven’t played it since.

          • *Confessions of an addict?

          • Kensei Seraph

            I’m not addicted to gaming.
            I can stop whenever I want.
            I’m not playing any games right now…
            Mostly because people can see my screen and I haven’t got an updated version of FTL installed…
            But I could still choose not to play if I wanted to.

          • heheheh 😉 I am sure the @Admiral_Chief:disqus wouldn’t be able to say that about FTL 🙂

          • Kensei Seraph

            Well it’s that or ToME but the ToME servers are blocked at work so I can’t access most of my saves.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            I actually managed to kick both my PS2 and FTL addictions!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Replacing them with Borderlands doesn’t really count as kicking an addiction.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            I’m just playing BL2 to get it off the backlog tbh

        • Her Highness the Hipster

          same – i haven’t watched GoT either, but at least i read the books… 15 years ago.

          • Spaffy

            And here I thought you were only 18

          • Her Highness the Hipster

            i learned to read really young. also, i <3 you

          • Spaffy

            *blush 😛

          • Kensei Seraph

            If I read LotR at 8 I’m sure Zoe could read GoT at 3.

          • Kromas of City17

            Same … my favorite author at 8 was Wilber Smith.

          • Sageville

            Pfft!

            I read War and Peace while still in moms womb!

            I win!

          • Sageville

            LIES!

            When was the last book released?

          • Lord Chaos

            The last book of the series? Probably in about 10 years.

          • Weanerdog

            This

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            So you read the first book only? 😉 I’ll start reading the books once he writes the last one. I got caught by Robert Jordan.

            I started watching the series last weekend, I’m quite enjoying it – although yes the boobs and associated parts can get a bit gratuitous at times.

          • Her Highness the Hipster

            I read the first 3 books, then got tired of the uncertain release schedule and gave up on the series.

            don’t remind me of the trauma that was The Wheel of Time…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I know, I still haven’t gone back to finish it. Right now I’m slowly working my way through The Malazan series, book 8 of 10!

    • So, you aren’t Umar then? *RUNS

    • hairyknees

      But… SPACE + NINJAS = SPACE NINJAS?? :'(

      • Lord Chaos

        They also thought Cowboys vs Aliens would be good. #JustSaying

        • Kromas of City17

          OH Snap girlfriend!

        • hairyknees

          #PointProven

          You heartless bastard :'(

    • Weanerdog

      To google or not to google that is the question.

  • Kensei Seraph

    The only thing I purchased was a Hunter Founders Pack to show my support for the game (of course the extras that came with it helped me with that decision).

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Yes, I bought the starter pack during the last xmas sale.

  • CAE9872

    Warframe is a brilliant game! And like young Martha says how the hell not more people know about it is beyond me. Developers are always updating the game, adding new content, new trophies, etc. It has just undergone a massive facelift, which as a veteran takes getting use to but newbies would probably love it.

    I have happily paid over the equivalent of a new game in in-game stuff – having spent 60 hours with it now I can hardly begrudge the developers their fair dues.

    • hairyknees

      PREACH IT SISTA! 😛

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Did you play the last event? That Latron Wraith rifle is niiiiiiiiice.

      • CAE9872

        Haven’t played it in a couple of weeks except to go and see the changes they made in the new update. There is some cool weaponry in the game. I spend a good time agonising over which mods to take on board to maximise the weapons efficiency.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          It was a lot of fun, you’ve still got time if you want to give it a go because it ends on the 4th. First reward is an event badge, then 4 ice-based dual-power mods, then the latron wraith & a custom skin for some other weapon.

          They’re called excavation missions, fairly similar to mobile defense missions – you have to find a scanner on some pretty big levels, once that thing is found it scans for an excavation site, once it finds one you head off to there & deploy an excavator which you have to defend & keep powered up & collect a new resource – and you keep them powered up by killing certain enemies who have power packs. Rinse & repeat until the enemies are too high powered for you to handle.

          • CAE9872

            I might try this then. My Rhino could do with more weapons!

  • Sageville

    Should I be playing this game?

    I tried it when the PS4 came out, it seemed cool though I felt the controls were a bit clunky.

    • CAE9872

      YES…see my post below. It is a little clunky I agree, but it is great fun once you know what you doing. Hook me up on PS4 and perhaps we can play together.

      And plan ahead – you are probably many, many updates behind so could take a while to download everything.

      • Sageville

        Luckily I’ve been keeping it up-to-date….. didn’t even know it had a crafting system…. I’ll run it tonight with new eyes

        • CAE9872

          Yip and interesting card-based mod system which is addictive as hell. Other advice is you want to get into it is try the wiki site – game itself is USELESS at explaining anything.

          My PSN ID by the way is CAE9872 – send me friend invite.

          • Sageville

            Kewlies, thanks for the info

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            JOIN MA CLAN!!! (CAE9872 can invite you)

          • Sageville

            I played warframe the whole of last night.

            It’s pretty awesome, reminds me a lot of Destiny weirdly enough. There is a huge difference between the first PS4 release and the current iteration. They have made a lot of improvements around the UI and “Codex” / Help system. I replayed the prologue, which now actually makes sense and introduces the Ship and components such as the foundry.

            I am most impressed…. though unnerved at how similar it is to Destiny…

  • CAE9872

    Oh and PS – EVERYONE should play this!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I’m not having ANY fun trying to get a Kubrow egg. I’ve destroyed around 50 dens already.

    • CAE9872

      Have you looked at the Wiki – I am sure there is some or other trick to it. You playing on PC right?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Yes & yes. Apparently I’m one of those lucky people who end up getting nav points instead of eggs lol.

        • hairyknees

          I haven’t even tried farming one yet… I do have a friend who has like 3 of em though 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            SHUT UP! 🙁

            I’ve been playing that silly mission once every day for the last 2 weeks.

    • nick

      likewise, i do this at least once a day and havent gotten anything on the ps4 version. my one gripe with this game is how expensive the platinum is

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I know right? I refuse to buy an egg with platinum too, I’m suffering for my principles heh.

  • Tried this game when it started, never liked it sorry

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Warframe is all sorts of awesome, and the latest updates on both the PC and PS4 makes it even more amazing. I’m glad that the boners can also enjoy it on their VCRs. Good one lads! #highFive

  • This looks awesome. How did I miss hearing about this one?!
