I’ve been playing a lot of a game called Warframe recently (and by that I mean for the past month and a half) and I found it really fun. Thing about it is that it’s Free To Play, and even if you don’t shell out money you can still get a lot of really cool shit to play with in game.
I’ve played several hundred hours since I’ve begun, and have since played 398 hours of it (making it my second most played game on steam).
Here’s what makes it really great: Graphics AND gameplay. While it is filled with it’s fair share of bugs (that almost rivals that of Skyrim on launch day), it is still very smooth to play and it is still expanding in content (updating more frequently than other early access games). It is a 3rd person shooter, in a way, much like the Mass Effect trilogy. Unlike the Mass Effect trilogy, combat is much smoother and more fast paced. Unlike the Mass Effect trilogy, the graphics are superior (in my opinion) and look absolutely amazing. It’s optimized pretty well so despite the fact that my laptop runs Borderlands 2 at 20 frames per second on average, Warframe runs smoothly with higher settings at rates higher than 30 frames per second. The only thing that Mass Effect has that Warframe doesn’t is plot and story.
Now here’s the deal: There’s a referral program in Warframe which benefits both the players who sign up through it and those who are giving out the link. WHICH is why I made this post. You can follow this link so I can get some more cool stuff and so you can get an experience boost for your first 7 days of play, which goes a very long way.
Additionally, I hope to start recording some videos that will help out players who are just starting out as well as giving some pointers to help people reach endgame, so look out for those in the future!
(And this game is the reason why I haven’t posted much to both my youtube channel and my tumblr)
