Not Sure I Like This Whole No Warframes Thing…

The other day I talked about the Warframe Operation, Orphix Venom. This event is really weird because it doesn’t involve Warframes. I mean, you spawn in as your Warframe, you run to the first objective in your Warframe, but that’s it. Orphix Venom is about one thing: Your Necramech. It’s also part of a growing trend where Warframes are, well, undesired. We’re completely removing the game’s namesake from the gameplay. Think about it. This game is called Warframe. The point of the game is to pilot biomechanical suits called Warframes and use them to slaughter our way to a better… [Continue Reading]

Operation Orphix Venom is Here

We haven’t had an Operation in Warframe for a while. The last one was Scarlet Spear, which was supposed to be the start of the New War. However current events on planet earth ended up delaying the New War completely. After all, the Sentients didn’t want to get infected. But now the Sentients are back in an event that completely removes the Warframe from Warframe. Operation Orphix Venom is a weird event. Basically, this is the Condrix ground mission on Earth, from Scarlet Spear. Except there’s a massive field around each Orphix that literally kicks you out of your Warframe… [Continue Reading]

The Sentients are Bastards

The Sentients are bastards. There, I said it. While maybe insulting the next biggest threat is probably a bad idea, I want to point out that the Sentients are bastards and they could have stopped all of this. There never had to be a new war. Or, really, an old war. But here we are, fighting Sentients. But what ARE Sentients? The Sentients are an AI race created by Orokin engineers, who were designed to go to the “Tau system to prepare it for Orokin rule”. They were given the ability to adapt, build and terraform and were sent to… [Continue Reading]

The Power That Is The Adaptation Mod

Adaptation is an amazingly powerful mod. It’s a Warframe mod that allows you to adapt to damage that you take for a small amount of time, earning damage resistance in the process. The best way to describe it, really, is with an example. But trust me, it’s a cool mod. So let’s say that I am playing as Nidus and I get shot by a Grineer Lancer. That Lancer does Impact damage to me, so I get 10% Impact damage resistance for a little bit from my Adaptation mod. I get shot again before the Adaptation damage resistance goes away,… [Continue Reading]

The Brand New Disruption Game Mode

Disruption is a new game mode that was added alongside the rest of the Jupiter facelift update, combining the new tilesets, Alad V, the Sentients, the Corpus and Amalgams all in one place. It’s an endless game mode which scales worryingly fast and has a strange reward tier system. It’s also very dimly lit, unlike many other Jupiter tile sets. The premise is simple. You kill enemies, find conduit keys and shove them into corresponding terminals. You have to defend the terminals. But as each one is activated, Alad V will release a Demolyst, a strong, ability-resisting hulking red Amalgam.… [Continue Reading]

The Fight with Rory the Ropalolyst

The other major thing added in the Jovian Concord is the massive fight with the flying Eidolon, the Ropalolyst. It is a gigantic, screeching monster that spends its time hovering around glowing generators that can power a floating city. The Ropalolyst is also an intelligent being who has commanded Alad V to work for him, so when us Tenno come by, Alad V is very happy to have an opportunity to switch loyalties yet again. So we murder the Ropalolyst, a certain someone gets all pissed off, Alad V is happy and we get some minor loot in the form… [Continue Reading]
