Antharax Posted January 3, 2013 Share Posted January 3, 2013 (edited) *Skip to the end of the post for the short version.* A long time ago(Read: About 6-9 months ago) I read about this game in an article of PC gamer. Considering how Global Agenda's borefest of PvE had some sort of charm on me I decided to register for the closed beta. Fastfoward to yesterday. I checked my email and there it was. Congratulations Warframe has chosen you to enter the closed beta and so forth. So I left it to download for a while and finally there it was with it's pretty login screen and excalibur was there, sitting in meditation. First thing I was astonished by is how smooth the game ran on my 5 year old pc. It had one of the best frames per second I've ever had on a modern game. Which is odd considering Planetside 2 ran like butter during beta, so I'm under the impression that my computer is blessed. Back to the point, before hearing anything I quickly ran off to the options menu and I'm glad to say I could turn off blooooom(funny word) and adjust my resolution. One thing that was missing was an FoV slider, which I'll mention why I want it. Anyways after the tutorial mission I was glad to see that there wasn't a huge tutorial arse in the way that considers me a dimwit and points out mysteries such as "DEES BIG X CLOSES GEAM". I went on the first mission to some ship whose name I forgot as Volt to electrocute anything that moves. After running around in circles a few times around the ship, checking for any goodies that haven't been looted and wondering where the heck are my powers I finally finished the first mission. Checking back, I notice the Arsenal and I descover that I could have upgraded my WarFrame and weapons. One tactical facepalm and 5 minutes of scanning the market later I'm here writing this. +Pretty Graphics, Great FrameRates. +Amazing Gameplay. +Hard. Enemies actually hit you instead of stratiegically miss all their bullets and yell out RELOADING! +Market seems to allow you to choose between currencies. +Small range of free options for cosmetic customisation. +-Silly Name +- A bit unclear on the controls as I was wondering how I was foward rolling, but I'm glad I wasn't hand held into it. -No FoV silder.(Field of View) The reason I wanted this is at some points(such as diving through the air like Max Payne) Volts limbs kept getting the way. -No others as of yet but I've only played once so what the hell do I know. Questions: 1) When I was browsing the market I kept wondering what the heck Silveranium or Platinum or Fartinum was(And what the actual name of it was). I kept wondering until I encountered the dreadful "GET [insert currency name here] NOW!" button. Doesn't matter, my question is, is that currency(let's just call it Steve) gained only by microtransactions or are there other methods(achievements...etc) and is there something I should know before spending my Steve on refilling revives or is Steve nothing more than a shortcut to getting all the fancy blazing guns quickly? 2) What are blueprints? The Steve purchased Warframes didn't have the words BluePrint in them so I'm guessing you buy them and you do something to gain the new WarFrame like spending more credits? 3) Is there some sort of beginners guide? I've never had any luck with the search function on any forum. Hello Warframe. It's good to be a part of you. Don't screw it up.
