I love this game. It's inventive, evolving and most of all completely free. Somehow they manage to constantly be updating and creating new content none the less. This is why we're here today.
Warframe has reinvented their melee combat. Some moves and combos have been altered with varying reception from players. There is one major change that only makes sense, You no longer have to holster your gun and retrieve your melee weapon before being in full melee combat (combos can be used). Now simply tapping the former “quick melee" button brings your melee into the forefront keeping it there until you fire your gun which switches you back. Creating fluid transitions between weapons, even while in the air, this is the sign of a true ninja.
The simplicity of the new melee swapping combat could have complicated combo completion but digital extremes has taken care of that. You'll be able to make a few attacks, shoot someone or block a few bullets if, needed, and go right back into melee without breaking your combo. Finally you'll be able to make the appropriate battle decision without worrying about losing your combo streak to do so.
This update also brings up an improvement with ground slams in the form of “aiming”. I know, weird concept Right? Being able to aim your attacks. The reality is I had accepted it originally without even thinking about it and now I wonder how I just passed that over! There are questions as to whether starting height, distance from enemy and weapon type used will have greater impacts in the future. Being able to aim is good enough for now.
Finally the last thing I want to touch on is that while having your melee weapon equipped your Tenno automatically blocks bullets from sources your “aimed at". In other words if your receptacle is targeting an enemy that is firing at you while your melee weapon is equipped you don't have to hold down a button to block anymore.
All in all these updates are adding a different play style that is a lot more fluid and fun to play. It takes some getting used to but I believe you'll enjoy the changes. I'm look forward to the next part of the update.
Rising Tide Update
What is the Warframe: Rising Tide update?
This expansion is a multi-quest effort to build a drydock and assemble a war-ship called the Railjack. Missions include resource gathering, blueprint hunt and salvage recover! In future expansions, players will actually pilot ships and engage in space battles, in what is to be the Empyrean update!
Rising Tide release date: November 22 - Available now on Console and PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One!
Rising Tide is a completely free to play expansion, you can play today!
Update: Now available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch!!
Warframe has taken to space, as you and your friends can now pilot the Railjacks you built in the Rising Tide expansion! Work as a team to pilot the ship, put out fires and man the turrets against enemy ships. Solo play is also possible but slightly limited, with more options coming in 2020.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!
Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
