Wait, is Mike just joining GBeast at this point? Not that I'm complaining, he makes great conversation, I'm just worried that Bakalar's feelings will be hurt.

I love seeing the east crew react to Mike playing Warframe. I also feel that I need to get deeper into Warframe.

Dungeon of the Endless is SO good. So happy to see Vinny and crew enjoying such a hidden(lost?) gem.

Wow two of some of my favorite games of all time. What a huge surprise. Dungeon of the Endless was my game of the year the year it came out. It's extremely hard and unforgiving though even when you understand all the systems involved.

@vinny

Endless Space is perhaps one of the best 4xis game out there. Amplitude studios knows how to make one hell of a game but they have been criminally overlooked even though their games are exceptional.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth but while it's been nice to see East videos going up so quick it stinks that the download consistently isn't ready for at least another 6+ hours.

Oh man, Vinny describing his understanding of Warframe as a child describing his drawing is a classic. Best of Giantbomb right there.

I had a similar problem with Altered Beast today but this video won't go past the 1:31:59 mark for me. There might be something wrong with your uploading process.

Awesome to see some Warframe love on GBeast. It’s a game I come back to every year and sink another 50 hours into. It’s gone through so many changes and improvements since it first released.

The big problem with the game is that there are just too many systems with poor explanation for noobs. I love all the crazy stuff they’ve bolted on over the years but you really need a friend who can walk you through stuff in the beginning.

Can’t believe Mike didn’t blow their minds a little further by showing them some space combat or open-world fishing/mining/hoverboarding. Maybe he was concerned Vinny’s head would explode.

@mb2814: It's odd because their videos were working fine after the website redesign, but now it seems to be really finicky again. :(

Warframe is real good! And of note if you can't follow what Mike is doing...he's not even maximizing for speed. So just know it goes about 3x as fast at the high end

Warframe is 100x better if you buy a couple of the premium color palettes and actually color your weapons like Nerf guns.

They "go up" faster but it's useless when the video player once again has major issues and like you said the download links show up hours later. They had recently fixed the player issues and now it's back to consistently having issues until it's actually "up".

I am so glad Mike was able to show them Warframe. Just the tip of the iceberg too.

Really love vinny's reaction to everything in the game.

Content and mission wise Mike has only shown on the playdate what was released back in 2015. So there is a lot more to show

@vinny@alex

Would have like to seen Alex's reaction and opinion to the recent Night Wave plot, there is a character called Nora Night which is basically a character was inspired by D.J. (Lynne Thigpen) from the Warriors. The story revolves around catching a fugitive called "The Wolf" (That's right there's bit of Carmen Sandiego in Warframe)

Also, If anyone on the PC is looking to get into the game check out the Giant Bomb PC Clan. https://www.giantbomb.com/warframe/3030-38788/forums/pc-giant-bomb-alliance-2019-3-07-operation-buried--1760576/

The clan was started back in 2014 and still quite active!

On the subject of stuff the Warframe devs did that the community reacted badly to, when I first started playing the game they tried adding a stamina system to movement and it was awful. It turned the game into Walkframe. They hotfixed it out pretty damn fast.

Also the most bizarre thing about Warframe is that it's basically a sequel to Dark Sector.

I wish there was a version of Warframe that I could pay for, and not deal with the whole "wait to build stuff" thing. It's a really fun game, but the loop just doesn't do it for me.
