Beefing Up My Operator

It’s been a while since I talked about the Operator, the doofy little teenage kid controlling your metal death machines from a chair in the back of your ship. I think the last time I mentioned them, I was complaining about how my Operator treated Ordis like he was nothing during the Sacrifice quest. But gameplay-wise, Operators aren’t… as bad as you think. As long as you beef them up a little. Your stock Operator straight out of the War Within is weak as heck. That’s mostly intentional though. You’ve just realised you can jump through space and time to… [Continue Reading]

Modular Space Kid Guns

Ever since the Operator turned out to be an actual thing you can use and control, it was guaranteed that one day you’d get weapons for your miniature Spoiler Mode things to use. Amps are the weapons of choice for Operators, built from… uh… um… fish, gems and bits of Sentient enemies. Yeah. I would say Spoiler Alert, but considering the War Within and Plains of Eidolon have Space Kids all over their loading screens, it’s kinda moot now. Okay, so Amps are a weird thing. They’re not guns at all, they’re actually strange contraptions wrapped around the right arm… [Continue Reading]

On Being a Massive Coward

I like to think that I’d be a great NPC for a game like Skyrim. A coward of a person who asks the protagonist to go and fetch some insane item for them because there’s no way they’ll ever be able to obtain it themselves. Then, when danger rears its ugly head, I stand in a corner failing to hit it with my bow and arrows, then panic and run away. On the plus side, at least I’d pay you for your hard work. I’m a coward. I don’t like taking risks. I’ll let the strong ones deal with the… [Continue Reading]

7 Ways to Improve the Operator

I still hate those damn space kids. Right now, they’re a horrible waste of pixels and I hate them and their stupid, hypocritical observations. Yes, the Corpus are greedy, but we’re space ninja mercenaries killing them to get a stupid barrel for a shiny new gun, so get off your damn high horse. That being said, the Operators could all be improved. Here are some ways we can do that.   Level up Operators the same way you level up Warframes. Operators should start at unranked and get to level 30. By using your Operator, you should level him or… [Continue Reading]

One Last Look at the War Within

“Why the fuck would I want to do that?” Those were the fateful words of my brother as he helped me complete the War Within. Those words summed up everything I felt about this quest. That phrase was also repeated several times throughout the quest as well. The War Within is supposed to be about your Tenno space kid growing up and becoming more mature. Well, that’s the underlying plot. Really, the plot drags you kicking and screaming into that, due yo your space kid’s actions, when it should be looking at whatever the hell Teshin was doing, finding the… [Continue Reading]
