We took a break from GTFO this week as it’s been getting stale for a few of us. I think we’re going to move to play every other week to break things up. Before we started GTFO, our Saturday night group game was Warframe so we headed back over there this weekend.
It’s surprising what was a month and a half off a game will do to your enthusiasm about it. I still enjoy Warframe but logging in last night I didn’t have the excitement I had for it not too long ago. I was farming and progressing on my own, crafting warframes and weapons left and rights. Now I’m just not as into it.
Unbeknownst to us, one of our group members didn’t stop playing when we did. So when we came back to the game last night he had a nice surprise for us. A Railjack.
Now me, being great at avoiding spoilers, didn’t really know what a Railjack was. I assumed it was a ship and you did space ship things in it. I thought it was a one-man thing. But I was wrong. The Railjack was MUCH bigger than I thought it’d be and the gameplay much different.
It’s basically a 4 man crewed ship and each person has a role to fill. There’s the pilot who drives, a gunner who guns, an engineer that mans the forges and patches up wholes in the ship, and the ship boarder who flies around on an Archwing and takes over enemy ships. The whole thing reminds me of Guns of Icarus.
I was the designated engineer for the night. I couldn’t do much because my engineering was level 1 but I fixed a lot of holes in our hull when our shields went down!
The issue we ran into was only the guy with the RailJack could use intrinsic to level up certain roles. So while he kept unlocking all these useful perks the rest of us were stuck at the basic levels. We were hoping it was upgraded to the ship but sadly it was upgraded to the warframe.
It was a fun diversion from the usual gameplay but at the rate we play this game I don’t think the rest of us will be seeing our own Railjacks for a long time.
