Gauging Interest: OldG Warframe game nights - Xbox
« on: January 22, 2019, 01:05:04 pm »
From zero to.... somewhere else.


I'm a Warframe noob, I've put some hours in (not loads), but I think this is a quality looter-shooter given it's a free to play game and consistently in the top 10 of the Steam charts when it comes to the PC crowd.

I have a feeling it would be more enjoyable squading up (or whatever the term is in Warframe), with other OldGamerz


Who fancies coming along for the ride?

There's a tutorial walkthrough tutorial right at the start, it might me good to have a go at that on your own to get a feel of it. There's also plenty of YouTube videos out there for you to see what it's about.

I've given it a quick go tonight and it looks alright. So add me to the yes list. Is there a certain  point that you need to get to, to be able to play together?

There are teams of 4.
I don't think you need to get to any certain level to play together, you just need to finish the intro level and get your weapons and choose which Warframe you want to start off in. (most start off with Excalibur)

To get together we just set 'friends only' on the menu screen (top left). and then we go round the blue flashing nodes on planet Earth and then on to other planets.

I kinda like the original incarnation of this. But didnt get around to playing it. Its somewhat different these days though I gather.. But isnt it now way more dashy abouty, runny up the wallsy, jumpy jumpy jumpy ? (Which put me right off)

Never played the original version, but the fluid movement system (dunny up the wallsy!? ;D ) is part of the attraction for me personally. Many other improvements have been made also, it’s a much better game for it.

Excalibur is definitely the most popular starter choice, as correctly modded is still strong at high level, but there’s nothing wrong with the other two starter frames either. You actually get a better version of Excalibur (Umbra) later on. Volt has great crowd control and can give speed boost to his team (movement and reload). Mag is the toughest to play when you only have starter mods and she’s a bit squishy, but she can shred bosses when you get the hang of her powers. Whoever you don’t pick you can acquire later.

Orbs is correct, unfortunately this isn’t cross platform. PC is usually one version ahead of consoles.

Setting up an Oldg clan dojo is a huge amount of work, and would take some dedication to research and provide the resources required. Although it would be very cool, just wanted to let you know it’s a lot of time/effort to do so.

If you need help with anything just shout. ;)

Aww, I was hoping that was a Newcastle expression I wasn’t aware of and not just an amusing typo. :P

Platform = xbox as per thread title.

Don't worry Homer, Warframe is not for everyone, as it's quite a grindy looter shooter.
