I've downloaded, and had a quick play through the first mission thingy. Looks ok for a completely free to play game, is akin to L4D2 in that it's pretty much designed from the outset to be a 4 player co-op

get it done, might amuse for a few evenings, even if the enemies do look like that green thing from red dwarf - Legion

I will have a proper look later but it looks promising and as it's free you can't really go wrong :-)

I tried this out for an hour today and it is rather good! It's Borderlands and Left 4 Dead fused together in a very scifi way. I can see this would be great over coop as I have only played solo so far. Free as well! :-) nice find Dyson!

I will post more when I have played it some more to get a better feel for it but I recommend it and it shows great potential.

Well I have played some more of this game now and am still enjoying it. I have noticed that the difficulty starts to ramp up quickly for solo play - yet when you play online with others it makes things much easier.

I have got to level 11 with my Tanno and picked up quite a few nice upgrades for my weapons etc. I have even started crafting a sword called Cronos, that should be ready to use tonight :-)

I have definitely noticed that this game must be played with very much with a "push forward" mentality. If you sit back, stay behind cover and attempt to pick off all the enemies you will never get anywhere as the game seems to throw wave after wave on you and you run out of ammo and get swamped very quickly.

It seems the best tactics are to keep moving forward as fast as you can. When I was playing online with others we managed to do this very successfully, but it can be a real challenge if playing solo.

I thought I would also mention however, that if you want any of the decent stuff (in your lifetime at least), you need to pay real money for in-game "platinum" to purchase them. Think along the lines of Neverwinter and that's how it works. So although it is free to play, it's also pay-(quite-a-lot)-to-get-the-decent-stuff.

Judging by what you get for your money it also seems very expensive. I have heard that you can get blueprints to craft most of the stuff using purely in-game credits, but how easy this is I am not sure. You can get blueprints for weapons and warframes. Given that you are looking at paying about $20 for a single warframe, I wonder just how obscure they are. It does look like weapon slots cannot currently be found this way though :-(

Sounds like it has good potential as a multiplayer game then but not so much as a solo game.  So like Neverwinter you have to pay a lot of real money to get all the good stuff o well nevermind it seems lots of games are going like this.

I will have to give this a good see what i think so were you playing with Sepi last night he was on Warframe?

That's not a good thing in my books. The whole DLC and Pay-to-Win schemes I am not a big fan of. It is a shame that so many games are going this way - it ends up being much more expensive for true fans of the game, basically just a huge cash-grab. I would rather just pay for the game and never have to worry about unloading any more cash on it again.

Regardless, you do not have to pay a single coin for this game if you don't want to. Only an elitist, completionist or Gregulus would consider doing so in reality.

I was not on with Sephi, just a few randoms, but it went okay. Be good when we have a proper group of us playing for lan nights me-thinks. Only problem I see is that with only 2.0 character slots, we would need a designated coop character or else suffer the consequences of being all over the shop with different levelled characters (like we did with Borderlands 2). I am not sure how the system works with characters of varying levels - it is something we will have to investigate.

On another note, the levels are random too. It's very similar to the way Hellgate generated levels - where they had specific built rooms and the game joined them all together randomly. This means if you fail a mission, you will be playing an entirely different version of it the next time you play it.

From what I have seen so far, it does not look as bad as you may think. I have already managed to get a Braton rifle, Lex pistol and Chronos sword using just crafting and in-game credits. Warframe blueprints are around 40k to buy, plus materials.

Glad to hear it's taken off, I've only played the first mission though I thought there were only 4 frames top choose from? I liked the idea of being able to chuck Jenkins but there were some other powers that seemed cooler on the other classes

There are 3 warframes to choose from to begin with, but there are a lot more you can unlock with game play.

Ended up having a bit of a late one yesterday so didn’t get to download it. I have gone for the infallible ‘Post-it note on the phone’ technique to remember today.

I am not sure what time i will be about on Friday. 

I have estate agents coming round at the weekend to take pictures of the house and have to go to IKEA Friday after work to get a few bits to make it look pretty!

If i am back in good time i will be on and yes i think we should give this a go.
