I don't own the game but can their system detect between a rage quit (pulling connection) and a lose of connection? My internet is super fast but really unreliable. It'd suck to be punished because my internet decided to crap out.

I completed MGS4 for the first time last week and it's such a strange game. It's the best playing game by far (I mean, until MGS5 in a few weeks) but when it comes to actually playing it, you barely do that. My total time for MGS4 was 15 hours and 30 mins and I felt like I had played for maybe half of that. Act 3 doesn't help either. It's the most BS part of the game which is a shame because it's so atmospheric. You're right, it does feel like you're in some sort of noirish city but the game does nothing with it. It's a tailing mission followed by a turret sequence and ends with a shitty boss battle. That's it in terms of actually playing but there are just hours of cutscenes or what felt like hours anyway. Thankfully Act 4 is legit great.

Here's that video I said I'd make:

@handlas: It's just for PC right now but you can probably expect to see U17 on consoles probably sometime in September.

After a brief run around in Conclave, I'm certain that Parkour 2.0 is faster, at least for those who never were able to master coptering. I can now fling myself across rooms with more control and in ways that just look badass. I was running up and along walls then dashing and gliding through the air. I'll try and record a video tomorrow and show you guys what the new system is capable of.

I have yet to even play the game but I got these earlier today.

@drakoji: they're actually planning to change the star chart again to make progress make more sense but it's very early and likely won't come until U18. Warframe still has a progression problem. The game has no real goal. You can go level to level but ultimately you're grinding out for money and materials to make new weapons and frames that help you unlock more new weapons and frames, rinse and repeat.

@kenori: Unfortunately not. Before the new consoles came out, I believe that was the intention but due to cert times the console versions of the game are really far behind the PC release.

#8 Edited by mrcraggle (2212 posts) -

@oursin_360: I imagine the PS4 and Xbox One versions of U17 are at least a month if not longer just due to how cert works. They're developing 16.11.4 now for consoles now.

Echoes of the Sentient

Update 17 has just gone live and with it comes the all new Parkour 2.0 system. While coptering may be gone, the new system should allow for even more creative ways to use the environment to your advantage (stamina is also dead, yay!). And as with every major update comes a new Warframe, this time is Equinox, a Warframe that has the ability to shift between day and night forms. U17 also includes a brand new tileset. This new tileset actually incorporates the Arcwing to be used under water, not just in space. There are new additional maps to the conclave as well if you're into that. Unfortunately, the quest that was meant to go with U17 has been delayed. It seems as though it had a lot of bugs that were holding up the release of U17 so it's been pushed back to a later update. Once a full changelog is published, I'll update this post with new info.

Update:

As promised, here is the full change log. I put it in a spoiler block just so it doesn't take up so much room because there is a heck of a lot (includes updates 17, 17.0.1 and 17.0.2.

Update 17

New Warframe: Equinox

Split between day and night, Equinox manifests aggressive and defensive forms at will. Equinox’s powers include:

  • Power 1 - Metamorphosis: Switch forms between Day and Night.
    • Day: Grants bonus damage and speed.
    • Night: Grants bonus shields and armor.
  • Power 2 - Rest and Rage
    • (Day) Rage: Enemies in a small targeted area become vulnerable to damage.
    • (Night) Rest: Enemies in a small targeted area are put to sleep.
  • Power 3 - Pacify and Provoke
    • (Day) Provoke: Increases the Power Strength of nearby allies.
    • (Night) Pacify: Reduces damage dealt by nearby enemies.
  • Power 4 - Mend and Maim
    • (Day) Maim: Nearby enemies are bled and then subjected to a wave of slashing force.
    • (Night) Mend: Allies are healed with each nearby enemy killed.
Parkour 2.0

This complete overhaul of Warframe’s parkour system brings a dramatic change to one of Warframe’s core elements: movement. With these changes players will be given true freedom of movement without limitations such as being required to use specific weapons or becoming locked into restrictive animations.

Players will be given a quick tutorial of the changes made in Parkour 2.0 when logging in for the first time after the Update is live. Players can choose to skip this tutorial, or replay it from the Advanced Movement menu in the Training section of the Codex.

The following features have been added to Warframe’s movement system:

  • Double Jump: Players can now use a second jump while in mid-air. Players will be able to jump again immediately after touching any surface or enemy.
  • Bullet Jump: Pressing the ‘Jump’ button after sliding will send the player into a mid-air dash, temporarily improving movement speed. Players can use a Bullet Jump as a double jump in any direction.
  • Wall Latch: Pressing the ‘Right Mouse Button’ button against a wall will allow players to latch onto flat surfaces for a limited duration. Players may fire their equipped Primary or Secondary weapon while using Wall Latch.
  • Wall Dash: Pressing the ‘Jump’ button while against any surface will allow players to hop along the surface in any direction. This can be used to scale vertical surfaces, and can be chained indefinitely.
  • Aim Gliding: Using the ‘Aim’ button while in mid-air will slow the player’s fall speed, enabling a slow glide that players can fire their weapon in any direction from.
  • Ziplines: Pressing X while near a zipline will allow players to jump directly onto the zipline. Players can now run or dash along ziplines, and X to jump on a zipline can be done after a double jump.
  • Stamina has now been removed from the game.
  • Parrying now only blocks a base percentage of incoming damage.
    • Channeling while parrying will block 100% of incoming damage, and reflect a percentage of the damage back at the cost of Energy.
Chroma + Stamina Related Changes
  • Chroma's green energy perk now gives a buff to holster and reload speed instead of affecting Stamina.
  • Mods that previously affected Stamina have now been converted to the appropriate amount of Fusion Core.
  • All Alternate Helmets that had Stamina-related effects have been given new abilities:
  • Arcane Chorus Helmet - This helmet is worn by Banshee, and adds Power Efficiency, but reduces duration of Aim Glide and Wall Latch.
  • Arcane Flux Helmet - This helmet is worn by Nova, and increases duration of Aim Glide and Wall latch, but reduces Health.
  • Arcane Storm Helmet - This helmet is worn by Volt, and increases Power Strength, but reduces duration of Aim Glide and Wall Latch.
  • Arcane Gambit Helmet - This helmet is worn by Vauban, and increases velocity of parkour maneuvers, with a reduction to Power Duration.
  • Arcane Scorpion Helmet - This helmet is worn by Ash, increases duration of Aim Glide and Wall Latch while sacrificing Power Efficiency.
  • Arcane Menticide Helmet - This helmet is worn by Nyx, increases velocity of parkour maneuvers with a drain on Shields.
Uranus Tileset Expansion

Uranus Mission nodes have been given a total overhaul with the new Grineer Underwater Lab tileset. With this expansion come unique Missions that require players to swap back and forth between their Archwing in order to access (and traverse) the hostile underwater environment that has kept these labs hidden for so long. Players must have an equippable Archwing in order to access these Missions.

New Boss Fight: Tyl Regor
  • Tyl Regor is back and is stronger than ever. Assassinate this skilled threat amidst the oceans of Titania, Uranus!
Exilus Mod Slots

Fuze appears to have stolen and appropriated art from several places. If the Master Chief image wasn't blatant enough, Dan LuVisi of "Last Man Standing" fame found some of his work stolen today. It's a horrible practice that is unfortunately not uncommon.

Man, China. Don't. Care.

I can't actually tell if they've even done anything. Their Product page simply shows the above and they apparently have some console coming out in June 2015.
