Khora’s Weird New Deluxe Skin

What is it with me and my favourite frames getting… weird skins? My favourite frame, Volt, never got a deluxe skin, and instead got a weird “Proto-but-not-proto” skin. And now, my second favourite frame, Khora, has got a weird skin of her own. The Khora Urushu skin is… kinda weird. It’s definitely a Khora skin, the problem here isn’t like Ember and her weird, bird-like deluxe skin. But something feels off about it. It’s cool but… not cool? I mean, at first glance, the Urushu skin looks amazing. Khora gains this cool, geisha-like look, complete with thorny flowers and an… [Continue Reading]

The Steel Path is… Interesting…

The Steel Path is basically a Hard Mode for Warframe. For years, players have begged for a high level version of normal missions, so they don’t need to wait an hour to fight level 100+ enemies. Things like Elite Sanctuary Onslaught, Liches and Arbitrations weren’t enough. People wanted more. So we got the Steel Path. Which just plops 100 levels on everything, gives everything +250% health, shields and armour and calls it a day. You just redo the entire star chart, with 100 more levels. With a premise that simple, you wouldn’t think there was much to talk about, right?… [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]

Recommended Augments for Warframes

Warframe has a huge amount of, uh, Warframes. And with lots of Warframes comes lots of mods. But we also have plenty of Augment mods, which alter the abilities of various Warframes. Now, some Augment mods are simple tweaks and changes. Some of them alter how an ability works. Others are basically straight buffs to various abilities. While a lot of augments are situational, some augments are kinda too good to not use. Let’s look at some of them. Oberon’s Phoenix Renewal Phoenix Renewal is an augment for Oberon’s Renewal ability, which heals you over time. Phoenix Renewal revives you… [Continue Reading]

The Ropalolyst – The Worst Best Boss or the Best Worst Boss?

Ah, Nightwave. Bless its cotton socks. It exists to give us free things and remind us of things we’d forgotten about. In this case, an elite Weekly task was to simply kill the Ropalolyst. A very easy 7,000 standing for anyone who’s completed the Sacrifice. Except… ugh, the Ropalolyst fight is bloody awful, for all the wrong reasons. A great fight, but easily ruined. And still broken, a year later. Don’t fight the Ropalolyst on public matchmaking! The Ropalolyst can be a very buggy fight for anyone who isn’t the host. Oh, the fight can bug out for the host… [Continue Reading]

Weird Little Warframe Facts About Weapons

Years and years ago, aabicus wrote an article about little-known mechanics in Team Fortress 2. He went into a detailed list of various things that really aren’t obvious at all. Some of these were minor differences like how a Sniper’s rifle’s laser will detect invisible spies. However, some mechanics were rather large, like how crouching breaks hitboxes. The article is quite an interesting read, and aabicus suggested I write one about Warframe, with my insane knowledge. Small problem with that: There are SO MANY little-known mechanics that it’s impossible to list even some of them in a single item. That… [Continue Reading]

A Strange, Strange Criticism of the Warframe Meta

On June 25th, the Steel Path was announced for Warframe. Simply put, the Steel Path would be an extra option on every single node with added difficulty. Instead of, say, going to E Prime and fighting level 5 enemies, the Steel Path would let you fight level 105 enemies. According to the recent blog post, the Steel Path allows access to higher level enemies. And, of course, there’s a few rewards thrown in. And, amazingly, some mastery. But it’s been clearly stated that this is not an “end game”. In the conversations I’ve seen though, there’s this weird talk about… [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]

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]

A Ramble About Animation Sets – Which Animation Sets are Good or Bad

Animation sets are an interesting little idea. Each frame has their own personality, their own way that they stand. While the way a frame holds a weapon or idles is simple, it does make every frame more unique. We always get two: an agile and a noble animation set. And, over time, these animation sets have become more fancy. But the more interesting thing is that you can purchase these. You can buy a set and apply it on any frame you like. Of course, some of these are more more popular than others. And, of course, I have a… [Continue Reading]
