Warframe - F2P Sci-fi L4D-like
« on: June 26, 2012, 02:57:59 am »

Have you read that title? Did a maniacal grin paint itself onto your face? No? You're a liar, get outta here. Yes? Okay, here you go.
Quote
“Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WARFRAME introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WARFRAME on the cusp of the Grineer’s victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WARFRAMES – an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WARFRAMES lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno’s only hope for survival.”
That's the entirety of the availible description. :( Also, there is an... uh... 3D screenshot and a possibility to reserve a nickname RIGHT NOW. So get to it.

I signed up, not even sure if I'll have the inclination to try out the beta when it comes out.

If I may suggest, having some others who definitely want in for the beta to have their chance at referrals.

I signed up, and am now known as malicious_pear. No, I don't know what made me use that name.

First impressions, having gone through the tutorial and poked around the menus.

One: I hope there's never PvP because unless you pay to "go pro" you can't upgrade your weapons as much, and I'm talking upgrades, not side grades - flat increases to damage, RoF, clip size etc.

Two: It might just be me, but the skills don't seem to work. I'll play a bit more and see what's what, but the skill in the tutorial wouldn't activate for me, which was rather irritating.

Three: Urghhhh mouse sensitivity in menus. It can't be changed, and it's really slow, so it's annoying to navigate things when you have to drag your mouse all the way across the mouse pad again and again.

Four: Controller vibration won't turn off, which is irritating, because it means I have to rest my controller on top of my hat so it isn't vibrating against my PC tower next to the desk. Oh well.

Okay, some more things after having played the first mission.

Grenades are bullshit. There's no indication they're there and they're likely to instakill you, which means spending a revive or going back to the last checkpoint, which can often be quite far back. Revives are purchased using the realmoneys currency, platinum.

It's horribly cover-based, with no actual cover mechanics. You will be hiding behind walls, angling the camera to see your enemies and shoot at them while they can't shoot at you.

The game has a class-system in the form of different exo suits. Buying exo suits costs Platinum.

I honestly can't enjoy this game. It just has too many points like this that all add up to it being bleh. I know, beta is beta, but if it's this bad now, what are the chances it'll be even semi-decent when it's released?

some of these issues are really not issues. (some of these may be just me repeating scriptwolf)

one: Well it says co-op, so hopefully no pvp. I agree with you on this one.
two: most likely just a beta bug, because it worked fine for me.
three: I haven't noticed anything too irritating with the menu sensitivity, but I guess that's personal taste.
four: can't you disconnect your controller?
I haven't noticed any grenades, just mines. I don't doubt their existence, but they aren't common. Also, revives are refilled daily for free. (or pay to refill)
You aren't playing the game right if you're constantly in cover. They give you the roll and slide for a reason, and that reason is to dodge or get in close, and to shoot on the move, respectively. Also, most classes seem to have at least one "mobility skill," like Excalibur's super jump. One last bit of rant, you can pay to instantly get more frames, or ingame credits to get the blueprints.

my god I need to control my rants better

I may be being stupid here, but when I get my free key where do I put it? I made an account and did the email activation... And now I can't find anywhere to enter the key. :S

Edit: Nevermind, found a link in the FAQ. D'oh.
