Thoughts on the Call of the Tempestarii Quest

The Call of the Tempestarii is a relatively short quest, tied to a new Warframe. It’s a very simple quest with nothing really challenging in it. This is also the name of Update 30, which is bringing along some other bits and pieces. Things like Void Storms, and hints at Corpus Liches. However, those need some… time to be digested, and for the bugs to be ironed out. So, today, I’m just gonna talk about the quest. I would have made a walk-through, but frankly, the quest is really simple. I’ve played it twice and, sadly, in both my recordings,… [Continue Reading]

These New Corpus Railjack Missions Feel Rather Weird…

With Corpus Railjack, we got a bunch of new Railjack missions. Unfortunately, these aren’t just Railjack missions. They’re part Railjack, part normal Warframe. Weirdly, these are curious combination of the two. There’s definitely some good and bad things about them. In fact, I’ve already talked about the defense mission before. But I feel like we kinda need to talk about all of these. It’s definitely not all negative. Just… confusing. These missions do kinda feel like taxi rides. Every new Corpus Railjack mission works in pretty much the same way. You destroy something to get access to the Corpus ship… [Continue Reading]

Railjack Corpus Ship Defense is just the Worst

There’s a lot to go through in the Railjack Retrofitted update, but something is bothering me. Sure, a lot of Corpus Railjack is half Railjack, half normal mission. I can kinda put up with that a little. However, there is one thing that is really irking me, and it’s defense missions. The problem is Railjack Defense. It’s just so bad. It’s normal Corpus defense but worse. Okay, first off, I need to explain why Corpus Ship Defense is bad. I’ve actually discussed Corpus Defense in the past, mostly with the death of Io. That one single defense mission on Jupiter… [Continue Reading]

How Cheap is an Oxium Osprey to Make?

The Oxium Osprey is a curious little robot. Most Corpus robotics will simply shoot at invading Tenno. However, the Oxium Osprey has a different choice of combat. While it does have a small laser turret, Oxium Ospreys stop using them as soon as they take damage to their shields. Once damaged, an Oxium Osprey will charge at you and then explode, killing itself in the process. If you kill the Oxium Osprey before it explodes, you can take its Oxium for yourself. If it self-destructs manually, the Oxium disappears. What is Oxium though? Oxium is a lighter-than-air alloy. It’s a… [Continue Reading]

I Miss Old Io

Io was always one of my favourite defense maps. Most people tended to flock to Hydron or Selene for their experience gains, but Io was always the cooler map. I say ‘was’, since Io is now a completely different location. One that isn’t nearly as cool or anything. Thanks to the large Jupiter update, one of my favourite maps is no more. “But Medic, the Jupiter update was ages ago!” You’re completely right. In fact, most Corpus tile sets aside from Europa and the ground icy missions have been upgraded. But it’s taken a while to sink in just how… [Continue Reading]

The New Corpus Ship Tileset

The biggest part of the Deadlock Protocol update was a complete remodeling of the Corpus ship tileset. Corpus ships are the oldest maps in the game, to the point that literally every mission was originally on a Corpus ship. Even Grineer missions. Clearly, something so obviously old needed a do-over. So the Corpus tileset was remastered completely and utterly, while also providing more of a look into Corpus lore. And, of course, being a new, shiny thing, I have a lot of comments about it. Speaking of which, it’s all very shiny. Almost… too shiny. Very, very grandiose. These ships… [Continue Reading]

The New Jackal Boss Fight Is Boring

As part of the Corpus remaster, we got an unexpected boss rework. While you’d expect that the Sergeant, bless his heart, would be the target, you’d be wrong. In fact, our boss remaster goes to the Jackal. The Jackal was always a simple boss fight. It consisted of shooting the Jackal and not getting blown up by rockets. Since it was the first boss fight in the game after Captain Vor, it was worth redoing, right? Eh, I dunno. The new fight is just as simple. Okay, so, after a fancy cinematic in which a small MOA needlessly dies, you’re… [Continue Reading]

The Deadlock Protocol Quest Is Pretty Fun

We haven’t had a decent Warframe quest in ages. The last ones we got were for Revenant and Excalibur Umbra, but they weren’t exactly… amazing, fun Warframe quests. Excalibur Umbra in the Sacrifice is more of a continuation of the War Within and involves a lot of the Operator. Revenant’s quest is barely a quest. But The Deadlock Protocol feels like a return to the old Warframe quest days, with the polish of modern, shiny Warframe. The Deadlock Protocol is Sands of Inaros, but for the modern era. It’s also a pretty fun quest. Also, spoilers ahead! Go play the… [Continue Reading]

How Would Corpus Kuva Liches Even Work?

As with everything in Warframe, we always get a Grineer version of a thing first, followed by a Corpus version. This has been the case for ages. For example, we got the Plains of Eidolon, which is Grineer, then later on we got Fortuna, which is Corpus. The same will happen with Railjack and, eventually, Kuva Liches. But how would Corpus Liches even work? At first, this seems like an easy question to answer. You just have randomly generated Corpus enemies, the same way you do for Grineer Liches. The process would be similar too. You have your Parazon, you… [Continue Reading]

Rambling About the Corpus

The Corpus aren’t treated fairly in Warframe. Most of the time they’re simply set to one side. Most of the time, we have to deal with pissed off Grineer. The Natah quest featured Grineer. The War Within featured Grineer. The Silver Grove, Chains of Harrow, the Plains of Eidolon, the Sands of Inaros and even the shitty quest that is the Limbo Theorem are all Grineer places. What is Corpus-orientated? The Glast Gambit. And that quest was worse than the Limbo Theorem. The best Corpus thing we got lately was the Corpra Tennogen skin for Excalibur, the Supra Vandal, the… [Continue Reading]
