Prestige Nightwave Levels Are So Boring

Nightwave seems cool at first. You do things, get points and get rewards. At level 30, you get something REALLY cool. After that though? Well… you get prestige levels. These prestige levels reward 15 Nightwave credits for each one you reach and that’s about it. Actually, sometimes you don’t even get the credits. In previous Nightwaves, people have hit Prestige levels 60, 90 and 120 and ended up stuck. But the rewards for even getting that far are pretty damn mediocre. Why do people keep on going after hitting level 30, and how can we make it better? All you… [Continue Reading]

I’d Like A Nightwave Story About Someone Who Isn’t An Ass

Nightwave’s original premise was quite simple. Over the course of a season or episode, we’d be told a story. As the story went along, we’d learn more clues or get different rewards. However, two things happened as we went along. Firstly, the story complexity increased over time. Glassmaker’s story involved us finding clues, while the Wolf just had us, well, fighting him. The second thing is that things always got worse as time went on. Not only did these episodes all drag on, but they all kinda ended on a low note. Wolf of Saturn Six ended with escaped prisoners… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Intermission 3 is here! How long will it last?

After the slog that was Glassmaker finally ended, we all breathed a sigh of relief. Glassmaker, while being a good idea on the surface, dragged on and consisted of the most annoying content to date. When it finally left at the end of January 2021, Glassmaker had been around for 8 months! While we’re all sick of Nightwave, we still need a way to get Nitain Extract, alternate helmets and Vauban parts. So now we have Nightwave Intermission 3. No story, just tasks. There’s no story behind this intermission. Just like previous intermissions, there’s still a reward path, but no… [Continue Reading]

Glassmaker’s Conclusion isn’t That Satisfactory

The last part of Glassmaker is finally out, and, well, it’s all over, I guess. We get to finally confront Nihil and kick his ass. Except, well, we don’t. After doing yet another dumb clue scene, we can fight our final boss. Of course, we have to spend ages scanning a room for clues first. And then we have to do a jumping puzzle based on those clues. Then you can fight the boss. Yet again, being a Tenno in a Warframe doesn’t matter. The fight against Nihil is simple. You dodge the crystals he shoots from his head, pick… [Continue Reading]

Glassmaker’s Third Act is Out and Tells You Nothing

Alongside the Steel Path, the third act of Nightwave Series 3 is available to play. You can now wander through a third crime scene, looking for clues. This time round, the clues are in even more annoying places, particularly the one about feelings. But if you look around for the objects that aren’t normally there and have a little glow to them, they are easily found. Just need some patience. Anyway, new act, new story? Kinda. This time round, a lone Grineer soldier was turned to glass. Unlike the previous ones though, there was a lack of fighting. This Grineer… [Continue Reading]

Who The Fuck IS Nora Night?

There are tons of mysterious entities in Warframe. From Erra, the Sentient brother of the Lotus, to Onkko and the Quills, all the way to Paladino, Ergo Glast and the Syndicate leaders, we have a lot of crazies. All these strange people who easily communicate with us. Some of these beings only appear once in quests. Or they appear in snapshots and visions, like Erra and the Man in the Wall. But there’s one person who came out from absolutely nowhere. I know we’ve talked about Nightwave a lot lately, but we need to have a look at Nora Night.… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Season 3 Is Basically Already Finished

As of this week, if you have done every single Nightwave task so far, you’ve probably reached level 30. If you have done most of them and skipped a few dailies, then level 30 should be available next week. It’s been, what, five weeks? And Nightwave Season 3 is basically already finished if you play regularly. So, how was it? Meh. Overall, I’d give this season a solid meh/10. It’s nice that we got enemies to farm extra standing from right off the bat, but, if I’m truly honest, this might as well been more of Nightwave Intermission 2. There… [Continue Reading]

On Suddenly Not Caring About This Murder Mystery

At the time of writing, I am at rank 26 of Nightwave. I just got my Umbral Forma which I will proceed to not use. Before that, I got my Warframe slot, which I used for Protea. The Nightwave tasks haven’t been too bad, aside from the headache caused by capturing a Hydralyst. But what about the whole murder mystery thing? I just don’t care. Well, that’s not 100% true. I do care a little bit. In fact, the fact that I manage to catch these early on has gotten us some nice views over on the SPUF of Legend.… [Continue Reading]

Glassmaker’s Mystery Interactive Cinematic Is Kinda Weird

In previous Nightwaves, Nora Night simply had a story to tell. One that somewhat unfolded in a linear way. Although the cinematics were nice, they were pretty damn basic. Even a kid could probably work out that the Wolf didn’t like Alad V or that the Infested would attack. The Glassmaker’s story however is supposed to be a murder mystery, one that the Tenno have to uncover. With Nora voicing over it, of course. We have to do the work. Nora Night has given us a crime scene to investigate. A digital one, pulled out from the Weave, which is… [Continue Reading]
