Yes, that was a Full Metal Jacket pun. I know, it was pretty clever.
But let’s move onto to something equally as awesome as I am, Warframe. A mission based online shooter – a lot like Mass Effect 3 multiplayer but with objectives and bigger focus on RPG elements. You are a Tenno, one of the last of a frozen race – thawed out and suited up in a Warframe. The ultimate combat suit. Your global mission is to reconquer this portion of the Galaxy, and revive the Tenno race. When you first start playing, you choose from a couple of different Warframes and you can unlock more later. They are all based similarly, bit of rifle focus, some special abilities, and some close combat abilities, all lovingly balanced with Health.
Different classes have different focuses with different abilities, it’s all lovely and dandy – but is it fun? I say sort of. This is definitely a game you need to pick up with your friends, not by yourself and certainly not playing catch up while they power level you. The more you play, the more abilities, upgrades, weapons and equipment you unlock – there’s even boss battles and resource management! It’s a lot of interesting genre’s thrown together, but not a lot of fun solo and it’s quite back breaking stuff playing solo actually. In any case, grab some friends and head on over to the closed beta giveaway here!
They have actually just released Update 6, it includes two more Warframes and a few new ways of moving around – Ziplining and Wall Running, available to all players. GunZ anyone?
Have you seriously not heard of GunZ?
