The Scaling Level of Pointlessness When It Comes to Cosmetics

It’s funny how some things come to you. I’ve got a good 1500+ hours playing Team Fortress 2, and it took me a good part of them to realise that cosmetics are actually almost completely pointless since you never actually see them. They are only ever seen by other people, unless you use that weird console command that shows your body. But even then, your head isn’t visible and you don’t even get to always see unusual effects. Aside from one obscure console command though, you’re dressing yourself up so you can look at yourself in menus. Any cosmetics you… [Continue Reading]

Never Finding The Perfect Animation Set

Animation sets in Warframe are a neat way to give individual Warframes a bit of personality, rather than them all being mindless heaps of metal and flesh. It’s not really a personality but something that makes them more relatable. The very feminine frames like Ember and Mirage will stand with hands on hips, in a vaguely seductive manner, more masculine frames like Rhino will stand tall and proud and some frames will toy with the immense power at their fingertips. In fact, the newer the Warframe, the more personality they seem to have in their animation sets alone. The newest… [Continue Reading]

More on Warframe Armour Sets

I mentioned the other day how the Lodestar Armour Bundle looked really cool but annoyingly floated in mid air rather than being connected to your Warframe’s body, but frankly that article has gone and opened up a can of worms and 500 word rambles. The armour in Warframe is kinda weird and ill-fitting and quite often not armour at all. Let’s take the Avia armour set. Which amazingly has THREE variants: normal, prisma and solstice. But none of these pieces would provide actual armour, they’re just little shiny bits that hang off our arms and legs. There’s no protection to… [Continue Reading]

1000 Days Logging In And All I Got Was This Armour Set

I finally hit it. The 1000 login milestone. Actually, I hit it about two weeks ago but got distracted by a bunch of other things and never got around to writing about it. But either way, Maroo (it’s always her or Simaris, my two least favourite allies) popped by, said some random crap then left me with the Lodestar Armour Bundle. Really, you’d think, after 1000 days, I’d actually call login rewards by their proper term, Daily Tributes, but oh well, they’re daily login rewards, that’s what I remember them as. The Lodestar Armour Bundle is the last of the… [Continue Reading]

Toggle Prime Details

The other day, I hit Mastery Rank 26, currently the highest rank you can get. Feeling proud of myself, doubly so because I managed to finish the MR26 test in one attempt without even seeing what it was, I decided to treat myself. How? By buying myself a nice Tennogen skin. I’ve actually been considering buying a Tennogen skin for a long time. It was always guaranteed to be for Volt, because Ivara’s Tennogen skins aren’t that nice (even the Youkai bunny-like skin) and Khora doesn’t have any yet. In fact, I don’t really want Khora Tennogen at all unless… [Continue Reading]

On Having Multiple Colour Schemes

With so many colour palettes, skins, armour sets and fancy syandanas, there’s so many ways you can customize your Warframes AND your weapons. And your companions. And your ship. And your Archwing. And your ship’s interior. In fact, there’s so much customization that I was originally very lost and confused, not sure what colour to make what item. In fact, in my very early days, I bounced around constantly on colour schemes. Even when I settled on yellow, I didn’t know which yellow to pick. Or what colours should go alongside that yellow.I went through a couple of colour phases,… [Continue Reading]

The Curiosity of the Day of the Dead Theme

A quick heads up, the Halloween colour palette is currently available for 1 credit (yes, credit!) on the Warframe market. Simply search Halloween in the store and buy the palette and it’s yours forever. It consists of some very rich reds, oranges and yellows, as well as some good natural greens. The bottom most yellow is actually the colour I use on all my Warframes, so for that reason alone, you should get it. The palette goes away on November 2nd, so get it now while you can, since it’s basically free. As well as the free Halloween palette, there’s… [Continue Reading]

On Making Your Warframes Look Like Sexy People In Armour

Let’s be honest. A lot of Warframes aren’t exactly pretty to look at. They’re vaguely humanoid but apart from that, it’s a mess of armour and lumps and bits and pieces. It’s incredibly difficult to make a Warframe look traditionally sexy. But it’s not impossible. The best way to make a Warframe into a sexy person is to use a handful of skins and a handful of colours. Unfortunately, the most human-like skins are generally Tennogen. The most famous sexy skin is the Stinger Tennogen skin for Nova, which makes her look like she’s wearing some sort of latex suit… [Continue Reading]

The Naru Syandana and Other Tennogen Items

So after Christmas, I caved and bought myself a Tennogen item. The Naru Syandana is a pair of wings based on the Naberu Halloween-exclusive cosmetic. It cost €5.99, was modeled and textured by members of the community and can be equipped on any Warframe. The wings lower themselves when walking, running and aiming and open up while bullet jumping or whenever you visit a public place like a relay or Cetus. The price seems a little bit high, but the people who made the item need to get paid, you know? Tennogen items are voted on via the Steam Workshop… [Continue Reading]

Not At All Dragon-y in any Way

Chroma is not a dragon. He’s a weird, ugly thing that wears the skin of a ‘dragon’ made out of the same stuff Sentients are made out of. He’s a dragon only in the loosest sense of the word. Chroma is a weird, ugly mess of a Warframe and I don’t understand him. Of course, what I don’t understand, I don’t like. Looks-wise, Chroma is horrible. He’s lumpy and ugly. He doesn’t have wings. He has lumps on his back where wings are supposed to go. He has a fat spade of a tail. He looks wrinkly and horrible. Luckily,… [Continue Reading]
